The menagerie of Silverspire is a vast, sprawling area that covers an ever-expanding acreage outside the castle. It is marked off by a woven wall of stone and within every type of animal known to Weirmonken, and some known only in other lands, can be found.

Or at least, that is the boast of the Huntsman. However, the depths of Weirmonken always have more animals to offer and new exhibits must always be forming.

While the Huntsman bears the responsibility of the Menagerie in general and the specific task of ensuring it remains stocked and the details of its inhabitants recorded, there are typically several people charged with the feeding and caring of the animals themselves.

Tertiary Menagerie

This rather bucolic place is closest to Silverspire and holds all the herbivores in one very large area. There are trees, a river, and typically the animals care mostly for themselves.

Examples of Inhabitants


Mimics:These creatures look rather like sloths in their natural forms. Gentle and social, they’ve adopted a rather unique defense mechanism in their ability to mimic the forms and, to a limited degree, the vocalizations of others. When threatened, they shift and, typically, the confusion of the predator lends the mimic time to run.


Aserbes: The aserbe is, in general, a rather intelligent animal. It has a highly developed sense of smell for the finding of food and is capable of learning if provided said food as incentive. In fact, in domesticated versions of the animal, it is said there are only two priorities for the beast. Food and the receiving of affection.

Secondary Menagerie

Individual areas for species are separated by the net-like stone walls that also encircle the menagerie proper. Stone paths between the paddocks lead to frequent hubs that branch off into several monitored areas.

Examples of the Inhabitants


Allibat: The Allibat closely resembles its alligator cousins but has webbed wings and a rather porcine head. It can fly, though relies heavily on gliding, and is an exceptional hunter in the water. It is a rather lethargic creature, however, when not roused. It’s primary goals are food, warmth and mates.


Howlers: A swift flying bird with bright plumage, howlers are given their name due to the vocalizations they typically make when hunting. Canine maws make them dangerous, but their prey is typically limited to rabbits, foxes and other smaller animals.

Primary Menagerie

Here there be monsters…

Ghast.jpg Ghast: The forests of Weirmonken have more than their share of terrors. However, to the peoples of the northwest, ghasts must top any list of fears. They have nearly human intelligence, can devote days to tormenting their prey and they enjoy playing with their prey.

Stalker.jpg Stalker: Swift, deadly and cunning. Stalkers hunt in packs and have a pride type social structure. They are inquisitive in nature, but such curiosity usually lasts only as long as it takes to decide whether to kill swiftly or have its prey thrashing while eaten.


Yoncick: These animals are not the most intelligent but they make up for this in sheer aggression. Extremely territorial in nature, they will attack anything they see as a potential threat. Weir, bears, other yoncicks….
