Haadja and Lucio :: Pair of Mumaaqu 

Levels: 1 & 2 (age = level) 
Strength: level x 2 + 2O 
Mvm: level +10 
Dex: level +5 up to 30 
Will: level +10, -5 to handler if raised correctly from young, -3 if desert breed. 
MR: 100% 
Heat Resistance: (desert and tropics breeds) 60% 
Trample: level x 10 + Strength
Charge: Tusks + Strength 
Tusks: level x 5 
Trunk: +1 damage per level, +50% strength, able to toss up to 100 pounds per level with trunk up to 1 d6 feet per 5 levels.  
Lifespan of up to 120 years. 

Information: Mumaaq are very large (mastodon-like but larger) animals with one pair of massive tusks and a secondary smaller pair of curling, or in case of the desert breed, curved, corkscrewing tusks.  They are very aggressive if confronted and are very likely to attack in force, often forming circles or taking a back to back stance, with young at the center.  They dwell in grasslands, planes, tundras, and this desert breed is called a Mumaaqu.  

The desert Mumaaqu are the most agreesive of the mumaaq breeds. They have a thin soft pelt like mole-skin covering their thick hides which matts easily with the sand, dirt and mud which keeps them cool and protects their skin from the sun. They are dun in colour  with brown heads, amber manes, and breasts, and have dark brown striping on their sides and legs. Their smaller tusks curve inside the larger tusks and are handsomely corkscrewed, while the outter tusks are very long and heavy. Shaamae shamans and Ariad mages alike value the smaller spiraling tusks as staffs when they can find straight ones, which they intriquitely carve; and where the Shaamae only ever take the tusks off of dead animals which died of natural causes, the Ariad elves ritualistically hunt animals which lack the curve in the spiral tusks, which is rare. The Ariad also protect the herds in their territories. Some Ariad mages will occasionally buy such rare tusks off of traders for a hefty price, which invites poaching of these animals, much as poachers have perfected methods of straightening the tusks with pressure steam and presses. 

All mumaaq have soft valuable fur with thick hides beneath. A muumaq blanket can sell for roughly eleven hundred gold marks, which equals ten-thousand silver dollars. The value of their fur also invites poaching of these amazing animals. Mumaaq feed on brush, leaves, fruit, nuts (thin shelled), grains, and grasses.  These animals originated in Mhas Andoreth where the largest herds still roam but can be found in Morendor as well which was once part of the same land mass as Andorath.
