This illustration is from my Kickstarter project to create drawings of all of the friendly nonhumans and land animals from Professor M.A.R. Barker's wonderful Tékumel (aka Empire of the Petal Throne) role-playing world setting.

"These little creatures have six legs, like so many of Tekumel's fauna, and they also have a pair of small hands just beneath their blunt, anthropoidal snouts. They never attack humans and always flee if approached. They do try to snatch bright objects at random from passing travelers, however, running off and giggling in a very human fashion. The victim victim is chosen randomly from those nearest the Kuruku. There is a small chance that the item will be thrown down as the little beast runs away; otherwise it is lost forever - unless the Kuruku can be cornered, a difficult task in open forest."


Support my Kickstarter project to re-create color paintings from the covers of classic AD&D adventures A1 (Slave Pits of the Undercity), A3 (Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords), and C2 (The Ghost Tower of Inverness) - and get signed prints of these re-created paintings!…
