Last year I worked with Jon Hodgson and Kalin Kadiev of Chaosium on two RPG books in the Glorantha setting. They now appeared in the books The Smoking Ruin and The Pegasus Plateau. www.chaosium.com/the-smoking-r…

These are duck people, as they discover a dragon floating by on his makeshift boat. Apparently they're not the most neighbourly fellows and like making noise.

Many duck depictions in the setting featured white ducks, but to me the regular duck kind is this one. In nature, they're rather lovely. There, they are apparently... acquired tastes, but they are traders so it can't be that bad. Maybe like jawas?
Thanks!

Poor guy. Oh, well, could be worse: They could be geese.

That would be worse. When I was very little there were geese down on the pond, they were really frightening for us kids, but I did love their sounds.
Thanks!

What is that liquid? Twice as heavy as water?

Just a really great boatsman. Boatdragon. The Glorantha world is flat, I dunno what else is weird there ;)

I guess if youre skilled enough, it does not matter how good your boat is ;)

They live for very long, I think. Maybe he's been at log-boating longer than you and I have lived combined!

And I was getting the feeling that they were pointing him the right way... Bastards, cannot be trusted.

No, more like "there he is, get him, someone do something, Ernie, get the gun, don't let him get away, omg omg omg". Which is like I remember geese.
