About Vampig Eggs

While most eggs are fed by the villagers of Ark City, these eggs can mostly be ignored. The eggs feed off of the love and adoration of simple glances, a wink, or just grazing their hands along the bristled spine of the egg. The design on the egg almost seems as if bits of the leathery skin is pushing through, trying to out-shine the other eggs in the caves of moss.

About the Vampig Creature

Piggrunts

The females are born more aggressive than the males, but both genders have small spikes that protrude from their back. These piglets are let loose into fields with sheep, where they first slip their tiny fangs into the ankles of the sleepy Coaraches. The more docile sheep are sheared of small clumps of wool, which the piggrunts hoard until they have enough to make clothing.

2nd Stage Vampigs

Once Piggrunts reach their fourth year, their body bursts in one painful but short growth-spurt in the form of wings. With the ability to fly, the males often use Coarach as protection from their female counterpart's challenge battles. To remain flying, the Vampigs must keep drinking blood to maintain their energy. Once in the air, the Fangsage drops the dead creature onto the head of their chosen female. The female Vampig either feasts on the offered meat, or buries their snouts in the dirt to ignore the offerings.

Adult Vampigs: Lord/Dame Sawsage

If the male or female reaches the age of ten, the Vampigs lose all of their vampiric body parts in a painless decay of shed tusks, fangs, and wings. After living most of their lives as carnivores, most Sawsages will grow into creatures who need only vegetables and grains to live on. If their blood-lust is too strong, the Vampig does not live past the age of twelve.

Older and wiser, they use saws, grindstones, and scythes to create the vegan dishes they now enjoy. While these Sawsages may look more dangerous with their tools, they are actually more at peace with themselves and others. Unless of course, a Teckarck or Pumkit happens to live nearby. For even creature that resemble vegetables, are not safe from being food for the Sawsages.
