Mutants In The News — Death On The Wing Edition

Helping sheep-eating, vehicle-wrecking birds to better use tools...what could possibly go wrong?

Oh.  Right.

Biting The Wax Tadpole

Someone found my blog using the following search keywords:

"Break psychic link parasite"

I'm #4 on Google's list, right above...The Psychic Vampire Resource And Support Pages.

That's awesome.

The Okai are a race of intelligent quadrupeds that reach heights of 6' and weights of 400-500 pounds.  They have multiple ears, and striking striped patterning on their fur.

The Okai are the unwilling keepers of secrets.  They have no control over their Neural Telepathy, and are continually bombarded by the thoughts of beings outside their species.  This, when coupled with their delicate constitutions, puts the Okai at a severe disadvantage in the Mutant Future; consequently, they form secretive enclaves in the deepest, densest hearts of forests and jungles.  To fend off insanity, they dedicate their lives to meditation, the study of Ancient texts, and exploration of the Arts (both Ancient and Post-Apocalyptic).  How they procure such materials is a mystery.

When an a shaman or medic describes a disease as having "no known cure"...they've clearly never met an Okai.
