A pipefox is a foot-long, furry, magical snake with the head of a fox. Often found either climbing in trees or snaking around pipes, these curious and stealthy creatures prefer to skulk about to observe and learn. Neither malicious nor particularly beneficial, pipefoxes love to gather knowledge and sometimes disseminate what they’ve acquired to those they find worthy.
There is no way your players will be able to resist the cuteness that is the pipefox. That is all for this week, next week I think we will take a look at a creature that will be very unhappy about all this sweetness.
