Quagmire (Living Quicksand)

Dragon Magazine #127 had once creature in it that immediate jumped out at me as belonging on Eska. The quagmire was originally created by Scott Bennie, and I built my conversion upon James Introcaso's young gaping maw , with a few changes. SPEEDPAINT - Swamp by   tgw-Raptor Scattered among the coastal swamps and marshlands of Eska, a curious ooze has developed, the quagmire, or living quicksand. They are quite a natural hazard to those who are unaware of their presence. Saurians on Eska have developed a bit of a relationship with quagmires, and use them as defensive hazards around their sviks. Once a quagmire has been identified, they mark the area around it, often with discreet marks on surrounding trees and rocks.
