Creatures of Athas
A Kank is a horse-sized insect used as transportation and as a beast of burden, all over the planet of Athas. Naturally temperamental, young kanks are stolen from their hives to serve the rest of the humanoid races. People who feed kanks are accepted as a part of the “hive.” The kanks produce a tasty nectar sought out by all races. The nectar, when fermented, is an intoxicating drink (Gianca!) served in inns and alehouses in the city-states.
A mekillot is a very large lizard used to bear heavy burdens, such as slave wagons, military patrols or even entire trade caravans.
Flightless birds, often used as mounts.
