Notes GB pg 34-35, 20 Anaxial's Annex. The orveltor are the largest and most common of the western slorifings. They are vaguely humanoid in shape, but possess three flexible, flattened arms, with the third sprouting from the abdomen roughly where a human navel would be. They have two legs, which are gnarled, twisted and covered in bark. Their stocky bodies are covered in green fuzz, although their flattened and wrinkled head is grey and quite hairless. Young orveltor live in water filled burrows, and do not surface and begin to breathe air until they reach adulthood. Thus, unlike most other slorifings, the orveltor are not normally accompanied by their young. Orveltor are relatively peaceful, so long as they do not perceive the vegetation and wildlife of their swamps being threatened. They rarely deal with humans however, for each race finds the other alien (not to mention ugly) and difficult to understand. They often have limnades as allies, and prefer to learn healing and plant related magics to those associated with combat, although they will not ignore the latter entirely. In combat, orveltor will first seek to intimidate enemies into leaving, through superior numbers or demonstration of magic. If this fails, one or two will hang back and use their magic to support their fellows, so that swamp weeds entangle their foes, and that the fighters may be augmented as necessary. The remainder will charge forward, and swim beneath the water to catch the intruders by surprise if possible. Orveltor usually fight with a sharp bamboo stilletto in each hand; they stab with two and use the third, stouter, stilletto to parry their opponent's blows.
