A Whole Magical Pig – a treasure for fantasy

Loot-a-Day, Day 26: Precicous animals & plants

Whole Magical Pig
This pig possesses magical abilities.

You can determine the exact type of magical pig by rolling a d4:

  1. Goldsniffler: A goldsniffler will unerringly sniff out buried treasure. However, the pig needs to be immediately drawn off its find with a few coins or else it will gobble down the buried gold – and contrary to its asinine cousins of similar calling, the treasure, once eaten, will not reappear out of the pigs other side.
  2. Bristle Charger: The charge of such a riding boar is unstoppable as the boar is immune to attacks from the front while charging. Swords and arrows break and crumple like dry sticks on the ironlike bristles raised over his massive lowered head.
  3. Fortune Pig: The fortune pig brings good luck. This takes the form of fortunate coincidences and events befalling its owner in the pig’s presence. However, it has no effect on the owner’s luck in excersising his own abilities.
  4. Hearty Sow: Immediately upon entering a body of water it enters, be it a pond, bath tub, or a small section of river, The hearty sow will transform it into a pool of thick mud. Bathing in this muck is an extremely comfortable experience and the pig turns out to be polite and amicable company. The mud is not only refreshing and relaxing but also turns out to heal wounds and ailments.

Supposedly, there are other types of magical pig as well, such as the lightning pig, which runs so fast that terrible electrical discharges arc along the furrow it leaves in its wake, or the prophetic oracle pig.

Why Fantasy?
Because we still couldn’t decide on an individual game.

Loot-a-Day is a month-long German blogging challenge by fellow German blogger Greifenklaue, who was inspired by ArtifactaDay which we ran last August as a counterpoint to RPGaDay in Germany. We followed up on this with two more marathons of daily content about artificial creatures and science-gone-too-far, respectively, and now Greifenklaue seeks to spread the format.


  1. Du hast das Wahrsageferkel vergessen. Beim Lesen Deines Eintrags dachte ich an das Schwein von Tarantel und der Zauberkessel, das, wenn es aus einem Napf TRANK,die Zukunft zeigte. Während doch was für Pentragon, spielt auf irische Mythen an.


    1. Das Orakelschwein steht doch ganz Ende? (Und ja, natürlich ist das eine Anspielung auf die Chroniken von Prydain.)
