Yavmir Bestiary: Kreutzet

The Yavmir Bestiary is an ongoing project, where Michael and Radiostorm brainstorm ideas for a slavic-themed fantasy setting. More information can be found at the WoR Wiki.


Kreutzets are immense eagles that were once bound and used as mounts during the Radiant Age. Impressive wingspans, beautiful markings, and unshakeable morales made these beasts popular symbols for warriors and adventurers across the nine great cities of man.

Bred for size, endurance, and strength, these avian creatures could carry riders immense distances without tiring. Kreutzets were a common sight in the skies throughout the Golden Empire, and later on the battlefield during the civil wars that followed the smiting of Jarilostrad.

Over time Kreutzet numbers dwindled, and currently very few still live in captivity. Wild populations of these beasts are sometimes spotted on the fringes of Yavmir, with large flocks rumoured to exist in both Pomekh and Isk. Although once well trained animal companions, most Kreutzet encountered in The Mortal Age are feral and dangerous hunters; easily capable of rending an unwary traveler in twain.
