It closes its beak and swallows hard.

  • Ask shaderald for <direction>
A <descriptive> shaderald shambles northeast, off to herald your arrival there.

Description

The shaderald drifts in and out of your field of vision like smoke, as if it were not wholly substantial. Though difficult to focus on, what you can see of the shaderald is bulky and four-legged, with a massive hooked beak that it angles awkwardly forward. Shadowy feathers flicker from its form now and again, dissipating as they fall away while others ruffle up to take their place.

Possible Variants

  • a hideous shaderald
  • an opaque shaderald
  • a shadowy shaderald
