The Healer by andronykus The Healer by andronykus
EDIT: Color!!! Thanks to David Marquez for his scanning services.

Another entry for Seventh Sanctum's Fantasy Folk contest. I only have the Black and White version for now, due to my lack of a color scanner. I'll replace it asap, but I wanted to put this up. If that conflicts with site rules, please don't accept this until the color version is up.

The description this time:

"The race of otter-people. The only kind of magic they can do is fungus magic. They worship a matriarchial pantheon of gods and goddesses. They believe the powers that be are intimately involved in their lives. They are integrated into another culture, but have no land of their own. Their history is unknown even to them."

In time immemorial this race lost their watery kingdom above and was banished to the underground world of the funguloids. Still in close contact with their gods they use their divine connection to fungus magic to provide healing to injured workers. For this service they are allowed to live amongst the funguloids. Here their most powerful goddess, Leelle the Virgin Hospitaler, lends her divine will to the fungus magic being wielded in her name.
