Below is a collection of Chinese mythical life forms that are rather harmless. The author wishes to re-emphasise that that this is basically a translation and compiling exercise, not a creative one.

Each life from entry below would contain the following sections:

Physical Description

Special Properties: traits from which interactions with PCs could arise (optional depending on whether the original source details them or not)

Lore: Mythical origins/how they are incorporated into Chinese culture (optional depending on whether the original source details them or not)

Translation Quirks (optional): alternative ways of translating/interpreting particular sections and other things I want to provide notes about including particular Chinese terms, other bits about Chinese culture and potential translation inaccuracies (feel free to skip this section if uninterested).

Flora

Shadow Wood

Physical Description:

A tree distinguishable because in the day-time, each of its leaves has one hundred of the Chinese character that means 'shadow' on it while at night its flowers will shine like stars. This tree will only bear fruit every 10 000 years. Its fruits are as large as a melon, with a green skin and black seeds.

Special Properties:

Consuming the fruit of this tree will cause the body to become lighter (could also be interpreted as a bonus to speed and jumping abilities)

Lore:

Reputedly one of the fauna or flora that have taken on sentience (or at least become different in some way) from being ancient and/or having absorbed (or possibly developed on their own) a certain amount of 'essence' of nature. In Chinese, such life forms are referred to as 'Yao Jing' where Yao refers to anything and everything out of the common and Jing can be translated to 'essence'.

Translation Quirk:

At first, I thought each leave of the Shadow Wood has 100 shadows rather than having 100 Chinese characters of the word 'shadow' on it. In Chinese, usually a word is composed of at least 2 characters. For the term 'shadow', it is far more common for it to be represented by 2 Chinese characters, the first already meaning 'shadow' on its own and the second one meaning 'son' on its own but when used in combination with other characters is really more of a 'space filler'. In addition, the character that means 'son' and the character that means 'word' in Chinese are quite similar in form.
