Bongor's Guide to
Discordian Skins
by Bongor

Hi! I just spent a lot of
time working with the skins
of animals from this
Discord place and I wanted
to share what I've found!

I found three types that
are useful for making
armor. There are those
slimy things called
Murkgliders, those things
with the tentacles called
Feran and the giant beasts
called Bazu. I'm more of
an expert on lighter
materials, but I think I
can talk about all three of
these things.

Generally I grade these



things in one of four ways.
The really bad ones I've
been calling ruined. If
they have fewer holes and
are less likely to fall
apart, I call them damaged.
Relatively undamaged skins
I just call by their names,
like Feran skin or
whatever. If I get lucky
and find one that's really
nice I'll call that
pristine.

Making armor from the
Mukglider and Feran skins
is pretty straightforward.
You need to match the
pattern to the skin (you
don't want to waste a
pristine skin on a belt
when a ruined one will do),
then add an appropriate
amount of the creature's



blood (this helps the
material remain supple).
You'll need more blood for
the better skins.

Now for the Bazu skin,
well, that stuff is hard!
You'll have to get a smith
to work on that stuff in
his forge. Your sewing
needle isn't going to pass
through it. The same
principles apply, though.
You'll still need enough
blood from the Bazu to keep
the skin from burning in
the forge.

I know, it sounds gruesome,
but the results are worth
it!

There's one other thing
that I just have to tell



you! If you can find the
right ingredient, you can
infuse these armors with
power!

Find the flame from a
Pyrilen and put it into the
forge with your finished
Bazu armor and you'll find
that it gains a lot of
strength. You may need
more flames for the better
pieces.

The same is true if you add
the right amount of ice
from a Gelidran to your
Feran armor pieces (and
this you can do in your
sewing kit), you'll get
great results. And if you
want to strengthen the
Murkglider armor you'll
need to use this stuff that



you can find inside
Discordlings. I'm not sure
how to describe it.

Anyway, I hope this helps!

Oh! I just heard something
interesting. It seems that
those Dragon guys also use
the skins of some of these
beasts to make things. You
might be able to make your
armor from that as well!

One more thing! I've heard
that someone is making
these cute little charms
that go with our armor!
Isn't that nice! I hear
they make them using some
of the same items that go
into the armor and that
there is some sort of
resonance that happens when



you have a lot of armor on.
I don't understand it all,
but it's nice of them to
make such a nice accessory!

Hi! I just spent a lot of time working with the skins of animals from this Discord place and I wanted to share what I’ve found!

I found three types that are useful for making armor. There are those slimy things called Murkgliders, those things with the tentacles called Feran and the giant beasts called Bazu. I’m more of an expert on lighter materials, but I think I can talk about all three of these things.

Generally I grade these things in one of four ways. The really bad ones I’ve been calling ruined. If they have fewer holes and are less likely to fall apart, I call them damaged. Relatively undamaged skins I just call by their names, like Feran skin or whatever. If I get lucky and find one that’s really nice, I’ll call that pristine.
