The Inchok of Nafud (Dagudashaag 1418) are a semi-intelligent species who live in complex, communal burrows.

Physiology and ecology[edit]

The Inchok are deaf - they sense each other (and more importantly their prey) through vibrations set up my movements in the sand. Basic communications between the Inchok is achieved through ‘drumming’ signals onto compact sand using a spade-like tail; vibrations are picked up by special sensitive pads found on the underside of the limbs.

Diet and trophics[edit]

They extract oxygen and water directly from the sand. The sand is taken into a special gut and chemically broken down to release the O2 and the water which are reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Water is then reabsorbed by kidney-like structures. These organs are so efficient that virtually no water is lost during normal metabolism.


This race is primarily located in the following areas:
