The origins of the steermink go all the way back to the very discovery of New Franken, when the first explorers actually
met one of the beasts face to face, scared they began to run, but they were stopped by their Native American guide who taught
them about the beast and how to gain it's trust. Nobody knows how the SteerMink came into existence. Most guess that thousands
of years ago a wild steer mated with a mink, the creature was the size of a steer but looked like a mink with horns. The beast
also has the power to shoot fire from it's mouth like a dragon. The SteerMink recieved this ability from the early Native
Americans who lived in harmony with the beast, when settlers began to take over their land, they put a spell on the steermink
to allow them to shoot fire and take out the white man. But with guns men still overpowered the SteerMink, and it learned
to fear the white man, except those true New Frankeners that decent from the original Native friendly explorers.
|A scale to demonstrate the size of the SteerMink
The SteerMink is a nocturnal creature that lives in the woods of New Franken, and only comes out to feed at night.
It is an omnivore, meaning it eats both meats and greens. Since settlers have moved into the area the SteerMink have had a
constant supply of people and crops to feed on so it has grown in size, and an adult can weigh up to 2500 lbs. and reach lengths
of 20 feet. The SteerMink population in New Franken is estimated at a possible 10 steermink in the area, all that is left
of a population that thousands of years ago exceeded 500. And they roamed in packs all over North America. In the winter the
SteerMink does not hibernate, but in fact becomes more active in searching for food, and is at that time most dangerous. In
New Franken it is not safe to roam too long at night alone without some sort of weapon.
The New Franken Secret Society
A secret society has been formed in New Franken, no one knows when the society began. Though it's estimated
that the orginization goes back over 50 years. We do know that the society consists of many prominent New Frankeners, many
of them are veterans of the United States Armed Services. These men's virtues are tested slowly over years until
they become full members of the society. We are fairly certain they meet once a week and consist of 8-12 members. There they
discuss New Franken politics and set plans into action to fight the pressures of the Green Bay Buracracy and it's imposing
laws. Fight on you members of this brave society.
