Zlozz Kirpanksi’s Journal – Day 10

Life @ 20 Yorts per Yort.

By Zlozz Kirpanski

Slog schooners move SLOW. The average Oithling moving at a pace of 6 yorts per yort (squares per round or 30’ per 6 seconds) will when calculated up move 3.4 yorts per yort (miles per hour), which means if they are dedicated to moving and not hunting or doing other activities could cover 34 yorts in a 10 yort day (again miles and hours).

The first benefit I wish to look into is protection. Much like other examples on Oith, the ability to be large is a great advantage on its own. The increased size can be extrapolated into thicker skin on the average enrmo slog. Doing some surreptitious tests, wounds at depths that would cripple a normal slog does not even break through the outer layers of the enromo slog. Normal predators on Oith have had many yorts to realize that there is no point to do anything but run from these giant slogs, lest they be inadvertently crushed. This protects the passengers on a slog schooner from any natural threat that could be
