Qól by Dave Maggi

The first illustration of the Qól that I have seen was by Professor Barker on the "War of Wizards" playing board - this was back in the mid-70's, the game being published by TSR.

The above picture is Dave Maggi's rendition of a Qól. Often when speaking with non-Tekumel fans I just call them "snakemen", "snake-people" or just "snakes" though, in the fluff, that is not what they are.

The Qól are the creations of the Temple of Ksarul, the results of gene-splicing and genetic engineering, though nowadays performed more through rituals than by scientific understanding. They are pale humanoids with a serpentine head and neck and tentacles in place of arms.
