Quoth the Nadubi:

“Oi, best be careful walking all alone out here in the afterdark; mighty fierce night monsters are about.”

Kith Excerpt:

While there are a good handful of Australian Spirit Beings worthy of being called monsters and the like, with all sorts of blood-drinking, flesh-eating bogie-beasts, only one of them is worthy of being called Ngayurnangalku (Thallain). The Nocturnal Nadubi are an old Tribe of spiky-fleshed cannibalistic murderers that have plagued the backroads since the beginning. Their cannibalistic nature isn’t due to some Dreamtime decreed mandate for survival, the Nadubi just enjoy killing and eating.

Capable of casting a Kwaba (Glamour) even over their usual Yuuri Mien (Mortal Mien), their true form is hidden behind a tall-handsome stranger, and many of them can even pass for the ubiquitous Eshu Kith. When their true form is revealed, however, there is no hiding their genuine monstrous nature. Of course, these twisted beasts enjoy the fear that such an appearance causes, but no Glamour is gained that way. Only with a successful gank of their bony protrusions allows them their much-needed Kwaba.

Prowling the back places of Australia, their numbers are fewer and fewer every night. Some get caught by others. Some hunt themselves, hoping to thin the competition. While a good majority of them are male, the few females seem to do better. Perhaps their mortal victims are less wary of the smiling Sheila on the dark road. Whatever the case, those of the Tribe that do survive are the monsters clever enough to cause some concern, and the wise Spirit Beings of the other Tribes should keep an eye out for strangers.



“This is night, Diddykins. That’s what we call it when it goes all dark like this.”
