Quoth the Kurreah:

“Alligators? Dragons? Dinosaurs? Yes, pretty much. But also no. It’s complicated. However, is that really what you’ll be thinking about when you’re being eaten?”

Kith Excerpt:

Way out in the secluded rivers, forgotten waterholes, and the deep underground springs across the Land, a mighty draconic force holds the mortal populace in check with their insatiable hunger… as least that is what they would tell you. The Kurreah are an old dragonesque Spirit Being Family that patrols Australia’s waters. At one time they were thought to inhabit certain Lagoons in New South Wales, but that is just because the fat white fellas got lazy, the Kurreah got hungry, and the stories spread. Truth tell if there is water, there is a Kurreah what’s been in it.

Not quite the monstrous beast of legend, the Kurreah are made out to be a lot worse than they actually are. They, for the most part, however, still enjoy their spooky status and ill reputation. It keeps most of the good and respectful folk at a safe distance, while inviting the brazen and irreverent. And of course, the truth is that they are more than capable of eating a bloke or two when the fancy hits.

There is one truth about them that the stories get right. They are extremely territorial and guard their protected waterways with more zeal than is healthy. When two Kurreah’s cross paths in the same waterways, there is always formal meet and greets with stunning displays of etiquette and propriety. The wise visitor to the water should show the same humility and decorum. To do otherwise might mean a hot lunch for the Kurreah.



“Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time? That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.”
― Hermann Hesse, “Siddhartha”

“You can’t trust water: Even a straight stick turns crooked in it.”
― W.C. Fields
