The Squeaking Tribe

Maester Spinx an Oddling Marionette


Maester Spinx, the Doktor of Spektakular Tekniks, runs the Building of Methologikal Enterprize for the University, the series of workshops and foundries dedicated to Futuristiks which itself is a new form of New Tek magik being explored whose roots lie within the physikal and biologikal energies of the Land rather than the mystikal sources preferred by the elder races. He spent his younger years among the Desert-dwellers of the north, studying the phenomenal magnetik powers they plied in mining the sand for precious ores, and his skin still maintains traces of the leathery hide those people have evolved to defend themselves from the unrelenting harshness of the suns. The robes he wears similarly affect the kouture of the Great Desert; rich browns and burnt-orange weaves, a carapace of beaten leather across the shoulders, and an assortment of heavy glass beads around his neck. A brass Eye-of-Ikon is firmly fixed to the middle of his forehead, a final embellishment in recognition of the knowledge he gained.


The Land of Odd: A mystical experience in World-building!

Meet the Oddlings, a deliberate tribute to the humble Podlings developed by Brian Froud for “The Dark Crystal”. Normally a grassroots clan dressed generically in the umbers and ochres of the earth, our redeveloped Oddlings embrace a much wider palette of colour and textiles in their costuming and adopt a wide range of vibrant skin tones quite at odds with the earthy hues of their originators. Much of our collected jewellery and specialty off-cuts have found a home here, lending every one its own unique individuality. With just a few moments browsing, you will see the diversity of character distinct in each beautiful marionette and the world-building potential we are only beginning to cultivate.

Marionette in doll form is approximately 25cm in height or 60cm when strung.
