All the talk today about ducks over at Grognardia has me thinking about RuneQuest.


This is a race cursed by the gods during the Great Darkness for not joining them versus the forces of Chaos. It is unknown whether they were originally human and became feathered and web-footed, or originally ducks cursed with flightlessness and intelligence. They reside mostly in Duckpoint (in Sartar) and must, due to their small strength, use weapons such as short swords, slings, etc.

For arcane reasons they are allowed to join certain Death Rune cults...

They come in a variety of different colored feathers and are excellent swimmers, though they cannot fly, having arms instead of wings. Most armor is too heavy for them.
