    Did great water snurg Urzak somehow overcome his shell being crushed, learning magic again in unbound and aberrant ways?
    Is it possible to learn such power?

      Crushed and exiled Urzak clung to his life by but a thread whether by blessing or curse it seemed that Urzak's internal organs were positioned much like a slurg. He lived to learn truth of the element of water and control it to keep himself moist and weild it against those who tore his form to pieces

      If there's one place you can go ham on weird sexuality shit it is snails anon as they are actual real deal hermaphrodites with two functioning sets of genitals. It may not work like that on humans but the anthropocentric everything must work on homo sapiens rules brainrot is even worse than trannoid brainrot.

        Addendum to this would be that presumably their attitudes on what gender to present themselves as and primarily choosing male would likely have to do with their relation with humans. Am not OP so I'm purely speculating, but if you're a hermaphrodite with the opportunity to choose to assume a particular gender identity, and your neighbors are a trad patriarchal human kingdom, you gain objective social benefits if you travel over there acting as a male. Over time this could easily evolve culturally into a more general preference simply because when dealing with non-hermaphrodite hominids its typically the winning play.

        Snails are actual hermaphrodites you precious moron.

        [...]

        moron, Snails/Snurls being natural hermaphrodites is 100% why human sexuality and gender theory shouldn't be applied to them.

        Reminder that some slugs tear off their own dicks and exchange them.
        Penguins are often necrophiliacs.
        And there also exists a force-feminizing crustacean that lost all crustacean features and looks like a parasitic blob.
        Nature is the original Magical Realm. All our human pathetic degen fetishes don't compare because the above is purposeful and efficient to a degree.

        Imagine watching a nature documentary or reading an article on animals and all you can think about is comparing the animals to obscure internet fetishes.

            Snurls will never be real people. They have no brain, they have no limbs, they have no bones. They are a overgrown snails twisted by psionics and magic into a crude mockery of nature’s perfection.

            All the “validation” they get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind their back humans mock them. Their parents are disgusting and to be ashamed of, a snurl's “friends” laugh at their ghoulish appearances behind closed doors.

            Humans are utterly repulsed by by. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed humans to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even snurls who “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a human. Their gelatinous skin is a dead giveaway. Even if they manage to get a drunk human home with them, they’ll turn tail and bolt the second they get a whiff of their diseased, infected shell wound.

            They will never be happy. They wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell themselves it’s going to be ok, but deep inside they feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush them under the unbearable weight.

            Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - they’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around their visceral humps, and plunge into the cold abyss. The zoologist will find them, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable stench and disgust. They’ll bury them with a headstone marked with their species, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a snurl is buried there. Their bodies will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of their legacy is decomposed slime that is unmistakably snurlian

            This is your their. This is what they chose. There is no turning back.

          The Sacculina parasite adheres to male crabs and rewires their hormones and minds to think they are female, they'll do shit like doing female mating dances and trying to take care of eggs they don't actually have, so that other male crabs try to fuck them and thus catch the parasite and spread it.

          There's a parasitic barnacle that sterilizes and sissifies male crabs making them look and act like they're girl crabs, up to the point of birthing "their" (the parasite's) eggs.

            Snurls are based off of burgundy snails however they can have variation in the shells and colours across populations

      I would have found it weird to not mention the fundamental frequency of a races voice it is something that would help people imagine them.

      i want to tear it's house off to see what's underneath.

      as in it's shell? most the shell of snurls is an organ and it houses the kidney heart and lungs etc. slurgs however are more similar to slugs.

      Can the Snurls enchant their own shells?
      If so what would be some common enchantments?
      An obvious one would be to increase the space on the inside similar to a bag of holding.

      there are snurl biomancers although they are rather rare as mentioned shells house snurls internal organs so they cant really make it much bigger internally. snurl biomancers usually magically reinforce their shell or enchant it to be resistant to certain ailments or elements.

    Very nice, Very cool, Very wholesome. I like it

    with the thing on them having only one child in their lives, is that one child per snail, or one child per pair of snails. Does that mean they're slowly dying out because they don't have enough children?

      Its per individual snurl their numbers stay fairly consistent they sometimes find it hard to recover as quickly as humans following disease and such though.
