Links working fine for me as well. Perhaps try a different browser?

It works for me. Do other Bitly links work for you? If you're using a blocker program, it might be preventing it from operating.

Weird, working now. Guessing something with my ISP.

Water Lion is an unusual and mysterious deity who wanders the planes for reasons unknown, although there are many theories about his purpose. He has only a small and dispersed following among the aquatic races, mostly loners and hunters.

Hmmm, I like this guy. Where is he from? Is he maybe someone I forgot from Monster Mythology or somewhere else entirely?

He's from Monster Mythology, p.95. He doesn't get much mention anywhere else, though.

That settles it then, I may have to use him with my cat folk as a sea god.

Quorlinn the Filcher: http://bit.ly/2iTi41K

The patron of the kenku is one of the more interesting deities in the AD&D game, because hes not terribly comfortable having the responsibilities of godhood that have been thrust upon him. This isnt exactly a rare situation, however; what makes Quorlinn different is that he was never a mortal like most of those who share those feelings. It creates a much more interesting deity, as does the merging of eastern and western elements that kenku represent.

Very nice.

No love for the Dire Corbies?

There was also a Horde (Tuigan) specific variant. 'Manni' I think.

Kenku and Tengu (in AD&D at least) have arms and wings, whereas Manni only have wings (with hands on them). I don't see them as particularly closely related. I would have Manni be closely related to Ravenloft's Ravenkin (MC10), who are very similar in appearance. They'd also be more closely related to Aarakocra than Kenku.

I don't really know much about Dire Corbies, partly because they never got their own individual MC sheet with artwork. They don't (and didn't) have arms and wings, though, so I would not have them closely related to the kenku.

I haven't paid that much attention to the lore on the creator races, but IMO, I would say kenku are not descended from the avian creator race, and instead originate in the east, either as the forebearers of the tengu or descended from them.
