Full description:

Stomper

This sluggish creature spends its days buried in a pile of leaves. It seems engrossed in matters known only to itself. When asked for help, the Stomper will awake from its slumber and slowly look around. A broad smile will cover its face and it will ask softly: “Yeees? Can I be of any help?” Despite its deceptive meagre posture, the Stomper is a creature of amazing strength. Its massive hands can crush rocks. At night the Stomper becomes more active, judging from the stomping of its fast, flat feet all-around in the darkness.
