The Dumpling Bundle is a stitched snack sack stuffed with doughy dumplings that are filled with kofta-style beef shoulder and other blended meats. The dish was first developed by cattle herders in Medinat Alef’s hilly Katef region.
Eventually, the dumplings grew popular among elite foodies in Bavel’s Mattanah city. ‘Ivrit’s Ulpan Academy cafeteria also serves the dish to its hungry troops, making this meal a rare point of agreement between the two warring factions.
The Dumpling Bundle comes from the כפת shoresh family, which deals with dumplings, kofta, shoulders, stitches and blends.
The Idol Oak is a gnarled, withered husk of wood that demands worship and submission from the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement. This enemy most frequently dwells in the Ilan forest, but sprouts near the Ulpan when the Bavel Macrostructure tries to invade it.
While the creature is as dumb as a stump, its spiritual abilities come from the Kena’ani masks that surround it, as well as an old Edomi idol that dwells within and gives it life. The Idol Oak is frequently the subject of nature worship among the nations.
Like the Battering Ram and the Dumbkuchen, the Idol Oak is based on the אול shoresh root. This character takes inspiration from the root’s ties to trees, oaks, stupidity, wickedness and idolatry. Look forward to seeing this monster in the Milhamah RPG and video game!
