Personally I would settle for the MGF-variant. Adventurers encountering,
say, the hungry trollkin-horde from Troll Realms while trying to protect a
huge fragile duck-egg a sounds like a lot of fun. As for teeth I imagine
ducks without teeth would have trouble consuming many kinds of food. This
could cause complications for the duck in question, which can lead to
entertaining role-playing situations. Didn't RQ-Adventures have a duck
issue, by the way?
