The Phantom Argak

Walking through the blizzard I see, off in the distance, a snow covered rock. as I get closer it begins to move. I become uneasy but feel like its just my hunger and lack of sleep messing with my head. I get close enough to almost touch it, and suddenly, massive creature bolts up, letting out a startled cry as he glares at me with his red eyes. I'd never seen such an animal so followed him. He was too fast and rounded the corner around a rock. He was gone. Disappeared in thin air. Then I noticed he didn't make a single track and snow seemed to just flow through his massive body. I found shelter in a cave and for the first time in a week, I slept.


The phantom argak is a legend about a white argak. Supposedly, in the western parts of the Khulany Range, a white argak lives. He is whites as the snow and lives alone without a herd. Some say they've saw him and he is twice the size of a normal argak but can disappear behind a rock or tree. They also say his eyes are red like fire and his hooves don't leave a single track.
