Why do magical items recharge at dawn?

Each dawn, the light of the sun crashes over the landscape like a tidal wave, burning away the lingering remnants of darkness from the antisun. As this darkness evaporates, it leaves behind trace particles of magic that go spiraling through the air in an invisible aurora.

If you had the eyes of a wizard, dawn wouldn't just appear honey-yellow. You would see the atmosphere around you light up in a swirling cloud of indescribable colors.

Eventually, even the magical traces of darkness are scrubbed away by the sun.

Several animal lists taken from Wikipedia,cleaned up, and numbered.

While compiling the big ol' list of critters in my previous post, I came across several Wikipedia pages which contained lists of animals with their common names. These lists are incomplete and have some duplicates, but they are nice pieces of work nonetheless. I've copied them here, cleaned them up, tried to remove duplicates, and transmogrified them into a form suitable for random generation.
