I believe that the trees become woses from some sort of magic or enchantment, maybe enchantment from elvish shydes or druids (since they are friends with elves) however it would take similar magic to necromancy because a soul is being inserted into the tree, that previously had none. And it take a lot of energy for a thing as large as a tree to walk and attack.
well, we could apply the same method as with drakes: have woses as trees possessed by something
The_Gnat wrote:Also what gender are woses. Technically they have no gender because they are plants, and they do not reproduce... but they look like old men. Maybe each tree looks like a different type of person when it becomes a wose. Maybe other types of trees can also become alive and they look like women? But that raises the question why do we not see any other types of tree become alive. Are there any other types of woses (besides the wose and the wose shaman) in wesnoth?
well, the answer to most of these questions is probably unknown
The_Gnat wrote:Moving on from woses, about gryphons. In order to train a beast as powerful and deadly as a gryphon you probably would have to trap it when it was younge and then teach it to let you ride it. Otherwise unless you could speak gryphon language it would think you were attacking it and fight you. But as the dwarves primary scout maybe some dwarves do speak gryponese? I have also seen the bear rider which is a reasonable alternative to a gryphon but not nearly as good, and the machines the dwarves have created, but i do not think that the dwarves would be that technologically advanced over the other races to build tanks and balloon fortresses.
small observation from mainline: even though gryphons speak somewhat like eagles, they can crudely mimic human/dwarf/ect. language and not just repeat what have been spoken.

If evolution played a part then all the human like species would be smarter, but saurians are as much like human as horses are.
well, i don't know an answer for this, sorry. Maybe someone else could reply and answer this?
