Project Description

Tamers of the Lomaguns

Evolved from humans, these “half-men” happily take charge of their own destiny and forge forward across the waves. Sea-faring by culture, agile and acrobatic by nature, the halflings tend to travel more than any other species albeit mainly at sea.

Halflings are essentially very short humans. They live a little bit longer than humans, perhaps directly because of their small size, or perhaps because of other changes. Although short, they are still proportioned like humans – to the point where if there is nothing to indicate scale, it can be hard to tell the difference between the two. They do have a slight slope to their skulls, which is not always obvious on older generations of halflings.

Halflings tend to have light to medium brown skin and dark brown to black hair which is often curly. Light blue eyes are common with various shades of brown as the second most. Red hair exists about as commonly as it does in humans.

They have the same need for sleep as humans but obviously, require less food (field rations for a halfling are about half of those for a normal-sized human) and water. Due to the fact that they seldom wear shoes, halflings have thick, leathery soles on their feet – this is a combination of genetics and environment. Halflings who are not from Pulikuk have more human-like feet, although they still have a tendency to prefer to go barefoot when possible. Many halflings are uncomfortable on the land in flat, open spaces, where there is nothing to climb.

Halflings are definitely not fragile and, in fact, can be tougher than humans. They are also incredibly agile. Halflings are god-gifted with leaping ability and most are also talented acrobats, especially those raised on ships or lomaguns. The combination of this means that halflings tend to fight in a fast style that makes use of the vertical environment when possible.

Because they spend so much time at sea, halflings tend to have developed immunity to motion sickness.

Hilada

There is a form of transmutation that humans can undergo turning them into dwarfs. The dwarves are just as varied as their human base, further blessed with long life. Due to decades of exposure to viiz, dwarfs mastered their personal viiz store and are able to use it for protection.

Hokhala

A tool of the extinct elves, hokhala are now sentient plant beings that seek to bring the world more stability and expand their verdant forests. Always exploring the leavings of their creators, the hokhala see themselves as the legacy of elves. Perhaps one day they will discover what truly took their creators away from the world.

Hurcines

The arrival of humans was an apocalypse for the nascent psionic web the orcs had weaved. Gone was the peaceful orcs but a new web, one communal, was formed which included the humans. From this community, the hurcine was born. Though cataclysm ended the great hurcine empire, the hurcine will never be alone.

Kulvix

Spontaneous sentience slowly came upon the psicrystals that are now the kulvix. Within a nearly controlled environment, they safely became a people. Deception necessitated a migration to the underdark at large. They have only recently discovered the surface world.

Kashaan

One of the many descendants of the primeval dragons, the kashaan work closely with the primeval dragon’s heirs, the true dragons. The sacred charge given to the kashaan people weighs heavily on​​ their minds, causing rifts in their ancient nation. Like all other things this too will pass, and the kashaan will still be standing.

Twil

Humans and dwarves researching the vlax became infected with something that harmed them. With vlax help, they were cured, but the genetic material of the vlax modified them. After ejection from Chilzangan, a cataclysm completed their transformation, bringing the twil fully into being.

Tycho

Escaping a threat from their home Plane of Shadow transformed the tycho. Where the hilada gain immortality in their transformation, the tycho lost it but regained an ability to make children. They seek to bring their kind to Theia, somehow a place safer than their original home.

Vahsh

A being born of a virakarasht uniting with another species, the vahsh are tied heavily to the seulaphlox that caused the virakarasht to come into being. They may not have a unified culture, but they struggle to survive like all of Barshiin’s residents.

Vlax

An ancient species on Theia, their halcyon days ended when​​ the world began developing massively virulent parasites. The vlax, instead of fighting them, incorporated the new life forms into themselves eons ago. After tragedy, they sealed themselves away only to recently reawaken.

2019-08-21T07:12:15-06:00

Virakarasht

Virakarasht share blood with the now extinct elves, but beyond acknowledging that fact, they care little for what the elves left behind. The virakarasht tribes wander in the deserts of the Breadth, creating their own place in Barshiin. Above all things, the virakarasht people respect the ability to survive; a common lesson in Barshiin.
