Deep in the mountains, scratching and muttering can be heard in their caverns. Through narrow passageways and vicious traps, the kobolds make their living. These bipedal reptilians have made their society on the desire to be safe and secure, where they can pray for the day that their dragon lords come for their chosen people.
Found in the plateaus of mountainous regions, the yak-folk are an elusive race with a tendency towards rich cultural histories and colorful civilizations. Standing at seven to eight feet tall, the yak-folk are easily recognized by their long fur coats, cloven hooves, and the horns on the males.
The succubi are what is known as a symbiont race; their culture and lifestyles are primarily dependent on those of other races. In the case of succubi (also called incubi- we’ll address this later), they are creatures that are dependent on humans and humanoid races for their survival.
From overseas, the neogi came with their whips and chains and hearts of pitch. Their numbers were low but their desire was great, and through determination and cunning they have made a foothold in the mortal plane. Whilst their control of land is minimal, their influence on other cultures is great, and they are well known as ruthless slavers.
The tlincalli are a little understood race, due to their lack of written records of their past. Their nomadic lifestyle in an extreme environment has resulted in them not taking much time to delve into their own pasts, instead focusing on the present. They rarely dwell on the past for long; the very ideas of grudges and debts are quite foreign to them, as it based on things that have been and gone, not what is or will be.
The aarakocra way of life is centered around their worship of the sky and respect for the mountains. In their mind, ascension is the greatest honor that can be granted to any being, with the gods above the sky and the lowest wretches of the world living deep underground. Aarakocra make their homes in mountain ranges, often in crevices and cliff faces that provide easy access to take off points.
Found in swamps, marshlands, and mangrove forests, Bullywugs live where the ground is damp and the air is humid. They are beastfolk- humanoid races with strong animalistic traits- and require moisture to survive. Their dependence on wet environments has shaped much of their technology and lifestyles, as well as how they are perceived by other races.
I’m (hopefully) going to be starting a project in 2017 called Over The Dungeon Wall (OTDW). This project is going to be a culture and race development spree, based on taking lesser developed races from the Dungeons and Dragons series and giving them some flesh and blood.
