Editor's Note: Sorry but there aren't many pictures out there that accurately show what this race looks like.


Equans are friendly and affectionate and above all else, loyal. However they are also easily startled and are usually stereotyped as paranoid or anxious.

Sworn Enemies[edit]

Interactions With Magic[edit]

For all their strength and reputation, Equans have terrible difficulty handling any arcane magic as they are touched by Obad-Hai with innate primal power. The affect of which is that Equans cannot use arcane magic whatsoever, on the other hand they are also immune to arcane magic.

  • Cannot use magic at all. Any spell attempted by an Equan instantaneously fails.
  • Immune to spells and spell like abilities.
  • Use Magic Device checks instantly fail.
  • Potions have no effect.

If a spell is cast upon an equan, then it immediately vanishes and is nullified, regardless of what kind of spell or spell like ability it is. A healing spell could be cast on an equan and it would be undone just like any other spell.

Fighting on Hard Surfaces[edit]

Equans have hooves for feet and are less maneuverable on hard surfaces. Therefore they are flat-footed when fighting on surfaces such as stone or harder. They also take a -3 to reflex saves and can only move 20 feet at maximum.



Plains and grassy flat-lands.




They are given a birth name by their mothers and fathers. When they reach 10 years of age, they must earn their life names through tasks that represent their talents. When they die, they are given death names that reflect their life in retrospect.
