Gluttons (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Out of all the activities a Glutton engages in, eating is the primary passtime. A typical Glutton will eat over three times their body weight in a single day due to their insatiable eating addiction. Besides that, Gluttons also love drinking, listening to music, and occasionally engaging in tests of strength. Those of a more magical bent will often pore through tomes of necromancy, eager to pursue their race's chosen form of magic.
Gluttons are the same general height as dwarves, but they often weigh well over 200 pounds due to their overeating. Despite this, they have a hyperdeveloped muscular system that is evident to any onlooker. Unlike their dwarven kin, Gluttons have bone-white skin and various light shades of hair, and their eyes on always warmly-colored. The most typical Glutton eye color is orange. They enjoy roomy clothes that can at least partially hide their swollen bellies, often preferring fancy garments most races would save for the nobility.
Gluttons suffer the distaste of nearly all other races. Humans and elves see them as overindulgent louts due to their overeating, while gnomes and halfings dislike their more vulgar sense of humor. Dwarves see them as mockeries of the dwarven people, both due to their lack of restraint and their heritage as magically-altered dwarves. Among the more savage races, their strength and necromantic powers earn them not only tolerance but respect.
The Gluttons' alignment is mostly based on their government, which is rife with corruption. As a result Gluttons have learned to live the good life at the expense of those weaker than them and so adopt a lawful evil alignment. The rare Glutton who defies the major powers of their race often flees and takes on a good alignment.
Gluttons prefer places where the sun's rays don't damage their naturally pale skin, and so often reside in cold mountains or underground. They require large supplies of food, often taking it from either the surrounding landscape or weaker communities near them.
No singular deity holds much sway over the Glutton race. Every deity can be found among these people, so long as their teachings do not require deprivation of one's food, drink and humor.
Gluttons speak Dwarven, albeit with a thick accent, and most learn at least one other language.
First names among the Gluttons are similar to those of dwarves, while clan names are usually related to eating.
