Jaan (D20 Modern Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



The Jaan(jawn)are somewhat of a sneaky, impulsive race with a sense for adventure. Many Jaan exhibit a childlike nature even in old age. They have no word for shame or modesty so many times a conversation with the Jaan can lead to violent outbreaks between both parties. When shown something new a Jaan will typically give great concetration and intrest in it until he gets bored. Jaan are also a bit attention deficite. This is apparent when viewing some of their building. Most are unfinished or halfway done. Roads tend to end in dirt paths and the only reason their ships work is that they do not get bored building ships.

Physical Description[edit]

Jaan are a humanoid-feline race. They stand anywhere between 5 and 7 feet tall. They have fur that ranges in color between green and yellow, and can have any variety of markings. Their eyes are usually blue, yellow, or deep purple. They have tails and walk on the balls of their feet as earth cats do but upright instead.


Jaan are somewhat compulsive and like to meet new races. However they are easily offended and hold grudges even through several generations. The Jaan had a meeting with the Kantarians at a neautral planet. Suffisive to say it didn't go well. This led to the Jaan War. Which was ended by Mr. Byrd in E.Y. 1998.


Jaan are varied in their alignment but most are neutral.


The Jaan homeworld, Jaan-Ay, is a world similar to Earth but the sky, oceans, and even some sandy deserts are green in color. The planet is covered by jungle like forests that grow very quickly. The capital has to be maintained just to keep the vines from overgrowing. There is only one moon, Naaj-Ay.


The main religion on Jaan-Ay is Greenstianity. They worship one god, Green. They believe that Green created the universe and the Jaan. Their main holiday is Green Day.


Jaan speak Jaan. Ceartain Jaan secret societies speak an ancient form of Jaan sometimes called Erin.


Jaan get their names at birth but many change it at adulthood.
