Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Also something special should be added to this. These are amazingly bland after the ability score adjustments. The random starting ages in templated form need to be added (see the preload).

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

Sulkai forage for food around their homes, and grow limited amounts in gardens. They hold the goddess Ehlonna in high esteem, as their creation story involves her and Obad-Hai extensively. Each family usually keeps several books and scrolls in their home. Clans can either live with every family having their own dwelling, or several families of the same clan can share a large house or estate. Most Sulkai clans keep isolated from other races, but some trade with and live along side Gnomes and Halflings.

Physical Description[edit]

Sulkai are about the same hight and weight as a gnome. They have the appearance of an otter and gnome hybrid, leaning more towards the otter in face, feet, and tail, and more towards the gnome in torso, arms, and hands. Their fur comes in all shades of brown, white, gray, and black. Their eyes range in all the colors typical for humans.


When dealing with other races the general Sulkai believes that halflings and gnomes are best, due to their fun-loving nature. Sulkai are neutral with elves and dwarves. Sulkai tend to dislike Humans, Orcs, and Goblinoids due to a long history of enslavement and warfare with these races.


Sulkai tend towards chaotic, and can range from good to evil, although Chaotic Neutral is the most common alignment.


Marshes, swamps, coastal cliffs, riversides, and anywhere else there is both land and water.


Most Sulkai worship Ehlonna or Obad-Hai, but some worship Garl Glittergold, Venca, or Pelor.


Sulkai speak common and Sylvan, but they can also learn Aquatic, Elven, Gnome, Halfling, Dwarven, and Draconic.


Sulkai names are usually Celtic or Norse.
