Amanel (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


I was always suspicious of the elf we had incorporated into our party. For starters she was taller than me, a human man who's considered rather tall, for a human. She could never see as far in the dark as Narrossh, our half-elf spellslinger. We never asked her about her heritage since it would seem rather rude, and not to mention the fact that she was the most skilled swordsman we've ever seen. But when we took a venture down to the caves of Lyrnor, her true colors were revealed. A part of the ceiling caved in, the mass of rock was headed right towards her. Using some sort of teleport she managed to get away from the falling debris. That is when we put her to some gentle questioning, she still had her blades on her.

Physical Description

Amanel heavily resemble wood elves, same complexion, same build and same ears, but they are abnormally tall, which can be a giveaway to some perceptive folk. These warriors have been known to undergo a sudden transformation when they reach mental maturity, through their embodiment of an ideal that serves as a conduit for their innate powers allowing them to become abnormally swift in their movements and masters on the fields of battle. The manifestation of this power usually depends on the ideal which they pursue.


The amanel are native to the plane of Arborea. The amanel had made their goal as a people to eradicate all evil in the world, whichever dark corner or malicious pit. They had accomplished their goal in Arborea to an extent which most amanel felt as if they needed more work to do. So they turned to the Material plane rich with evil and cruelty, the perfect place for the zealous amanel. In terms of their worship, amanel don't worship any one god or specific pantheon but pay their respects were needed to various Gods of various pantheons.


Amanel are a civilized people, a strange contrast to the chaotic nature of the plane of Arborea. But when it to the great combat between good and evil they fight as if it all depends on it. They fight till the last breath and use every advantage they can muster, they are not above ambushes or utilizing unfair tactics. Unlike most communities based upon combat, they have no code of honor. They believe honor matters not if you have achieved victory. This has earned them a bit of infamy in arenas like coliseums, but they are well renowned in darker areas like underground fighting rings.
