I am the goddess of truth, yet you remain... A man of mystery. What I deserve is to know more about a man who professes such interest in me.

Physical Description

Untitled by X.four

Amazons are large, well-built humanoids with powerful builds. They are entirely female, and a member of any race would find them beautiful. Their skin colors are as varied as humans' are, ranging from incredibly dark-skinned to borderline transparent, and their hair usually tends to be white, black, or gray.

Amazons reproduce somewhat rarely, by praying to their gods with extravagant feasts and revels. The morning after a successful ceremony, a baby amazon will be found somewhere nearby, in a cradle-shaped tree or shrub of golden leaves and vines, apparently sprung from out the ground. Leaves from these Vinecradles are often kept by the amazon throughout their lives, whether sewn into clothes, worn in their hair, or gilded to weapons. There is also a myth among amazons, that those sisters of gloomy temperament are first found on rainy or overcast mornings. Typically, an amazon will have two or more volunteer-mothers, but in truth are raised by the whole tribe together. Rarely, amazons can also be born from relationships with other races, though they will often face mild prejudice from their sisters. Indeed to this day, no known Amazonian Queen has been born this way.


Amazons are a very proud but kindhearted sharing race. They often spend their time together crafting or decorating their armor, making food, and most commonly playing sports such as goatball which they took from their goliath allies. Amazons also love to hunt for sport and pull the occasional prank.


Amazons love to interact with other races, most commonly trading and adventuring. They can get along with almost all races, excluding most evil races since those races tend to be extremely self-interested. Most amazons are not attracted to men, but the rare love interest does arise. Most races are fond of the amazons for their smithing abilities that are good enough to rival even the dwarves in most respects, though Amazonian craftsmanship more commonly has elaborate designs and is often decorated with pelts or feathers of monsters they have slain.
