From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Cactii are a race of magically animated, intelligent cacti. They tend to congregate in desert areas, and so have little contact with other races, except other desert-dwelling races. They are very friendly.

Physical Description[edit]

Cactii are around 6' 0", with prickly skin ranging from hues of lime green to corn husk brown. Males are have a slight muscular build, though some males are under- or over-weight. Females have a flower atop their heads where petals grow down from, forming "hair". Cactii are humanoid in shape.


Cactii get along fine with any desert-dwelling race. Apart from those, cactii are good friends with the elves of Taresi, due to their arboreal nature. They also get along well with Taresi Trolls. Other than that, cactii enjoy all the other races on Taresi.


Cactii can be any alignment, but most tend to be either neutral or neutral on the lawful-chaotic axis. There are very few evil cactii, but they still exist.


Cactii occupy the desert country of Arizej, which they share with the sphinxes and other desert dwellers.


Cactii can follow different faiths, but all cactii put high regard to Saguara, the cactii creator-goddess.


Cactii speak their own language, Needletongue, as well as Common and other languages. Cactii can communicate, albeit crudely, with all other plant creatures using a simple language and body gestures to convey simple meaning.


Cactii have a personal name, a family name, and a cactii name, which is a common human name added to the word "cactus". An example name is Christina Spineflower Cactina.
