Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: Very little usable information exists for describing the race. Also there are blatant contradictions (i.e. associates with dark elves but dislikes evil) throughout the racial description. Since it is actively being worked on in the last 6 months I will forgo tagging for deletion for now.

You can help D&D Wiki by finishing and/or adding flavor to this page. When the flavor has been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand the idea behind this page please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

Pond Rainids[edit]


Cave rainids are wise and industrious, and are often the most welcoming and kind of all the peoples in their ecosystems, which tend to be the unforgiving troglododytic sort. They are strict and stern, but fair and judicious. Many of them ascribe various myths to the world outside of the caves they call home, seeing them as a strange realm, where the ceiling changes constantly in various cycles of light and darkness.

Physical Description[edit]

Cave rainids are about six feet tall, and are lean and tend to have a portly build, even their warriors. Their faces are featureless aside from a few holes for a mouth, nostrils and ears, but with no lips, external ears or nose. The whiter races generally live in aquatic caves and the yellower races in air-breathing caves


Cave rainids are typically allied with the more civilized cave-dwelling races, most commonly exiled drow and myconids who they work to rehabilitate in the case of the former and in the latter case, they trade knowledge with freely. They are usually hostile to the more chaotic and evil denizens of the dark. They do get along decently well with dwarves, elves and gnomes, occassionally trading with them and offering safe haven and safe passage to them if needed.


Lawful Neutral or Good most commonly


Cave rainids are found in any cave-based ecosystem that is not totally dry. They are equally at home underwater or in air.


Cave rainids have their own tongue. Known as Rainid, it consits of various hard sounds with spaces and vowels to symbolize intent. Pond Rainid is similary but often incorporates hand gestures for underwater communication


The most common sounds in the pond rainid language are h, v, x, y, sh, ch, l, z, s.
