Physical Description[edit]

Dirt, just dirt

Sentient dirt is just a little mound of dirt that no matter what can not be separated. Sentient dirt has no genders because... it's dirt. Sentient dirt can't move by itself because... it's dirt. Sentient dirt has no facial features or limbs because... it's dirt.


This race of sentient dirt appears when a insanely powerful wizard misfires a very powerful spell of theirs and that spell hits a small mound of dirt... this happens rarely though which means sentient dirt is sometimes considered legendary.


There isn't that much of a society for sentient dirts because of their rarity, but if two sentient dirts were to meet each other they would battle to the death.
