Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: The part about romantic structure is not explained at all. Djin magic is not explained well enough to be used in a campaign. Overall, the race seems a bit weaker than any first part race.

Physical Description[edit]

Djin Compressed.jpg
A typical Djin

Tall and lanky, this race is covered from head to toe in thick fur that varies in shade from black to white with various shades of brown and gray in between. They have long dexterous fingers and short paws for feet. Females generally have larger manes than males. They have thick tails used for balance and expression. Of note is that they have no external ears, only ear holes.


The history of the djin is a long and sordid one. After evolving to live on the plains above the deep forests, their most recent conflict revolved around the color of magic each djin possesses. These wars lasted for several hundred years, and only recently has peace been negotiated.

There was once a caste system based on magic color, which some old djin still refer to when thinking of who to listen to. From top to bottom, the system was as follows, blue, green, silver, orange, white, black, red, indigo, yellow, pink, violet, brown. While there is still some prejudice, it is less prevalent within those adventuring groups that delve into the deep forests, where a wide variety of skills has always been needed.


Djin live inside of objects that they carry with them. They can go inside an object at will. Their communities are often large family groups that live inside a hut that is a common area with shelving for the objects.

Djin have an interesting romantic structure that differs from that of humans, the three romantic setups are.

Analogous 3: similar, support.

Complimentary 2: friendly rivalry.

Triadic 3: Differing personalities, often help solve problems together.

Djin Adventurers[edit]

Djin often go out to explore the deep forest while they are relatively young and strong. It is seen as a right of passage, a way to truly reach maturity with lifelong friends. Some come out of this time of their life with a lifelong thirst for adventure and the companionship found therein.

Another kind of adventure one might find is an exiled djin, one that is permanently bound to an object until they can do a great favor to one that would release them.

Djin Names[edit]

Djin had many languages once, with the merging into one common language for the djin it has become common practice to give names that have words from the old languages as names as a way of keeping history alive.

Male: Narath, Malcien, Teraxtus

Female: Abluen, Dreni, Malodi
