Physical Description[edit]


Gesttil are a goblinoid race with gems for eyes. They are short with dark skin that ranges from brown, black, dark blue, and dark purple. Gesttil can eat like most races, though their digestive systems would prefer their foods to be rotten, spoiled, pickled, or overly-ripe. Their faces don't move much other than their mouths, so people always find it hard to trust them for their unbelievable "poker face".


Gesttil were originally not a race, they were created. A crazy goblin mage wanted to see if he could fuse his own kind with gems so they could have harder skin to survive the harsh world because for some reason goblins are the target of many adventurers. The outcome of the mage's experiment was not the one he had hoped for. The goblin formed to a 4'0 tall being with darker skin, and two gems as eyes and the next one turned out the same, and eventually, over time they became their own race.

To create a gesttil, elemental energy had to be infused with gems. Ruby eyes required fire; sapphire required cold; emeralds required acid; tiger's required lightning.


Gesttil society is a rough subject, they really have no set society, though they can be found around dwarves and some are found around goblins, then there are the rare few that will be found in human settlements.
