Guardians (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|“||I address this warning to every adventurer in this relm, a forgotten god's lost temple may not be as empty or peaceful as it may be, not as long that the guardians will stand tall.||”|
|—Ray Silverfang, adventurer of the Golden Sun guild|
The guardians have runes that cover their entire body except on their head showing their alignment to their god. Those colossus have an animal head and some time features of that animal that spread on their body. Even the weakest of them show an impressive musculature and the smallest of their kind is well over an average human.
Their history seem to start around the dawn of civilization, when the primordial gods were still shaping the world to their image. They were directly created by them to protect and serve them in the mortal relm. Their long live spend allowed them to master the art of craftsmanship, fighting and even magic, but they seemingly always stick to the same type of work for the rest of their live until their work reach the level of perfection that a god will find satisfying. Because of that they were able to build, preserve and even enchant the temple built in the honor of their master. But as soon that their god were starting to die or being exiled, they hid themselves in the temples they built and protected the remaining artifacts of their creators. During millennials their clans prospered hidden from the rest of the world until some foolish adventurers broke the seals that kept their temples sealed and hidden, unleashing an old race back in a world too modern for them.
They live in a society that is centered in mastering their art since their early age, always wanting to improve themselves by any meaning from goblin rudimentary craftsmanship to the godly work of the giants, except hill giant for obvious reason. They have a clear hierarchy in their tribe and respect it totally. The high priest/chief is at the top of the ladder followed by the relics guards, then the elders and the acolytes, the art masters and finally the learners as they call the ones who haven't mastered their art yet. They don't have a patriarchal nor matriarchal society, simply the most versed and linked to the god is the leader and the rest is maintain trough respect regarding the age of the member. When out of the clan they quickly find a strong leader to follow that fit their way of thinking. In some rare occasions, a guardian may go rogue and will try to take down the cults to reclaim the place of their god.
The guardians are god spawned and made to serve them perfectly.
