Mammuthari (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
"An ancient lineage of large, woolly beastmen."
Mammuthari are massive, woolly relatives of Loxodon. They typically stand between seven to nine feet tall, with thick, shaggy pelts. Records show ancient Mammuthari grew to nearly twenty-five feet in height, but those days have long since passed. Unlike their plains-dwelling cousins, they have reduced ears to better acclimate to cold weather. Their trunks typically measure around five feet - six feet long and are remarkable in their dexterity, despite being attached to such large creatures. Their tusks typically measure between two and five feet in length, and curve outwards before bending back in. The saying goes that the older generations of Mammuthari sported larger and more impressive tusks. Mammuthari abide strictly to herbivory - they have two sets of molars on both top and bottom jaws that are constantly replaced throughout their lifespan to cope with the strain of chewing plant matter. Their hands consist of a rather large palm with four short, stubby digits plus a thumb. As such, they are not very efficient at wielding dexterous weapons. Their feet consist of four nails, are round in shape, and have thick padding on their bottoms that cushion their steps - this padding can also detect low-pitched frequencies and allows the Mammuthari to communicate via Infrasound, which sits just below the human range of hearing. They sport a short, poofy tail that typically drapes out the back of whatever armor they wear, should they find any that fits their build. Eye color appears to be limited to warm brown, like Loxodon. Typical fur colors include grey, brown, and black, though white-fur individuals are known to exist.
Mammuthari can communicate through infrasound, much like elephants. This enables them to speak to each other at distances up to 6 miles apart, as well as sense other Mammuthari from distances of over 100 miles away.
Mammuthari are nearly as old as the frigid taiga they call home. Thousands of years ago they trekked the land in great numbers, with herds numbering over one hundred individuals commonly seen. On the continent of Thriskarin they existed as far south as Mogun, though their range gradually receded at the end of the continent's great ice age. Too many folks they exist as a legend, as they have not been seen anywhere close to civilized society in hundreds of years.
Mammuthari live in tribal units called herds, lead by a female leader, or matriarch, which is typically the oldest and wisest female in the group. Herds commonly number between ten and twenty individuals but it is not uncommon to see gatherings of hundreds of Mammuthari in the spring thaw.
