Pictsies (3.5e Race)
Pictsies enjoy drinking, fighting and stealing. They are very strong and are willing to fight nearly anyone. They hate royalty and have a intense distrust for authority figures in general. They are generally afraid of the law and often believe that any writing is magical. If their names are written down they worry that it might lead to their incarceration, so they dislike people knowing their names.
See Wikipedia for more detail.
Pictsies are usually 6 inches tall, and are wiry. They all have red hair and blue skin. They are very strong for their size, and also amazingly fast. Pictsie adventurers are all male as the female pictsies (who are known as the kelda) are very rare, and they lead the clans of pictsies.
Pictsies dislike other Fey and Elves. They feel justified in stealing from anyone except for the poor. They don't mind humans, or the other humanoid races in general, but only really respect female magic users.
Pictsies are usually Chaotic Neutral
Pictsies live in the low hills, and in the mountains.
Pictsies do not have any particular deity. They believe that they are dead and are in their own heaven. They believe that they were good in a previous life and so they were sent to the world as a reward. If they end this life, they believe that they have been reborn into the real world again.
