Pond Rainids[edit]


Like all rainids, pond rainids live in tribal societies with a primitive culture. Their lives are focused on hunting and fishing, which both the men and women do. Pond rainids are typically hostile to outsiders but are not prone to violence without good reason. Some pond rainids do leave their homes to go out into the world, which their anatomy makes possible, and they are more likely to fit in as part of civilized society than any of the other rainid subtypes.

Physical Description[edit]

Rainids are tall, between 6' and 8', and are thickly-built and muscular. They have broad shoulders and thick arms and legs, which make them powerful swimmers and jumpers. Their skin ranges from very light green to a dark shade of olive, and is invariably covered in an array of warts and bumps.


Pond rainids do not usually understand or enjoy the company of non-rainids, but are not typically aggressive or violent towards them.


Any chaotic, but most typically good


Pond rainids live in any freshwater lake, pond or river. They sometimes roam, and are capable of living anywhere reasonably moist. They can travel through deserts but lose 1 point of Constitution (temporarily) every week in very dry weather.


Pond rainids have their own tongue, which is also used as a Common language for other kinds of rainids.


The most common sounds in the pond rainid language are h, v, sh, ch, l, z, s.
