Jump to: navigation, search



Pterasaurins are very fidgetty. They typically fly in and steal shiny things and food, which they return back to the nest. When scared they try to fly away, but fight back with vicious bites and claws if cornered. When happy they often will socialize in large cities.

Physical Description[edit]

Pterasaurian males are usually three to three and a half feet tall and weigh about 10 pounds, females bieng slightly smaller. They have long, leathery wings and a short coat of gray, brown or blackish fur covering their bodies. They have large eyes, and mouths full of sharp, needle like teeth or strong beaks. they may have a crest or long, paddle-like tail.


Pterasaurians usually get along with other dinors, with the exception of stegirians, ankolos and tyrannians. They also like halflings and gnomes because of they love for sneaking and humor, humans for their versatility, half-orcs and half-elfs for their exclusion from society, and elves for their love for the fine things in life. They usually don't avoid or exclude other races, aside from orcs, goblins, etc.


They often choose to be Chaotic Good or Chaotic Neutral.


They originate from the Arleklian Cliffs but live anywhere in high, vertical places. Their nests are composed of sticks jammed into rocks that make a "shelf" and covering that shelf up with brush or other sticks.


They worship Petralakia, the god of the storms. His domains are chaos, air, animal, ocean and water. He is chaotic Neutral.


They speak Dinorish and Common.


Names are aquired via a cliff dive, where they plummet off their cliff into the water below and see a vision sent to them. That vision is their name.
