Qroxizian (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|“||We may tower over many, but we must remember our people have once fallen. If we didn't, we would still have our empire. We do not rebuild because we hate ourselves. But to be sure we remember what our ancestors forgot. We are a mighty people but we must know of our own strength, and more importantly our flaws as a people.||”|
|“||DO NOT FEAR DEATH, EMBRACE IT. WE ARE DARK BY OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS BELIEFS BUT WE ARE THE CLOSEST TO NATURE WITH OUR GOD OF DEATH. WE WILL NEVER ESCAPE DEATH AND WE SHALL NEVER FORGET THAT. LOVE LIFE AND HONOR THE DEAD! BE STRONG OR DIE FOR THE STRONGER!||”|
|—Dark Qroxizian belief.|
|“||May the great gods of our ancestors watch over us. May Abesk the smiling god of life protect us.||”|
|—A Qroxizian prayer.|
|“||LIVE LONG, GROW STRONG, RAISE THE WEAK! FOR QROXIZ!"||”|
|—A Qroxizian warrior/hunter chant.|

Qroxizian skin color can vary, but they tend to range from a light brown to a bronze. In contrast, dark qroxizians tend to have pale white or dull grey skin. Their hair is usually brown, black or red, but they can be other colors. Their tribal paints and tattoos are usually red, blue, white, and black, but the colors can vary based on tribe. Their traditional clothing is leather with exposed torsos, when they aren't hunting or preparing for battle.
The qroxizian once had a powerful Qroxiz empire. They valued their gods and were oddly advanced at the time. Today, they are mostly nomadic, and have lost much of their history. What is known is that the Oroxiz empire is no more, and it lives only in the memory of the oldest of the race. They are very careful when they travel. As such, very few will ever see them on the road. They have become druidic by nature and love the world they live in. Some of them have become paler and duller in color. They are known as dark qroxizians, and are usually more bloodthirsty members.
The qroxizians are a nomadic tribal people, and have formed various tribes over the years. Each tribe has a chief, two vice-chiefs, and an elder minimum. They are a close group of people and value their tribe a great deal. They respect their leaders a great deal, and the elders teach magic to the tribe. They rarely worship other pantheons then their own, and often carve totems and statues of wood and stone for their gods. Their ancestors made golems out of these totems and statues.
Qroxizians are often barbarians, druids, and rangers, but have no problems with other classes and welcome new ideas. Magic users tend to train to become elders, or vice-chiefs. When a chief falls, the elder will pick a vice-chief to become the new chief. The elder is an advisor and only has power over the chiefs once the chief has passed. Vice-chiefs are well respected and chosen by the chief. Some chiefs pick up to eight vice-chiefs who may act for the chief when unable, and vice-chiefs tend to function as generals during wartime.
Qroxizians place tribal paint and tattoos on magic users, and respected members of their tribe. The more decorated their body the more the tribe values them. Ceremonies are very important to them. The most important are naming ceremonies, New Year's, and honoring of the fallen.
Qroxizians have their own pantheon. Abesk, a large jovial fat guardian, is their main god. He is known as a god of life, protection, feasts, celebrations, ceremonies, and medicine. They also value Qroxizog, believed to be the first of their people and a heroic entity. Qroxizog is the god of armor, and heroes. Ceremonial armor is made in his form, the most important of chiefs are given real armor made in Qroxizog's form, and, while on the battlefield, they are believed to be a vessel for Qroxizog.
Dark qroxizians, while they still respect Abesk, they worship Oawechack, a god of death; usually depicted as a small entity with a skull face. Oawechack is also known to all Qroxizians as 'the Great Humbler' for no matter how strong or tall you are, the short god Oawechack will always take your life. Akrijen is a guardian of the dead, and servant of Oawechack. He haunts any who choose to disgrace the honored dead, and those who try to raise dead qroxizians. They have other gods, but they can vary a great deal from tribe to tribe.
Qroxizians are a tribal nomadic people, and they do not usually use surnames. Most names are only a few syllables. Names evolve as status changes in the tribe. Grand titles are given for performing impressive feats. Parents bring children before the elder and chiefs for the Naming Ceremony that is performed after one year of survival.
