"Calm yourself child an gaze into all I have seen." The roba said gently as he wiped the child's tears and explained why he should not be sad about his parents passing but glad that they have moved on.

Physical Description[edit]

Roba appear like spindly tall humanoids with very basic features. They have no hair anywhere on their bodies and always appear to have their eyes shut. The only give away that a roba posses is a small colored gem on the base of their neck which betrays their elemental heritage. This stone is always either blue, green, red or purple but can be any shade of these colors (color determined by subrace).


The roba are scribes and scholars for the fey and other powerful planar beings. It is said they were once pure fey but an attempted excursion to understand the elemental planes better tainted the roba and they have broken into 4 groups ever since. The roba-tasta or true roba of the Feywild which have green stones and curious personalities, the roba-flamda of the elemental plane of fire which have red stones and are exceptionally motivated, the roba-aqua from the elemental plane of water which have blue stones and have caring dispositions and the roba-ereba which can occur in any circle of roba have purple stones and a downward angry view.


Roba society is very much the same even across different subraces. Roba are on a never ending quest for information and travel across the universe to find the answers to the questions that keep people up at night. Before a roba has travelled through the cosmos they must pass a test to prove to the other roba of its group that it will not fail. Top do this a roba must go on a chlinate or pilgrimage onto the material plane to complete something of significance. This can be anything from deciphering old texts to helping to bring down an tightfisted tyrant. After they complete this goal the roba waits for its death on the material plane which unlocks its mighty elemental spirit and sets it free to discover the answers of the cosmos.

Roba Names[edit]

Roba always choose their own names but generally select names that reflect states of mind or well being. Males usually pick names of clam emotions while women generally pick stronger names.

Male: Harmony, Ebb, Tranquility, Fright

Female: Rage, Enthusiasm, Ecstatic, Insanity
