Runeterra: Frelijordian (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Now this'll put hair on your chest!
|Tryndamere - The Barbarian King |
The Frelijord is a cold harsh climate, winters there are unforgiving and summers aren't agriculturally productive when compared to other lands. Despite all this brutality, many people populate this country. Villages ruled by Thanes dot the landscape and tribes raid them. For most winters, Frelijordians band together to survive. Unfortunately, due to recent developments, the Frelijord is on the brink of civil war.
Armstrong. Headstrong... Not so much.
Frelijordians are very powerful folk, some folk heroes, such as Braum, have been known to chop wood with their bare hands or dig through solid rock without any tool. Muscular people are often the survivors in Frelijordian winters, the ones who train with the axe and sword all day, not the ones who delve into books. Frelijordians are seldom educated but those that are often get appointed as leaders or, at least, assistants to Thanes for their vast knowledge. The typical Frelijordian stands at about 7 1/2 feet in height and weigh 250 pounds with a tousle of black, red, or white hair on their head. Their skin is extremely fair.
Although elders are revered in the Frelijord, few Frelijordians make it to sixty. Most Frelijordians are strong and with a powerful constitution but as dangerous a climate the Frelijord is, growing old usually means growing weaker but wiser and wisdom won't save you from the Frelijord. If a Frelijordian is tough as nails or live in a simpler country, such as Yordle Land, they can live to be 75 years of age. Frelijordians mature as fast as most other humans, by 20 they're fully mature. If Frelijordian winters were not so bitter and Frelijordians decided to all be a lawful easy folk, the life expectancy would soar.
