Sapiens (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

They consider themselves a master race. Locked away in a great library these creatures had nothing but books to read. Once a diverse group of races, generations of breeding have mixed the individuality of the races together, thus creating something new. In the quest for knowledge and many arcane experiments, the Sapiens species has had little time for eating or drinking, much less physical exercise or sleep. Through the years the arcane experiments have augmented their outward appearance, and inner mind. Extremely beautiful, they are considered the fairest of all races. they are also considered one of the smartest and wisest, that being said they are a bit frail compared to other races. nonetheless they are very haughty, they believe they are best and flaunt it. but this isn't to say that they aren't kind. ; displayed elsewhere.




Sapiens are haughty and have a bit of superiority complex but they know the proper etiquette of life and live by it. they love being the center of attention and will help others just for the recognition

Physical Description[edit]

Sapiens are very tall, most reach a height of 7 feet or more. But they are very frail and only grow to be a maximum of 200 pounds most of the time. sapiens are usually of a paler human but but have been known to stray. As they are brimming with arcane energy their eyes are always an unnatural blue. They are usually distinguishable from others in a group because they will always be the best looking. and their blue eyes are usually a dead giveaway of what you're staring at.


although haughty, Sapiens are extremely charismatic and get along with just about every race.
