Shellfoged[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Shellforged are blue skinned humanoids with a shell on their back. This shell is deferent depending on the subrace.

History[edit]

Shellfoged, despite their namesake, are not an artificial creation, though their shell was magically implanted onto them thousands of years ago. The race was originally a species of menfolk. It is not known how they gained the shells, it is possible that it was a failed shield type spell or a successful one. Your DM may have you know this or maybe you could decide yourself.

Society[edit]

Shellfoged live in small groups known as “clusters”. These societies are housed in small cities of coral and aquatic stone. Although many spend their whole life in the water some leave for various reasons or never lived there at all.

Shellfoged Names[edit]

Shellfoged are named in accordance with their subrace, for example, a turtle Shellfoged might be called turtleweaver. Males have forceful names while females have calm names.

Male: Walker, rider, clasher, hater.

Female: Weaver, Drifter, Curer, Saviour.
