"...We were walking out of the cave when it happened... a monstrous humanoid made of nothing but bones came right at us, and that's why I'm late to our anniversary" -John The Miner

Physical Description[edit]

The creature known... as the skeleton

They are just skeletons from humans, even though there are sentient skeletons from other races they can't seem to have free will. Skeletons bones can't be disconnected because some sort of magic is keeping them together.


Skeletons throughout the history of every other race have been known to rise from their resting places and kill others, but some skeletons are risen from by necromancers to do their bidding and occasionally skeletons will rise peacefully, only wishing to live a normal life.


Skeletons that rise peacefully are usually the only ones with free will, sadly gaining free will has made them lose their memories from the days they were alive, so every once in a while villages of skeletons will form, but since skeletons are thought by other races to be monsters those villages never tend to last long.

Skeleton Names[edit]

All skeletons lose their memory so it seems that skeletons have created their own unique names.

Male: Aarith, Enorach, Jeriff, and Helophram

Female: Stelchy, Aeliena, and Hunai
