Stonepeople (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Jelts walked slowly forward as the gnoll packs' arrows bounced off his rock-hard skin; his companions stared in awe as he walked up and broke the neck of a Gnoll in one swift blow. The terrified gnolls that remained retreated into the forest as quickly as they came.
“Huh,” Grog the seven foot half-orc said to the elven sorceror at his side, “I didn’t know he could do that.”
“To think,” Shaun muttered to himself, “that Grog would know anything at all.”
- Excerpt from "The Stone God"
Anthropomorphous Stones, or "stonepeople", are intelligent embodiments of earth shaped in the form of tall humans with very broad shoulders. They are always very heavy and very intimidating; other humanoids usually keep their distance out of fear or plain respect for their apparent strength. On the material plane stonepeople move slowly and awkwardly with a lumbering gait, though they have been known for sudden bursts of muscle-driven speed.
It is a known fact that stonepeople are just yet another kind of earth elemental. They are known to be brutish, and have been feared and remembered for their incredible strength. They can truly dominate the battlefield.
Stonepeople in the material plane are usually alone and rarely do they ever see another one of their kind, but in the elemental plane of Earth they live much like humans. They have societies capable of building castles and waging war... always, waging war.
Stonemen are usually named after different types of stone.
Male: Agrelite, Apatite, Atlantisite, Aragonite, Axinite...
Female: Ametha, Quartz, Angelite, Ametrine, Amber...
Stonepeople have a huge, strong body capable of easily lifting boulders and other heavy objects.
