They tend to be devout to there religion and while most are friendly they always seem to be on guard around outsiders. They enjoy gambling and are usually gracious winners as well as gracious losers. Not particularly loyal they tend to drift aimless in there affections and hatreds making them quite unpredictable.
They are usually average height and average build for human. The have slightly pointed ears, slightly pointed fangs, slightly pointed nails and slightly long hair. They are pale and have white hair and white pupil-less eyes.
They view every other race as if they were a younger sibling. They treat them nicely but always have the prejudice that the other races are young and confused and will often laugh off there differences as if the other race was a pitiable and naive children.
They feel most comfortable on the Template Plane which has a very undefined land scape. Even there cities merge with the land and are varied between the few designs they have.
Culture and History
The Culture: The Templain believe that total balance is the best way to live as does the god they serve, Onusuno. Because of this they all carry around a 6-sided die that they roll to determine how they should act in situations. 1-(good) do what's right. 2-(evil) do what selfish 3-(lawful) do what's logical. 4-(chaotic) Do the unexpected. 5-(neutral) remain neutral. 6- use your own judgment or reroll. This system over all allows the Templain to maintain balanced lives. As they are being raised young Templain are exposed to as much as possible when it comes to skills. They train their minds to be quick but thorough and train their bodies to match their wit's. They are taught that to be good at anything is as big of a weakness as being bad at anything, that because you are talented you will let your other skills weaken as you rely on your one talent to solve your problems. Eventually they do specialize using the dice to pick their job (class) but they always maintain their basic training. One of the common phrases they say when something good happens to the is simply:"Onosuno has decided it is my turn for good fortune."
The History: In there history they had powerful ancestors that would chose one of the four paths and stic to it wholly and through this folly caused the planes to split it the event they call the Fragmenting. After the fragmenting they dedicated themselves to the 5th path which was neutrality and ever since they have lived in harmony and peace hidden away from the other planes. Only recently has one of there own deviated. This unkown contacted the material plane and plotted with a wizard to pull the planes back together. While this allowed the Template plane to be accessed from both sides for travel it also created the Inclusive zone where monsters who serve every path are born to jump through the planes and cause panic.
