Turtlefolk (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
<!- Intro. Why do they go on adventures? ->
Turtlefolk are old, wise beings that live for hundreds of years. They have hard, strong shells and flaky skin with green or brown stripes. When standing on two legs, their height can range from just 4 inches all the way up to five feet.
Turtlefolk were created by the god Oghma(god of knowledge). Turtlefolk were created to hold all the knowledge of the world, but, this did not bode well as the other gods believed this to be unfair. Before the rest of the gods could stop him, he was able to make a couple tutlefolk, but he was unable to give them the knowledge of the world. In the beginning, the turtlefolk were unlucky, as the gods were very displeased with their existence. After 2 decades, the gods showed them mercy and sent them to an island. This island was eventually found by humans, and the humans brought them(turtlefolk) over to the main land.
Turtlefolk live peacefully in small communities and large city’s filled with other races. However, some believe that if they do not do their job, they won’t survive, so they must be very productive. Their communities are able to build ships that can take weeks, in just a few days.
