Tymorian[edit]

Blessed as halflings? Lucky as Tymora's chosen!

Physical Description[edit]

Humanoid in appearance, tymorians look almost the same as humans. Upon closer inspection however, one would see some very odd and distinct differences. Tymorians usually have an extra digit on their hands or feet. This often manifests as a deformed finger or toe. In addition to that, tymorians usually have one eye that is actually a dice. Instead of a singular pupil or iris, that eye appears to be a different side of a six-sided die every time a tymorian blinks. They are thus never without means to gamble, though many would be wary that they can control the number which appears.

History[edit]

Tymorians are blessed humans who have been physically touched by Tymora herself. They feel a distinct connection to all things that govern luck, from card games to dice rolls. They are a race that is very few in number, and have tendencies that can be as dangerous as the kenders and their kleptomania. Tymorians have a fatal flaw in their love of gambling, the thrill and the rush of adrenaline bought forth by the uncertainty of fate. You may hear many tales of unfortunate tymorians which gambled their very lives away in dangerous settings. This is believed to actually be a divine curse on them from Tymora. Supposedly, they were originally a group of humans who loved gambling so much that they sought to bargain with her nemesis, Beshaba, thus bringing down Tymora's ire on them. She, being the whimsical goddess, gave them a curse of fickle luck. They and their descendants would be forever addicted gamblers. Their luck would always be just good enough to keep them in the game. They would never walk away from the subliminal line, tip-toeing around absolute danger.

Society[edit]

Tymorians fit into typical human cities, not showing much difference between them and the commoners at first glance. They travel far and wide to visit and learn many games of chance, be it elven or draconic. In any society, they feel bored if there is no casino or a center for gambling. They, in those cases, often start up a gambling furor of their own. It is not uncommon to hear of casinos or dice houses which were started by Tymorians. However, due to their streak, many are unable to lead normal lives and often lose the wealth they accumulate very quickly. Many end up destitute or on the run from loan shark figures and such.

Personality[edit]

They tend to be very open to games and questions. Tymorians will try to make games of everything, even at great risk. When confronted with death, they will bargain or gamble with it. There is the story of a tymorian who struck a deal with an orc as he was about to be crushed to death. Supposedly, as he was flipping the coin, a rock from the mountaintop coincidentally rolled down and crushed the orc, who had no intention of letting him go anyways. Tymorians thus hold a tenuous relationship with luck and Tymora.
