Viper people[edit]


Viper people have a fair few amount of interests and they spend their days fulfilling them. They usually jump at any chance to have an adventure. They enjoy physical activity and fighting they hate people who seek to kill others weaker then them (Unless they are evil). They are very childish at times.

Physical Description[edit]

Often Viper people have scales along their chests with a dull pigment similar to the color of the skin that covers their neck, head, hands, legs and shoulders. For example if their skin is dark brown then their scales would be grey or dark green. They are very tall.


While friendly Viper people look dangerous at first but after a while they reveal their childlike personalities and often make a few friends.


They can be any alignment but the alignment needs to be explained in a way that it would fit with the childlike and simple personality a viper person has.


Viper people live in any environment and have no preference.


Viper people aren't strong worshipers they don't pray often or sacrifice things to their gods often.


Viper people speak common they have no bonus languages however they can speak to snakes in any language and the snake will listen.
