Woolly Rhino-Folk[edit]

If you thought that regular rhino-folk were bad, just wait untill you see their woollier cousins. - a traveler of the northern realms, sharing his encounters with woolly rhino-folk.

Physical Description[edit]

Woolly rhino-folk are related to other rhino-folk, but the difference between them is immediately clear. While they aren't significantly bigger, they are covered in thick fur that is usually a shade of brown or black. In addition, they also have two horns on their nose, one big one at the front and a shorter one behind it. The former can be used as a fearsome natural weapon.


Wether created through the creativity of a deity or millions of years of natural selection, the woolly rhino-folk are a powerful race of anthropomorphic woolly rhinoceros that dwell in the colder regions of whatever realm they inhabit. They are grumpy loners by nature, and rarely interract with anyone else. When they do interract with other races, these woolly rhino-folk are usually wandering mercenaries, looking for either coin or glory.


Woolly rhino-folk live in small tribes led by a Chieftain or Chieftess, who gained their position through a mixture of strenght and wisdom. While they usually aren't above taking advice from other tribe members, especially exsperienced warriors, they're ultimately the one who makes the decisions. Another important position in the tribe, however, is that of Shaman. Shamans can be of any gender and act as the tribe's priest and healer all at once, healing both body and spirit. While woolly rhino-folk can be rough and competitive with one another, they are ultimately loyal to one another, even if they often express it in a form of tough love.

Woolly rhino-folk that are away from their tribe or lack one entirely are often wandering warriors, looking for a chanche to prove themselves, or wandering mercenaries looking for coin.
