Xecilin (pronounced Sha seel een)[edit]


Like humans, Xacilin are neutral alignment-wise, though, again like humans, only because they have no specific tendencies towards anything else. More to come.

Physical Description[edit]

They are human-like, but are closer in height and weight to a half-elf. They have pointed ears like an elf's, small horns protruding from their forehead, sharp front teeth, and leathery skin. Their hair tends towards browns and blacks, with an occasional red, and is almost never blonde. Their eyes run the gamut of colors like human's, but tend towards brown as the most common. Their skin is usually very light.


Xacilin are in contact only with Gnomes, Anubins, and Orcs. The Gnomes are furious with Xacilin for destroying the forest as they expand, and te Xacilin consider the Gnomes crazed savages. Although the Anubins and Orcs are unfriendly with each other, they are both friendly enough with the Xacilin, and the Anubins frequently trade with the Xacilin for gold.




Xacilin live in the forest and the foothills, but are quite adaptable.


Xacilin have a monolatristic religion, worshiping only their god and the demi-gods who serve him. They also venerate Coutals, believing them to be servants of their god.


Starting Languages: Xacilin Bonus Languages: Anubin, Orc, Common, Gnome Although they have no connection with humans, they may learn the language through their friends the Anubins.


The Xacilin have a minimum of five names, their sacred name, chosen at adulthood and kept secret from all save their spouse, their family name, usable only by members of the family, their private name, usable only by their close friends, their public name, usable by anyone, and their surname, also usable by anyone. They may pick up additional names that denote skills hey have or accomplishments they have made. These are also public names. Use of a name without societal permission is considered a grave insult to the person, usually resulting in a duel.
