Zealothian (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Zealothians or Zealots for short are a rather friendly race of humanoids. Zealots live in groups of 30 or less wherever they may find all the necessary needs of survival. Though They do tend to mostly be found around more wilderness type areas they can be found in the city as well.Each Zealothian in a villa has a purpose to the group from hunter to teacher to gravedigger. Their purpose is not stamped onto them though, they can be a teacher one day then the next there may be a calling for hunters and may need to take up a bow and gather food within the same day.Elder Zealots have learned what they are best at in the group and are the only ones in the group who may choose what to be and what not for the good of the group.Zealots age much slower then humans and reach adulthood around 40 human years and can live for close to 500years, but this comes at a price. Nature has given them longer life but the birthrate of zealots is very low. Fertility is not as much an issue as survival. Zealothian woman are pregnant for almost a year and give birth to 1-3 children through their life. Devotion twords their children and the loss of their racial traits through breeding with other races has made zealots a dieing breed.Zealots are born fighters trained to take down as many foes before they drop as they can but at the same time taught that fighting requires a purpose. Fighting for the sake of fighting is forbidden.

Physical Description[edit]

Zealots stand anywhere from 5'-7'11" and for most purposes cannot be told apart from humans in physical appearance.Zealots skin color varies with the areas in which they live, but normal stays around pale to dark tanned. Their hair is always metallic, while the eyes are one of the few tall tell signs of their bloodline. A Zealots eyes have a Silver pupil instead of black.


Zealots can befriend almost any race other then chaotic evil races. Zealot elders sometimes choose others or themselves of the group to be loaned out to other races as teachers or warriors normally for a payment of forming an alliance or simply to show friendship twords the other race.This however does not make them weak as Zealots are born fighters and ready to wage war to protect their kind at a moments notice.


Any but Evil.


Anywhere survival is possible


Zealots worship all forms of gods.
