ArtaiadsEdit

[[Summary::A fey race that transform into deer or antelopes.]]

PersonalityEdit

A warm smile on their face and a chortling laugh. Artaiads are often shy creatures, wary and nervous of new people and surprises. They are flighty and skittish, relaxing only when around close friends and family.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Standing shorter than most elves at about five feet tall and weighing around 90 pounds, artaiads are slim and wiry with graceful movements. Artaiads are typically tanned skin, though some may have reddish brown or tawny skin. Their hair ranges from blondes like the color of wood, to clay, earthy browns, mahogany and deep blacks. Their wide, alert eyes are typically brown or green. The whites of their eyes barely show. Males often sport a pair of short horns, though, depending on the artaiad type, they may only have antlers during certain times of the year. In any case, antlers or horns, they never grow very large.

Depending on the type of artaiad, they can also transform into either a medium-sized deer or antelope. This animal form is typically the same as a common type found in the area.

RelationsEdit

Typically, artaiads only get along with other fey races. They often form alliances with other fey folk when their lands are threatened and they share a common enemy. Artaiads can occasionally be found in the company of humanoids who respect nature and wish to live in peace with the land and the creatures that inhabit it.

AlignmentEdit

Living in the harsh wilds, artaiads are often at least partly neutral, though most are also good, and it pains them to have to deal forcefully with other good creatures who oppose their way of life.

LandsEdit

Artaiads need a lot of range to call their homeland. They roam far and wide and can be found in mountain foothills, forests, grassland plains, savannas, jungles, taigas, tundras and scrubland. They range from the chilled northlands to the sweltering south. However, artaiads loathe to live in lands claimed by humanoids and will either simply flee from such places, or mount a fierce attack to keep invaders from despoiling their lands. Artaiads are less likely to attack peaceful frontier settlers who merely wish to make their own way in the world and more likely to attack large-scale invading forces seeking to reap the land and despoil its resources.

ReligionEdit

Artaiads are very connected to the spirits of the lands, and often revere and pay prayer and devotions to nature deities.

LanguageEdit

Artaiads speak Sylvan with fluent fluidity and quick grace. Most artaiads eventually learn Common as well if they plan on communicating with humanoids.

NamesEdit

Upon the birth of a child, the mother will take her newborn out and seek an omen or a sign from nature. She will name her child for this sign (in the Sylvan tongue, of course). However, some artaiad tribes rely on oracles to name newborns. Outside of traditional artaiad culture, they may name their children anything they prefer.
