This week we go from small and furry to large and slimy as we continue with series of character sheets looking at the Inhumans who began the Great War nearly 2000 years ago.
When playing as the Inhumans, remember that the runes and arrays were given to humans only, meaning that while the Inhumans could draw and use the runes, there wouldn’t have been much of a chance to do so when they were at war with humans. Also keep in mind that only human blood can activate the arrays (other than energy and orichalcum of course). Inhuman blood has no effect on the arrays just like animal blood.
Next up this week are the Froskdyr!
The Froskdyr are large, amphibious creatures that are as powerful as they are quick and we see this with their Athletics starting at 50, their Constitution at 40 and their Fight at 55. All three of these skills can go above 100, so a Froskdyr at his best will be able to beat any human he finds. One thing where the Froskdyr fall down, however, is the social aspect. They spent most of their lives underwater and thus, while they did form families and communities, were never prone to idle chatter and gossip, their voices reserved for only the most important of matters.
Some excerpts from The Runed Age Corebook about the Cordyr.
“What records we do have, that are of any reasonable degree of accuracy, comes from the Froskdyr captive taken near the end of the Purge by the Emperor of the then Empire of Man. This poor creature called Beltiz, enslaved
by the Emperor and trotted out for his court’s amusement wrote down the oral history of this people as best he knew it. The Froskdyr, amphibious as they were, had little use for writing when it could not survive their time under the water, so kept their histories as songs much as we Neoists have done.”
“Being amphibious creatures, the Froskdyr never ventured far from water, their communities always on riverbanks, streambeds and on lake edges. When they did set out from their watery homes, which Beltiz tells us was not
quite often, their towns and cities were in the wettest, most humid areas of the eastern continent’s rainforests.”
“In respects to the Froskdyr military during the Great War, it is unsurprisingly that their focus was in the water rather than on land. Our own records state that their navy was beyond compare, and even without ships there
was nothing as dangerous as a Froskdyr in the water. The seas, rivers, lakes and swamps were areas that we avoided later in the war, knowing that any amount of Froskdyr could be hiding beneath the surface and we would never have known. ”
