    Re: [OOC] Races of Eryonne

    Race: Quillets
    Lifespan: 100 years (25)
    Height: 2.5 feet - 4.5 feet (3.5 feet)

    Description:
    Quillets come in the typical colors of the other races of Eryonne from light skinned to dark skinned. There are slender and there are fat Quillets. They have pointed ears like elf but are far shorter.

    Personality:
    Quillets are explorers and they lack the common sense to be afraid. They do not understand the concept of death because no Quillet has ever been found dead by another Quillet because they turn a strange blue color when they die and are not recognized as Quillets. They have always been the victim of their curiosity. In addition, they do not have the concept of private property. And they will take anything that attracts their eye and think it belongs to them.

    Strengths and Weaknesses:
    Strengths - there is not a lock that they can't get through eventually.
    They are also good scouts because they will scout anywhere as long as nothing distracts them from their mission
    They have excellent eyesight and hearing. Possibly second only to the Elves

    Weakness
    - Very short attention span and are easily distracted
    They don't know when to be afraid and will be curious about anything
    Can be bribed to be good by those that get to know a Quillet personally with Peppermint Candy. They will happily give up their packs to be searched for it. And won't protest. They love the candy but cannot make it themselves so it helps the other races control them.

    Miscellaneous:
    They are dreaded by the other races that know of them and are typically barred from cities.
    When they turn 16 they leave their families and wander around Eryonne getting into mischief

    Race: Dwarf
    Lifespan: 400(275)
    Height: 2 ft - 4 ft (3.5 ft)

    Description:
    From light skin to dark skin, dwarfs are a varied lot. They have blond, black, red, brown, and gray hair. Most males have a beard by the time they are 15. Some females have whiskers on their faces but not the elegant long beards that males grow. They have trouble getting on a horse and staying on one and some have outright refused to ever get on one. So they tend to rely on carts and consider horses as something to be avoided.

    They live in family societies. And the clans do not always see eye to eye so there has been warfare between clans. Deadly warfare. When such a war breaks out, other clans must try to broker a peace or else the two clans will continue until one is completely wiped out.

    Personality:
    Dwarfs are typically combative with strangers. And they tend to complain about everything and anything. A compliment from a dwarf would be to hear you did an adequate job.

    Unless the dwarf comes into contact with other races before he turns 30, they typically will have nothing to do with the other races. And one that does is often considered an outcast by those that will never have anything to do with the other races. So dwarfs have a choice to make, interact with the world, or stay within Dwarfan society.

    Now the dwarfs will help someone if they are injured and they will sell items to other races. But they will never consider them friends unless the relationship was started before they became 30. Or a tragedy leaves them with no other alternative.

    Strengths and Weaknesses:
    They are probably one of the strongest races on the planet despite their size
    They tend to use battle axes in battle
    They are also good at such jobs as mining and metalwork, carpentry and woodwork
    Their weakness is their gruff exterior tends to put other races off
    They also if they haven't dealt with other races are paranoid of the other races

    Miscellaneous:
    Will become outraged if they are confused with Quillets because of their closeness in size

    Race: Mire Dwarf
    Lifespan: 200 - 300 (100 - 210)
    Height: 1.5ft - 3.5ft (2ft - 3ft)

    Description:
    From light skin to dark skin. Most males have a beard by the time they are 15. Some females have whiskers on their faces but not the elegant long beards that males grow. They have trouble getting on a horse and staying on one and some have outright refused to ever get on one. So they tend to rely on carts and consider horses as something to be avoided. Mire Dwarf beard and hair are greenish colors sometimes brownish are charcoal colored if they live/work around a mire fire, they use boats to work and get around mostly.

    Personality:
    Dwarfs are typically combative with strangers. Mire Dwarves complain less then regular Dwarves. Mire Dwarves don't compliment people as they rarely leave the Mire's they in-habit. Mire Dwarves mostly deal with other Dwarves and those people brave enough to venture into the mire.

    Strengths and Weaknesses:
    They are probably one of the strongest races on the planet despite their size
    They work in the Mire cutting and harvesting peat, harvesting mire oak, dive for coal, harvesting mire butter, harvesting mire iron
    They can swim (though learning can kill them)
    They can't do mining and metalwork
    They smell very very bad (due to smoldering blazes, co2 and they don't bath)
    They are shorter and have shorter life spans then regular Dwarves
    They are not as strong as regular Dwarves

    Miscellaneous:
    Mire Dwarves don't get out much, they take the Dwarfan the unspoken rule of work hard to the extreme, they prefer the mire to the open plains or mountains. Regular Dwarves depend on the Mire Dwarves of a lot of things but they prefer to deal with them as little as possible believing they are lesser Dwarves, not to mention they are stunted and ugly colored hair and really really badly in need of a shower, even by dwarf standers.
