Shuddeni Image

The shuddeni are a loathsome race originating deep within the bowels of the earth. Constructing vast cave cities, the shuddeni lived for centuries without contact with the other races, during which time they enslaved the muscular chaja, perfected their magical arts, and grew steadily in power. Then, after thousands of years of solitude, the shuddeni burst forth upon Avendar with a hatred and destruction unmatched among races.

The shuddeni appear as man-height humanoids with pale gray, deeply-wrinkled skin. Usually stick-thin, the shuddeni are known for their physical agility and the strength of their minds. One of their most unusual features is the fact that they are eyeless, using another little-understood sense to detect the world around them.

Note for newer players: Shuddeni must be played as having dark and evil natures. They are dedicated to hatred, greed, and cruelty, and thus require some extra consideration when roleplaying. They are more likely to be attacked by some NPCs and PCs simply because of their race than most characters are. They are more likely to be feared and mistrusted by both strangers and aquaintances.

You can view several sample descriptions from past shuddeni characters.
