Mongrelfolk (12 RP)

Mongrelfolk are a hodgepodge race of deformed oddities. Possessed of the ability to breed with nearly any humanoid creature, each new generation of mongrels adds new layers of deformity and mutation to their people, but as hideous as these deformities are, they more often than not grant the mongrel key abilities to aid in his survival in the dangerous wilds of Nar-Voth. Despite their monstrous appearances, mongrelfolk are generally hardworking and peaceful creatures. This strange mixture enforces mongrelfolk’s place in the edges of the world, for they are shunned by all who fear their twisted appearance. Mistaken as enemies by all, mongrelfolk just prefer to be left alone.

Physical Description

There is no simple way to describe the way a mongrelman might look. Their appearances vary greatly based on that particular individual’s lineage. They have a multitude of different racial features that would appear to have come from the many different humanoid races. Most mongrelmen appear as deformed humanoids, a collection of various traits that do not belong together.

A mongrelfolk can produce offspring with any humanoid, mixing bloodlines in strange ways to create hardier crossbreeds. No two mongrelfolk look the same. One may have a face that is half hobgoblin, half lizardfolk, with one human-like foot and one cloven hoof, while his sister may have elven ears, a dwarven beard, orc tusks, and clawed hands. Each mongrelfolk usually has characteristics from at least a half-dozen different races. Despite their varied physical forms, most mongrelfolk average 5–6 feet tall and weigh between 150 and 250 pounds on average. A tragically short lifespan limits the creatures’ population growth— mongrelfolk rarely live past 35 years.

Society

Mongrelfolk are one of the groups of descendants of the Azlanti who hid underground to escape the destruction of Earthfall. Their ability to breed with almost any humanoid creature, adding new mutations with every generation, has led these creatures to quickly adapt and survive the dangers of Nar-Voth.

Most mongrelfolk live below the surface of the world in hidden caves far from civilization. These creatures pride themselves on their survival skills, for the bowels of the earth are no place for weaklings. Other foul and intelligent races who claim dominion in the underworld take mongrelfolk as slaves (particularly morlocks and derro), finding this deformed race’s docile nature and hardworking attitude makes them extremely useful as tools of labor. In this role, mongrelfolk still fall back on their pride of survival, slow to rebel and patiently waiting for the overthrow of their masters.

Mongrelfolk society is a collection of close-knit tribes, each with its own leader. mongrelfolk never fight against other mongrelfolk, preferring to live peaceably with others of their kind, for all mongrelfolk know they are shunned by outsiders and must stick together if their race is to survive. Mongrelfolk dwelling on the surface sometimes live amid the hustle and bustle of cities, sequestering themselves in ghettos and sewers to avoid notice. Urban mongrelfolk may rely on begging and pickpocketing to get by, but most form rural communities near trading routes.

Relations

Mongrelfolk are shunned from society because of their appearance. They make their homes far from civilization, and those few encountered in settled areas are usually slaves or servants of the local humanoid races. Mongrelfolk that must travel among other races take precautions so as not to reveal their true identities, using cloaks, capes, and the like to hide their forms. Despite this ostracization, mongrelfolk are the most friendly and hospitable to surface dwellers among the inhabitants of Nar-Voth, sometimes trading with them or providing shelter. This benevolence to outsiders is an attribute that has not garnered them many friends in those darkened tunnels.

Alignment and Religion

The mongrelmen’s pantheon is culled from a wide range of other racial pantheons, with the most commonly worshiped deities being Gozreh, Pharasma, and Sivanah.
