Trox (28 RP)

Trox are powerfully built, insect-like humanoids. They walk on two strong legs, have two “arms” used for wielding weapons and performing heavy labor, and four smaller arms extending from their midsection.

Trox were once members of a much smaller and more docile race of subterranean burrowers, but were long ago enslaved by the duergar and bred into useful brutes. Eventually, several clans of trox were able to escape their slavers and reach the surface world, though they found the creatures above were just as eager to enslave them. Most trox still live a life of servitude. A free trox tends to be loyal to its true friends and inquisitive, though it can harbor deep grudges and resentments.
