I have been authorized by the powers that be to publish another book excerpt! This is going to be a sneak peak at another playable race, the fearsome Avari!
Without further ado, I am proud to present the Avari!
“Avari wings beat fearful hymns….” – Old Zephyria Saying
While they may have a celestial appearance to them, do not let the beneficent appearance of the Avari fool you. The Avari are descendants of an older bird culture, a species now long lost to the mists of time.
Their home city is a small mountainous island in the Selestran Sea… and while they do perform trade with other races across the map, Avari have never opened up their homelands to outsiders. Trespassing upon Avari lands is punishable by immediate execution, no trial held.
When interacting with an Avari, they will be cold & aloof… and practically ruthless in any diplomatic dealings. They are cunning in combat, and underhanded in business.
Avari are 1.8 meters in height, standing just slightly taller than the average human. They share all the standard physical characteristics of the average human as well… except for the wings and feathers. As Avari are (according to the legends) descended from an older avian species, they evolved with fully functional wings growing from the middle of their shoulder blades. These wings can easily span 8 to 10 feet on a healthy adult, and are far stronger in raw limb power than the Avari’s actual arms. Their heads are covered in medium to short length feathers instead of hair, the coloration range of which is always a matter of breeding and descent. The Avari culture takes great pride in their racial heritage, and as such makes heavy use of the bird motif all throughout their armor and décor. They are a proud species with complex social intricacies, which can often manifest in their fashion style.
