Created by Stryth as a gift to a fair maiden, the avians are bird-like
creatures that resemble humans.
They have wings that allow them to be in constant flight. Avians have been known to
travel great distances without needing a rest. When they are not in flight, avians are able
to fold their wings and rest them on their backs. Because they spend little time with more
terrestrial races, they are vulnerable to diseases.
Because of their seclusion from the outside and their isolation upon their mountain tops,
the history of Avians before they were noticed are not known. However, this coming of age
has brought more Avians into Serin towns and lands, and with such contact, the knowledge
of their ways. Avians believe in the sanctity of the Winds. The winds are constant and
yet ever changing upon the land. Their belief is that those who must walk know not the life
upon the open air, the freedom that glide beneath their wings, and the sense of dignity one
gains. They are quick upon their feet for what runs in their blood is but the essence of
the wind. Fair of thought and strength, and pure of physical attributes all avians are.
Roleplaying with other races
During the second Age of Creation, Rodyn, Demi God of Plagues, brought destruction upon
the lands of these fair creatures. Some became twisted by war and ventured onto the paths
of darkness and destruction, while others felt the horrors of war and focused their cause
to healing and life. Some were held in high regards by towns and used them as spys to gain
information on nearby kingdoms. The development of Avians throughout Serin has been widely
applied as many guilds accept these fair creatures. Though they have no place to call
home, their guilds have given a sense of home to them.
- Flying is a double edged sword. Avians who choose to join the
warrior guilds will
find it harder to dirt kick, bash and trip while flying. Conversely their opponents
will find those skills less effective against an flying avian.
- Certain weapons do disease based attacks which are very harmful to avians.
- While flying, avians cannot be tripped. This is very advantageous to those who wish to join the mage guilds.
- With solid stats, avians can excel in any profession.
- The plague spell is an excellent way to counter avians resourceful movement.
