The Gate-Stones of Lunestriel
The Herglic were among the original races that called Lunestriel their home before the arrival of the Dowmarii, which means “Portal-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. The Herglic are of the Lomarii, meaning “Lunar-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. While the dwarves and gnomes are relatively new to Lunestriel, the Herglic are an old race.
Imposing whale-like humanoids, herglics are tall and wide, standing at 6’8" to 7’8" feet tall and weighing 320 to 460 pounds. They have arms and legs as well as a blow-hole at the top of their head. They had wide bodies and thick, smooth skin, which ranged in color from pale blue to black. Some herglics had white bellies and white strips on their head and arms on otherwise black skin. They are able to hold their breath for long periods of time and have strong if stocky legs which allow them to swim fairly well in water despite their size. Their eyes vary in color, but are typically blue or green. They live to be about 200 years old.
Herglics are inquisitive but practical. They are generally easygoing and enjoy exploring new places and trying new things. Despite their size, herglics are quite docile. Because of their friendly nature, they are good, and fair, traders. When angered though, they can be extremely fierce. They are tough and charming, but their sheer size limits their nimbleness.
