The Gate-Stones of Lunestriel
The Lannik were among the original races that called Lunestriel their home before the arrival of the Dowmarii, which means “Portal-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. The Lannik are of the Lomarii, meaning “Lunar-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. While the elves and humans are relatively new to Lunestriel, the Lannik are an old race.
Lannik are short humanoids standing at about 3’8" to 4’6" feet high and weighing around 60 to 100 pounds. They have long, droopy pointed ears. Their skin tones range from a light pink to purple and bluish; orange, red, and brown are typical as well. Those with lighter skin tones often have gold eyes, while those with darker skin have blue eyes. They live to be about 140 years old.
Despite their size, Lannik are rather eager to fight, and enjoy the thrill of it. They are often seen as arrogant and hot-headed, though this is not true. They excel at keeping a cool head in battle and are skilled at tactical thinking. They live in warmer climates and dislike the cold. They get along surprisingly well with half-orcs, dwarves, and dragonborn, but dislike races they consider to be too silly.
