Female Humans

Short Description: the thin, fiery-haired woman

Description:
The woman before you is slim, with slender, long legs, and gangly, thin arms
that hang from her narrow shoulders.  Her stomach is well muscled, leading up to
a thin neck that supports an oval, smooth face.  She has sparkling blue eyes
that rest above a petite nose, which is smattered with freckles.  She has thin,
deep red lips that rest between two slight dimples.  She has a thin, well
rounded chin, and rosy cheeks.  This face is framed by fiery-red hair that hangs
down to her shoulders in small curls.

Male Humans

Short Description: the swarthy, goateed man

Description:
An ebon braid tied back with a simple leather cord hangs nearly to the waist of
this tall, human male.  His skin, obviously dark already, is tanned into an 
unnatural, near ebon shade by the rays of Suk-Krath.  Coarse, fibrous hair 
covers all visible parts of the man's body, but is groomed on his face into a 
long, black goatee that hangs nearly to his bulging chest.  Thick, densely 
corded arms tell of a life of physical endeavor, and calloused hands confirm 
the tale.  Lighter lines of glossy scar tissue criss cross much of the man's 
visible skin confirming that the physical endeavors are likely martial in 
nature.

Short Description: the pale, sorrel-haired human

Description:
Standing slightly shorter than average for his race, this human male's dark 
hair is long and combed into a semblance of neatness, bound back from his face.
Curling at the ends, the sorrel locks form a loose tail that just covers the 
back of his neck.  His skin is a pale olive hue, with the undertones common to 
many that pervade the land.  His figure is lithe and slender, and has veered 
away from a powerful musculature and developed into the graces that would gift 
the body of a dancer. His face is angular and dark-browed, his dark grey-green 
eyes shaded by the shadows there. His nose is long and thin with a slightly 
curved tip that ends just above the soft flesh of his slim lips.

Short Description: the rugged, bald young man

Description:
This is a well-built human.  His darkly tanned skin lends a rugged tone to his 
well-muscled frame.  Wiry, ropy muscles adorn his arms, which each have one 
long, pale, and thin scar cutting from elbow to wrist. His hands are thick and 
calloused, with the faintly rubberlike scars of a victim of fire lining his 
knuckles and backhand. His torso and midsection are scarless and smooth, with 
well defined muscles stretching beneath the skin.  He has well-developed legs, 
the sort with power and endurance.  His head is bald and shines like polished 
ebony, his pate covered with an intricately detailed white-inked tattoo that 
resembles a crown of claws.  Large and bushy white eyebrows perch atop a set of 
large, seeking eyes the color of slate grey.  His boldly shaped nose juts out 
with stature.  Beneath it squarely rest large lips and a defined jawline.  His 
whole face has the tanned nature of one who spends much time in the sun, with 
smiling, patronly wrinkles framing the mouth and eyes, although he seems 
otherwise young.

Female Elves

Short Description: the dark-haired, grey-eyed elf

Description:
Imperious, dark grey eyes sweep arrogantly across the surroundings of this tall 
female elf.  Her glossy hair, so black it holds shades of blue, is shaved 
except for a long swath, four inches or so in length, resembling a mohawk, 
which sweeps from her forehead to the back of her head, spilling down her back 
in a plume. Her face is lean and pale, marked by a trace of cruelty, her lips 
are typically pursed in a slight, cynical smile. An elaborate spiralling star
in hues of indigo and purple has been tattooed around her left eye, framing it.
Her form is lean and wiry, well muscled.

Male Elves

Short Description: the tattooed dreadlocked elf

Description:
Spiky dreadlocks running in a thin, straight line from his forehead to the nape
of his neck cover this large, muscular elf's head.  His skull is shaven on 
either side of the strip of dreadlocks, and the skin there is tattooed in 
intricate black patterns. A crooked nose, apparently oft-broken, is perched 
above thin lips, which conceal a mouthful of crooked and broken teeth. Scars 
cover both of his cheeks, forming a glossy mass of tissue too patterned to be 
accidental.

Short Description: the portly, topknotted elf

Description:
Large almond shaped, brown eyes gaze out of the round, fleshy face of this elf.
Unusually portly for his race, his body is defined more by curves than sharp 
angles. In fact, he would be considered downright fat by many. A single braided
topknot hangs from a shiny head, which is otherwise completely bald. His fleshy
cheeks are covered with blue tattoos, which outline glossy patterns of scar 
tissue, the scars far too systematic and patterned to be accidental. His hands 
are also covered in the same repetitious blue designs of ink encircling scar 
tissue.

Short Description: the spiral-branded elf

Description:
The bald head of this elf is puckered with a mass of glossy black scar tissue 
that shines brightly in the light against the deep black hue of his skin.  The 
scar tissue forms in a spiral moving outward from the center of his forehead, 
bisecting his right eye before swirling towards the crown of his head, then 
swooping down in front of his left ear and moving across his nose and lips, 
before circling again behind his head, until the spiraling line of tissue 
swings back to rest at the center of his throat. In between the raised welts of
the spiral, startling white tattoos of various runes and sigils gleam against 
the elf's ebon skin. A beefy neck slopes downward to a muscular frame, showing 
very little of the typical elven lankiness, and none of the traditional height 
of elves.

Half-Elves

Female half-elves:

Short Description: the massive, sun-bronzed female half-elf

Description:
This muscular half-elven woman has dark, sun-bronzed skin that shines brightly 
in the light.  Her body is massive, almost comparable to a mul of the same 
gender.  She has thick legs that show obvious lower body power and endurance, 
the large muscles bulging beneath her skin.  Across her stomach are muscles 
sprouting from everywhere, rippling with the slightest movement.  Enormous 
chest muscles span her torso, dwarfing the considerable muscle in her shoulders, 
which hold bulky, muscular arms. She has a thick bull-neck that supports a face
that may have once been beautiful, but is now masculine and scarred. She has 
thin, cracked lips, tiny scars surrounding them in appearance of chaos. She has
a thin, crooked nose, bumps showing from the many breaks. The splendor of her 
light blue eyes is dampened by the rugged look of her face, particularly the 
long scar running from the corner of her eye down her cheek. Above her eyes is 
the beginning of her coppery hair, which has been pulled back tightly into a 
bun.

Male Half-Elves

Short Description: the lanky, eerie-eyed half-elf

Description:
The half-elf before you is thin and lanky, with corded muscle visible on his 
body.  His slim, muscular limbs are long, with his arms a little lengthy 
compared to the rest of his body. His narrow shoulders rest atop a thin chest 
that looks almost emaciated, ribs protruding slightly beneath the skin. He has 
a blockish face, with a square jaw and a large chin, with a dimple in the 
center of it. Above this are his lips, which never seem to close all the way, 
keeping his yellowish front teeth visible. He has a hooked nose, which almost 
seems to bend enough to touch his mouth. He has two eyes with no pupils, which 
gives his gaze an eerie quality. Starting above his right eye, a scar runs 
downward to the edge of his eye socket to stop. It starts again on the other 
side, then curls up to meet his nostril, which flares slightly as he breathes. 
He has black hair, which hangs unkempt, curling behind his sharply pointed ears.

Dwarves

Female Dwarves

Short Description: the blood-tattooed dwarven woman

Description:
Stalwart in every aspect, this powerfully-built dwarven woman would look like a
man of her kind if not for her sizable breasts.  Even so, the impression one 
gets is that even these are formed from rock-solid muscle rather than anything 
else. Her skin is a lightly-tanned brown, and is tattooed in such a way that 
most, or perhaps all, of her blood vessels are highlighted in a dark red.  This
gives her a bizarre appearance; from far away, she looks as if she wears a net 
of some kind, and close up, it is as if her skin is made from irregular scales.
Her gleaming eyes are dark brown, and look out sternly from her broad, rugged 
face.

Male Dwarves

Short Descrription: the blockish, brown-eyed dwarf

Description:
This blockish form has two short, muscular legs that support a massive body 
that ripples menacingly with muscle. This body holds up broad, well-defined 
shoulders that sport bulky arms with enormous muscles poking from beneath the 
darkly tanned skin. His hairless head contains two dark brown eyes that glitter
ominously. He has a large, bulbous nose that is crooked from the obvious breaks
its sustained, which rests above lips that have been marred from past fist 
fights. He has a square jaw that rests close to his thick neck. Atop his 
scarred head, there is a vague tattoo of a skull.
