2.8 Snakefolk

The snakefolk inhabit the tangled depths of the Farshore forests, although they have been seen on occasion farther south. They are solitary, and incredibly fierce. For many years they have been a thorn in the side of the Nagadian Empire, who seeks time and time again to exterminate them.

Snakefolk resemble merpeople in that their top half is human. Their bottom half is, however, snake, which gave them their name. Instead of hair, the snakefolk have thin grass snakes sprouting from their scalps. The bite of a snakeman or snakemaid is poisonous. Their reflexes are whip-fast and they are very powerful, despite how the may appear. Truly snake-like, they move with amazing speed in battle. They often carry a pair of swords, but also other weapons.
