Athos: The Return
Race Relations in Athos
A chosen race of Athos. Treated with the utmost respect by all other races, clearly the most powerful of the races. A PC in this tier will be expected to be civilized, and most likely be expected to have some sort of racism against Gnomes and lower races.
Athosian slave races. Those who are Gnomes or their descendants. Treated poorly, but still above the lesser tiers. A PC in this tier should expect to be treated like dirt, and either be an escaped slave or one employed by a Tier 1 race.
Monster-like creatures. Sometimes seen in cities and occasionally hired for strange tasks. A viewing of one of these races would be a strange, uncommon occurrence. A PC in this tier should have a backstory explaining why they are accepted in society, or have a method of dealing with this strange relationship.
-Can easily transform into a Tier 1 form (or any tier for that matter). Tend to stay in Tier 1.
-Off-human race but treated at lower tier due to corruption of their ancestry. From Thrashkar.
-Can easily transform to Tier 1 form but very proud to stay in animal form and prefer to be in their natural form.
-Very rare, first built in the year 5500 of the Second Age on Grashnak.
A monster. Possible to be reasoned with, but usually not allowed to dwell in society. A PC with a Tier 4 race should expect constant threats and talking down to.
-Easily blend in at Tier 1. Vampire-like race.
-Known by the scholar class only. Written of in ancient texts of Athos.
-Very strange, more likely able to convince others to accept them. A planar traveler from an unknown realm.
-From the ‘Realm of Dreams’, a planar traveler. Most like the only of their race on this plane, and very strange to see.
-Depending on what your originally race was, changes between Tier 1 and Tier 4 based on your current level of decay.
-Lessens from Tier 1 as the longer they have been in this state.
-A planar traveler.
-Viewed as monsters, devil creatures. Contracted servants to the Lords of The Realm Below
