Kerki'n are generally very aloof, and awkward, especially with other humanoids. They stick to their own kind, and distrust those not of the forest, often causing trouble where they can.

Physical Description[edit]

Kerki’n average 6 feet tall and usually weigh around 220 pounds. A Kerki’n has a goat-like head with slightly curled horns; they have a lean yet muscular body and very lanky arms, almost like an ape. Their feet resemble those of a goats hooves and their eyes are usually yellow or amber colored and their hair is a reddish brown.


Kerki'n have little affinity for other races, tending to trust only other Kerki'n. Those native to the forest, Kerki'n will oft play tricks on, but are not generally hostile.


Being forest dwellers, Kerki’n tend towards chaotic alignments, usually chaotic neutral.


Kerki’n live in the forests that cover the foothills of the eastern mountains. Normally, Kerki’n live in small tribes near a river or stream, sheltering in dug-out houses with sod roofs on which their goats graze.


Kerki’n do not see the need for religion, but when one does, he usually worships Obad-hai or another deity of nature.


Kerki'n speak their own language of the same name as well as Common.
