Tortle Variant[edit]

A race of Tortle that chose the underground as home since the beginning of times. After living in the underground for so long, they acquired the ability to see very well in dark spaces. Their skin has became grey like the rock. Their shell became like rock, growing a rock-like figure and texture. Their eyes are crystal blue or bright grey like the minerals found deep underground. They are very recluse and lonely creatures, making hard for them to form a proper society, but they still help each other when they can, often exchanging fish or other edible things that are found on their habitat. Because of their choice of home, they have became very resistant to cold. Living underground, the Rock Shell Tortles usually encounter elementals that chose to live beneath the surface, because of this, they have learned the languages of one another.
