Shiga, Fox-folk[edit]


The Shiga are a naturally rebellious species, impatient and often whimsical. They hold a great loyalty for their companions, and a fevered grudge for their enemies.

Physical Description[edit]

The Shiga vary in relative size, but obviously all have a fur coat, a tail, and an angular snout. Coat patterns might vary but never stray too far from their original fox counter-part.


Some individuals might hold an unsolicited disdain for the Fox-folk, for no other reason than they being a Fox-folk. This is what me and the boys used to call racism back in the day.


The Shiga are inherently chaotic.


As do most Fox-folk races, the Shiga derive much from Japanese culture, settling in a similar eastern respective.


Most Shiga hold an almost Gaelic sense of superstition, believing in nothing more than nature itself. This does not make up all of the Shiga however as a small portion worships the greater known deities like Olidammara.


The Shiga begin the game with Common and Sylvan. +1 bonus language if Intelligence score is above 11. (And maybe Japanese if your DM is doing an eastern campaign, idk man, its your life my guy.)


The Shiga Fox-folk are given a both a Japanese first and last name, but are made to choose an easily pronounceable nick-name, or title, at the age of 16, for travelling to foreign lands.
