Species you cannot make a character for.
- Genies - Alternatively also called Djinn, powerful spirits that control wind and are capable of altering reality. A fiendish race that was long ago defeated and sealed in lamps, scattered around the world and doomed to become the wish-granting slaves of whoever holds them. While sounding useful, most of these lamps have been lost in time or destroyed as many feared their power, and are mostly believed to be nothing more but a myth. If one should be encountered, chances of escaping alive are little. It’s better to talk your way out than combat against a being who can turn you into a duck.
