Descendents from primates, Pangali are animalistic creatures with ape-like complexion.


Possessing of a closely knit familial society, pangali function pretty much like advanced species of Homonidae. They have a powerful sense of morality and community that sees them and their loved ones through any challenges they face. They are reasonably benevolent and wise in their dealings, and tend to attempt coexisting with other races under the modicum of live and let live; a lessen that many more advanced societies have already forgotten.

Physical Description[edit]

Pangali (single form; pangal) look very much like slightly further-anthropomorphized common chimpanzees, although sporting a slightly thicker coat of dark fur that covers their entire bodies, save for their hands, feet and face. Males are substantially larger than their female counterparts and can get up to about five and a half feet, weighing in at an average of about 135 pounds. Pangali can walk on two limbs for periods of time, but often prefer to walk on their feet and the knuckles of their hands. Even when they walk upright, they have a hunched posture. Pangali are physically quite a lot more powerful than their human counterparts.


Pangali do not tend to interact very much with other races, as they are often living in wild areas impermissible to those with higher norms of society. Although generally willing to be hospitable, it does not take much abuse for a cultural or verbal misunderstanding to create distrust. The feeling is often mutual. Being reasonably primitive as a fledgling race of sentient primates, their still developing intelligence is still sub-par and can cause them to be looked down upon. In many cases, pangali are considered as mere animals, and their territories trespassed upon without consideration otherwise. This behavior easily breeds distrust, but despite this, pangali aggression in any form other than for self-defense is reasonably rare. When threatened, they use anything they can get their hands on in their defense, and some of them are known to employ manufactured weapons instead of their powerful slam attacks.


Palngali are often good (any).


They inhabit tropical areas, jungles and forests.


Still a young race, pangali religion is mostly limited to a mix of ancestral worship and reverence for the Earth Mother, who can grant any two of the following domains to potential clerics; Animal, Earth, Plant and Strength.




Pangali often give their young names that coincide with some occurrence that happened during the birth. Such names are always in Pangali tongue, certain examples of which are the equivalents of 'morning light' (if the sun was on the rise) or 'angry skies' (if the birth occurred during a lightning storm).
