Boukh are a race of short goat people who usually live in the mountains, they tend to live alone or in small communities.


Boukh are very varied in personality but have a few trends, they are usually calm and collected outside of combat but tend to be jumpy and unprepared when a fight break out. They also tend to be fiercely proud and territorial, boukh warriors are infamous for their aggressiveness and restlessness. Still boukh tend to be wise as well, capable of collected thoughts and have great observational skills. Young boukh travelers are curious and friendly while older members of the race tend to be sour and ill-mannered.

Physical Description[edit]

Standing at barely over 3 feet tall, boukh are not very impressive physically. They are typically entirely covered in a short coat of white hair, have hooved foot and have a goat head. Despite being small they are pretty damn fast and their well developed horns are surprisingly stronger than they look.


Boukh tend to be isolationist but they don't hate anyone in particular, they are friendly with mountain goats which they see as animalistic cousin and spiritual guides. Sadly mountain goat do not seem to return the favor, often causing some dim-witted boukhs to get rammed off a cliff by a pissed off mountain goat.


Boukh tend to gravitate toward the neutral spectrum of alignment.


Boukh typically like to settle in mountainous regions.


Boukh prefer to follow monastic ideals and local deities instead of a greater religion. Since they tend to follow philosophies they typically make good cleric.


Boukh speak common and their own language, cleverly named boukh.


Boukh typically name their children in the boukh language, name are usually composite and simple sounding.

Male: Bha-Rei, Oro-Ra, Behk-Ol, Benh-Ha

There no difference between males and female name in the boukh language.
