A nearly extinct race of Ascyria, being powerful sorcerers these beings are known to change their gender every full moon.


Lunars are strange creatures coming from the moon. They are peaceful wanderers using shapechanging abilities to keep their true nature a secret.


Lunars are extremely calm, patient and peaceful. They often cross the line toward apathy. Lunars believe themselves to be higher beings of existence. However, this arrogance isn't usually shown outside evil lunars. Lunars tend to be naive and trustful, since they rarely lie. Lunars are deeply spiritual and seek power through spirituality and patience.

Physical Description[edit]

Lunars are fair and very beautiful. They have light, nearly white, glowing skin and white hair (but are often bald) with silver eyes. They have very long arms and legs, making them look alien-like. Otherwise, lunars share the same height, weight and traits as human. Lunars, while appearing feminine, are actually genderless.

Note: Lunars are mysteriously able to produce offspring with members of other races. Giving birth to half-lunars. They are only able to impregnate females by magic. A Lunar can produce a child only once every century.


Lunar tend to avoid other races. They don't get along very well with any.


Lunar gravitate toward a lawful alignment. They are honorable and their behavior favors self-control and harmony. They don't gravitate toward good or evil.


Lunar have no land. They simply wander. Rarely a lunar may settle in a community.


Lunar worship Luna, their home (like druidism). But after its near destruction their is a hole in their religion. They still worship the spirit of their ancestors.


Lunars speak Lunar, a fluid yet harsh language with very very long words.


Lunars give themselves very long names. They don't have any secondary name nor family name.

Example of Name: Therramulsa, Minastodonerie, Zalsmalum
