Moose-headed creatures from the frozen north, they are well known for their strength, endurance, and politeness. They are the epitome of the gentle giant.


The moosu may look potentially intimidating with their size and wide horns, but they are gentle giants at heart. Their home culture is one of understanding and helpfulness as they believe the greatest strength one has isn't the strength of arms, but the strength of numbers. It also helps them compensate for their weaknesses, as they can be a bit scatterbrained at times.

Physical Description[edit]

The moosu are deceptively strong. They are humanoid creatures with generally tall frames, large feet, and covered in a layer of brown fur with a pronounced moose-like snout and wide antlers. Due to their antlers their necks are extremely strong. It also makes them clumsy and prone to getting stuck in doorways. Moosu sometimes have thicker more human-like hair on top, but many are "bald" with only their base fur covering their heads.


The moosu have generally found friendly, or at least non-hostile, relations with most that they meet. When encountering a foe they cannot diplomacy into submission, they often retreat and set up a potent defensive wall. They hold this position as their allies weaken them while they are distracted.


Moosu are generally neutral good, but as any race they do vary.


Moosu live in the frozen northern plains, forests, and mountains.


Moosu can adopt any number of religions but seem to have a base in druidic nature deities, especially those in bounty, harvest, and celebration.


Moosu speak Common and Sylvan.


Moosu have long since adopted names of the races around them, resulting in very human-like names.
