Agroon (Dragonstar)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Agroons are Planetouched who have been affected by the chaotic planes, partticularily Ysgard and Pandemonium, and who carry the very essence of chaos within themselves. They are free and powerful people, with an everlasting sense of wonder and adventure.

Personality: Agroons value freedom and liberty over all other concerns - and are more than ready to fight to maintain them. Brave to a fault and noble of bearing, Agroons often become champions of odd causes or leaders among rebels.

Physical Description: Agroons appear as large, muscular humans, often with a mane of hair. They often seem unkept or untidy. Males like full beards. Their skin tends to be on the tanned side, and slightly more saturated in hue than is normal for humans.

Relations: Agroons do not really relate to races and groups, they relate to individuals. It does not matter to them if you are an orc or an elf, only of your dealings are free and fair. This attitude annoys the clannish races - dwarfs and goblins in particular. Orcs, humans and halflings are generally awed by agroons, while elves and gnomes often find them overbearing.

Alignment: It is rare to find an agroon who is not chaotic - in fact it might be impossible. Good and evil is not important to them, though their sense of sportsmanship is strong.

Agroon Lands: Agroons rarely hold their own lands. In the wake of a chaos incursion, so many agroons may be concentrated in one area that they become politically dominant, but such unions rarely last long, both because the Dragon Empire do not favor such enclaves, and because Agroons generally cannot agree on much of anything.

Religion: Agroons honor The Stormlord above all other deitypes, though The Mother, The Trickster and The Destroyer are also held in high regard.

Language: Agroons speak Common. There is no universal language of chaotic outsiders.

Names: Agroons follow the naming conventions of whatever culture is near, usually adding some epithet, such as "the strong" or "the handsome" to their names.

Adventurers: Agroons are consummate adventurers, and pursue danger and challenge for the thrill. Other adventurers are not always happy to bring Agroons along, as their recklessness and directness can cause trouble.
