Return of the Hydra: prologue
Tribe of the Rhino
The members of the AdemorranTribe of the Rhino are one or two heads taller than most humans. Even the women are over 6 feet tall on the average. Its said that some of them can even grow bigger when close to death, an ability somehow related to Duergar.
The Great Ones believe it is their duty to grow and reach the head of the food chain. And when death comes and the Devourer will swallow them as he swallows all beings in the end, maybe he will not be able to swallow the greatest and strongest of their warriors, thus granting them eternal life…
Being overly confident and consisting mainly of barbarians, their tactics seldom are more complicated than a head-on charge. Many of them favour tactics like sunder, overrun, or trip.
They believe attack is the best defence and fight with reckless abandon, almost never healing themselves until the battle is over. In their opinion, this even more encourages natural selection, leaving only the strongest ones.
Their Spellcasters specialize in area evocation spells to decimate the weak ones quickly. The warlocks also try to give their strongest warriors an extra boost at the start of the battle. Fire is their favoured element, representing their burning hate and rage. Even the warlocks are not afraid of physical combat, showing just a little bit more cunning than their followers. They have no priests or druids, and also very few archers. Just lots and lots of barbarians, specializing in charging, ‘midgetslaying’, or both.
The ‘Gran yo’ hate the Twins and are perpetually at war with them.
The Tribe of the Rhino worships the Red Hydra Head.
