       They are a small carnivarous race that inhabit the Ferrath Isles. They are semi-intelligent, able to pass on simple information with a series of clicking and shrieking noises they can create with their tongue and throats.
       They are 1.5 peds high, but usually hunch, so they appear to be only 1. Their bodies are covered in scales of light blue, dark brown, or green, with a small section of smooth, slimy skin on their chest and stomach. They have long narrowed fingers and toes to help grip trees and other such things, as well as retractable claws approximately 3/4s of a palmspan for defense and hunting. Their heads are small and flat, with large mouths full of razor sharp teeth, and startling green eyes that allow them to see in the dark.
Special Abilities
       The Rhyshan have the ability to communicate with a simple series of clicks and shrieking noises, produced respectively by their tonuges and throats. This is a very useful ability when it comes to hunting and attacking another creature that has invaded their territory.
       Rhyshan live in tribes of approximately 8-12 Rhyshan. They set up a series of nests in trees grouped together, and change territory every fews years. They will fiercely defend their homes, even if it costs them their lives, so they are often transplanted to serve as guardians.
       They inhabit the forests of the east and west islands in the Ferrath chain, and a few tribes are even known to exist in the mountains of the north island. A normal tribe consists of 4 Males to serve as hunters and guardians for the nests, 2 females for mating, and 3 children, which are cared by for the females. Rhyshan children are completely dependant on their parents for the first year of their life, as their eyes are cemented shut until then, until they grow they spend all their time in the nest, being fed and groomed by the parents. When enough children in a tribe have grown into adults, they are sent off to find their own way of life. A female is usually the mate for 2-3 males, and give birth numerous times in their lives. They are responsible for keeping the nests in decent condition, and feeding the children. Males hunting in groups of 3-4, and one is always present at the nest to defend the females and children. The strongest of the males is usually the leader in of the tribe; when he dies, the rest with fight for the right to become the leader.
       The Rhyshan diet usually consists of meat harvested from the animals they hunt, some plants and roots that they are able to dig up from trees, and sometimes fish when they are close enough to water. If a Rhyshan goes long enough without eating meat, it will go blind because it does not get the proteins needed to maintain it's eye sight.
       Females produce eggs every 2 years, and when she does a scent is released from her skin that attracts males. She may have intercourse with anywhere from 2-3 males, and birth at least 2 children. For at least 2 months prior to giving birth, the female is rendered immobile because the nutrients in her body are spent keeping the baby healthy. The mother spends 3 weeks after birth recovering from this.
       The Rhyshan are said to have been created by a wizard in the War of the Chosen as an attempt to create a breed of assassin beasts, but they killed their master and escaped to the Crimson Isles, where they developed into the semi-culture that are now today.

He informs me that because the Rinath information has not been posted on the site, he is taking all he has created and using it in his own novels.

As for the Galons, know clue about origin and stuff, I`m having trouble for this with them, any suggestions welcome ^^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

My idea is simple, Cor descends upon the Isle of the Ages(Isles of the Ancients, I like Ages better), and The three remaining ancients send the Rhyshan through the void, they make it through and are badly injured, and the Brownies decide to help them cross the deserts. When they reach the edge of the desert, about 10 Brownies decide to go with the Rhyshan for good. (If you want more details, I need time to think ^^;;;;;;;;

Is it okay if I use the Brownie history to write how they help the Rhyshan, then send it to you for approval?

9  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: The Rhyshan on: 07 February 2001, 21:08:00
OK! So I cant stay away from the site for a long time, well, thats a good thing, right? I am trying to make a 1st Version for the Rhyshan Language, and..this is kinda my first time attempting a language, I could use a bit of help.....if anyone can spare it. ^^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

10  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: The Rhyshan on: 07 February 2001, 15:58:00
Once again I am breaking my silence, I hate to be picky bout the map(either you misread it, or I left a few things out, and If I did, then I apolofize), but the river is supposed to be "Linfalas River"(the one on the east isle and the mountains on the east Isle are supposed to be the 3 spires

11  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: The Rhyshan on: 06 February 2001, 17:38:00
I am going to be printing out all of the Santharian history, then I will work on the history of the Rhyshan, Galons, and the Ancients, in other words, I wont be posting for a while. :(  

12  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: Idea(I get 2 many!) on: 29 January 2001, 16:24:00
The Ancients that died were killed by a shadow, something they could not see, it snuck up on the from behind and killed the four, the other three tried to kill it, but they couldn`t, so they grabbed the others(not knowing they were dead), and ran. They were not created, they were just, "there" at that beginning. They are guarding the Isles because they are linked with the main world by magic, if they are destroyed, the link will be broken, and the real world will be destroyed as well. They were High Elves, the former guardians of the Isles, they were killed by the same creature that attacked the Ancients, the creature was sent by Cor(or what ever, I dont know the symbol thingies on the keyboard by heart) to destroy the Isles guardians so he could attack the Isle.

13  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: Idea(I get 2 many!) on: 28 January 2001, 11:18:00
Well....OK, I`ll let some of the Ancients ideas leak out. just enough so I can get the Isles description in full. The Ancients are seven beings created long ago to guard the Isles of the Ancients, a realm floating in it`s own plain of existance, only reachable through the Ethernal Void. Seven were created, but only 3 of them made it through the passage of the void alive. The ones that survived.....Rahl, Kazad, and Druin buried the others on the isles. They began construction of the Halls of Ancients, and then constructed a tower over the other bodies, to protect them. Rahl begin searching the rest of the Isles, before they had gotten there, the inhabitants had been killed. And So he gave birth to a new Race, the Rhyshan...(Actually position later, I cant find the map !!><!!)

14  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Idea(I get 2 many!) on: 27 January 2001, 20:03:00
Well, I have been getting this idea...of a series of connect islands floating in the skies of a realm reached through the Ethrenal Void, the Isles of the Ancients(I`m not releasing info on this idea til I`m done) If you`re interested in seeing the sketch just say so

15  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: The Rhyshan on: 26 January 2001, 16:42:00
They would be like.....the teachers, kinda of educating the Rhyshan about the world.(Since they did walk in through the void) Otherwise I dont know ^^;, any of your ideas are welcome though!^^;;;;;;;;
