Could you be more precise about this minor god? Is it a religion of monotheism? I recommend that you make a Compendium entry for the beliefs of the Rhyshan, which I then can put on the site. It would also be interesting to know how the religion of the Rhyshan developed and how the Rhyshan settled on the island.

However, Santharian humans have 12 gods which is an unchangeable number. The elves also believe in 2 High Gods dedicated to light and Darkness. It is also possible that the Rhyshan pick one of these gods and adore them as the one and only (and naming him/her different), of course having some other myth associated to it.

The Rhyshan never really settled in the Isles, they just woke up in the darkness of the caves, surrounded by bats, they thought the bats had saved them from a danger they could not remember, and they began to began to believe in a bat like god, which they named Diablos.

Diablos....sounds familiar, somehow.
Different gods for the different races already has two precedents, with the Gnomes and with the Brownies. All you need to do is describe it fully. I usually include a sentance as to why the elven/human gods are irrevant to them.

Well, I guess it's ok that the Rhyshan have a myth sounding like the one you described. Of course the elven myth in the "Cárpa'dosía" differs. They deduce all from the Mother of All, the Tree of Life and are convinced that the races sprang from the Rain of Life, spreading in all directions etc. Maybe the Rhyshan tribe is mentioned in the "Cárpa'dosía" somewhere with a bit of another story, but only hinting how the Rhyshan could have settled there. Well, myths always have more than one side.

Concerning the name "Diablos": I fear there are too much games, cults, pizzas (well, there's at least a "Diabolo" version as I can remember) out there, which is why I recommend to use another name for the god, something completely unique. - That possible?

P.S. I'd still need some Team information from you to put it on the site, RhyshanLord!

I`m starting to hate the cloak Idea. Instead I got a new idea, shorter, bout 4 feet tall average, sort of slimey skin, very skinny, and a rounded head, kinda sticking out of the back of the head(still keeping the no feet idea, no clue why). So, everyone tell me what you think bout the idea.

No problem with the another Rhyshan concept, but still can't figure out exactly what it means to see someone with "a rounded head, kinda sticking out of the back of the head" - what's in fact sticking out of the back of the head? The head? *grin* Maybe a bit precision here would be fine...

And I can only agree with Greybark: If people know that you are at home somewhere in the US, like Terry Brooks and love to play Diablo that would suffice I guess:)

What I meant is, a ball shaped head, kinda of smashed down from the top, also long(I cant really think of a way to describe what I meant by sticking out, if you have seen the Movie "Alien", kinda like that, but not that long)

Ah, ok, I see. Granted. But without Sigourney Weaver this time, I guess...

Races are multiplying! :)
I like, but needs more detail. Example: Why no feet?

I`ve got 2 ideas for the origin of the Rhyshan, and I thought I`d let the other members decide which one I should use...
1)They wandered in from the Etherial Void, and fled to the Crimson Isles, trying to escape the peoples of the world as they attacked them in fear.
2)They were bred by a mage during the War of the Chosen, then rebelled, killing their master. The one Kharda the Great lead them to the Crimson Isles, were he was crowned their king.
Well, I`ll let you guys take it from here.

My head is just filled with too many dang ideas--.

  The Galons are a race of giant people, a Galon`s average height is 12 feet. They live deep in forest, living mostly on a diet of tree roots leaves(they also use plants to make clothes). They are extremely skilled with healing magic and spears. The Galons never leave the forests they live in unless something happens that threaghtens them. They are friendly with elves. Most of their population is male, so it is common for a woman to bear the child of more than one man.

This is all I know so far,

Rhyshan Lord(let me know if I should just scrap it)
