Mashi Horansi, the Night Stalkers
Lone, solitary, sleek, and black, the Mashi Horansi stalk the small
jungles of Mutanda with great cunning. They are the only species
of Horansi that remains nocturnal like their ancestors, and thus
have a great advantage over the other Horansi races. They are very
quiet and are rarely, if ever, seen by any but the most skilled
of scouts and hunters. They mate once for life and the males raise
the young. Because of their beauty, stealth, and rarity, their skins
are the most prized of all Horansi.
Mashi Horansi make use of technology when it is convenient, but
are still uncomfortable with many aspects of it. The Mashi who have
moved to Justa have adapted well, discovering a natural aptitude
for many skills.
Solitary, superstitious and nocturnal, Mashi Horansi are unpredictable.
They are the prime target of poachers on Mutanda and accept this
with a mixture of resignation and pride. A Mashi feels that if he
must be the target of hunters, let him take a few with him.
Attribute Dice: 12D
Keen Senses: Mashi Horansi are used to nighttime activity and rely
more on their senses of smell, hearing, taste and touch than sight.
They suffer no Perception penalties in darkness.
Sneak Bonus: At the time of character creation only, Mashi Horansi
receive 2D for every ID in skill dice they place in sneak; they
may still only place a maximum of 2D in sneak (2D in beginning skill
dice would get them 4D in sneak).
Nocturnal: Mashi Horansi are nocturnal. While they gain no special
advantages as a race, their life-long experience with night-time
conditions gives them the special abilities noted above.
Size: 1.5-2 meters tall
