    Catlings are bipedal felines the size of smallchildren. They are the result of a magical ac-cident which transformed the feline familiars of a group of wizards engaged in a ritual. Brightand quick, catlings retain many of the personal-ity traits of their four-footed forebears, including

    mercurial affections, an independent streak, alove for hunting and a seemingly inexhaustiblesupply of good luck. Their natural claws andteeth make them dangerous.

Their beautiful cities are grown from coral reefs and surrounded by waving gardensof exotic sea-life.

    Simians are a race of intelligent primates whoreside deep within warm forests. They havea strong tribal culture that relies primarily onoral history, with their tales and ways encodedin chants and songs. Though smaller than hu-

    mans, simians are incredibly nimble and quitestrong, able to move through the dense forestsby swinging from vines and branches and

    make use of their dexterous tails as additionallimbs. Simians are also very curious about any-thing new, often dropping everything to inves-tigate some mystery.

    Sorcerors are members of an ancient bloodlineof mages who intermingled with eldritch non-human entities to gain some of their power. Atfirst glance sorcerors appear human, but theyare all marked in subtle ways -- odd hair col-ors, strange eyes, witch marks, fangs and smalltails are just some of the many possible tellingsigns -- that make others uneasy and fearfularound them. Their inate talent for chanellingraw magical force makes them both useful anddangerous to adventuring groups.
