Traits

Riverworn run the gambit of size, shape, and color, but always with eyes swirling with the races they are a part of and hair likewise a burst of shades.

The traits and skills are different for every Riverworn, some so fully in-tune with a certain race that beyond their hair, none could tell the difference. Others are so fully mixed that no notable skills beyond a ‘normal’ human experience ever surfaces. For the most part, Riverworn are somewhere between: a shine of luck, a splash of wit, or a touch of love’s embrace.

History

Being a Riverworn is a lottery-like mutation, eligible only to those born with at least (3) of the (8) races in their ancestral makeup. Even then, there’s no guarantee, the telltale sign being the distinct “swirling irises.” Nonetheless, it is a fairly common occurrence found in every port and call. With so many different backgrounds, pinning them down into a specific history, or even group, is impossible—Rixa being the exception. A fully Riverworn city that has been at almost constant war or dispute with one nation or another . . . forever.
