Pé Chói (The Listeners)In the western forests of Tsolyanu live the Pé Chói, beautiful insectoids with considerable magical talents. These six-limbed beings are 6’ to 7’ tall, they have two legs and four arms, and they are capable of using all four arms at once. They have fan-shaped external ears and a long jaw. They easily join human society, rising nearly as high as humans within the bureaucratic hierarchies. Pé Chói seek revenge on those who kill their kind without provocation.
Pé Chói characters start with ST 8 DX 10 IQ 8 and 8 extra points. They have an MA of 10. Pé Chói chitin stops two hits, and they also make armor and weapons suited to their unique anatomy. Their lower set of arms are at -2 DX, and when attacking with more than two arms, all attacks are at -4 DX.
All Pé Chói can learn spells and talents at normal cost. The race’s excellent hearing and sight gives them natural Alertness. They have a psychic connection to members of their own race, which allows them to detect the death of one of their own within a 3 mile radius. Beyond that, they have an innate awareness of all living things, allowing them to perceive the presence of lifeforms within a range of 2 yards (same effects as Detect Life spell, except Pe Choi can tell the difference between animal and plant life).
