Amizak

Goblins

The northwestern reaches of Manteia host a unique culture called the Amizak, which is closely related to the Nuitach.

Basic Information

Anatomy

Amizak people are small, limber, and compact; well-adapted for high-altitude activity. They have smaller ears than their Firbolg ancestors, but have adapted significantly increased lung capacity.

Ecology and Habitats

The Amizak people build their settlements high in the mountains and deep in hidden valleys.

Additional Information

Geographic Origin and Distribution

The Amizak are native to the northwestern highlands of Manteia, but Amizak also bleed over into the far northeast of Vara.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Amizak retain the sensitive ears, eyes, and noses of their ancestors, the Firbolgs. They are quite good at detecting faint scents and have excellent low-light vision.

Civilization and Culture

Culture and Cultural Heritage

Due to the striking commonality of gold in northwestern Manteia, Amizak civilization typically uses gold rather than iron or copper as a construction material in most objects and structures.

Common Customs, Traditions and Rituals

Manteian Amizak culture is known for ritual sacrifice in its religious traditions, though the commonality of this tradition has declined significantly in the modern era. Varan Amizak do not follow this custom.

Author's Notes

The Amizak culture is partially based on the Inca, Nazca, and other native peoples of the Andes.
