Osnlil Species in Binaka | World Anvil


A race of small, mousy-looking humanoids, the Osnlil are widely renowned as neutral advisors and promulgators of knowledge. While often publicly visible, Osnlil are generally quite secretive. Few know much about the race as a whole, including their language and the location their native homeland. They are frequently known to associate with and/or advocate for shifters. This divisive position doesn't seem to affect their perceived value as counselors.   Osnlil had their origin in the Third Age. They were originally derived from kinkajou, a raccoon-related rainforest mammal. They had human and shifter DNA mixed in. The original intent was as a covert operative that specialized in stealth and accessing otherwise inaccessible areas.   In the Fourth Age, 85% of Osnlil actively use magic:
  • 50% have movement abilities in the form of blink ability.
  • 10% have dimensional abilities in the form of access to pocket dimensions.
  • 10% have influence abilities, with 90% of these having telepathy and 10% having invisibility.
  • 20% have protection abilities, always some sort of anti-damage.
  • 2% have prescience, with all prescient abilities.
