Whether it be the more common Blackmane from the south to the prideful and large Firemanes from the Midwest who are only eclipsed in ferocity by the Frostmanes in the far North.   In the end the Ajantie are largely a respected race, Held in high regard and often known to be individuals of their word yet even so their are many who see them as little more than intimidating beast that are just waiting for the next war to arrive.     Racial Traits     Ability Score Increase: Your Strength score increases by 2.   Darkvision:   Age: Ajantie consider themselves adults at age 33.

  Firemane: Where Frostclaw Ajantie are zealous, firemane Ajantie are more measured, and they tend to look before they leap. This gives them a tendency towards positions of leadership, such as military officers and political advisers.

  Blackmane: tough, sly, and most of all adaptable. These Ajantie never forget a debt and they Never forgive. Being true residents of Greybogs the Blackmanes are much more adaptable than normal Ajantie learning to survive and thrive anyway they can. This by no means means they are no less Honorable than other Ajantie, just their loyalties are a little more. . . lax. Blackmanes hold lying as a disgrace of their feline tongues many would believe this to be a hindrance but many Blackmanes get what they want all while keeping their cards close to their chests.   Ability Score increase: Your dexterity score increase by 1     Leonin Adaptability: No Blackmane falls for the same trick twice. You have advantage on any spell, trap, or martial saving throw forced upon if you have experienced the effect before from a non-ally creature.
