The Venschian

The Venschian are an amoral, hardy, humanoid race from a far away, discontinuous universe, the venschian are masters of constructs and worshippers of a single god and his minions: B’tar .

Though similar to humans, physically, they are more stocky and a little shorter. They are sturdy, have square features and solid jaws, dark hair and slightly angled, large eyes. Their ears are similar to humans.

Their focus on their worship to B’tar and his teachings gives them a great strength of will and a strong sense of law. Whilst many have developed simple prayers from their racial Channel Divinity power, on this plane their powers are severely curtailed. What isn’t hampered is their great use of constructs to defend themselves, to use as disposable cohorts in battle, and even for transport.

The Venschian are arrogant, brutal and domineering. Their natural though is that they rule the world. Their following of B’tar, coupled with their Blessed of B’tar ability enforces and encourages this thinking. There biggest weakness, though, is hatred for water and the sea. Though they are predominantly clerics and users of divine power, on the plane of the Greater Sea their powers are curtailed and they will have to start again. They are most likely to take up service to Bane, the god of war and conqeust, and could well ally themselves to Gruumsh, the lord of destruction.
