In the World of Sulerin there are more civilized races than merely elves, dwarves, humans, gnomes, and halflings. There are several other races which are available for use as player characters. Further, the traditional elven and dwarven population is scattered into several distinct races, each possessing their own unique racial traits. More information is available for each of these races in Sulerin's online Creature Compendium. Here then are the details you need before you can begin to create your persona and travel through-out the world.
The spartan Drakher (drah care) are a subterranean race of elves. They are a pale race with white hair, though they frequently make use of dyes. Drakher are also quite thin and significantly shorter than the other elfin races, this is a practical adaption to the restricted spaces of the underworld. Since Drakher have difficulty seeing distances clearly when exposed to bright light, they rarely leave from underground to dwell on the surface for a prolonged period; but few can match their superior vision underground.
The Galiadre (Gah lee aah dray) are a stoic and aloof race of elves who share an affinity with the roots of the earth, stone, and mountain. Their skin is pale with gray undertones and their hair is earthen brown to granite gray to obsidian black. They are spartan in both costume, lifestyle, and emotion, but to those that earn their friendship they are loyal to the end. Galiadre are poised and reserved beings whose culture is strongly tied to ancient traditions, skeptical of shorter lived races who can barely remember their own history longer than a Galiadre's lifetime. They dwell in forested mountain valleys where they build their homes from stone, magically shaped by their supernatural vocalizations into breathtakingly beautiful towers that soar into the treetops and cling to mountainous cliff sides with impossible grace.
The Selere (sel lair) are a race of aquatic elves who live in deep salt-water seas. For the most part they are reclusive, though the occasional Selere goes to live away from their kind and at the surface, whether as an outcast or adventurer.
The Tenerthor (ten-ur thor), or Culip-non (the "uncultured") as the Lerether elves call them are a race of elves which herald from beyond the Evermounts. Small clans of the Tenerthor are scattered though-out the world and can even be found occasionally within island clusters on the seas. For the most part the Tenerthor are a nomadic race, however, the "high-class" of the Tenerthor hold a great civilization hidden beyond the Evermounts.
The Haruninki (Ha rune in kye), also informally called Haruchi, live in lands to the far west which they call Urharulan, or Jhet Brahna - "The Homeland." Haruninkian society is rigidly caste and few Haruninki can be found outside of their lands. Those that are either are of a disposition that does not fit into their society, are on a quest to improve their status in the society, or are criminals banished from the Homeland. Haruninki have rigid facial features and tight, compact bodies. They are naturally athletic and easily rise in skill in physical sports or exercises. Honor is an important facet of Haruninkian lifestyle and it impacts almost every facet of their culture. Those few Haruchi who are banished from society frequently show extreme temperaments against lawful environments.
The Heimrohar (Hym ro har), also known as the Half-Dead inherit the traits of strange parentage. The first heimrohar were born in Larenmorn, a land where spirits of the dead can intermingle and live lives as though they were still among the living, and were progeny of the living and the spirits who dwelt in those lands. Following generations have one or more Heimrohar parent in their ancestry or are directly descended from the continued mingling of spirits and the living in Larenmorn.
The Lupinal (Loo pin-all) are a carnivorous race of wolf-like creatures that are often confused with lycanthropes or other man-wolves. They are a strong and durable creature and are capable hunters and fighters. Lupinal are fairly rare and small in population. Because of their persecution at the hands of other races, due mostly to confusion between them and the lycanthropes, they are a closed society that intentionally lives in remote woodlands and far from human populace. They are stocky and burly framed humanoids with a thick matted fur covering their entire body. Their faces are fairly wolf- like, and their voices are deep and rumbling.
The Oruli (Or rule lee)are a race of tree inhabiting herbivores. They are curious, quick, and intelligent. Oruli are suspicious of outsiders to their culture but are easily befriended. They resemble a large monkey in size with more rounded features, a wiry frame, and a long prehensile tail which they can use to help manipulate simple tools or for climbing. They are flexible and sensitive creatures with strong senses of balance, sight, and smell. They are generally non-violent creatures.
The Silothreni (Sye loth wren eye) are a subterranean race of humanoids distantly related to the Haruninki. They are rarely seen upon the surface of the world due to a potent allergic reaction that they suffer when exposed to direct sunlight. Most other races are suspicious of the Silothreni due to legends surrounding their break from the Haruninki and also because those which do travel the surface usually are covered in clothing and hide their faces while outdoors.
