The Depths of Dullahan's Deep
Even though Shifters are not a standard PC race in Dullahan, at the DMs discretion a Player may create one. These PCs should be an exile, wanderer, or agent sent from one of the primitive tribes that serve the Devas, and live the the forests far to the south of the Muskeg Swamp. Shifters were little more then animals when the Devas discovered them. The Devas have brought them the knowledge they needed to slowly evolve into a primitive tribal society. Currently the Devas observe more then influence the Shifters, but they do often use tribes to act as shock troops against a hidden cult of demon worshippers (possibly Rakshasa) that use remote sections of the forest as a base. Shifter tribes are comprised of up to a dozen fairly large families (of both “Razorclaw” and “Longtooth” Shifters) that live in small thatch and hide huts, in the forest near Deva’s “Ivory Towers”. The tribes are ruled by the most spiritual member of the clan. Upon death a Shifter may be left where they fell (if far from home), or the clan may ritualistically devour the corpse as part of a funerary rite.
