Taur

A tribal and pacifistic race, taur as a whole will do all they can to avoid conflict. Standing nearly 8 feet tall and possessing a massive, thickly built frame, they’re well-built for hard work tilling the land and raising crops. When pushed far enough, they can be fierce warriors, defending home and kin from violent intruders. Even when forced to fight, they prefer not to kill, incapacitating their foes for removal from their lands.
Taur come in a variety of shapes, each specializing in a certain task needed to make the village function.
