Legend Weaver On Nagis


The Nagis is an amphibious race that started out as swamp dwellers. All of their current settlements are built on or near water with the majority of them still being found within swamps. Sometime in the past the Nagis learned shipbuilding. With the Nagis’s natural affinity to water, the race developed the greatest sea bound explorers that the world has ever known. Not only has the race mapped the coastlines around the world, but it has also set up and become the greatest trading empire that the world has ever known. This, despite certain disadvantages that the Nagis had to overcome.

First, the Nagis is quite comfortable spending much of its time in water. The Nagis’s skin is very oily in nature. In fact, if a Nagis spends to much time out of water its skin will dry unless it uses oil to keep it moist. The oil is easy to obtain although the Nagis will go through a full flask of it each day while out of water. Twice this amount is required when the Nagis finds itself in hot climates.

The Nagis is cold blooded, meaning that it slows down as its body temperature drops.

The race cannot actually breathe water, but even surprised it may hold its breath longer than the best human. With preparation the Nagis may hold its breath for 10 minutes or more, even while active in the water

Because of the amount of time spent in the water, the Nagis have developed excellent underwater hearing and sight. Underwater their vision is equal to a normal human that is out of water. In addition, they may tell the direction to a sound, whether submerged or on land. The Nagis’s webbed hands and feet give the creature a great deal of natural swimming skill.
