Their front halves are avian and almost entirely covered in feathers; only their hooked beaks and scaled talons are bare of the dense plumage.

The influence of the cinnrogh

Etymology and Other Names[]

The word cinnrogh comes from the old gabhainian phrase, cinn roghnaithe na, which can be translated roughly as 'we who have been selected'. MORE?

Biology[]

Despite appearing to be a fusion of two entirely different creatures, the build of a cinnrogh is sleek and elegant. Their bodies are lithe and limber and move with incredible fluidity and grace, their hollow bones making them seem to almost float even when on land. Their front halves are avian and almost entirely covered in feathers; only their hooked beaks and scaled talons are bare of the dense plumage.

Around their midsections the feathers of a cinnrogh will abruptly stop to grow, the rest of their bodies instead covered in tough reptilian scales. Most individuals have spikes running down the back of their half-reptillian bodies, and occassionally, their feathers will run down their entire spine in a kind of mane, ending only at the spaded tip of their tail.

Their feathers and scales are near universally dark in color, evolved from a need for the cold-blooded race to conserve heat in the frigid tundras of Talnaithe. Though their wings come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, each identified wing type has its advantages and disadvantages for various types of flight and soaring.

Racial Traits (D&D 3.5e/Pathfinder)[]

Most cinnroghs are Medium, incurring no benefits or penalties for their size. More compact cinnroghs can instead be Small, incurring the benefits and penalties appropriate for their size. All cinnroghs are quadrupedal and incur the benefits and penalties of the subtyping. Cinnrogh characters may choose either +2 Dexterity and -2 Strength or +2 Wisdom and -2 Charisma to be applied to their starting ability scores. While cinnroghs are agile and nimble, their light frames tend to leave them less physically powerful than others of their size. Cinnrogh who instead rely on shrewd cunning to get by are more observant, but are also less amicable to their peers owing to their condescending tendencies. 

Active

Cinnroghs have a Flight speed of 20ft with poor maneuverability. At character level 5, and every 5 character levels thereafter, this fly speed increases by 10 to a maximum of 60ft at 20th level. At level 5, their maneuverability becomes average, and at level 10, their maneuverability becomes good. While flying, a cinnrogh can ascend at half speed and descend at double speed. Their flight speed is cut in half if they are wearing medium or heavy armor. While flying, a cinnrogh can act normally. They receive a +1 racial bonus to the Fly skill and it is treated as a class skill for them regardless of their class.
