RC: Dryads by mopomoko RC: Dryads by mopomoko

Dryads




Description: This all-female race is found across Noverra but is most populous in its forests. Each dryad can turn into a single kind of plant, usually a tree, which they resemble in their humanoid form. They are the race most knowledgable and respectful of nature, and are better at blending into their surroundings than even the elves.

Culture: Dryads are a peaceable race who prefer to avoid conflict provided their home isn't threatened. As a species, they're shy and wary of outsiders, especially after their populations were decimated during the war.

They can afford so much alone time due to their great self-sufficiency. While they need the sun and water to survive, they require little else and eat perhaps once or twice a week. They can only digest plant biomass and regard eating plants the same way other species would beef or poultry. Their clothing is easily produced from plants and often modeled after them in appearance. All but the most extreme shifts in temperature are fine by them.

Every year starting on the spring equinox, groups of dryads gather for a 10-day festival to celebrate the rebirth of Noverra after winter. During this time they release spores which become the next generation.

Origin: Dryads were the creation of both gods but have a special connection with the Sun Goddess, who gave them their feminine appearance and love of light.

Avg. Lifespan: A dryad's age varies depending on what plant they take after, but they can live for a minimum of 60 and a maximum of 400 years.

Avg. Height: Their height is usually influenced by their species of plant and can range anywhere between 3 and 7 feet.

Gosh, I love dryads, especially as depicted in this picture , that's why I'm so excited for an opening, ever since yesterday ( when I discovered this group ) I've been working on several concepts, and I finally got one I liked- A dryad. She's already painted on canvas, I just need to finish the background (Probably should have done that first, but I was way too excited to bring her to life) But one question... I'm not very skilled with drawing compared to other people in this group, but i'm not completely suckish either, and with writing, I'm fairly decent (I'm still trying to increase my vocabulary, as well as finding my style)
Do you think because of my average skills I have a less chance of getting in?

Oh my, I'm really glad to see you're excited about applying! We need more dryads. u v u

Hmm, honestly? I doubt it should. A lot of it will depend on which kingdom you're applying for, the level of competition for that kingdom and their personal standards for applicants, which should be stated in their journals. If you've got a solid character designed, though, there isn't any reason why skill level should hold you back.

Best of luck, man!

What Dryad wears clothes?! =p More seriously, I think she looks great. I don't think she looks plain and boring at all.
