B'ROHG CHARACTERS
As usual, Hit Dice and LA preclude most casters. Though you have some decent multiweapon fighting options available if you go pure beatstick.
Adventuring Race: Escaped gladiators feel too ashamed to return to their tribe, and are the only ones likely to become adventurers (as quite frankly they have no other option but living alone in the wilderness).
Character Development: You'll get a lot of prejudice for being a member of this race, so plan accordingly.
Character Names:

ROLEPLAYING A B'ROHG
Due to their primitive natures the B'rohg are looked down upon by almost everyone, with most civilized races considering them little more than animals.
Personality: You are neither suspicious nor superstitious, and are generally curious or in awe of things you should probably leave well enough alone.
Behaviors: Being primitive nomads, the B'rohg's existence requires most of their waking moments dedicated to simple survival.
Language: B'rohg speak their own language consisting of grunts and sign language.

B'ROHG SOCIETY
The B'rohg are stone age, nomadic primitives with little to no culture. For the most part they can't even learn modern languages. They produce nothing, and contribute to civilization only as gladiatorial slaves. Unlike many races, they appear to have no defined gender roles.
Alignment : Being close to animals, most B'rohg are Neutral.
Lands : Due to their nomadic nature the B'rohg can be found virtually anywhere on Athas.
Settlements : Having no homelands, the B'rohg have no settlements as well.
Beliefs : The B'rohg do not appear to have a religion.
Relations: Other races consider the B'rohg as animals or slaves only. For their part, the B'rohg will eat the other races if hard pressed.

B'ROHG ADVENTURES
· You were a gladiatorial slave until a disaster of some sort wiped out the city you were in, leaving everything dead but you. You know journey to find out what happened, and why you were spared.
· Your master has promised you freedom if you hunt down a man for him. Skeptical, you agree. Things have taken an odd turn since then...
· Psychic surgery has altered you, and granted you human level intelligence. Now you look for a place in the world. Your tribe won't take you back, no one wants an intelligent B'rohg, and your benefactors apparently consider making you intelligent an unwelcome side effect of their experiment.
