BICLOPS



"Grruuuh!"

The Biclops is a grayish-brown, two headed giant standing 11+ feet tall. Each head has one large yellow eye. Presumably they are hybrids of Ettins and Cyclopskin, but they appear to have been rejected by both if this is true. They are filthy, disgusting creatures, not even speaking Common or Giant, but communicating through grunts and crude pantomime. They will devour anything organic, even rotting meat.

BICLOPS CHARACTERS
Biclops are pretty limited in scope. Really the only thing you have the mindset or skills for is a melee fighter of some kind.
Adventuring Race: Given their reduced mental faculties and the (well deserved) prejudice against them, it's a rare Biclops that goes adventuring (and even then it's prolly an all evil party).
Character Development: Go melee beatstick, you really aren't made for anything else.
Character Names:

ROLEPLAYING A BICLOPS
You're pretty much despised by everyone, so there's a sizable chip on your shoulder. And don't you let anyone forget that for so much as a moment.
Personality: Biclops are the lowest of the low. Hated by virtually everyone, their lives are quick and brutal.
Behaviors: Biclops can eat anything organic, and spend all their time scrounging. Asleep during the day, they venture out at night.
Language: The Biclops communicate with a combination of grunts and mimicked animal sounds. It's rare for one to speak Giant or Common.

BICLOPS SOCIETY
Virtually none, as most Biclops don't even qualify as being stone age primitives. It's an exceptional one who can even speak a language.
Alignment : Almost universally Chaotic Evil.
Lands : Usually the Biclops prefer mountain cave systems.
Settlements : Occasionally a Biclops or two finds it's way into the Underdark, but it isn't common.
Beliefs : Biclops typically worship Grolantor.
Relations: Other races are food. Most sane beings attack them on sight, because if they don't the Biclops will follow them awaiting an opportunity for ambush.

BICLOPS ADVENTURES
A young dragon of some sort has set himself up in a local cavern. Obviously you have to eat him before he eats you.
A local evil Giant clan has been trying to press the other giants into service for a fight against the local humans. As if you needed their help to kill humans...
A mage did something to you and now you have to follow his orders. So now you're part of something called a "brute squad" trying to figure out how you'll escape...
