AMITOK CHARACTERS
Most people will look down on you because they consider you an unintelligent brute. And..you kind of are a brute, but you don't feel that lets people give you the short end. Which is the polite way of saying you beat up a lot of civilized people.
Adventuring Race: Why members of this class go on adventures.
Character Development: Try to find a reason you would tolerate the other members of the party, let alone work with them. Unless they're all Amitok as well, or your leader has ordered you to, you aren't really a 'joiner'.
Character Names:

ROLEPLAYING AN AMITOK
Quick generalization about playing a member of this race.
Personality: Fear is not allowed among your people. Even if you're afraid, you're required to charge toward the source of your fear. You've quickly learned to make screams of terror sound like barbaric war cries.
Behaviors: The Amitok are obsessed with survival at any cost, so you spend much time refining the necessary skills.
Language: Amitok speak a degenerated version of Goblin, and have no written language.

AMITOK SOCIETY
The Amitok are primitives with only the barest semblance of society. Neandertals are more advanced than they are.
Alignment : Amitok are only concerned with the tribes survival, so almost all of them are Neutraal, and most are Evil as well.
Lands : Amitok generally only live in arctic or subarctic climates with cave systems, and a lack of other nearby races.
Settlements : Amitok do not leave their region unless cast out.
Beliefs : Virtually all Amitok worship Cryonax. How and why this has happened is unknown at this point.
Relations: Amitok hate and despise most other races, even other Goblinoids, and consider them food. Some tribes will occasionally partner with Quaggoths, whom they are often mistaken for.

AMITOK ADVENTURES
A Frost Giant has moved in on your tribes territory, and you think it's time he got shown the door.
Priests of a strange foreign race claim to be here to 'return' you to the worship of their heathen God. They're little too, so stomping them should be easy.
Cryonax has sent the Shamans visions of never ending winter, in which your people overrun the world. Now they want you to hwlp make it a reality. As if you knew something about making it snow.
