Kentaurs are sylvan creatures that resemble pygmy centaurs and live
deep in the recesses of the darken wood. They have been compared to kender
in that fact that they are highly curious and playful. Among the elves
they are simply known as wood spirits or myths.
Kentaurs look much like centaurs, the upper portion of their bodies,
head, arms, and torso are humanoid, the lower portion are that of an equine
nature, similar too but smaller than a pony. Both the humanoid and pony
physiques are well defined. They have pointed ears and hair that grows
down their back like a mane.
Kentaurs only speak Sylvan, but have been known to learn phrases from
other languages such as common.
Kentaur are a curious and playful race, preferring to run than confront
an opponent, they stay well hidden and very rarely confrontational. Most
centaurs will carry bows and knives for hunting. For melee some are known
to carry quarterstaffs.
When faced with a threat to their communities or way of life, centaurs
rely heavily on ambush tactics and setting traps. If they feel as though
they will be forced into imprisonment a kentaur will fight to the death
to avoid it. Caged kentaur have only been known to live up to a week in
Kentaurs are sylvan creatures that are similar to satyrs in nature. They
enjoy music, dancing, and celebration. Among they’re own kind, kentaur
are friendly and amiable. When interacting with other races that are not
sylvan in nature kender are friendly and curious but guarded and suspicious.
Kentaurs at the very least travel in pairs. They never travel by themselves
if possible. Pairs are sent hunting for small game and to go foraging.
Some centaur tribes consider kentaurs as a bit of a nuisance because they
are known to “forage” in the centaur’s private gardens. Kentaurs also
grow their own gardens, but they tend to let them get overgrown from time
to time. They are very adept at horticulture and grow dangerous plants,
poison ivy and thorn bushes around their habitats to keep unwanted intruders
A typical kentaur habitat is a large clearing with a source of fresh
running water. Huts are built and sculpted from brush and overgrowth.
Cooking areas are always kept far from trees in a well-ventilated place.
Along with the hunting and foraging kentaur also fish, farm their own
vegetables, and in some areas kentaurs will trade with nearby Centaurs.
Occasionally they provide services for Centaurs like traveling deep into
the forest on the edge of magical glades of the fae folk, such as pixies
and sprites, whom the Kentaur are on good terms with.
The regions in which the kentaur dwell in are rarely visited by other
races, so other races are generally unaware of the presence of kentaur.
Kentaur view all races with the same level of curiosity and open-mindedness.
Elves are even slightly trusted by kentaur. Centaurs are welcomed, and
all other races are tolerated until the kentaurs curiosity is satisfied
then asked to leave.
Occasionally kentaur have been known to become so curious about the
outside world that the curiosity overrides their need for safety within
the tribe and they leave their wilderness homes to travel the world. Such
kentaur are never seen by their tribe again.
Kentaurs that leave their tribe can become rangers, bards or druids. Their
favored class is druid. Druid Kentaurs usually take it upon themselves
to find their own sacred grove and protect it. This may take many years
or even a lifetime in some cases. Once they find this grove they settle
there defending it and the area surrounding it. High level kentaur druids
will take an apprentice and teach them the ways of the druid.
