Chosen of Frostine 


Most legends say that the Chosen of Frostine were once human, but taken by the deity Frostine when he first appeared on Habololy and altered to suit his needs. For much of the continent of Icefia’s history, the Chosen ruled over it.  The Chosen enslaved the ice gnomes and forced the barbarians and other humans to pay tribute. It wasn’t until the Kingdom of Icefia and the deities Stasis and Gnarion appeared that the Chosen began to loose control. They were pushed back into the most northern parts of the continent and their nation was broken up.  They still remain in communities and cities, but have lost their organization and the power they once wielded.  The Chosen follow the will of Frostine, which is for them to retake Icefia and bring an icy blanket to the continent again.

Their culture resembles that of the other human cultures, but with a singular focus. There is no variety of religion, there is no trade with other races or nations, and there is little entertainment or pleasure. Both males and females work towards the same goals. Children are seen as necessary elements in continuing the will of Frostine.

Chosen of Frostine have their own language. They have also been known to speak ice gnome and common.

 

APPEARANCEWhen one first looks at the Chosen of Frostine, it is easy to mistake them for a human, albeit a pale one.  A closer inspection reveals that the human has skin that is far paler than a healthy human could have.  They stand taller than the average human, usually at least six feet tall, but weigh about the same and have a variety of physical builds.  Their hair, if not shaved off, is thin and white in color and their eyes are blue or gray.

 

ALIGNMENT:  Chosen tend towards neutral and evil.  About one in three will not be of that alignment.  Those tend more towards lawful than chaotic and more towards neutral than good.

 

RELIGION: By far and away, the religion of the Chosen is that of Frostine.  Any other faiths must be allowed by Frostine.
