Relying on ancient, mystical wisdom and a knowledge of the martial arts, the Shama'Li strive to defend themselves from the madness sweeping their world. Their ultimate goal is not only to protect the weak but to bring the four races together in a just and unified brotherhood.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Shama'Li are the last free race of Yavaun. As the sun is setting on the era of Tha'Roon rule and the revolution of the Eaggra ignites, the Shama'Li believe in the Original One, NagaRom, who can bring about the salvation of Yavaun. As the Eaggra lash out and the Empire's twin pillars, the industrious Tha'Roon and the staunch Obblinox fight, the Shama'Li seek to gain the favor of the rebels and summon the Original One to bring his wisdom to the world.

We have but a single goal: to preserve what must be preserved, the ancient sites of power and the secrets hidden within. It is not Tha' Roon dominance which must be saved, nor Obblinox honour, nor the Eaggra's thirst for freedom, but the wisdom of each race. It is wisdom that decides the fate of the nations, not force of arms. We alone have been given the task of handing down the memories of the ancient past, and bring about our return to the days of the Great Kingdom. We must hold to our most ancient values: fight to defend the weak, preserve the old and hallowed sites, strive to make the ancient dream come true. Let this light of NagaRom's wisdom guide us. It is our destiny to find a way for the races to survive this night of battle, until the dawn of Wisdom arises once again

Technology[edit | edit source]

Shama'Li are loathe to meld metal and electricity with their bodies, finding the bioengineered tools of other races abhorrent. Purity of the body is integral to them, but to meet the challenges of warfare and competition, the Shama'Li rely on their magical talents and perform rituals to bond their bodies with the natural materials of the land, integrating them with the muscle and tissue of their bodies in ancient ritual patterns. The natural prostheses enhance the forces of nature to provide them with benefits comparable to other races.
