Leilani are humanoids who live in the deep jungles of central Mastaci. They are related to the other Kolumakan races through ancestral relations ot the Kolumaka, but have diverted into their own species. They appear as slightly taller halflings with two distinguishing characteristics--a third eye and prehensile feet (like apes). They have darker skin--ranging from tan to near-black--much darker than the pale Haukea. Leilani have a natural predilection towards jungles, woods, and other forested environments.

Alignment: Most Leilani tend towards neutrality and good. However, this is by no means a requirement.

Lands: Leilani prefer heavily forested environments, up to and including rainforests and deep jungles. It is not unheard of, however, for Leilani to come into towns and cities. They don't usually stay long, except in exceptional cases.

Religion: Most Leilani prefer to worship deities related to nature and animals, such as Horjin or Nelig.

Language: Leilani speak Common as well as their own racial language, Kolumaka.

Player Character Leilani

  • Dexterity +2, Intelligence -2, Wisdom +2, Charisma -2. Leilani are nimbler and more perceptive than most, considering their wild nature, but they lack the education and tact that comes with civilization.
  • Leilani are Small-sized. As small creatures, Leilani gain a +1 size bonus to Armor Class, +1 size bonus on attack rolls, and +4 size bonus on Hide checks. However, they use smaller weapons than humans use, and their lifting and carrying limits are three-quarters that of a Medium creature.
  • A Leilani's base land speed is 20 feet.
  • A Leilani also has a base climb speed of 20 feet. This grants them a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks. It must make a Climb check to climb any wall or slope with a DC of more than 0, but it can always choose to take 10, even if rushed or threatened while climbing. If it chooses an accelerated climb, it moves at double its climb speed and makes a single Climb check at a -5 penalty. It cannot run while climbing. It retains its Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) while climbing, and opponents get no special bonus on their attacks against a climbing Leilani. Also, Leilani can add either their Dexterity modifier or Strength modifier to Climb checks (whichever is higher).
  • Humanoid: Leilani are humanoids with the (Kolumaka) subtype.
  • Third Eye: A Leilani's third eye is not a vestigal organ and provides the following benefits:
  • Trinocular Vision: A Leilani receives a +2 racial bonus to Spot checks and a +1 racial bonus on ranged attack rolls due to their unique depth perception.
  • Lifesight: Leilani can use detect animals or plants as a spell-like ability. This ability can be used for a total time of one minute per hit die per day, divided however you choose, with each usage taking up a minimum of one minute. In addition, during the use of this ability, the Leilani loses their racial bonus to Spot checks and ranged attack rolls.
  • A Leilani's third eye also grants them low-light vision out to 60'.
  • Racial Weapon Proficiency: All Leilani are proficient with the shortsword, handaxe, spear, javelin, and shortbow.
  • Illiteracy: Leilani are illiterate but can purchase the ability to read all languages known to them by buying two ranks of Speak Language.
  • Prehensile Feet: Leilani are capable of grasping objects with their feet. While this is the main reason that they are such good climbers, Leilani also use this to their advantage when grappling, and receive a +4 bonus to grapple checks.
  • Automatic languages: Common, Kolumaka
  • Bonus Languages: Sylvan, Terran
  • Favored Class: Barbarian
