Black Breeds

The black breeds include the Razghati, Shiibati and Zubhati, three races commonly found in Muhlram. The black breeds are ancient races with stronger bounds to the immortals than most other races on Naboria. They are magical cross breeds between Miinati and Uuhlan, and appeared long before other of the actual mortal races. The ancient lore books, kept in secret in the vaults of the Black Emperor, contain stories about the Uuhlan brothers who felt in love with Miinati women. Using their abilities they took the form of miinati men and seduced the women. Their children were immortal, but had already the characteristics of the actual races. The names of the three children were Razgh, Shiib and Zubh, and their children were mortal and became the races of today. They are called the Black Breeds because all members of these races have black skin, like their ancestors. A legend tells that the birth of the first albino will announce the Fall of the Empire.

The Razghati are a humanoid race that is very close to humans. They resemble black skinned humans with dark blue hair and red eyes, thus some people believe them to be related to the Azagishi, which they aren't. Razghati are principally found in the Muhlram desert on Nimur. They tend to be LE to LN. They live up to 90 years, reaching maturity in the late teens. They are organized in Emirates and revere the elemental Gods. Some Razghati have begun to revive an ancient cult from a long lost culture. They often use Maghati, Shiibati and Zubhati as soldiers for their armies. Razghati have following traits:

  • +1 Con, +1 Int, -2 Wis.
  • Base Speed: 30 feet.
  • Low-light Vision.
  • Medium size.
  • Automatic Languages: Razghati (2). The Razghati language uses an alphabet known as reeom, which is shared by Shiibati and Zubhati.
  • Bonus Languages: Shiibati (2), Zubhati (2), Ancient Muhlrami (4).
  • Favoured Class: Warrior.



The Shiibati are large strong humanoids that dwell in the desert of Muhlram. The Black Emperor rules a large Empire at the border of the desert near the Pillars of Heaven. Shiibati look like a larger version of Razghati: black skin, blue hair, red eyes. They are evil but noble, disliking senseless destruction. They often fight as mercenaries for other kingdoms but in reality serve as spies for the Black Emperor. Shiibati have following traits:

  • +4 Str, +2 Con, +1 Dex, -1 Int, -4 Cha.
  • Base Speed: 40 feet.
  • Low-light Vision.
  • Large size.

  • Bonus Languages: Zubhati.
  • Favoured Class: Fighter.
  • ECL+1.



The Zubhati are huge humanoids resembling a cross breed between shiibati and giants. They are dim-witted but very loyal. In times of peace they like to relax hearing music and crafting marvelous art objects. But in times of war they become deadly fighting machines that enter a bloody killing rage. Zubhati are found only in the north of the Muhlram desert, where they serve Razghati and Shiibati. Zubhati have following traits:

  • +6 Str, +6 Con, -4 Int, -4 Wis, -4 Cha.
  • Base Speed: 50 feet.
  • Huge size.
  • Rage: regardless of class, any Zubhati can enter a blood rage as described in the description of the barbarian in PH.
  • Fast healing 5. Zubhati have a very strong metabolism that permits them to heal wounds at an incredible speed.
  • Automatic Languages: Razghati (2), Shiibati (2), Zubhati (2). Although dim-witted, Zubhati learn the language of their masters as children and all of them speak them perfectly. However, most zubhati are illiterate.
  • Favoured Class: Fighter.
  • ECL+2
