The Last Quintessence
The common term for the Iron-Born is “Mason”. Well known for their feats of technological advancement through non-magical means, the Iron-Born are hard workers. The train sprung from their mine cart designs out of Machor Del Fe, of which most Iron-Born congregate and settle. Anyone born of the mountains could claim iron blood. To say they are shorter than True-Born is but a trick of the eye. Yes their limbs are thick and sturdy, making them appear stout, but they are very much just as tall as any normal True-Born. Their skin is usually an ashen color but retains warm tones. Some Iron-Born are even born larger than most, making them tower over any True, or even Empire-Born. These individuals are particularly well suited to the Iron-Born sport of wrestling.
Iron-Born are large, but slow moving, sturdy, yet ill-versed in the finer points of society, and even their manner of speech can make them hard to understand at times. However they are the kings and queens of physical prowess in all of Renovys, for this they use the Dwarf template, with one minor change: +2 Str, -2 Wis… making their racial ability score bonuses +2 Str, +2 Con, and -2 Cha.
