||These squat, grey-skinned humanoids have sharp yellowed fangs and yellow eyes that can see clearly in dark and smoky atmospheres. However, they are sensitive to ultraviolet light, which makes them less well able to see in daylight than humans (1 grade harder during day). Their lungs are very efficient at filtering and neutralising inhaled toxins, their porous body fat insulates their internal organs from extreme temperatures, and their cartilaginous bones have twice the strength of the human equivalent. Their alimentary canal and stomach are impervious to all non-corrosive poisons.
These are resourceful and physically tough lugro which comprise war-bands that raid territories bordering upon the Darklands. They are infiltrators, scouts, hunters and warriors and are usually mounted on warwargs. They can operate autonomously for months beyond the Darklands, hiding in forest or hills and pillaging remote or poorly defended human settlements.
Typical Armour: studded leather, Brigandine helm
Dark Axe: A wicked barbed axe favoured by many for its ability to catch an opponent’s weapons and tear them out of their grasp, this axe has several metal protrusions around the head and along its metal-jacketed haft. Any time an opponent is struck by a Dark Axe in melee combat while wielding a one-handed melee weapon the attacker can perform a free disarm combat Manoeuvre in addition to any one chosen.
Black Iron Bow: The black iron bow is the standard elite weapon for rare lugro archers and other skilled ranged attackers in the Darklands armies. With its shaft of bent and tempered black iron and its braided steel cable for a string, this bow fires its specially crafted metal arrows with remarkable force and accuracy. Though its heavy arrows do not fly as far as a normal longbow, they hurt a great deal more when they hit.+1 AP effect.
Fang Shield: A middle-sized shield shaped like an oversized arrowhead or spear tip, the fang shield is so-named because it most commonly has two long spikes protruding from its bottom. Worn lengthwise rather than sideways on the arm, the fang shield is as much a stabbing weapon as it is a protective tool. As the shield must be secured firmly to the arm, it is immune to the Grab Weapon Combat Manoeuvre.
