The hurwaeti are an ancient humanoid race distantly related to both sahuagin and lizard men. In space, they usually function as mercenaries, common crewmen, or occasionally as pirates, traders, or salvagers operating their own ships. The hurwaeti were once a great spacefaring race that had colonized many systems, spreading art, civilization, morality, and and philosophy favoring altruism and discipline throughout the spheres. But an ancient war broke up their empire and killed the brightest and most energetic individuals. The destruction stranded the hurwaeti colonists, leaving them to degenerate into the swamp and salt wiggles. The remaining spacefarers became impoverished wanderers, content to simply earn a living for themselves and their tribes.
Hurwaeti have dark olive-green hides and long limbs, webbed fingers and toes, and gnome-like faces with large ears, noses, and long, sharp chins. Adult hurwaeti often have short, sparse beards and tufts of coarse hair atop their heads. Venerable adults tend to have long beards, thicker tufts of hair, and bushy eyebrows. Hurwaeti favor simple clothing, usually long, brightly colored loin cloths, and belts and packs for carrying equipment.
Hurwaeti tribes are made up of clans, each ruled by an elder. The senior clan head – usually the oldest and wealthiest – governs the tribe. All disputes within the tribe are settled by appealing to the tribal chief. Priests are usually Druids or Clerics dedicated to Cosmos (especially his pessimistic aspects) and are often chiefs of clan-heads.
Hurwaeti tend to use lizardfolk names, with inflections of their own ancient cultures. Male Names: Aeia, Mitvia, Puddleglum, Vuella, Ida. Female Names: Simin, Oiert, Tuess, Aedo
