Treekin

Treekin are mysterious beings bound to the woods and forests of Warj'Arune, in a way that no other creature can understand. They claim to actually be the offspring of the trees and some other, greater Power. A Treekin looks humanoid in form, but their skin is always the rough bark of the tree that sprouted them. Of the many races present on Warj'Arune, only the Aasimar are more opposed to Evil than the Treekin.

Note that all Treekin MAY NOT begin play with an Evil alignment. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS. If you wish to play a Treekin with an Evil alignment, start as Neutral or Good, and then roleplay it out with some DMs. Expect it to be a long and arduous task.
