The setting is set in a carrotbased fictive Scandinavia based on Ushiris fantasy and co-created with writer/troubadur Henrik Berntsson. Armour and weapons are partially based on the era of Vikings and medieval Europe, exceptions of this is the Duchy of Crownburg. The world is inhabited mostly by furries and humans are seen as evil and greedy and are very few. Most creatures are based on the artwork of Ushiri. All ideas & art is copyright Ushiri Stenberg 2021
Fearless in combat and feels no pain since they dont have a reactive nervesystem which is a great help to continue fighting even when sustained heavy wounds like getting an arm chopped of.The big problem with this is that they often bleed to death by minor injuries when they are not in combat. Healing powers is strong within this group. The god they worship is still unknown.
Gortmass is very attractive to Rodda clans all over the Ushirian landscape since it can be used quick to stop bloodloss.
When outside of combat they tend to be a bit avoidant. Their community usually have strong seductive females that usually long to conquer new slaves to bed from all races of Ushiria. Female Roddor are strong agitators of war and use bodylanguage to invoke adrenaline to the weaker males that are mostly driven by inner urges.
Roddor likes to use their fists when in fights . A big issue for the Roddor is that they grow quickly in numbers but also when it comes to become mature. In earth months it takes 2 months for the young to become mature. The great fistfights and other population reducing sports are popular in the Roddor communities since the biggest issue is to gain food equal to the population.
A not so aggressive sport they perform is “Catch the ring”
“ Stickhat sounds”
The stickhat on the Rodda in red on the picture is also sometimes made of metal and has a ring which makes a sound when the owner twirls his head around when moving. This is considered some sort of sacred ritual yet to be learned about.
Females of he Roddor and community leaders
Quite often in Ushiria leaders are of female heritage, this is especially common with Roddor
Fnorfs, a grey people but what they lack in colour the gain in agressivity. Wild by nature and prefer to live in the Ushirian mountainside. Most famous locations with Fnorfs are in the Hardnorth hills ( Hallandsåsen) in Fnorfendorf and at the coastline in Fnorfbürg that are both controlled by the last Jandort king ” Kung Jan”. Recently his Legatus Önkhel ( Named by Moa) has taken control over the former village of Winslow(Vinslöv) and renamed it to Önkheljunga (Örkelljunga) where he is collecting Fnaggles to build up a heavy cavalry force. Read more it in upcoming posts.
( I drew the first Fnorfs in 1994 but then they where solely called Norfs, which also makes sense since they where first found in the North of Malmhaugar and the north of the known world of Ushiria )
