ABOUT

Yamahs travel the planes promoting the ideals of freedom and fairness, using their unique talents to rob evildoers of their magic and turn it into a weapon for good. Yamahs harbor ill will toward anyone who would use magic for cruel or evil purposes, especially necromancers and creatures that use magic to trap souls and pervert life. Though yamahs often bear a stern countenance, they nonetheless enjoy lighthearted pranks and cheery jokes when appropriate.

The white markings that cover yamahs’ bodies may at first appear to be tattoos but are in fact natural sigils that are unique to each individual. The average yamah stands just over 6 feet tall and weighs 140 pounds.

Eclipse Oracles. Because of the presence of mystery cults and the open worship of empyreal lords, yamahs can often be seen during lunar eclipses and other significant celestial events. Legends among mystery cults claim that yamahs sometimes accompany good spellcasters on crusades against otherworldly fiends, though every story inevitably ends with the yamah mysteriously departing after the deed is done, abandoning its mortal partner without a word.
