“What have we here?” Koram asked. The fighter and his companions had surprised a tall, thin creature that was talking to a group of goblins.
The goblins gibbered. Gnybaro snapped off a reply in the goblin tongue back at them.
The tall creature put his arms out, signaling that he didn’t want any trouble.
“There is no need for violence here. These goblins were telling me that a two-headed giant was in the area and that it was hungry,” the alien creature said to Koram and the others in perfect Common.
Koram looked at Chalk, Gnybaro and Valance, then turned back to regard the goblins and the well weird being that was dressed in expensive robes.
“No need for violence?” Koram asked incredulously. “Those are goblins. And we don’t know what you are.”
The approaching heavy thudding of giant footsteps cut the conversation short as everyone scrambled for cover. The ettin grumbled and growled. One head asked the other if it had heard anything.

The tall and thin Morili are creatures thought to have come from another plane or maybe from a land past the stars. Long ago these creatures appeared, with advanced technology, but not a warlike mentality, almost as if they were fleeing from someone or something.
Since that time their technology has faded, being broken or run out of energy to power it. Content to live in a more mundane world, the Morili are often quite wealthy and well-to-do, not because of their knowledge, but due to their innate ability to understand and speak any language they hear, making them the ultimate translators. Morili are often employed to assist in negotiations, bargaining or diplomatic maneuvers, killing one of these creatures can bring an empire down on the assassin.
In appearance, Morili are tall and thin bipeds, with slightly bluish skin and large dark eyes. Nowadays these weird creatures dress in thick and opulent robes. The Morili will fight, but they try to negotiate their value before resorting to violence.
Morili project an aura of Empathy constantly that calms creatures in the area and makes an attacker think twice about engaging in combat with such frail creatures. Anyone or anything trying to attack a Morili is -2 to Hit due to this aura. During this time the Morili will try reasoning with their attacker.
