A rare golden Drul mask

During the early stages of Matonikka supremacy, the territory established by Dhar the Far-seer absorbed the different tribes in which a strong, unified, and well-organized state power had developed. The social organization of the Drul was, however, characterized by trade, mercantilism and a decentralized filial system of tribes. Antagonism was prevalent between the Matonikka rule and the subjugated tribes, between a relatively small number of the Matonikka conquerors and the numerically strong but conquered population. In the early phases of conquest, the Matonikka usually attempted to impose the social structure of their tribe, which was Coleiodos dominant, upon their new…

A Drul with a rare mohawk

Thassala is the 4th planet in the Thepheahiri Star System. It is a place with planet-wide oceans, covering 90% of the planet in oxygen rich waters.

The occurrence of islands on the planet’s surface are the results of magma leaking out…

They are humanoid with octopus-like facial features. They have slimy yet smooth skin that ranges from blueish green to orange.
