Shimmering Kingdoms True20
Brutekin are the equivalent to Half-orcs, spawned from Humans mating with Brutes. Brutes are the wild nomadic, barbaric evil hordes that ravage outposts on the fringes of the frontier. Brutes are the name that humans call the conglomeration of orcs, goblinoids, giantkin and the like. Bugbears and Gnolls are also considered Brutes. They often dwell in the same encampment, although there is an enormous amount of in-fighting between the Brutish races. A Brutekin is the offspring of one of these barbaric tribesmen and a human. It is more likely the fruit of rapine, the human woman brutalized during a raid, but there are the rare instance where human males interact with a She-Brute resulting in a Brutekin offspring. The Brutekin is ostracized by all humans, save a select few to whom the Brutekin has proven himself to. It is common for lynch mobs to aggressively pursue any Brutekin they see lurking around their village, or if the Brutekin seems too formidable a foe, the locals may appeal to a reeve for intervention, or even a knight may take up the cause of ridding the village of such a vile beast.
