The page on mandeans has been uploaded on Llurien.com. Some highlights:

Mandeans are one of the seven original humanoid species. They are amphibious. On land, they can breathe through their skins instead of lungs but that requires their skin to be moist. They do not have scales as some believe, but their skin is poisonous to consume. Salt water mandeans are called oceanic while fresh water are called river mandeans. Those who can breathe in both are called hydeans, as in hybrid mandeans.

Mandeans are slightly taller than most humans and have a sturdy, solid build, with large bones and solid muscle. Most have blue or green backs and white or light blue fronts. They sometimes follow a river to its source, living in mountain and subterranean lakes. Underwater settlements have great ecosystems. They use a spear or trident, or teeth and talons if disarmed. Mandean society is dominated by unity. They share and sacrifice for each other without jealousy or resentment. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Social standing is not recognized except for a minimal amount needed to govern.

The page on kryll has been uploaded to Llurien.com. Some highlights:

Kryll are one of the seven original humanoid species. Averaging six inches taller than humans, kryll are powerfully built humanoids, with agile, muscular bodies capable of impressive acrobatics and martial arts. They are graceful and adept at climbing trees, have strong, large hands and feet, and are usually ambidextrous. Kryll prefer deep woodlands and can get closer to animals than others.

Some are heavily influenced by Kriseri, the goddess of peace, one of their creators. These “kriserian” kryll are pacifists. Others are strongly influenced by another creator, Solon, the god of fairness, and called “solonon” kryll. They dislike anyone taking action against another and will intervene. Kryll prefer fighting by hand and using special bracers called “kryllan hands” to protect arms and forearms from bladed weapons. Weapons of their own design are preferred and include the kryllan sword, kryllan bow, kryllan hands, and jhaikan-staff.

The page on morkais has been uploaded to Llurien.com. Some highlights:

Morkais originated from the Divine Covenant and are not one of the seven original, humanoid species. They share physical traits with daekais, but do not have poisonous teeth or claws. They have great memories and quick, attentive, wise minds. They make few social mistakes, slips of the tongue, or inappropriate comments. Morkais are often employed as messengers, either working for government, nobility, themselves (for hire), the rich (such as merchants), or their species.

They do not attack ideas or those who have them. They actively seek out other cultures for art, cooking, political ideas, sports, architecture, history and more. All morkais can speak, read, and write kais, Antarian, karelian, querran, and kryllan; they often work as translators. They often know how to speak some riven and jhaikan, including reading the symbols of the latter.

The page on daekais has been uploaded to Llurien.com. Some highlights:

Daekais are three to four feet tall and have large, feathery wings. They are known as the most self-centered, greedy, ignorant and amoral thing alive. Legends say that daekais are so cowardly that a whole group of them once fell dead when the god of courage appeared among them suddenly. They are famous for attacking travelers near forest edges and mountains, with morkais interfering.

Daekais can’t become wizards because they can’t read the spells, possess a spell book long enough (someone else will steal it), or have the intelligence and dedication to master something intellectual. They usually attack with short bow, crossbow, or slings, and will occasionally resort to dropping rocks. Since they have few arrows, they often loot battlefields, including their own. All daekais of a given tribe dress, walk, and talk the same, have the same interests and tell all the same stories.

The page on kais has been uploaded. Some highlights:

Kais are three to four feet tall with large, feathery wings. Both races are physically identical except that daekais have poisonous teeth and claws, and their eye colors differ. The wing coloring on top disguises kais from above. The underside is typically light. Forest kais have green feathers, sea kais have blue, golden kais live near plains or deserts, mountain kais have brown feathers, snow kais have white, and the rare night kais is all black. Females acquire display colors on both sides during mating season.

Kais avoid hand-to-hand combat in favor of missile weapons (slings, bows, and crossbows), partly from being smaller than many threats but also due to their wings being precious and hard to protect. Daekais also avoid it out of fear. Either may be carrying a knife or dagger as a last resort. Their teeth and claws are also formidable, especially daekais, whose are poisonous.

The page on sorelia has been uploaded. Some highlights:

The sorelia are a corrupted race of the noble karelian species, originating from Ronkainen, the goddess of corruption, reading the passage on karelia from the Book of Creation. Sorelia are physically identical to karelia except for random iris colors. It is impossible to tell them apart except for demeanor, actions, and words. Just as karelia means “night walker,” sorelia means “death walker.”

Sorelian architecture reflects their interest in dark arts, as building are often black, foreboding, and adorned in a ghastly manner. Being well-versed in dark matters and on friendly terms with the god of fear, Everett, has given them little to be afraid of. They are intelligent and quick thinking, which makes their lies sound smooth and natural. Sorelia are often mistaken for karelia and might be asked to help with a supernatural issue, with dire results.

This race is heavily featured in The Ever Fiend.
