It's your race! Be as creative as you'd like! An honor bound headstrong race, I can see them either getting along really well with Orcs or butting heads xD


So, I guess first and third are possibilities.

I am fine with either or any sort of change really.

We could do a bit of both. Maybe partially combine the two by making it like Nikita and her troop were sent to escort Nivis and a few of his trusted advisers. But a few days after they left they encountered a large hunting party of Wicked an they had to flee or they would lose everyone in the ensuing fight. I think that would be a good way to build some story and trust between the two. What do you think?

YES! Idea's for Minotaur race is now ongoing. I'll fill you in as I come up with more ideas for their past that has been mostly demolished by the Elven Empire.

Ooh! Yes! I like that!

Best of both worlds! What sort if environment would the tribe have taken a home to? Forest? Swamp?

Minotaur's (In my sweet little head cannon.) used to live pretty much anywhere as they roamed searching for new lands. They were very much the Vikings of this world, except they didn't often sail too far lands as the lands that made up Hestia were so expansive and full of different peoples.

The current tribe/last of the Minotaur's has taken up root in a mountain forest towards the north east of the continent. (If that is OK with your world geography.) They currently number 94 Minotaur in total, meaning they are very much the last and an incredibly rare sight to see outside of their mostly closed off tribe. Even with Nivis' advancements to teach the Minotaur to change with the world, many remain in the territories of this last tribe.

Nomadic is something very appealing and the geography is fine! North East is very realistic honestly xD

Hey since we're sharing lore guess I can share some things about the Ifrits when they were still around.


There were five in total:

The Ifrit of Land.

The Ifrit of Sky.

The Ifrit of the Sea.

The Ifrit of the Abyss.

The Ifrit of Storms.

Tbh I was kind of thinking that some select tribes, in the old days used to revere some of the Ifrit. Which is why some of their items were blessed by them. Most likely They'd have worshiped the Land and Storms, with maybe a few tribes worshiping the Ifrit of the Abyss who was seen as an evil deity in the eyes of the Minotaur. (Good? Bad?)

That can works wouldn't be surprised that Minotaur tribes worshipped Ifrits and they definitely wouldn't be the first or only race in the old days to have done so.

The Ifrit of Abyss would be closest to decay and death so it's a very likely interpretation
