The Elf MC also gets a boost in cunning! All of the races grant some kind of stat bonus as well as different reactions from other characters.
Cool, let me know if you have other questions about the lore/races! As the story goes on obviously and you actually begin to meet people from those races, more information about their cultures will be revealed in both the plot and the codex!
It depends on if the wolf could be saved or if it was definitely going to die–also what the reason the hunters had for shooting it. If the wolf attacked them or threatened their livestock/quarry she wouldn’t exact revenge on the hunters. If it was beyond saving she’d put it out of its misery. If it could be saved she’d help it recover and soothe it. If they shot it for no other reason than sport she’d confront them about it, but she wouldn’t kill them or engage in battle. Tallys has a strong self-preservation instinct and doesn’t typically choose to be combative unless it’s in the moment and she could save the wolf right now.
That said, I believe Tangriel is the superior name, and here’s why:
It sounds vaguely similar to the chief deity of the Central Asian steppe people, Tengri. While he is the primary creator deity, he also functions as a death god, because he created humans to die, which I haven’t found any explanations for, but Vivek mentions that Vartageth did not accept weakness, and life in the steppes were harsh…
Just my thoughts. All the names you suggested are acceptable and more importantly, easy to read, so any of them would be a good choice.
Tengri was imagined as a goose.
I’m not saying this was mean to be—actually, that’s exactly what I’m saying. What if all these geese that make it into the compound are really just emissaries of the-archmage-formerly-known-as-Vartageth trying to help but they keep getting killed???
