Long-limbed and proud in bearing and manner both, ankeri are hooved humanoids whose heads resemble regal gazelles with sweeping horns. Their skin is coated with a dense short pelt of dusty fawn picked out in dense black markings and facial stripes, and both sexes bear dark, ribbed, wide-curving horns with wickedly sharp tips. Their desert-like colours are -- regardless of actual material used -- set off by clothing and ornaments of white and gold. Though not a caste-based society ankeri value rank and prestige, and will invoke honour duels with the least of provocations.

Ankeri prefer to fight with curved sabre-like blades that inflict 1-8 hit points of damage, or else will arm themselves with long stabbing spears. For every six ankeri there will be a 1+5 Hit Dice duelist; and the clanlord is always an ankeri of 2 Hit Dice who fights as a 4 HD creature and wields two blades.

Snagged and one may show up as a librarian-sorcerer in one of my Death & Teaparties games.
