Comments: humanoid of ovine origin. Large version of the classical satyr though the head resembles more of a big horn sheep then a goat. A matt of hair covers the torso. The horns of the male are larger then those of the female. They have the remanent of a tail. The legs end in hooves. Their primary occupation is sheep husbandry. Most every thing they need can be derived from their flocks with the excption of metal items. Renown for their woven garments and items made of horn, trade has become a lucrative side activity.
As the Eriphiads have expanded from their traditional habitat of the mountains to the surrounding foothills they have had to compete for prime grazing areas with plain dwellers making a similar migration. While perminent settlements located in their mountanious homeland exist, most are the semi permenant camps of a nomadic people. The established areas in the mountains serve as sources of law, government and religious cerimony. For a nomadic people they have a strong respect for central authority.
