Tasloi are humanoid jungle-dwellers whose race is thought to be thousands of years old. While very quick and nimble between the trees, tasloi are easily dazzled in bright sunlight, preferring to stay below the jungle canopy. Despite this, tasloi do possess low-light vision. They speak their own language of Tasloi but may also speak Common or Sylvan.
Tasloi are 3-feet tall with gold, cat-like eyes; their green skin is thinly covered in coarse, black hair. They have a stooped, crouching posture and their knuckles drag on the ground when they walk.
Tasloi live in small groups consisting of several families. Their lairs are usually a series of large trees interconnected by vines and ropes, constructed on platforms high in the jungle canopy. On the ground below the platforms they sometimes raise dire rats or spider eaters as beasts of burden and mounts. If the village does have any spider eaters, these beasts are reserved as steeds for the most powerful tasloi in the settlement.
Tasloi normally attack from above, dropping from the treetops onto unwary opponents. If they do manage to gain surprise, they use nets to ensnare adversaries, otherwise attacking with their short swords and javelins; always using hit-and-run tactics in order to wear down tough foes, they thus avoid any stand-up fights. Tasloi always try to abscond with the body, saving food for the group.
