Notes Skiapodes originate in Ethiopia. They have come to Mythic Constantinople following a diaspora caused by the Arab invasions of their homelands. Skiapodes have just one leg, which terminates in a single huge foot, easily a metre in length. They otherwise appear similar to Europeans save for a rich brown tan and curly dark hair. Skiapodes are remarkably agile jumpers, and can achieve speeds comparable to a two-legged human, covering ground with mighty bounds. Their name (which means ‘shadow foot’) comes from their propensity to lie on their backs and use their huge foot as a shade against the sun and a shield against attacks. Skiapodes are utterly devoted to their spouses and children; infidelity is virtually unknown in Skiapod society. They believe in a strict hierarchy of life, with things with many legs at the bottom along with the no-legs, up to quadrupeds, then humanoids and birds, and with the Skiapodes at the very pinnacle. They treat birds and other two legged creatures as equal to humans, and find eating them as unconscionable as eating human flesh. Civilised culture - Ethiopia. Their huge foot makes rolls to resist exposure from heat one skill grade easier if they can use it to provide shade. When jumping, Athletics rolls are one skill grade easier. Use this modifier to Athletics when determining how far a Skiapod can jump. The leathery skin on the sole of the foot provides cover like a heater shield, but only when the Skiapod is lying on his back.
