The City of Lanterns
D’ziriaks are strange natives of the Plane of Shadow, looking like a multi-hued giant termite with a vaguely humanoid face and two humanoid like appendages capable of manipulating objects. The D’ziriaks carapace glows in a vast array of colors and the buzz in a high pitched clicking language that humanoid ears weren’t meant to comprehend. They do seem to be able to understand spoken languages, as well as mastering the dark elven sign language and mainly communicate that way to humanoids.
In Balefire the D’ziriaks live within a vast organically grown series of towers known locally as “the Hill” or the “Mound”.
