They’d planted churches among the Mongols, Turks, and Chinese. Their outreach to the children of the Mongol elite had proven especially effective. Then he brought the conversation back round to his embassy. Christianity was favored in the Mongol realm of Persia.

Vanara regularly trade with the City-States and while a rare sight, the monkey folk are generally tolerated. Vanara have a well deserved reputation as tricksters who enjoy tweaking the noses of authority figures, the greedy, the criminal, and generally Unpleasant folk and some vanara have become folk heroes among the poor and common folk. In cities where such unpleasant people run things vanara are persecuted while more liberal and good-aligned cities are sometimes home to small communities of vanara (particularly adventurers). Vanara PCs gain +2 Dexterity, have Low Light Vision, Agile (have Athletic or Acrobatic proficiency), and have a prehensile tail (may hold an object as a place-holder but not wield a weapon with it). They also gain advantage on Climbing checks and have a Climbing speed equal to their Walking Speed. Vanara are roughly 5 foot in height but many appear shorter because of their partially stooped walking stance. They tend towards Chaotic Neutral and live about 60 to 80 years. The Vanara honour the various Hindu deities but consider Hanuman their chief deity; the fact that the avatar of Hanuman, now Monkey, still visits them also honour them though Monkey often travels in disguise even while visiting his people (sometimes even in his “crazy old human martial arts master” form). Their own native tongue, Kana, sounds similar to monkey calls, howls, and noises to the unenlightened but is rather nuanced and tonal. Fortunately most vanara are fluent in Malatran and the Trade language of Kara-Tur.
