Originally created by the villainous sorceror Guldazar centuries ago, the Stonites are a ‘race’ of semi-sentient creatures of living stone. They are able to communicate with one another in some unknown fashion. There are no males or females and how they reproduce is unknown. Long forgotten, they were rediscovered in recent times when they ‘attacked’ miners who had unwittingly tunneled into their territory. Since then they have appeared sporadically, usually under the control of some evil tyrant or madman bent on world domination. They seem to be drawn to strong leadership obeying instinctually.
