Smelves, enormously beschnozzed little guys, came to Oith from the realm of Middle Oith during the Time of the Flush, fleeing the tyranny of their brutal horcish adversaries. This proved to be a bad decision, since the horcs just followed them, but it’s over and they’re both here now.
The average smelf is a short, slender, green skinned fellow (of fellete) with a gigantically disproportionate honker. Smelves are extremely proud of their prodigious proboscises, often polishing them with earwax and scented oils and adorning them with tattoos and jewelry. Not only is a smelf’s nose the decorative focal point of her countenance, it’s also the source of many of her special talents.
Not surprisingly, smelves have a very powerful sense of smell…
