The Imps, despised and loathed by everyone, are mostly found at the fringes
of Midgaardian civilization. At least that is true for the common incarnations
of this race, the lesser and minor imps. Some of the more distant relatives
are quite secretive - the reason for this, as most Midgaardian's will testify -
is most likely their fear to face up to any proper work or fight.
In rare circumstances Imps seem do be struck down by an odd kind of disease,
causing an extreme form of metamorphosis. Some claim that this is not an
illness, but a voluntary action. Either way, during this process the
appearance and abilities of the Imp are completely transformed - but surely
not always to the better.
This is an evolutionary race. They can go through radical changes at the
listed levels once they decide to evolve and have aquired the necessary
Continued growth without evolving into a new form will become harder
and harder once beyond the suitable size, until it becomes completely
impossible. Similar, there is no shortcut through the process of
growth, every inch of the way has to be gone.
Due to the innate curse of Imps in their various forms they will never
be able to follow the path of priesthood.
Another distinct kind of Imps are known to steal gear from other
travellers. Those creatures are known as Gear Imps, and have their
own separate story.
