(Minotaur monk/paladin)

Any minotaur who has one level of monk or one level of paladin is considered to be an “Ironskin”. It is an honourary title bestoyed upon all minotaur monks and paladins. Higher level Ironskins often become the Ironskin prestige class. Ironskins believe that the only way to true freedom is to forsake weapons and armour, and live life honourably out in the open. Some minotaurs even forsake magic. This doesn’t mean they won’t use the occasionally weapon or bit of magic, simply that they “prefer” not to.

Ironskins never attack unless they are attacked first, unless an innocent is at danger. They live their lives in relative poverty and roam the land, seeking to do good deeds. An Ironskin rarely retires from duty until they have become venerable, at which point they take up teaching younger generations of Ironskins.

Ironskins often wear very little. A loincloth or kilt is common. They are resistant to the cold and so rarely wear heavier clothes. They survive by living on plants, nuts and fish, and are more or less vegetarians (they will eat meat if offered it, they don’t want to be rude).
