Yellow Martian

The Yellow Martians live at the North Pole, shielded from the world by a great barrier wall of ice which entirely surrounds their territory. The only means of entrance is through The Carrion Caves, which are every bit as unpleasant as the name suggests. Air travel over the barrier is discouraged through the use of a great magnetic pillar called "The Guardian of the North," which draws fliers of all sizes inexorably into their doom as they collide with the massive structure. Their cities are domed hothouses which keep out the cold, but outdoors they favor orluk furs and boots. Physically, they are large and strong, and then men wear bristling black beards as a rule. They are the only race of martians to use shields, favoring a concave buckler attached to the wrist while they fight with hooked and straight swords. They show no evidence of using radium rifles, but instead maintain the use of javelins as their primary ranged weapon.

Yellow Martian Weapons: When attacking with a the Yellow Martian trademark weapons, a hooked and straight sword, he rolls each attack separately but ignores the multi-action penalty.
