Ways of the Seven
The Tangiko are a race of short-statured, clever humanoids that live in the jungles of the Bairiu Peninsula. Tangiko is the name they refer to themselves as; many Valuans also refer to them as gnomes.
Tangiko are on average slightly shorter than the average Valuan halfling. They wear minimal amounts of loose-fitting clothing made from plant fibers and animal skins. Hair is worn long, sometimes braided or swept back into a ponytail. Males often have scruffy facial hair.
Valuans have established several trading posts to exchange goods with the Tangiko. In exchange for the products of civilization such as forged metal, the Tangiko offer valuable spices, medicinal plants, and animal skins.
