Humanoids are creatures with the basic shape of a human: two arms, two legs, a torso, and a head. Most humanoids do not have any inherent supernatural or spell-like abilities. Humanoids usually have an intelligence, a language, and a society of some sort. Humanoids can range in size, though they are usually sizes small to large.
