> So... Do Orlanthis look like Northern Europeans, or can I devise any skin and hair colour for them? I am more particularly interested (as always) by Umathings.

No, the Orlanthi do not look like Northern Europeans. Just go to your copy of Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes, and turn to page 22. Assuming you have temporarily misplaced your copy, here's the pertinent text:

"The Orlanthi are a hardy people with black, brown, or reddish hair, and olive skin. Their eyes are green, brown, grey or orange. Men and women grow their hair long; men often grow beards and mustaches. Women's hair is usually uncovered and can be worn loose, braided or tied up in a bun. Women and, to a lesser extent, men, use kohl and other pigments to outline their eyes and lips. Both genders are tattooed with markings of clan, cult initiation and other symbols of magical importance."
