View Full Version : [D&D Next] Aasimar. Thoughts?

I like Aasimar for fluff reasons but there is no mention of them in the playtest package, just their dark counterparts Tieflings.
I thought I'd take a stab at designing Aasimar stats by making them a mirror of the Tieflings as presented in DD5. I'd love to get some thoughts:


Ability score adjustment: +1 to Wisdom and Charisma
Size: Medium
Speed: 30 feet.
Low-light vision: You can see in dim light as well as you do in bright light.
Heavenly Resistance: You have resistance to radiant damage. (my concern with this is that radiant damage is less common than fire damage, which Tieflings get a resistance to. Maybe make it Radiant AND Necrotic?)
Divine sacrifice: You can lend some of your own health to an injured creature. With a touch you can use up some of your own hit points to heal the creature by the same amount. The maximum amount equals your Wisdom score.
After you use this trait you can't do so again until you have completed a short rest or a long rest.
Languages: You can speak, read and write Common and Celestial.

This is pretty good!

I myself would make it so they got +1 to either Wisdom or Charisma, and resistance to only radiant damage. That's just me.

Otherwise, good job!

Well Tieflings get a plus to Intelligence and Charisma.

But thanks.
