Here are the extaminaar, as featured in the FR Sourcebooks The Vilhon Reach and Champions of Ruin.


The members of the ruling house of the city of Hlondeth that have been tainted by yuan-ti blood, the extaminaar are a race that now stretches across the Realms, with members in many cities striving to undertake the agenda of their serpent masters and their house.

The extaminaar are the face of the ruling house to the public of Hlondeth, and are hatched from eggs that grow from serpentine infants into beings that resemble humans with a yellow or olive tinge to their skin. Extaminaar are lighter than humans due to their bones being of a lesser density, and they prefer to keep their hair long.

As an Extaminaar, you have the following aspects -

Ability Score Increase Your Dexterity increases by 2 and your Intelligence increases by 1.
Age Extaminaars reach adulthood at the same age as humans, and typically live to between 60 and 80 years of age.
Size - Extaminaars weigh in the region of 160 pounds on average, and stand between 5ft4 and 6ft5 generally.
Speed your base speed is 30 feet, and you have a swimming speed of 30 feet.
Darkvision Out to 60 feet, you can see in low light conditions as if it were bright light and darkness as if it were dim light. You cannot discern colour in the darkness, just shades of grey.
Resistance to Venom - You have resistance to poison damage, and advantage to saving throws against being poisoned.
Wriggling Out You have advantage on grapple checks made against you, and you can add half your proficiency bonus rounded down to checks to escape the restrained condition.
Serpent Tongue You can communicate simple ideas to snakes, and when dealing with snakes, you can add double your proficiency bonus to Animal Handling checks.
Languages You can speak Common, Yuan-ti and either Abyssal or Draconic.

It is still a little bit boring and weak. I don't know the race but you could give it 1/rest a poisonois snaketongue attack or something.

Again, you made a nice new race :D

It measured 6 on the Musicus scale when I originally converted it from 3.5 to 5e. I bumped up the swim speed to 30ft and added a bit more to the Serpent Tongue feature.

The extaminaar are crossbreeds between the yuan-ti and humans, and were bred partly to be more effective at infiltration of other cities in the Realms. The purebloods (the ones it is implied were not involved in the crossbreeding to create the extaminaar) don't have a poison bite attack, so neither do the extaminaar.

The extaminaar are more human than the pureblood caste of the yuan-ti, who are the ones that infiltrate human lands to gather information and further the goals of the yuan-ti.
