View Full Version : 5e Beornings Race

2018-10-22, 07:35 PM
I came up with a possible race. The Beornings. +2 Str and +1 Wis. Medium, 30 ft movement, 60 ft darkvision. Common and one other language. Due to great mental fortitude, +2 against being charmed or frightened. Once per long or short rest, as a bonus action can regain Con modifier + Wis modifier hitpoints. Has powerful build. Also knows the Druidcraft cantrip. I'll come up with more of the descriptuon and "fluff" information and such, but mechanically do you think it's alright?

I have been thinking about removing the hp regeneration.

Björn-ings, you say? I'm imagining a society of vikings where everyone one is named Björn. Even the women.

Have you seen Adventures in Middle Earth (http://cubicle7.co.uk/our-games/adventures-in-middle-earth/)?

A beautifully thought through game - uses the 5e engine to do Middle Earth between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It strips out the D&D classes and races, and replaces them with the right sort of thing for the setting. Beornings are covered in great detail.

I've seen it, but haven't tried using it
