    Default The Outback Campaign Setting

    This is the Outback Campaign Setting; where the southern hemisphere is the northern hemisphere, summer is winter, spring is autumn and drop bears bear drops. It'd be awesome if it was a collaborative project as well.




    Outback Elves

    __Medium: As Medium creatures, outback elves have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
    __Outback elven base land speed is 30 feet. Given their genial, laid-back nature, Outback elves ambulate at a rather accommodating land speed of 20 feet.
    __1 extra feat at 1st level and 4 extra skill points at 1st level as per Humans.
    __Immunity to non-magical fear
    __+2 racial bonus on saving throws against poison
    __+2 racial bonus on Survival and Sleight of Hand checks
    __Confounding Language: an outback elf may confuse others and obfuscate meaning through use of Outback slang; "ya drongo!," "Onya, mate!" "He's got a few kangaroos loose in the top paddock, fair dinkum" "Fair suck of the sauce bottle, mate" "programmatic specificity"
    __Propensity for Abbreviation: Melbourne Cricket Ground>MCG>G; this is a display of affection rather than belittlement
    __Names: Angie, Lizzie, Burgo, Johnno, Bazza, Mazza, Shazza, Dazza, Wozza, Loz
    __Alignment: Larrikin (Chaotic Neutral); worships Larrikin, a humorous deity who mocks others and flouts social conventions
    __Weapon Proficiency: Outback elves receive the Martial Weapon Proficiency feats for the cricket bat and/or longsword as bonus feats
    __Favored Class: Any; rangers have kangaroos and koalas as animal companions, wizards may have pygmy possums and parrots as familiars

    I don't have much to contribute, except that the map above is amazing.

    Confounding Language needs crunch.
    Propensity for Abbreviation needs some suggestion of a game effect, or needs to be moved to the fluff section.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    What if Confounding Language forced a confusion effect if a Will DC check at 10 + 1/2 HD + Charisma modifier was failed?
    Well, it may be an obsessive-compulsive thing, or it could be a cultural thing. How about ruling it thusly, the elf gains a +2 bonus on Diplomacy checks provided he uses affectionate diminutives; failure on the other hand, imposes a -2 penalty on Concentration checks. Other than that, it should be moved to the fluff section.

    Hell yes.
    It's sharks that shot lasers out of their eyes from which shoot more lasers and from which shoot yet more still.

    And must wear budgie smugglers for added brain bleach; I'll let you wiki that yourself.

    Come to think of it, a land populated by animals that are either highly venomous or strong enough to kill a grown man with minimal blows sounds like the typical D&D campaign setting.

    Very powerful, but it made me laugh... maybe through in another few bonuses to that (ability score boost to a mental stat?) and make them LA +1
