    Default What CAN humans breed with?

    It seems humans can breed with just about anything. So, other than the obvious ones, what kind of half humans have you encountered, either from some kind of really obscure sourcebook or something your DM created.

    For example, we once encounted an entire village of half-sharks.

    Almost anything, apparently.
    I'm the author of the Alex Verus series of urban fantasy novels. Fated is the first, and Book #10 in the series, Fallen, is out as of September 2019. For updates, check my blog!

    Less than what dragons can breed with. So, no half-human oozes.

    While it isn't WoTC offical, there was a nice table in the BoEF (Book of Erotic Fantasy). It is open game content, but even still I will not quote anything here. As far as I could tell, humans could breeed with almost as many things as dragons.

    My favorite human crossbreed? Dwarf + Human = Unholy abomination that cannot live above ground.

    half-farspawn just seems as strange as you can get, the template can be found in Lords of Madness. Nothing like humans with tentacles.

    The Book of Erotic Fantasy by Valar Project Inc. has that nice cross-breeding table on page 50. Here is the cliff-notes list for humans. Celestial, Centaur (maybe) Dragon, Dyrad, Elf, Fiend, Giant, Half-Elf, Half-Orc, Merfolk/Triton, Nymph, Orge, Orc, Satyr, and Sprite.

    Well, obviously, Elves, Orcs and Ogres.

    Then just start looking at all the Half- templates that can be applied to humans: Fiend, Celestial, Dragon, Vampire, Troll, Fey, Elemental...

    Just on a sidenote, how many human subraces are there? Illumian, Neanderthal, Karsite, Mongrelfolk, Sea Kin, Skarn, Rilkin, Underfolk...

    According to the book of erotic fantasy...Centaurs, Celestials, Dragons, Dryads, Elves, Fiends, Giants, half-elves, half-orcs, orcs, Merfolk, Nymhs, Ogres, Satyrs and Sprites. Oh, and humans sometimes.
    Nymphs and dragons get everything in the table, while celestials and fiends are barred only from each other.

    Isn't there another third party, bastards and bloodlines, that tried to encapsulate the fecundity of humans with X?

    Bastards and Bloodlines by Green Ronin Publishing. Page 6 explains the fecundity part by basically supporting the "Humans as a young race" fantasy argument. This book does have some interesting cross and half breeds though.

    B&B has all sorts of odd pairings...Blink Dog/Halfling, Gnome/Umber Hulk, Halfling/Harpy, Elf/Unicorn. I think most of them are "a wizard did it" rather than actually breeding. At least, I hope so.

    I've toyed with, personally, the idea that Humans aren't really a race. This is why they have no racial diety, and yet crop up essentially everywhere.

    They are what happens when you muddy the genepool sufficiently.

    A human is already a half-most-things, so they already have a shared biological basis in ways that other things might not.

    Well, the D&D ones look more like half Elf and half Horse, to me at least...

    Perhaps we need a half-human template...?

    There's no human racial deity in core, but there is Zarus (RoD). And there's one in Greyhawk...can't remember his name. The hopping prophet. Has the unlikely portfolio of human supremacy, and amphibians! maybe that's where Bullywugs come from! He is noteworthy for granting the War domain, and having a favored weapon of glaive.

    I started a similar topic a few months ago asking for the strangest cross breed players have run across. Mine was a half human half centaur and I couldnít figure what was worse the father being the centaur (ouch) or the mother.

    In my settings I explain humanís ability to breed with everything by having humans the progenerator race of all hominid races; it really ticks of the elves when they find out.

    Sometimes, not often but sometimes, humans will occasionally breed with other humans.

    Isn't that the guy who frowns on interracial marriage between humans and members of other races? The one who lives in perpetual disappointment?

    I'd argue that the unicorn mount is the one exception to the Vow of Chastity for that prestige class.

    There's someone on the boards with a joke in their sig that goes something like this, from the 'racial insults' thread:

    Human: "Hey, elf, you look like a girl!"
    Elf: "You're a human, everything must look like a girl to you."
    Human: "What does that mean?"
    Elf: "Half-elf, half-orc, half-dragon, half-celestial..."
    Human: "Shut up."
    Elf: "Half-elemental, half-fiend, half-giant, half-troll, half-vampire..."
    Human: "SHUT! UP!"
    Elf:...
    Human:...
    Elf: "Centaurs."

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    Just under the necessary amount to be considered "a small fraction" of the number of Elf subraces. Some of those (like Illumian) are a product of circumstance, not interbreeding. Then there's the Mongrelfolk. They don't tell you how to make a mongrelfolk, but it may be safe to assume we're dealing with multiple generations of squick.

    Also, what book talks about Human/Dwarf hybrids? I haven't seen that anywhere.
