    Default 3.5 - Badger Related Request

    Hello everybody. I would like to ask you lovely people here at Homebrew to please make a badgerfolk and a werebadger. I know it's a bit of an odd request, but I've seen catfolk, kenku, lizardmen and numerous other animal humanoids, but none of which really caught my interest.
    Thank you to anybody and everybody who takes up the job.

    Edit: I know about the Wildren and have read every bit of information on them in the Planar Handbook, but they don't have the feel I'm going for.

    Not sure exactly what you're looking for, flavor-wise, but I also love badgers and agree that there needs to be a badgerfolk race. Here's my initial attempt at a racial stat block. Let me know what you think.

    Badgerfolk
    • +2 Con, -2 Cha. Badgerfolk are tenacious and enduring, but their solitary lifestyles leave them ill-suited for interpersonal interaction
    • Medium humanoid: As Medium creatures, badgerfolk have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size
    • Badgerfolk base land speed is 30 feet. They also have a burrow speed of 5 feet. A burrowing badgerfolk leaves behind a useable 5-foot diameter tunnel unless the soil she is burrowing through is very loose.
    • Low-Light Vision: A badgerfolk can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. She retains the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.
    • Natural Attacks: A badgerfolk has two claw attacks she can use as natural weapons, dealing 1d4 points of damage. A badgerfolk wielding a weapon can attack with her claw as a secondary natural attack, taking a -5 penalty to her attack roll and applying one half of her Strength modifier as a bonus to damage.
    • Rage (Ex): A badgerfolk that takes damage in combat can choose to enter into a rage on her next turn, clawing and biting madly until either it or its opponent is dead. She gains a +2 bonus to Strength and Constitution. Once she enters this state, she must succeed on a Will save (DC = damage dealt by the attack that spurred her rage) to end the rage. She must also succeed on a Will save to do anything other than attack the creature that damaged her. A badgerfolk can use this ability a total number of rounds per day equal to her Constitution modifier, broken up into one round increments (assuming she is able to make her Will save). The damage that spurs this ability cannot be self-inflicted.

    I'm trying to keep it to the strong side of +0 LA and am fairly comfortable so far, though I haven't done as much work with races as others on the boards. I tried to get in most of the characteristics that D&D badgers have. Thoughts?

    Tome of Horrors II has official write up of badgerfolk (see Ryven).

    There's this: http://furrydnd.tribe.net/thread/fa8...2-ff36251241fd

    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.

    I quite like this
    Hadn't expected the burrow thing, but that's rather cool. How would one do a check to see if they know there's something burrowing underneath them though?

    Thank you, you've done great.
