    Default Recreation of Races (WIP) (PEACH)

    Spoiler: Basic Lore
    Show


    In the beginning there was nothing but raw primal energy.

    From the energy the four core races emerged upon the plane of existence.

    Gods found the material plane, liked it, and decided to deal with the races born of the material plane.

    Devils were the next ones to find the material plane, liked it, and decided to deal with the races born of the material plane.

    Both Gods and Devils faught over control. Many of the mortals died. No one is sure who thought of it first but a heaven and hell was made to collect the souls of the denizens of the material plane. These souls are changed by the energies of the very planes and the souls become celestial and fiends.

    As the gods and devils continue to fight mortal souls found their way into other planes of existence. These souls being changed is what gives us the genasi, elementals, and other half and full blooded races that come from different planes. These souls were absorbed into the plane and reborn after being changed by the energies.

    Much time had passed.

    Before either the gods or devils realized it, the multiverse was populated by the 4 core races, aubraces, and alternative races. Along with them were countless non-sentient creatures and abominations.

    Members of each side (god/devils) of the conflict started splitting up, some joining forces with others while others going into seclusion to obtain their goals. Instead of getting a share of the souls to become their followers many felt that having a broader influence was the better option. Why have 1/10th the souls when you could have more?

    A battle almost destroyed the multiverse, this forced the gods and devils to make a pact. They could not openly fight anymore, it was too risky. In their place they would send agents to do their work for them. Self preservation is a hell of a motivator.

    Each core race and template will get their own lore, background and current events.

    The alignment of gods are LN, LG, N, NG, CN, and CG.
    The alignment of the devils are LN, LE, N, NE, CN, and CE.
    Gods and Devils are pretty much the same "race" more or less. Mortals have named them as they see each side of the divinity war.

    Alternative Races





    Spoiler: Mutt (Half-Human)
    Show

    Greater Racial Feature
    Bonus Feat: Gain a bonus feat at level 1.


    Spoiler: Aasimar (Aasimar or Celestial)
    Show

    Lesser Racial Feature


    Greater Racial Feature









    When you pick a race you gain a primary and secondary feature. When you pick a subrace yoh must swap out one or both racial abilities. If you take an alternative race you get a feature to replace either your primary or secondary feature. Whenever you choose a subrace your secondary racial save choice changes to that of the subrace. A Human (Halfling) would have A primary racial save of "any" and a secondary racial save of charisma.


    Alternative Races help you make entirely new races or hybrid races depending on your choice and DM approval. When you take an alternative race you may choose to be a half creature or a full blood.

    All sentient races in the multiverse is some combination of above. Each will get an updated lore.

    Fiends aren't just their own thing, each was a member of a core race who went to hell, was tortured, and then changed (due to evil energies) into what they are now. Succubi could have been any core race (with or without a template) that underwent the process to become a succubi ... This would add a succubi template (and take off any they had).

    Eventually I'll add more templates. I don't want to deal with certain types just yet. Vampirism would be a disease for now and not a PC option.

    An example is as follows.

    Spoiler: Human
    Show

    Size: Medium
    Speed: 30'

    Primary Racial Save: Any

    Skillfull: Gain two skills from your class list. Additionally you gain proficiency in one tool of your choice.

    Feat: Gain a bonus feat at first level

    Spoiler: Subraces
    Show
    Spoiler: Halfling
    Show

    Size: Small (using weapons with reach impose disadvantage)
    Speed: 25'

    Secondary Racial Save: Cha

    Nimble: You may move through the spaces of creatures larger than you. This replaces the skilled feature.

    Lucky: Whenever you roll a 1 on an attack roll or saving throw you may reroll but must take the new result. This replaces the bonus feat from the Human base race.









    Racial saving throw proficiency: You may switch out a class saving throw for your racial saving throw proficiency. Primary saves are Con, Dex, and Wis. Secondary saves are Str, Int, and Cha. When you switch a Saving Throw proficiency you can only switch them with Saving throws from the same group.

    Elf
    Primary:Dexterity
    Secondary: Intelligence or as subrace/alternative race

    Dwarf
    Primary: Constitution
    Secondary: Strength or as subrace/alternative race

    Human
    Primary: Any
    Secondary: Any or As subrace/alternative race

    Gnome
    Primary: Constitution
    Secondary: Intelligence or As subrace/alternative race

    A Gnome, Human, or Dwarf wizard could switch out their Wisdom saving throw proficiency for Constitution saving throw proficiency making them more resilient than Elven wizards.

    Note: Concentration works mainly the same except whenever concentration is broken you must succeed on a spell casting ability saving throw versus your own spell DC to keep the spell under control. A Cleric who casts spirit guardians and can lose concentrations attempts a Wisdom Saving Throw versus their spell casting DC. On a success they keep the spell, on a save they lose the spell.

    Spoiler: Variant Rule: 4e Style Saves
    Show


    Each class is proficient with two saving throws. Each race has a primary saving throw that you may substitute one of your class saving throws with your racial saving throw.

    Fortitude: When proficient with Fortitude saves you take the better of the Strength or Constitution modifier and add it to your proficiency bonus. This applies to all effects that ask for a strength or Constitution save.

    Reflex: When proficient with Reflex saves you take the better of the Dexterity or Intelligence modifier and add it to your proficiency bonus. This applies to all effects that ask for a dexterity or intelligence save that rely on physically moving.

    Will: When proficient with Will saves you take the better of the Wisdom or Charisma modifier and add it to your proficiency bonus. This applies to all effects that ask for a wisdom or charisma save. Some intelligence saves belong here now.
