Racial Variants
« on: July 28, 2005, 06:27:58 PM »
Johan detailed a "Savage Gnome" Racial Variant in the "Character Information" board. This was a collaborative effort from both of us. If anyone would like to use Racial and class Variations for a character (current characters notwithstanding) discuss it with me and we'll work something out.

This Savage Gnome variant brings up an interesting point in the game: Environment. Races native to climates and geographies would certainly adapt to those conditions. Just look at how diversified the human race is.

D&D covers Racial Variants in the "Unearthed Arcana". However, some of the variations (like the Gnome) I think fall somewhat short (heh, Gnome...short) of their potential. This being the case, a player that is creative enough to make fitting variations is welcome to do so.

Another interesting racial twist detailed in the Unearthed Arcana is "Bloodlines" (pg.19).

One should never underestimate the stimulation of eccentricity
