New Character Races

In addition to the standard races, I am opening the door to some experimental races.


Rana--"Frogkin"--this race is a biped frog/toad creature ranging in size from a diminutive 3' tall Frogkin to a 5' tall and broad shouldered Thug Toad. Frogkin make great swashbucklers and thieves (great hoppers). Thug Toads are often hired as mercenaries for unscrupulous nobles.
Rana can hop as far as 30ft to attack, adding +1 to hit and inflicting +2 to damage. Because their skin color changes to match their surroundings, they have a 75% chance not to be noticed when waiting in ambush.

They are excellent swimmers.

Rana may be of any alignment.

Armor: Their hopping distance is halved if they wear heavy armor or if encumbered.

Rana are +2 to saves vs cold based attacks, -2 to save vs heat based attacks.

Thugtoads may be fighters or thieves. As a fighter they may advance to the 6th level, 7th level for Str of 16, and 8th level for Str of 17+. As a thief, there is no limit to their advancement.

They can speak in common but with a croaking voice.


Mantodean--"Mantis Men"--insectoid creatures, 5' tall, intelligent, four arms...weird...but FOUR ARMS!

Pendrian--humans with fey blood in their ancestry, not like half elves, more like humans, but with some innate magic ability.
All Pendrian have +1 save vs magic, all can cast minor magic in the form of cantrips. All Pendrian each know one cantrip, which they may cast at will.

If an individual has a 13+ in any two of INT, WIS, or CHR they gain an additional cantrip. If they have a 13+ in all three scores, they will know a 1st level spell that they can cast once per day in addition to the cantrips. All cantrips can be cast at will, the 1st level spell may be cast once per day. Pendrians that have these innate spells may cast them while wearing armor. If a Pendrian becomes a magic user, he must abide by the rules for spellcasting for all subsequent spells. That is, no armor can be worn to cast any other memorized spells.
Pendrians are different than other humans. They are often considered as Elf Kin and are treated poorly at times by those that disdain elves. The hatred orcs feel for elves is also carried over to Pendrian. Dwarves, though not openly hostile, will not be favorably inclined towards Pendrian.

Zephros, the winged folk

Modifications--class-any but level restriction based on prime ability score 8th for 18, 7th for 17, 6th for 16 or less, armor restriction-(for classes that allow armor) leather and shield
