4e Race Compendium

Last post
Well, 4e is here and there are more homebrewed 4e races appearing than there are official ones in the PHB and MM. That being the case, I thought I'd provide a central thread to link all the custom updates and purely original 4e races in the interim. I'll put links in as I see them; if I've missed one that's already here or someone posts a new one, feel free to reply to this thread to let me know.

Thanks to Wizardmon, we have an easy-to-use format for custom races that can save you the trouble of creating your own formatting. If you wish to use it, the template (with a few of my own modifications) is in the spoiler block at the end of this post for easy quoting and copy-pasting. If you want a program that will format everything for you, try the DM's Toolkit, courtesy of Leichenreiter and myself.

-------------------------

Please do not post your races in this thread; post the race writeup in another thread and post a link to it here. I want to reserve this thread solely for a compendium, and not commenting on or reworking custom races.

Good job EL! I hope to see this thread stickied at some point in time!

That being said, I don't suppose you would mind adding my Races of Final Fantasy to the list, would you?
Let your voice be heard! Tell WotC to Publish D&D 4e under the OGL!
Good job EL! I hope to see this thread stickied at some point in time!

Not at all; I said I'd probably miss some, didn't I?

EDIT: Changed the title to simply "4e Race Compendium" since we're not just doing 3e updates anymore.
Nice job, EL

OOO, you added my Nephilim to the list, thanks
Thanks EL. And wiz, I didn't realize you were so busy! Where do you find the time?
Yay, I made the list! :D

Add my vote for a sticky, EL.

[memo to self]Add that nifty formatting from "Races of blah" to my thread.[/memo]
Add my dare to the Wizos to sticky this.
Thanks EL. And wiz, I didn't realize you were so busy! Where do you find the time?

I'm a game-obsessive high school senior without a drivers lisence. I am biding my time until my highschool days are over and 4e comes out. X.X

Thanks, BTW, I guess.

And I thought I was geeky...

So you're one of those WoW kids that WotC is catering to these days, eh? :D
I also have a minor case of Asperger's Syndrome, so that contributes both to obsessiveness and fear of the road. x.x

And I thought I was geeky...

:D
You could certainly say that, since I have played WoW and enjoyed the experience, and completely understand the rationale behind WotC's decision to borrow back some design and play aspects. However, it wouldn't be completely accurate to call me that, because I created my character on there based on a RP concept, and I do not currently play.

Also, I myself do not consider myself to be one of them. I do not refer to Corrin Reedson as an off-tank, as one of my players so eloquently put it, and "DPS" is not in my vocabulary, but "Knowledge(Religion)" is.

Hmmm, that sounds familiar, minus the motor difficulty part... (maybe I should see a shrink one of these days)

And about WoW, it was mostly a joke about you being a high school kid, when most of the people here could be graded by grognardiness. :P
Oh, I know it was a joke! Just another manifestation of my disorder not to indicate my understanding though! lol

Yoha EL! Help me spread around my trendy racial entry formatting! If you don't mind putting this somewhere noticeable, that would be really great! BTW, I am not sure how to put just plain code (the "code" tags failed me), but if you need to copy this code, get it from quoting this post.

It does work quite well, already done using it for my Nephilim.
Yeah I stole it for my Vaati race. Thanks again! :D
Yoha EL! Help me spread around my trendy racial entry formatting! If you don't mind putting this somewhere noticeable, that would be really great! BTW, I am not sure how to put just plain code (the "code" tags failed me), but if you need to copy this code, get it from quoting this post.

Will do. It'll be nice to have a standard boards format for custom stuff before the edition comes out, so we won't have to spend so much time telling people to formate their creations. ;)

Oh, and in case it matters, I'm also a somewhat game-obsessed senior, though I've had too much work the past few months to put up my recent homebrews. Looks like the grognards are being overthrown....

:evillaugh

In an interesting aside, I named the Spitting Felldrake NPC IMC "Grognard." It was a spur of the moment decision, and I had to think of a name fast.
Let your voice be heard! Tell WotC to Publish D&D 4e under the OGL!

looks good.

but leaves me to wonder what if wotc decided to call the new aasimar empyreal?
a mask everyone has at least two of, one they wear in public and another they wear in private.....
I'd be freaked, for one thing!
But, if they want to use any part of the offering, I won't say no, that's for sure.

Specially if you consider that everything in these forums is WotC property. ;)
And just think, Belorin--if WotC uses it, you can claim that you came up with it first, and everyone here will back you up. You might not get a blurb in the book, but you'll be famous here. Maybe. Sort of. ;)
I appreciate the support , but it's highly unlikely. But let me thank you El especially for your excellent thread and wiz for the format May they sticky it soon.

If I recall correctly, they used the name Aasnimar in the upcoming MM - likely only a kludge to keep people from snickering over Aasimar. Frankly, I prefer Empyreal to either of them.

I also hate the word Tiefling. Sounds so ... weenie. That and whenever my wife hears it, she says, "You're playing a what?! hahahahaha!"

I digress.

Au contraire:

"Tiefling" was coined by Wolfgang Baur, when original Planescape designer David "Zeb" Cook asked for a Germanic-sounding word for humans with fiendish blood. Baur derived the name from teufel, or "Devil" in German. The direct translation of tiefling, however, would be "deepling," since tief means "deep." A closer derivation from teufel would be teufling.

So teif is deep, teufel is devil, and the portmanteau "tiefel" would thus suggest a "Devil from the deeps," or a devil from Hell. Taking into account that (A) all devils come from the Hells in the D&D cosmology and (B) "ling" is a suffix meaning a minor or smaller version of the noun preceding it while implying a causal link (ducklings come from ducks, e.g.), tiefling is the perfect word for a D&D creature descended from or created by devils.

This has been your etymological service announcement for the day. :D
I did not know that!

You're welcome. Perhaps I should start a Race Naming, Linguistics, and Etymology thread as well. ;)

Added my own race, the Minotaur.
A bump up to the top page so potential homebrewers can see it!

While I'm posting: This is one of the threads that White-Screen-of-Deaths on me occasionally, so if you put up a race and I don't put it up, it's probably because of that.
Thanks for adding the Vaati! All these races look great. Can't wait for the core books to come out so we can really dig in and do some designing!
Is there a class version of this thread? I think that would be nice.
