Variant Races | New Rules Options for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The races in the Fifth Edition do a pretty good job of bringing balance and flavor to the game. However, they don't make room for a whole lot of variety or special abilities.

Jovian Playable Race | New Player Option for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Another Spelljammer addition (original, mind you!), this one comes from another player who had some ideas on what he wanted the class to do. Basically, the race is sentient gas.

Giff Playable Race | New Player Option for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Ever since they resurfaced in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, Dungeons & Dragons fans have been clamoring for a playable giff race. And well? It's time I delivered that.

Medusa Playable Race | New Player Option for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
