Half Demon Race

Suggested Price $0.50

A new race to be used with Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. The Half Demon is based off of Youkai and animals than the normal abyssal demons you are used to in D&D. With great natural abilities but drawbacks to using them and a weakness to purification, the Half Demon is a high risk, high reward race. Will you stay in the shadows of the world or fight back and make your name known? The choice is up to you.

I plan to use feedback to balance my race more. Any and all feedback or comments are welcome.

Version 1.01: The Blood Destruction feature has been balanced out more with increased DC's.

Version 1.02: Fixed the claw attacks so that they count as magical in order to overcome resistance and immunity.

Version 1.03: Languages were updated and changed.

Version 1.04 and 1.05: Required savings throws for Blood Destruction were changed slightly and spelling errrors were fixed.

Version 1.06: The entire file was changed with more information on the race. Spelling errors were fixed and saving throws were simplified for Blood Destructuion. Blood Destruction's increased claw and unarmed strike damage were separated.

Version 1.07: Just some minor spelling errors and wording changes.

Version 1.08: Changed wording throughout the document and Abyssal is now optional for languages in order to balance the race more.

Version 1.09, 1.10 and 1.11: Mortal Blood Camouflage (Advantage) was changed to Well Lied (Proficient). Mortal Blood Low Light Vision was changed to Darkvision. Purification damage was increased in order to balance the race more. Abyssal was added back as a main language. Half Demons now have the same ability score as humans. Slight changes to Age. While Blood Destruction is active you can no longer cast spells. Constitution saving throws were also increased in order to balance the ability more. An Ink Friendly version was added.

Version 1.12: Claw Attack are not considered magical now. A saving throw for Blood Destruction was removed and the DC now increases by 3 instead of 2. Blood Destruction is now called Blood Frenzy.

Version 1.13: Blood Frenzy was changed so unarmed strike damage scaled with a characters unarmed strike damage. So now monks do their unarmed strike damage instead of the normal 1d4 when Blood Frenzy is active.

Version 1.14: Purification damage cannot be reduced now. Abyssal was removed as a language. Blood Frenzy Constitution save DCs were adjusted by 1.

Version 1.15: Blood Frenzy DCs were switched for Mortal and Demon Blood. Purification damage for Demon Blood was changed to 2d10. Using your Claws now allows you to make a second attack as a bonus action

Version 1.16: Blood Frenzy saving throws were switched completely. This was a mistake by me when I forgot to switch all of the DCs instead of just the starting DC. Wording of "extra" in Blood Frenzy was changed to "additional". Wording for Mortal Blood Purification was changed to something clearer.

Version 1.17: Claws are no longer finesse and wording was changed to add strength to the attack.

Version 1.2: Natural Hatred was taken out as it ended up being more for flavor. I debated given disadvantage on Persuasion rolls to anyone hostile to demons but figured that was up to the DM. Changes to languages to make wording clearer and better specified how it works. Also made it clearer that Abyssal could be switched out for Youkyn. Added thanks to the people who have helped me in balancing this race.

Thanks to The Homebrewery and GMBinder.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
