Lyncus Race (5E)

Suggested Price $1.50


  • 1 Player Character race
  • 4 Subraces
  • 3 unique magical items related to the race
  • Detailed history, lore, and cultural notes


Descended from an ancient king, cursed when his selfishness and ego angered a powerful deity, the lyncus live solitary lives in cities of stone and mud along a fertile, subtropical river basin. Equal parts natural, bestial, and magical, lyncus society is unlike that of most any other humanoid race. Some would call them barbaric. Others would call them enlightened. Neither are wrong.

May want to tone down the amount of skills and advantage that they get, though I have yet to test to tell you for sure.

You could compare it to Volo's Guide monsters and they'd be about the same. Especially if you compare with the Half Elf race.

We balanced it pretty carefully against existing content. That said, if anyone runs into problems or has comments while playing the race, we're all ears and would love your feedback!

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.
