D&D News with Greg Tito.

Discover RPG Twitch Stream (9/4/2019)

Grazilaxx’s Guide to Ancestry provides a new and innovative way to use “race” in your 5e games. No longer do you need to settle for the restrictive language of race and tethered ability score increases! 

This product provides the following:

  • Removes inflexible Race restrictions, instead giving characters a customizable, modular Ancestry.

  • Removes ability score increases from Ancestry/Race, with options to place them using Modified Distribution, Backgrounds, Classes, or Feats.

  • Rebalances all ancestries with a Point Buy system (inheritances) for features.

  • Provides easy mechanics for half-races.

  • Provides all features for ancestries from the Player’s Handbook, Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes, Elemental Evil, Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide, Volo’s Guide to Monsters, Eberron (including Dragonmarks), Ravnica, and Tortle.

Check out these Expansions!

hi there! first of all, i absolutely love this product. im so stoked that the weirdness of races is being phased out by the community, and it makes things so much more flexible.

however, i was wondering if there was any possibility to have examples of characters made with these methods? like a step-by-step process similar to the character creation process included in the Player's Handbook? i know for me, i have certain disabilities that make it hard to comprehend things without step by step processes, and i know many others do as well.

thank you so much for this content, i look forward to being able to use this in my next game!!

My name is luciano i am a black man. I love rpg, but I've always been bothered by how D&D builds some scenarios and characters. When I saw Grazilaxx, I found something that made me happy and that I identified with. I very much hope that this material will be translated into Portuguese. It would be cool instead for different people to know this material.

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.
