Magic Items

Races

Half-Celestials

Half-Celestials are born of a celestial and typically any humanoid race with tendencies towards good alignments (ie. elves, humans, dwarves, gnomes, etc). These folk tend to appear as glorious humanoids with lustrous hair, flawless skin, and piercing eyes. They more often than not have large white feathered wings that sprout from their backs giving them ability to fly and have a luminescent glow about them, inspiring awe in those that look upon them. Many half-celestials attempt to avoid being seen by the masses, not wishing to upset people. Outsiders are generally mistrusted and half-celestials frequently deal with people mistaking them for true celestials and showing fear as they try to avoid them, people mobbing them simply for the false impression that touching them might heal their ailments, or in the worst cases having their feathers plucked and stolen for their divine properties.

Ability Score Increase. Strength, Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma all get a +2 bonus.
Age. Half-celestials reach adulthood at the same rate as their mortal parent's race would but live to well over 600 years longer than that of their mortal ancestors.

High Humans

High-Humans are a sub-race of humans that rule by divine right and heredity over the realm of Anauroch. Unlike your average human, these people are much taller and far longer lived. These people tend to appear as the pinnacle of human perfection with thick and curly locks of hair varying in metallic shades of silver and gold also sporting piercing eyes of similarly unusual colors. High-Human eyes range between metallic colors to unusually vibrant shades. The closer the high-human is to the ruling family the more unusual their eyes and hair tend to be ranging between silvers, golds, violets, reds, and slowly reaching out into sapphire blues, emerald greens, even shades of amber. The skin of these humans can vary between shades of ivory white to golden bronze.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.
Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common, Elven, Dwarven, plus two other languages of your choosing. High-humans are taught the languages of the races that their kingdoms trade with so that they can converse with their people and neighboring kingdoms when needed.

Kitsune

The kitsune are fox fey, masters of trickery. These fey are some of the less hostile amongst fey-kind but don't take that to mean they're harmless. If they so desire these creatures can cause just as much havoc as any faerie. Often appearing as simple foxes, it is hard to tell the difference between the animal and the fey. However, when they take human form it becomes quite clear with their lupine ears, fangs, and long fluffy tails, these things are not what they appear. Hair and/or fur colors range between black/grey, red, gold, silver, and very rarely white.

  • Kitsune Ball
  • There is one item bound to each kitsune shortly after birth. It can be any item but it is one they bond with at a very young age and becomes quite precious to them. Frequently this will take the form of a child's toy. Hence the name "Kitsune Ball". If this object is stolen, the kitsune will be automatically placed under the dominate monster spell with the holder of the “ball” as the spellcaster. This effect persists until the item is returned to the kitsune’s possession.


  • Foxfire
  • Evocation cantrip
  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 120ft
  • Components: S
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute.
  • Creates a ball of blue flames in the caster's hand. Foxfire floats away in the direction the cast's wills it to. The ball is utterly silent and dances in a direction indicated by the caster at a maximum speed of 20ft and is unaffected by wind or obstacles -- Foxfire will float right through windows, curtains, walls, etc. It maintains its heading and speed unless the caster concentrates to change it. The Foxfire deals 1d10+Int damage on the mental command of the caster. If the spell is allowed to expire, the Foxfire winks out of existence without damaging anything. While it endures, it sheds light equivalent to torchlight, illuminating a twenty-yard.

Lupines

Lupines are a subspecies of werewolves. These werewolves have only two forms. Their anthro wolf form and their normal wolf form. They can take the form of a wolf at will taking one action to shift forms. The Lupine has heightened senses, a fiery temper, and a tendency to eat rare meat. Its wolf form is a fearsome predator. Most Lupines flee civilized lands not long after becoming afflicted. Those that reject the curse fear what will happen if they remain among their friends and family. Those that embrace the curse fear discovery and the consequences of their murderous acts. In the wild, werewolves and lupines form packs that also include wolves and dire wolves.
