Arcanii (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Arcanii act just as any other overly posh, arrogant, jerkhole would. They believe themsleves superior to all beings and... frankly they have the raw power to prove it, on the other hand they are addicted to magical energy to the point where they become total vampires without it's presence. All they feel is.... Hungry.

Physical Description[edit]

Arcanii appear as humans with overexaggerated good looks, but with fluorescent hair, colorful glowing eyes and a natural "Glow" to their skin, but when they've been deprived of magic they begin to become faded, warped, and dark.


They are friendly to all races, unless they are considered magical then they are just considered food. They ally themselves with blackhearts, due to their common hatred with all living things.


They are chaotic, due to the fact that they only seek magical energy like a horrible addiction.


They live inside the Astral sea on a plane known only as The Gate, it is a beutiful land filled with brightly shimmering plants, the sky is always in aurora, and arcane energy flowing through the air like water. The Gate was destroyed in a conquest from the nine hells and ever since then they have been forced to exist on the material plane, without their arcane source though they have only little to feed on mainly, the arcane energy inside every living thing... they hunger for it.




Common, Draconic, Sylvan


They have incredibley exotic and noble names like Alexander, Lazarus, Circe, and Morganthe.

Racial Traits[edit]
