Beastfolk live in strong communities. Their clan ties are strong, but their racial ties are even greater; going to war with the Beastfolk on their own land is nothing short of folly.

Play one of the Beastfolk if you want...

  • A deep bond with nature.
  • To be any degree of anthropomorphic.
  • To be a member of a race that favors the Rogue, Fighter or Ranger

Physical Qualities[edit]

The only true "racial quality" that can be attributed to the Beastfolk is their obvious bond with animals. A Beastfolk will have characteristics of the animal of their clan, ranging from simple things like animalistic ears and tails, to being so like their clan animal that they may be mistaken as a were-creature. Their animal characteristics are just as varied as the animals they have spiritually bonded to.

Playing one of the Beastfolk[edit]

The Beastfolk are a noble race, but because of what they are and the way they live, they are often misunderstood by the other races. Sometimes, this is not an issue; at other times, they may be wary of, even hostile to one of the Beastfolk. Evil Beastfolk are extremely rare, but not unheard of.

Beast Folk Characteristics: The Beastfolk are so varied in their characteristics that assembling a list is a fool's errand. However, some generalizations may apply; more often than not, a member of the Wolf Clan will be noble, and fiercely loyal to those he has included in his "pack"; a member of the Cat Clan will likely be sly, but warmhearted. A member of the Bear Clan will be fierce, but friendly and fair; a member of the Bird clan will likely be wise and patient, and rarely will not be understanding.

In general, the Beastfolk worship Mielikki. However, some have been known to worship Bahamut, Corellion, Pelor, Sehanine, and even Moradin. Beastfolk revere nature, and as such revere Gods and Goddesses connected to it, even if they do not necessarily worship them.

Beastfolk Names: Beastfolk names are just as varied as their characteristics; coming up with a common list would be a monstrous challenge.
