Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Farspeech is not a 4e language, "attacks that dominate your mind" is undefined: do you mean "immune to the Dominated condition"? In which case this is overpowered. "Working in direct opposition of your symtiote's will" is undefined, and races templates should not give penalties. Large size. An encounter power that gives a bonus until the end of the encounter, so effectively gives the character a permanent +3 bonus to attacks and defenses. No explanation of the "corruption" mechanic.

Play a Foulkin if you want...

  • to play a character forever in a battle for his/her own sanity
  • to be a member of a unique race with special rules
  • the pleasure of roleplaying a mad-man
  • To be a member of a race that favors the psionic classes.

Physical Qualities[edit]

The Foulkin can appear like any other humanoid race with a few minor differences. However, when they begin to tap into their aberrant powers, their forms shift and bubble. Their skin sheds and they become terrible monsters, much like the Foulspawn, if only with a small amount of self control. Their size increases and they become monstrous to behold. As a simple rule, the normal form of a Foulkin appears to be sickly and disturbed. Their eyes are surrounded by thick black rings and their skin is pale and usually marred by scars. Their nails are usually chipped and chewed upon. Their hair is either completely gone or falling out in clumps from the Foulkin's constant worry and anxious clawing. It's common for Foulkin to have removed a limb or a sensory organ, usually the one that forces the most aberrant information into their already damaged mind.

Playing an Foulkin[edit]

The Foulkin are a bastardized race of half insane mutants. At some point in their normal life they were touched by the power of the Far Realm. It may have started with a few odd dreams. Voices speaking in a language that hurt your ears to hear. Then again, it may have started when a hulking monster ripped a hole into your home and killed your entire family. Either way, you're not what you used to be. When you're taken, you find yourself using a different name. A name you've never heard before, but you know is the name of the monster in your head. No. You're a monster. You feel the foul, evil, chaotic power of the Far Realm pulsing in your mind. Taking control. You're fighting a losing battle, but what else can you do?

Foulkin Characteristics: Nervous, anxious, mad, verbose, violent, frightened, gloomy, cross, fatalistic.

Male Names: Fhfragn, Rgarlas, Pjsarew, Vnerasrg.

Female Names: Gssartlss, Bgsasrt, Vfrwylt, Nsgnro.
