Olug (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Physical Description[edit]

Olugs are large humanoids with a hunched over statue. Their faces are mistaken for large wooden masks with hollow eyes, but each mask is their actual face and cannot be removed. Their limbs are thick, but proportionately shorter compared to other humanoids despite their height.


Olugs were once a slave race from many hundreds of years ago, used and feared for their strong connection to spirits. They've long since used their powers to escape their bindings, but thanks to their long age, they still carry the scars of slavery to this day.

Olug Names[edit]

Male: Rakoth, Urgand, Kurtos

Olug Traits[edit]

Large and imposing forest dwellers with a strong spiritual connection.
Ability Score Increase. Olugs have +2 to Strength, and +1 to either Constitution or Charisma.
Age. The barrier between living and dead is loosely defined for an Olug. They can live to be over a thousand years old, slowly transitioning from a living creature to an undead spirit guide for the next generation, with no clear line between the two.
Alignment. Olugs tend towards a lawful good culture, but
Size. An Olug stands well over 6 feet tall when standing straight, but have a hunched over statue.
Speed. Your base walking speed is <speed> feet.
Deep Camouflage. Through mimicry of wood and plants, Olugs gain advantage on stealth checks inside of forests.
Ancestral Gift. When an Olug dies, their spirit does not move on to the afterlife, but remains as a visible ghost with halved maximum health. As a ghost, you can only physically interact with the Ethereal plane, your spell slots are limited to one per level, and you cannot revive yourself. If you are destroyed as a ghost, only a True Resurrection spell or similar can revive you.
Commune. You can see and interact with the spirits of the recently deceased. A spirit lasts for up to 7 days before moving onto the afterlife, but leaves sooner if they have no unfinished business.
Elemental body. You do not need air, food, or water. You must meditate for 4 hours in lieu of sleeping.
