Aarakocra, Labored Flight (5e Race Variant)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Aarakocra Variant[edit]

A simple rebalancing of the aarakocra. A flight speed is very powerful, especially in the early game, as it allows characters to fight at a range out of the reach of most other creatures and effects. The Labored Flight trait, initially detailed in the Stylvix race, alleviates this, allowing for more traits to be added. Allowing flight with heavy armor makes heavily armored aaracokra viable without them losing their "only" trait.

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 2, and your Wisdom score increases by 1.

Size: Your size is Medium.

Speed: Your base walking speed is 25 feet.

Aaracokra Training: You are proficient in either the Survival, Acrobatics, or Medicine skills.

Sharp Vision: Whenever you make a Wisdom (Perception) check related to perceiving far away creatures or objects, you are considered proficient in the Perception skill and add double your proficiency bonus to the check, instead of your normal proficiency bonus.

Labored Flight. As an action, you can gain a flight speed of 50 feet until the start of your next turn. If you are wearing medium or heavy armor, you gain a flight speed of 30 feet instead.

Talons. Your talons are natural weapons, which you can use to make unarmed strikes. If you hit with them, you deal slashing damage equal to 1d4 + your Strength modifier, instead of the bludgeoning damage normal for an unarmed strike.

Language. You can speak, read, and write Common, Aarakocra, and Auran.
