Balgrifs (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



A very happy go lucky and outgoing race. Balgrifs can range from being timid and quiet to ill tempered and loud. Balgrifs are the offspring of any race and a reptilian creature.

Physical Description[edit]

Balgrifs also have the fortunate (or unfortunate) case to take visual traits from both parents. This meaning a usual Balgrif would have a tail, scales on the cheeks and sides of torso, tops of arms and legs. Balgrif eyes can be human or reptilian ranging from an entire spectrum of colors. They tend to color their hair if not leave it a natural brown or black.


Balgrifs as a people get along with most races willing to accept them. They despise individuals who refuse to accept them because of their race.


Balgrif's tend to be on the entire spectrum of alignments, though a true neutral Balgrif is rare.


This species being half reptilian prefer warm and humid areas rather than cold ones. Preferred biomes consisted of swamps and marshlands.They also take to deserts and other hot environments.


All Balgrifs choose religion based on family tradition or upon the area they live in. Some adapt a religion on their own or from whom they are raised around.


Balgrifs automatically know Draconic and Common plus whatever language their parents speak.


Like religion, names are based on family traditions or the child my name themself.
