Bulbon (5e Race)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: This belongs in the sci-fi section. The lore needs work as it is rather confusing, there were humans that mutated due to their environment in a weird way and then came to planet earth? Doesn't make much sense. Mechanically it is balanced however the traits are confusing and don't have a consistent theme to them. More of an odd collection of traits.

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

Physical Description[edit]

Bulbon are considered "Otherworldly" or "Alien", because of their looks. Bulbons have orange skin, a regular humanoid body except for the hands and head, with huge, purple veins protruding form their skin. For their heads: Imagine an octopus. Except the octopus has a round, sphere-shaped "Head" instead of a floppy one. And Imagine the octopus has reptilian eyes all over its face, and its tentacles are tiny. Also Imagine that the tentacles can be pulled out of a small hole in the head where a mouth would be. For their hands and feet: a huge, thick-muscled claw.


The history about this race is known, and only few a man is alive to tell how they came here.

The bulbons used to be humans, who lived on a ocean planet called Mak' Harak for such along time that they began to change and mutate into a bulbon. With their limited technology, they were able to find only one source that would keep them alive; Earth(or so it is called). They began to fly here in ships, but the atmosphere of this planet caused them to crash somewhere foreign on Earth. They then started a new life.


For some reason, bulbons are treated harshly among humans, and treated like slaves. If a bulbon walks into a restaurant, the owner might refuse to serve the "lowly" bulbon.
