Demonborne (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: This race seems overpowered compared to similar first-party races and would benefit from having less powerful traits. For example, 5e discourages negative ability scores as it is false balance. Summoning should also only be reserved for classes, and is incredibly OP for any race. Overall requires more work from a mechanical perspective to better compare and integrate with the first-party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and consider checking out some of the comparable Featured Articles.

Physical Description[edit]

Demonbornes take on the appearance of their human form. Though, they have black veins and pure black eyes. They can take on different forms of monstrous figures of absolute darkness. When their demon form takes over, they twist and distort from human form...


Outcasted by many, and loved by none. The demon and them bound together as a way of vengeance. They couldn't control them at first, but eventually they harmonized with the monsters inside. The first demonborne accepted into human society was Saci Ellerbondis. However, they have lived for decades upon decades


They normally only communicate with the monsters inside them... then, they grew... and started talking to each other. They have now grown to thrive.
