Surfimon at Digimon Wiki[1].


Digimon are artificial life forms, created by bits and pieces of lost computer data, that live inside electronic devices that possess non-volatile memories. Digimon are born from a Digitama (Digi-Egg), and eventually grow during a process known as Digivolution, in which they undergo a series of physical changes, and in most cases, an increase in their powers. Some Digimon act beastly, guided by their wild instincts, while others possess human intelligence, feelings, and personality.

Digimon Names[edit]

Digimon generally do not have a proper name and are usually called by the name of their species. However there are some Digimon possessing their own name.

Digimon Traits[edit]

Digimon are digital creatures that digivolve to improve their level of power and abilities over their previous form.
Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 2 and your Dexterity score increases by 1.
Age. The life cycle of a Digimon is almost always the same, they are born from a Digitama, evolve and eventually die, disintegrating into infinitesimal fragments of information.
Alignment. It depends on the subclass of the Digimon.
Size. The size of a Digimon varies too much to catalog, but they generally follow the rules detailed in the table. Although there may be small or large Digimon in any of the evolutions.
Speed. Also varies a lot, use the chart to determine speed.
Digivolution. It is a process by which a Digimon "grows and matures", transforming into another creature, generally larger and more powerful than its previous form. Digivolution is very similar to the human maturation process, where a Digimon grows by changing shape and gaining experience throughout its life. However, evolving to a higher level is increasingly difficult, so few Digimon can naturally evolve to higher levels. When a Digimon evolves, its Digicore is violently overwritten, so its species characteristics tend to change, as do its individual characteristics. At 4th level you can use your action to evolve to a higher evolutionary stage, (if you have one available). You can use this skill once. Recover spent uses when you finish a long rest. You can stay in your evolution a number of hours equal to half your level (rounded down). Then you go back to your Rookie form. You can return to Rookie as a free action on your turn. You also automatically revert to your Rookie form if you fall unconscious, are reduced to 0 hit points, or die. While you are evolving the following rules apply to you: Your character's stats are replaced based on evolution level, but your alignment, personality, and ability scores are preserved. You can use this ability twice starting at level 8, three times starting at 12, and four times starting at level 16.
Natural weapon. If your Digimon has claws, a horn, tail, fangs or a weapon in hand it is considered a natural weapon, for damage you can use the natural weapon rule table. You cannot use other types of weapons.
Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and Digimon. Digimon language is often used by Digimon who choose to or are otherwise unable to speak Common.
Subrace. There are 10 Digimon families, these serve to classify Digimon with common characteristics. Choose one of these subraces: Dark Area, Virus Busters, Unknown, Nature Spirits, Wind Guardians, Metal Empire, Deep Savers, Dragon's Roar, Nightmare Soldiers, Jungle Troopers.
