Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Stronger than any first party race and uses incomplete and incorrect wording throughout. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague or written like casual conversation. Grants a plethora of game-breaking benefits on top of being a Large PC race that goes well beyond what a races role. Overall poorly executed and needs a rework both from a mechanic and lore perspective to better compare with the first party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and see the Featured Articles pages for some exemplary content.

"The only thing scarier than a shark is a shark that can raid ships. Oh, They exist."

Physical Description[edit]

Lamnidoids have humanoid bodies with shark heads, a fin on their back, and a tail.


Lamnidoids are a group of aggressive humanoid sharks that have ruled the seas for millions of years. They consider anything demonic as a waste of space.


Lamnidoids usually tend to stay with their own kind. They are not separated by color or type, and take advantage of their differences when raiding ships. There are a few times where Lamnidoid tend to hold alliances with different species, although it's extremely rare. Most Lamnidoids tend to stay as armies.
