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, +4 ASI, +3 to a single score, negative ASI's, 40 foot of movement as well as other forms of movement, innate version of the alert feat, flat bonuses, advantage without an ability score or skill, unconditional advantage on a skill check, etc. 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.

Newro[edit]

Small, cute and scheming. The Newro will get what they want.

Physical Description[edit]

The Newro are a small race of mouse-like creatures. They have soft black fur, deep red eyes and glistening white claws which faintly glow in the darkness. Although the Newro are small, they make up for their short stature with great intelligence and innate charisma. The Newro are capable of standing on their hind legs and will often do so when speaking, eating or doing anything with their hands, but will often move about on all fours when running or climbing.

History[edit]

The Newro formed their societies deep underground. They developed technology, society, arts and religion all without ever coming to the surface world. The Newro knew of the surface world and understood what it was, but chose to remain secluded for hundreds of years. It was not until a city expanding it's deep sewer system breached the Newro underground that the mouse-like species somewhat unwillingly came in contact with the surface dwellers. From the initial contact, the Newro decided that they would learn as much as they could from the surface's developments and use it to improve their own knowledge and society. They sent out Newro agents all across the world to gather as much information as possible.

Society[edit]

The Newro are a tightly knit society where they will put helping and protecting each other over anything else. Even enemy Newro will work together should it result in the success of their race as a whole over another species. The Newro are fond of being below ground and love to build their homes and maze-like tunnels deep. Often Newro cities are like sprawling, intricate mazes.

Newro respect intelligence and charisma. The leaders of Newro society tend to be the intellectuals and smooth talkers. The Newro also despise charlatans, frauds and those who go back on their claims.

Newro Names[edit]

The Newro will often be named with shortened names of precious gems and metals.

Male: Iro, Dia, Sidian, Nium

Female: Ru, Phire, Emera, Tz
