Nightborne (5e Subrace)

From D&D Wiki

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Compared to the first party elvish subraces this is too strong and possesses even a semblance of any of the traits or abilities of their parent races. See the 5e Race Design Guide for help. There is also no reason why these subraces that hate each on even a spiritual level would mate, read MToF's section on elves for help.

Physical Description[edit]

These elves usually, but not always have darker skin colors with brown or silver eyes and silver or white hair standing at about 5'0" to 5'9" feet tall, usually slender and weigh about 130 to 180 Lbs.

History[edit]

These elves came into being from a Dark Elf and a High Elf. They are known to excel in knowledge and intelligence with a quick temper. The Nightborne are more active at night and are under high surveillance from the other elven races, as they are a very dangerous race if they are left alone for too long.

Society[edit]

This race excels in research and combat efficiency, as such, they have turned their homes into an inventor's dream with ingeniously crafted housing structures and creatively designed research buildings that blend in with the darkness of night. Most of the Nightborne are arrogant and they also hate outsiders. They believe in a structured society where science prevails over religion.
