Original Character[edit]


There have been few creatures as difficult to understand as the Original Characters. Each is the protagonist of their own story, and they near-universally hold an intense hatred of stealing. It's said that the first Original Character arose from some magical experiment involving a hedgehog. The resulting creature was too swift to contain, and escaped.

Original Character Traits[edit]

Original character, do not steal!
Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 2 and your Charisma score increases by 1.
Age. Original Characters reach maturity at about 15 years, and live fast, tending to live to around only 40 years.
Alignment. OCs are often drawn toward dangerous and reckless behavior to prove themselves. They are near-universally Chaotic, but exceptions, though rare, do exist.
Size. OCs grow between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 feet tall and weigh about 30 pounds. Your size is Small.
Speed. Your base walking speed is 60 feet.
Gotta Go Fast. Original Characters are much more agile and nimble than members of most races. Your AC increases by 2, you have advantage on Dexterity saving throws, and you gain an additional action on each of your turns, in addition to your regular action and possible bonus action. That action can be used only to take the Attack (one weapon attack only), Dash, Disengage, Hide, or Use an Object action.
Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and one other language of your choice.
