Aarakocra Variant[edit]

Penguin aarakocra bear many thousands of tiny feathers covering a layer of thick fat that keeps them warm. Their webbed feet and flippers are the keys to their ability to swim and catch fish. Penguins live in large colonies in the tundra coast and arctic areas. They are accustomed to the cold and can not survive well outside the cold environment.

This race variant replaces the Flight and Talons traits.

Flightless. In place of wings you have a set of flippers and a very sleek and slick body that grants you a great adaptation to swimming. You have a swimming speed of 50 feet. You can't be wearing heavy armor to use this speed.

Hold Breath. You can hold your breath for up to 15 minutes at a time.

Thick Skin. You have resistance to cold damage and are immune to negative effects caused by Extreme Cold (see page 110 of the DMG).

Aversion to Heat. You are unaccustomed to heat. Whenever you take fire damage, you have disadvantage on all saving throws you make until the end of your next turn.

Racial Feats[edit]

Joyous Dancer

You bear the spark of joy within your soul that empowers your dancing. You have proficiency in the Performance skill, and you can double your proficiency bonus when making a check for your dancing.

You may use your action to break out into dance, empowering the people around you. A number of creatures up to your proficiency bonus that can see you can add a d6 to one attack roll, ability check, or saving throw they make in the next hour. This ability is usable once per short or long rest. In addition, if you are forced to dance against your will(such as by Otto's Irresistible Dance or the command spell) you may choose to succeed on the save and use this ability, even if you would not normally be able to do so.
