Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: Incomplete. This really needs to be fleshed out because as of right now it lacks any substantial Fluff. While it can be regarded by some as useless information it has a significant impact on how your content is used by players. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help. Also, Druidic is the language of the druids, not the plants, trees or fey, that is Sylvan.

You can help D&D Wiki by finishing and/or adding flavor to this page. When the flavor has been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand the idea behind this page please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

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, Rainbow Protection is wholly vague and ripe for abuse with how many people are considered party members(are my three retainers also party members? If I have an army on my side do they also count?), Chieftain Training grants martial weapon proficiency when it should only grant a specific set of weapons, ideally two simple and two martial weapons, Bloom Booth is a free casting of tiny hut which while not being necessarily unbalanced it can be simplified by allowing them to cast the spell once, Crafting an overpowered combination of the gnomes tinkering, the lizardfolks artisan and a herbalism kit. 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.

Broom Icon.svg.png This page needs grammatical help. Reason: A number of grammatical/capitalization/italicization/wording errors throughout. Consult the Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize for help. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague. For example, alignments and spells aren't capitalized, spells should be italicized and link to the SRD, "once per rest" wording, "You are proficient in the Persuasion skill." not "You have proficiency in Persuasion.", etc...

Physical Description[edit]

Seedlings are small, plant-like humanoids. They have wooden horns growing from their heads, and their skin can be green, blue or similar in colour to humans. Their clothes usually consist of colourful traditional silks tied around their bodies, shielding them from the sun while letting in breezes to keep them cool.


Seedlings spread across deserts, creating oases with the help of water spirits such as nymphs and elementals. Long ago, these oases were bastions against the forces of evil and chaos; now, they offer travellers respite from the harsh desert.


Seedlings originate from desert oases, and often travel the desert as merchants. They usually get along well with other races, and freely welcome them into their civilisations. Each seedling oasis is run by a chief and a water spirit, who work to keep the oasis safe and prosperous.

Seedling Names[edit]

Seedlings' names most often consist of two syllables, though names with three syllables aren't uncommon, and they don't typically have surnames.

Male: Jasper, Pami, Roto, Sabayt, Saeed, Shakuro, Tethu

Female: Carlotta, Hosni, Lili, Nubit, Jamileh, Shalara, Tethi
