Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Stronger than any first party race and uses incomplete and incorrect wording throughout. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague or written like casual conversation. You get 35 feet of flying as well as a plethora of strong and questionable traits. 8th level innate spellcasting? 5th level counterspell? Is this blue light, bright or dim? what is it's radius? "change your size to big"??? Overall poorly executed and needs a rework from a mechanical perspective to better integrate with the first party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and see the Featured Articles pages for some exemplary content.

Spirit Walker[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

<Blue%20Angel.jpg>
<Made by Arco at visualmatter.com>

Spirit Walkers in their true form look like blue ghosts of angels from the Ethereal plane of existence, however they appear to all now as a Human/humanoid creature. The only way creatures can see through this disguise is with Darkvision or Truesight(in any form). Unlike other races, Spirit Walkers are not gender role specific and do not feel a need to identify as one or the other because they can grow male/female organs when they are mutually ready to start procreating. When in the Ethereal plane they are represented as their ghostly blue counterpart.

History[edit]

Spirit Walkers were created at the beginning of the worlds timeline by gods from the ethereal plane to help guide the unfortunate less than intelligent creatures to wisdom and peace. They often persuaded humanoid creatures to mate with them, becoming part of the ancestry of many human like races. Despite having weird starting interactions with the mortal plane of existence, Spirit Walkers now draw on personalities of Humans, and are similar to them in every way of personality, not feeling excluded because of abnormalities given to them upon birth.

Spirit Walker Names[edit]

Names of Spirit Walkers will be from anything to everything because they only need a name for self identification, however they prefer to take generic names to blend in more with the rest of species.

Spirit Walker Traits[edit]

Age. Spirit Walkers can only live up to 100 years, then they are reincarnated in a new form with a different mind, however they can be chosen by ethereal plane gods to live longer.
