Tabaxi Subraces[edit]

Mountain Tabaxi[edit]

The Tabaxi of the mountainous tribes are a hardy, spiritual people.

High Altitude. You gain resistance to cold damage.

Elder Tutelage. You have proficiency in the Arcana skill.

Grassland Tabaxi[edit]

Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 1.
Savannah Strider. Your base walking speed increases to 35 feet.
Mask of the Wild. You can attempt to hide even when you are only lightly obscured by foliage, heavy rain, falling snow, mist, and other natural phenomena.

Hidden Fangs. You have proficiency in the Deception skill.

Jungle Tabaxi[edit]

The Tabaxi of the jungle tribes are a wild and free-spirited people. Living even more secluded lives than their mountain kin, the jungle-dwelling tribes are rarely seen venturing outside of their native habitat, and instead live off of the bountiful harvest of the untamed terrain they call home.

Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 1.
Nine Lives. You can fall for 10 feet without suffering fall damage, and up to 30 feet taking only half damage.

Wild Soul. You have tamed the wild magic of the jungle. You know the Thorn Whip cantrip.
Grace of the Jungle. You have proficiency in the Athletics skill.

Forest Tabaxi[edit]

The Tabaxi of the forest tribes are a generous and loyal people. More closely connected to the outside world than their reclusive kin, the Tabaxi of the forests welcome outsiders and trade, believing that they can impart their knowledge and beliefs upon those they forge bonds with, thus reducing the misunderstandings between their people and outsiders.

Ability Score Increase. Your Wisdom score increases by 1.
Jungle Weapon Training. You have proficiency with the longbow, shortbow, spear and scimitar.
Wild Soul. The forest is your home, and it’s bounty is yours for the taking.

Additionally, you have advantage on Survival checks made to identify and follow tracks in forests.
Hunter’s Instinct. No matter how domesticated and civilized you become, there will always be wild blood coursing through your veins. You know the Primal Savagery cantrip.
Scavenger. You have proficiency in the Survival skill.
