Thirdlings (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Thirdlings prefer to be underfoot, causing all sorts of havok and sometimes saving the world.

Physical Description[edit]

Thirdlings stand about two feet tall and weigh about 20 pounds. They generally have silver or gold irises. Thirdlings prefer to wear fairly light clothing. Thirdlings reach adulthood at about age 25 and can live for 400 years. Unlike many other races, Thirdlings become more youthful and exuberant as they get older, until they die of their own enthusiasm.


Many other races have been coexisting with Thirdlings without even being sure of their existence. Sometimes a prank or two causes them to suspect something, and sometimes the mysterious death of a dangerous dragon makes some people wonder.


Common, Thirdling


The standard naming practice for Thirdlings is similar to that of many other races. However, their first names are always monosyllabic, and their last names are always an important-sounding noun followed by a syllable, like "Snik Questhop"
