Tiegon (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: No race should have 120ft of truesight as most high level monsters don't get more than 30ft truesight if any. Secondly, it says that they have telepathic communication with anyone they consider is a part of "their tribe". Wording wise, this could mean anybody that the character feels close to, including (but not limited to) party members, friends, drinking buddies, that one cool NPC that your character saw do a cool thing, etc., as tribe just means a group of people with some sort of linking factor that sometimes has a recognized leader. And lastly, in the Demonic Tiegon subrace, "You can cast 2 spells as one" sounds like a feature that allows you to cast two spells at the same time using the same action, which should not be a feature on an already overpowered class and definitely at least needs a re-wording.

Tiegon (teegone)[edit]

"Scourge of the Realm, they live silently in plain sight."

Physical Description[edit]

Tiegons have Scales, Tails (1d4),and horns (1d4), and grow wings above level 10. They have a strange twisted beauty when viewed by other race that are non-angelic. Angelic races are subject to immediate indescribable unease when a Tiegon is within 20 feet.


Dragon-Elves and Tieflings were both outcast races that eventually found solace in each other after long struggles. They descend from two different groups of Elven Crossbreeds between the Dragons and Tieflings. Their nomadic and hermetic nature has kept them secret for many thousands of years. Living in seclusion, they have lost all original knowledge of their origins and lore.


Tiegon society is nomadic with tribal structure. They tend to shy away from other races with a few ambitious wanderers going into the cities to collect supplies. They can hibernate in a type of suspended animation not aging for up to 100 years at a time. They normally do this in large groups buried in the ground they are sometimes mistaken for undead when they awaken. Some may not wake up with the others, leaving them to search for their tribe. Tribes are very tight knit. They have an innate need to stay together.

Tiegon Names[edit]

Tiegons pick random names rolled by a d20 and d6 from the common (English) alphabet. They add vowels by rolling a D6 (a,e,i,o,u,y ; 1,2,3,4,5,6). They do this ceremonially until they get something that is able to be pronounced. Male names typically start and end in consonants. Female names typically start and end in vowels.

Male: Soder, Krond, Dagosug

Female: Ujodei, Escela, Aridunia
