Racial Traits[edit]

This list of trait descriptions in the table below are written in such a way so that users can easily copy them in without needing to edit them to hyperlink references. In addition, any word enclosed in square brackets [like so] is meant to be replaced with an appropriate value (e.g. damage type, skill, etc.); the square brackets must be removed! Anything marked with [#] is meant to be filled with a numerical value (again, remove the square brackets). Finally, this table only includes additional traits that are added on top of the default races receive and as such the first two languages a race gets, a base 30ft walking speed, etc, aren't included.
