Monday Night Madness
Here’s a complete list of Shadow of the Demon Lord Ancestries (what D&D and other games would call Races).. I have set them up in the form of random tables for the truly lazy, but I otherwise discourage that method of choosing where to go with your character:
Ancestries for the Morfairsing Bloom Campaign…
|18||roll a d20 on the “You just had to be a funky bastard” table below|
|1d20 roll||Unusual Ancestry||book||notes|
|3||Vampire||ToD||requires a Capstone Ancestry|
|4||Revenant||ToD||requires a Capstone Ancestry|
|6||Gnome||Children of the Restless Earth|
|11||Incarnate||Hunger in the Void||requires a Capstone Ancestry|
|12||Jotun||A Glorious Death||Advanced Ancestry|
|13||Ghoul||Flesh of the Fallen||Advanced Ancestry|
|14||Skinchanger||Tooth & Claw||requires a Capstone Ancestry|
|15||Fomor||Hunger in the Void||warning: MONSTER!|
|16||Warg||Hunger in the Void||warning: MONSTER!|
|17||Bugbear||Hunger in the Void||warning: MONSTER!|
|18||Lizardman||Foulest Reptiles||warning: MONSTER!|
|19||Ogre||Ghastly Gourmands||warning: MONSTER!|
Advanced Ancestries don’t get a Novice career.
Capstone Ancestries have to roll as another Ancestry (restricted by Capstone Ancestry – read up on it) before applying the Capstone Ancestry.
Monster Ancestries are usually poorly balanced, don’t have wonderful supporting tables to roll background stuff, and may get attacked out of turn walking into the wrong cities/towns/villages, as well as be randomly attacked by bum adventurers who want to steal your shoes.
