New Races: Naiad Nymph for 5e

Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. Nymph: NaiadNaiads are nymphs of springs, ponds, and those waterways too small to be ruled over by a greater divinity. Naiads prefer freshwater to salt water dwellings and the confines of such waterways to the vast expanse of the sea. Naiads are reclusive, shy and quiet. They observe and obsess over those they love from the safety of the waters. They do not always understand that other creatures do not share their affinity to water and have lured many lovers to a watery doom.

New Races: Lampad Nymph for 5e

Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. Nymph: LampadLampads are the dour nymphs of the underworld. Perhaps the most worldly of the nymphs, they serve as entourages to the goddesses of the Underworld. They take their name from the lamp they carry through the world of the dead to light their way. Lampads are very pale with long dark hair. They are the least self-centered or vain of the nymphs, looking like the shades they preside over. As such, they are the least sociable of the nymphs, preferring the presence of non-lampads to that of their sisters. Lampad FeaturesYour nymph character has several traits in common with all other nymphs. Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma and Dexterity scores each increase by 1. Age. You grew very quickly from a young age and matured around age ten. From there, you will change very little the rest of your lives. You can live up to ten centuries. Size.

New Series: Races of the Greeks for 5th Edition

I have been in something of an ancient world thing for the past year or so, with working on Akhamet and spending time on a Greek-thing (whose name I keep changing all the time). During this time, I filled my Dropbox with like a million small files about potential races, monsters, and adventure ideas. I am at a point where I need to create a folder just for this. After going through a series of iterations, I decided to focus on three types of nymphs, all of which would be playable by PCs. Since the Monster Manual already includes a dryad entry, I wanted to create something new. Part of this series, I will present the statistics for new races I plan on adding to my finalized Greek book. I already have a few races out there: Amazon, Medusan, Olympian, and Titanborn. The races in these blog posts will be allowed choices in both the Legacies Organized Play Campaign, but also any game I run. I may gather these into a Gostor book in the meantime, and create a Herolab plugin to create these as characters.
