The List of Homebrewed Races and Sub-races

As of the game right now, called Adventures in Val'Vahan, these are the subraces and races that I have homebrewed that are allowed. Scroll to the article's bottom to read the statblock. If it is titled 'Sub-race', then you are to use the PHB race as its base. If it is titled 'Race', then all the required information is in the statblock. If there is contradictory information between the statblock and the PHB (for instance, the Tyrandine Dwarf statblock says they are Small sized, but the PHB says Dwarves are Medium sized) then you are to take the statblock's information over that of the PHB's (so your Tyrandine Dwarf will be considered Small sized).

These are not replacements of the PHB races. If you want to play a Pokhrazadi Dwarrow, meaning Hill Dwarf, but don't like the statblock I've given and would prefer the PHB one, you're free to use the PHB stats instead of mine.

If you have any questions or concerns or even race ideas privately message me on Discord.

The Elves of Northern Erub

Note: ALL the Dwarrow (Dwarves) are very powerful in their home territories, but are balanced outside of it. This represents the greater powers the Dwarrow have as creatures fundamentally of the earth. Also, the ability to not get lost in the Dwarf Halls is invaluable in my campaigns. I will also be biased in a Dwarf's favor if they are in their own Halls. The Dwarrow should be as powerful as the High Elves while they are home, stat-wise.


The Dwarrow of Pokhrazad: are the Hill Dwarrow in the Northern Empire. They are sad but brave. They have charisma as a stat bonus, and can give allies the half-orc not-dying staying-at-one-hp ability.
