Subrace & misc questions

Post  Aviendha on Thu Apr 18, 2013 12:20 am

Hey, I just joined the forums today. I was considering playing a 'Shield Dwarf,' but I am unsure how to go about it. What do I type into the sub-race field? I am assuming something like 'Shield_Dwarf' or something similar. Also, do you have any recommended links for the races background? I have already read the following information:
* Shield Dwarves
Found largely in the northern reaches of western and central Faerun, shield dwarves are the dominant northern branch of the Stout Folk. Renowned for their smith work and craftsmanship, shield dwarves have endured a centuries-long decline in the face of never-ending wars with orcs, goblins, giants, and trolls.

Finally, is there a list of server-specific modifications on things like feats, abilities, and spells?

P.S. Sorry for PM'n a DM first, I found this after I jumped the gun and asked via PM

Not a Dm, but thought I'd chuck a few things out here while I'm here.

If you haven't already the Faerun Wikia is pretty good for all things Faerun and their article on Shield dwarves is pretty long. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

As for Argentum Regio info on the race, I'm not aware of any subrace of dwarves yet- there may be some different types of dwarves in far off lands in the realm, but in the lands of Argentum Regio you're more likely to find different types of dwarves by clans rather than sub-race.

As for changes in feats, skills and abilities, I'll have to let someone else answer as I don't have a lot of info on that.

However I'm not sure you need to put anything in the subrace box- I'll let someone else decide on this, but a shield dwarf seems to be your average dwarf. For subraces like these (Elves: moon elf, sun elf, wood elf, Dwarf: Gold dwarf, shield dwarf, artic, urdunnir, wild...) the subrace tag isn't neccesary- you can play a typical dwarf and RP them as a subrace. The Subrace tag seems more for races that require special abilities, language, scripts and feats added (Drow have a different skill set to average elves).

But ODA and Eriniel will probably have more say on this.

For now I'd just ask if you're thinking of making a Dwarf native to Arg-reg/ the realm of this server, or if you're wanting to make a Faerunian dwarf who's fallen through into this realm.

Shield Dwarf <= Subrace name, just place that in the Subrace box (NOT case sensitive) after choosing the base race (Dwarf in this case)

+2 CON (Changes made to attributes)
-2 CHA
Favored Class: FIGHTER (Favoured Class - for multiclass XP mainly)

Since the dwarf default is +2 CON and -2 CHA, and favoured class is fighter this subrace doesn’t really do anything.
