Possible new races?

Post  Helthan on Thu Oct 04, 2018 7:59 am

So yeah, I just had a moment of excitement, thinking of how cool it would be to RP an undead, like a skeleton.
This may just be that the month of spook is upon us, but I'd like to know if it would be possible to have various undead as playable races?

Friend Helthan,

Good question.

It can be done. There are, of course, pros and cons of being undead (particularly for RP). D&D undead are summed up in these links (for our mutual consideration).

^^^ food for thought... we may allow for PCs to 'get converted' using this above link data. Feedback?

Specific types of undead are listed below - we can dialog on each of them as you please here in this thread.

GHOST : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

GHOUL : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

LICH* : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

MUMMY : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

SHADOW : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

SKELETON : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

SPECTRE : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

WIGHT : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

WRAITH : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

ZOMBIE : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Note that some undead are mindless sorts, so may be a little, shall we say, challenging to play.

* Planned but with a mega tough ritual required to become one.

Even though I made a joke about it, I think Hel was saying more like.. a lighthearted "fun" type of characters, for the Halloween/harvest time celebrations done all over.

I myself, i don't have much desire to play an undead ... the fun ones, would be "mindless" , lol.

Being infected, unwillingly by a in game vamp, just something to... deal with/cope.
The rest .. I don't know, Lich ... maybe, like some epic level goal for immortality ... the rest, I have a hard time , imagining motives for. I mean, what goal would a .. wraith have? Kill all living things?
Whights or Ghouls... digging up bones in graveyards? lol ...

just having a hard time seeing it myself.

Now if just allowed to clown around, as a rattling pair of skeletons for a bit, maybe interesting ... not sure about long term of such though.

I do actually have a PC that desires "immortality", and chooses to apprach it with necromancy.
Giving him the option to actually BECOME, say, a Lich, would be neat.
