D&D Players Can Now Create Fairy, Owlfolk & Rabbitfolk Characters AC409096-040B-4F75-91EC-655C6C2C335E.jpeg

Dungeons & Dragons players can now create Fairy, Hobgoblin, Owlfolk, and Rabbitfolk characters, thanks to new playtest material from Unearthed Arcana.
Here’s the link and the archive of the article.

Here’s the unearthed arcana link and archive.
The Feywild is home to many fantastic peoples, including fairies. Fairies are a wee folk, but not nearly as much so as their pixie and sprite friends.

Infused with the magic of the Feywild, fairies share a few commonalities with one another but can differ widely in appearance, behavior, and attitude. Many fairies have a special physical characteristic that sets them apart from other creatures of their kind. For your fairy, roll on the Fey Characteristic table or choose an option from it. The Feywild is a wild place, so come up with your own characteristic if none of these fit your character.

Fey Characteristics d8 Characteristic
1 You have small wings like those of an insect.
2 You have shimmering, multicolored skin.
3 You have exceptionally large ears.
4 A constant, glittering mist surrounds you.
6 Your hands never look dirty.
7 You smell like fresh brownies.
8 A noticeable harmless chill surrounds you.

Fairy Traits
You have the following racial traits.
Creature Type: You are a fey.
Size: You are small.
Fairy Flight: You have a flying speed of 30 feet.
Fairy Magic: You know the Druid craft and Faerie Fire spells. You can spending a spell slot, and you must finish a long rest before you can cast it this way again. You can also cast this with any spell slots that you have. Your spellcasting ability for these spells is your choice of Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma.
Fey Ancestry. You have advantage on saving throws you make to avoid or end the charmed condition on yourself.
Fey Passage. You can squeeze through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide.

Seems a bit off compared to other races. They are small but still move 30 ft, they can fly right away, and they can move through spaces as narrow as 1 inch while being small but not tiny. While not a big deal its something that seems ripe for abuse. Also compared to other races with innate spells they can choose which characteristic to use for their spellcasting ability.

One of the things that annoys me about 5th is how small or tiny creatures don’t do less damage. I wouldn’t be against these rules if there were also drawbacks like dealing less damage with weapons, having less Hp, etc. Even for experimental rules it doesn’t seem well balanced. Seems like something a dangerhair would write up... I’ve only taken a precursory glance and it seems off. I know it’s unearthed arcana... but still...

I also dislike how they mention the two furry races can choose to be medium or small. If there’s a difference I’d rather they’d be subraces and the size differences followed by characteristic differences ie bigger gets a strength or constitution bonus.

* Edit* sorry if I’m late as hell, I just read it.

Why does it matter so much to r/sigmarxism that warhammer or whatever be recognized as "Leftist satire" Sure there is a lot of dramatic irony but that doesnt make it leftist. And trannies making "Trans sphess marines XD" is even more annoying than nazi warhammer fans.

It's because both the troons and the nazis are being faggots about what's supposed to be a simple wargame. You get a bunch of cool little dudes, you paint them, you pretend that they're pewing at the other player's little dudes, you argue for forty minutes over the bullshit move you tried to pull, then everyone goes home in a huff. The 40K "backstory" is just an excuse to have a bunch of cool minis to sell, it was never meant for anyone to get super-invested in the minutiae of the morality behind the groups' motivations.

Because they don't care about the game, they just want to be in control of the narrative.

The lore was also supposed to just be so over the top no one could take it seriously. But in current year, missing the point is just the end result of what's supposed to happen. Imperium being so ultra-nationalist that not even its greatest warriors can live up to their ideal, football hooligan orcs, elves literally fucking a god into existence...come on, this is just capeshit before capeshit became popular. Leave it to autists (literal ones even!) not being able to just shut up and have fun with it.

I think you just have to realize how detached from reality you have to be to spend your time thinking about how to express socialist values in warhammer 40k on Reddit. Half of that sub probably think fascism is on the rise in America because people cheer for the Mobile Infantry in Starship Troopers.

As a hard line leftist who does a lot of irl political stuff I spent quite a while trying to answer that question and the only conclusion I came up with "because I'm a complete fucking loser who wastes his time on asinine minutae since my life is small and pointless." I mean the memes fucking suck and they a-log that fat cuck arch warhammer 24/7, calling them marxist is a stretch in off itself.

This.

I would also argue that those people started shitposting about it, got into one too many slapfights with rightwingers and tunred this into a crusade.

I find the idea of people opposing gatekeeping and calling out as ALWAYS BAD is somewhat stupid.
It's always portrayed as evil nerds trying to take all the fun to themselves which I think is not even in their power.
Communities usually have strict sets of terms, rules on behavior and, oh horror, TRADITIONS they keep. It's not a fast process to integrate yourself into one, but verry rewarding as you feel yoursslf sorta like part of a family.
I think anti-gatekeepers make matters worse by trying to divide communities by implying there is a group that, ironically, doesn't belong anymore, which makes theese people hypocritical as fuck in terms of how they handle people who have different interests.
All the statements like "X for everyone" are usually followed by "You won't be missed" or "It's not only for those looser basement-dwelling nerds anymore".
Ever since DnD hitted mainstream it's been suffering through identity crysis as a lot of new people started flooding in, and I think the same is happening with Warhammer on some level.
The only saving grace is that tabletop cannot be moderated like vidya, so everyone is left to their own devices on who and how is to play with.

Yeah, it's why you'll occasionally see bitching online about how so and so game store is so insular, or this one store's nice but there's a couple of groups that are dicks. It makes me want to drive to their homes so I can yell that they're in our fucking house, and to stop being made when the "evil nerds" take it back.

This whole thing just feels dumb. No races above medium or below small, no damage differences, no ability score differences. For a company trying to appeal to theater kids, it honestly feels more sterile than the previous editions.

Despite nerd things becoming more popular by the years, people still dissasociate themselves from thrm, instead prefering to identify with more socially acceptable "geeks". You think people would be more thankful to the people who demonstrated their dedication and made the road for newcommers, but instead they not just take things for granted, but also shit on those who did it. Same happened to vidya, comic books, and this is what is happening to tabletop.
This is a core reason why all the "Gates" are happening. Because the community who they tried so hard to build, and which was probably the only place where they felt like they belong now wants them gone.
Nerds are dead and Geeks killed them.

Nice doompill. Nerds have gotten the shit end of the social stick all their lives. Sure, there's some thin-skinned ones but most of them aren't so fragile. Honestly, the real nerds will keep playing the older editions and saying fuck it to the new ones. A new flavor of the month will come out, and all the normies will move on, leaving behind the ones that want to actually just play games and have fun. One thing the wokeists don't get is how much nerd shit is generated by the nerds themselves. They're the ones buying adventure paths and not letting people climb trees because their little handbook doesn't cover it. Already they're starting to slowly fade. It'll be a process, but the nerds will be fine. It's just another round of bullying to endure.

What happens can be described as cultural gentrification, aka "young" "hip" people flooding into a counterculture, appropriating it and ousting the outcasts that were there because mainstream culture was not there to accept them.

Happened in the 80s' with the Satanic Panic, happened in the 90s with 3E vs 1/2E, happened with the Woketards and X Cards. In the end the game still persisted in different flavors and types and they still went on because the folks that have that spark of imagination and willpower to succeed still continued to play all at folks screaming at them they are Devil worshiping, OP Murderhobos, and *ists with *phobes.

The limit to TTRPG is your imagination and not a single person, entity, country, company, movement can destroy someone's imagination.

To quote the shakespearean movie Riddick "What is dead can never die"*


*not from Game of thrones, fuck off.

In the end, we just went from Satanists to dirty nerds to -ists and -phobes. The names we're being called changed, but we're still around.

I can't wait for a new crop of non-tard publishers, though. Because reusing old content is fine (there is a lot of material for older RPGs), but I could really do with a more convenient way to play Dark Sun than having to dig out the AD&D book.

I've made this point before, but it continues to aggravate me: it's worse this time because the Christian fundamentalists never managed to infiltrate or convert the people actually making the games. That's not the case with the wokies. Find me a major RPG maker who's not woke and I'll happily give them business.

That is because fundamentalists are, ultimately, well-meaning but misguided. They only wanted to save you.
Feminists, on the other hand, and subsequent wokie sects, simply want to ruin things. They can live without, after all.
