Basitin (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Basitins are a little-known race of bipedal, long-eared, brown-furred, sentient animals. They average between 5'6" and 6'2" in height, though it is not unheard of for one to reach heights of 6'8". Having significantly more muscle mass than humans, Basitin tend to be about 10-15% heavier than a human of the same build. Most Basitin have brown fur, though greys are fairly common as well, especially as they age. Most Basitin have golden eyes, though hazel, blue and grey are not unknown. Basitin with green eyes are extremely rare and tend to be seen as individuals with some form of significant destiny.
Basitin tend to keep to themselves, so relations between them and the other races are rare, but, when they do interact with the outside races, they tend to have higher opinions of the more lawful races, such as dwarves. However, Basitin society is extremely structured and regimented, with most of them obeying orders without question. As such, once someone has a Basitins loyalty, it is unwavering and unquestioning.

Magical Restrictions: Basitin suffer a unique restriction. Most races possess some form of direct connection with magic, which is what allows for the development of sorcerers and similar spellcasters. Basitin, for an unknown reason, lack this connection. This means that Basitin cannot become sorcerers or any other form of purely spontantious spellcaster, and they take a -4 on all Spellcraft checks, as well as a -2 on Knowledge (Arcana), Use Magic Device, and any other skill checks the DM determines as being primarily "Magic-Based". Finally, magic can be taxing on a Basitins psyche, which can cause psychotic episodes of varying degrees of intensity. The DM determines if and when this applies, but it only affects Basitin who are primarily magic users, such as Wizards, Clerics and Druids.
