Iceborn (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Most iceborn are analytical, calculating and patient. They may seem slow to act, simply because they coldly judge any course of action before following through. With very little exposure to other cultures, iceborn are typically prejudiced and fearful. Few other races give them the time of day after having been so simplistically assessed, so their trading abilities are limited to races that can ignore their kneejerk judgments.

Physical Description[edit]

Iceborn are tall and stout, standing around 6 feet tall and weighing roughly 200 pounds, with females a bit smaller than males. Their skin is pale and may be toned toward light blue or gray tones. Their straight hair is typically either white or light blue. Their eyes are an icy blue and they often squint as a habit from being in snowy areas.

Iceborn men are barrel-chested and often sport long beards with age. Iceborn women wear typically wear their hair long, choosing to braid it or pull it back in some fashion. Clothes are typically furs, hides and leathers, with white animal furs being the outermost layer for blending in with their snowy environment. They often wear metal that would otherwise chill a wearer in their environs without worry. Despite the chills of their homelands, they might often appear startlingly underdressed, wearing things that might be considered viable only in a hot tropical climate.

It is not uncommon to see iceborn children running around their villages dressed only in light rags, playing in a blizzard.


Iceborn occasionally establish trade with other races, but typically keep to themselves. They find less-intelligent races grating and irritating to deal with (or rely upon) in the long term. Prejudice against fireborn is common (and accepted), and even when fireborn are given the chance to prove themselves, iceborn still often dislike them for various other reasons.


Iceborn have a slight lawful bend and are generally Lawful Neutral.


Iceborn live in icy polar regions or lofty mountains. Occasionally, they settle in with humans in these areas.


Iceborn might worship a deity with the Law domain or Water domain, though, they have a strong affinity for those deities that deal with cold.


Iceborn speak Auran and Common, and try to learn other elemental languages as well.


Iceborn are often given human names, though, if a name holds a special meaning, it is often translated into Auran. Names pertaining to cold, snow, ice, winter, blizzards and frost are typical.
