Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: There is a whole for a heavy armor wearer or similar class to get more out of this than he loses, as long as he accepts never going first in the combat order.

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

More information...

High above the clouds at the mountains top, deep within the jagged earth, slumbers soundly for passing ages, the dragon, the elder king of stone and sleep.
—Borchak Loggerdorn, amateur poet and traveling salesman, Milkneet town square as he peddled his maps to the dragon's cave.

A slothful creature could be lazy, apathetic, atrophied, starved, or otherwise unable to muster energy as it should.

Creating a Sloth[edit]

Sloth is an acquired template and can be applied to any creature.

Level Adjustment[edit]


Notes on Applying Negative LA[edit]

the Negative Level Adjustment as part of this template is designed to reduce existing LA. Example: A LA 3 character with this template would instead be a LA 1 character. For the purposes of gaining experience, a creature with this template that would have an overall negative LA counts as 1st level. If complications arise from use of this template, consult with your DM and make changes as necessary to work in your game.
