Talk:5e Subraces

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

There are homebrew Genasi subraces that should be here instead of on the 5e Races page, but they're in Elemental Evil. Should I move them here and rephrase that sentence about the PHB, or make a separate list on the page for non-PHB-based subraces? Knowlessman (talk) 21:08, 13 March 2016 (MDT)

I rephrased it. Thanks to the ambiguities in the English language, "the races in WotC publications that have the subrace trait. " could mean races with the subrace trait or publications with the subrace trait, but I assume readers will know what I mean :) Marasmusine (talk) 03:27, 14 March 2016 (MDT)

Question, can a half elf become sainted if both human and elf parent were sainted?

I don't see why not, but you would have to homebrew your own sainted half-elf variant. I would replace Skill Versatility with the orisons, and/or replace Darkvision with Holy Touch. Marasmusine (talk) 02:57, 23 July 2017 (MDT)

Removing untraditional subraces[edit]

Why are tiefling, dragonborn, etc. subraces being removed? WotC had published rules to make subraces for these races, so why would we not support homebrew content using those rules? - Guy 08:46, 21 August 2018 (MDT)

The line between subrace and variant race is thin and by including those races that don't have subraces in the official publication there is no longer any overlap. When I realized this was probably the intent of the separate pages I reverted my edits that added such pages and moved the appropriate pages to race variants. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 09:47, 21 August 2018 (MDT)

Why is Dragonborn not an official or first party race? It is listed in the PHB on page 32. Arquebus (talk) 13:06, 16 April 2020 (MDT) OK, I have moved Paisley Dragonborn to the Race Variant list. Arquebus (talk) 20:50, 18 April 2020 (MDT)

"Official Subraces"[edit]

Isn't this term a bit confusing? Taken out of context one would imagine "official subraces" refers to races published by WotC. I believe it should at least be changed to "Subraces of Official Races." (Even just "subraces" should be fine, really.) - Guy 22:06, 8 April 2020 (MDT)

I agree that using the "official subraces" wording is a bit misleading/confusing. I also dislike the "Subraces of Official Races" wording as I find it to be a bit wordy, so I would prefer changing the name to just "Subraces".--Blobby383b (talk) 14:28, 19 April 2020 (MDT)
