Young Creature[edit]

Prerequisite

A creature qualifies for the "Young Template" when its age is less than 90 % of its race's "Age of Adulthood" listed in their respective descriptions. For Example, a Human is considered young at the age of 16 and lower (From the middle teens down), whereas an Elf is considered young before the age of 90.

Statistics[edit]

The creature's statistics don't change, except for their abilities, languages, and skills. Recalculate the creature's Challenge Rating accordingly to adjust for these changes:

Abilities. A Young creature has more natural agility and an untapped source of physical energy, but is green to the ways of the world. A young Creature's Dexterity increases by 4, and their Constitution is increased by 2; however, all mental statistics (Intelligence, Wisdom, Charisma) are each decreased by 2.

Languages A young creature loses one Language proficiency, with the exception of their own racial language.

Skills A Young creature loses one skill proficiency.

Alignment

Traits[edit]

Reactive A young creature gains a +2 bonus to their Initiative rolls.

Reduced Size A young creature's size is one category smaller than the base size of its respective race. This can change what equipment a creature may be able to use effectively. A Small creature has disadvantage on attack rolls whenever he uses a Heavy weapon. A Tiny creature, however, cannot use Heavy weapons at all, and has disadvantage to attack rolls whenever he uses a Versatile weapon.


Actions[edit]

A young creature's actions do not change.

CR Calculation[edit]

Recalculate the creature's CR based on the new abilities, skills, languages, and size.
