View Full Version : [3.5] Akitan (Requested Homebrew Race)

2010-01-19, 09:02 PM
A requested homebrew for CTLC. The focus was to create a decent canine race with no level adjustment who was competant for both warriors and mages.

Not entirely sure if it's balanced correctly, so that's why I'm putting it out in the open instead of just PMing it. Give thoughts.

The fluff is CTLC's problem, hence the lack of it.

What do you think of the name? Unoriginal, I know, but the image in my head was definitely a jackal-headed type.

i imagined them more as akitas at first. [im sorry i read bleach, dam adorable puppy-people] which i think fits really well with the loyalty and pride idea i have.
the jackal head feels a bit too high and mighty, and too yippy.
akitites? inuites? puppy-people?
