Nobody replied to this; so I thought I'd repost it. I also now know what peach means, so I can use it :smile:

I am in the process of creating a new setting for d&d 3.5 and one of the races is going to be these "Animal-Folk", or Natured as they call themselves. (Basically Catfolk but not just cats.)

They were originally elves, elflings (elf-halflings), gnomes, halflings and humans.

The fluff:

They were given a magic stone (the nature stone, one of many power stones) by some of the last fey. This stone made them look like animals. The fey then tasked them with protecting the last fey forest.

The type of animal (e.g. canine) is judged by their personality and physical attributes and the power (Tiger vs house cat) is based on how much they cared for nature. The transformation begins at a ceremony on their 6th birthday and takes 2 years for the physical changes; the mental ones happen during puberty.

Their tail lengths are their height (in inches) x (0.2 + 1d10/100)
The visual differences from humans are as follows: their eyes are more cat like, they have fur all over their bodies, their ears are higher, larger and more triangualar, they have a very short tail, paw like hands and feet, they have small whiskers and their noses flatten at the bottom.
They also act more like cats: They sometimes purr and find them, cats or other catfolk rubbing their cheek calming. They may also walk on all fours sometimes and lie on their stomachs' lots. They also become more playful and often play fight with others.
