    Default new 3.5 base race (PEACH)

    Tell me what you think:

    En-zula
    the En-zula are a human subrace who, due to a necromantic ritual, draw life from negative energy

    Physical descripion: En-zula appear mostly human, though pale and wiry.
    Their hair is blood red, bright green, electric blue, or a similarly vibrant colour. The "whites" of their eyes are pitch black and their pupils are pure white, with a purple or yellow iris. They often tattoo paterns onto their skin

    Personality: En-zula beleive others see them as abominations and are thus highly suspicious of others. they are very determined- once they set their sights on a goal, they will stop at nothing to acomplish it, even if it takes years

    En-zula traits
    *Humanoid(human subtype)
    *Medium size
    *Void soul: En-zula are healed by negative energy and damaged by positive energy
    *Drain resistance: anyone targeting an En-zula with an energy drain effect must make a caster level(or hit dice) check DC11+the En-zula's character level to succeed. An En-zula automatical succeeds their fortitude save to remove a negative level after 24 hours
    *+2 racial bonus on intimidate checks: En-zula are naturaly unsettling
    *Darkened spirit: En-zula gain a +2 bonus on charisma based checks made against undead and an En-zula who becomes undead gains +2 turn resistance
    *Favoured class: cleric. En-zula clerics usually draw power from the negative energy plane itself(destruction, death and evil domains)
    level adjustment:+0

    I like the flavor, but the check with a base DC of 11 seems a bit odd, as they're usually 10. Not necessarily bad, but just something I noted.

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.

    I based the DC on drow spell resistance

    doesn't that mean that they are auto immune to such spells as mummify or dessicate, as those spells are necromancy spells that allow a saving throw?

    isn't that a little over powered for a 0 level adjustment race that they get immunity to over half of the necromancy spells?

    "Negative Energy" doesn't mean "Necromancy," though. Unless a spell has the [Death] descriptor or deals negative energy damage, I wouldn't classify it as a negative energy spell; mummify and desiccate should affect them just fine.
    Better to DM in Baator than play in Celestia
    You can just call me Dice; that's how I roll.
