    Default Video Game Races [Pathfinder]

    So now that the Advanced Race Guide is out, I've spent some time doing races. I didn't get much response to my other thread, so I decided to pick something a bit more... mainstream.

    Theses are races from Nintendo games, notably the Mario series and Legend of Zelda series. They're all balanced at 10 RP, and many of them have outlines for racial feats they can take. I'd love to hear some feedback and requests for other races.

    Human
    Human Traits:
    Spoiler
    Show
    * +2 to one ability score of the player's choice.
    * Medium Humanoid (human).
    * Humans have a base speed of 30 feet.
    * Bonus Feat: Humans select one extra feat at first level.
    * Skilled: Humans gain an additional skill rank at 1st level and one additional skill rank whenever they gain a level.
    * Skill Training: A first level human chooses one skill. That skill is always considered a class skill. A human who takes levels in a class that has the chosen skill as a class skill gains a +1 racial bonus to checks with it.
    * Languages: Humans speak Common and may choose any languages as bonus languages.
    10 RP
    Humans may take feats to gain the following:
    * Two additional skills for Skill Training.


    The rest are sorted by setting:

    Super Mario Bros

    Boo

    * Boos gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against disease and mind-affecting effects.
    * Boos take no penalties from energy-draining effects, though they can still be killed if they accrue more negative levels than they have Hit Dice. After 24 hours, any negative levels they've gained are removed without any additional saving throws.
    * Boos creatures are harmed by positive energy and healed by negative energy. A boo creature with the fast healing special quality still benefits from that quality.
    * Float: Boos are immune to ground-based attacks like caltrops and are unaffected by difficult terrain. However they can still take falling damage and be tripped or knocked prone.

This improves to a move action at 7 ranks, a swift action at 11 ranks, and an immediate action at 15 ranks. Prerequisites: 1 rank in Stealth.

    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw

    and now we critique, lol.
    lets begin with the Zelda, my first love. This is my variant of what you present.

    Deku

    Spoiler
    Show
    -2 Strength, +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma. Deku are charismatic, make natural business owners and are quite agile, however, they are weak.

    Small Monstrous Humanoid (deku)

    they aren't very humanoid, clearly monstrous humanoid with plant traits.

    Speed: 30 ft.

    Glide Speed: When in the air, the deku can spin the leaves/flower petals on its head to gain a glide speed, descending 5 ft. for every 10 ft. the deku travels forward.

    Clearly missing from what you created.

    Darkvision: Deku can see 60 ft. in complete darkness, without needing light.

    Deku Immunities: Deku are immune to non-magical diseases, poison and nonlethal damage.

    (stunning immunity makes no sense as in game they can be stunned through 3 means, effectively almost every way to attack them)

    Camouflage: Deku receive a +4 racial bonus on Stealth checks while in forests or swamps. This increases to +8 if hiding in foliage with soft earth beneath it.

    Fire Vulnerability: Deku take 50% more damage from fire.

    Seed Shot: Deku develop seeds within its body, as a standard action the deku can fire one seed from its mouth as a ranged attack out to a range of 30 ft. If it hits, the foe suffers 1d4 bludgeoning and is stunned for 1 round unless it succeeds on a fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 Deku's racial HD + Deku's Constitution Modifier). This can be used only once per 2 rounds.

    another ability missing.

    Slippery When Wet: Deku cannot swim and automatically fail any swim checks. However, they can move their base speed over water, like the water walk spell. However, if they end their turn on water, they automatically sink.

    Dekus may take feats to gain the following effect:

    * Fast healing equal to 1/5 the deku's level whenever he is in direct sunlight. Prerequisites: Great Fortitude


    Goron

    Spoiler
    Show
    +2 Strength, +2 Intelligence, -2 Dexterity. Gorons are strong and renowned inventors but not very dexterous.

    Medium Monstrous Humanoid (goron)

    again, not really humanoid, more monstrous humanoid.

    Speed: 20 ft. Gorons are never slowed by armor or encumbrance.

    Rolling Charge: As a full round action, the goron can begin rolling in place to gather speed. At the start of the goron's next turn, the goron can burst forward at high speed, taking a double move action with a base speed of 40 ft.

    If at any time the goron strikes a surface, object or creature, the goron can make an attack roll as if the movement was a charge attempt. This rolling charge deals 1d8 bludgeoning damage plus 1 1/2 Strength Modifier. For every round spent rolling in this way, the goron gains an additional +2 bonus on the charge's damage roll.

    Just a boulder, nothing to see here: gorons appear very much like boulders when its rolled form. When moving, the goron gets a +10 to all disguise checks to look like a big rock. When stationary, the goron gets a +20 to all disguise checks to look like a big rock.

    Darkvision: Gorons can see in the dark up to 60 feet.

    Fire Resistance: Equal to their racial HD.

    acid resistance was never touched upon in-game.

    Hotblooded: immunity to heat effects as Endure Elements.

    missing

    Natural Armor: Gorons have a +1 natural armor bonus to AC.

    Smash: all unarmed attacks deal lethal damage. The goron takes a -4 penalty on attack rolls when attempting to deal non-lethal damage.

    I always imagine when King Goron patted Link... right into the ground

    Stability: Gorons have a +4 racial bonus to their CMD when resisting bull rush or trip attempts while standing on the ground.

    Gorons may take feats to gain the following:

    DR /adamantine equal to 1/5 the goron's racial HD (minimum 1). Prerequisite: Constitution 13, Endurance



    Zora

    Spoiler
    Show
    +2 Dexterity, +2 Wisdom, -2 Constitution. Zoras are graceful and wise creatures, but generally lack stamina.

    Medium Monstrous Humanoid (zora).

    Speed: 30 ft.

    Swim Speed: 40 ft. Zoras gain a +8 racial bonus to Swim checks and can always take 10 while swimming.

    Swim speed would be way faster than land speed.

    Darkvision: Zoras can see in the dark up to 60 feet.

    Low-light Vision: Zoras see twice as well in areas of low illumination.

    Amphibious: Zoras are amphibious and can breathe both air and water.

    Hydrated Vitality: Zoras gain fast healing 2 for 1 round anytime they submerge completely within a body of natural salt water or fresh water.

    Brackish, Stagnant, poisoned, or trapped water (such as water within an artificial pit or a bag of holding) does not activate this ability. A zora can heal up to 2 hit points per level per day with this ability, after which it ceases to function.

    Zoras may take feats to gain the following:

    constant freedom of movement effect while underwater.
    Prerequisite: Dexterity 13, lightning reflexes.

    Just a thought for the gorons:

    Just a boulder, nothing to see here the goron can remain stationary in its rolled form. Whether moving or not, the goron gets a +20 to all disguise checks to look like a big rock while in this form.

    Just a random suggestion.

    maybe a bit much for +20 but i like it enough to add it.

    Good memories of majora's mask. I've got some ideas.

    * Deku have a +2 racial bonus to Profession checks (mercantilism is common among them!) (2 rp)
    * Deku cannot swim and automatically fail any swim checks. However, they can move their base speed over water, like the water walk spell. If they end their turn on water, they automatically sink. (situationally bad, and good. 0rp?)
    * Deku can fire a Deku seed ranged attack as a standard action. DEKU SEED: 1d4 damage, range-30 ft. Feats such as deflect arrows can send the seed back at the Deku. (1rp)

    i totally agree with the middle one. slippery when wet added.

    anyone thought about the boomerang fins on Zora Link? i cant see them being racial, but what does everyone else think? what would be the statistics of the ability?

    I would make it a racial feat, but ranged natural weapons are weird.

    EDIT: Also, I gave them acid resistance because it makes sense.

    I'll make it a racial feat. A natural ranged attack is unusual in 3.5 D&D, but probably not too powerful. It's roughly equivalent to an at-will cantrip.

    Most or all of the abilities that Link gets in Majora's Mask are unique to that game. They make good racial feats, but they're not the best for PCs.

    The Deku hovering ability doesn't work well as a racial feat. It doesn't make sense for dekus to progress to full-blown flight, so I'm not sure how to write a scaling racial feat for it. (A feat for feather fall at early levels is useless at high levels, when falling damage isn't as much of a deal due to hit points and wizards and magic items).

    I added a seed spit feat for the deku. I'm thinking about ways to make it scale with energy damage at higher levels.

    EDIT: Made its damage scale with level, but it's slow.

    Good idea. I'll give them camouflage and make it replace the AC bonus.

    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw
