    Default Tiny Campaign

    I have been DM-ing a group for a whil now and have decided to mix things up in the past several months. One of the mix-ups I have planned is for altenate campaigns in which the characters play as what can only be described as monumental or miniscule sized characters... In the large campaign, to which I have given the name 'Eros' everything is huge and some of the races I've brewed up (not sure if any existed before) include Living mountains and fortresses, world tree sized treants, and a large humanoid pistol shrimp. All of the Eros Campaign takes place on a planet that is scaled up to them however there are still regular sized races and even a faction of such dedicated to taking these collossus down. The tiny campaign however I need help making races for. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. So far I have ideas for multiple varieties of humanoid wisp like creatures and small sentient fungi and plants as well as the more typical faeries, sprites, pixies, and brownies. I plan on placing them in a world almost twice the size of our own however and making the average height (compared to human on a normal scale) about six inches.

    Well classics would be mouse/rat people or insect people. If there are "human" sized creatures maybe even discarded an now animate toys and dolls.

    Some mechanics in mouseguard might be relevant to you, since it's all about living in a giant world where things much larger than you try to kill you.

    That sounds perfect actually as I like to give my campaigns a steampunk-esque twist.

    A while back I polished up a version of Plush Sapiens inspired from this thread.

    Perhaps you could adapt something from it.

    There is also Riven_T_McGuire's Awakened Stuff Toy Template that you can play with (See here: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/shows...57&postcount=1 and note that I have made several creatures using this template. Also, if the 1/4 hit points is too severe for your campaign, feel free to change it).

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    I've got a red pen and I'm not afraid to use it.

    Thanks Gurgleflep for my new avatar!
