Creating your character in D&D is a process that gives the player a lot of leeway in what they want. But there's always more possible options out there that players want to choose from. For example, what's your character's Ancestry? Maybe you don't want to just play a Human or Half-Elf or Dwarf. That's where Ancestry Awakened comes in. It's a new guide to 40 new ancestries as well as rules for coming up with your own. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Welcome to Ancestry Awakened! This book brings 40 brand new ancestry options to your 5th edition game and replaces the traditional race rules with amazing new features like:
- A new way to choose and create ancestries with the Major/Minor Feature system! Now every character with the same ancestry can be different!
- Rules and narrative information for playing traditionally “monstrous” creatures as balanced, fully fleshed out characters.
- Overhauling the existing 5e ancestry options to fit within the feature system.
Back Ancestry Awakened to enjoy a treasure trove of exciting new ancestry options for your game!
The campaign is up and running now and is set to go for another 29 days.
