Quick Background: For Origins my son wanted to run two smurf adventures. We decided to do one with the Toon system for a light-hearted game of horror and one using PFRPG rules for a grittier feel. Of course to make smurf characters for PFRPG it is necessary to create a smurf race. I thought I would share.
Smurfs are small blue fey, three apples tall, who dwell in mushroom villages and who live on a diet of sassafras and smurf-berries. They speak a variation of common called Smurf, in which normal words are substituted by various inflections of the word smurf. Only smurfs really and truly understand their language, but they have no problem understanding the Common tongue spoken normally.
Smurf characters have the following characteristics.
+2 Dexterity, +2 Wisdom, +2 Charisma, -4 Strength: Smurfs, being tiny, are physically weak, but they have an innate grace, wisdom and charm all their own.
Tiny: Smurfs are tiny creatures, standing a uniform 9 inches in height. Being tiny they gain a +2 bonus to their AC, a +2 size bonus on attack rolls, a -2 to their CMB and CMD, and a +8 size bonus on Stealth checks.
Sprinty: Despite their size, smurfs move as fast as a human, having a base speed of 30 feet.
Smurf-light vision: Smurfs can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
Practiced Smurf: A Smurf chooses a single profession or skill to specialize in. They gain a +4 racial bonus for that skill.
Smurf Footed: Smurfs gain a +2 racial bonus to Acrobatic and Climb checks.
Smurfs-in-Arms: Whenever two or more smurfs attack a single target, each smurf gains a +2 attack bonus which is treated in all respects as a flanking bonus, including, if applicable, for sneak attacks.
Smurf Berries: Whenever a smurf eats a smurf berry, a berry which grows naturally around smurf villages, they benefit as if they have eaten a goodberry, healing up to 1 hit-point (maximum 8 hp per 24 hours) and benefiting as if they had just eaten a full meal. Despite the nourishment a single smurf berry provides a smurf, they rarely limit themselves to a single berry at a time. Only smurfs gain this benefit from a smurf berry.
Smurf Luck: Smurfs gain a +2 racial bonus to all saving throws.
Smurf Immunities: Smurfs gain a +2 racial saving throw bonuses against all spells and spell-like abilities.
Weapon Familiarity: A Smurf can choose a single weapon, including an exotic weapon. The smurf is considered proficient with that weapon, and gains Weapon Focus for that weapon.
Beast Speech: When taking a rank in Linguistics, or choosing initial languages, instead of choosing a normal tongue, a Smurf can choose to learn to speak to a specific race of animal, as with speak with animals. They may choose to learn multiple animal tongues in this way.
Languages: Smurfs understand Common, but they speak their own variation called Smurf. Smurfs also speak Sylvan. Smurfs with high intelligence scores can choose from the following: Beast Speech (as above), Draconic, Elven, Giant, and Goblin.
