Races Beyond the Ordinary

Go beyond the standard fantasy races and play a new breed of hero. These intrepid adventurers forge their place in legends with beak, claw, spell, and sword. Now you can play one of these heroic races in your home game and battle monsters like never before.

Book of Heroic Races: Player Races 1 introduces a number of playable races for your fifth edition game. This 16-page supplement gives you everything you need to include the following races at your table:

  • Catfolk, including the near-human subrace of faol and the decidedly feline subrace of saebul
  • Hagborn, with three subraces distinguished by the type of hag that gave birth to them: green hagborn, night hagborn, and sea hagborn
  • Everborn, featuring two subraces defined by how they communicate with their past lives: in vivid dreams or through mental personifications
  • Tengu, including a city-dwelling cosmopolitan subrace and a nomadic variant that travels the countryside
  • 7 New Subraces for existing core races: dwarves, elves, gnomes, and halflings

New Races!


Disclosure: I received a free review copy.

Let me begin by saying that this product impressed the hell out of me.

It clocks in at 16 pages with 12.5 pages of content (1 page for cover, 1/2 a page for credits, 1 page for OGL, and 1 page for an ad). Formatting and presentation are excellent, with every usable part of the page being well utilized for space.

Additionally, the content is excellent. The races provided are not only fitted with sound rules, but also with excellent exposition that makes the races stand out.

Provided within are Catfolk, Hagborn, Samsaran, and Tengu, and sub races for each. Also, the book provides number of new sub-races for dwarves, halflings, elves, and gnomes. Though the latter is a lot more brief, it is an excellent example of what a sub-race can be.

The highlight of this product is the showcasing of the racial write ups, giving the utmost attention to the society and background considerations for the new races. While the mere fact that this product provides new races at all is amazing (considering the hitherto infancy of 5th edition), this product blazes a trail and leaves an example of what new race books for 5th edition should be, and look like.

Bravo. 5 out of 5!

I just uploaded a new version of Book of Heroic Races: Player Races 1. We changed the name "samsaran" to "everborn" to better reflect the way 5e names their races. Also we added more artwork for each race to help you visualize your character as a member of each race.

I noticed something weird here. I downloaded this file and saw the changes from the previous version, but this product's entry in "My Downloads" still gives a "Date Download Last Updated" of September 2015. I would not have known to look for this update without the posting in this thread.

Paizo may not have registered it in their database yet. Or maybe because it had the same name as the previous, it is not registering it as a different version. I don't know.
