Voidborn Race - Galaxies Given Life in D&D 5E

This time a new race, that belongs to the stars. I created them as an opposite to the starborn race I posted a couple of weeks back.

The subraces was inspired by blackholes and the various phenomena that they cause, such as the potential death of the universe :)

The 3rd subrace is a Patreon exclusive, I have to leave some cool exclusives only for there after all, and this will be part of the Secrets of Gravity Magic Compendium coming out in a few days.


Tomorrow I'll be posting content from the Bloodborne Inspired Setting I've been working on for quite some time (that is coming soon to Kickstarter).

In the meantime, take care!

Voidborn

The darkness of the heavens birthed the stars, yet left behind a somber secret. The void, a hungering entity that feeds on the very light that gave life to many worlds. Voidborns are shards of the Void, beings of astral power and knowledge. They appear throughout worlds, sometimes as independent creatures, other times as agents of the void, trying to propagate its will.


Traits


  • Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 2.

  • Age. Voidborns are birthed sentient and aware, they have no notion of adulthood. They can live up to 200 years old. Although plenty of them have never known the release of death.

  • Size. Voidborns have the same range of height as humans, although they weigh up to 20 times more. Your size is Medium.

  • Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

  • Superior Darkvision. Your eyes were made to see through the darkness of the void. You can see in dim light within 120 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can't discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

  • Inconsequential. You are born a mere speck within the endless void of space. You have resistance to necrotic damage.

  • Vacuous Body. A shard of the void is trapped inside of your body and can act as a pocket dimension. As an action, you can store or retrieve inanimate objects from inside it. This dimension can hold up to 30 pounds, not exceeding a volume of 1 cubic foot.

  • Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and Deep Speech.

  • Subraces. Voidborns are born with varying powers, separating them into 3 subraces: Boundless, Sundered and Demise. The DC for abilities given by the subraces is equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier.


Boundless Subrace Traits

  • Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 1.

  • Astral Attraction. Starting at 3rd level, you can use your action to unleash the shard of voidt trapped within you. Each creature of your choice within a 20-foot radius centered on you must succeed on a Strength saving throw or be pulled 20 feet in a straight line towards you and take force damage equal to your Strength modifier. Once you use this trait, you can't use it again until you finish a short or long rest.


Sundered Subrace Traits

  • Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 1.

  • Worm Hole. Starting at 3rd level, you can step into the hidden paths created by the void. You can teleport up to 25 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see as a bonus action. Once you use this trait, you can't use it again until you finish a short or long rest.
