Those looking for more mechanical crunch will enjoy the bloodline feats. Thank you for your feedback! Monday, 14th April, Unlike ‘Crossbreeding’, it suffers from somewhat nebulous rules for mixed race creature creation and a shaky basis for its explanation of mixed race creation for some of the more unusual creatures.


Critical Hits Great art, great subject matter, crunchy bits, these are becoming a cornerstone of a Green Ronin product and something I come to expect from them. Supposedly the two were talking and Marilyn wished that they two of them could have a child together.

As the author decided to use the template system or otherwise create half-breed creatures, and despite the explanation of logic at the beginning of the product, I sometimes found my suspension of disbelief crashing to the ground as I tried to imagine the processes of crossbreeding between two very different species.

James Ryman, Toren Atkinson and Julian Allen don’t provide a single bad or even ‘okay’ piece of work. Not necessarily a bad thing, but when the author does templates like half-titans, they get bloodlinea CR rating and a Level Adjustment. Rarely is this number the same.

Each race starts off with name, parent races, size, common information, appearance, demeanor, background, adventurers, and ends with racial traits. Starting at first level and every other level there after the autarkic can pick a survival trait. There are lots of game rules for new half-bred races, a new type of magic and plenty of templates.

It wont have hyperlinks, but it looks much more neat and clean, so I’ll be using that. Mixing standard PC races and ‘savage’ species provides a proliferation of choice for Amd and players who like to play something a little different.

One of the reasons your players will read the book and opine “Cool! Adventurers provides a paragraph or two about how these characters might start their adventuring career and how they fit into a regular party. The racial traits include the stat modifications, size, base speed, special abilities, favored class, and level adjustment.


Submit a new text post. These feats and prestige classes are undeniably best suited to half-breeds. Most often these act to augment part of a being’s natural arsenal like bite or claws or to grant the character the abilities of one of his parent races like Elven Senses.

How does the actual book hold out in play though? Moving your players into new areas always a good idea would solve your problem better.

Bastards and Bloodlines

I’m not the only one who loved this book, YES Bastards and Bloodlines approaches the rather broad topic of half-breeds between different races. Bastards and Bloodlines is a rare thing. A Deeper Look Bastards and Bloodlines is organized into four chapters.

For example, the Elven Senses feat is only available to bastarvs with some elven blood running through their veins and already have a racial bonus to Listen, Search and Spot checks.

The weapon properties include Angered, an orc property, that provides a bonus to strength and constitution when in a barbarian rage to Strafing, a halfling property that allows the thrown weapon to utilize the full attack action.
