# D&D General30 humanoid races, 30 way to mix blood

#### le Redoutable

##### Call me the Gaspi
You begin to play with one race at 1st level;
Then each time you climb a level you mix blood with an unknown race;
Each race provides special abilities, a +stat and a -stat;
To resolve an action you roll 2d6 , then add/substract the indicated stat.

For example, a 5th level pc may have
The race which provides +1 to Str and -1 to Con,
+
The race which provides +1 Str/ -1 Dex
+
The race which provides +/- Str/Int
+
The race which provides +/- Str/Wis
+
The race which provides +/- Str/Cha

For a total of
+5 Str / -1 Con / -1 Dex / -1 Int / -1 Wis / -1 Cha
+5 from the character's level

Your math is very wrong...

30 races means 29*30/2 = 29 * 15 = 435 ways of mixing your blood + 30 races without mixed blood.

I should have printed " 30 slots to mix blood "

Thanks for the correction ( I was feeling a little exalted )

Or 870 if you discriminate between father and mother.

Thanks TerraDave for correcting the typo!

Okay okay this is for #combinations...

870 plus 30 pure blood.

I feel the combing of lineages purely for mechanical benefits to be pointless.

The story of why a character has a hobgoblin father and a dragonborn mother to be exceedingly more important than what numbers you add to the characters' stats.

and what about your Global Level = the number of Bloods you have mixed ( with a minimum of one Blood and a maximum of thirty Bloods )
( each Blood provides special abilities or the like )

Blood is not something you acquire as you gain experience in life... Even in all the fantasy I've read over the years, I can never recall someone born as an X (human) and "grow" into a Y (orc). Just does not make any sense to me.

Isn't this what "classes" or "feats" are? i.e. things that change as you gain experience in life?

I too do not understand how this would "work".
