This second Open Playtest packet brings specific sub-races back to Dungeons & Dragons such as the lightfoot halfling and wood elf. This is great to give players more options to choose from but is the plan to still include all the races that were included in the Player’s Handbook at the beginning of each edition? If so will we see sub-races for tiefling and dragonborn?
We may include the races from the Player’s Handbook(s). I’d like to tie dragonborn into our lore of dragons, Tiamat, Bahamut and such, and I think that I’d also like to bring tieflings back closer to their origins in Planescape and tie them to several possible planes, rather than just the Nine Hells.
I looooove this idea...in a way. I think that the tiefling should stay from the nine hells, and that teiflings should be a sub race. There should be a bigger planner race that covers the rest (such as from the shadowfel, feywild, elemental chaos, astral sea ext)
The only thing that bugs me about this is that i thought it would be cool for genasai to be there own race with their sub races being different elemental manifestations.
what do you guys think?
