Blue Rose: Night People for D&D 5th Edition

To celebrate the Blue Rose AGE Edition RPG on Kickstarter from the good folks at Green Ronin, I thought I'd convert some stuff to DnD 5th Edition, out of respect to its legacy as D20 product.

NIGHT PEOPLE


"The Sorcerer Kings cared little about aesthetics when they made the night people, who are like monsters from a children’s tale  They are taller than humans, with stocky, muscular builds; sloped foreheads; and beady, yellow eyes. Their skin is ashen gray, and their hair is black and coarse. Small tusks jut from their lower jaw, and they prefer a diet of meat."
Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 2.


Age. Night People mature faster than humans, reaching adulthood around age 10. They age noticeably faster and rarely live longer than 50 years.

Alignment. Night People lean toward chaos per their creation by the Sorcerer Kings.
