Blue Rose: Rhy-Cats 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.




RHY-CATS

"Rhy-cats are the size of leopards, with coloring and temperaments similar to those of Siamese cats. Rhy- cats are the most common rhydan in Aldis, and the most closely associated with humanoids; although, rhy-cats have a reputation as both aloof and dangerous when encountered in the wild. Like all rhydan, rhy-cats sometimes choose humanoids as bonded companions."

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 2 and your Constitution score increases by 1.

Age. Thy-Cats mature faster than humans, reaching adulthood around age 3. They age noticeably faster and rarely live longer than 30 years.

Alignment. Thy-Cats lean toward chaos.


Size. Rhy-Carts are smaller and leaner than humans, and they range from 4 to over 5 feet tall. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 40 feet.

Darkvision. You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 60 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. 


Claws and Fangs. You are proficient with your unarmed strikes, which deal 1d4 slashing or piercing damage on a hit.


Feline. You have proficiency in Athletics, Perception, and Stealth.


Psychic. You can communicate telepathically with any creature you can see within 30 feet of you. You don’t need to share a language with the creature for it to understand your telepathic utterances, but the creature must be able to understand at least one language.

Arcanum.  You can use your psychic gifts to wield weapons and shields.  When attacking with melee or ranged weapons, use your Intelligence instead of Dexterity or Strength.


Cannot Speak.  You cannot speak in humanoid tongues and are limited to the normal vocalizations of a cat. 

Limited Manipulation.  You have no hands or opposable thumbs, so you cannot easily manipulate objects. You have disadvantage on Dexterity checks using tools.
