Mothmen! Art! Samples!
Our art team and writers have been hard at work putting together an indepth preview of Foundry Ridge for your viewing pleasure, but while they put the finishing touches on the DM side of this week's updates, we'd like to show off some of our player options.
As you may have seen in the comments, Nightfall will offer three new player races. Let's look at one of them right now, the Mothmen of Solenset or Lepidopterans.
Example Lepidopteran Racial: Grisly Trophy – When the escalation die is three or higher, once per turn you may add a d8 to a single damage roll for an attack or spell.
Much is said about the Mothmen of Solenset. Some liken them to playful if eerie pixies inhabiting dark forests and cave systems throughout the realm, others suggest the comparison is more akin to the cruel Drow and their barbarous empires built on conquest. Both could not be further from the truth.
The Lepidopterans usually live alone or in mated threes, only coming together at certain locations to breed or trade. Lepidopteran status is based upon the size and shimmer of their wingspan and most Lepidopterans would do anything to increase it.
It is rumored among Lepidopterans that the organs of other humanoids grow wings the fastest, and the flesh of intelligent creatures adds to their lustre. This belief has led to their increased isolation from both each other and other intelligent races.
Lepidopteran adventurers may eschew their cannibalistic traditions in favor of gaining status among other sentient races, or they may embrace them, taking trophies from their defeated foes. They adorn their stunning wings with colorful paints made from the blood of their victims, and teeth are a common medium for Lepidopteran jewelry.
