Basic concept:
In the Ocarina of Time Era, Ganon defeats Link and Zelda but does not obtain the Triforce. Ganons descendants become the new royal family of Hyrule. Cut to generations later, the PCs come into a world that has always known tyranny, and they aim to misbehave. I mean, I'm assuming here, but I think the odds are good.

The Hylian Empire has recently reforged its alliances with the other races of Hyrule, but recent rebellions have left them on shaky ground. The Queen plans to build any army and armada to conquer land in the mainland realms with the goal of obtaining foods and goods to combat the ever growing threat of the mysterious Withering Curse slowly robbing Hyrule of its life force.

While I'm at it, I wrote up some homebrew races befitting the setting. I'm open to comments, critiques, and suggestions on them. Do they seem fairly balanced with other races? Do they look like they'd be interesting to play? I'm also open to suggestions regarding the setting as well.

Elf (Hylian)  – same as High Elf

Elf (Sheikah) – same as Wood Elf

Elf (Twili) – same as Dark Elf

Elf (Gerudo)

  • Attributes: +2 Dex +1 Str
  • Size: Gerudo are between 7 and 8 feet tall and weigh between 240 and 300 pounds. Your size is Medium.
  • Speed: 30'
  • Darkvision: 60'
  • Languages: Common, Elven
  • Keen Senses: You have proficiency in the Perception skill.
  • Fey Ancestry: You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can't put you to sleep.
  • Trance: Elves don't need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. (The Common word for such meditation is "trance.") While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
  • Gerudo Weapon Training: You have proficiency with the spear, shortbow, longbow, and scimitar.
  • Desert Dervishes: You have proficiency in the Survival and Performance skills.


Elf (Kokiri)
  • Attributes: +2 Dex +1 Wis
  • Size: Small
  • Speed: 25'
  • Darkvision: 60'
  • Languages: Common, Elven
  • Keen Senses: You have proficiency in the Perception skill.
  • Fey Ancestry: You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can't put you to sleep.
  • Trance: Elves don't need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. (The Common word for such meditation is "trance.") While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
  • Kokiri Weapon Training: You have proficiency with the shortsword, shortbow, sling, and net.
  • Kokiri Nimbleness: You can move through the space of any creature that is of a size larger than yours.
  • Faerie Companion: Functions as the Find Familiar spell except that the familiar is always fey. A Kokiri that permanently dismisses their familiar does not automatically receive a new one, and is shunned by fellow Kokiri until they find a replacement. This should involve some roleplaying and DM judgment. Unlike normal familiars, sprites can cast some spells of their own as detailed below:

Sprite:
Tiny Fey, disposition similar to character.
Armor Class: 12
Hit Points: 2 (1d4)
Speed: 5', fly 30'
Str 4 (-3) Dex 14 (+2) Con 10 (-) Int 10 (-) Wis 14 (+2) Cha 12 (+1)
Skills: Stealth +4, Perception +4
Senses: Darkvision 60', passive Perception 14
Languages: Common, Elven, Sylvan
Fey Ancestry: Sprites have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can't put them to sleep.
Hey Look!: Sprites have advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.
Little Light: Sprites can choose to emit a soft light the equivalent of a candle. Sprites that emit a warm color (red, orange, yellow, warm white, or some mix therein) are typically positive and happy in demeanor, while the opposite is typically true for sprites that glow a cool color (green, blue, indigo, violet, cool white, or some mix therein). This light is a signature that allows sprites to identify one another even at range in the dark. They can turn this light off or on as a minor action.
Faerie Magic:
Choose a cantrip from any school that your familiar can cast at will. This spell cannot directly cause damage.
When you reach 3rd level, choose a first level spell from any school that your familiar can cast once per long rest.
When you reach 5th level, choose a second level spell from any school that your familiar can cast once per long rest.
Wisdom is the spellcasting ability for these spells.
Spells that target Self, may target both the familiar and the kokiri if they are within 100' of one another.
Events targeting the kokiri may, at the characters discretion, trigger a spell as a Reaction from the sprite (like Shield, or Feather Fall) if they are within 100' of one another. This requires both kokiri and sprite to forfeit their reaction for the round.
Every odd level after first, the familiar can swap one spell it can cast for another eligible spell of the same level.

  • At third level you can 'cast' Levitate once per short or long rest. This is a nonmagical effect, cannot be dispelled, and requires no components other than you being free to move, and not wearing medium or heavy armor; in addition the range changes to Self, and imbues the wearer with no extra capacity to lift, carry or hold extra weight beyond their normal strength limit.
  • At fifth level you may 'cast' Fly once per short or long rest. This is a nonmagical effect, cannot be dispelled, and requires no components other than you being free to move, and not wearing medium or heavy armor; in addition the range changes to Self, and fly speed is limited to 50'. It may not be 'cast' at higher level.

  • Deku Defense: Your plantlike physiology gives you advantage on saves against Poison, Resistance to Poison, and magic can't put you to sleep.
  • Trance: Deku don't need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. (The Common word for such meditation is "trance.") While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
  • Mask of the Wild: You can attempt to hide even when you are only lightly obscured by foliage, heavy rain, falling snow, mist, and other natural phenomena.
  • Survivor: You have proficiency in one of the following skills of your choice: Medicine, Nature, Survival, or Herbalism Kit.


The mainland races:
Strange folk from across the seas have long traveled to Hyrule on their ships with tall sails. Fleeing from their war and plague ravaged homes, humans, halflings, dwarves, gnomes, and genasi make up the bulk of these transplants, but other and stranger creatures besides have made the long perilous journey as well. Although most of these people have long faithfully served the Empire, or peacefully kept to themselves, dwindling resources and arable land has led the opinions of native hyruleans to turn against their neighbors from distant shores. If you want to play a mainland race I'd like you to describe the land you came from, either from your characters own memories or the stories told by your parents/guardians. It doesn't have to long or in depth, just a little something to spark some roleplaying hopefully.

You know, there are a lot of races in D&D 5e that could easily be used as-is to represent Hyrule races by just supplanting all of the flavor behind them.

It would be easier to take existing races and modify them, but if you really want to make new races out of what you have above you are most of the way there, but you need to remove all the spellcasting functions, particularly the ones available at 1st level.

There are some races that get access to low end spells but what you have done is neither of those things, and the sprite looks a lot more like something that should be part of a custom warlock patron as a pact of the chain improved familiar option.

Most of what you have done with the spells should be a racial preference for a class that can cast them, and perhaps a custom subclass for that race, but not part of the race itself.

In reply to Hendell (msg # 4):

Maybe a feat like Wood Elf Magic which gives a cantrip, a 1st level spell, and a 2nd level spell.

So long as you restrict a feat like that to the race as a prerequisite, and don't hand every race a bonus feat at 1st level, then it should be pretty balanced.

Wood Elf Magic is because you can't get it until 4th level at the earliest, by which point someone could already have Pass Without Trace anyway.

I think something similar could be done here with the racial spellcasting that Thewog is going after. Though it should be limited to the template set up by Wood elf magic for balance reasons to 1 cantrip, 1 1st level, and 1 2nd level spell.

For the Flight ability of the Rito... you could do something like what is happening in D&D AL Season 9 for Tieflings and Aasimar (http://www.dragonmag.com/5.0/#...rers%20League%20News)

When they reach level 5 they have an option of trading in other racial abilities for wings/flight.

Yes, I've toyed with that idea, but part of my story line involves the other races occasionally visiting Hyrule, and even allow players to choose regular PHB, etc. races as normal. I feel like it would be a bit of a let down if a goron met a goliath and they had exactly the same abilities. I did start with vanilla races and modified them to fit the flavor of tLoZ, and I think I'd prefer it that way if possible, but if it becomes too problematic to try to balance these homebrew races, I might have to nix that idea.


Hendell:

I did start with existing races and mod them, with the exception of the deku scrub. There's nothing that translates there. Goliath for gorons, aarakocra for rito, a mix of triton/sea elf/water genasi for zora and all the others are based off of elves of course.

Hendell:

Of the races I've proposed, three have innate spells (or spell like abilities), I can see the kokiris sprite could be problematic but I'd rather rework them than relegate them to being warlock only, canonically, every kokiri has a fairy companion. Any suggestions? You know, I guess I could just drop the spellcasting jazz  and  basically just let them be annoying flying candles. I just wonder if the kokori would be sub par with just that. What about giving them double proficiency with perception thanks to having an extra set of eyes?

The deku scrub doesn't really need plant magic, its not something they can do canonically, I just felt like they were a little lackluster as was. Any suggestions?

I get the ritos flying ability is probably a bit too convoluted, my thought process was: arcane casters can cast feather fall at first level. At third level they can cast levitate, and at fifth level they can cast fly, so I reasoned it would be acceptable to give the rito similar abilities at those levels. Maybe I should just give them fly 30' and be done with it, or as someone else suggested, just keep them grounded until fifth?

A Fairy Magic feat does sound like a good idea. Any ideas on set spells? 0: Druid Cantrip of choice, 1st: Cure Wounds, 2nd: ???

I think keeping rito grounded until fifth and dropping their flight to 30' would be fine. I just don't know what other abilities I'd give them to have said option of swapping out.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Since they’re all about healing, maybe one of these: Lesser Restoration, Prayer of Healing (still 10 min casting time, but 6 targets), maybe Healing Spirit (controversial, but on theme). All are 2nd level spell options, all thematic.

The AL options have tieflings and aasimar’s effectively swapping out a cantrip, a 1st level spell, and a 2nd level spell for permanent flight. Very much like the Wood Elf Magic.

I’d probably go with something like:

Rito Heritage:
You can cast the gust cantrip at will. At 3rd level you can cast feather fall once per long rest. At 5th level you can cast levitate once per long rest. Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for these spells.

Then give the option at 5th level for a Rito player to swap in their Rito Heritage ability for full fledged wings/flight just like Aasimar & Tieflings for AL Season 9

Re: Interest check for a Legend of Zelda D&D 5e game
Okay, I've set and mulled over the race options for a few days. I think I've managed to get them a little closer to cannon feel while taking into consideration previous suggestions. Are they mostly balanced with other races? I'm open to criticism.
I feel like kokiri having a fairy is pretty important to their character, so I dropped all their other non-standard elf abilities and picked set spells for them just for that purpose. I also added in some sub races.

Deku Scrub
Attributes: +2 Wis
Size: Small
Speed: 25'
Darkvision: 60'
Languages: Common, Deku
Ptui!: As an attack, you can spit any rock, seed, or similar item, roughly the size of a sling bullet at a velocity equivalent to that of a sling: d4 bludgeoning. Ammunition (30'/120'). Light.
Deku Defense: You are a Plant. Congratulations, you are immune to 'x person' spells that target humanoids. On the flip side, watch out for those spells that affect plants.
Burrow: As an action, you can burrow straight down into soil or sand about 5' leaving only the shrubbery on your head exposed. You are indistinguishable from a normal shrub. As a move action you may move to any of the positions described below. You can drop back down into the earth as part of the same move action.
• Head is exposed. You have ¾ cover.  You can make Ptui! attack(s) or cast spells that require only verbal components.
• Upper torso is exposed. You have ½ cover. You can take your normal range of actions (besides movement).
• Only your shrub is exposed. You have full cover, you are considered Blinded, and friend or foe can pass through your square unimpeded, you do not get to make AoO reactions.
While burrowed you have advantage on saves that would force you to move. Attacks originating from 5' away or less ignore any cover from Burrow and have advantage to hit you. While burrowed, you are effected by aoe attacks as normal. It takes ½ your movement to dislodge yourself from your burrow which refills as you exit.
Trance: Deku don't need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. (Preferably in a sunny place near water, but that's not required by law) While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams usually involve you becoming a filthy rich business tycoon or crushing the uppity humanoid fleshbags beneath your feet. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
  • Business Scrub: +1 Charisma.
    Salesman of the Year: You have proficiency in Persuasion, any one language, and one type of the following artisans tools or kits: Carpenters, Cobblers, Leatherworkers, Potters, Herbalism.

Fey Ancestry: You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can't put you to sleep.

While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
Gerudo Weapon Training: You have proficiency with the spear, shortbow, longbow, and scimitar.
Desert Nomads: You have proficiency in either the Survival or Performance skill.
Amazon Warriors: Choose a Fighting Style from the Fighter class features.

While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
Kokiri Weapon Training: You have proficiency with the shortsword, shortbow, sling, and boomerang.
Faerie Companion: Every kokiri bonds with a sprite upon becoming an adult, if not sooner. Your sprite acts independently of you, but it always obeys your commands. In combat, it rolls its own initiative and acts on its own turn. A sprite can't attack, but it can take other actions as normal. When the sprite drops to 0 hit points, it disappears in a puff of glitter, leaving behind no physical form. Your sprite reappears after eight hours of rest or meditation, during which you must burn 100 rupees (10sp) worth of charcoal, incense, and/or herbs. This ritual can coincide with a long rest.
If a kokiri casts Find Familiar, their faerie companion gains all the abilities of a normal familiar, including the cost of reagents to summon them.
A kokiri warlock that takes Pact of the Chain gains access to a noble sprite.
A kokiri that permanently dismisses their familiar does not automatically receive a new one, and is shunned by fellow Kokiri until they find a replacement. This should involve some role-playing and DM judgment.

Sprite:
Tiny Fey
Armor Class: 13
Hit Points: 2 (1d4)
Speed: 5', fly 30'
Str 3 (-4) Dex 16 (+3) Con 10 (-) Int 12 (+1) Wis 13 (+1) Cha 11 (+0)

If its saving throw result is 5 or lower, the poisoned target falls unconscious for the same duration, or until it takes damage or another creature takes an action to shake it awake.
Heart Sight. The sprite touches a creature and magically knows the creature's current emotional state. If the target fails a DC 10 Charisma saving throw, the sprite also knows the creature's characteristics (personality, ideals, bonds, flaws). Celestials, fiends, and undead automatically fail the saving throw.
Invisibility. The sprite magically turns invisible until it attacks or casts a spell, or until its concentration ends (as if concentrating on a spell). Any equipment the sprite wears or carries is invisible with it.


Goron

Boulder Brothers: As part of your move, you can curl into a ball and roll your speed +5'. Add +10' to your move instead if you are going down stairs, or a 25% (or more) grade/slope and descend for at least 10' (vertically or horizontally). This speed does not stack with bonus movement gained from classes like monk or barbarian which assume you are moving on your feet. You lose any bonus move if you begin your turn ascending. While engaged in this mode of travel it is difficult to see and hear, you have disadvantage on Perception or Investigation checks. You cannot make AoO reactions while in this mode, and can only move, dash, disengage, or make a single slam attack: d6 + Str bludgeoning. At 5th slam damage increases to 2d6 + str, at 11th to 3d6 + str, and at 17 to 4d6 + str.
