Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Slaad-Blooded

(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

The slaad are creatures of primal chaos, a force that influences events throughout the Three Worlds. Sometimes a red slaad's egg implant or a blue slaad's fever has the unexpected result of a creature physically similar to the afflicted humanoid rather than a true slaad. Sometimes the slaad are mixed with humanoids in arcane experiments, and sometimes a flow of primal chaos simply mutates those who live near it. Whatever the cause, the resulting creatures are described as being Slaad-Blooded. These creatures are often fearsome warriors, using their strength and ferocity to great advantage. This bloodline only offers a minor and intermediate levels, as anyone with a major slaad bloodline would effectively be a chaond or a wuggle.

2 A slaad-blooded character's chaotic nature means that they resist a different type of energy each day. Roll 1d10 once per day to determine type of energy: 1-2 acid; 3-4 cold; 5-6 electricity; 7-8 fire; 9-10 sonic.

Special: A Slaad-Blooded character may never take levels in the Monk class. The inherent chaos in their nature makes them incapable of accepting the discipline required for the class.
