Pigs

Pig

Requirements: CON 9
Ability Modifiers: STR +1, CHA -1

Pigs are anthropomorphic creatures with muscular builds and the head of a pig or boar. They typically weigh about 160 pounds and stand between 5 ½ and 6 feet tall. Pigs are the result of magical crossbreeding experiments conducted many aeons ago, but have since then developed into a true-breeding race. Pigs have a reputation for being aggressive having surly attitudes. They have long memories, and are known to hold grudges for a very long time.

Pigs have 60’ infravision. If actively searching, they can detect hidden and secret doors with a roll of 1-2 on 1d6. They have inherited a resistance to disease and poison, receiving a +4 to saving throws against to defend against these effects. They have a bite attack they can use instead of a weapon attack (1d4 damage). Pigs may speak their alignment language, common, pig latin, and ogre.

  1. Do these replace Orcs and Half-Orcs in your Campaign, or do you still have those races also?

    1. I still have orcs, but they are a bit different from the MM: a sort of scary boogeymen living in the hills. There are no orc "tribes" of "raiders". Also, no half orcs.

      The pigs weren't really supposed to replace them, but I guess they take the place of half-orcs as a race for players who want to play strong thugs.
