Beastfolk Races - Usagi (Rabbitfolk) Pt. 1

I previously uploaded a homebrew version of the 3.5 Ibixian (Ramfolk) to this blog as part of a project that I am working on for my homebrew setting. There are 12 prominent beastial races in this setting, each one is based off of the 12 animals of the Chinese/Japanese Zodiac. Thanks to Wizards of the Coast, the Minotaur and the Dragonborn have already knocked 2 of these animals out for me. After having updated the Ramfolk from 3.5, all I have to do is update the other 9.

Today, I will be showcasing the statblock for one more of these races - the Usagi (Rabbitfolk).

In part 2 of this race you will get background and story elements, in part 3 you will get some Racial feats. Not sure when I can promise any paragon paths... sorry!


  1. Well, my post is nowhere near as interesting, but we seem to have been riding a similar wavelength at one time or another:

  2. o God. Love the post you made actually. i remember that book from working in a game store a long time back, but I could never remember exactly what it was called. going to have to try to find that on e-bay or something.

  3. I used to play a three foot tall mutant rat called "Strid" who wielded twin short swords in a 1980's Gama World game. I looking forward to your Rat entry in the zodiac since that was a fun character for me.

  4. OOo, I think you already missed it. I did that one on the 6th. If you search for Beastfolk in my categories cloud, you will find it. :)
