If you inform your DM you want to be a half-orc

  • The matter is, people might have been doing this anyway, but now it's in the official rules for 5e. Like, among the biggest things in DnD is homebrew and tweaking the Animal Crossing Items rules as you see fit. If individuals do not desire evil orcs, they can just not have evil orcs in their effort, it is so simple.I hear Not Another D&D Podcast and their campaign two exists in a universe where interbreeding has been a thing for millenia, so that there are no"races". Every being is a multitude of different racial aspects.

    For player characters it allow the players pick one racial"course" while using their character look however the want, and all beings are extremely"human-monster hybrid".

    Eg. Emily's PC, Fia, is portrayed as being violet skinned and fanged, slightly"orcish" in her face however long and gangly elven physique. It's a mishmash of different descriptions which works good having a"look how you want, but apply a race's features".

    Personally, I think it's a little OP because you can chose a feat on every race (a feat is essentially like a gift and a few are extremely strong), but in the end it's to make your character more elastic once you wish to play an Orc Wizard f.e. and don't have much use for your bonus strength.It's more fun because you can play some other race as any class but it makes races just another bit of fluff information that you tell your party once and they then overlook the entire game their magician is a half-orc.

    Plus the whole thing began because a group of people were whining about orcs being racist because they're D&D depiction of black people seemingly, even though humans are a distinct race...

    I mean if your in a group at which the half orc is ignored today, than it was probably going to be discounted before. It's up to the player to detirmine what they desire from the racial option, along with the dm to apply those conclusions on.The first time I saw this I legit didn't get it. . .its because the personality is a color darker? Don't these people have real issues to worry about?

    If you inform your DM you want to be a half-orc, and arrive at the table with an notion of exactly what that means from a roleplaying perspective, without having spoken to the DM about it, and your experience differs from what you expected, than that is in you.It seems similar to"caving to SJW's" and much more like just leaning into allowing good homebrew. A variety of the recent changes seem to be in the path of helping you play however you want, while assisting you never break game balance. As a rules-are-just-guidelines player, this can be super welcome.

    Wow, my personality in the game I have at the present time is battling for orc rights but im not being a dick about it. Its more that we've a team with Animal Crossing New Horizons Nook Miles Ticket intense murderer characters that want to skin orcs and cut of the feet once we defeat them. I didnt even understand people legitimately whined about"orc racism"
