Furry Foresters: The Ar-Thana for Blood & Treasure


These sleek, feline humanoids are nomads of plain and forest. Prone to sudden outbreaks of pique and playfulness, they are remarkable physical specimens, masterful hunters and scouts. Ar-thana favour the Neutral alignments.

Ar-thana average 58” in height and have a movement rate of 40’ due to their exceptional speed. The Ar-thana appear very much as bipedal panthers, lightly clad (if at all). They range in colour from deep black to russet and gold. Their lives are short, however, 60 years at most. Ar-thana begin play with their own language, Ar-thana.

Ar-thana are extremely agile and engaging, but they are prone to foolishness and inattention as well as being somewhat frail, gaining +2 to Dexterity, +1 to Charisma but suffering a -1 penalty to Wisdom and Constitution. They have the following minimum/maximum ability scores: STR 3/17, INT 3/18, WIS 3/17, DEX 9/19, CON 3/17, and CHA 3/18. They roll 2d4 +1 for their Heritage score, for they generally live at a low level of ‘civilisation’, although their society is highly complex.

Ar-thana can only be surprised on a roll of 1-2. They also gain a +1 to all Tracking task checks and saving throws against breath weapons, rays and traps. In tall grasses and forests, Ar-thana may add +2 to any Move Silently and Hide in Shadows checks.

Ar-thana have the following classes available: Acrobat, Barbarian, Bard*, Beastmaster, Druid, Lucky Bastard, Monk, Priest (Creation), Ranger, Ronin, Scout, Sentinel, Shaman, Thief, Tomb Raider.
They may also pursue the following multi-classing options: Druid-Monk, Shaman-Monk.

*Ar-thana Bards are known as Plainsingers, and replace the Bard ability to Carouse with the Ranger’s Tracking skill and the ability to Open Locks and Pick Pockets with the Druid’s ability to leave no trace of their passage. They learn Basic Druid spells instead of Magic-User spells, and must be Neutral in alignment.

Apologies for the long absence: it's been a rather crap year so far, with health problems aplenty in my family. Hope you like the Ar-Thana!
