SO, to try this, D&D races!! I am pulling inspiration from all over, however the need to kinda… ignore strictly vanilla depictions was positively inspired by the recent « canonization »(?) of Firbolgs changing into cow-folks, on account of Taliesin Jaffe’s firbolg character in Critical Function, Cadeuces. I really like that aesthetic; a number of the classic appearances of some races don’t attraction to me, so I was by no means considering them as potential races for me to play as a Computer. Taliesin pulling out this sweet cow-looking Firbolg was type of a, « oh wait » second for me. Like, in fact- it’s d&d! I can imagine stuff however I need (…with DM approval.)
One of my favourite lineages is the Tabaxi. They are inherently curious, taking part in nicely into my instigator playstyle. Their options are fascinating and helpful, too. This bestial race additionally has the benefit of getting much fan artwork to depict them as completely different real-world cat species. Diverse art can inspire many gamers to get excited about this race (not in a furry way).
D&D 5e Orc are a race of humanoids. This race is a risk to the civilized cultures of toril. Whether it is united below the management of a robust warlock or fought with stability after the years of battle, the ORC and the human tribe sometimes combine; the forces are encompassed extensively to the worry of the settled civilized land. Half-orcs are born when these alliances are sealed by marriage. A few of the half-orcs rise to become the chiefs of their tribes and the opposite venture into the world to show their price among civilized races.
