Another aspect of my Thassilonian Resurgence Adventure Path (TRAP) that has been house ruled is half-races. Unlike my D&D world where half races are not available, here they are part of the core setting, and as such I have tried to enhance the experience and make it easier to extend over time.

Orc Heritage Feats

Empty-Hand Clan – Heritage
  • Traits: Orc
  • The clan of Urglin are notably without fear, having faced down countless wasteland horrors as well as a mighty horde of undead courtesy of the Whispering Tyrant. Even against that seemingly endless army, the Empty Hand clan stood resolute and unflinching while lesser warriors turned tail and ran. Anytime you gain the frightened condition, reduce its value by 1.
Steal Eater Clan – Heritage
  • Traits: Orc
  • Born with smoke in their eyes from the dwarven foundries of their homeland, Steel Eaters are accustomed to the insufferable heat of working near an underground volcano. This grants you fire resistance equal to half your level (minimum 1), and you treat environmental heat effects as if they were one step less extreme (incredible heat becomes extreme, extreme heat becomes severe, and so on).
Wingripper Clan – Heritage
  • Traits: Orc
  • Wyvern riders by trade, orcs of this clan are trained from birth how to tame, and survive, the steeds of their ancestors Gain the “Ride” feat and Gain poison resistance equal to half your level (minimum 1).
