Character Races

One issue with the original Dark Sun boxed set is that some of the new PC races had a lot more built-in advantages than the adaptations of more traditional races. Still…half-giants and thri-kreen were pretty cool, so I’d like to keep as much of their flavor as possible, so a lot of what might have been intrinsic powers to various races in the original setting have been changed to race-specific Esoteric Disciplines here, representing either cultural practices handed down through the generations or innate potential that requires refinement on the individual level.

Some races might have access to more of these Disciplines than others, but since characters are still going to have the same number of points at their disposal, this won’t be a problem on the character level.
