Earth Genasi

The Earth Genasi subrace was not included in the original NWN2, but has been added in the Mask of the Betrayer expansion.

Earth genasi are slow to act, ponderous in thought and set in their ways. They appear mostly human, with one or two traits reflecting their quasi-elemental nature, such as earthlike skin, rough facial features or eyes like black pits.

Ability adjustments[edit | edit source]

+2 Strength, +2 Constitution, -2 Wisdom, -2 Charisma

Racial features[edit | edit source]

Level adjustment: +1. Genasi are slightly more powerful and gain levels more slowly than other races. It will take more experience for a genasi to reach level 2 than it would for normal races, for example.

Size: Medium

Favored class: Fighter. A multiclass genasi's fighter class does not count when determining whether she takes an XP penalty for multiclassing.

  • Darkvision (60ft.)
  • Resistance to acid 5
  • Merge with Stone: Once per day, an earth genasi can call upon his elemental nature to make his skin as hard as stone, gaining damage reduction 5/adamantine. The effect lasts for 5 rounds or until it has absorbed 20 points of damage, whichever comes first.

DnD 3.5 comparison[edit | edit source]

  • Earth Genasi Fighter

    Instead of elemental resistance, they receive +1 racial bonus on saving throws against earth spells and effects. This bonus increases by +1 for every five class levels the genasi attains.
  • Clerical Focus: Earth genasi clerics must choose a deity with access to the Earth domain and take that domain as one of their choices.
  • Instead of "Merge with Stone", Earth genasi can use pass without trace once per day as cast by a 5th-level druid.
