D&D 5e Geniekin

Having read the other blood of books and ARG i was pretty excited by the prospect of blood of elementals. Shame it has very little new crunch, instead filling half the book with info on the planes. Anyway, i still think the geniekin races are great, especially for an arabian setting. So here are my conversions for 5E geniekin, as usual adapted to fit 5E spells as needed. As usual if you don’t like something change it!!

For background information and names see the Pathfinder advanced race guide or blood of elementals by paizo.

All the main 4 races get elemental affinity. When the character casts a spell that matches their element they can choose one of the following bonuses:

  • count as 1 level higher
  • + half proficiency bonus to attack roll
  • + half proficiency bonus to spell DC
  • + half proficiency bonus to damage roll
