Races of Ravenloft

Outcast Rating: Ravenloft is an incredibly xenophobic world, where those who appear even somewhat “less” than human are looked upon with distrust and suspicion. A character’s OR acts as a penalty to all Bluff, Diplomacy, and Streetwise skill checks and as a bonus to all non-combat Intimidate skill checks made when interacting with the average inhabitant of Ravenloft.

A character may also attempt to conceal their true nature behind a disguise. This requires a Bluff check against an observers passive Insight. The OR penalty applies to this Bluff check as well.

Devas (The Reincarnated)

The Reincarnated are extremely rare, born as children of prophecy. They are the reborn souls of legendary champions of light, and in Ravenloft they are essentially humans with a great and often tragic destiny ahead of them.
