Earth Genasi

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

Racial Traits

• 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.

• Level Adjustment +1: Earth genasi are slightly more powerful and gain levels more slowly than other races.

• Favored Class: Fighter. An earth genasi's fighter class does not count when determining whether he takes an experience point penalty for multiclassing.
