Deep within the Astral Plane float the bodies of dead gods. From these divine carcasses, the deigenae are born. They spring from the dead god’s body fully formed like in the tales of legendary heroes. Though their appearance varies depending on the form of the dead god that spawned them, deigenae are able to interbreed with others of their kind and sustain their race. The personality of a deigen is often affected by their ancestor god’s portfolio and personality.

Deigenae Racial Characteristics
Deigenae are defined by their class levels-they do not possess racial Hit Dice. All deigenae have the following racial characteristics.

  • +2 Strength, -2 Intelligence, +2 Charisma: Strength in body and personality characterizes the deigen race. Though they are not stupid they often lack the “common sense” of other races.
  • Humanoid: Deigenae are humanoids with the extraplanar subtype.
  • Medium: Deigenae are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
  • Normal Speed: Deigenae have a base speed of 30 ft.
  • Aura: A deigen that traces its lineage to a chaotic, evil, good, or lawful deity has a particularly powerful aura corresponding to the deity’s alignment (as a cleric of the deigenae’s Hit Dice).
  • Astral Speed: Deigenae gain a +2 racial bonus to initiative.
  • Gods and their Domains: Deigenae gain a +2 racial bonus to Knowledge (religion) and Knowledge (planes) checks.
  • Spell-Like Abilities: A deigen with a Charisma score of 10 or higher gains three 0-level cleric orisons that they can cast once per day. The caster level for these effects is equal to the deigen’s level. The DC for these spells is equal to 10 + the spell’s level + the deigen’s Charisma modifier.
  • Strength of Will: A deigenae may use their Charisma modifier in place of their Wisdom modifier to determine their Will save, or they may start with Iron Will as a bonus feat.
  • Languages: Common plus any one of the following Abyssal (for CE, CN, NE, or LE lineage), Celestial (for CG, NG, LG, or LN lineage), or Sylvan (for NG, N, or NE). Deigenae with high Intelligence scores can choose any languages they want (except secret languages, such as Druidic).

On Porphyra
Deigen are new immigrants to the Lands of Porphyra. Their “divine” heritage is hotly contested by avoodim and it is not uncommon for the two races to come to blows over interpretations of faith, scripture, planes, or the nature of divinity.
