Centaur centaur2.jpg

Centaurs are a race of creatures whose upper bodies resemble humanoids and lower bodies resemble those of equines. They have thrived for centuries in the remote wildernesses. They tend to be hedonistic and enjoy life's pleasures such as wine, music, and food.

Armor Restriction Armor designed for bipedal creatures is less effective when used by a centaur. When wearing armor designed for a human (or similar creature) your Armor Class is reduced by 1 if you are wearing light armor, by 2 for medium armor, or by 4 for heavy armor. To overcome this penalty, you must wear specially designed armor that incorporates additional barding to protect your lower body. This exotic armor costs four times more than comparable type of armor and weighs twice as much.

Mount Restriction Due to your body shape, you cannot ride any mount. However, you can carry another size medium or smaller creature on your back. Your speed is reduced by 5 feet while carrying another creature this way.

Centaur Names The usual centaur name sounds long and dignified to average folk.

Male Names Trephas, Hermodetes, Delphanas, Orion, Chiron, Melanodes.

Female Names Eliana, Isphiria, Olinia, Eucleia, Paladia, Millerna.

Age Centaurs have a longer lifespan than that of humans. They reach adulthood in their late teens and live longer than a century (closer to two).

Alignment Centaurs tend to be chaotic neutral, seeing the irrelevance of good and evil, and believing that nature is the most important aspect of the world. Centaurs will defend their lands from any they consider a threat, be the enemy good or evil.
