Human Traits

It’s hard to make generalizations about humans, but your human character has these traits.

Ability Score Increase: Your ability scores each increase by 1.

Age: Humans reach adulthood in their late teens and live less than a century.

Alignment: Humans tend toward no particular alignment. The best and the worst are found among them.

Size: Humans vary widely in height and build, from barely 5 feet to well over 6 feet tall. Regardless of your position in that range, your size is Medium.

Speed: Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Languages: You can speak, read, and write Common and one extra language of your choice. Humans typically learn the languages of other peoples they deal with, including obscure dialects. They are fond of sprinkling their speech with words borrowed from other tongues: Orc curses, Elvish musical expressions, Dwarvish military phrases, and so on.

The SendingStone review

Humans are a well-rounded, versatile race in any RPG. Their traits include a 1-point increase in all ability scores, reflecting their adaptability and varied cultures. They are not inherently better than other races in any specific area, instead relying on their versatility to excel in a range of roles. With a medium size and speed of 30, humans can fit in well with any party makeup, working equally well as melee fighters, ranged attackers, mages, and support characters. Humans are the perfect choice for players who value balance and flexibility over specialized skill sets.

Human is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Human Pathfinder edition. Want to use Human in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
