Post Homebrew Classes/Races/Etc (Compilation)
This is mostly a compilation of stuff from other threads, but I hope to add to it soon, with additional material. This time, it's rules forward. I use a slightly different attribute modifier scheme than regular C&C for most of the races, a +2, -2, +1 scheme. A major strength of the race, a major weakness and a minor strength. Elves also have a couple of subraces and most races have some additional wrinkles added to them. A few races get extra cantrip abilities, which are at will, because in my games, all cantrips can be cast at will.

These are some additional races that would be considered rarer, some of which are a bit more powerful than the 'standard' races.

Catfolk

Acrobatics (Dexterity): Catfolk are exceptionally skilled at climbing, balancing on narrow surfaces and landing on their feet.

I like them, you should consider submitting them to Morty for the Domesday..

Thanks for sharing.. I'm glad to see others think dwarves are not small and kept the move off the short folks to 25 and I like the elves up to 35.

Post Re: Homebrew Classes/Races/Etc (Compilation)
Optional/House Rules
These are intended to be taken a la carte. More to come later.

Automatic Success/Failure: Any roll of 20 on the dice that is possible is a success, regardless of CL. Any roll of 1 is a failure. Impossible deeds (such as flying across a 100-foot chasm) are not subject to this rule.

Backgrounds: Characters can choose a background with a few helpful features, usually a social/exploration-themed feature, a skill-type feature and a few pieces of equipment. These represent whatever adventurers may have been doing before their careers, or how they might supplement their adventuring careers. An example follows below:

Noble:
Noblesse Oblige: As a noble, you are entitled to lodgings in the residences of local nobles. You will find it easier to get an audience with leading officials and will be treated more favorably by local merchants and the like. However, your privileges depend upon your holding up ethics of generosity, civilized behaviour, etc. Also, you may find yourself attracting unwanted attention from local factions or criminal groups.
Etiquette (Charisma): You add your level to all Charisma checks related to performing the social role of a noble and successfully interacting with local nobility if Charisma is a prime, and half your level if it is not.
Equipment: You gain a signet ring worth 10 gp, a set of fine clothes worth 20 gp and a purse with 25 gp in it.


Race/Class Attributes and Primes: If a character has a class or racial attribute of a particular Attribute score, but do not have that score as a prime, they add half their level to checks instead of their full level. CLs are modified by 3, or they get a +3 bonus to rolls related to that ability, depending on the CK chooses to treat Primes.

Critical Hits: If a creature hits with a roll of 20 on the dice, they have a critical hit. They roll double the damage dice that a weapon would normally inflict, but do not multiply any modifiers. For example, if a fighter gets a critical hit with a greatsword, if their normal damage is 2d6 + 4, they would inflict 4d6 + 4 instead.

Injuries: If a creature is struck by a Critical Hit or are reduced to less than half of their maximum hit points, they must make a Constitution check at base CL or suffer an Injury. If a character is reduced to 0 hit points or below, they automatically suffer an Injury. Injuries require at least a week to heal, but can be healed by magic- a Cure Light Wounds spell will reduce healing time of an Injury by one day. Severe Injuries

Injuries:
1: Head injury. You have -2 Int and Wis.
2: Disfiguring Injury. You have -2 Cha.
3: Arm injury. You cannot use the affected arm. You have -2 Strength.
4: Leg injury. Your movement speed is 10 lower. You have -2 Dexterity.
5: Severe bleeding. You have -2 Constitution.
6: Eye Injury. You have a -4 on all Wisdom checks related to perception and missile attacks.
7: Severe Muscle Strain. You have -2 Strength and Dexterity.
8: Extreme Pain. You have -1 to all rolls due to the distraction of the immense pain.
9: Fine Motor Injury. You have -2 to all attack rolls and attribute checks involving fine coordination.
10: Roll twice. You have both injuries. Hurrah!

Racial Hit Dice: If desired, characters can have one 1 HD of a standard dice according to their size and creature type. If this rule is taken, all player character hit dice should be rolled.

d3: Tiny creatures
d4: Small creatures, halflings, gnomes, goblins
d6: Medium creatures, humans, elves, etc
d8: "Tough" Medium creatures, half-orcs, dwarves, etc
d10: Large creatures, centaurs, giantkin, etc
d12: Huge creatures
d20: Colossal creatures

Resurrection: Everyone gets one "free" resurrection, that is, without consequences. Subsequently to that, if you are resurrected, you lose 1 Constitution permanently. There is no getting it back. The only way to avoid this is for someone to, in the presence of a powerful enough priest of the gods, willingly give up one of their own Constitution points. Also, each time you are raised after the first, there is a cumulative 10% chance that it will fail, ie, the second resurrection has a 10% failure rate, the third has a 20% failure rate, etc.

Shield Shattering: A player can elect to use their shield to absorb damage on a one-time basis. Light shields can absorb up to 10 hit points of damage before breaking, whereas a heavy shield can absorb up to 20 hit points of damage. Magical shields can absorb an additional amount of damage equal to 10 hit points per point of enchantment, ie, a +3 heavy shield can absorb a total of 50 hit points damage from a single attack.

Wishes: You can only wish for the same thing once, regardless of the source. You cannot wish for more wishes. Anyone who wishes for more wishes finds in an eternal time loop of asking for wishes and never seeing them fulfilled. This is a universal constant and not even the gods can change it.

Clerical Domains

At 5th level, a Life Cleric can remove one creature from the healing effects and heal 2d6 + level, and at 9th level, they can remove two creatures and heal 3d6 + level, 4d6 + level at 13th and 5d6 + level at 17th level.

Post The Lawbringer
The Lawbringers are an elite group of warriors, devoted to the principles of law and order above all others. They combine strong training in the use of arms with cultivating spiritual strength. Their goal is to create or maintain law and order in preference to anything else, believing chaotic influences to be more destructive than simply evil ones. Most Lawbringers prefer good over evil, but some Lawbringers have been known to work with devils in order to pursue shared objectives of promoting lawfulness.

Lawbringer
Prime Attribute: Wisdom
Attack Bonus: Full (+1 per level)
Hit Dice: d10
Alignment: Any lawful
Weapons: Any
Armour: Any
XP Progression: As Paladin

Merciful Blow: At 1st level, a Lawbringer who makes a successful melee attack can convert all damage from lethal to non-lethal damage, allowing them to subdue opponents without killing them.

Sense Motive (Wisdom): Lawbringers have a powerful ability to size up individuals and ascertain their moral leanings and motivation. They are capable of making a Wisdom check to ascertain the alignment of any individual they can spend at least one minute in the company of, along with how strongly that person holds that alignment, described as "weak", "average", "strong" or "fanatical".

Iron Will (Wisdom): At 2nd level, Lawbringers add their Wisdom modifier to all saving throws related to mind-affecting spells such as magical fear, charms and illusions.

Attribute Increase: At 4th level, Lawbringers can add +1 to any of their Prime Attributes. If the CK rules, this can alternatively be used to purchase an advantage or feat. They get this bonus again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 20th levels.

Spells (Wisdom): At 4th level, Lawbringers gain the ability to cast spells from a limited list. They use Wisdom as their spellcasting attribute and must prepare their spells in advance, similarly to a cleric.

4th level spells: 1 1st level spell
5th level spells: 2 1st level spells
6th level spells: 2 1st level spells
7th level spells: 2 1st level spells
8th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 1 2nd level spell

14th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 2 3rd level spells
15th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 2 3rd level spells
16th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 3 3rd level spells, 1 4th level spell
17th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 3 3rd level spells, 2 4th level spells
18th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 3 3rd level spells, 2 4th level spells
19th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 3 3rd level spells, 3 4th level spells
20th level spells: 3 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 3 3rd level spells, 3 4th level spells

Bonus Spells (Wisdom): Lawbringers gain bonus spells based on their Wisdom score, for example, a Lawbringer with a Wisdom modifier of +2 gains a bonus spell slot for 1st and 2nd level spells.

Fearless Enforcer: At 5th level, Lawbringers become immune to magical fear.

Quick Analysis: At 7th level, Lawbringers can make a Wisdom check to identify the alignment of individuals in a single round instead of a full minute.

Smite Chaos: At 9th level, Lawbringers can make a special attack, adding their Wisdom modifier to their attack roll and their level to their damage. At 14th level, Lawbringers can make this attack twice per day, and at 19th level, they can do it three times per day.

Extra Attack: At 11th level, Lawbringers can make an extra attack against opponents. (In my games, all 'fighter types' gain a second attack at some point in their progression.)

Truthseeker: At 13th level, Lawbringers can magically discern whether a subject is lying, as long as they have had at least a full minute to focus their attention upon them.

Defense against Chaos: At 15th level, Lawbringers gain a permanent Protection against Chaos effect, giving them a +2 bonus to AC and saving throws against chaotic opponents. They are also immune to possession and charm by these creatures.

Order's Gift: At 17th level, Lawbringers can, once per day, summon a lawful creature equal to half the Lawbringer's HD. This creature will obey the Lawbringer's commands for a full hour.

Order's Wrath: At 19th level, Lawbringers can summon a magical forcecage, which can maintain itself for up to a full day and is virtually indestructible- any effort to escape, magically or regularly, has its CL modified by the full hit dice of the Lawbringer. Additionally, the forcecage, which is up to 10x10 in size, can be infused with electric energy, inflicting a number of d6s equal to the Wisdom modifier of the Lawbringer every round that the walls of the cage are touched.

Lawbringer Spell List
1st level: bless, command, detect secret doors, protection from chaos, remove fear, shield of faith, pass without trace, change self, comprehend languages, identify
2nd level: augury, delay poison, detect traps, hold person, silence, speak with dead, detect thoughts, scare, see invisibility
