Talking Horses and Tiny humans as PC races.

Post by Coronoides » Thu Nov 30, 2017 10:32 pm

D&D has a long history of stealing inspiration from odd sources. The gorillion for example is obviously a Barsoomian white ape and Grimlocks are like Wells’ morlocks. I decided it was time to add my favourite novel into the mix, Gulliver’s Travels. RPG Review just published two full write-ups for new PC races for D&D 5e, Talking Horses and Diminuatives (Lilliputian-like people). These wont be suitable for every campaign but some of you might get use from them. After all tiny people like the Abutwa of Africa or Praychet’s version of gnomes appear in a lot of worlds. Ditto for talking horses, Narnia springs to mind but even Middle Earth’s Shadowfax is said to have had ancestors who could talk.

I've never read Gulliver's Travels. Are there any good maps of the setting that would go with this article?
