Stocky and short, these are corgi people. Cute. Stolen and backported shamelessly from 5e corginions.


Corgini are protective, outgoing, bold, tenacious, friendly, and playful. They can be a handful, or brave adventurers unafraid of danger.

Physical Description[edit]

Corgini are upright bipedal furry humanoids resembling the corgi canine species. They have hands, but are capable of running efficiently on all four limbs though this prevents them from using their hands.


The appearance of the corgini, mixed with their affable personalities, lead most races to tolerate or enjoy corginis.


Most corginis are good aligned, be it loyalty or whim that drives them. Darker impulses often stem from curiosity or carelessness rather than malice.


Corginis appeared in urban lands from a civilization long gone, leading some to imagine they were an engineered race. The truth is now lost, and corginis can be found in many urban environments.


Corginis often find enjoyment in the warmth of a sunbeam and the excitement of play, and gods which cover these topics are popular among them.


Corgini speak Common and Canine, the language of dogs. Speaking to animal intelligence dogs is possible, but only communicating the most basic and simple of concepts back and forth.


Corgini names often match to the civilization they inhabit.

Racial Traits[edit]

  • +2 Charisma: Who can resist that fluffy wuffy goodness? Not you for sure.
  • Humanoid (Anthro): Half dog, half man, all cute. 
  • Small: As a Small creature, a corgini gains a +1 size bonus to Armor Class, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –4 size penalty on special attack (bull rushes, grapples, overruns, and trips) checks, and a +4 size bonus on Hide checks, but it uses smaller weapons than humans use, and its lifting and carrying limits are three-quarters of those of a Medium character.
  • Corgini base land speed is 30 feet.  
  • Darkvision: A corgini can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and a corgini can function just fine with no light at all. 
  • Keen Senses (Ex): Corginis have a +2 bonus on Listen, Search, and Spot checks, and all three are always class skills. 
  • Nimble (Ex): Corginis can move through the space of any creature one size or larger than themselves (through they may still provoke from hostile spaces). When inhabiting an enemy space they benefit from a +2 dodge bonus to AC against that target. 
  • Quad Stance (Ex): A corgini can move into a stance on fore and hind limbs. In this stance they count as a quadrupedal for the purpose of carry capacity and stability gaining a +4 bonus on ability checks made to resist being bull rushed or tripped when standing on the ground (but not when climbing, flying, riding, or otherwise not standing firmly on the ground). If they gain the Run feat they also gain a +10 bonus to speed while in this stance. They cannot use their hands while in this stance. Changing stance is a move action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity. 
  • Slippery (Ex): Corgini may roll twice and take the better result on Escape Artist and grapple checks made to escape a grapple. 
  • Strong Jaws (Ex): Corgini have a natural weapon (bite) which deals 1d4 damage as a primary natural attack. If it is the only attack they make in the round they add Strength and a half damage.
  • Automatic Languages: Common, Canine
  • Bonus Languages: Any (except secret languages)
  • Favored Class: Any
  • Level Adjustment: +0
  • Effective Character Level: 1
