Corrupted Human[edit]

Humans can be corrupted by arcane experiments, unspeakable planar contact or blasphemous occult rites, leaving them a shell of their former selves. However some can retain their higher-thinking and morality, albeit slightly twisted. While usually depraved and unstable, few corrupted humans are capable of keeping their bearings and becoming heroes, or simply finding their own ways. Others succumb to the madness of the corruption, becoming dangers to all that is good around them.

Physically a corrupted human looks much like their kin, at least in theory. The scars of the corruption are many, from grotesque tumors, veins pulsing with powers, slightly transparent off-colored skin, and many more. A corrupted human is clearly more or less than a human. A few become truly monstrous, being barely recognizable as something that used to be of mankind.

The balance of this article is in line with the Pathfinder Human race.

  • Medium: As a Medium creature, a corrupted human has no special bonuses or penalties due to its size.
  • Corrupted Human base land speed is 30 feet.  
  • Darkvision: A corrupted human can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and a corrupted human can function just fine with no light at all.
