A githyanki that works more appropriately with the Tome of Battle and martial maneuvers.

Tome of Battle painted a new picture of githyanki as maneuver-focused warriors who specialized in the use of the Diamond Mind. This is cool, but it doesn’t really fit with the traditional githyanki race. The githyanki presented here puts the two together cohesively while scrapping the traditional psionics bend that’s best left to the illithid.

Racial Traits[edit]


  • Humanoid (Extraplanar): Githyanki hail from the Astral Plane, so obviously they're not of this world.
  • Medium: As a Medium creature, a Githyanki has no special bonuses or penalties due to its size.
  • Githyanki base land speed is 30 feet.
  • Darkvision: A githyanki can see in the dark up to 120 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and a githyanki can function just fine with no light at all.
  • Diamond Mind Disciple: A githyanki that takes the Martial Study or Martial Stance feat has an effective initiator level equal to their character level (instead of using the normal ½ character level for non-adept classes) if the maneuver learned is from the Diamond Mind martial discipline. The githyanki’s maneuver-like abilities also count as maneuvers known for the purposes of selecting additional maneuvers from these feats.
  • Maneuver-Like Abilities: Any githyanki can use the Moment of Perfect Mind counter as a maneuver-like ability. When a githyanki reaches Challenge Rating 3, they can also use the Emerald Razor strike. Both of these maneuvers are from the Diamond Mind martial discipline.
  • Githyanki are automatically proficient with either the longsword or the greatsword; which of these they have proficiency in is up to the particular githyanki.
  • +4 bonus on Concentration checks
  • Automatic Languages: Githyanki.
  • Bonus Languages: Abyssal, Common, Draconic, Githzerai, Infernal, Undercommon.
  • Favored Class: Crusader or Warblade
  • Level Adjustment: +0
  • Effective Character Level: 1
