Earth Genasi

Earth genasi are slow to act, ponderous in thought, and set in their ways. They are most often neutral. They appear mostly human, with one or two unusual traits reflecting their quasi-elemental nature, such as earthlike skin, rough facial features, or eyes like black pits. They favor neutral colors and simple clothing, and while some appear to inadvertently collect dirt on their clothes, others keep a neat and polished appearance.


Earth genasi are more common in the North, near the Spine of the World, where deep caves in the heart of the mountains sometimes manifest portals to the plane of Earth.

Racial Traits

  • +2 Strength, +2 Constitution, -2 Wisdom, -2 Charisma. Earth genasi are strong and tough, but somewhat oblivious and stubborn.
  • Medium size. As Medium creatures, earth genasi have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
  • Earth genasi base land speed is 30 feet.
  • Darkvision: Earth genasi can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and earth genasi can function just fine with no light at all.
  • Pass Without Trace (Sp): Fire genasi can use pass without trace once per day as cast by a 5th-level druid.
  • +1 racial bonus on saving throws against all earth spells and effects. This bonus increases by +1 for every five class levels the genasi attains.
  • Clerical Focus: An earth genasi cleric must choose a deity who grants access to the Earth domain and select Earth as one of her two domains.
  • Planetouched: Planetouched are humanoids (not outsiders) with the planetouched subtype. They are susceptible to spells and effects that specifically target both humanoids and outsiders. Charm person works against them, and so does banishment. This trait replaces the outsider entry in each planetouched description.
  • Favored Class: Fighter. A multiclass earth genasi’s fighter class does not count when determining whether she takes an experience point penalty for multiclassing.
