Standard Racial Traits

Your kith character has the following racial traits.

Ability Score Increase. Increase an ability score of your choice by 2, and a different ability score by 1. Kith culture tends to focus on Dexterity and Charisma, but there are always exceptions.

Age. Kith mature and age at about the same rate as humans.

Size. Kith range from just under 5 feet to about 6 feet in height, with generally lithe builds. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet, and your claws give you a climbing speed of 20 feet.

Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

Claws. Your claws are natural melee weapons, which you can use to make unarmed strikes. If you hit with them, you deal slashing damage equal to 1d4 + your Strength modifier, instead of the bludgeoning damage normal for an unarmed strike.

Shapeshift. As a bonus action, you can transform yourself into an ordinary cat. This transformation lasts until you revert to humanoid form as a bonus action. While in cat form, your game statistics are replaced by cat statistics, but you retain your alignment, personality, hit points, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. While transformed, you can’t speak, cast spells, or take any other action that requires hands ? 10 ? or speech. You can, however, communicate with other cats using a sophisticated body language. Any equipment you are wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. If you die in cat form, you are dead. Once you shift into cat form, you can’t do so again until you finish a short or long rest.

Feline Agility. You have proficiency in Acrobatics.

Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and one other language of your choice. This other language might be Zibahn, the traditional language of the Kith.
