Porgs are humanoid boars or pigs. Their culture values feats of physical strength and eating large amounts of food. Throughout history, porgs have ended up in the employ of villains but now resist promises of power, hoping to find it for themselves.


Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 2, and your Constitution score increases by 1.

Age. A porg matures quickly, within four years, but lives fewer than three decades.

Alignment. Porgs are aggressive, ruthless, selfish, and gluttonous. Most are chaotic neutral. That said, porgs often adapt to other cultures, especially that of ores, and might have different behavior and alignments based on such interactions.

Rarity. Common.

Size. Porgs are built like burly humans. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness within the same range as if it were dim light. Absent even dim light, this vision is monochromatic.

Menacing. You have proficiency in the Intimidation skill.

Porg Stomach. You can add your proficiency bonus to saving throws against diseases and being poisoned. If you have proficiency in such a saving throw, your proficiency bonus is doubled for these purposes. Also, for any 24-hour period during which you have eaten and drunk at least twice as much as required for survival, you regain 1 extra hit point per Hit Die you expend, and you regain 1 extra Hit Die when you finish a long rest.

Relentless. When an effect would put you to sleep or force you to behave in a way you wouldn’t normally behave, you can act normally until the end of your next turn before succumbing to the effect. Also, when you are reduced to 0 hit points but not killed outright, you can drop to 1 hit point instead. You regain the use of this feature when you finish a long rest.

Languages. You speak, read, and write Common, although porgs get along well with ores and learn Gob to speak with them.
