⭐ Ancestries & Cultures of Hemelin ⭐
Ancestries & Cultures of Hemelin introduces players to a range of Ancestry & Culture options they can use to create exciting, diverse characters. These options replace the traditional “Race” choice - and it works like this:
- You choose an Ancestry, which represents your character’s biological traits, passed down to them from their parents.
- You choose a Culture, which represents the traits your character has been taught (or developed on their own) while growing up.
You can also easily create a character of mixed Ancestry, or with a diverse Cultural background. This allows for a much greater breadth of diversity in character creation!
Characters created using this Ancestry & Culture system feel like they are the result of a living, breathing environment - instead of the static mono-cultures we see in traditional fantasy. Every Orc or Elf is different, an individual, and the character options provided in this book allow you to express that.
This pack also includes a guide on how to create your own Ancestries and Cultures, as well as handy form-fillable PDF templates that you can use to make & share them!

I’ve been mad about @r-n-w‘s work for years, and I just finally bought this book and oh my GOD I am in LOVE. I really cannot speak highly enough of Rose’s work—the thoughtful game design, the crisp graphic design, and the beautiful artwork all add up to such a stellar final result.
I’ve already started building my own custom ancestries and cultures for an environment of my own using Rose’s guides (and adapting her versions for my world), and I’m so excited.
For anyone considering running a campaign or building your own world, I can’t recommend this enough!!!

Heya! I’d really love to back the Soddenweald Kickstarter, but KS says it won’t accept my Discover credit card. Are you able to fix this, or do you have a workaround?
We have no influence over this, it’s something that kickstarter do themselves.
What I can tell you is that I once tried to back a kickstarter and it refused my card, and it turned out to be an issue with the bank; they had blocked the transaction as “suspicious behavior” so it might be that?
Either way, it’s not something we can help you with 😔
The Halflings of Hemelin were once Humans. They were transformed into small creatures with animalistic traits over millennia of living in primal forests, after leaving the great Human empire.
With Ancestries and Cultures of Hemelin, instead of choosing a Race for your character, you choose an Ancestry that determines their inborn traits, and a Culture that determines their values, languages, and other traits learned while growing up.

I just got my physical copy of this wonderful tome by Arcanist Press! It has a great introduction that explains why the use of the term “Race” in our beloved role-playing games is so problematic, and then offers a great solution for it that fits right in-between existing 5e rules.
We’ve been looking for a good alternative to “Race” for the character options we publish on our patreon, and we’re now going to do some tests to see if this model is something we could use.
I highly recommend you check it out! The free preview on DiveThruRPG includes the introduction & full rules for alternate character creation.

⭐ BIG UPDATE! ⭐
After a year of writing and testing, we created new Ancestry & Culture player options for our game world! It’s called…
We’ve made a few changes to the formula to better reflect our game world:
🔸️Cultures are based on shared geography and tradition, not Ancestry.
🔸️Each Ancestry and Culture option has multiple traits to choose from.
🔸️Completely removed alignment. Instead, each Culture has a set of Cultural Values.
We are really happy to have switched to this format, it makes characters created with it feel like they are from a real, changing world!

With “Ancestries & Cultures of Hemelin”, you choose your character’s inborn traits (Ancestry) and those they learned from their community (Culture) seperately.
So if you want to play a tinker, you don’t have to just choose Gnome; You can choose Middener culture, and then choose any Ancestry you like!!

Transforming the dungeons & dragons Gnomes from a Race into an Ancestry was a real challenge, as they are almost entirely defined by their culture.
To give them interesting ancestral traits, we gave them a connection to primordial earth – making them the fey equivalent to dwarves!
Some can transform into rocks or pebbles to hide from threats, or even travel through solid stone…

To illustrate our book “Ancestries & Cultures of Hemelin” we used a LOT of sketches that I already had, but because I rolled them all at random we found there were some gaps that needed filling.
These are sheets of extra sketches I did to fill those gaps!
After we scanned in the first lot we also found that they would be easier to process digitally if there was some more space between them, so I started doing 9 sketches per page instead of 12 from then on.
At the end of the gallery I added a new rolling table I made that includes all Ancestries & Cultures from the book + some new A&Cs we’re currently playtesting!

Happy pride, everyone 😊❤🌈
Feyblin are small humanoid forest critters that have come from the Feywild.
They inhabit all regions of Hemelin; from poofy-furred rabbits living on snowy peaks, to the scrappy rats of the junkyard-city!
There are no “Subraces” in our Ancestry & Culture system.
Instead, you choose two traits from a list in order to create your own “sub-type”!
For Feyblin, the book offers suggestions on which combinations of traits could represent different kinds of Feyblin 🐭🐰🐹
