Lobsters may be of any alignment.


Lobsters normally live in the sea's but they can so if they choose live on land.


Lobsters worship no god's in particular, but do favor those that relate to water and sea life.


Lobsters speak Aquan and Common.


The names of lobsters can be anything, as they adopt names from other cultures.

Racial Traits[]

  • -2 Strength, +4 Constitution, +2 Wisdom, -6 Charisma: Due to their time underwater, Lobsters have become a hearty race, But aren't predators and bottom feed mostly, making them weak. Using their better sense to scavenge for food rather than fight has made them very wise. They are very terrible at communicating with other creatures because of there appearance, so they are not very charismatic.
  • Magical Beast (Aquatic): Lobsters are born of the water.
