Leyscarred

FLUFF
General
Leyscarred are humans who have been magically mutated by the leylines and manasprings of Tiat. Leyscarred are gaunt hairless humans with various mutations, some being held in high esteem for their gifts and some being shunned as freaks for their appearance.

Religion & Culture
Being human originally, there are no 'typical' gods amongst leyscarred people but due to their altered state, some of their beliefs are more 'colorful' than the average human. Many leyscarred (especially the more drastically mutated) will cluster together and form shanty-towns that they guard ferociously from outsiders.

Region
Although leyscarred are born on leylines and manasprings, they usually won't stay there and can be found in any livable region on Tiat.

Life Cycle
Leyscarred reproduce sexually. The average leyscarred lifespan is about 120 years and the common age for an adventurer starting out is 18. A leyscarred person is considered an adult at age 18.

Common Drives and Character "Classes"
Seeking material wealth, using their mutations for the greater good, or using their mutations for personal gain are common motivations for leyscarred people. Due to their potential for very high magical energy and occasional psychic-related mutations, leyscarred make natural Mystics, Sorcerers or Fortune-Tellers. Much of the more physically mutated leyscarred make a living performing in freak-shows or other types of bawdy entertainment.

CRUNCH
To generate stats for this race, roll 1 D20 down the line; any score under a 3 becomes a 3 and you roll for a detrimental mutation for that stat (for INT, WIS, or CHA roll on the Mental Mutations, for STR, DEX or STA roll on the Physical Mutations); any score above an 18 becomes 18 and you roll for a beneficial mutation(INT,WIS,CHA - Mental, STR, DEX, CON - Physical). If no score is below 3 or above 18, the player may roll for one beneficial mutation or 2 beneficial mutations and 1 detrimental mutation.
