The bladelings were forged in the heat of battle to fight the eternal wars waging across the Elemental Chaos. Like their makers, several of these creatures have entered the Material Plane and many have lost their taste for war. Those who still yearn for the conflict of battle join militias or become adventurers.

Play a Bladeling if you want…
to be covered in deadly spikes.
to be a being bred for battle.
to be able to shoot spikes off your body at nearby foes.
to play a race that favors the ranger, avenger, and monk classes.
