Fallout - The Races Part I

Today I'm going to present my preliminary draft of the race write-ups for my 5E Dungeons and Dragons Fallout hack. I'm focusing on humans, ghouls, and super mutants. Tomorrow I'll discuss robots. These are bare bones descriptions. I'll give more detailed descriptions in later drafts.You can find my initial overview of the project here.

Humans

Humans are the default (and most numerous) race in the Fallout world. They are a varied species but share these common traits.

Languages. You can speak, read, and write your native tongue.

Ghouls

Ghouls (or post-necrotic humans) are humans who have been exposed to massive amounts of radiation, but haven't had the good fortune to die. This essentially turns them into walking. talking, decaying bodies.
