Mentioned in numerous fairy tales, fantasy stories, and folklores, changelings are a notable character of the whole Dungeons and Dragons world. Here's all you need to know about them.
Changelings are a humanoid race that evolved from the union of humans and their doppelgangers. They have now established themselves as a distinct race throughout Dungeons and Dragons.
Changelings are shape-changers and can alter their appearance as well as voice. The fact that they can make themselves appear as a member of other races makes them apt for criminal tasks and spying. They can adjust their height and weight to some extent but can't duplicate the form of a creature they haven't seen.
Changelings usually live in large cities and stable communities. Some are open about their true nature, while others residing in nomadic environments hide their shape-shifting abilities from people. They blend themselves among humans, and other races to hide their identities with ease. Their abilities can be used as adventurers, government agents, entertainers, as well as for criminal activities.
Changelings are able to look like anyone, but their true form is marked by less-distinct facial features as compared to humans. They can be scary to look at and showcase colorless eyes with black rings on the outside. They have a pale gray or white skin tone and slender body shapes with limbs a bit longer than humans.
While they lack facial hair and body hair, their usual hair color is a light silver, blonde, or platinum. Some may have green, pink or even blue hair. Changelings are not seen in their actual form quite often as they mostly take humanoid shapes.
Changelings can only take up the form that features the same limb arrangement as them. They usually remain in the adapted form until they die or use an action to revert to their natural form. While they are mostly neutral in nature and tend to be soft spoken to manipulate people, some embrace evil. They are deceptive and prefer stealth to upfront confrontation.

Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy role-playing game, which takes you and your friends to the realms of battles and wizardry. Dungeons & Dragons, as the most popular tabletop game in the world, is driven by the creative minds of the players, where the only limitation is ones' imagination.
Players can create their personal characters and determine their abilities, which affects how they deal with creatures they might encounter while adventuring through the wondrous worlds.
When playing Dungeons & Dragons, one must not worry about winning or losing. The game has no general end, since campaigns - a storyline or set of adventures, could continue indefinitely. Therefore, a game could be going on for months or even years, leaving the players with an option to meet up whenever they like and take up the adventure where they left off. Even though the group might fall in the battles with invincible creatures, there can be no losers in the game. All players are considered winners, as long as everyone had fun creating unforgettable storylines and enduring experiences.
Considering that Dungeons & Dragons is a role-playing game, each player lies with a task to truly embody the character they are playing. The character that each player chooses, forms the essence of the game for them. To start off the character creation, it is wise for a player to acknowledge which kind of adventurer they want to portray. Considering this, a player should choose themselves a race, for example, a dwarf or a gnome, which is followed by a class, like a fighter or a barbarian. Each race has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as racial traits.
Every player has the chance to demonstrate their imagination by choosing the name for their character. This might very well be one of the most important decisions one has to make in regards to the adventurer they like to portray. In D&D, the name gives other players an idea about the character's background, personality, and intentions. So selecting a name should not be taken lightly.
