Once at the center of the Astral Sea was a miraculous spectacle of power known as the Living Gate. This was a doorway to the Far Realm, the origin of horrid creatures such as the Mind Flare, though this door was not welcoming. And while the bloody Dawn War took place, the Living Gate was obliterated, allowing the dark creates of the Far Realm to ooze and crept their way into our reality. At the very destruction of the Living Gate, its precious pieces were smashed and sent hurtling through the multiverse. These pieces, filled with the powerful psionic energy from the Living Gate, began to come together in fragments and create themselves into humanoid figures. Thus came to be, the Shardminds.
These highly unique D&D characters are a whole other race on their own, with an origin story like that this character presents a completely different D&D experience between character and player. The Shardminds are filled with intelligence, and with a high potential of charisma and attentiveness because they are beings just entering the world with no prior instincts. Listed below are further details on the Shardmind to get you started on your potential character.
As we covered above, the Shardmind is unique in its origin story as it is literally a creation of intelligent pieced together shards of a once-powerful gate. Therefore, it stands alone as its own race: the Shardminds.
This psionic being has quite a few compelling abilities that set them apart. With the exception of a long rest in order to completely restore their hit points, these creatures do not require sleep, food, water, or air to function since they are an embodiment of the psychic intelligent pieces of the Living Gate. With that being said, here are the other strengths and features of the Shardminds.
Shardswarm - Small fragmented pieces bust off of the Shardmind and swarm every living creature within 5 ft. If the creature fails to beat a DC 15 Dexterity roll it will face the consequences of being swarmed and affected until the end of the Shardmind's next turn. Attack rolls also have an advantage when up against a swarmed creature, and once the swarm is gone the Shardmind has the ability to teleport up to 10 ft.
Telepath Ability - The Shardmind has the ability to telepathically communicate with any creature that has a language within 25 ft.
Psychic Resistance - At level 1 the Shardmind has a psychic resistance of 5, at level 11 this turns into a resistance of 10, and at level 21 it becomes 15.
As we can recall in their origin story, the Shardminds are spread out across the multiverse but they all began as crystals clustered together in structured union of the Living Gate.
Glistening crystal fragments molded into a humanoid form and laced with a history so darkly intense, it is surging with psionic energy and intelligence beyond compare. The Shardminds are medium in size, though they can be anywhere from 5-9 ft and 180-230 in weight. Their crystalized colors vary from green, white, red, and amber. A light lives and energizes inside of them, ignited by the psionic energy, and in the place where eyes would be are circular glows of light.
The Shardmind comes with 3 different language fluencies, these are Common, Deep Speech, and another language of your choice.
Now that the Shardminds are reformed into their own humanoid beings, what will become of them? Will the core of their purpose and origin drive them to assemble and bring together the once-mighty Living Gate and bring forth a banishment of the Far Realm creatures, or will they seek out new experiences, wonder, and challenges in this freshly new world; the choice is up to you.

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.
In this regard, we have wandered around uncountable realms, collecting information about Dungeons & Dragons naming conventions. Our mission is to lend a helping hand to players, when choosing the perfect D&D names feel overwhelming.
We have created over 60 Dungeons & Dragons name generators to cover both, player controlled and Dungeon Master controlled races and characters. With our D&D name generators, you can rest assured that you will find a name for your character that feels and suits them perfectly. All of our names are randomly generated, taking into account each race's traditions and naming conventions, so there is an infinite number of totally unique names that you may generate.
Our Dungeons & Dragons name generators allow you to choose whether you would like to generate male, female, unisex, or clan names, if the race is known to have gender-specified names traditionally.
Some races that place value on family and traditions are generally known to hold last names. In that regard, where appropriate, our D&D name generators provide your characters with both first and last names.
We hope that you encounter endless adventures, carrying a name that echoes in the realms of Dungeons & Dragons!
