Races of Gallian: The Hobben

Watermarked PDF

This content is compatible with the Fifth Edition of the world's best known d20-based fantasy roleplaying game. 

Strong in Body and Mind

Hobben have an average height of 6 and a half feet. They are seldom shorter than five foot ten, and any hobben below six feet in height is considered a runt.  They generally weigh between 170 to 240 pounds. They are an imposing species that towers above most others, and they possess tremendous physical endurance. hobben skin shades range from earthy ochre to is deep red, and their ears taper to prounounced points, though not as exaggerated as those of an elf.  

Hobben have hair on their head and brows, but are otherwise naturally hairless. Although it is not present in all members of the race, many hobben also have horned cranial ridges. Some also possess down-turned horns that emerge from their cheekbones. Because these horns have been viewed as a sign of strength for all of hobben history, noble families have seen these physical traits as a desirable trait in potential marriage prospects. Consequently, members of noble bloodlines more commonly manifest horns.

Despite their physical endowment, hobben do not fall back on their might as a solution for every challenge. In fact, they are known for their intellect and their race has produced many of the world’s foremost scholars and philosophers. Many of the world’s technological and scientific advancements originated within the mind of a hobben.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
