Somnus Domina: The Hanyou 2022 (5e Race Expansion)

Watermarked PDF


The Hanyou

Previously released, but reimagined and expanded into a fully comprehensive document, the Hanyou is a plane touched half-yokai race that are humanoids born from yokai and their influence. These beings have a variety of unique, often animalistic traits, and the document discusses their perspectives and place in the world, as well as the role of yokai in Somnus Domina. Yokai serve as fiends tied to the Shadowfell, who feed off of tragedy and negativity, and when they find themselves deprived of food seek to create more themselves.



This bundle is meant to introduce the half-yokai race, the Hanyou, as well as offer a variety of options for players who wish to use them, and DMs who wish to include them as NPCs. The content should provide a widely varied experience that can be used to generate dozens of Hanyou NPCs, as well as options such as subclasses that can be used for characters that aren't Hanyou. The following are included:

  • SubclassesThe updated Hanyou race reinvigorated and expanded 
  • 8 subraces, based on various origins, including the Avian, Aquatic, Fox, Giant, Grudge, Hound, Inheritor, and Manifest Hanyou.
  • Templates for each subrace can be applied to any existing humanoid NPC.
  • Ideal, Flaw, Quirk, and Origin tables
  • 10 new feats, some of which are specific to the Hanyou
  • 7 new subclasses for the Cleric, Fighter, Petal Knight, Sorcerer, Sword Saint, Warlock, and Wizard. 
  • 5 Eldritch Invocations
  • 1 Saint Myth Weapon artifact
  • 23 news spells from a new spell school, daemoturgy
  • A breakdown of yokai's place as fiends, and their role in Somnus Domina
  • Five yokai NPCs

The following are basic breakdowns of the subclasses contained within the product, all of which are themed after invoking or combating the fiendish nature of yokai but are not limited to use with the Hanyou.

Cleric - Channeler
Clerics who find themselves in service of the gods of shadow and darkness, or those who tread the line between fiendish and the divine. Those who act as clerics of daiyokai and archfiends may find themselves channeling powerful demonic abilities.
Fighter - Deuvil Dragoon
Trained to fight beasts who could stay normally out of reach, the deuvil dragoons were once trained by the Cu Chullian Shadarkai to leap through the battlefield and swarm massive enemies.
Petal Knight - Red Spider Lily
Touched by something otherworldly, the red spider lily epithet manifests powers similar to those of a fiend. They use the discord they have been cursed with to establish order in nature but often find themselves living in a world apart from those around them.
Sorcerer - Yokai Bloodline
Natural arcanists who have blood or influence that can be traced back to yokai or daiyokai. They understand the world of friends naturally and can channel their powers from it for their own purposes.
Sword Saint - Way of the Half-Breed
Teachings based on a dog Hanyou who lived long ago, and carved out a name for himself by turning away from his demonic impulses and choosing to side with his love for humanity. The warriors who follow in those footsteps learn to replicate the techniques used by that unique Hanyou.
This document includes their Sword Saint Weapon, the Cleaving Steel Fang, an artifact-rarity greatsword. 
Warlock - The Daiyokai
These warlocks make a pact with a daiyokai, gaining powers similar to their lord and becoming like a hanyou themselves. Channeling the demonic power of their patron, they serve as agents and spies among their kind.
This document includes 5 Eldritch Invocationsmeant for the Daiyokai Warlock.
Wizard - School of Deamoturgy
Studying the magics of the demonic, these wizards tap into dark powers their colleagues may consider dangerous, but they are sure to keep their studies purely academic. However, for many, the temptation to give in to the living magics they learn is difficult to resist.

(The Hanyou and all included elements were made for the Nat19: Vestige of Ophiuchus D&d 5E stream on Twitch, streamed every Saturday at 1 PM PST on the Nat19Official Twitch channel. Come join us if you'd like to see the contents in action!)

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.
