Lunar Chrysalian

Often painted as quiet observers, lunar chrysalians hold a particular affinity for nighttime and the moon. Because they are typically found in the darker reaches of the Dreaming, they have mastered the ability to move silently to avoid detection by the realm’s more unsavory folk. And, as they are often surrounded by hags or agents of the Unseen Court, they have a particular interest in occultism. Lunar chrysalians tend to adopt muted clothing and patterns, preferring to melt into a crowd or blend in with their surroundings rather than make a scene. While they can be shy, there are some who forge out into the realms beyond in search of knowledge or adventure.

Characters raised in the lunar chrysalian culture share a variety of traits in common with one another.

Lesser Darkvision. Your time in the twilight of the Dreaming has given you the ability to see in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 30 feet of you as if it were bright light , and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray. If you already have darkvision, it increases by 30 feet.
