Debut: Player's Handbook 3, GithzeraiD&D Insider Article
Player's Handbook 3 Debut Content!
By Robert J. Schwalb

This month's Player's Handbook 3 debut content is the githzerai, one of four races to be featured in that book. In addition to the full race entry, this article presents a brand-new githzerai paragon path -- the vengeance warrior known as the rrathmal -- as well as several racial feats for your githzerai character. All of this content comes directly from the pages of next year's Player's Handbook 3, and you get to see it seven months before everyone else: just another of the great benefits of being a D&D Insider!

The githzerai are descended from an ancient race once held in thrall by mind flayer overlords. After the bloody uprising that won these people their freedom, ideological differences split them into two races: the githzerai and the githyanki. The githzerai rejected the cruel warmongering of the githyanki and withdrew to the Elemental Chaos and remote locations in the world to follow a path of self-reflection, harnessing the power of the mind and soul. Centuries later, the githzerai remain in such locations, leading disciplined lives and observing their surroundings to determine their place in the universe.
