Questions tagged [tabaxi]

For questions about the tabaxi, a race of catlike humanoids from Dungeons & Dragons and related RPGs. They initially appeared as NPCs in AD&D 1e and again in 2e, but did not appear as a playable race until D&D 5e. Tabaxi are typically depicted as a reclusive race native to tropical/subtropical jungles; in the Forgotten Realms, they are native to Maztica. (For questions about the human tribe of the same name native to Chult, use the [human] tag instead.)
