[RPG] If A Changeling becomes a Succubus, can she fly


If a Changeling becomes a Succubus, can she fly?

More broadly, does a Changeling gain the racial abilities of any race he or she is mimicking?

Best Answer

I'm afraid not. As detailed on page 13 of the Eberron Campaign Setting for 3.5e D&D, the changeling's Minor Change Shape grants them

the supernatural ability to alter their appearance as though using a disguise self spell that affects their bodies but not their possessions.

The mechanical effect of the changeling's power is that of disguise self, save that it's not an illusion. As disguise self does not grant racial abilities, neither does the changeling racial trait. The wings produced are cosmetic; they don't have the ability to bring the changeling aloft.
