In the D&D (3.5 Edition) Eberron campaign setting, changelings
are shape-shifters who are descended from doppelgangers and humans.
Unlike doppelgangers, their original forms are sexed (either male
or female). Changelings, however, can mimic different kinds of
humanoids of either gender, to the point where female changelings
can father children while in a male form and male changelings can
become pregnant in female form.
Changeling characters are mentioned in the various Eberron
sourcebooks and novels. Changelings with important roles in the
Eberron novels include: Aunn (male) in James Wyatt's "Draconic
Prophecies" trilogy; Te'oma (female) in Matt Forbeck's "The Lost
Mark" trilogy; and Marth (male) in Rich Wulf's "Heirs of Ash"
Eberron's changelings are consider closed content and not available
for 3rd party publishers. So, under the Pathfinder RPG
(based on D&D 3.5's mechanics), changelings are a completely
different, non-shapeshifting race based on European folktales.
However, there is a new shapeshifting race, the skindancers, in Wayfinder #7
