Minotaurs, by this system have about 9 racial points worth.


5 (AtG) + 2 (AtD) + ? (Sat guaranteed)

I'm sure they'll get around to re-balancing the default race builds eventually. Probably shouldn't take too long once they actually sit down to do it. (I could probably do them all in a few hours all by myself afterall. Though of course they'll probably take longer as they'd actually asked each other's opinions and such.)

Just noticed, why'd you nerf Griffons too? They had All Awesome before... Where'd that disappear too?

Alter Ego (1)
Choose a Race. You may spend 5 minutes to shift between you race’s natural appearance and one of your chosen race, However, this appearance is unique to you, so you cannot impersonate another specific individual. Furthermore, you always look the same in a particular race’s form. For example, if you choose to appear as a minotaur; you will always look like the same unique minotaur. You cannot use a “different” minotaur form to escape being recognized, or take the appearance of the town mayor. However, if you want to take minotaur form to infiltrate a tribe of minotaurs - that’s totally fine.

What happens if a Pegasus turned into a Unicorn with this? It stats "appearance", so would you be able to still fly?

Magical Attunement (1)
Your race can use perception to detect magic, though this does not let them decipher exactly what the magic does - that requires arcane knowledge.

So is this a Perception check instead of an Arcana check to detect magic? Does this let you "hear" it emitting magic or "seeing" it radiate off an object? If I were playing a character with a higher Arcana than Perception, would there be a point to me taking this?

I think we discussed Magical Atunement earlier and the conclusion was, if you have high Arcana, it doesn't really do anything.

Tyger, I'm pretty sure when they update things they'll tell us. At the moment any of the default races listed in the books aren't valid and are waiting on an update.

So in the Races of Equestria expansion, the words under Changeling Quick-Shifter's "A Thousand Faces" say you may change into any "medium sized humanoid creature".

Shouldn't this be "equine creature"?

This may be rendered moot after the rebalancing and whatnot, but I probably should've asked this when I first saw the trait:
Graceful Form (2)
You take half damage from falls and gain +2 to acrobatics.
We had the argument about a 3rd trained skill being non-stackable, but isn't this what the system has been trying to avoid? Flat untyped bonuses to a basic kind of skill check?

Glad you asked! sunny

Yep. It is 100% absolutely what the system is trying to avoid. I fully expect to change or cut this later. This is my experiment to see if I'm wrong about this.

All you'd need to do is make it situational in such a way that it doesn't crop up constantly (giving you incentive to act a certain way when you can to get the bonus, but not always giving you a bonus all the time). Alternatively, the difference between a +2 and +3 are fairly minor (well, 33% boost, I suppose), so you could just make it grant free training. Since training can't be stacked, the problem is solved.

If it grants free training than it's flat out inferior to just taking Training and Feline Grace (of course the only time when it isn't is when you already have training in Acrobatics).
