Racial Templates

Post  Philadelphus on Thu Jan 23, 2014 2:23 am

With the change to the abilities system several people requested some form of racial template. It got put on my backburner because there were other things to work on, but with the abilities pretty much settled down and stable now I took another stab at it.

Each race will have two sets of abilities: core abilities, which are things that a member of that race ought to be able to do just by virtue of being a normal functioning individual of that race, and suggested abilities, which are just that: suggestions for new players unsure what to take. Core abilities are not required to be taken (you can play a Scootaloo-like pegasus without flight if you want), but they are recommended. If you want to play a character without them just make sure you have a good in-character reason why your character can't do something.  Smile 

I've kept the core abilities of each race to a minimum point cost to help emphasize that your character is a unique member of their species, and to leave as much room for creative freedom as possible.
