Re: Satyr Feedback

I think that fey type (and its included low-light vision,) the skill reroll, and the option to trade -2 to a stat for Winged/Horned/Aquatic are collectively worth slightly more than the human's skill bonus. Maybe a point or two in the RP system. However, I don't think that's really a problem -- as m...

Re: Satyr Feedback

Edit: Oh, you updated them. That partially or completely addresses the 'pony satyrs are better humans than human' concern, but I'm still concerned that: 1. Are Satyrs that don't take Winged, Horned, or Aquatic and take a normal bonus feat instead of trading Unique Destiny away different enough from...

Re: Satyr Feedback

Half-Elves and Half-Orcs each get the Human subtype and +2 to any stat, while getting other traits of their other parent race, plus in the case of Half-Elves a unique bonus for diplomatic skills. Half-Elves also get Skill Focus, which serves as human skill bonus lite. Satyr gets +2 to two stats of c...

Re: Satyr Feedback

Perhaps. But what were you going for with the satyr, anyway?

Re: Satyr Feedback

My first thought is changing up their ability mods some (Maybe a choice of three ability mod sets, or the standard human/half-human +2 to one score and then the subtype sets the other +2 and a -2), but really, the question here is, what are satyrs supposed to /do/? What's their concept, when it come...

Re: Satyr Feedback

The -2 Str and having to give up your feat for the craziest stuff helps, but still, +2 to any two scores seems like a bit too much. It's more flexible than a human at the human's own game! This may require more analysis, but let's run with the example we have and look at the fighter who goes nuts wi...

Satyr Feedback

Hi there! When I heard Forgotten Gods had a new race in it I was curious to see it and I liked your work so far, so I bought it. I have to say, Satyr seems a little... OP. While based on Race Points, they might only be a /little/ stronger than humans, like Aasimar, I suspect that system is flawed. 1...

Re: Two-Weapon Fighting and Two-Handed Weapons Questions.

It's not 'only 15', it's 17 because you have to pay for the score before the racial penalty. That's 13 point-buy points. While that's quite possibly worth it for a good primary score, a TK unicorn has divided their primary score between dex and int. Most campaigns I've seen used 20-22 point buy. I g...

Re: Two-Weapon Fighting and Two-Handed Weapons Questions.

The first time I tried to get a Ponyfinder game going (with the original race book), the first thing one of my fellow players wanted to play was a unicorn rogue that telekinetically dual-wields daggers. The game fell apart before we had a single session, but that put the unicorn TK rules to the fore...
