Zebras' racial ability score penalty?

Postby Alzrius » Fri Apr 18, 2014 12:44 pm

So in the Ponyfinder Campaign Setting book, the alternate racial abilities for zebras don't seem to list a -2 penalty to an ability score for them; there are only two +2 modifiers listed.

Given that every other race in the game has a -2 ability score modifier, and that this is pretty integral to keeping races balanced (a stated goal for the pony races), which ability score should zebras have to apply a -2 penalty to?

I wonder if it's meant to be the same as Earthbound. (-2 Dex)

I don't think that we're supposed to assume that from the modifier not being there - unicorns have a -2 to Dexterity, and it's explicitly spelled out in their entry.

Zebras have no negative. However, they also have the least tribal Feats. 0. If you are OK with that they are pretty nice, just not strongly flavored.
