Talk:Higardi (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
+8 stat mods for meant calls for at least a +2 level adjustment. The +4 for the women is at least a +1. If the women are descended from nymphs, wouldn't it make more sense for them to to speak Fae than Abyssal? --Ganre 15:08, 27 May 2008 (MDT)
- Good point. I'll add fey as an extra language. And technically, it is called Sylvan. Noname 12:45, 28 May 2008 (MDT)
I do not see how the male and female version of this race are balanced compared to one another. Also, this race gives +6 to one's ability scores at LA 0. That is not balanced. --Green Dragon 02:57, 28 March 2009 (MDT)
- It was a bad idea on my part. I think that this might be one of those ideas of mine which is destined for the trash heap. --Noname 10:35, 28 March 2009 (MDT)
-Actually, if I may be so bold, the idea is very good, as per the entire gender line. The only points I saw, (besides the lack of ability score balance(Perhaps a +2 Cha/Dex to both genders, and while the females take a -2 to Con, men would be more likely to take a penalty to Int/Wis...? (I do see the balancing problem there, via the divine source...)) is the lack of societal cohesiveness.
A race of male dwarves and female elves (To simplify the base attitude difference) is rife with interesting adventure ideas. (Civil war, etc.) However, the rift is perhaps, over-exaggerated, as the females, if they really were as anti-societal as they are displayed, would rebel long ago, and turn into Amazons, and died off long before any PCs found them. Perhaps the males are arrogant jerks, who dominate the women to the point of slavery. (This would make the men more lawful neutral/evil, while the women would definately shift toward true-neutral(uncaring)/chaotic-neutral/good(rebellious).
Again, these is all pure speculation, I just thought perhaps you could use some encouragement, and I felt my two cents might be helpful. Your setting is, through and through, very well thought out, and I hope to see more of it.--Bard Jon 9:48, 01 June 2009 (MDT)
