Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: Incomplete. This really needs to be fleshed out because as of right now it lacks any substantial Fluff. While it can be regarded by some as useless information it has a significant impact on how your content is used by players. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help.

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Uses incomplete and incorrect wording throughout. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague. You should avoid granting flat increases to AC as well as increasing the base AC of a race over 13. Random Weight and Height Table is wrong for a Medium Sized creature. Overall poorly executed and needs a rework both from a mechanic and lore perspective to better integrate with the first party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and see the Featured Articles pages for some exemplary content.
