Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Compare this to the first party aarakocra. Aarakocra: 50ft of flying and a +3 ASI; This Race: 50ft. of flying, two conditional advantages, darkvision, additional language, +3 ASI. This race is blatantly more powerful and requires a nerf to bring it in line.
