Talk:Feline (3.5e Template)
From D&D Wiki
You DO know that there's an easier way to make a humanoid into a cat-person. Catfolk, a WOTC race, are detailed in the books Races of the Wild and Miniatures Handbook. They are LA +1, give +1 AC, +4 Dex and +2 Cha, among other things. It's pretty neat; check it out. --Gedren56 13:10, 30 December 2008 (MST)
- Evidently, this is more for the person who wants to be something like a Feline Orc. While the Catfolk class is good, this template is a different way of getting cat(gender) features. --TK-Squared 10:20, 12 January 2009 (MST)
Change it to;
Slight Build (Ex): The cat-like body of a feline creature lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category smaller. Whenever a feline creature is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as Hide), the feline creature is treated as one size smaller if doing so is advantageous to the character. A feline creature is also considered to be one size smaller when "squeezing" through a restrictive space. A feline creature can use weapons designed for a creature one size smaller without penalty. However, the space and reach of a feline creature remain those of a creature of their actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject's size category.
In doing so, it's much better and an already recognized ability by rules as written. --TK-Squared 10:20, 12 January 2009 (MST)
- Nevermind, I just noticed you change size to small instead of staying medium.
- Also, further points; does the template actually change your type? It changes your racial HD and states you do not recalculate, but it doesn't say you change type. Possibly it should change your type to something like Monstrous Humanoid or Magic Animal? Does the speed increase all forms of speed? Answer the questions, go! --TK-Squared 10:23, 12 January 2009 (MST)
