Talk:Imp (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
As pointed out, this race was overpowered. To balance it while still preserving the Monster Manual version, stats were changed to DEX+2, STR-2, and INT-1. Additional changes included reverting some previous changes to match with the MM, changing the size to tiny, and reconfiguring the racial traits. --Gazimon (talk) 14:35, 19 July 2018 (MDT)
- Additional issues:
- - May have too many racial traits.
- - Uncertain on height and weight, though forgotten realms wiki says they average 2ft and 8lbs.

I’m not sure that the monster manual version is workable as a low level player character. But there isn’t really precedent for low level player equivalent demon in fiction to work with either. Characters like Hellboy, Etrigan, the Balrog and basically any other fictional demon you can name are all near unkillable and have power comparable to a level 15 player easily. I’d say if someone wants to play a first level imp just downsize a tiefling. Wendigo (talk) 18:21, 28 May 2019 (MDT)
