Marasmusine Scale Rating
- Well, here it is on the Marasmusine scale. The target is 4.5
- Abilitiy scores (-0.5)
- Flight (3). The weapon limitation is not a mitigating factor, as it still allows you to at-will stay in the air and make ranged attacks; and it's still fast.
- Speed (0). As in most cases you can fly instead of walk, this does not adjust the score.
- Two skill proficiencies (2)
- Cold resistance (1)
- Shortbow expertise (0). This is an edge-case benefit.
- Feathered Edge (5e Equipment) (0.5). This benefit is hidden away on another page, but essentially they gain a +1 to attack rolls with scimitars. This is a big deal for two-weapon fighting ritos.
- Total = 6
- This race is 1.5 points overbudget. I recommend dropping two of the proficiencies/resistance, making "feathered edge" a racial trait instead of equipment, and perhaps a 0.5-value benefit that would help any class (not just fighting classes). Marasmusine (talk) 13:52, 6 June 2018 (MDT)
Thank you for your feedback! I also appreciate the detailed breakdown of the Rito through a scale of your own, but I'm going to have to disagree and stick to the Musicus Meter. I don't really think outside pages should affect a race, and the Rito don't start out with that weapon, so it doesn't really make sense to include it in the rating of the overall race. Also, it's more expensive than a standard scimitar and the Feathered Edge isn't a weapon with the Light property either. It just says that it's light in the flavor text. I did however remove the Acrobatics proficiency and made an additional nerf to flight to balance out any possibility of a two-weapon flying rito. Thanks again for your response! :)
