Musicus Meter
Score: 7
This race scored 7 with the Musicus Meter race guidelines (score between 4 and 6 to an absolute maximum of 8). This metric may represent this page, or not. This is a guideline, not a rule, and it's important to use your own judgment alongside this scoring.
This scoring may be the groundwork for a focused {{needsbalance}} usage. A contributor to this page may request a detailed breakdown of this page's balance. Without this information, {{needsbalance}} may then be removed. This meter cannot be used to enforce needsbalance templates.

Musicus is still being used!? Let me see what this scores on the revised Marasmusine meter.

  • Ability Scores (0)
  • Darkvision (0.5)
  • Leaf Blade (0.33) - As this is specifically an unarmed strike, it is useful for a low-level monk. For other classes, it is not particularly useful (the equivalent of a scimitar you can't two-weapon with)
  • Gecko Pads (0.33)
  • Aloof Glare (0.33) - skill proficiency
  • Leafy Cover (0.5) - skill advantage, the usefulness of which is highly campaign-dependent (you might never be in a forest, or in the forest all the time)
  • Language (0.25)

Total = 2.25

This is within the target range of 2 to 3. Marasmusine (talk) 06:51, 18 July 2019 (MDT)
