Talk:Slowking (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|3||Constitution, Intelligence, Wisdom scores all increases by 1.|
|-1||-10 ft Movement Speed|
|1-1.5||30 ft Swim Speed|
Another fun race to make, though one of minimal races in terms of traits. The reduced movement speed is based on this derpy genius's very poor speed stat (They may have evolved from Slowpokes but they didn't get much faster).
I was unsure how to handle Natural Helm since having something that big latched onto your head would naturally prevent you from wearing any headgear (let alone helms), but I felt it granting you at least some AC was fitting since technically Slowking is wearing something large and hard, acting like a natural helm. Simply making it a clone of Natural Armor might have been better, but I didn't feel having a natural helm was the same as having natural body armor (well, armor all over the body, that is, and not just the head).
Edit: Looks like Natural Armor was the better way to go. also I'm surprised I didn't think to make Constitution one of the ability scores instead of 2 to Intelligence, especially with how big a role the Shellder helm plays in Slowking's biology. Thanks to ConcealedLight for the help.
