Talk:Sorath (5e Race)

The physical description is, frankly, awful. It's just another "pretty human" race. Also, it contradicts itself. By giving them a very consistent, distinct, and unusual physical appearance, despite being similar to humans, makes them highly conspicuous, and therefore terribly ineffective spies! Did a quick check for this race in other media, and I can't fine an example of this, so it's OC, meaning the appearance is not fixed and can be improved. The history section actually gives more details about the race, and then gives some society details, so I weeded those into their appropriate sections. I made them light weight, despite their height, to make their unearthly origins more apparent in a way taht is actually subtle. I gave sacred flame a rest resource demand, so that it is more similar to dragonborn firebreath, as a reference for balance. (Though this only targets one creature, so I can understand removing the restriction, but with all the other really good racial traits, something needs to tie these guys down and complicate them a bit) I dropped the radiant dam resistance, because more than one resistance on a race just seems like too much to me. Also: A smart being never creates a tool that can be used against itself. I doubt a god would give its creations resistance to the damage that god's agents would deal. I flat-out removed the angel monster's celestial weapons thing. Alongside the rest of this, that was too much. --Kydo (talk) 23:04, 13 September 2016 (MDT)

A cantrip having a rest limit is kind of odd to me. I honestly think it would be okay to just give it to them. Maybe one of the two condition immunities can be taken away in exchange? --OwenLeaf (talk) 12:58, 23 October 2016 (MDT)

Good compromise to me. --Kydo (talk) 13:52, 23 October 2016 (MDT)

What makes this race any different or more interesting compared to the first parties aasimar or even the Angel (5e Race) or Angel, Variant (5e Race) or Half-Solar (5e Race)? Just seems like another pompous celestial race of basically humans. --ConcealedLightThis user is an administrator (talk) 07:53, 12 May 2018 (MDT)
