Talk:Yautja, Variant (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

I wanted to design a Yautja race for my own use, but I also wanted to have some sense of scale. To that end, I decided to use the Marasmusine Meter (5e Guideline) as a guide. This is simply so that I have some sense of scale and nothing more. If I understood the meter correctly, this race should have a score of 4.49, as shown below. This is in line with what I was aiming for, since I wanted a more powerful race than normal.

  • Speed (1)
  • Darkvision (0.5)
  • Savage Attacks (0.5)
  • Stealthy Hunter (0.33 + 0.33)
  • Toughness (1)
  • Yautja Weapon Training (0.5)
  • Relentless Endurance (0.33)

Some features such as movement speed and toughness were not listed on the meter, so I had to make guesses on what seemed like a reasonable point cost. 40 ft. of movement struck me as a strong feature that is always on, as did the +1 to HP, so I priced those at 1 each. I'll likely return to make some adjustments to the race in terms of features and possible subraces, but for now I'm happy with it. Vobria (talk) 08:19, 11 June 2020 (MDT)

Made the big update that introduced subraces. I'm more satisfied with it now that it showcases two distinct types of predators, though I didn't take the time to calculate what its score would be this time. I'm not concerned with it anyway, since it looks good to me and strong is what I wanted it to be. I'm not 100% satisfied with the Hunter subrace, but I'll let it stand as is for the time being.

Another big update where I added an additional subrace. I wanted this one to represent a more balanced martial approach between Str and Dex, and I also decided to change the additional skill proficiencies to a race wide feature. I feel this allows for better customization, and it allowed me to further develop the other subraces as well. I'm going to look more at the Hunter in the future, but I'm more or less satisfied with it for now. Vobria (talk) 01:18, 13 November 2020 (MST)
