New Microlite20 Races!

One of the joys of Microlite20 is how easy it is to make new races and classes. There are so few options, and it's easy to convert stuff over from 3.5, it'd be a shame to stick with what's in the PDF...

The general advice for making your own:
  • All races have a total +2 bonus to stats. This can come as a bonus or a malus - Dwarves are +2 STR, Half-Orcs are +4 STR, -2 MIND. So long as it balances out to +2, it's all good.
  • Humans are a special case - they get +1 to all skills. This means, as a rule of thumb, those four points are roughly equivalent to the two points of stat bonuses. Thus, a +1 to two skills (or +2 to one skill) is worth +1 to a stat.
  • Certain abilities can be substituted for +1 point, and stronger ones would cost you the +2 - add some negatives to balance out more powerful options!
So, without further ado...

+3 DEX, -2 STR, +2 Subterfuge

+1 DEX, +2 Physical

+1 DEX, roll on the Tiefling Abilities Table twice, and the Appearance table three times.

+1 MIND (or CHA, if you're using it), roll on the Aasimar Abilities Table twice and the Appearance table three times.

+1 MIND, +1 DEX

+1 MIND (or CHA, if you're using it), Minor Shapechange (change appearance at-will, unable to copy a specific person grants +5 to SUBT for the purposes of Disguise)

+2 STR, +2 DEX, -2 MIND
 +3 STR, -2MIND, +2 Subt

+1 STR, +1 MIND

+2 Str, -1 MIND, +2 Survival (even non-Rangers and Druids)
