Drop Racial Bonuses in favor of Character History.

Post by SpyderX » Thu May 11, 2017 2:18 am

Lose most of the Racial bonuses that add to skills and move them over to a new category called Background (or somesuch). At least for the ones that are primarily culturally based.

Originally Ivory's idea but I think it is a great one. Could be hard to implement though, I don't know.

I support this idea, already have friends picking species purely for the stats and later regretting their choices.

Yeah, that'd actually be pretty nice.

I don't get it. What exactly would characters end up with this way?

Similar stat bonuses but "pickable" regardless of your race choice.

The real solution is to stop thinking min-max and just have fun. +10 Defense vs Stun or +4 Max Pet Level isn't going to make or break your gameplay and should be seen as a freebie rather than a mandatory thing that you need to consider.

Actually +4Max Pet level is a huge deal.

Being able to pick those bonuses rather than being sadled with a often useless racial trait is something I can get absolutely behind.
