Quick Question:

If I wanted to write a new race and start it from Pre-8th as a Fresh character, without having to Multi-Race it to become what I wanted,
how would I go about doing that?

Example: (Bear in mind this is not the race idea I have) I write up a race Idea for a Dragon Born, it gets accepted. Would I have to start him as a Human (or whatever race) and Multi Race Dragon born, or could I start his first adventure off as a Dragon Born?
If so, how?


Thanks
Mojo
You can submit s base class change (note it should be no more powerful than a standard race). You will get it back with a cost in monster points. It will say that it must be the first thing bought post 8th and that it is playable from 4th level.

Note there is a dragon kin race already available. Details of it can be found in one of the old companions in the downloads section.

The simplest version would be to take something that exists and reskin it, then use the rest of the points app to add flavor abilities
For example (and completely off the top of my head):

Drake-kin:
I am a big lizard that eat people.

As per ogre.
I must appear scaly and draconic rather than big and burly.
I keep all ogre intelligence restrictions due to animalistic intelligence.
I may not join a tribe, but I am still tribal for determining which abilities I can't buy.
May be played from 1st level.

Cost:


Thick scales:
If my scaled makeup is of very high quality (ref's discretion) then it counts as master-crafted and grants +2 innate PAC.

Cost: Table:


Fiery Breath
I can breathe fire. I can cause a physical ignite at will with a 2 foot range for 3 tblp, and once per day per purchace for 24 TBLP I can breathe a mass physical firebolt (MAC still applies) that affects a cone 20' in front of me.
Cost: Table: Max:

Fleck's points app looks like this:

Non-Standard: Base Race/Class Change
Base Race: River Otter.
Class: Wizard.
Description: Advances as per Human Wizard but discerns as River Otter. Gains Large Lung Capacity. Can speak Otter. Has make-up restrictions in a similar manner to Ratfolk, but must look like an Otter (IE Half Brown & Half White fur, whiskers ect).

Cost: Table: 1 Auth: (1st thing bought table 1)
Cost: Auth: (Monster Points)

Hope that helps,

Flo

So, what Points App File do I use for this?
Multi Race or Ability or something else entirely?

Ability.

Its an ability sheet that you put the race change on

Keep it as simple as possible then put some small addons for the race on the same sheet.

Have a look through the old Yellow Paper posts, I'm reasonably sure that there are examples of race and class changes there.
