Pathfinder Alternate Race Build: Grippli

Grippli

I love the Advanced Race Guide and all the interesting race options, but the race builder in the last chapter shows that not all races are created equal (that, or the race builder is a bit unbalanced, as seems to come up in many forum discussions). In any case, I thought I’d try my hand at an alternative version of some existing races.

Gripplis are frog people, who, as built in the ARG, only use 6 RP. Most ‘normal’ races use around 10 RP, leaving the gripplis feeling a little, well, short. So I played around a bit and gave them some extra frog-related traits. I ended up using 12 RP instead of 10, so I would possibly reconsider the toxic or terrifying croak traits if the race ended up too powerful at 12.

    Personally I think there is little need for the “Climb 2 RP” trait – without it you end up with a clean 10 RP and have a very frog-like end result.

      The Climb trait is from the Paizo version, but I agree it’s not really necessary and it does round the build off nicely to 10 RP.
