When I tell my 6 and 3 year old I'm playing a game with Caillou THEY WILL BE SO JEALOUS.
I like how you and fireinthedust have gone for outside the box races that still feel *right* for a pirate game.[MENTION=20323]Quickleaf[/MENTION]- I was thinking I'd just start with the half-elf and swap out Fey Ancestry for Mimicry. Quick hack, feels about right. Does that look alright to you?
Oh yes, absolutely. Nice touch on the (undead) animal messenger.Could I also adjust my domain spells a little? I'd want:
1st level: disguise self, animal messenger (requires the animal to be dead, animates it temporarily for the duration of the spell) (replaces false life, inflict wounds)
2nd level: hex (replaces ray of enfeeblement)
A mix of the Trickery and Death domains, with a little bit of Nature, but still on track for attaining animate dead at level 5. A stopgap Voodoo domain, if you will.
