Centaurs and other 'Tauric Races Supplement

(this feels weird posting here rather than in the/a dedicated 'merchant' forum :p )

I have always loved the ‘tauric form. Don’t know exactly why, but they capture my imagination. Over the years I’ve played a number of Centaur characters in various campaigns and in various editions of the game, and always had a blast doing so, with interesting moments, unusual occurrences and RP galore. (In one of the first campaigns I was taking over another player’s character in a two-centaur party who (the characters, that is) had started a bet(loser buys drinks) with each other for who could kill the most “orc-equivalent” worth of monsters during the adventure – at the end of the first adventure they tied. The rest of the party bought them both drinks...)

Fast forward to 4th edition and I got the designer itch to bring Centaurs, and all the other possible ‘taurs, into the PC fold for 4e campaigns. The result is a new supplement I just put up on RPGnow, which allows for a whole host of ‘taur race types, using just about any animal base type as the foundation (Centaurs, liontaurs, foxtaurs, anttaurs, yuan-ti, zebrataurs, dracotaurs...), to be added to a campaign without straying far from the established player race norms and without the need for serious party or game re-balancing.

Free preview below, please check it out if you, like me, want to play some ‘tauric races, or if you want to include ‘tauric races in your upcoming campaign!

Peace,

(and mods, if this is not the right place, please move! :) )

I did not look to closely at this preview, but what I really need to see is the crunch. Balance is really important to me and I need to see the sort of mechanics that you have put together in order to judge whether your product balanced enough for me to consider for my games.

I am not considering purchasing this product, but I really like the idea, and would like to see how you try to handle things.

Good luck with you work!

Definitively understandable -- balance was a prime intent of mine in writing this as well (especially to allow 'taur characters to play nicely with other races right from 1st level with no need for adjustments). Hmmm.... I can go back and unlock more bits of the crunch in the preview to allow for a better evaluation. Thank you for the feedback, I'll try to get that up over the next week.

And thanks for the luck!

peace,

Thanks for that. This gives me (and others) a better feel for what you have created. It looks quite interesting.
