Githzerai stats


First Post
How are you supposed to figure out a PC githzerai's stats? There are no stat adjustments in Manual of the Planes, and there's no mention of them in Savage Species. And yet, they're ECL+2.

It's in the DMG, in the section about monster races.
A Githzerai has +6 dex, -2 int and +2 wis.

The stats are not in the DMG, how you calculate them is.

... and spell resistance and spell-like abilities. They're worth their +2 ECL which I have confirmed by playtesting

As for figuring out stat adjustments, if the normal score is an odd number subtract 11 from it to discover the stat adjustment; even scores require that you subtract 10.


With the exception of stats with a larger penalty than 2, and strictly speaking intelligence with a -2 penalty as well.
