but the classic race have two classes whilst most psionic races have only one or only other psionic classes I think that is the error.Most people do. Or an Elf. Or a Dwarf. Or whatever.
But mechanically speaking D&D races are designed to be "Good" at specific classes. Dwarves as fighters and clerics, Half-Orcs as Barbarians and Fighters. Elves as Rogues and Wizards.
So they try and make a "Near Human" that is explicitly, specifically, good at being a Psionic character.
Problem with the core system design itself.
I have never gotten animals nor people who like to play anthropomorphic versions but that is just likely me.I mean, if you think cat people is just one thing, you don’t know enough about cats. There’s a lot more to them than fur, pointy ears and tails. I also strongly disagree that elves have longer lasting appeal than anthropomorphic animals.
what is the lasting appeal of the cat people for example?
