I loved the artwork and amazing creatures detailed in this book. One particular thing that i think you should consider is the Cyclop’s body score. In my opinion, due its massive height and bulk physique, it should be at least 18.
Absolutely love this expansion, just have a quick query about the True Dragon lifepath. A dragon can have pick up points dependent on how old the dragon is, however, it seems hard to find skills to put these points into given that only golden dragons have the ability to transform into a human form; the skills that a dragon could use in draconic form have already been allocated bases. What skills would you suggest would be a good use of the pick up points?
Okay, so there are actually a lot of skills for a dragon to learn they just aren’t all skills you would imagine a dragon having. The important thing to keep in mind is that while their bodies are huge and they don’t have thumbs, dragons are still as sapient as humans so they can perform any of the mental skills. And even some of the physical skills can be scaled up to Dragon Scale.
Business, Deduction, Monster Lore, Social Etiquette, Streetwise, Tactics, Teaching, Sleight of Hand (Kind of a stretch but possible), Fine Arts (It doesn’t have to be human scale art), Gambling, Languages (Understanding them not speaking them), Leadership, Performance (Singing or even percussion), & Trap Crafting could all be options for a dragon.
