Demihuman Ability Adjustments

Inspired by my Alfar rules, here's a different way to handle demihuman ability score adjustments in "roll in order" rulesets:

  • Dwarfs:  can swap any score with Constitution.
  • Elves:  can swap any score with Dexterity.
  • Gnomes:  have big noses.
  • Hobbits, etc: can swap any score with Charisma.
  • Half-orcs:  can swap any score with Strength.
  • Humans: can swap any two scores.
Any swapping of scores must result in the ability listed become higher than initially (i.e, a Dwarf could not swap an Intelligence of 10 with a Constitution of 12).

  1. This is a great idea. I love how it doesn't modify the upper and lower bounds of ability scores.
