QuoteIt sounds like you're advocating separate little racial abilities that aren't part of Keywords, per se. Just abilities.
Quoteit seems to me that what you are suggesting is just a simple version of having unique Keywords for each possible cross, Ron. Do I have that right essentially?
Quote from: Mike HolmesHmmm. A rules question for the Cognoscenti, are the abilities included in, for example, the Troll section part of a Keyword proper? It says they are a Keyword, but the real question is whether or not I can roll against the Keyword at some level for stuff not covered by the actual abilities? Are these real Keywords, or just packages.
Quote from: Mike HolmesOn a related note, most of these packages in HQ give some substantial advantages, and the flaws that do exist seem interesting to play. IOW, when I was reading through them, the seemed very attractive to me. Basically a whole nother pile of Abilities that I get for free just for joining that Race. I assume that races also get Homelands? Or are these Species Keywords somehow a substitute for Homelands? Seems wrong to me, but either way there's a problem. Either the character gets an extra Keyword, or he's deprived of the most important one, IMO (Homeland). Have I misinterpreted something?
