Anyone care to vote on what the ability score modifiers for the Hutakaan should be. There's a poll here , and there's a link to the main thread there as well.

I periodiclly check on the conversion at Enworld to see what you guys are up to. I look forward to seeing the final hutakaan.

BTW, I voted A. It is what is spec'd by the HW material, and sometimes people (me included) tend to overthink ability modifiers for races. Many times being good or bad in something is really a function of a skill, rather than being a function of a much broader ability score modifier. Hutakaans are certainly haughty and arrogant, and deserving of a penalty to Diplomacy checks. However, clipping Charisma also hurts their turning ability if a cleric (their favored class), and would significantly reduce the chance that anyone would play them as a sorceror (which there is no reason to believe Hutakaans couldn't be one). In short, ability modifiers paint with a very broad stroke and sometimes more fine brush works better.

Just mt 2 cents.

I agree with the last post. -2str and +2 wis from the HW sounds about right. I think a penelty to diplomacy when dealing with races other than their own would be more accurate. Maybe even a penalty of sense motive or bluff. I could see a bonus to knowledge religion as well tho.
