Demihuman feats

by argentmantle

The most basic conversion to the ‘Mystaran’ races is the simple addition of some feats that basically add in some of the ‘feel’ of the BECMI races. When combined with the Regional Benefits looks to add a healthy splash of Mystaran flavour while still preserving the 4E meta-mechanics.

The idea with these conversions is that a player new to Mystara can walk up to the game table and not have to worry about a host of ‘house rules’ on ‘core’ races. It also keeps GMs new to Mystara from having an aneurism when they start looking at my personal conversions. (I'll reserve any brain haemorrhages to myself!)

And a special thanks to Agathokles for suggesting using paragon tier feats for the BECMI abilities.
