View Full Version : D&D 3.x Other Template for size increase

Would a template that basically permanently gave the effects of Enlarge Person (+1 size increase, +2STR -2DEX) be worth +1 LA, if the Half-Minotaur and Half-Ogre templates from Dragon Magazine were unavailable?

The SRD Half-giant is LA+1, giving what you have there except the reach, and probably an iffy one at that. I feel like you'd be overvaluing reach some to also have your template be LA +1.

I think it might be okay. Reach is definitely an important factor to consider, but its effect can be mitigated by medium-sized architecture due to squeezing (or hunching) penalties and cover opportunities.

Also, equipment will generally cost somewhat more I suppose.
