View Full Version : LA +1 Without a Charisma Penalty

2007-03-16, 12:40 PM
I'm looking for a race with a Level Adjustment of +1 that doesn't have a charisma penalty. It needs to be in one of the following books:
Core (PHB & DMG)
Heroes of Battle
Expanded Psionics Handbook
Monster Manual I,II,III
Complete (Whatever)
Libris Mortis
Unearthed Arcana

It's for an evil character, so it would be nice if it was from a predominantly evil society, but that isn't important. Thanks for your help.

Dromites! +2 Cha, -2 Str, -2 Wis. Ant people with psychic powers!

Drow are LA+2. I might go with a Drow if necessary, but I'd rather have LA+1.

@Fax: Where are they?

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the aasimar, a LA +1 race that provides a +2 bonus to both Cha and Wis, as well as some other special tidbits. I think that, provided that they're born on the Prime, as native outsiders, which protects them from banishment. Essentially, they're still outsiders, but they're on the plane to which they would be banished if affected by that spell.

[edit] Whoops! I missed the part about needing an evil character. Aasimar might still work. These sorts of things do happen, after all.

Oops. Coulda sworn it was LA+1. I must've been thinking of Tieflings. :smallconfused:

Dromites are in the Expanded Psionics Handbook, as well as in the SRD (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/psionic/psionicRaces.htm#dromites).

Dromites can be found in Expanded Psionics Handbook, page 6. From the same book, Half-Giants on page 12.

Aasimars have a Charisma bonus and an LA of +1. Page 209 of Monster Manual. From the same book, Hobgoblins, page 153.

From Monster Manual III, Goatfolk, page 63.

Play an evil Aasimar. That'd be cool.

2007-03-16, 01:03 PM
Hobgoblins are what you want. I'm surprised it took 7 replies for someone else to bring them up!

2007-03-16, 01:20 PM
Thanks for the help everyone. I think I'm going to go with a half-giant. It fits the best with my character concept.

AssassinFox was probably thinking of that Lesser Drow, think it was in some FR book somewhere, which was +1 with reduced Drow abilities.

2007-03-16, 07:21 PM
No, it was a +0 LA drow with greatly reduced abilities.

Ironicly I've seen more good tieflings then good aasimars.

Play a tiefling/aasimar crossbreed with sparkling eyes and purple hair and incredibly beauty and special magical powers.

You could name her something like Mary.

Her surname should be Sue, right?
