    Half-Fiend


    Fortunately, the half-fiend/half-celestial difference is slightly greater than the fiendish/celestial one. Slightly.

    Half-fiends obviously have other SLA's than their celestial equivalents, which are about equal in power. At worst, they're a bit weaker at higher levels.

    Half-fiends fly speeds are way worse. Maneuverability is down by one step (which removes the ability to hover, move back, or reverse), and the speed itself is halved.

    Half-fiends do get a better immunity (poison rather than disease), better resistances, and some natural weapons, but have lower ability scores overall.

    Even moreso than with half-celestials, I find myself tempted to put half-fiends at +2 and see how the community responds. Still, I'll do the safe thing and rate them as +3's for now.

    Have you had enough of unreasonably high LA's and unplayable monsters in 3.5? Then check out the LA-assignment thread! Don't hesitate to give feedback!
