    Definitely needs a LA of at least +1. Every Small player race has a speed of 20ft. Medium creatures usually have a speed of 30ft. You've given these Small Creatures a base speed of 40ft, equal to most Large creatures. That, along with the +2 Cha, the +2 Dex, and the stat bonuses, is rather powerful. Would make an excellent sorcerer, who'd be very hard to catch.

    It still seems slightlu superior to PC races, with a +4 for -2.. perhaps a con penalty or skill penalty could even it out for a LA of +0.

    I saw something like this on Wizards.com once. The moogles got a -2 penalty to wisdom, because they're silly little things, and +2 to Int, because despite their ditziness, they are possessed of useful knowledge.

    They also had 0 natural reach, due to their stubby arms, 20ft spped and clumsy flight manueverability.

    Is there a difference between Favored and Preferred classes?

    Take a look at Whisper Gnomes and Dwarfs. Whisper Gnomes are small and have 30ft, dwarfs are medium and have 20ft. There's no rule about player races, size, and land speed.

    Kobolds also have a 30 speed and are small. And since the -2 is to str I think it is ok to give them +4 since half-orcs get -4 for a +2.

    Goblins are also at 30. Personally, I think it's good as it stands.

    Didn't say there was - I was referring to Small player races out of the PHB.

    Kobolds and Goblins both move 30ft., so that's balanced. It was originally 40ft., which was too much - hence my post.

    The DEX bonus I can understand, but why do they get a +2 CHA? Wouldn't it make more sense for moogles (who are builders and knowledgeable) to have a +2 INT instead? Afterall, Craft and Knowledge skills are all INT based.

    Otherwise, nothing there seems too powerful.

    Got to say they seem overpowered to me. +4 to -2 ability adjustments? small size (which is a net positive)? combined with no speed penalty, low light vision, and decent skill modifiers. Significantly more powerful than a PC race.

    I'd recomend at least dropping that strength penalty to -4, if you can't find some other score to take a hit.

    From what I've read, smaller size is actually bad because you have less damage on your weapon.

    Of course that doesn't apply to those glass cannons we all know and love ;)

    I say stick em with a -2 to wisdom. Just to balance out the +4 with a -4.

    Why the +4 to listen? They're cute silly little monster-beasts. Even wolves, who are like, super ultra hearing sorta things, only get +3 to listen naturally.

    So, in my lousy opinion, drop the listen bonus entirely, and give +4 to jump, +2 balance. Cause hey, they've got wings. They should be able to jump rather decently.

    I'd say Fly speed of 20, Perfect. They can Hover, fly straight up, fly backwards, that's a perfect.
    They will most certianly need a LA

    Nah, the damage drop is more than paid off for by the benefits of being small (+1 AC, +1 attack, +4 to hide). It definitely has it's disadvantages but small size overall is still a positive benefit. Especially when you consider that both rogue and sorcerer (and wizard for that matter) don't give a damn whether or not the dagger they're weilding does 1d4 or 1d3 damage.

    Heck, even weapon-heavy classes can work fine at higher levels. By the time you're a 15-20th level barbarian who cares if you roll 1d10 or 1d12 damage with that greataxe? you've got + bajillion to the damage roll anyway.

    Goblins move at 30'. Granted, goblins get shafted on stat mods, but they also have some nice racial skill bonuses that make up for it.

    They dont get a fly speed because their wings dont move. also the +4 listen is because they have rabbit ears.

    No, they do not fly in Tactics Advance.
    In the other games, however, (a great example being Final Fantasy IX) they can hover, backflip, fly up, down, back, forwards, etc. They do not do this often, because their walk speed is faster.

    Thus a 30 ft walk speed and 20 ft fly speed seems perfect.

    They do not fly in Tactics Advance for a reason. Mainly, because it is a tactics game and none of the other races fly. Also, because walking is easier to animate, and this left more room for story.

    Crystal Chronicles is another good example of Moogle flight. They don't seem to be very manuverable, though.

    It's actually pretty interesting when you look at the evolution of the moogle throughout the Final Fantasy games.

    FFV: Pretty sure this is where they started, they had a language that only one human could understand, they were afraid of everything, and were painfully weak in just about every way.

    FFVI: Moogles get a MAJOR face lift.While they still look the same, they are NOT shy, and they were far from weak, one of my favorite parts was when you got three parties of almost all moogles. That was awesome. Main moogle character also favored polearms, which is just plain awesome.

    FFVII: They get mention, but are completely ficticious beings in a ficticious world, FFVII moogles suck.

    FFVIII: Pretty sure they were even less of a presence than in VII.

    FFIX: Moogles come in a variety of personalities and even one that was an eidolon (summons) in disguise, they run a mailing service, save your game for you, and allow you use tents. By far the largest role they had played yet.

    FFX: If moogles were in this one, it would have been SO much cooler.

    FFXI: Don't know, and don't care to find out.

    FFT: N/A

    FFTA: Played the game for few hours and shut it off, glad I didn't buy it. The moogle kinda kicked ass, but not as much as they did in FFVI. I thought the rabbit-ears thing was stupid, and they should've stay the way they looked before.

    As for alignment, why did you have them as chaotic and neutral, when their goddess has good as one of her domains? I always saw them more as neutral good than anything else. But then, I didn't play FFTA (which is, apparently, what you used to make this) very much, and I'm drawing all my analysis from V, VI, and IX.

    You're right there is no hard and fast rule, although most small creatures move 20ft, medium 30ft, and large at 40ft.
