    Default Avia Races (4e homebrew)

    Hello all! This is my first attempt at homebrewing for a new game I'm running. I've been working on a few attempts at giving the bird races good stats and such based on their folklore and biology, and so far I have three, (am considering more, but for now, three is enough for me.) Ravens, Robins, and Bluejays.
    Ravens:

    Size: Tiny
    Speed: Six squares
    Vision: Low Light
    Languages: Avian, Raven (Really more setting fluff)
    Skill bonuses: +2 Stealth, +2 Streetwise.

    Racial Power:
    Blending the Background:
    Encounter, Free Action, Personal
    Effect: Effectively disappear for one turn.
    (Yes, this is the rogue race, why do you ask? )


    Robins

    Quick strike ignoring AC, for 1D6 dmg.
    (And for those of you who know the scientific name, no turd jokes.)

    Racial Traits
    Ability Scores: +2 Wis, +2 Con
    Size: Tiny
    Vision: Normal
    Languages: Avian, Mannish (English, basically.)
    Skill Bonuses: Arcana +2, Religion +2

    Racial Power:
    Blue Bolt:

    Do 1D4 Arcane dmg to target.


    Obviously, they still need some work done on them, which is why I'm posting them here for others to look at and (hopefully!) add on to.
    Feel free to critique and look through.

    Default Re: Avia Races (4e homebrew)

    This reminds me of a short game I played in highschool. Completely homebrewed the rule system. The party consisted of a brown rat (tough and strong, good at swiming), as black rat (nimble and excellent jumper/climber) and a flying squirrel (good climber that can glide down from high places)

    As for your birds I would think the raven would be + int + cha, they are clever birds, smart and good at mimicing sounds, a mongrelfolk like ability to mimic sounds would be good. They would be skillful and make great conmen. And if they can get a feat to throw their voice it would pair greatly with a mimic ability. Imagine the fun that could be had when the villian is about to strike the killing blow when he suddenly hears a red tailed hawk scream from behind, turns quickly to face this greater threat, nothing there, turns back to the raven, nothing there either.

    I could see that working. A basic mimic power, possibly to replace the current racial power?
    A cool idea
