    Default Half-Elf Half Breeds (PEACH)

    So I recently read a 3e 3rd party book on half breeds made using the 3e PHB races called Races of Consequence, and I was intrigued by the races born through half elves. I have no idea if many know about this book, but wish to share my 5e versions of the races. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the races of consequence.

    Earth Touched (Half Dwarf/Half Half-Elf)

    +2 Constitution = 2.0
    +1 to 1 Ability score = 1.0
    2 Skill Proficiencies = 1.0
    Fey Ancestry = .5
    Darkvision = .5
    Stonecunning = .5
    Dwarf Weapon Training = .5

    Gnomesti (Half Gnome/Half Half-Elf) = 6.5

    +2 Intelligence = 2.0
    +1 to 1 Ability score = 1.0
    2 Skill Proficiencies = 1.0
    Darkvision = .5
    Fey Ancestry = .5
    Minor Illusion = .5
    Tinker = .5
    Artificerís Lore = .5

    Lillalee (Half Halfling/Half Half-Elf) = 6.5

    +2 Dexterity = 2.0
    +1 to 1 Ability score = 1.0
    2 Skill Proficiencies = 1.0
    Fey Ancestry = .5
    Lucky = .5
    Adv. v. Frighten = .5
    Naturally Stealthy = 1.0

    Thank you for your insight, I know these races are either imbalanced, lacking flavor, or both.
    I hope you live a long life, so that you may suffer through every mortal tragedy and disaster conceivable.

    Your valuation is way off. Lucky is one of the best racial features that exists. Tinker and stone cunning are ribbons. There's no way they should be weighted close to the same

    Also, in general this seems boring. It's just a mashup of features from two races with nothing unique.

    Finally halfling is super OP because it gets all the good features of two good races

    Echoing Potato Golem here. These races, while they might not break the game, are definitely significantly better than other races.
