    Gothic Lineages Unearthed Arcana

    These are an interesting addition for the game.
    But, again - placing the ASI (+2 to one and +1 to another) anywhere still doesn't sit well with me. IDK, maybe I'm just too used to the Old Ways?

    For Dhampir: I'd prefer a pre-set +2 Con and then allow the +1 to one other. Change the Hungers to a d10 where Blood has 3 points. (1,2,3 or 1,3,7, etc)
    Everything else is actually ok. 1d4 damage and get either HP or a Bonus to an Ability/Skill Check or an Attack Roll is pretty good.

    Hexblood: This is intesting. The Token is especially intriguing, and the once a day limit seems balanced.

    Reborn: Kinda? This is better than the Revenant "Race" but the +1d6 to any skill seems too easy to abuse - I'm picturing a Reborn Phantom Rogue.....

    UA: Feyfolk.

    Fairy Not too bad, but giving a 2nd level spell (even once a day) is more then most other races, without a feat.

    Hobgoblin of the Feywild. Sigh. Not as bad at I expected. But, honestly a new Race with these features would have been preferred.

    Owlfolk is interesting. Not too potent for their Racial Features.

    Rabbitfolk: Actually rather nice.

    My review of Worldbuilding Map Sites.

    Worldspinner - I was very unhappy with this 'free' site. It requires an account to access, and the most impressive things requires a paid membership.
    The map displayed on the free account is very unimpressive.

    Donjon Fantasy This has a decent map display with text information below, and the map is downloadable.

    Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator: the details of the map aren't super, but detailed enough for general details.
    This is a great resource for a lot of other things: From States and Provinces to Cultures and Diplomacy between States.

    Gothic UA
    Dhampir: Darkvision = np. Spider Climb = interesting.
    Vampiric Bite: I can deal with on a mechanical level, but this needs to be something that the PC needs to keep hidden and not publicly known, lest they be treated no better than an actual Vampire.

    Hexblood: Fey Resistance = np. Hex Magic = np.
    Magic Token = interesting.

    Reborn: a much better option than Revenant, IMO.
    Deathless Nature: A little much for a Race, but not super terrible.
    Past Life: This seems a little to easy to abuse, especially when combined with the Phantom Rogue.

    Fey Options UA

    Fairy:
    I'll be honest, in that I'd rather have a Fey-descended PC and not a Full Fey PC.
    But, Flight is ok. Fey Magic: interesting.
    Fey Passage: This is a bit much.... maybe usable a number of times equal to Proficiency Bonus per Long Rest.

    Fey Hobgoblin = nope.
    I'm straight up changing these features to Squirrelfolk. Squorals.
    Fey Ancestry gets transfered.
    Fey Gift gets transfered.
    Hospitality gets transfered.
    Passage gets transfered.
    Spite gets transfered.
    Fortune of the Many get dropped.

    Owlfolk No real problems here, but different names for different types/sizes of Owls would be nice.

    Rabbitfolk No real problems here.

    Draconic Options UA.

    Dragonborn. Not a fan of the Duplication of Breath and Resistances.
    Chromatic Warding: I'm liking this option, but am thinking that it should be a Racial Feat. Mostly to be something that can be added to the PC instead of replacing anything.
    Metallic Breath Weapon: Also thinking that it should be a Racial Feat.

    Gem Dragonborn: I'm going to stick with my changes to the damage types for the Gem Dragons.
    Amythest: Blunt; Crystal: Fire/blinding; Emerald: Thunder; Sapphire (currently Psychic); Topaz: Acid.
    Psychic Mind is ok by me.

    Gem Flight? Well, tbh, I've been thinking of allowing a Winged Feat that can be flavored as the Player wishes, and grants a flight speed of 50'

    UA Kobold
    I'm thinking that I agree with Matt Colville, in that these features should be gained as the PC levels up.
    1st grants a Cantraip. 3rd grants the Advantage to Frightening effects. 5th grants Roar.

    The Tail Strike? IDK. Even though the 1d6+str mod blunt damage doesn't seem enough to warrant a feat. I don't think that it's bad enough an idea to deny, but would most likely reduce the damage to 1d4 like most other Racial Natural Unarmed Attacks.
