So I was makeing a campaign when I realized there were no +2 wisdom races. I also realized that my want to make a seprete selkie, anansi, and kitsune races would be a bit to much. So I decided to quickly wip up this race. I think it's pretty cool but at the moment it looks kinda weak. What do you think? it clearly isn't polished yet, so what do you think should be added?
