    Default It's orange, mean, and ugly! (PEACH)

    Back again with another race! Like I said last time, I'm not very good with crunch, so I'd like it if the crunch-oriented would take a look at this. I give a preemptive Thank You, and will give a cookie for useful information making this race balanced.



    Half Hobgoblin: The product of a relationship between a Hobgoblin and a human, Half-Hobgoblin typically descend from Lebestrat origin. Their take on the characteristics of the Hobgoblin parent more so than the human, with their skin usually gaining a red or orange hue, and their hair being a dark brown or black color. Their body size and features are more human like, though.
    * * *+2 Constitution, -2 Charisma. Half-Hobgoblins are hardy, but tend to be shunned due to their unappealing appearance and heritage.
    * * *Medium: As Medium creatures, half-Hobgoblins have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
    * * *Half-Hobgoblin base land speed is 30 feet.
    * * *Darkvision: Half-Hobgoblins can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and half-Hobgoblins can function just fine with no light at all.
    . * * * * * * * +2 on Move Silently checks. Hobgoblins are apt for remaining silent
    * * *Hobgoblin Blood: For all effects related to race, a half-Hobgoblin is considered a Hobgoblin.
    * * *Automatic Languages: Common and Gorin. Bonus Languages: Goblin, Infernal, and Moon Elven.
    * * *Favored Class: Fighter. A multiclass Half-Hobgoblins fighter class does not count when determining whether he takes an experience point penalty.

    I like the idea (an undeniably LA 0 Hobgoblin) but it seems a little blah, much like other half-races. It's kinda like a Half-Orc with a Dwarf's stat adjustments, which I guess puts it in the lower half of PC races. Also, what's with the -2 Spot? I don't get the mechanical or flavor justifications for that. Since when do Hobgoblins have bad eyesight?

    I'd nix that, give them a +2 racial bonus to Move Silently, and call it balanced.

    Also, what's Gorin?

    Gorin's a custom language for the homebrew, spoken mainly by the nation the Half-Hobgoblin hails from.

    Edit: Changed the skill.

    Cookie for you.
