Michael Reilly made some good suggestions about my race idea. I hadn't thought of Wisdom as a requirement, but now that I do, it seems like a sound idea. However, I feel that it should be at least 11. Now that you look at it, I would guess that Klingons could be Paladins, becuase they do follow a very strict honor code. He also mentioned that their method of advancement was assassination. I didn't really know that. I watched every show of the Next Generation for the seven years it was on and I don't remember seeing that. I do remember their challenges. In the one about the Klingon civil war, one Klingon challenged Goron, saying he wasn't fit to lead. They then fought to decide. Now, this is what I think you meant. I would agree with that since the first officer could feel that the captain was no longer fit to command, and challenge him for the "chair". I forgot to mention that the posting I am basing this on did say that Rangers and Paladins could specialize according to the specializing as many times as you want rule. This I also agree with. Now to the ability adjustments. Yes, Michael is right. They do have great strength. I am adjusting them the way you suggested. +2 sounds reasonable, and the charisma penalty is still within what I had in mind. Typing this has made me think of another item I left out: ability limits. Strength: 19 Intelligence: 18 dexterity: 18 Constitution: 19 Wisdom: 18 Charisma: 15 Since I have received an optimistic response, I am going ahead with my project. This is going to be a big task, since I have to create their homeworld, their society, thei vessels, and their military architecture. I'll keep posting my progress as I go along.
