Subject:  Re: Klingon project is a go.
	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.

Stay Tuned!
