Fantastic. Thanks, all.

So my Plantfolk Species Feat can change to:

Plantfolk

The Elinoi people of the trees are smaller than their Rootwalker cousins but what they lack in size, they make up for in grace and stealth.

Prerequistes: Rootwalker Level 1 only.

Benefit:

Your size changes to Medium [-1]
You lose the Lumbering quality [1]
You gain Natural Elegance [1] and Enlightened Skill (Sneak) [1]
You lose Thick Skin 2 [-1]
You gain the Aloof drawback [-0.5]
You gain Animal Empathy [1]
Other things [Max of 1.5]

Just need to think what else is needed for the concept  ???
Lo, there do I see my father. Lo, there do I see my mother.
And my sister and my brother
Lo, there do I see the line of my people Back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.They bid me take my place among them
In the halls of Valhalla Where the brave may live forever !!!

Not sure why they'd get Aloof, but looks good to me.

I think in all honesty, the Aloof disadvantage was to counter the cost (as I thought) to reduce size. Now. that not the case, I can ditch the Aloof.  ;D

Noticed a few traits I couldn't find on your guide:

always considered to have [specific kind of kit]

ignore Species and Size penalties to Disguise checks

suffer exactly 1 point per damage die when making a Push Limit check

may convert your unarmed damage to [X] damage without suffering the normal -4 attack penalty

In general, you can include any quality from talents, species, or specialties except the attribute, size, and type qualities from species/talents.  The cost would be as listed in the species or specialty document.

Ah.  They were on the spreadsheet but not the wiki.  I've added them.  The first 3 are 0.5 and the last is 1.5

Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you.

This stuff is a big help to me: races/species are my first passion.

Yes, thanks again from me too, Blankbeard.  Your guides really help me to think through my wacky creations.  ;D

Glad to help.  Figuring out how stuff is built is as much fun as anything else done with it, at least for me.
