|Fiendish Dire Weasel|
While it *can* be used to make new races (similar to the Advanced Races Guide), it really shines in creating monster "classes" like the old Savage Species book. This is because we've already broken down all monster statistics and abilities by CR. Our $10,000 stretch goal will be a whole new section of the book with guidelines on how to do that with example monstrous classes.
That just cleared up a major mis-conception of mine. I read the product description as having the primary goal of creating new races from the ground up. And tbh that doesn't appeal to me, because I just don't think we NEED more, and because I don't think I'm creative enough to come up with more anyway.
Knowing what I know now about its intended purpose, I'm way more interested in this product than I thought I was.
