Would love to see more alternate racial traits that add other creature's abilities/traits from fey, dragons, magical beast, aberrations, etc. These could apply to many races, not just one, they just have to list what racial traits they replace for each race.

A different take: our group has made 'subraces' into feats taken at first level or given a point cost to buy.

EG: Elves

Night Elves-dazzled by light, extremely good night vision
Fire Elves-Fire resistance
Inuits-Elves adapted to the cold
Shadow Elves-from one of the Shadow realms
Fey Elves-vulnerable to cold worked iron, etc. but weird powers.

These all take the level 1 character feat.

Silver Crusade

I noticed that Blood of the Beasts has an alternate racial trait for kitsune to get a bonus to int instead of cha. I'd love to see the same for gnomes. It makes sense, given that they're known for tinkering and building things.

I would love to see alternate racial mods for a lot of races.

Bwang, I can see those as alternate racial traits as well as feats. Especially since this is a wish list for alternate racial traits;)

Yep, I thought so too, but I got outvoted. I just tossed this in as food for thought. When I was running my game, I used traits as you said, but I'm on hiatus ATM.

I think there is an alternate racial trait for elves in ARG that grants energy resistance.

More alternate racial traits that grant bonuses to attack rolls, damage rolls, AC, and/or saves vs a creature type or subtype.
