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.
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.
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.
