Do you think that this trait should be against all humanoids or one sub type?


Advice


Scarred by Space Pirates

You were attacked by space pirates in your youth, inspiring you to find ways to deal with the alien interlopers should they return.

Benefit(s) You gain a +1 trait bonus on attack rolls against humanoids.

Right now it gives +1 to hit against all humanoids. So humans, elves gnomes and so one.

or do you think it should be against one subtype? like human or elf.


Seems fine. Ancestral Weapon gets you a masterwork melee weapon made silver or cold iron up to 500 gp and a +1 trait bonus on attack rolls with weapons made of the selected material. Personally Scarred by Space Pirates seems weaker as Ancestral Weapon get you a +1 from masterwork and another from the trait bonus.


Did not think of that.

Also, thank you I forgot the name of that trait.


I don't know why this thread got moved to homebrew (apparently a mod didn't recognize the trait), but it is supposed to be against specific subtypes, but I guess they're ones that d20pfsrd can't mention? (Which is weird because d20pfsrd has full pages for some of them, but I don't really know how the OGL works.)

So now we can argue whether it applies to elves.

i think they would have mentioned elfs if it worked on them as well
