The Water Child race option (from the APG) gives you the option to pick Aquan as a bonus language something by my reading a half-elves can already do (See spoilers below). I checked the errata and the FAQ but this doesn't seem to be listed. I'm looking at just house ruling it be Aquan for free but I thought I check with the world to see if I'm missing something.

Both from PRD

Water Child:
Water Child: Some half-elves are born of elves adapted to life on or near the water. These half-elves gain a +4 racial bonus on Swim checks, can always take 10 while swimming, and may choose Aquan as a bonus language. This racial trait replaces the half-elf's adaptability and multitalented racial traits.

Half-Elf Languages:
Languages: Half-elves begin play speaking Common and Elven. Half-elves with high Intelligence scores can choose any languages they want (except secret languages, such as Druidic).

Hello all,

I'm in the process of getting ready to start Haunting of Harrowstone in the next few weeks and have been working with my players to get characters decided on and created. I've currently planning on having four players using a 15 point buy, as of now we have the following class make up

Half-elf Rouge
Half-elf Summoner-Synthesist
Human Monk
Unknown race Bard

I'm a little concerned about the group makeup as Harrowstone really seem to me want you to have some type of positive energy class (oracle, cleric ,paladin, etc). Has anyone run Harrowstone with no real healers have any advice? I've seen people in some cases have ruled holy water hurts haunts, is this option the best way to make this work? Or do I try to encourage someone to play something else?

I've already asked for the players to turn in two characters to start so that they have a character waiting in the wings if someone dies or their current character just doesn't work for them. The idea being that the backup character is in the will too but is a background NPC until they are needed. Do I leave it at that, and just let them see how they do?
