Favor Edit

RatedGood Ganteka Future's Favor
This article has been favored and rated Good by Ganteka Future, for the following reasons: Thought out and interesting race. The flavor reads a little awkwardly, lacking a kind of rhythm to it. The flavor could probably stand a little updating and refreshing in general. As for mechanics, and I am aware that this is the purpose the race was built for, they are very pigeonholed into specific personalities. While, any PC can break that mold set forth, it just gives the feel that this race was developed more as a character rather than a race. If that makes sense. Playing to the idea of a self-sustaining race that has to cope with living amongst others always presents a good opportunity for ideas, and with the theme of being tied eternally to undead, there is definitely opportunities for players here. Has a creepy vibe, but that picture doesn't really help.


LogoRoughCrest DanielDraco's Favor
This article has not been favored by DanielDraco, for the following reasons: There's nothing outstanding about this race. The flavor is sparse; describing their usual personality is all well and good, but a race is best defined by society and culture, which are almost entirely omitted. For the racial traits, Ganteka captured the problem perfectly: it's written to be a character, not a race. Anyone who plays a Cardomor would be a fool to not be a necromancer of some sort, and that doesn't lend itself to a believable race. If it were a single caste within a larger race, it would be forgivable, but a race consisting pretty much entirely of necromancers is not plausible to be a self-sustaining society. All that aside, the mechanics aren't anything groundbreaking (or all that useful, even within the role of a necromancer). In general, it's underpowered and overspecialized.


AdaptionEdit

would it be alright if I made an adaption of this race as a variant of mine? It reminds me of Brook from One Piece but the mechanics would never let it play that way --Stryker-Fyre 09:50, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

WorshipEdit

"Those that worship a true God are more likely to worship Him than anyone else." is basically a tautology. --Foxwarrior 06:51, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

I think "Him" refers back to "death" in the previous sentence, making it not a tautology and instead terribly unclear. --IGTN 07:25, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
And on another note, capitalizing "God" and "Him" is generally only appropriate in the context of monotheism (which is very rare in D&D campaigns), and in that case articles are omitted. Also, if it does indeed refer to "death itself", the gender of the pronouns is inconsistent. --DanielDraco 07:31, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
