This seems overpowered as an LA 0 race. It gets +4 Str, +2 natural armor, powerful build, and is already large size. I think this deserves an LA... Thoughts? --Green Dragon 12:58, 12 August 2008 (MDT)

Well, I worked with Salazar666 to build it as a Large creature without reach, then we were talking about just making it Medium with Powerful Build instead. Looks like powerful build got added, but no Medium size to go with it. Though, even after that, it still feels strong (what, with the +4 Strength) and should have some drawbacks to balance that one out. I think the original point was to avoid LA, so I'll give it some work and see what Salazar666 thinks later.--Ganteka 10:35, 11 September 2008 (MDT)
Goliaths (Races of Stone) have +4 Strength, powerful build, medium size and are +1 LA. --Aarnott 12:50, 11 September 2008 (MDT)
Ah, hopefully that ought to do it. Reduced a few things and added a flavorful Electricity Vulnerability and toned down a couple things, though it'll probably need something else. --Ganteka 16:09, 11 September 2008 (MDT)
There were a couple cyclopes listed in Dragon that took penalties for their single eye. -2 on Search, Spot, and ranged attacks, I believe.
