I'm slowly converting races from Radiance RPG. The main unique thing that they do with their races is that each race progresses
, with options being chosen as time goes on. Normal Epic RPG character creation grants 12 skill points or more. Racial abilities could add up to around half a dozen more, over time. This is very much a work in progress (so will be continuing to fix question marks and unconverted skills and attributes), but would love to hear feedback from whoever might be interested.
