As I've played my small-size Paladin more and more, I keep quietly bemoaning the fact that there isn't an XR subrace that would allow for small-sized Paladins. I think this quoted idea needs some fine-tuning, and I'm personally fond of it Gnome as the base race rather than Halfling, but I just figured I'd bring it up again and see if I could get a yes or no for the concept. Anyway, here's the suggestion:
"Half-Shiradi" (secret eXtremely Rare; adds wings)
- FCs: Bard, Paladin
- +8 STR, +6 CHA, free feats: Great Charisma I, Great Charisma II, Divine Might, Divine Shield, Extra Smiting
- Other: +1 dice to Greater Smite damage; Levitation
The decision to add wings came from the appearance for Shiradi, one of the types of Eladrin, which can be seen here.
I know it's kind of silly to think that this might be added, but I kind of feel like it might have just been overlooked, especially since it seemed like we were trying to give upgrades for all of the BUR races with the XR subraces. Let me know.
