Goblins are heavily penalised at the moment. Apart from dex all max stats are 55 or less and starting stats are 24 or less. The extra dex is nice but I wonder if it would be fairer for str and con at least 27/55 and charisma 24/48.They make dreadful casters too.

What about a 25% bonus to sneak and backstab perhaps?

I think everything else is pretty well balanced

I was torn between Orc and Gnome. Chose Orc.

They can get a high 71 str, but they start at 33 - ouch. with a max dex of 55, and max con of 60 it's not a great race statistically. (And no, I didn't forget the 51 int/wis - wheeeeee). The racial benefits don't seem overly fantastic to me to offset the low stats.

Gnome on the other hand, has pretty much one thing going for it - int and pracs. Wis tops at 55 (ow) con 51 (ow) and even charisma (now needed for charmie spells) 55. And dex/str not worth mentioning. When you contrast the elf with the gnome, it's no contest - elves can get x 71's same str, better wis and better con!

So, I vote both but since I could only pick one, I went Orc. Both will be beat by other races at any class they select.

I dont see any around. Their str is too low along with rest but high dex. Not enough to want to try one.
