I’m really liking 5th Edition so far, although I’m just at the “reading the Players’ Handbook” stage. I was surprised by the lack of a quick reference chart for racial stat bonuses in the book, and on the Web. So I made one.
In case anyone else finds it handy, here’s a link to the Google Doc.
Looking it over, I’m struck by a few interesting things:
- There are 5 choices with +2 to Dex, but they’re really just 2 races (Elf and Halfling)
- Three races (Mountain Dwarf, Dragonborn and Half-Orc) have +2 to Strength
- Only Dwarves have +2 Con
- Only Gnomes have +2 Int
- Nobody has +2 to Wisdom. That kind of hoses Clerics a bit, but I think it may be a deliberate choice to make them playable for any race.
