    Considering this is for DnD Next, I’m gonna use this too (if you do not mind), I’m really looking forward to using these rules and letting my players have fun with imagining the new ways to justify their choices

      Use away. I may modify it a bit as it is kind of a living document. I have gotten the modify and home brew bug ever since DnD Next was started. I am (slowly) working on races also and I have a trait list. I do not care much about complete balance as long as no PC is overpowered versus another PC.
