**Theory 1**

Seen in Elves and Trolls.

Start with Human's stats 1/6 (9) in everything.

Pick a Vision for Free (Thermographic or Low Light Vision) to balance out the Human's Edge.

Increasing an Attribute costs 10 BP. Reducing an Attribute Debits 10.

If lowering Reaction or Intuition, 5 BP Debit for every point of Initiative lost

If Increasing Reaction or Intuition, 5 BP Cost for every point of Initiative Gained (No Example Available to prove)

Add and Subtract Qualities/Metagenetic Qualities. Viola.

Trolls: FREE TGV, +40 Bod, +40 Str, +5 Rch, +10 arm, -10 Agi, -20 Cha, -10 Int, -10 Log, -5 Init

Total: 40 BP cost.

Elves: Free LLV, +10 Agil, +20 Cha

Total: 30 BP Cost

**Theory 2**

Seen in Dwarves, Orcs and Elves

Start with Human's stats 1/6 (9) in everything.

Pick a Vision for Free (Thermographic or Low Light Vision) to balance out the Human's Edge.

Increasing an Attribute Value costs 10 BP. Reducing an Attribute Maximum Value below 6 Debits 15.

If lowering Reaction or Intuition, 5 BP Debit for every point of Initiative lost

If Increasing Reaction or Intuition, 5 BP Cost for every point of Initiative Gained (No Example Available to prove)

Add and Subtract Qualities/Metagenetic Qualities. Viola.

Orc: +30 Bod, +20 Str, Free LLV, -15 Cha, -15 Log

Total: 20

Dwarf: +10 Bod, +20 Str, +10 Will, Free TGV, +5 P/T Bod, -15 React, -5 Init

Total: 25

Elf: As Above as changes in theory don't apply as no negatives occur.

**Theory 3**

Seen in Dwarves, Elves and Trolls

Who knows what the hell is going on. The third Theory is a bit more complex and doesn't really fit Orcs but it fits Trolls Properly but seems to be more Balanced and combines Theories 1 and 2.

Start with Human's stats 1/6 (9) in everything.

Pick a Vision for Free (Thermographic or Low Light Vision) to balance out the Human's Edge.

Increasing an Attribute Value by up to 2 costs 10 BP each and 15 BP per increase afterwards. Reducing an Attribute Maximum Value below 6 Debits 15 the first time and by 10 BP for each additional point off.

If lowering Reaction or Intuition, 5 BP Debit for every point of Initiative lost.

If Increasing Reaction or Intuition, 5 BP Cost for every point of Initiative Gained (No Example Available to prove)

Add and Subtract Qualities/Metagenetic Qualities.

Dwarves: +10 Bod, +20 Str, +10 Will, +5 TGV, +5 P/T Bod, -15 React, -5 Init

Totals: 25

Elves: Again, boring

Trolls: +50 Bod, +50 Str, Free TGV, +5 Rch, +10 arm, -15 Agi, -25 Cha, -15 Int, -15 Log, -5 Init

(Increasing body/Str by 2 = 10 each total 40, by 2 more is 15 each or 60. Subtracting Charisma the first time is 15, the second time 10 for a total of 25)

Totals: 40

However, this Method doesn't work Orcs who get a +3 to their Body.

Orc: +35 Bod, +20 Str, Free LLV, -15 Cha, -15 Log

Total: 25 (not 20, which is its cost).

So theory 3 is 5 points Shy on the Orc. other than that, it doesn't look like a bad system. I'll give it a test.

Sidhe (paying Homage to the People of the Mound, Tuatha de Danann)

Bod: 1/4, Agil: 4/9, React: 2/7, Str: 1/6, Cha 3/8, Int 2/7, Log 1/6, Will 2/7

Lowlight Vision, Arcane Arrester, Celerity, Unusual Hair, Mood Hair, Symbiosis, Distinct Style (lvl 3)

+35 Agil, +10 react, +20 Cha, +10 Int, +10 Will, +25 Arc Arr, +5 Celerity, (forgot to Add Initiative) +10 Init = 140 BP

-25 Bod, -10 Mood/Unusual hair, -10 Symbiot, -15 Distinct Style = 60 BP

140 - 60 = 80 BP

So Goofing around and this is 80 BP.

Bod: 1/4, Agil: 4/9, React: 2/7, Str: 1/6, Cha 3/8, Int 2/7, Log 1/6, Will 2/7

Lowlight Vision, Glamour, Arcane Arrester, Celerity, Unusual Hair, Mood Hair, Symbiosis, Distinct Style (lvl 3)

Sidhe are Tall, graceful, fast and great mages and are essentially what fictional elves were modelled after from Celtic lore/legend. They are the Fey Kind who fought the Fir Bolg. I really don't want to go into their whole invisibility and shape changing stuff =P.

Was just having some fun with the Race Creation Theory.

Thoughts?

Edit: I realized I forgot to add the points cost for Initiative changes in my example race, which will increase its Points cost. thought it seemed kinda low. Tack on another 10 points. Initiative is then 4/14 (21).
