Fun subrace idea: Pariah

(Shamelessly ripped of from WH40K. Obviously.)

The idea of the Pariah is simple: they're someone who magic doesn't like. They start with Antimagic at 1.000, and get a decent (maybe 0.800 or 0.900?) modifer to it. They cannot learn anything magical, and (obviously) cannot be mages or priests. They don't get any other unusual attributes, except maybe a boost to Saving Throw or somesuch.

Why is this cool?

Because this way, you can have an antimagic archer without kludging it up with a Dark Sword of Nothingness or whatever... Or, if you want, a ninj... er, antimagic rogue. Which would be seriously cool.

Also, because it would be nice to replace the Hermit subrace with something exactly the opposite. Really, when did anyone last play a hermit unless they wanted a massive challenge? Hermits suck. :P

I play hermits everytime I do a sorcerer because if you run out of MP with a sorcerer you are so dead anyway you might as well be out of HP.

Don't be fooled by the name. Outcasts in Furyband can use magic and are quite good at it; they just have permanently bad charisma and luck.

(I happen to like playing them actually, they make the game a good deal faster. )

That is correct. Outcasts are not like the Paraiahs. That is an interesting idea though...
