I've been seeing a lot of talk on social media lately about "decolonizing" D&D - how things such as drow and orcs are offensive to real life people of color in their current iterations.

At the same time, I've also found it frustrating that certain logical mixed-heritage options (human + dwarf, gnome + halfling, and so on) just don't have game stats.

And LOTS of people have lamented that static ASIs tend to pigeonhole certain races into certain roles. Dragonborn make good paladins, but not nearly as good of wizards. Half-orcs are solid barbarians, but a suboptimal pick for a druid.

This product goes a long way to solving all three problems. By making racial traits modular and tying ASIs to other options, you get less-racist, more-versatile, and more creatively-flexible, but still fantastical characters. Well done.

My only gripe so far is that it renders pages slowly - and that's a very solvable technical problem.
