Tome of Knowledge Tabletop Homebrew Thread

We've got a general D&D thread but I wanted to make a spot for general homebrew nonsense and the gradual creation of a Solthris Homebrew setting.

The 5e Wiki for ease of use:

A good resource for 5e Homebrew stuff:

And of course, references for Solthris stuff:

For Solthris setting variant...

Thinking of breaking character creation down to:

Race/Subrace: Ability score bonus (+2, +1, -1), Size, Speed, 2 Biological Traits
Ex: Orc (+2 Strength, +1 Constitution, -1 Wisdom, Intellect or Charisma), Medium, 30ft, Darkvision, Pain Tolerance / Human (+2 Any, +1 Any, -1 Any), Medium, 30ft, Human Versatility, Human Endurance

Background: Equipment Pack, 1 Language, 1 Skill and 1 Tool proficiency
Ex: Military, (Explorer's pack, Sign Language, Athletics, Healer Kit) / Scholarly (Scholar's pack, Salt-Glyphs, Jewler's tools)

Class: Starting Weapons/Armor, 1 Skill, Class features and specializations
Ex: War-Cleric (Axe, Chainmail, Intimidation) / Abjuration-Wizard (Staff, Robe, Arcana)

Culture: Select 1 Feat, 1 Language
Ex: Grutharin: Martial Adept, Gruthik / Merulosi: Historian, Trades-tongue

It really is absurdly complicated. The only way to learn is to find a group that is both looking for a player and is willing to put up with a few dozen questions every session. Even then, it's almost like learning a new language.

I mean... Shut up, you stupid Slowpoke! Nobody likes you!

Got a ton of races for Solthris we can list out / divide up later...

Backgrounds... I'll probably want to move into categories to deal with since there are so many now...

Probably divide them into
Military, Academic/Scholarly, Rural, Urban, Mercantile, Criminal, Maritime, etc groups

Classes... probably won't tackle those till Xanathar's guide is out since a lot of the new material can probably be repurposed

Hmn... for Gruthar... it's probably better to break its 'culture' up into the 3 regions for its feats...

Culture: Grutharin
Western: Alert, Quicksmithing*, or Martial Adept

Central: Animal Handling, Magic Initiate, or Savage Attacker

Eastern: Alchemist, War Caster, or Great Weapon Master

*Aether is substituted with a small elemental or animal spirit kept by the player, costs reflect the 'upkeep' of the spirit.

What do yall think?

I think I might make "Class" choice provide 3 additional options for feats based on the "Overall" culture that are shared between any subcultures (ex: they'd be the same for a Grutharin fighter regardless of whether the fighter's from the Western, Central, or Eastern regions)

Does crossing out every reference to a "clip" in my DH rulebook and writing in "magazine" instead count?
