      Not sure how to tackle this race's stat adjustments. You can

      a) take no stat adjustments
      b) take a +2 to Str, but then take -2 to any 2 stats of your choice
      c) take a +2 to anything but Str, and then take a -2 to any 1 stat of your
      choice

      Would this best be served by 3 separate racial entries, or is there a way to
      do this in one?

        I would do three hidden feats (or, come to think of it, you could use
        templates too I think) in a single race (use ADD:FEAT or
        TEMPLATE:CHOOSE:)... let the user choose, and then craft suitable sub-
        feats/template to do the bonuses and penalties.

            6 templates, each with -2 to a stat, that the others call.

              I suppose you could code a monster class to support this but I think
              I'd go with templates - unless you need the monster class for some
              other reason, inherent casting ability, monster HD, etc.
