      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.

          13 templates:
          1 no stat adjustments (empty)
          1 gives +2 to STR, then Subtemplate twice for two other stats
          5 others, one per stat, that each do 1 subtemplate for 1 other stat -2.
          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.
