When designing a Homebrew Race, one can specify modifiers with Proficiency, Half Proficiency, or Expertise (or Half Proficiency Round Up, or Twice Proficiency).
For Proficiency modifiers, there are more options than for Expertise, which in turn has more options than Half Proficiency. It would be great if you could provide the same list of options for all three, as they can clearly all affect the same attributes of the character.
Failing that, it would be helpful if you could add the "Choose a X" options. This way the player can pick an option to apply the bonus to themselves. These options are mostly present for Expertise, but none of them available for Half Proficiency.
In particular, it would be great if you could make the following options available for Half Proficiency (all of which are available for regular Proficiency):
- Choose a Skill
- Choose a Skill or Tool
- Choose a Tool
- Choose a Weapon
- Choose a Simple Weapon
- Choose an Armor Type
- Choose a Saving Throw
That would cover the core options and provide flexibility for Half Proficiency. The most important of these is Choose a Skill. (Which is what I currently need to use for my own Homebrew Race, but I also think this would be the most used option from this list.)
