Characters may choose to switch a stat they get a bonus to at character creation to either STR, INT, or CHA. For instance, if the race you choose gets a +2 to DEX and a +2 to WIS, a dragonblooded character of that race could choose to have a +2 DEX and a +2 INT instead. This alternate racial feature CANNOT be used to double a stat bonus. For instance, you could not take a frozenclaw Orc, with his +2 STR and +2 CON, and switch the CON bonus for an additional +2 STR.

Characters that choose to be Dragonblooded are slightly less in tune with the natural inclinations of their race. Though minor this results in the loss of a trait or ability; characters that take this option lose their racial skill bonuses.
