So I'm working on creating my own setting, with new Icons and everything. I want to include the Shifter race from 4e, however I'm having difficult thinking of anything fun and dramatic to do with their powers. I was hoping for suggestions!

Instead, heal hit points equal to one recovery die + Constitution modifier at the end of each turn until the end of battle (5th level: double the amount; 8th level: triple).Adventurer feat: Also reroll natural 1 on damage rolls.Champion feat: You gain a bonus recovery.
Razorclaw ShiftersRacial bonus: +2 Dexterity OR +2 WisdomRazorclaw Shifting (Racial Power): Once per battle, as a quick action while staggered, grant yourself a +1 bonus to AC and PD until the end of the battle.Adventurer feat: Also gain a +2 bonus to disengage checks.Champion feat: You gain a +1 bonus to disengage checks while not staggered.

New owner of the core book here. I liked it a lot, I have 13 true ways on order.
Is it just me or are humans and wood elves the clear winners in terms of racial abilities? Humans get a straight up bonus feat on top of a really good racial, as well as more stat flexibility. Meanwhile Wood Elves have a decent shot at a whole extra action, which is quite nice. Compared to stuff like Half-orcs and Dwarves, they seem overwpowered.

Hey GMs (and players), what are some ways you have actually used 5s and 6s in relationship rolls? The book is heavy on advice, but light on examples of how to actually use them in a story.
