The lowest LA for Large size is Half-Ogre in Races of Destiny. +2 LA.

I went through that exercise for a BC DMM Cleric.

Not exactly. The lowest LA for Large size is Half-Ogre in Savage Species. +1 LA. :eh

Which is superceded by the one from Races of Destiny at LA +2. Races of Destiny is 3.5...

One way to treat it is like how the "Lesser" Planetouched is treated in PGtF. You become Humanoid instead of Giant and you lose 1 LA, making it LA +1. There are other repercussions, of course (like you also lose weapon and armour proficiencies for not being a Giant), but you remain vulnerable to things that affect Giants (so don't go fighting Dwarves or Gnomes).

WHAT IS WRONG WITH EVERYONE

OMFG

I HATE IT

STOP SAYING THE LOWEST LA LARGE IS +2

[/rant]

Half minotaur turns a small into medium and medium into large for +1LA

Its good

so half minotaur human has human benefits,
+4 str, +2 con, -2 int, +2 wis
+ 10 speed
gains track
gore attack
[...Alot...]
medium to large bonuses (bonii?) (RAW according to the template)

But most DMs wouldnt allow the +8 Str, -2 Dex, +4 Con +2 NA amongs others...

Nice, eh?

D-End

WOW, EPIC FAIL WAS HADz BY ME

Huge thread necro,

I losedez allz me internets

Welcome, oh eloquent new BG citizen !

Many people try to avoid building with Dragon Magazine content - which Half-Minotaur is. Hence the reliance on Half-Ogre. :)

Right.  I really prefer to avoid Dragon content, particularly 3.0 Dragon content, which is why I said I'd rather avoid half-minotaur in the first post.
