    Should'nt the hylotl race breathe under water and if not should'nt they swim faster then other classes after all they are fish people?

    We've went over this ages ago. Chucklefish's official position is that they don't want to introduce imbalance between races, since then, apparently, people will start to chose race according to stats, not personal preference.

    And Hylotl are amphibians, not fish. Amphibians, like frogs, toads and salamanders, need to breathe air, they only have gills during larval (tadpole) stage, with exception of axolotles.

    Not to mention, hylotl are not aquatic by nature, since lore wise they were forced under water. Plus, you are projecting salamander characteristics onto a fictional alien race.
