book of the Earthの原文ですと「A textbook for experienced Earth Elementalists」となっておりますが、テスト的にはどういった訳し方が正しいでしょうか？今後のインスピレーションのためにも、教えていただければ幸いです
Barachians' marquee ability is Hop, which allows them to blink near
a targeted tile - a weaker version of controlled blink, essentially.
In exchange, they're somewhat slow-moving (MUT_SLOW 1, half a naga's),
which of course makes their hop even more useful, and they have poor
attributes - 6/6/6 + sid/5, the same total as ghouls. They're roughly
average in their aptitudes, with +1s and -1s used to weakly bias
them toward certain skills without making any dominant.
Hop is initially range 4, with a fuzz radius of 2 tiles; the player
is equally likely to land anywhere within the radius. The ability is
limited by a -Hop status; inspired by Barbs, -Hop only wears off while
you're not moving. (That is, while you're resting, attacking, or casting
spells.) The goal is to avoid making it too easy to run away from
enemies indefinitely by repeatedly hopping, and to avoid annoying
turncount-optimal behaviour during travel.
At XL 13, the player's Hop range increases to 5; this should help
it stay somewhat more relevant as the player accumulates more (and
more reliable) escape options.
A tongue attack was considered, but the design focus of the race
is the Hop, and having two frequently-relevant active abilities on
a species didn't seem like a good idea.

, as their heat increases, they get a fire/earth magic boost and a damage aura.

, an unstable, contaminated humanoid that occasionally explodes. !Curing and kills reduce contam.
