The Monroi    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

Pride. Strength. Skill.
These are the values of the Monroi, woven into their very being - for them, battle is not just self-preservation, but a need.

The Dunshar    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

Seldom does one see a Dunshar “nude”, as an amorphous masses of jelly.  They can animate mud, earth, stone or metal, and use them as a body to shield their fragile self.

Elves of Tallarn    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

Elves are said to be girly, elves are said to be gay. What does this popular opinion stem from? Hardly their lack of facial hair. Note: Not quite a new take, but something to think about.

Children of HighFather    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

These are Elves of a different sort. Not quite a new take. The HighFather is the father of all his race. He is immortal, powerful, and a strong physical presence. His memory is quite powerful- it is the races way of immortality - to be remembered by the HighFather.

True Trolls - A New Take On Trolls    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

I was spending some time reading some Rune Quest, Changeling, and Castle Falkenstein material and remembered why I hated most of the Trolls found in the majority of “Psuedo Medival, Eurpoeanesk Fantasies”.  So once again, I charged up my rant muscles and….

The Urwhor- A New Look At Orcs    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

Since the New Look At Dwarves was such a success, I decided that I would try an overhaul of another fantasy standard which I find boring, the Orcs. I’m using the Orcs only as a very loose base.

Onkorr Ants    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)

Manna Fleas    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Any)

These creatures have the uncanny ability to feel the ripples of magic, so they travel through planes, rather than distance to find food.

Ogone flies    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)

These little buggers are the bane and blessing of adventurers.  If you find a location with lots of ogone’s, you know there is magic and magical treasure about.  However, since the average adventurer has more magic items than the normal area, the flies will hang around the adventurer and their items.

Hewdamian Humans    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

I don’t know why we are the outcasts of the lands. We out number the others and our armies are superior. We fight no more than the other races have in their historys. Why do they have contempt for us? It is because they fear us, the fear that we are better.

The Lyrans: A New Take on Elves    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

These people could exist on a world with mythical elves, as they are not another race… they are humans.  They are an ethnic group that is far removed from “normal” human stock. They have many traits (physical and cultural) that make them very different.  Given Lyran culture and ways, if the Lyrans “went away”, a few hundred years later people would think of Lyrans the same way as we think of Elves…  some strange mythical peoples.

A culture must hide its hands in the arm of their clothing as a sign of respect and peace. When approaching somebody you show them respect by crossing your arms and hiding the hands in the shirt sleeves. Nobody worries about hidden knives and such, it is the threat of magic that this custom was created to prevent.
