Crawling Ghosts    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Any)

The Crawling Ghosts (from Parsic “yabuj”, “it crawls”) are the loathsome, disturbing ghosts of those who die lonely and rejected, shut-ins and the forgotten.

Hungry Ghosts -1    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Any)

A Hungry Ghost is born when the lower soul (the animal soul of the body, containing physical urges and violences) becomes angered and, rather than descending to the Underworld, lashes out against the living, which, in its instinctive state and having dulled senses, it percieves as enemies who have “wronged” it.

Remaking the Undead    Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Any)

Undead are, simply put, among the most horrific things one can think of. Can you imagine anything more frightening than a being which is dead and yet still walks? Can you imagine the horror of being faced by the hollow shell of being, a hollow shell which must feed?

The First Ones - A slightly new take on Elves    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)

The First Ones, The Kan-Yow, are the only non constructed beings to know the face of their Creator God. They were born as the world was being made. Tutored by their God (Kanchiyonnaho), they developed a perfect society immersed in the magic of the world. The Kan-Yow breathed magic, they are saturated with it, and they are bound to it as the world itself. As the Gods have withdrawn from the Mythic Lands, as the blessing of Time has graced the World,  they have become the guardians of The Magic and The World.

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.

The name Onkorr given by locals means burning, which again has two meanings;burning bites and burning bodies.

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.

Inheriting

       By: manfred

An old, misanthropic and paranoid man feels his time is coming. There are sons to leave his fortune to, but they are not worth it, not a dime do they deserve! And he doesn't really trust anyone else. And so he has made a decision: as a part of his last will, his henchmen are instructed to burn and destroy all his holdings, buildings as harvest. The lands shall be auctioned off, the proceeds used to pay the servants. Nothing shall stay behind. Nothing.

Depending on the status of the grumpy old man, this weird occurrence may be only a family drama, or it may end up bringing an entire region into chaos. Or the son(s) have found what should happen, and want to prevent it before their sick father dies.
