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.

Whimsical Flora    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Any)

All too often, a new magical creature, or plant is not seen with wonder or awe, but rather a keen eye for exploitation. In the often violent and brutal realm of role-playing, the wonders of nature are often overlooked, and never realized. I though I would start this thread to see if anyone else had any ideas along these lines. With that being said, may I present…

Mediaeval Style Mythical Beasts    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)

The authors of Mediaeval bestiaries were not merely concerned with providing a description of creatures. No, for them, everything in Creation had a purpose - nothing had been made without an ulterior aim: the edification and instruction of sinful man. So, each creature described is not merely an animal but a living parable, imbued with moral or religious symbolism.

       By: Scrasamax

After a long night of reveling and merriment celebrating their latest victory, one of the PCs awakens with his/her head shaved and a large ornate tattoo on top of their head. Tacky, yes but also a painstaking work of art that has left them with a headache to beat their hangover. The kicker? It is a huge symbol of the god of Evil, Assassins, the Drow, Munchkins, something really really offensive
