Clowns: A race of mute, brightly colored beings dubbed "Clowns" in the absence of a name that they call themselves. They average about 4 feet tall and have porportions much like halflings. Their faces are absolutely featureless except for large, glowing eyes. They are (apparently) only as intelligent as a smart dog and thus are kept as pets and house-servants.
Mardaru: Mardaru exist only in space now, as their home-planet was destroyed by an asteroid storm a thousand years ago. They are tube-like beings about 9 feet long with a lamprey-like mouth at the end. Bioluminescent spots line their bodies, and tiny tentacular feet cover the bottom. They are blind, but possess an extremely powerful tactile sense. They are also powerful psionicists.
Phleig: The Phleig are known only through the technology and computers that they leave behind. They are now extinct, with the last Phleig ever, Sumoc, having died several hundred years ago. They possessed a very advanced level of technology, though most is now non-functional because their power sources were destroyed by the Phleig. Sumoc was quoted as saying that the reason for this was so that "the power source could not be used for evil."
Grammadai: These beings defy science and seem to have DNA constructed from tachyon particles. This would suggest genetic tampering, and, sure enough, they rate high on the Von Arven Genetic Tampering and Construction Notes Scale. The Grammadai themselves claim to have originated in another dimension, a tachyon universe. Birdheads dispute this claim. Grammadai average about 9 feet tall and extremely bulbous, much like a gigantic fungus-shaped blot of black with arms and legs. They have no features, being a smooth, oily, dark surface.
