Description Edit | History

Publisher Blurb:

Tired of playing the alien races that someone else has created? Why not make your own?

Alien Creation contains everything you could every need to build your own player-ready alien races for the Modern d20 rulebook. Whether you are a game master looking to populate your campaign with interesting aliens or a player with your own idea for a unique character, this book have what you need. The point based creation system ensures that all of the alien species made with these rules are roughly equal, each with its own characteristic strengths and weaknesses.
This book has complete rules and advice for making balanced, playable races for your science fiction campaign. The guidelines in this book allow you create anything you can imagine, all without overpowering the other species in your game. The step by step creation process is fast and easy, focusing on the game rule considerations and leaving everything else to your own imagination. The species creation recipe card provides you with a convenient template to record and share your unique alien race.

Do you want a race of warlike plant people or gentle giants with psionic powers? Hyper intelligent machines or dumb brutes with amazing strength? Wings? Claws? Special attacks? Almost any trait you can think of is included in the list of traits that you can buy with your creation points. You can also take racial drawbacks to increase the number of points that you have to spend.

Alien Creation also has tons of advice for rounding out your new aliens. This book covers everything from how they communicate with each other to ideas for creating their physical description and society. Detailing their civilization and culture will be a snap with ready made guidelines that cover aggressiveness, determination, independence, technological development, and more.

Alien Creation provides gamers with:

  • Advice on creating a species concept
  • Rules for balancing ability scores
  • A point based system for buying species traits
  • Racial skills, feats, and drawbacks
  • Guidelines for creating the finishing touches to round out your new species and their civilization
  • Four sample races
  • Alien racial levels for playing species that are more powerful than standard humanoids

This book is compatible with the Modern d20 rulebook.
