I kind of liked the Zethra. They at least tried to be a little more than humanoids with bumpy foreheads. However from a game mechanics standpoint, they were way too powerful for PCs.Anyway, where was I. The zethra are weird tentacled blob things. Seems like one of the standard sci-fi things people come up with when trying to get away from the standard humanoid body model. These ones come from the Xagyg ( ) cluster, and shoot energy bolts. I'm really not enthralled, as they have an air of self-concious wackiness about them. When told to say something random, the average person will say Fish! Bad taste is represented by combining purple and green, and the random number is usually 7. So decorate the amorphous blob's room with 7 little flying fish models painted green with purple spots, and you have the wackiest setup ever. Malkav would be proud.
Well, there is the second Dragon run coming much later. Although most if not all of that is post-archives, and I don't remember if the plan for this thread was to go beyond that point.Since What's New? is gone and presumably won't show up again in the thread, here's the link (again) to the online version. Seems to be one month away from being caught up: http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20070107
That kind of roleplaying is the start of the next article - a couple paragraphs of flavor-text/fiction that really shows how you can play that kind of thing. I always liked those three articles.Plus you get plenty of amusing role-playing opportunities. I very much approve.
