Strange Stars Races- Savage Worlds Style, Baby- “Cold Egg”Ksaa

 Ksaa

 

Ksaa are oviparous humanoids with some reptilian characteristics who are native to the Outer Rim. Ksaa have three sexes: large, aggressive, and territorial females; smaller, low-intelligence males; and human-sized, highly intelligent neuters. This last group are born from eggs incubated at a cooler temperature, hence the name khii gan(“cold egg”), meaning “eunuch” but also used  figuratively  to  connote  something like “cunning bastard.” (SS, pg 26).  Here’s Trey’s post on the Ksaa

 

Cunning: The process of incubating eggs at a cooler temperature causes these Ksaa to be highly intelligent.  Their intelligence starts at a d6 instead of a d4.

 

Barbels: These small appendages lead off the “Cold Egg’s” chin and are chemosensory.  A ksaa receives +2 to all Notice (Smarts) checks to detect people who are hiding (or attempting to stealth past them) or to detect a person’s emotional state, or to see if a person is lying.  These barbells are always active for these purposes.

 

Arrogant: Cold Egg kssa are known for their arrogance and belief that they are superior, not just others of their own species, but to other species in the universe.  A cold egg has the Arrogant (Major) hindrance (SWDX, pg 27).

 

Warm-blooded: The reptilian characteristics of the ksaa protect them from their cold-blooded descendants, however they are still extremely uncomfortable and susceptible to cold environments.  A ksaa suffers -4 to rolls to resist cold environmental effects.

I am living in NJ with my girlfriend who is currently wrapping up on obtaining her PhD in Toxicology. I love Star Wars, Role-playing, video games, working out, reading, writing, and hanging with my girlfriend, dog (Perfect), and two kittens (Birch and Brambles). My main focus on this site will be my discussion of Role-playing games and ideas and hopefully contribute something worth a damn. View all posts by wrathofzombie
