Strange Stars Races- Savage Worlds Style, Baby- The Blesh

And we continue on our lovely journey of Savage Worlding the awesome Strange Stars!  Today we dissect the Blesh.


Blesh 1

The blesh are a gestalt species blending human and nonhuman. Their insectoid bioroid forms grow like fruit from cybernetic trees on their homeworld. Their minds are a fusion of post-sapient alien intelligence with one of 1,803 digitized human minds downloaded from a crashed ark. Blesh are a peaceful species with reverence for other sophonts. Perhaps due to the human component of their minds, they have a strong curiosity about ancient human artifact (SS, pg 11). Here’s Trey’s post on the Blesh.


Chitin: The thick carapace of the blesh gives them +2 armor (this can be negated with AP weaponry).

Cybernetic Enhancements: Blesh are “born” with several cybernetic enhancements when they emerge from their flesh pods that are attached to their cybernetic tree.  A blesh gets to choose two cybernetic packages at character generation for free (click here for cyberware package options, pg 17- actual conversion for Strange Stars coming soon).

Multiple Arms: Blesh have 6 arms.  This grants the blesh one extra non-movement action per limb and they do not incur the multi-action penalty (SWDX, pg 22).

Knowledgeable: Blesh all have an interest in ancient human artifact.  They start with a d6 in Knowledge (Ancient Human Artifacts)(Smarts).

No Harm: Blesh revere other sophonts and will not do deadly harm under any circumstances.  A blesh has the Pacifist (Major) hindrance (SWDX, pg 30).

Curious: Blesh are curious about the galaxy, species, and many other points of interest.  Blesh have the Curious (Major) hindrance (SWDX, pg 29).

Slow Healers: When the blesh are away from their cybernetic trees they heal slower than normal creatures.  Increase the time for natural healing rolls to 7 days instead of the normal 5 (SWDX, pg 78).

I am a History major attending a community college until I can get more financial aid and attend a four year school. 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.
