Answerin (Minor Human Race)

Postby mancerbear » Thu Jun 28, 2018 3:18 am

I’m trying to createthe Answerin for Mongoose 2e. This is how far I’ve got. Feedback always welcome.

Anwerin come from a low gravity planet, making them slightly weaker than other humans. They have a -1 penalty to Str and End.

Answerin are slightly more agile than other humans. They gain a +1 to their Dex.

All Answerin gain the following Traits.

Adrenal Surge
All Answerin are able to voluntarily induce a voluntary surge of adrenaline, giving them a temporary +2 to their Str and Dex. This bonus only last for one minute, after which their Str and Dex return to normal and suffer a further penalty of -2. This penalty lasts for one hour. Answerin are unable to initiate another adrenal surge until this penalty wears off.

Dark Vision
Answerin have better night vision than other humans. They gain a +1 DM to counter the negative effects of using a skill in darkness.

I wouldn't penalize Endurance on any minor human race. They may take an Endurance penalty due to gravity higher than their homeworld normal, but the Endurance characteristic itself need not be adjusted. If you want to reduce characteristics for the sake of play balance, you could knock another point off Strength, or if it's appropriate to existing descriptions of Answerin (which I don't have handy), from Social Status.

Good choice to use the Answerin. I remember reading about this race in Challenge I believe it was, many years ago. I always thought it would be cool to offer them as an alternative race for a player to run.
