Archive for the ‘Species’ Category

Phew!!! It’s been a long and arduous month. I started this month deciding I would write up the various species (read the misnomer ‘races’) foe the OverBurn RPG. Well, along the way I got ideas for the dice mechanics, the skill system, and maybe a wee bit of writing difficulty. I finally finished the write-up on the species; it’s a little unpolished but at least the section is finished.

So, what species am I putting into the game? Well, I’ve settled on seven distinct species that will give the players something to choose from. A few of the races are:

  • True Humans – Normal people that have evolved.
  • Rovdyr – Bipedal reptiles that have declared war on humans.
  • Ralshasa – Genetically created race of cat-people.
  • Gene-Borne Humans – Humans that were enhanced before the apocalypse.

The remaining species I’m leaving for the game, but I am quite happy with the turn out. Now to find someone to look them over.
