Large Sentient Amphibians, The Igatic lumber along on their massive legs and use tenicals along the sholders for fine manipulation. Request from Jesse the Gamemaster http://www.swagonline.net/forums/taken-requests/species-request-casca19…
Bizarre creature! Nailed the description.
This is why Dugs and Hutts are not allowed to breed.......................again.
Holy wow. Now I want to have an Igatic in my game. Say, Jesse. Do you have stats?
ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNO SPACE TOAD....
See? Thats what I kept saying after drawing the eyes.lol
I can post D6 stats for them, yes. The Igatic are pretty enigmatic and the mysteries surrounding them are some of my best work as a GM (if I do say so myself) and I'm VERY excited to reveal them both to my players and the podcast audience. I don't want to spoil too much about them, but I'll happily post stats. For this planet, there will be a huge number of 'named' NPCs so I needed a way for players to be able to mentally distinguish them, I wanted them each to be unique with their own personality and appearance. To that end I needed a race I could create 'headshots' so I settled on frogs. (There's a huge variety in coloration and features which should make them distinct to players) Since many star wars aliens are based on Earth creatures I figured I could get away with it. (Gamorrean's are pigs. Wookiees are shaggy dogs, Chevin are based on an Elephant (heck, even the name "Ephant Mon") Quarren are squids, Aqualish are walruses, Ranat are rats, Chadra Fan are Bats, etc etc.)
Here's a selection of the NPC's I'll be giving to the players:
Journeyman Transporter Bloiaoiblo
Defense Minister ForeeForeep
Master Singer Legloth
Master Trainer Lealthol
Prime Minister Maelgorriethon
High Singer Metonika
Internal Affairs Minister OoothRouthl
Home Planet: Silactria IV
Attribute Dice: 13D
Limited Mobility: Igatic only roll half their skill/attribute dice (round down) when attempting any Dexterity roll that involves the whole body. (Dodge, Acrobatics, Running, Melee Combat, Lightsaber, Melee Parry)
Fire & Heat Vulnerability: As amphibians, Igatic are particularly vulnerable to fire & heat. +1D damage from fire and heat sources (Including blasters, grenades and thermal detonators)
Singing: Singing is integral to Igatic culture. All Igatic receive +1D to Perception:Singing for free upon character creation. This bonus may allow the Igatic to exceed the +2D cap on starting skills.
The Igatic prefer things to be of one place or another. Perhaps it is their amphibian nature, growing up underwater and moving to land as adults, but multi-function devices, ships, even environments are generally shunned. No one would hold two different jobs or plant a tree in a city.
Size: up to 2.4m tall, up to 4m long; 600kgs
Mon Calamari are goldfish!
