    KittieKitty's idea, originally.

    Rules:
    To submit a race PM bamthedoc or Tacitus.
    This thread is a recommendation to read before choosing a race for your characters.
    This thread is not neccessary to read.


    I am not including all races with this. Elves and Dragons are the primary focus of this first post.

    Dragon Races

    Race: Dragon
    Classification: Beast
    ~~Race1: Dragon
    ~~Race2: NONE
    Class Preferance: NONE
    Weapon Preference: Claw, Tail, Wings, Horn, Teeth, Body
    The dragon is fearful creature. The most intelligent and oldest know more languages than thought to exist. They are powerful and tend to specialize in only one elemental use.

    Race: Half-Dragon
    Classification: "half-breed"
    ~~Race1: Dragon
    ~~Race2: Any
    Class Preferance: Race2's available races
    Weapon Preference: Class weapon, Dragon preferances
    The half-dragon is far weaker than their full-blooded name-sakes. They are basically the same, but they transorm into their dragon-form.

    Race: Dragonoid
    Classification: "half-breed"
    ~~Race1: Dragon (~1/3)
    ~~Race2: Human (~1/4)
    ~~Race3: Elf (specific determines allignment; ~1/4)
    ~~Race4: x (can be any; remaining)
    Class Preferance: Fighter/Mage == Can be any, however
    Weapon Predisposition: Sword/Claw == Can use any
    The Dragonoid being has three forms. The first is the humanoid form. They appear as either human or thier strongest "other" race characteristic. The second is the dragon form. It takes after their "strongest" ancestor or elemental training. The third is a humanoid form retaining all dragon abilities, and a few attributes. This "dragonoid" form retains the claws, horn(s), and wings. They are much faster and more agile like this, but also retain the dragon's strengths and elemental abilities. Certain ancestorial dragons may even bestow added attributes. They are also much stronger than their full-blooded dragon ancestors, an oddity.

    Race: Curse Dragonoid
    Classification: Cursed or Ritual
    ~~Race1: Human, Elf (not High or Night), Half-Elf, Dwarf, etc. (most human looking)
    ~~Race2: Dragon's Blood
    Class Preferance: Previous Class
    Weapon Predisposition: Sword/Claw and Previous Preferance
    They normally look very unusual, as they appear to have claws and wings. They, however, do not have any horns as they are not really dragons. They only have one transformation available, that of the dragon. Their full dragon's blood comes to the surface as they turn into that dragon. Generally they are weaker than full-blooded dragons, but they find ways to comfinsate.

    Elven Races

    Elves are considered the elden race because of thier exasboratinly long life spans, and the fact that the High Elves are the oldest race known. I'll only give the general ages Elves live to here. FYI: Some of them I can't remember the exact names.

    High Elves -- Imortal
    Immortal and the eldest of the Elven races, the High Elves have a royal, holy air about them. They can make fearsome enemies or powerful allies. They can be any class and use any weapon (available to class).

    Meadow Elves -- 1,500
    Not the tallest of races, they are often called Grass Runners for their diminuative size. They tend to fair best as Bards due to their wonderous voices. They, however, do not make very good fighters.

    Forest Elves -- 2,000
    Closes to the High Elves, they inhabit the forests. They have a natural predisposition to ranger and fighter abilities, but can be of any class.

    Night Elves -- 2,500
    Haters of the light, they inhabit caves and avoid sunlight. Many believe that the sun will hurt or kill them, but that is somewhat untrue. They longer they are without sun; the more vulnerable they are. They can be of any class.

    Half-Elves -- 1,000
    Shunned by many "pure" Elven races, the half-elves are spawn of human and elven interbreeding. They have the strengths, and weaknesses, of both races. They also have all classes available to the elves.

    Elven Sprites -- 500
    Magical and relitively short-lived, they are tiny and only about the size of a human's arm. They cannot hold any normal weapons or be of classes that prefer physical attacks. They are mainly mages or of special "sprite only" classes.

    Water Elves -- 2,000
    As you mat imagine, they live in waterways and can breath in water and on land, and they have a fierce rivalry with the Magma Elves. They can be any class, and often prefer spears and tridents. They can use any weapon, however, and are well attached to their watery element.

    Magma Elves -- 750
    Living in the very heart of volcanoes, they prefer heat and have a fierce rivalry with the Water Elves. They can be any class; though, they prefer fighting classes. They prefer axes (two-handed), but they can use any weapon.

    Dwarves-All dwarves live to be from 200-250 years of age.

    Mountain Dwarf-
    Mountain Dwarves are of two of the most widley known race of dwarf. Mountain dwarves are stout warriors, more adept with an ax. Dwarves classes are mainly melee oriented.

    Hill Dwarf-
    Tallest of the dwarf nation, Hill Dwarves are great hunters, allies of forest elves, Hill Dwarves are more melee/range oriented than most dwarves.

    Dark Dwarf-
    Living in the darkest part of the Dwarf Kingdoms, Dark Dwarves are fond of dark magic, thus, isolated from most dwarf clans. Dark Dwarves are some of the weakest melee fighters, but their spells and Familiars are more than a match.

    Earth Dwarf-
    Living close to the surface, Earth Dwarves are also a caster race, but more earth oriented than life or darkness. Casters can manipulate the earth to its will(not trees, but rocks, mountains, etc.) Earth dwarves can hold their own in combat.

    Gully Dwarves-
    Gully Dwarves are the lowest class of Dwarf, they even live away from their taller cousins(Gully Dwarves are the smallest dwarf race) Gully Dwarfs like micheouf and are probably one of the dumbest speaking creatures you will find. Good at...not much, pissing someone off i guess.

    A place where there is no dark
    Race: Protoss
    Classification: Large Outsider

    Physical Description: Most protoss stand about 9 to 10 feet tall and weigh 300 to 400 pounds. They have an overall aspect that invites to believe in fragility and weakness, but these creatures sport a surprising strength and agility. Their humanoid body has four-fingered hands, and has an alien face that lacks any form of mouth, nose, nor ears; their skin consists on layers of fine but strong scales of various colors, from dull brown to metallic dark blue. Their legs may make some remind the back legs of most quadrupeds, and end in two fingers with blunt claws.

    Max age: 1050

    Combat: prefer claw bracers and punch daggers, they try to use their psionic abilities in battle whenever possible

    Names: Protoss names usually feel regal and elegant, and some have a vague resemblance with Greek or Babylonian names

    Protoss don't really hanging out with gnomes or halflings, not to mention the Zerg

    Race abilities:
    Inertial Armor: his psionics create a field of force that protect against attacks, but not completely
    Protoss are classified as large, and as being large they can't hide as easily, can be hit easier and can't hit as well, but their strength makes up for it
    Scaly hide: less damage

    Restrictions: To use a protoss character, you must give a very detailed history and purpose for him being away from Aiur, also the limits for godmodding are stepped up, since you are a superior race you are not as powerful in whatever class you may be as compared to a human

    Shadow Human

    Classification: Half human, half shadow

    Class preference: Anything involved with melee.

    Information: They are humans but black, I'm not talking about African Americans. I mean black. They also regenerate health a lot faster while in the dark.

    =============

    Grimi

    Classification: Part-beast

    Class Preferance: Any. Grimis don't mind fighting with meele/range, or magic.

    Weapons Preferance: Again, any.

    Information: Grimis are graceful, partially beast (feline) creatures which can inhabit just about any climate. They prefer either mild climate with decidous forests, or warm and rainy climate of lush tropical jungles. They are friendly and tolerant with most races, and generally dislike war. Some get easily provoked, aspecially if you hurt them where it counts. (physically or emotionally.) They rely heavily on instincts, which often gets them into trouble, especially young children who are very curious and playful.
    Grimis age about 10x slover than humans, and can live up to 1000 years of age, maybe longer.

    Abilities: The Grimis are exceptional hunters, well known for their extreme agility and keen senses. Their advanced sense of sight, sound and smell can be equal to that of a beast. Each Grimi naturally posseses the power of shape-shifting - they may shift into a feline beast they resemble. Their second shapeshifting ability is a bit different however - they change this way when provoked, angered, or in extreme danger. Their eyes will gain a fierce glow, their talons grow greater, and they appear a bit taller and more menacing. They don't get this angry most of the time, but when they do, they'll go into a frenzy and attempt to kill everything, regardless if it's an ally or enemy. This state will leave them weakened severely however. The first shape-shifting ability depends on the Grimi's family line. If a Grimi has ancestors that shapeshift into a lion, it will most likely be a lion too. There are some exceptions.
    Grimis can also fly - they have wings that fade. The wings seem to be made of pure energy, and appear to be insubstantial. Not all of them might be able to master this art of flying properly however. Only the ones who have a talent with magic become the greatest of flyers.

    Appearance: Grimis look somewhat like humans, but have a more graceful, taller form. Their eyes are slitted, like those of a cat, and they have a furry tail, and furry feline-like ears instead of human ears. Their nails resemble talons - they're pointy and sharp.
    Their hair colour varies and it can be any colour of human hair, but most have brown or black hair. There are some with silver hair, but that is quite rare.
    Their eye colour can be just about any - varying from crystal blue to darkbrown. The colour brown and amber is the most common.

    A bit of cultural info (Thought it would be interesting):

    Grimis live in clustered villages and hamlets wherever there are good conditions for hunting and trade. Some do break away from the traditional lifestyle and adapt to life in larger cities.

    Ritual of Choosing: This ritual is performed when a Grimi, regardless of his/hers gender reaches the age of seventy. [Remember, they age 10x slower than humans.] During this ritual, it is found out whether the child has a talent for arts, hunting, magic, etc. This helps the child decide which path they will take, or which talent will they train upon.

    As a custom, every immediate family member of the child will dress in white to be recognized for special occasion. During this time, the family of the child will hold a feast and the whole village will assemble to celebrate.

    Little extra information: A Grimi can strenghten its natural talent by wearing their birthstone around their neck. Sometimes, their eye color will match their birthstone.

    Spirit Humans

    Classification: 1/2 Spirit, 1/2 Human

    Class Preference: Usually excellent warriors, but most Spirit Humans are mages of some sort.

    Weapon Preference: A one-handed sword, or a staff.

    Information: Spirit Humans are almost extinct, due to the fact that the clans have been at war for almost thrity-thousand years. Spirit Humans live in the mountainous regions of the North, or the easten deserts. They will live anywhere that is sparsely populated. They are usually not very warlike, but almost half of the clans have been corrupted by an unknown Undead Mage. THe only clan not corrupted is the Haselurg Clan, which lives in the mountains of the north. They number about five-thousand. Spirit Humans can live indefinetly, but the average is about fifty-thousand. They reproduce every thousand years.

    Abilities: Spirit Humans have the amazing ability to teleport without much effort, only the greatest magi can also teleport without much effort. Spirit Humans also can read the minds of the people surrounding them, easily penetrating the resistance that some may give. Spirit Humans can also make exceptional weapons, the most powerful weapons placed deep within the mountains.

    Appearance: Sprirt Humans look like a normal human, except transparent.

    Natural Allies: Spirit Humans are natural allies of the High Elves, and Night Elves

    Natural Enemies: Spirit Humans hate greedy racwes, such as all species of Dwarves, and all evil races.

    Great Monuments: The Vaults of the Deep. It is made with pure Diamonite, the greatest magical rock known to all life. It is rumored that within these vaults is the book of Life.

    Halflings Races

    Hobbit -- 100
    What we all know from the Lord of the Rings. These miniscule Halflings love to have a good time -- and to eat. They tend to prefer to stay put and to be Bards. They, however, can be anything and use any small weapon. Hobits rely on luck more than strength.

    -- 200
    I can't rember their names... But they live in the forest as opposed to the hills (as Hobits do). They are basically the same, but just live longer and are a bit taller.

    Kender - often mistaken for elven children due to their small height (3 1/2 to 4 1/2 feet) and pointed ears, most people grab their money sack in fear when they notice a kender's characteristic wrinkles and outlandish clothing. Kender are consumate thieves - though most get quite offended if this is suggested. Kender simply have little grasp on the concept of personal property, and are naturally good at picking locks and pockets ("Here, you must have dropped this", or "Ooops, this door seems stuck!").
    Kender are biologically immune to fear. This is good; they never run in panic. This is bad; they never run in panic. Many a kender has stood its ground against a charging dragon, giant, or the like, thinking "Gee, he looks mad...."
    A kender has a similar lifespan to a human. They have limited infravision. At the onset of adolescence, kender become infected with a condition known as 'Wandelust', forcing them to travel the world. Due to their boldness, there are few old kender.
    Kender can be thieves, clerics, and thief combinations. They are perhaps more agile than elves but weak physically In Audalis, kender also suffer -1 to intelligence and wisdom.

    ICE DEMONS
    Classification: intelligent beasts.
    Weapon preference: swords or giant hammers.
    Class preference: warrior, guard, commoner, wanderer. Chilled (children are very weak and cant handle weapons easy but however they are very fast)
    Information: usually live in mountains around Alaska or any other cold parts of the world. Not very advanced but they can still build structures. When they get older there arms get much bigger so they can fight better but they get much slower. They aren’t very good friends with any other kind of race’s.



    FIRE DEMONS
    Classification: demon
    Weapon preference: long blades (can be as long as 15 feet)
    Class preference: skilled swordsmen, commoner, wanderer, god.
    Information: live by volcanoes in the hottest places in the world. They take on many traits of humans but are a pure demon race. Much more advanced then other types of demons.



    WILD DEMONS
    Classification: beast
    Weapon preference: anything they can just put together from things they would find around, like sticks and rocks.
    Class preference: hunter, fighter.
    Information: not much to say about these guys. They are very lowly advanced and base their life on 2 things, getting food to feed their clan, and staying alive.

    I, bamthedoc, will be looking up some more demon races later.
    What to come:
    Half-Demon
    Lesser Demon
    Greater Demon
    Lesser Daemon
    Greater Daemon

    Water Demon
    Classification: Magical Creature
    Weapon Preferance: Claws, Staffs, Wings {can use any}
    Class Preferance: Mage, Illustionists, Battlemage {can be any}
    Information: All Water Demons can control basic water-spells from birth. All have magical abilities, no mater what path they travel. They tend to be fast and difficult to hit, though the are comperably weak physically. They tend to live in swamps and any other waterway that is considered nasty or polluted.

    Forest Demon
    Classification: Defilers
    Weapon Preferance: Bows and Blades
    Class Preferance: Defiled Druid, Defiled Hunter, Defiled Ranger
    Information: Forest Demons can only be three classes, and all three are unique to them. The classes copy the "non" Defiled counterpart in skills, but tend to be more destructive and "anti-nature". They are fierce and love naught but destruction. They tend to live underground, especially where there are rotting roots and flora.

    Wind Demon
    Classification: Winged Beast
    Weapon Preferance: Fan (yes, they like 'em), Blades, Bows
    Class Preferance: Mage, Battlemage, Swordman
    Information: A foul air follows most Wind Demons. They can all fly, and that is a dangerous proposition to fight against. They are very weak, physically, however. They can live anywhere there is a miasma -- which they also can use as a weapon. What they spew out as an attack is weaker, by comparison, but does have a chance to poison an opponent.

    Archangel AKA the Saint and Deathclaw

    EDITIFIED for better use

    Race: Archangel
    Classification: Template
    ~~Race 1: Any
    ~~Race 2: Celestial of some sort
    Class preferance: Cleric
    Weapon Preferance: Staff, Fists, Wings, Longsword
    The ?saint? is a celestial. One cannot be summoned like a celestial. It takes on the form of a normal creature, usually from the material plane, but is not half-celestial; nor is it a celestial creature. A saint, or (more appropriately) archangel, is a normal creature that has somehow attained the characteristics of some of the highest-ranking celestials themselves. They have the benevolence of a heavenly creature, but are attached to their home plane like any other native. How one becomes an archangel remains a mystery. Some believe archangels are duplicates of normal creatures from celestia itself.

    abilities:
    Angelic Touch: Wide variety of effects including healing and warmth
    Flight: duh...
    Divine Spells: IM/PM me for a list
    Greater versatility in combat: you can fight with ranged as well as melee weapons with exactly the same skill, and much better than before
    uh, there might be more, but i'm not exactly sure

    Race: Deathclaw
    Classification: Beast
    ~~Race 1: Deathclaw
    ~~Race 2: None
    Class preferance: Ranger, Barbarian or Druid (depending on gender)
    Weapon Preferance: Claws, Horns, Teeth, Tail

    It should be fully understood that any PC that is a Deathclaw must be an Intelligent Deathclaw. Lesser Deathclaws do not possess the sentience to think beyond their basic instincts, let alone accept a player class.

    A Deathclaw?s natural weapons count as +5 weapons when determining damage reduction, automatically cutting through all forms of it.

    Deathclaws only use light armor in the rare instances that one decides to actually wear armor at all, as light armor does the least to interfere with their natural dexterity.

    Deathclaws cannot handle any weapons.

    Due to the chaos running rampant through the realms following the Time of Troubles, the very fabric of space and time separating the different dimensions has been affected, opening holes between this world and countless others; the Deathclaw is a creature that migrated here from one of these worlds. They resemble huge bipedal lizards with massive claws on their forelegs, small but sharp horns on their foreheads, and large mouths full of razor sharp teeth. Little is known about these creatures, only that they are fiercely territorial, protective of their young, and cunning hunters. Rumors persist of intelligent, ?civilized? deathclaws out in the wilderness, though few are willing enough to actively seek them out, and the few that have made contact respect the solitude of these isolated groups and do not disclose their locations to those who would actively seek their destruction.

    There are two different types of Deathclaws: Intelligent Deathclaws and Lesser Deathclaws.

    The rare ?tribes? of intelligent Deathclaws (as they have come to be known) are quite different from their savage cousions. Intelligent Deathclaws often take character classes, with the Alpha females often becoming Druids (being wiser and more intelligent than the rest, most often) and the Alpha males becoming Barbarians (their natural brute strength and cunning making them a much bigger threat than their lesser counterparts). The lower members of the pack most often are Warriors or Fighters, though quite a few of the more capable ones become Rangers. The idea sounds preposterous, but there are still a few who claim to have met up with Deathclaw Sorcerers...

    Intelligent Deathclaws speak Common and a crude variation of Draconic. Sometimes the more scholarly ones will pick up other languages from the few brave souls that visit their tribes.

    When alone, Deathclaws are never afraid to wade into the thick of battle, tearing into enemies with their claws and fangs. As a pack, the adults fight individually, while the juveniles surround and overwhelm one target at a time.

    Intelligent Deathclaws, though capable of higher thinking and strategy, see little to gain in altering a natural formula that works nearly all the time. Though they prefer to work things out peacefully (even the more aggressive males), they will not shirk from a fight if that is the only solution. The only difference is that the juveniles only attack when the odds are against the adults alone, and until the situation becomes such, they stay clustered together away from the fighting. Also, the Alpha female, if a Druid, will oftentimes stay back by the young and cast spells from a distance to keep enemies at bay; should enemies come too close, the females let loose with their claws and teeth.

    If a Deathclaw hits with both claws, it may latch on to an enemy and make bite attacks with a better chance to hit.

    Deathclaws may charge an enemy with their horns. If the enemy is two or more sizes smaller than the Deathclaw, it may also trample them.

    A place where there is no dark
    Race: Broken Eternal or Flawed Immortal
    Classification: Humanoid~restricted~ ritual
    ~~Race 1: Any humanoid
    ~~Race 2: special *

    Weapon preferance: no weapons
    Class Preference: None at all

    Flawed Immortals (example is my character Yemeth) can have no end. Death is no longer their friend. They spend their entire existence tryign to die after a short time of enjoying life. Mosy Flawed Immortals have wounds that never heal, only scar. They can get killed time and time again, and will only return to life. The cost of this is high. Each time a Flawed Immortal dies, a little bit of their memory dies with them, but this is not all. In their place the soul of someone they know is taken and twisted into a shadow and sent to the negative material plane, and their mortal shell dies.
    The only way to attain Immortal status is to literally have your mortalit removed through a ritual. Most times your frred mortality goes phsycho and kills people.

    Race: True Immortal
    Classification: Unique
    ~~Race 1: Any
    ~~Race 2: SpecialWeapon preferance: Same as base race (most times none at all though)
    Class Preference: Immortal (unattainable except by this race)

    True immortals are created through much the same way as a Flawed immortal, save the fact that their ritual is not flawed in any way at all, or they are born immortal. Once a True immortal becomes as such, normally they can never die, save by special circumstances. In the world today, there is no one left that can perform the ritual correctly though. This Race is restricted to all Rp'ers

    Template: Symbiotic Relationship
    Classification: Symbiotic relationship
    ~~Race 1: Any [base creature]
    ~~Race 2: SymbioteWeapon Preference: Same as base
    Class Preference: Same as Base
    Symbiotic relationships are formed when a symbiote inhabits a host. This can range anywhere from a parasitic virus to a malignant ooze, to something helpful. The Symbiote gives the host certain things in return for nutrition from the host. These things can include the following:
    Regeneration
    Acute Senses
    Increased Physical/Mental Strength

    Some symbitoes have a negative effect upon their host, including a drain on their physical beauty all the way up to eventual death. Take on a symbiote with caution!

    Race: Avatar Of Immortaled Steel
    Classification: Construct
    Weapon Preference: None
    Class Preference: Fighter

    This race is an odd one, made from pure metal, and requiring no food, drink, or sleep, it can go on killing rampages for days. Most of these Avatars never even come in contact with magic, though some spellcasters have been known to exist. Healing magics are useless against an Avatar of steel, and it can only heal by absorbing metal ore. Most avatars form weapons from their body parts.

    Race: Living Vampire
    Classification: Template
    ~~Race 1: Any humanoid
    ~~Race 2: Living Vampire

    Requirements:
    Special: Must have been biten by a Vampire, and had some of his blood deposited back into you

    Weapon preferance: Same as Base
    Class Preference: Same as Base

    Living Vampires are much like their undead cousins, save for the fact that they are not truely dead. They gain many Vampire abilities, while only loosing a bit from their everyday life!

    They gain the following spells: (dependant on strength of character)
    Mage Hand at will (5 lbs. / level)
    Spider Climb 3 / day
    Darkness 3 / day
    Fly (1.5 times normal speed with perfect maneuverability)
    Improved Invisibility
    Teleport 3 / day
    Disintegrate 3 / day
    Finger of Death
    Mass Charm 3 / day
    Energy Drain

    A vampire has detect thoughts, telepathy, and true seeing as the spells, as innate abilities.

    Domination (Su): A living vampire has the Domination ability to influence others
    Blood Drain (Ex): A living vampire can frain the blood of his victim to gain health
    Create Spawn (Su): A living vampire can create other vampires through draining their blood.
    Transfusion (Ex): A Living Vampire can use the Transfusion ability rather than Create Spawn. The vampire puts some of his blood back into the body of his victim. Doing so drains the vampire of any health he gained from that victim, and the victim becomes a living vampire instead, at full health. The vampire cannot use this ability more than one minute after his dead. A vampire can turn an undead vampire or vampire spawn into a living vampire by allowing them to drain him of some of his blood. A living vampire has no master.
    Metabolism Control (Ex): Vampires have an unlimited life span, do not age, but are alive, so their bodies still grow. Cutting off their hair or nails would only cause them to regenerate, so vampires have control over the growth of their anatomy. Living Vampires can freely change the length of his nails, hair, and/or canine teeth. They often use this ability to hide their claws and fangs until they’re ready to strike a victim and expose what they really are. The vampire can also stop breathing, make their hearts stop, etc.
    Strength Bonus (Su): A living Vampire can call upon his Vampiric nature to incease his strength for a short time, no more than 3/day

    Special Qualities:
    A vampire retains all the special qualities of the base creature and those listed below and powers similar to the undead type (see below).
    Super Immortality (Ex): The living vampire has no maximum age. He takes no penalties for aging, and any penalties he once had are negated. If a living vampire chooses to do so, he may store his soul in a magical item like a lich does, and will be revived in a couple days if killed. If that if the item is destroyed, it does not kill him. He is now simply more vulnerable to death.
    Speed Enhancement (Ex): A living vampires is extremely fast
    Scent (Ex): Vampires can use the scent ability to track, and are really good with chemicals.
    Darkvision (Ex): Living Vampires can see in utter darkness (natural) with a range of 60 ft.
    Low-Light Vision (Ex): Living Vampires can see when there is only limited light.
    Damage Reduction (Su): A living vampire takes less damage from every attack.
    Fast Healing (Ex): A living vampire heals extremely fast
    Regeneration (Ex): A vampire has regeneration equal to his constitution score (max 20). A lost appendage regenerates after approximately one minute. Damage dealt to vampires by fire ignores regeneration.
    Immunity (Ex): Vampires are immune to cold, electricity, and sonic damage.
    Resistance (Ex): Vampires have fire and acid resistance.
    Undead Characteristics (Ex): Living vampires are immune to poison, sleep, paralysis, stunning, disease, death effects, death from massive damage, and necromantic effects. They are, however, still subject to mind-influencing effects.

    A vampire can fight blindly and is never caught unawares.

    A Vampire has greatly increased strength, dexterity, and charisma. They also gain a small bit of knowledge and wisdom.

    VAMPIRE WEAKNESSES
    For all their power, vampires have one weakness. This is known as light weakness.

    Light Weakness: To a vampire’s powers, sunlight is like an anti-magic field. A vampire that stays in sunlight for more than 10 seconds loses all spell-like and supernatural abilities from being a vampire as if they were in an anti-magic field. They also lose any temporary health they had from draining blood. All of the vampire’s abilities come back when the vampire returns to darkness, except his temporary health, which can only be regained by taking more victims.

    Vamipres can NEVER be Druids, Paladins, or Monks.
    Vampires excell as mages and fighters

    Goa'ould
    Classification: Parasitic Template
    ~~Race 1: Goa'ould Larva or Elder
    ~~Race 2: Human (preferance) or Any
    Weapon Preferance: Depends (see below)
    Classes Available: System Lord, Queen, Toc'ra, First Prime, Prime, Jafa
    Information: Depends (see below)

    System Lords and Queens
    Race 2 can only be human.
    Weapon Preferance: Personal Sheild, Ring Weapon, Hidden Wrist Dagger
    Information: System Lords are male, and Queens are female. System Lords rule over their subjects as if they were gods, and dictate that they only be refered to as a god. They have one first prime, one queen, and a world of Jafa. The Queens are also reveared as gods. They are, however, most used for breading of new Goa'ould larva. They also completely rule over their host. They even go so far as to say that nothing of the host survives. Only Elder Goa'ould can take a host. System Lords and Queens live for millenia. Hosts are taken at as young an age as possible, many in their teens. A System Lord or Queen can be told appart from their underlings by the glow in their eyes.
    WARNING: YOU CANNOT CHOOSE THIS CLASS!!

    First Prime and Primes
    Weapon Preferance: Staff Weapon, Zadnikito (Zadgun)
    Information: First Primes are the commanders of their god's armies. They are branded with a golden medalian upon their forhead of their god's individual symbol. Primes are given a silver medalian, and each First Prime has one Prime per ship in their god's army. First Primes and Primes are the only members of a System Lord's army permited to wear the full armor, including the helmet shaped as the god's animal representation (i.e. Ra had the eagle helmet). First Primes and Primes retain their indivituality as their Goa'ould Larva is in the same condition as Jafa's. First Primes and Primes live as long as 400 years. None are younger than 100 years of age.

    Jafa
    Weapon Preferance: Staff Weapon
    Information: Jafa are slaves to the System Lords, and they cannot escape even if they wished to. Jafa must have a Goa'ould Larva in there gut, as their immune system has been removed. Jafa must take Goa'ould Larva when they are young in order to survive. Jafa can live as long as First Primes and Primes.

    Toc'ra
    Weapon Preferance: Anything
    Information: Toc'ra are against Ra and the System Lords. They do not force humans to become hosts, so their numbers often dwindle. Toc'ra prove that the host does survive as the host can speak for themselves. You can tell who is talking, be it the Goa'ould or host, by watching their eyes. When the Goa'ould speaks, the eyes glow and the voice is distorted (echo effect). The host has his or her normal voice.


    NOTE ABOUT GOA'OULD!!
    These symbiotes prefer to take a host of the same sex. In Jafa, it doesn't matter. All First Primes and Primes are male, and most Jafa are male as many females are killed for "inferiority" in battle conditions. Only enough female Jafa are kept alive to breed more Jafa.

The will of the hive drives all Reploids.
