Alien Anthology Sourcebook

This file consists of conversions taken from the Alien Anthology supplement for the d20 Star Wars Roleplaying Game.

- Brief Supplement Overview -

This supplement presents a slew of alien creatures and species for inclusion in any Star Wars campaign. Although I caught a couple of typos here and there, the quality of the writing is good, and the information presented is interesting. The interior art is of good quality, giving the reader an idea of how the creatures and aliens are supposed to look. The art also includes some photographs.

As far as new material is concerned, I've converted 19 creatures and 23 aliens from those presented. The remaining entries have been printed in previous D6 supplements (noted in the Existing Material References). There are some new tidbits worth reading, and the new creatures and alien species will work well in most campaigns. There is some information specific to the d20 rules included, such as three prestige classes and information on creating and customizing creatures. Some of this information could be carried over into D6, and might give GMs some good ideas.

The book is perfect-bound, the binding and paper are good quality, and is 127 pages in length. The cover is glossy, and the interior illustrations and photographs are all presented in full color. I like the book quite a bit, but as with other d20 Star Wars products, it's a tad expensive ($26.95). I got mine for $18.86 on Amazon.com, which is a pretty good savings (and about what I'd expect to pay for the book normally).

Should you buy it? My initial impression is that it's a nice book to have, though you'll probably be fine without it if you have access to GG#4, GG#12, or Alien Encounters. If you want to present your players with some interesting new alien species, or just want to terrify them with some nasty creatures, then you'll probably want to pick this book up.

Anyone struck by nerf spittle suffers a penalty of -1D to actions involving personal interaction until washed and the offending article(s) of clothing are removed.

Strength 4D+1
Special Abilities:

Sand Tick (AA, page 42)
Dexterity 7D+1
Perception 1D+2
hide 5D+2
search 3D
Strength 0D+1
climbing/jumping 4D+2
Special Abilities:
Disease: The bite of the sand tick exposes the victim to crazed bantha fever. A bitten character must succeed at a Difficult Strength check, or come down with the disease after 1d6 days. After the incubation period has passed, victims lose one pip each from Knowledge and Perception, and this loss is continuous unless the victim is treated. Lost pips return at a rate of one per day per attribute once the disease has been cured. Characters who are reduced below 1D in an attribute by the disease, but who are later cured, lose 1D permanently from the attribute in question. Characters whose attributes drop to 0D expire.
Numbing Bite: Sand ticks numb a potential host with secretions in their saliva before attaching themselves. A Very Difficult Perception check is required to feel the bite. Characters with one or more attached ticks take 1 point of damage per tick per day (roll Strength versus the total damage each day to determine wounds, with a Stun result indicating no effect).

Move: 6
Size: Fist-sized.
Note: The Dexterity score of the sand tick seems, at best, excessive. This being a direct conversion, I've chosen to leave the original amount in the entry. I would suggest reducing the tick's Dexterity to a maximum of 2D+2 (half of 7D+1).

Feeding Frenzy: When within 2 meters of a slashrat emitting killscent (see entry in AA, page 43), other slashrats are driven into a feeding frenzy. Frenzied slashrats feed on any living or dead creature they can find. Slashrats in a frenzy have their Strength scores increased to 3D, but have their Dexterity reduced to 3D+2. A frenzy generally lasts six rounds.
Scent: Slashrats gain a +2D bonus to track prey when scent is an issue, and gain a +2D bonus to Perception checks that involve their sense of smell.

Special Abilities:
Heat Dissipation: Dashade can dissipate the heat that emanates from their bodies, making it difficult to detect them with equipment that tracks by heat. All checks made to detect a Dashade character who is consciously reducing his heat signature, using thermal or infrared equipment, are made at a -2D penalty.

Special Abilities:
Energy Drain: Hoojibs can drain energy from any piece of equipment, or any being that contains energy of any sort. If the Hoojib is in contact with the energy source, the effects are automatic. A Hoojib can attempt to drain energy from an object or being within 4 meters, but must make a Strength check in order to do so depending on the distance (range: 1-2/3/4). Treat this just like a ranged attack. A Hoojib can drain 1D3 shots or hours of use from equipment, droids, power packs, or other inanimate objects per round.
Telepathy: Hoojibs can communicate telepathically with any number of beings within a 500 meter distance. Anyone wishing to resist the communication can resist by rolling Willpower or Control against the Hoojib's Perception attribute. Telepathic communication from a Hoojib is "heard" by the target being in his own language.

Story Factors:
Precognition: All Iktotchi have a limited form of precognition. Most Iktotchi are unable to control when these visions manifest, and generally receive them as vivid dreams or daydreams. Iktotchi who are Force sensitive and who possess the Farseeing force power gain a +3D bonus on both Control and Sense rolls when using that power.

Story Factors:
Primitive: Because they are a primitive species, beginning Lahsbee/Huhk characters may not place any skill dice in any vehicle operations, starship operations, or repair skills.
Transformation: Huhks are Lahsbees who are fully mature. This change comes about at puberty, but can also manifest under extreme stress or strong physical sensations of pleasure or pain. A Lahsbee character who has transformed into a Huhk must subtract 1D from his Dexterity score, and add 1D to his Strength score. Additionally, the character's Move score is increased by 4 points.
Move: 6/8 (Lahsbee), 10/12 (Huhk)

Intimidating Bellow: Mantellian Savrips gain a +2D+2 bonus to their Intimidation skill checks when bellowing.
Keen Sight and Hearing: Mantellian Savrips gain a +2D bonus to Perception checks to notice things that involve either sight or hearing.
Low Light Vision: Mantellian Savrips can see twice as far as a normal human in poor lighting conditions.
Poison: Savrips inject a paralytic poison with their bite. Anyone successfully bitten by a Mantellian Savrip must make a Difficult Strength check. Failure indicates that they take poison damage equal to the Savrip's Str+1D+1, and are paralyzed and unable to move for 4D6 rounds.
Reach: Due to the Mantellian Savrip's extended reach, Savrip characters can attack targets up to 4 meters away with their claws.
Story Factors:
Primitive: Because they are a primitive species, beginning Mantellian Savrip characters may not place any skill dice in any vehicle operations, starship operations, or repair skills. Savrip characters who are primitive gain a +2D+2 bonus to Survival skill checks, and a +2 bonus on Sneak skill checks. Upon learning any technical skills, however, the Savrip is considered to have been "civilized." Civilizing a Savrip results in a loss of the Sneak skill bonus, and a reduction of the Survival bonus to +1D+1.
Move: 12/14
Size: Up to 4 meters tall.
Note: Savrips don't seem to be intended as a player species, and rightly so. GMs can, at their option, allow players to portray Savrips, and may God have mercy on them.
