Skull & Shackles (Mavrickindigo)
The following be a list of races ye can play when settin’ sail on yer path ter be the greatest scourge of the sea. Out of these, the following are some I think would be most interesting
*All Core Races
Aasimar : These be the children o’ celestials and mortals. Their beauty knows no bounds. Woe to those who think every aasimar be an angel. Ye are likely to face the fiercest devil on the sea.
Android : Androids be strange creatures come from a land far to the north. They aren’t the liveliest at parties, but their smarts more than make up fer it.
Catfolk : These felines usually enjoy travelin’ over the land, but sometimes they get over their natural fear of water to set sail.
Changeling : When a drunken sailor shacks up with a hag while at port, their offspring be these magical lasses.
Centaur : A strange mix of horse and man. They prefer the open plains to the open sea. But stranger creatures have sailed under the Jolly Roger in these shores.
Dhampir When a woman bears the child of the Vampire, they spawn these wretched, brooding creatures.
Drider Tai’nt natural what them Drow do to themselves in their abominable experiments. What was once a dour elf has become a dour elf with the legs (and maybe head, in the case of the men-folk) of a spider.
Drow : The dark elves live underground where they plan their evil plans. What use do they have to have a ship? Whatever it be, it can’t be good.
Elf These long-lived Scallywags are longer lived when they know what they’re doing. If one should become the pirate king, he would have ter watch his bed for many, many nights.
Fetclhings These wretches be creatures of darkness. Very good to have one among your crew, if ye can trust ‘em.
Gargoyle These creatures can appear to be statues, until the moment they want ter be seen.
Gathlain Fey be nothin’ but trouble, and these fey be the worst.
Ghoran These plant people offer their bodies ter feed their crew. A boon ter have when yer lost on the sea with nothing but flotsam and a pot o soil as company.
Gillman Low Azlanti, they call these fish men. I don’t trust ‘em, fer some say they still follow the orders o’ their ancient aboleth masters.
Gnome Small folk, good with illusion magic. Always seeking an adventure to stave away the grave.
Gnoll No laughing matter, these hyena folk are bestial and scary.
Goblin The vermin o’ the humanoids. Goblins are small, hate dogs, fear horses, and love fire. Though their shanties are strangely catchy.
Grippli Frog men of the jungle. They keep ter themselves and hardly bother none.
Halfling The little folk are half the size o’ normal people, and have twice the gumption to make up fer it. Usually looked down upon by the taller folk.
Half-Elf Many a night is spent between human and elf, and these children are the result o’ such meetin’s.
Half-Orc Orcs take “rape and pillage” ter a new level and many a bastard sets sail when “civilized” folk won’t take ‘em in.
Hobgoblin These militaristic monsters make better captains than their shorter kin.
Human The inner sea has many a race of human.
Kuru The Kuru be cannibals who live on one o’ the islands of the Shackles. They gain life by drinking the blood of others with their dreaded bites.x
Ifrit The offspring of elementals of fire and of humans, their tempers burn brighter than the sun.
Kasatha These strange islanders have four arms ter hold their cutlasses in!
Kitsune These fox people pretend ter be human and trick them out of gold or other things.
Kobolds They may be weak, but they be the best knot-tiers around!
Lashunta I don’t know much about the other planets, but these strangers be from one o’ them and they can speak with their minds.
Lizardfolk Havin’ a fine swimmer in the crew can be quite handy. Their teeth aren’t bad to have, neither.
Merfolk Many a sailor claims ter have seen one of these loverly creatures. Who would expect one to join a crew?
Nagaji These strange beings worship something known as “Nagas”
Monkey Goblin All the utility of a monkey, all the annoyance of a goblin!
Ogre These lumbering brutes be good for extra muscle, and not much else.
Orcs With a heart for battle, and a lust fer blood. Orcs make fearsome pirates
Oread What would a child of the plane o’ earth and a mortal be doin’ at our port?
Ratfolk These bilge-rats be good for swabbing the poop deck.
Samsaran Some people believe that when ye die, ye come back in another body. These people also believe theses Samasarans believe they did this many times.
Strix These winged humans seem to be not as nasty as they look.
Suli Humans are known fer sleepin’ around with anything. It’s only natural. Yet another half-breed are the Sulis, and their sires or mothers be Jann.
Svirfneblin Don’t ask me ter pronounce it, but these Deep Gnomes be as rare as they are hard ter pronounce.
Sylph Djinn and humans sometimes dance the oldest dance, and these are what pop out.
Syrinx Owl people from a faraway land, as evil as they come and think any man is their slave.
Tengu Unlike an albatross, Tengu are smart enough birds to serve on a crew, plus they can speak many tongues, making “trading” easier.
Tiefling Somewhere in their ancestry, these damned souls had a demon or a fiend as their sire, or some poor fool thought spending shore leave with a succubus was a fair idea.
Trox These beasts are all business all the time, can’t vibrate through walls, but they burrow underground.
Undine Of all the plane-touched, these creatures be the most sea-worthy, being the children of the sea ’erself.
Vanara Monkey men. All the ultility of a monkey, all the…you know the rest.
Vishkanya These maidens are said to have poisonous saliva and bodily fluids.
Wayang These strange folk from the plane of shadow are puppeteers of sorts.
Wyrwood Strange wooden men made by a strange origin.
Wyvaran These kobolds be descended by Wyverns.
