Beastkine (A to Z Challenge, B)

2 April, 2016

One of the CatfolkTo quote from the original Sea of Stars pitch:

Beastkine– The Sundering had many strange effects, warping both man and beast, sometimes combining both.  This lead to the creation of new and bizarre races that had never been seen before.  Many of these young races died out but other have thrived.

Among the Beastkine are the Dogmen of Altacia, the Sisters of the Swan and the Catfolk of Felix Talis.

Since then, the Brave Folk, the Elkentribe and the Serpent Folk of Ypisara have been added to the world (and more may yet be discovered).

I have always had a place in my heart for anthropomorphic animal races, I think they are an interesting shorthand for playing up certain traits and archetypes so I have often incorporated them into my fantasy worlds and the Sea of Stars is no different.  Though they have not been heavily played, two of the Brave Folk and one of the Elkentribe as player characters, and one Catfolk as a re-occurring NPC, they are available for those who like them.

The artwork is by Xenorus Jrand owned by me.
