Bird-folk for Alien Orifice

January 5, 2015

Happy New Year! I have made a rash resolution, to wit: my Alien Orifice campaign (you know, the one I’ve been banging on about for two and a half years) will debut before the end of February 2015.

I have a folder full of notes and maps. It’s time to pull things together into playable form and set some PCs loose on Inanna to explore, fight and die horribly win treasure.

The inspirational sources for the campaign are three-fold, like so:

See if you can work out where these fellows fit in.

Bird-folk

Intelligent avian aliens, they resemble humanoid birds. They are intensely curious, and many become adventurers and soldiers of fortune like humans. Bird-folk have all the abilities of a robber (of a level equal to the creature’s Hit Dice), minus the climbing ability (they can fly). They communicate telepathically among themselves but not with outsiders. Since they do not speak, communication with non-bird-folk consists of elementary sign language. Lots of pointing, in other words.

HD 2 (base); AC 5 [14]; AT 1 weapon (by weapon); MV 6 (flying 18); AL N.
