Battlelords Races

The challenge to Battlelords of the Twenty-Third Century is playing an alien whose mindset is completely different from anything you are used to playing. It is the interaction of these races, in a hostile environment, that most people find to be the biggest draw.

We've got a race for everyone to play: from the Eridani, with their strict code of honor, to the fun loving Orion, to the huge but dimwitted Ram Python who's favorite saying is "If it moves, kill it. If it doesn't move, pick it up and kill it." Some races wield matrix powers, like the Mutzachans, allowing them to affect the fabric of time and space. Each race is deep with history and culture, so you can climb into the mind of an alien.

Each race has 4+ pages of deep material to give you everything you need to create a character that is a complete individual. The highly popular Fickle Finger of Fate (FFoF) and I Was Just Growing Up (IWJGU) tables will guarantee no two characters are ever the same. Sci-fi is not sci-fi without aliens, and our aliens are not just blue Humans.

Each race has it's own generalization about the others, and getting along with each other is often a difficult challenge.

This is real sci-fi, why play Humans?
