House Rule: Asogians

(The following is a homebrew species write-up for Asogians in the D6 version of Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. Enjoy!)

Asogians are a humanoid species who have long been a part of the Galactic Republic. They typically have hairless brown or yellow skin, with long arms, very short legs, and necks that can be extended almost half a meter. Many Asogians are adept in the ways of the Force, and the philosophy of the Jedi is largely in accord with their peaceful, botanically-oriented culture.

Home Planet: Brodo Asogi
Attribute Dice: 11D

Special Abilities:
  • Inner Glow: Asogians can naturally produce light within their bodies, especially within their hearts and fingertips; these tend to glow whenever they feel strong positive emotions. This light is fairly dim, approximately the brightness of a small candle.
  • Telepathic Bond: Asogians have a natural affinity for telepathy, even apart from any skill they may have in the Force; when an Asogian uses Force powers that involve interacting with another person, treat all difficulty modifiers for relationship as one less. (Examples: acquaintances would have a +5 difficulty, friends would have +2, and close friends would have no added difficulty.)
Story Factors:
  • Love of Life: Most Asogians have a natural respect and affinity for living things, especially plants, and have been known to nurture and heal weak and dying ones. This attitude is similar to the Ithorians, but less extreme - an Asogian has no qualms about exploring and studying an environment as long as they feel safe doing so.
