Hey

I am making my own Anima World and thinking about creating my own races.

The first is inspired by Ungors from Warhammer Fantasy

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440031a&prodId=prod460010a

 

Culture:

Their culture is based on knowledge, and to study or explore is the highest goal in life.

 

Stats:

Natural Weapon Horn: Beastmen have the ability to attack with their horns. They are Natural weapons with a base damage of 40.

 

To study is to live: Select a knowledge skill at character creation, that skills DP cost is reduced by 1 to a minimum a 1.

 

Fast Hooves: +1 to base movement.

 

XP cost: -2 (maybe -3 I am not sure about it)

 

I will probably post the other races tomorrow (they still need a bit of work)

Is this a Nephlim, or a full race?

It doesn't seem like a fully formed race to me. Most races would have quite a few more powers, and a Level modifier based on the extent/cost of those powers. Instead of creating a new race, you could take the Aptitude in a Subject and Blood of the Great Beasts Advantages instead. For examples of homebrewed races, check out this thread: http://community.fan...mebrewed-races/

I'm looking forward to Gaia 2: Beyond the Mirror, which apparently will have new races available for players.  :)  It should be coming out in Spanish next month - we'll see when it gets translated and released here.

translated for not hispanophone, sorry for my mistakes neither english nor spanish are my mother language

 

What would we see looking behind the mirror?
What would we understand knowing how to open the eyes?

I often ask myself these questions, and as ever, I still can not answer.
That day, seven hundred years ago, we lost our world for the second time and henceforth we wonder without direction, as lost children, roaming in a mere fragment of what we once had and that in our arrogance we called as our.

There was a time in which the world was nothing more than a frail dream.
And as always happens...
in the end the time of waking up has come.


Welcome to Gaia

Enter in Eurakia and the intereigns, worlds full of adventures, secrets and intrigues that await to be disclosed. Dive in a land of adventures and fantasy where the man live with the most incredible creatures without knowing it.

Gaya: beyond the mirror is the second Anima's campaign setting, a book written to join together the most famous eastern fantasy sagas and the classical role playing game spirit. In the book you'll find all of this and much more:

A new world to discover: a whole continent and all of Gaia most important islands are described in detail for you to know the geography, the cities and inhabitants lifestyles. A colour map of all Eurakia and another one of its nations are included.
The intereigns: A detailed approach to the in-between worlds that are over the human kingdoms. All the outstanding historical and lifestyle aspects are described as well as the distinctive features.
Other Gaia Tales: A compilation of histories and tales that relate some of the most important events of Eurakia, as well as a lot of the events that happened in the last centuries without mankind knowing it.
Religion: Explore the new continent myths and mores, from the traditional cult of  seasons to the horrific cult of the Abyss Old Gods.
And much more: find new organisations and forgotten races, as the Dragon Sons or the Turak, Gaia economy working or the cultures of  those who walked with the human race.

Thank you Pelmir!

 

This is wonderful news. Probably Gaia 2 was the Anima rulebook I most longed for. New organizations, religions and Races...lots of stuff even not considered that finally we have details regarding the New Continent oh...and even the Intereigns!

 

Can't wait for this!

I give two thumbs up for Gaia 2!  I enjoyed reading the first guide.  They did a great job of presenting their world.  There were lots of campaign ideas in there as well as some personalities to work with.  I look forward to its release.
