Advanced Races Poll for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game

Imperial GhoulAs the Advanced Races Compendium Kickstarter draws closer, we’re looking to add some new races to the ones we’ve already covered for PFRPG. Some chapters of the Compendium will be all-new, some chapters will cover familiar races in new ways, and we are also fleshing out the existing Advanced Races with new magic, feats, lore, and updates.

Which fantasy races would you like to see covered as PC options in the Advanced Races Compendium?

  1. I would have voted “other” for Kasatha, but I’m not sure they are OGL, and I don’t think they are popular enough to waste a vote on.

    Instead, I voted “insect race” because that sounds like an approximation, and insect races are tied for 2nd.

  2. Trollkin are a unique, Midgard race, as far as I know. As much as I’d love to see any and all of the above races included in the Compendium, the trollkin needs to be fleshed out.

  3. I’m going to throw out a couple Other choices: skindancers (from Wayfinder #7) and Midgard’s own morphoi (from Journey’s to the West). Although I’m personally biased toward the skindancers, I think both fit a thematic niche, for both players and GMs, currently unfilled by the additional choices listed in the poll.

    Just my 2cps, anyway. :)

  4. Insect races, specifically thri-kreen. But i would like to see them as a hostile, alchemical race — not one that would be a PC unless it was heavily influenced in its back story.

  5. Ratfolk. I know they’re not really Midgard, as far as I know, but I have a great deal of love for the little guys.



    That said, I’d love sahaugin, morphoi would be interesting, and I’ve always had a love/fear relationship with thri-kreen. I think they’d be a tough nut to crack.

  7. I agree with everyone else that minotaurs should get priority. They are a longstanding mythological and fantasy race and a lot of people would like to play them. In the Midgard Campaign Setting, they seem a little bit too limited: 4 Strength, −4 Dexterity, +2 Constitution, −2 Intelligence, −4 Charisma. Those aren’t very appealing stats to anyone wishing to role up a minotaur character. The minotaurs in Little Red Goblin Game’s “Odyssey: a Greek Sourcebook for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game” game +2 strength and wisdom, and -2 int. When I ran a Baphomet-centric campaign (also a Labyrinth crossover; Jennifer Connelly was an NPC but that’s a different story) I ended up phasing on the former in favor of the latter. Hopefully, when minotaurs are revamped, their stats will be a bit more balanced and less extreme. :)
