Wiki Sci-fi Roleplay Races Page

Back to WSFR Application Page

The basic rule: be creative.
There are any number of characters you can create...purple skin, fangs, fur, horns coming out of their scaly butts, etc. etc. Your only limitation is your own imagination, and you don't have to use any race on this page. These are just a few suggestions, a jumping-off point.

If you want to post a new race, go right ahead, following the format set by the others. If you want a lot of info and long description (i.e., longer than any already here), post a short description here, and then create a new page in this format:

<b>Race name here</b>

All contributions are appreciated. Thank you!

Humans: The majority (though maybe not all) of you are familiar with this odd little species. Humans tend to be motivated, fickle, hasty, and innovative.

Robot: A completely mechanical creature. No biological components. If you're using a robot character, you must tell us the extend of its AI (Artificial Intelligence). i.e., Can it reason logically, if a situation isn't preprogrammed? Does it feel emotion? How much data does it have access to? (How smart is it?)

Android: Very much like a robot, but created with biological components. These creatures are much more likely to experience emotion than are robots.

Cyborgs: A cyborg is a bionic human. (Or...bionic other creature, for the purpose of fantasy games.) That is, it started as a human base that was modified by cybernetics and other technologies into something smarter, stronger, faster...or maybe just more mechanical. Cyborgs are typically the most likely of the three animatrons (robots, androids, cyborgs) to feel emotion.

Sytherian: This reptilian race features scaled humanoids with long, powerful tails. They vary in colour and have claws on basically human hands. Their feet, legs, and gait, on the other hand, are distinctly reptilian. They have slit pupils in eyes of varying colour, and usually black hair with very high hairlines. Shifters (see Sci-Fi Ranks Page) are quite common in this race, at a ratio of about one of every three Sytherians having this ability. These creatures are often very cold and calculating, prefering logic over emotion.

Rnar'gnayim or Nayim:
This six-limbed race can move on either two feet or more, depending on preference and situation. Relatively weak physically, these creatures are keenly intelligent despite an apparent inability to speak English, for which purpose they use translators. This race is known for its advanced robotics.

Serinian: This feline race is both furless and tail-less. They're more lightly built than humans, and rely on accelerated speed and agility in absence of strength. Their most distinctive features are their slit pupils, very large ears, and two-toned skin. They can move as either bipeds or quadrapeds.

Ylilk, Alien/Goa'uld hybrid: a mix of Gigeran adult stage alien, and an infector/breeder, using a Goa'uld drone that can mature into certain forms of alien stages and mentally control its host, under the infector's superintention. See more on Ylilk.

Creeti: A race of fearless, battlehungry predators, grown up in a Creeti-hive, the most harsh condition imaginable for an infant. They're ready to show how it toughened them and their Hunters are eager to show they superiority to the other races, their Warriors are keen to conquer new lands and their Sages are happy to help them get there. Using only their natural weapons, razor sharp teeth and many wicked claws, in melee combat, using no guns whatsoever, they have a reputation of being bloodythirsty berserkers throughout the galaxy.

For Future Fantasy Fiction:
The typical fantasy races, including wise, noble elves, hardworking dwarves, cruel and calculating drows, patient and fatalistic centaurs, and most any other races you've ever played are all welcome here. Just make sure that your character is made appropriate to a modern or future setting. FUTURE FANTASY GENRE ONLY, also see WFR Char RACE Page.

See the WFR Species Page for more ideas. This page is here to specifically address Sci-fi issues.

2004-05-17 [xido]: nice work...and the Sytherian is a nice concept.....strikingly similar to an inhabitor of Nibiru, the hypothetical reptilian Nephilim of the tenth planet of the Solar system....

2004-05-17 [Nightshadow]: Never heard of either. So that's what you've been babbling about in your mood.

2004-05-18 [xido]: uh huh.....conspiracy theory stuff, really.....well, galactic conspiracy theory.......*shrugs* I like the premise. My friend says that she believes that Nibiru is not a physical planet, but a state of consciousness that takes the form of a great planet of reptilians that once came to earth to help create the human race.... It's an odd thought, but it has its basis in the same texts that started the bible...the early hebrew texts of Enoch, 1 and 2

2004-05-18 [xido]: do a google search on Nefilim or Nephilim, and you'll find some creepy stuff. I have a feeling it has its basis in reality, and I've been seeing it ever since I was little.

2004-05-18 [Nightshadow]: Interesting. I'm not familiar with either of the latter...will have to read into the whole concept.
