The head and limb size bothers me but what most throws me off is that there seems to be at least four different foot structures among the Ysoki, ranging from digitigrade rat feet all the way to just human feet in human boots, with a few intermediate bone structures in between those two.


^(Thinks of Pathfinder Human feat Racial Heritage) . . . Hey, you don't suppose Ysoki and Humans, uh . . . .


Every day. And Twice on Seventhday. I'm not sure about anyone coming of it though. Humans are freaks, but genetics is genetics.

Don't forget that this is a fantasy universe in which we have records of humans having children with a few dozen different races. I don't see them reproducing with ysokis that unlikely (though the child would probably be an ysoki or a human with slight touches of the other race rather than some gross hybrid).

Humanity's real superpower is to be the half in half-anything. It's rivaled only by dragons.


Yeah, Humans have canonically reproduced with Elves, Orcs, Vampires, Werebeasts, Hags, Deep Ones, and something like 21-22 different types of Outsiders (10 Fiends, 6 Celestials, 5 Genies, and maybe in some corner cases Proteans (Though supposedly Ganzi are more tainted by proximity)). Ysoki doesn't seem that unbelievable.

And by the PF feat Racial Heritage, every humanoid in existence, Ysoki included!

I'm more concerned about the lashunta illustrations.

It's a beautiful race retconned to be even more beautiful and idealized and Charismatic. And yet almost all of the lashunta in the illustrations look ugly and creepy. Some of them are so bad, I'd rather snuggle a shirren!


Being fair, the Outsiders really shouldn't count, since they can reproduce with *anything*.

It does lead to the amusing thought that humanity is some kind of ancient elder god creation that went wild, whose original intended purpose was as some kind of universal adapter. Able to breed with, and take on the properties, of anything, while rapidly reproducing to eventually overwhelm the original population.

Have you ever considered the notion that the whole of humanity IS the ancient elder god?

And yet we don't see any half-human shambling mounds. Damn dragons still have humanity beat in that regard.

How are we anthropomorphized apes, when we are actual apes?

Apes with an Rh factor that can be traced to the Rhesus macaque.

I always thought humans had the racial trait Breed with Anything. :)
