10 Facts About Skittermanders:

1. THOUGH SKITTERMANDER FUR COMES IN A VARIETY OF COLORS, AN INDIVIDUAL SKITTERMANDER’S FUR COLOR BEARS NO OBVIOUS CORRELATION TO HER PARENTS’ FUR COLORS OR THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH SHE WAS BORN.

2. SKITTERMANDERS USE THEIR SIX ARMS TO GESTURE A GREAT DEAL WHILE SPEAKING; THE POSITIONING OF THEIR ARMS OFTEN CHANGES THE IMPLICATIONS OF THEIR WORDS, FROM GREAT EMPHASIS TO WITHERING SARCASM.

3. A SKITTERMANDER’S NAME GROWS AS THE SKITTERMANDER AGES AND PASSES CERTAIN MILESTONES. A NAME BEGINS VERY SHORT, USUALLY NO MORE THAN ONE SYLLABLE. NEW SYLLABLES ARE ADDED WITH THE PASSING OF TIME OR WHENEVER THE SKITTERMANDER FEELS LIKE IT. ADDED SYLLABLES ARE OFTEN REPETITIVE, AND MANY SKITTERMANDERS ADOPT PARTS OF OTHER ALIEN NAMES (PARTICULARLY VESK NAMES) INTO THEIR OWN.

4. SKITTERMANDERS HAVE A FLUID OUTLOOK TOWARD LEADERSHIP, DEFERRING TO WHOMEVER HAS THE MOST EXPERTISE TO TACKLE THE TASK AT HAND; THE CONCEPT OF PERMANENT GOVERNANCE SEEMS STRANGE TO THEM.

5. MOST SKITTERMANDERS BECOME FASCINATED WITH A PARTICULAR SPECIFIC TOPIC, WHETHER IT BE THE RELIGIOUS RITES OF A SMALL SECT OF WORSHIPERS, THE INTERPLAY OF FUNDAMENTAL PARTICLES AT A QUANTUM LEVEL, OR THE NATIVE CUISINE OF A TINY ICE COVERED MOON. SKITTERMANDERS LEARN EVERYTHING THEY CAN ABOUT THEIR CHOSEN TOPICS, EVEN IF THE INFORMATION SEEMS USELESS TO OTHERS.

6. AN ADULT SKITTERMANDER RETAINS A WHELP’S ABILITY TO EAT JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, AND MANY GET THE URGE TO BINGE ON A SPECIFIC TYPE OF CUISINE OR A CERTAIN FLAVOR OF FOOD FOR SEVERAL DAYS. THIS TYPICALLY OCCURS IMMEDIATELY AFTER GETTING A TASTE OF A NEW TYPE OF FOOD OR FLAVOR.

7. THOUGH SKITTERMANDERS CAN TALK EXCITEDLY AND AT LENGTH ABOUT A TOPIC (ESPECIALLY ONES THEY ARE INTERESTED IN), SEEMINGLY WITHOUT NEEDING TO TAKE A BREATH, THEY ALSO FALL INTO LONG BOUTS OF SILENCE WHEN UNDERTAKING PARTICULARLY CHALLENGING TASKS.

8. SKITTERMANDERS DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY OTHER SPECIES INDULGE IN DIVERSIONS AND PASTIMES THAT GIVE A FALSE SENSE OF FEAR. SKITTERMANDERS DON’T GO ON THRILL RIDES (SUCH AS ROLLERCOASTERS) OR CONSUME ENTERTAINMENT IN THE HORROR GENRE (SUCH AS SCARY VIDS).

9. EARLY SKITTERMANDERS DEVELOPED A SERIES OF MYTHS AND LEGENDS CENTERED AROUND THE CONSTELLATIONS OF THE NIGHT SKY. MANY SKITTERMANDERS STILL HOLD THESE PARTIALLY SECULAR, PARTIALLY SPIRITUAL BELIEFS; SOME RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS THINK THIS IS A FORM OF THE FAITH OF IBRA THE INSCRUTABLE.

10. SKITTERMANDERS BELIEVE IN THE EQUALITY OF ALL BEINGS, NO MATTER THEIR RACE, CREED, GENDER, OR ORIENTATION.



Were you unable to participate in Free RPG Day? Are you interested in unique rewards? If so, here's your chance!

I'll be running this adorable adventure for the PbP Gameday VII. Pregen characters are required and can be found here

For this, I'll be choosing 6 players out of the first 12 to respond. Once those players are locked in, I'll send out an interest verification August 6th, a week before the Game Day begins. At a minimum I'll be taking 4.

Please put me in the drawing! Very excited to play this one after my Free RPG day plans fell through.


You know what, typically I'm not too pleased to run anything Pre-gen but I think it'll be interesting. I've not done it before for rewards.


I will try any of the pregens, but I like QUONX


I'm interested. Haven't got the chance yet. Would like to try Nako or Dakoyo.


I keep hearing lots of chatter about this one, but no idea what it's about. Sounds intriguing though, so count me in on the lottery, please!


You can find the Skittermander pregens already formatted to BB Code by the amazing Elianna here in the PBP GM Kit.

BTW, GM, the game is now available to be selected in the PBP Gameday 7 dropdown listing.

Thanks :) I'd already signed up with the appropriate selection (I think?) but the pregens are certainly useful.

Dataphiles

Sign me up for a chance, too!


I'll gladly pkay if there's spots left.


I'm not sure how Skitter Shot works, but I'm definitely interested!

Count me in to the possible choices.

Liberty's Edge

I am new to play by post but I would love the chance to play.


To all those who don't get in, I'll take the leftovers since I'm running the same game. Oh and don't count me as one of the first 12 responding, I'm signed up with GM Paladin.

If there are any spots remaining I would like to put my name in.


I'm closing Recruitment for now. Can the following confirm your interest in the Discussion Tab?

Cellion
Vitaliano da Riva
Buckshot Bob
Kuey
Agent Eclipse
Stiehle

If anyone needs to drop I'll pull from players that didn't get picked for this or DoubleGold's table.

Thanks everyone!
