Inner Sea Beastiary gives us the Android race. Made in Forges they wonder away from their birthplace and forget exactly 'where' they were made. Only that they came alive fully adult and aware.

They look mostly human except for the circut patterns on their body that light up when they use their Nanite Surge, and the all too pale blood and eyes.

So...how do you think they are taken as they spread out over the Inner Sea?

Numeria obviously has experience with this rare breed. The Barbarian Tribes might have lore about them and how they act and won't freek when they see one approach. But what happens when one shows up in Cheliax? Or the Pathfinder Society runs across one in Katapesh?

How do you as Players and DMs plan to deal with them if they come up in your games?

For DM's it's not an if.. It's a choice since they have control of what shows up and what doesn't.

As to how they are taken... there are races that look far more weird than just being pale looking humans. And lots of Humans in the Inner Sea have funky tattoos.

True. At first they could pass themselves off as a Human. But get a good look at their eyes and it might seem weird. Especially when you notice they don't sleep or have problems in total darkness. Or worse, that they don't seem to eat.

A better question is. Is anyone MAKING Android characters?


I don't have the book yet, and neither do I have any ideas in mind.


I find it unlike I'd find a working one just lying around. I mean, they're expensive, you know?

Sorry, couldn't resist, carry on.

If I had a GM who was willing to run in Numeria, or a group that would be comfortable with me running a campaign with ties to Numeria, androids would definitely be a playable race. I was pleasantly surprised to see that 0-HD monsters are now going to include the ARG build rules.

But neither of those things are things that show up at first glance. And many of them can be worked around. And you don't necessarily have to let people know that you can see in the dark just fine.

I wonder if the circut patterns are unique to the android? Color too.


I'm making a android Aegis npc for my numerian campaign with a custom list of powers and modifications in its own little archetype. It still needs work though.

I would play one.

I don't see any mention of androids don't eating or sleeping, nor any cost associated to those abilities. You are assuming something that isn't there in the race description.


Replicants in fiction often still have to eat. I mean they need to get energy from something, and carrying around a nuclear reactor within them might have hillarious consequences
