I'd wager a link would bring the mods down on the guy unless Slipshine has done a 180 at some point and is no longer a collection of pornography strips.

Oh!

Uh... thanks!

Did not realize that!

Sorry!

O.O

... in my game, we have a kasathan soldier and ysoki ace pilot who are married.

So... there's that, at least!

(The same ship has a lashunta doctor and his phrenic adept sister, a vesk hired as the "people person", an android captain with a chip on his shoulder, and an ysoki devoted to Hylax; though it also contains a half-orc priestess, a bounty hunter, a weird elf, and two quiet agents - a gnome and an android; it used to contain more kastha and some humans, but, back story and random dice meant they've all joined the choir invisible. There's also an android awaiting renewal, but it's taking its sweet time.)

Ack! I can't believe I forgot to mention the genius Shirren mechanist xenophile! She's extremely interested in the doctor, and is kind of furious that he hasn't, you know, asked her anything, yet.

Wasn't there an episode in one of the Star Trek shows where the main characters made a discovery that heavily implied that some "master race" had seeded the quadrant, and that, that was why there were so many similarities between the races there (including their ability to breed with one another)?

That would go a long way towards explaining some things.

Theres one issue.... starfinder does not have the bard class. And everyone knows the bards are the true half breed creaters. The second thing is that there are no humans anymore just dire halflings.

Except that this seeding took place so long ago that it wouldn't have worked to allow interbreeding -- for example, humans would still be more closely related to various great apes than to any alien humanoid races. I have no idea how any sort of convergent evolution could lead to genetic compatibility among different alien races even if they share a small set of virally implanted genetic code and the same overall body plan.

On the matter of Star Trek, the novels went even further. At the very least, you could have crossbreeds ( or "fusions", as the Klingons of Ford called them ), between any of Humans, Klingons, Vulcans/Romulans, and Orions. It might need genetic tweaking to work, but this is viewed as basic reproductive medicine, akin to taking fertility medication.

The dashing human and the intrepid ysoki adventurers finally let their attraction and lust get the better of them to discover they are divinely blessed with a child. Their daughter has the musculan features of her mother - tail, ears and snout softened by her father's human form and halfway in height to her parents. She's furless but with long flowing ginger blonde hair.

Influenced by her parents' past, the young half-ysoki becomes infatuated with technology and dreams of her own adventures someday. Her father kids her enthusiasm and nicknames her his little halfwrench.

The years go by and she finally gets to prove herself hiring on to a ship as a mechanic while being a bit bookish as her mother.

Entering the ship in her fairly ordinary lavender flight suit, a well used tool kit and a hover drone oddly named Zipper, she introduces herself as Gadget.

I never was a fan of half-anything species. It is just not how genetics work, but hey, MAGIC. I don't see why you can't make a potion to make interspecies fertility work.

I actually created an NPC pair who were a ysoki and half-elf. Since one was a physician-mage and the other a biochemical engineer, they combined transmutation magic and gene therapy that allowed them to successfully have a kid. Said kid is a half-elf like his mother...but manfiests natural lycanthropy and becomes a wererat as a teenager.

It's tough for him, but hey, at least his mom got to publish a paper about the possible origins of lycanthropy.

Our table solved that the other way. She's a half-elf mechanically, but with rattine features (jawline, ears higher up, darker hair than is usual for an elf, no scalera, etc.).

Probably eggs. It's a trait of reptiles. Even Dragons who are canonically warm-blooded lay eggs.

I Was a Teenage Were-Ysoki was the 3rd highest grossing trideo sim of 314 AG among the Pact Worlds. It was perceived as a horror flick in elven society on Castrovel and as a comedy in ysoki culture on Akiton.

Didn't Burroughs' Barsoomian Red Martians lay eggs? Did Dejah Thoris and John Carter have kids? (Edit: Google says they had two children but doesn't turn up whether they were live births or hatched.)

I assume their would be potions to ensure genetic compatibility, physical compatibility, and safe birth for lovers from very different alien species.

Carthoris was definitely hatched from an egg (see the end of the book A Princess of Mars). There's no mention of Tara of Helium's birth in the source material but it was almost certainly the same

Burroughs' Red Martians did lay eggs, they also could live a thousand years. Starfinders version are just humans with red skin.

Sadly, they are also very underrepresented in the art (as in, is there any art of them at all in the Starfinder publications?), despite presumably representing much of what is left of humanity outside of Golarion.

Hand job jokes are not obligatory.

If you're not here for a good faith discussion and are just coming in to make jokes, this is not the thread for you. Take it elsewhere. Thank you.

We may not have Bards anymore, but we do have Envoys, which are like somewhat less magical bards in space.

In many ways that depends on what the various "species" actually are. Lions and tigers can crossbreed, despite having numerous distinct differences.

Also, the various differences in dog breeds is greater in many ways than the variation between most fantasy races, but a great dance and chihuahua can (at least most likely) interbreed and produce viable offspring. Bloodhounds, Shar-Peis, and Catahoula leopard dogs each have traits the other breeds do not, but can viable interbreed.


Owen: I had a question for you, but I'm totally going to post it in your ask me anything for it instead! Because, you know, it ellipses probably isn't super appropriate here. I mean, it's related, but….dog breeding. You know?

Boop!

Owen's been pretty busy, though!
