…people might not have heard of.
While some are tried and true but new names reskinning older ideas, some of these are concepts I haven’t seen in publications as a group. This could be useful in order to demonstrate how different another area is (including a newly discovered dimension) or to flavor a campaign the uses are nearly endless.
Chemovore: This is a character who can sense and interact with materials on a molecular level while still generating operational level effects. Basically the name translates as “one who eats chemicals” it is a bit more complex than that though because gaining nourishment from chemical compounds is what most organic being really do. This character concept/design revolves around a much broader spectrum of abilities such as transforming .
Datavore: Similar to the Chemovore this character possesses incredible abilities to interact with data on both a large and small scale. Some versions of this character concept do deal with eating thoughts (devouring data in an almost literal way),
Gearheart: A character that became a Cyborg by surviving an accident, rather than one built by choice.
Inukshuk- from the Inuit language and translated as “Image of man” this is a descriptor for concepts such as cybernetic full body conversions or aliens or robots who have a human form like andro & Gyno ids. Perhaps made of strange materials compared to most lifeforms.
