Species Name: Varies greatly according to which alien race they are based on.

A Progeny is the end result of mixing two different species in the biological process of reproduction. As most humanoids share a common genetic ancestor, the ancient humanoids who seeded the Milky Way Galaxy with genetic material, interspecies reproduction can occur between many races. Interspecies reproduction can be difficult between some species as not all species have their genitals in the same place. One of the parents however must always be Earth Human for this race.

Hybridization is not without risk. Anatomical, physiological and psychological abnormalities can occur and affect the nervous system, blood chemistry, or the brain. The hybrid may even be sterile. Some species are also nearly or totally incompatible. Interspecies reproduction between some races requires genetic engineering to assist the process. Genetic hybrids sometimes have heightened strength or senses, gaining the advantages of both parent species without most of their weaknesses. Occasionally, the opposite is also true. In addition to the potential physiological difficulties, some hybrids suffer from the cultural prejudices and taboos of their parents' societies.

Creating a Progeny character

Step 1: Attributes

Roll 3D6 for each attribute. However if the alien parent has an additional D6 in an attribute then the character gains +1 to the roll. eg. Tsaurids have STR: 6D6, DEX: 4D6, and CON: 5D6. So a half Tsaurid would roll STR 3D6 +3, DEX 3D6 +1 and CON 3D6 +2.

Hit Points are worked out by minusing the Human HPs from the alien one. eg. A standard Human is CON +D4 while a Tsaurid is CON +D20 so the difference is 16. Thus a Human/Tsaurid hybrid HPs would be = CON +16.

Step 2: Skills

Choose skills in the normal manner according to the character's class and what planet they are living on.

Step 3: Abilities

Progeny start with 35 Points to spend on any of the following abilities. As they earns more experience they may buy or rebuy more abilities.
