    1) I didn't see an LA.
    2) No LA seems a bit low.
    3) I didn't know whose name to put it under.

    Snowbluff you're misusing the "A Dragon did it" category. That's for races that exist because a dragon made them.
    I follow a general rule: better to ask and be told no than not to ask at all.

    I don't believe in the use of LA, so I don't assign my races an LA. And suprisingly, they're only about 17 RP(What Fetchlings have). RP may very on how highly rated certain racial traits seem to be. Martial Scion could be anywhere from 3 RP to 6 RP, and the Bonus Feat they get ignores Pre-Reqs, so it's more powerful than the Static Bonus Feat standard trait, which is 2 RP, so I gave it a value of 3 RP, though the argument can be made for 4 RP.

    I also made the Battleborn as a collective race for some of the major contributers to PoW, i.e. Keledrath, Elricaltovilla, and Lord_Gareth

    Can I point out how silly it is to not believe in LA, but at the same time make an argument on RP that doesn't have a strong precedent?

    Mhmm... Sure, while I agree that races like the Gargoyles or Drow Nobles should have some sort of penalty to their progression, the less strong races (read as anything 20 RP or below), shouldn't have a penalty for playing them. That's just bad game design, even if it is just used to deter players from using uncommon or "evil" races. I'm also just estimating on the RP cost, but there are only two racial abilities that do not have a corresponding RP cost in the Pathfinder Race Builder that I could find, the rest had actual values.

    Yeah, it so hard to gauge things like that in the game. The RP values aren't necessarily balanced against eachother, either.

    Good news. I've found the origin of Rudisplorking.

    I warn you to be careful how you react to what is on the other side of the rift, the mods don't like Rrudisplorking and only tolerate the Rudisplorkers' Guild because Orcus.

    (Every Atemu1234 race comes out as ate-(noun), which is funny to me).

    Atemost

    Backstory
    Spoiler
    Show

    The Atemost, known as etherwraiths, are a race of creators. They arose hundreds of thousands of years ago in the mists of the ethereal, and can instinctively create new and vibrant species with their innate powers. This ability has made the Atemost revered by the races they create and despised by those their creations have supplanted. Some have ascribed the creation of the Elves, Humans, Dragons, and other natural creators to the Atemost. When told these stories they simply smile and refuse to verify or deny the story.

    It is believed that when the Atemost desire to reproduce they simply create a new Atemost using their power, but this is not certain.


    Appearance
    Spoiler
    Show

    Atemost are beautiful but strange creatures. Born of the ethereal, they have skin which shifts between transparent and opaque black based on their emotions. An Atemost has no hair or other external stimuli, and the shape of their limbs is obscured by their skin.

    Their skin is loose and twitches frequently, giving it the appearance of a flowing cape or gown. The Atemost's organs are luminescent, with each one a different color. Their organs are all identical except for placement, size and color, being perfectly spherical. The heart and brain are the most spectacular, being twice the size of the other organs and glowing a fierce red and blue respectfully.

    There are 10 visible organs in the Atemost body, but other than the heart, brain and two green lungs they are not identified. The Atemost also contain a network of purple tubes which act both as veins and as a cartilaginous skeleton. These are always transparent and do not glow, making them difficult to spot in a living Atemost.


    Society
    Spoiler
    Show

    An Atemost lives a mostly isolationist life. Sexless and solitary, they have no instinctive desire to communicate with each other or see old creations. However each Atemost believes it is an artist seeking the creation of the true, divine art. This compels them to overlook their creations and protect them while they are yet new, and compete with each other for the best forms. Some Atemost believe perfection is in power, others in physical beauty according to their own aesthetic, and still others by their societies.

    Some Atemost hate the forms created by their peers, and create life simply meant to purify the universe of imperfect art. These are the most evil of Atemost, genocidal and xenophobic. Some believe the violent and frightening Atemost mage Sthren created the Beholders as an attempt to create a perfect representation of his own xenophobia.

    Create life creates an organism from the clouds of the ethereal plane. An Atemost can only create life when on the Ethereal plane and it takes 1000 GP and 1 week per HD of the creature created.

    Note: Use the Eidolon creation rules, with the Atemost being treated as a Summoner of equivalent level to their HD. The "Eidolon" is permanent and free willed once created, but starts with a friendly disposition towards the Atemost. The created form's type can be changed by spending 2 evolution points, and if it is not an Undead, Construct, or Outsider they can reproduce if a second one of the opposite sex is made.




    Note: I originally made my own rules for Create Life, but this seemed simpler.

    Hmm, how would you balance it then? I could make it LA +2 or 3 and give it a bigger stat boost perhaps?

    By all means post your thought, the derailment is probably mostly over for now. Some of us probably needed to get some silliness out of our systems. The more people act on topic the more likely things are to return to normal. Also i haven't seen any rule about one race per person, and have seen some examples of people getting multiple things out of this so you should be too worried about the thread derailment. Although in this case making races can be harder than some of the past things these threads have done.

    Ssalarn, this one is yours

    Ssalafee

    Backstory
    Spoiler
    Show

    The Ssalafee are thought to be related to the Sobek, but tend to inhabit the deep sands and caves rather than the rivers and swamps their cousins prefer. Once, they had a great empire, a center for the crafts and arts. Their forefathers were cursed by a mage jealous of their grace and charm, however, and this led eventually to the collapse of their cities and trades. Although the curse has long since faded, the memory of it remains in those who remain.

    Buried ruins of the Ssalafee empires are sometimes found in the sands. Inevitably, they are full of great art, ancient lore, fine weapons, and on occasion immense amounts of gold.


    Appearance
    Spoiler
    Show

    Sinuous and graceful, the Ssalafee embody all that which is both beautiful and dangerous about the venomous snakes they resemble. They tend to be about three and a half feet tall (though about 5 feet if you actually stretched them out), and beautifully patterned in jewel tones, with onyx-black and sandy tan also common scale colors also common. Their heads are much like a viper, long enough to hold their fangs but with a high brow indicating that they are more than mere beasts.


    Society
    Spoiler
    Show

    Some wander the deserts, some dwell deep in the caves, but all prefer to pursue their arts in peace. The Ssalafee are almost never impulsive, preferring to think things through (and consult the Omens) before acting. This goes doubly true for major life events. Ssalafee parents have been known to take years deciding on the names of potential young or where to make their first permanent home (if any).


    Racial Traits
    Spoiler
    Show

    Humanoid (akashic, reptilian)
    +2 Dex, +2 Cha, -2 Con. Ssalafee are both graceful and hypnotic, but their slight frames make them fragile.
    Small size.
    Bonus Essence:​ Ssalafee have a natural connection to akashic energy and start play with 1 bonus essence point in their pool.
    Desert Adaptation: The Ssalafee requires half of the usual amount of food and water to eat, and can exist comfortably in temperatures up to 140 degrees. Cold affects them normally.
    Venomous Bite: Deals 1d4 damage, plus delivers a supernatural poison that saps the will of their prey. DC 10+Cha, damage 1 Wis/round for one round, cured by one successful save. A Ssalafee can invest essence into his venom to make it more potent, increasing the save DC and Duration of their venom by one for each point invested.

    Superstitious: Due to the curse of ill fortune the Ssalafee have been under for generations, they have developed a superstitious bent. On character creation, choose some kind of portent that the Ssalafee has studied all their lives (such as a Harrow deck, stargazing, rolling dice, wildlife behaviors, or even seeing random symbols in the world). Once per day, plus once more per four character levels they possess, they may spend a full round action observing their chosen portent to gain the effects of any 0th or 1st level spell or power with Detect in the name, with a caster level equal to their character level. Any time the Ssalafee goes a full day without using this ability, however, they suffer a -1 to all saves until they do so again.

    "Afee" is Farsi for Viper, so it fits the naming theme of the Akashic races.
    Akashic is obvious, the curse is a running joke through his writing process, and the will-sapping venom? Well, that's from my immediate, obsessed reaction to reading what he writes when I can find it.
    Small size was just because none of the other Akashic races had it.
    Stat arrangement comes from a discussion on the old Dreamscarred Press forums, talking about the Nameer.
    Superstitious is just cool stuff I thought up

Although in this case making races can be harder than some of the past things these threads have done.
    No amount of derailment can kill these threads.

    And yes, each player can have multiple races.

    People have expressed interested in my tastes and anime. Would you guys like a thread where I go over my anime picks?

    personally i don't care if the thread derails a bit, but it seems normal to banter in these kinds of threads. As long as the people who are on topic aren't too disrupted by any silliness going on, it seems fine to me.

    Though i would willingly go over to another thread to discuss anime if that is what people want. I've been in a bit of a slump lately for anime and this thread has given me some good ones to look at.

    I'll make another thread tomorrow. There is another thread for anime already, but that's a lot more broad compared to what I have in mind. I'll keep the OP focused to my personal suggestions and thoughts so the thread will be easily to follow for the anime in question.

    ...I'm assuming you mean KLK, not GL. Because I'm really curious how you got any of that (maybe personal triumph) out of GL.

    Also, IZ, yes, that is what you just watched (I don't have words for it)
    I follow a general rule: better to ask and be told no than not to ask at all.
