Fates Revolt Allowed Species

Here is a list (with links) to the allowed player character species and cultures.

While most any profession is allowed, though with variation between species and cultures, there are limitations for this campaign on which species may be player characters (PCs).

It is greatly encouraged to not pick the same old species as other settings and RPGs. The less similar to humans and humanoids the better for creative challenges.

This list is not exhaustive (yet), but should help with suggestions for what you could select.

Note that to be played as a PC for this campaign, must be good-aligned (despite whatever the species normal alignment typically happens to be), and an intelligent variant (will need to spend points if not normally beyond animal intelligence (8), to make intelligent “enough” to play as PC).
Must also spend points to enable some kind of speech or sign language that at least one other member off the PC group can understand.

Note any species that are native to the Northern continents, are rare survivors since those continents were utterly destroyed and turned into seas of magma during “The Shattering”. They would have had to be south of the equator on the seas (and likely shipwrecked thereafter), or on (or under) a southern land that wasn’t engulfed by the waves, firestorms, ash storms, ash winters, etc., triggered by the Shattering.
