Thinking Races: Inhuman Beauty


The Thinking Races Series provides new takes
on the familiar races of fantasy gaming, and over the
course of the line, will introduce several dozen new
player races and sub-races to the game. This volume
focuses on a selection of nearly human races renowned
for their inhuman eroticism and alien beauty.
Some creatures are made beautiful by their
very strangeness.

Fantasy gaming has always allowed gamers
to thrill to the exotic and the impossible. With only a
few words, a skilled game master can allow her
players to taste a kingly feast, to hear the sounds of
an Elven bard’s harp, to feel the blood-freezing
entropy of a white dragon’s breath. Gamers have the
option of playing any creature they can imagine,
especially under the current edition of the rule-set,
and can do battle with, or romance an equally
diverse crew.

The races in this sourcebook are built
around a two interlaced themes: beauty and strangeness.
Inspired by fairy tales and classic mythology,
many of these races are also stereotypically ‘feminine’.
Pixies, merfolk, centaurs and half-human
beings of all kind, these glamorous new races have
unique powers, unique cultures and truly unique
personalities. These exotic characters were chosen
to represent the most common archetypes of nonhumanoid
beauty found in gaming.

And they are all beautiful, even if their
beauty is something completely outside human

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
