If you want to play a character who is good at Grappling despite being small, go with a Platypus. They're even crazy enough to wrassle things bigger than themselves. Adventuring Race
: Most Platypi go on adventures to prove themselves or right some sort of wrong. Rarely one might be in it for the money or glory, but the most common reasons are self worth or justice. Character Development
: Platypi tend to be simple common folk who enjoy a good bit of unarmed whackery as entertainment. Most are classes relying on combat or fighting (Fighter, Ranger, Wrassler, or Scout). Not many Arcane casters live in the boonies where the Platypi call home, and as a result most of their casting types are Divine. Character Names
: Males: Albert, Alfred, Amos, Arthur, Basil, Bill, Cliff, Clive, Colin, Duncan, George, Gordon, Harold, Jim, John, Oliver, Percy, Sidney, Stanley, Thomas, Wallace, William. Female: Agnes, Alice, Audrey, Barbara, Bess, Betsy, Claire, Daphne, Dolly, Fanny, Francis, Gladys, Gloria, Harriet, Hazel, Jane, Lucy, Martha, Mary, Nelly, Polly, Sally, Sheila, and Wanda. Surnames: Usually based on something the family has long been famous for. For example a family of famous wrestlers might be known as the Tuggers.ROLEPLAYING A PLATYPI
As a Platypus your fairly exotic, and will attract lots of attention, most of it unwanted. You'll also have lots of jackholes calling you a duck or a beaver or some other critter you aren't even vaguely related to. Stupidity should be a crime honestly. And if it ever is may the Gawds help the world if you get appointed Judge. Personality
: Platypi are clam and laid back (well, until wrasslin' day), and prefer others be that way as well. Most people who know them are shocked when they see their celebrations. They give no mercy in fights though, even when it isn't to the death. Behaviors
: Platypi don't like being ordered, and react not so well to insults. But they prefer brawling or wrestling to solving their problems to actual lethal violence. Stylized incoherency is also both a favored prank on strangers and a sort of sport among them. Language
: Platypi speak their own dialect of Furry, much like the other Furry races.PLATYPI SOCIETY
Platypi culture is similar to the real world Australian Aborigines with a few important exceptions: Platypi prefer to go exploring in the water. And they like their entertainment loud and physical. Wrestling is studied by both sexes, often from childhood. Modern style professional wrestling with it's storylines and over the top goofiness is ingrained in their culture, and giving incoherent rambling interviews is a common past time. ("MY OPPONENT IS FEEBLE! HIS MIND IS LIKE A LITTLE PLANE, AND I TOOK CONTROL OF THAT PLANE AND MADE IT MAKE SWEET, SWEET LOVE TO THE MANATEES! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!") Alignment
: Platypi are generally Neutral with the more fun loving sort drifting towards Chaotic or Good tendencies. Lands
: Platypus usually live in fairly harsh warm weather areas near local rivers and waterways, or on the oceanside. Settlements
: If Platypi settle anywhere, it's somewhere warm and near plenty of water. Preferably with as few troublesome people as possible. Beliefs
:Platypi are nature and spirit worshipers. As such they have many Druids and Spirit Shamans among them, but precious few Clerics (and those are converts). Relations
: Platypi don't get along so well with larger races because they tend to try to bully them. They don't get along with some of the dumber races either because of all the duck jokes. But if you don't give them grief they will be loyal to the death.PLATYPI ADVENTURES
· Local Wrasslin' legend Bob "Nipple Slicer" Harris has been found slain. This will not do. You and the brothers have been summoned to kick ___ until his murderer is found.
· The local government needs some good Masked Wrasslers to ferret out spies sabotaging the local water supply. Goodness knows why they're asking you, but they always seem to go to Masked Wrasslers for help.
· The local racist Orc buttheads came to a celebration in your town and called everyone slurs. You aren't ducks. You're Platypi. And they're gonna pay. Course they usually do something stupid like this as a prelude to a raid so you prolly won't even have to go looking for them.PLATYPI RACIAL SUBSTITUTION LEVELSRanger Level 2, 6, 11
