Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Traits are a mess. Why do they have the Vermin type? (Vermin have no Intelligence score). There's no LA (they have flight and high natural AC) or favoured class. Why do they have skill penalties? What is "angrish"?

Ashiians are conservative beings with an affinity for technology. Early in their history they developed space travel. Ashiians work well with other Ashiians but have a hard time working with other races. Ashiians love to see new things and understand them. However since technology is the number one field in Ashiian science all others lack. Geology, ecology, and biology all take a backseat in Ashiian society. Ashiians get along with one another quite easily. War is very uncommon on Ashiia but there have been small factions that have gained power to overthrow the Empress. The Ashiians are ruled by one queen called The Empress.

Physical Description[edit]

Ashiians are insect-like biengs with a hard exoskeleton. Their eyes are not compound but are somewhat hidden behind small eye slits on their head. They are somewhat beetle like in their design but without the large mandibles. Their mouths are mandibles but are not large in comparison to their size. They come in an amazing array of colors that are comparable to their job.

Ashiians do not tend to get along with other species. They regard them as stupid uncivilized creatures who do not deserve their time. This is why the Ashiian Empire has evicted all other species from their territory. They regard other insect species as less than them. They do not make alliences. They do not trade. They are secretive, paranoid and do not trust anyone but other Ashiians. An advantage that can be exploited.


Ashiians are usually lawful evil but there have been reported cases of good Ashiians, they usually have been broken away from the Empresses mental reign.


Ashiia (ashee-ee ah)is the third planet in the Ashiian solar system, it is similar to Earth in environmental diversity, but it has a high oxygen density. This accounts for the large size of the insects on Ashiia. Arthropods are dominant here but less diverse than on Earth. The planet has a moon called Moshan.


Ashiians worship their god Dri-Gosh, father of Ashiians. Their main religion is Drinnan.


Ashiians speak Angrish.


Ashiians are given a first name at birth, and their last name is their job.
