This content intends to provide a different experience, or goes beyond the scope of the anticipated subjects and situations, than the 3.5e rules were intended to handle. Some portions of the content below may not be what you expect from traditional game content. When implementing this content, DMs and Players should read over all the information carefully, and consider the following specific notes of interest:
This racial family must be used as campaign-centered, and is adjusted to work solely with humans. Hence, it is highly recommended to not use it in normal campaign worlds.


Humanati[edit]

Humanati are artificially-made humanoids. Following the release of several genetically-engineered viruses on Earth, the population numbers were severely reduced. To overcome the severe shortage of working hands, the combined knowledge of genetic engineering and cloning was harnessed, and the first humanati were created. Originally nothing more than a cheap and loyal work/military force, with poor intuition and willpower, over time the humanati were developed, and other kinds were created, more unique and individualistic.

Note: This racial family, and their unique background story, are specifically adjusted to the date of mid to late 24nd century (placed at the very closure of PL 6, into the eve of PL 7) in a normal timeline development, with the present times of the campaign being several decades after the Virus Event.

Common Traits[edit]

Longevity: Regardless of the rate at which they age prior to reaching maturity, humanati's aging after reaching physical maturity is similar to that of ordinary humans of the 24rd century, who, through genetic engineering, managed to somewhat slow down their aging and achieve a life expectancy of about 120 years.

Enhanced Intellect: Humanati, similarly to ordinary humans of the 24nd century, are naturally more intelligent than the humans of the early 21st century. Intelligence +2

Contaminant Immunity: All humanati are either immune or extremely resilient to all sorts of containments and toxins. This is part of their design, to ensure their survival should another Virus Event occur.

Humanatus Kinds[edit]

Drone[edit]

The original humanatus kind, made to serve. Drones age very quickly, and are common in both physical and mental capabilities. While not unintelligent, they are naturally obedient and have poor intuition.

Drone Traits[edit]

Ability Score Change: Wisdom -4. Drones lack intuition and willpower.

Age: Drones age very quickly and reach maturity approximately at the age of 1 year.

Alignment: The most common alignment among them is Lawful Neutral.

Size and Type: Their size is Medium and their type is Humanoid (Human).

Speed: Drone base land speed is 30 feet per round.

Obedient: Drones are made to serve, and are genetically programmed such that they are naturally inclined to comply and obey. They suffer an additional -2 penalty on all Will saves.

Adaptive: Despite their lack of intuition, drones are naturally adaptive and can quickly adapt to situations and learn. They can use any skill untrained, even ones that normally require training.

Languages: Drones can speak, read, and write Common.

Table: Drone Random Height and Weight
Gender Base Height Height Modifier Base Weight Weight Modifier
Male 4’ 10” +2d8 120 lb. × (2d3) lb.

Bodyguard[edit]

These humanati were designed for military and security uses. Thus, bodyguards are strong, tough and agile, and are physically big. They are not as obedient as drones, and are also more intuitive and strong-willed than them, however not as much as ordinary people.

Powerful Physique: Bodyguards' physical stature allows them to function in many ways as if they were one size category larger (Large for mature bodyguards). Bodyguards can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty, and they are treated as 1 size category larger when their carrying capacity and the weight they can push, drag and lift are determined. However, their space and reach remain those of a creature of their actual size (Medium for mature bodyguards).

Healing Factor: Bodyguards have a large amount of raw stem cells in their blood, which allows them to heal quickly. They restore 1 HP per 12 hours of activity, or 1 HP per 4 hours of rest, 1 point of ability damage per 12 hours, and 1 point of drained ability per week.

Specialist[edit]

Specialist humanati are more intelligent and strong-willed than drones, and are also less common than them; they are made by order, and are reared to specialize in a specific profession, such as teaching, goldsmithing, workout training etc. Thus, they are more unique than common humanati.

Mentat[edit]

These unique humanati are, essentially, biological super-computers; their superhuman cognitive abilities of memory and perception allow them to perform supra-logical hypothesizing: gather large amounts of data and devise concise analyses in a process that goes far beyond logical deduction.

Mentat Traits[edit]

Ability Score Change: Intelligence +8, Wisdom +8.

Age: Mentats reach maturity approximately at the age of 15 years.

Photographic Memory/Auto-Numerate: Mentats may recall any memory they have ever had at will, as a free action. They can take both 10 and 20 to notice details (though taking 20 requires a standard action). They can also perform difficult (such as advanced algebra) mathematics in their head with an accuracy of (Int score x10) decimal places. A mentat's memory cannot be altered under normal circumstances.

Biological Computers: Mentats can take 20 on all Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma-based checks, even if normally one cannot take 20 on those checks, and even if they are distracted or threatened, and it only takes them a tenth of the time it usually takes, unless the specific action cannot be accelerated.

Languages: Mentats can speak, read, and write Common and 6 other languages. Mentats are easily the most polyglottic of all humanati.

Female 4’ 5” +2d8 85 lb. × (2d3) lb.

Spook[edit]

Sneaky humanati of small stature, spooks were initially designed to be spies and infiltrators. However, it didn't take long for people to realize their natural sneakiness makes them perfect for assassination. Because of that, creating and/or rearing spooks were both announced illegal, and to "correct all past mistakes", all known living spooks were supposedly executed by the global government. In spite of that, this is a common public opinion that the global government hasn't executed all of their spooks, and still has some spooks in possession, which they still use for special military operations that require extra stealth, despite the law against it. All government representatives firmly deny that, claiming it to be a mere conspiracy theory, yet public belief in the truth of this theory has been maintained for several decades already.

Clinging: Spooks have a +4 bonus on all Climb checks (which stacks with the +8 bonus they already receive from having climbing speed), and suffer no penalty for performing an accelerated climb.

Lithe Physique: Spooks are naturally agile and dexterous, and their small structure allows them to hide easily. They have a +6 bonus on all Dexterity-based checks, and an additional +2 bonus on all Hide checks.

Healing Factor: Spooks have a vast amount of raw stem cells in their blood, which allows them to heal very quickly. They restore 1 HP per 3 hours of activity, or 1 HP per hour of rest, 1 point of ability damage per 6 hours, and 1 point of drained ability per 3 days. They have an additional +2 bonus on all Fortitude saves.
