Savage Worlds: Slith


Brief: Slith vary depending on what genre the game is played in. In a fantastical setting, Slith are from a species of planar spanning humanoids that have been scattered to the astral winds by the death of their original homeworld. In a science-fiction setting they are a space race whose world, much like their partners and rivals, the Greys, lost their original homeworld to a failed weapons test. Both kinds of Slith have emaciated figures, a skin color that ranges from shades of light yellow to a yellow-green, dark hair, and a lack of a nose. They are known to be clever, but cold. Contrary to popular belief, Slith are not born with innate arcane or psionic talent, but they do have a habit of being fast learners.


Smart: Begins play with D6 Smarts

Cold: Slith's have a cold nature about them that gives them a -2 Charisma.

Darkvision: Slith can see in total darkness, albeit in a greyscale up to 6" (30 ft.)
