These are various racial designs that I've got kicking around (or found
on a Web Page somewhere); most of these are aliens, so far, but some fantasy
ones are here too. (And I've always wondered what it would be like to do
a fantasy campaign using the races from Aliens
. . .) I also stuck robotic body designs here, for lack of a better place...
Note: though these pages are located at the Steve Jackson Games web-site, the racial designs contained within are NOT canon! (Except Sparrials, and they've been changed since their Roleplayer days.) Steve Jackson Games has kindly provided the space for these UNOFFICIAL racial-description sheets, but the responsibility for them is mine and the authors'.
(Entries with a "*" are off-site -- I found them somewhere else.)
Genetically engineered combat monsters.
(I could't think where else to put these.)
Slot in one of these, cyber-d00d, and you really are trusting someone else with your life...
Hunted shapeshifters in a fantasy setting.
A monkey-like race by Stefan Jones.
Humanoid aliens with an assortment of "invader" disads.
Big, scaly, and mean. Designs by Kromm.
(My, but I'm glad these aren't on my site...) Centaurs, Draconians, Kobolds, and more. There's some more of these from the Misc. Races * link, too -- like Gully Dwarves...
A treatment of shy and mysterious Sea Elves.
From Roleplayer, some templates for sentient animals. The Cat template is lacking some important advantages and disadvantages, from my point of view, but it's a start.
Varient Dwarves, Elves, Orcs, and half-breeds. Nice stuff, check it out.
A primitive humanoid from Roleplayer.
Six-legged, small aliens, symbiotes with the Tybor.
An adaptation of Rolemaster High Elves into GURPS.
Practical-joking hive-minded insects. The "queens" are the sentient ones.
A most interesting little symbiote/parasite... trying to take over the universe.
From Roleplayer. Ways to make non-sentient horses with plenty of character...
Different types of humans, from Roleplayer. Interesting article.
From Roleplayer again, a race which got clipped from GURPS Fantasy Folk.
Plains-dwelling cat-centaurs, strong and fast. Suitable for hunter-gatherers or rowdy star-farers. I have a couple stories with Kintarans as main characters, in PawPrints .
A more affordable version (intended as the descendents of a crashed clanship).
Based on Larry Niven's "Known Space" stories (or Man-Kzin Wars series).
Hey, why not....?
The very first appearance of same in an SJG product! Roleplayer, of course.
An assortment of races, including some (all?) from the Dragonlance series that TSR publishes.
Very happy creatures -- the "hosts" for the Hornath.
Some revisions of "standard" fantasy races, perhaps closer to mythology's versions.
A subjugated alien race from Roleplayer.
A new look at an old foe.
A bio-engineered combat race; ugly, stupid, cannon-fodder.
A selection of interesting races for a fantasy campaign being run by Peter Brodt. Note that Kaa (GURPS Aliens) show up, as do versions of drow-like elves, Fairy-creatures, Trolls, and other fun stuff. It looks really neat! You'll probably have to scroll up a bit from where this link lands you, though. [The PC & NPC links, if they work, will be more accurate.]
A critter from The Fantasy Trip, converted by Steffan O'Sullivan.
Again, from Larry Niven's "Known Space" stories.
A slave-race for an alien culture.
Adapted to GURPS.
Plant-based humanoids, intended for a Fantasy campaign.

A robotic design.
"A draconic PC race for GURPS Fantasy by S.D. Anderson."
A "cyberdroid" design from Bubblegum Crisis, adapted by the talented David L. Pulver.
A reptilian race, sort of a cross between Kaa, Klingons, and Jurassic Park's Velociraptors...
Klingons, Romulans, and Vulcans in GURPS terms.
A really cool writeup for living starships -- actually several symbiotic races.
A fragile-boned, tough-minded humanoid race primarily defined by their Sense of Duty (children).
Blue-skinned humanoids who'd fit into a Star Trek universe. (I.e., humans in blue body paint.)
Large reptilians, in a symbiotic relationship with the smarter Halzden.
Smart reptilian bipeds with a rather complicated life-cycle.
Several races that didn't make it into GURPS Uplift -- the Episiarchs, Fonnir, Norruhk, Tytlal, and Klick-klick.
The body-design for a flying robot that can turn invisible and pass for
No name yet (got any suggestions?); basically slave-using psionic tribbles.
Very cute, very unpleasant.
