Alien Evolutions is a line of books intended to bring outlandish alien creatures to life in your game. Each book will explore myriad topics regarding creatures from distant planets, whether that be playable races, monsters to encounter, world descriptions, or various other things related.

The Cosmic Race Guidebook is a book intended to give the GM and players 25 new playable races with unique physiologies and abilities. Creatures from the aerial Abrial to the free-floating-nervous- system-encased-in-armor Uavaryon should present something enticing for anyone to play. Take a look inside at the colorful, comic-inspired creatures!

  • Abrial  Haughty winged humanoids that boast superiority over the skies and space.
  • Argenex   Three-eyed warlords that roam the universe in search for new and exciting conquests.
  • Belrop A density shifting species that makes its home between a black hole and a white hole.
  • Choqua   A tough avian race that fights to avoid becoming dinner for other species.
  • Chukulak A race of parasitic slavers that combine hedonism with a disregard for waste.
  • Cilderon Small metallic beings that can dampen magic around them and speak in musical tones.
  • Cruonseri  An honorable but warlike mercenary race that values battle as one of their greatest traditions.
  • Draykon   A powerful and charismatic race that claims to be evolved from dragons.
  • Evern  A race of athletes who also have quite a minor knack for gambling and business.
  • Flelsh  Mysterious sluglike beings that closely guard the secrets of their homeworld.
  • Fyr   Plasma beings that claim to be the oldest life in the universe!
  • Invectron  Undead creatures that strive to help others and do good deeds wherever they go.
  • Mrok  Skilled crafters who find beauty and creating new and exciting technologies.
  • Nogard  Proud humanoids that love frills but are quick to anger at any perceived slights.
  • Ogtara Cunning scoundrels that have no home planet but make themselves indispensable with their secrets.
  • Ohahn Crystalline beings that protect those too weak to help themselves.
  • Pendar A half-angelic race that righteously fights evil and injustices throughout the cosmos.
  • Pexpin A hive-mind of living flames with close ties to the Plane of Fire.
  • Plewd  Ultracapitalist traders that use their telepathy and charm to gain an edge in all things.
  • Qrp   An arthropod race that blends technology and magic flawlessly together.
  • Sarn   Incredibly intelligent humanoids that are reliant on a useful, but off-putting cybernetic frame.
  • Schizovores  Constructs that broke free from their masters and want to spread liberty across the universe.
  • Shogran  Humanoids guided by tradition and who wear the bones of their ancestors at all times
  • Tordax Small, yet surprisingly powerful humanoids that can affect minds with their hums... and their shouts.
  • Uavaryon  Beings locked into an exoskeleton who can freely rotate each of their appendages at will.

Choqua entry reminded me of an angry Foghorn Leghorn. I think I'll make one and name him that, just because. :D

Still reading through the book, though on initial scan I'm liking the way each entry has information on it's homeworld, history, interactions with other races. Gives some extra meat to the product.

While I am a fan of the early Kirby artwork, the overall 'comic book look' feels overdone in this product. It takes it from 'cool new races to use' to 'meh, toss a giant angry chicken at the party, let's see what happens'.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it may be a turn off to some folks. There are some very interesting races present, a couple that I expect I'll use as foils against my players, just to have them wonder what the hell just hit them. lol

The Choqua were one of the last races I wrote, and my thought when I first saw the image was "This is gonna be a Snake Plissken/Foghorn Leghorn mashup!"

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
