New Stretch Goal - Gnorri as Playable Race!

26 likes

After a strange vision this man published a tale of Carter’s vanishing, in which he hinted that the lost one now reigned as king on the opal throne of Ilek-Vad, that fabulous town of turrets atop the hollow cliffs of glass overlooking the twilight sea wherein the bearded and finny Gnorri build their singular labyrinths.” (Through the Gates Of the Silver Key; H. P. Lovecraft & E. Hoffman Price)

Gnorri are amphibious Dreamlands ‘merfolk’ that are fully playable on land as well as in the sea. While some have two arms, many have three or four arms, giving them many exciting combat options and access to exotic weapons. In the book, we will explore the full potential of this humanoid-hybrid as a playable character race in Pathfinder.

These amphibious beings are able to survive on both water and land, and carve out extensive grottos into coastlands. They are perfectly able to communicate with and interact with other species in a friendly manner, and when they do have conflicts with humans, for example, it is resolved in human fashion, with a war or a negotiation. Their extensive access to undersea treasures makes them desirable trading partners.

      Stretch goal done with 8 more days to go can't wait to see what we blow away in the last week. Especially in the final day or so when things get crazy again.

      @William Ashley Wow, I wasn't aware that Sandy Petersen had helped to create such a fascinating and imaginative book! (I'll have to see if I can get one myself now. :D ) Still, I like the non-human look of this one, though I agree that they should have tried to work in the beard and fins. I'm imagining a Gnorri/Gnor in my head with fins on its arms and back and with a beard of tendril-like cillia.

      (Now the art from the original Creatures of the Dreamlands (which occupies a proud if battered place in my collection to this day), that was an awesome Gnor.)

      @Philip, yeah, that miniature -- both finless and beardless -- continues to confuse me. ^.^

      Nice, I think this will be the final stretch goal we hit as time is running out but it's a good one to hit all things considered.

      I wonder what Gnorri's beards look like. O_O
