Energon[edit]

An energon is the manifestation of pure life, and either creates or destroys it. Master healers, that act in many ways as a positive or negative energy elemental. Players who do not want to be spellcasters, but want strong healing (or harming) abilities typically chose to become energon.

Personality[edit]

There is no middle ground, energon are either pure positive or negative energy. Positive energons are colloquially called “Pos” and Negative energons are called “Neg”.

Physical Description[edit]

An energon is a small-sized creature, without lower limbs; they have a humanoid torso and arms – and float five feet off the ground. An energon’s head is composed of many diamond-like shapes (but still mostly humanoid). An energon is either white (Pos) or black (Neg).

Relations[edit]

Pos are liked far and wide, while Neg are feared by all but the undead.

Alignment[edit]

Technically, an energon can be any pure alignment. But most Pos are pure Good and Neg pure Evil (yet there are deviant Evil Pos and Good Neg).

Lands[edit]

Energon come from the planet of Lian in the Golbez System.

Religion[edit]

Many energon worship the goddess Celesdra, or other protection deities. While an equal number worship destructive and neutral deities.

Language[edit]

All energon can speak Common, Abyssal, Auran, Celestial and Infernal.

Names[edit]

Energons generally take on verbs as names (i.e., heal).

Racial Traits[edit]

  • -2 Strength, +2 Constitution, +2 Wisdom, +2 Charisma: Energons are physically weak, but strong of body and will, and their abilities make them well liked.
  • Elemental (Xenoblooded): The elemental type gives the following effects:
    • Singularity: Unlike most other living creatures, an elemental does not have a dual nature—its soul and body form one unit. When an elemental is slain, no soul is set loose. Spells that restore souls to their bodies, such as raise dead, reincarnate, and resurrection, don’t work on an elemental. It takes a different magical effect, such as limited wish, wish, miracle, or true resurrection, to restore it to life.
    • Immunity to disease, paralysis, poison and death effects.
    • Energons do not eat, sleep, or breathe.
  • Small: As a Small creature, an energon gains a +1 size bonus to Armor Class, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –4 size penalty on special attack (bull rushes, grapples, overruns, and trips) checks, and a +4 size bonus on Hide checks, but it uses smaller weapons than humans use, and its lifting and carrying limits are three-quarters of those of a Medium character.
  • Slight Build (Ex): The physical stature of energons lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category smaller. Whenever an energon is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as Hide), the energon is treated as one size smaller if doing so is advantageous to the character. An energon is also considered to be one size smaller when "squeezing" through a restrictive space. An energon can use weapons designed for a creature one size smaller without penalty. However, the space and reach of an energon remain those of a creature of their actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject's size category.
  • Movement Speed: Energons have a hover (good) speed of 30’.
  • Darkvision: An energon can see in the dark up to 40 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and an energon can function just fine with no light at all.
  • Low-Light Vision: An energon can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. She retains the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.

Vital Statistics[edit]

An energon cannot die from old age. All energons are gender-less.
