White Star: Dralasite


Armor Class: 7 [12]
Hit Dice: 1+1
Total Hit Bonus: +1
Attacks: Pseudopod (1d6-1) or by weapon
Saving Throw: 17
Special: Amorphous
Movement: 6
HDE/XP: 1/15

   A dralasite's body can be altered in significant ways, but may choose one bonus per turn: by creating more legs, their Movement improves 9; by creating more arms, their pseudopod damage improves to 1d8; by narrowing their bodies, their AC improves to 6 [13].
   Dralasites are short, rubbery aliens that have no bones or hard body parts. Their skin is a flexible membrane that is very tough and scratchy. It generally is dull gray and lined with dark veins that meet at the dralasite's two eyespots. The internal structure of a dralasite is very different from the other races. The dralasite's central nerve bundle (brain), numerous small hearts and other internal organs float in a pudding-like mixture of protein and organic fluids. Dralasites breathe by absorbing oxygen directly through their skin, so they have no lungs. They are omnivores, but eat by surrounding their food and absorbing it, so they also have no digestive tract or intestines.

   All dralasites go through male, female and neutral stages during their lives (they may choose to control these phases with pharmaceuticals). Males release spores into the air, which drift until they become attached to a female. A young dralasite then sprouts from its mother, eventually maturing and dropping off.
