Star Wars: Wookiee Origin for Stars Without Number


They were a species of tall, hairy humanoids that were native to the planet Kashyyyk. They were quite strong and were known to rip people's arms out of their sockets when provoked. Though being from a temperate planet better known for its swamps and forests, they were able to be comfortable on icy worlds such as Ilum and Hoth without any protective clothing, including gloves and boots.

Wookiees had extendable claws which they used for climbing; using them for anything else violated the Wookiee honor code. Despite their fearsome appearance and volatile temperament, Wookiees were regarded as intelligent, sophisticated, loyal, and trusting. When angered, Wookiees were known to descend into a berserker rage.
Wookiees had a long lifespan, appearing not to age over a span of fifty years. They could learn to understand other languages, like Galactic Basic, but they were physically unable to speak them. To those who had not learned to understand Shyriiwook, the Wookiee language, it appeared they spoke in a series of growls and purrs. 

Level 1
A wookiee gains Punch as a bonus skill and they gain a +1 bonus to their Strength modifier, up to a maximum of +3.

Level 2
They deal +1 Shock with melee weapons if the Armor Class is not too high to be affected and they gain Exert as a bonus skill.
