Here's another stab I'm having at converting some Species from WotCs Iron Lords of Jupiter
setting. Lizard was the original creator of the setting.
In ILOJ, Jupiter is an inhabited Pulp Sci-Fi World (bit like Mongo in Flash Gordon or Pandora in Avatar). The atmosphere is breathable and gravity is normal. Humans transported there by accident believe this is due to some unexplaned spacial anomaly.
There are a number of intelligent native species (Groll, Marikon, Targul and Veith) and a wide range of animal lifeforms. Technology and Society are similar to our medieval times, though some high tech items like flying ships and rayguns exist.
I though it would be interesting to put this setting into FC (or MC). Anyway, here is the first Species conversion.....Groll
You are a Groll, part of a race of barbarians found almost anywhere across the surface of Jupiter. Some of your kind are nomadic herdsmen roaming the arid deserts of that world, others are savage tribesmen of the Scarlet Jungles. Many of you have been enslaved by the Marikon overlords as bodyguards, labourers and warriors.
Physically, you have the heavily muscled frame of your race. Atop your shoulders sits your head, a solid mass. You do not have a neck as humans know it. On your face solid black eyes sit above a simple slit mouth and you have no nose or visible ears.
Even though your kind is often oppressed, you value one thing most of all and will do whatever to obtain it: Your Freedom !!!Common Personality Traits:
Ill-Tempered, Forgiving, Loyal, Vengeful.Common Physical Traits

For the xxxxxxxxxx entry, I'm trying to think of someway of covering the Grolls natural strong fortitude which helps them survive in the varied environments of Jupiter.
*** EDIT: Substitued Bonus Feat (Great Fortitude) instead of the xxxxxxx entry ***
Any comments welcome.
