Heya folks! I've got a small handful of requests for all of you lovely folks...

What I'm wanting are stat blocks for them both as opponents and playable characters. LA and RHD aren't an issue in the slightest.
Anyway, the two races I would like to request are the Shokan (http://mortalkombat.wikia.com/wiki/Shokan) and the Tarkata. (http://mortalkombat.wikia.com/wiki/Tarkata) They're both - for those of you who haven't played any Mortal Kombat games - rather beastly races. I would also like to see a hybrid of the two of them if that's within your capabilities and reason - I hope I'm not asking to much!

I'm sorry that this is such a large request, but this is something that my group and I have wanted for quite some time. Thank you to whoever decides to takes up the task of creating these :smallsmile:

Thri-Kreen might be an initial building point for Shokan. Id say Orc for Tarkata, with the added bite and blade attacks.

While these are helpful suggestions, I'm not the greatest at brewing things :smallfrown:
The class I've got listed in my signature was just a quick smash-up of two classes, and that was a pain in the buttocks for me regardless of the help I obtained.

Okay, let me think.


Shokan

+4 Str, -2 Dex, -2 Int, +2 Cha. Shokan are strong and aggressive, using brute force to dominate those weaker than them. However, they are clumsy and not too smart.
Monstrous Humanoid: Shokan are not subject to spells or effects that affect humanoids only, such as charm person or dominate person. they also have the Dragonblooded subtype.
Medium: As Medium creatures, shokan have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Shokan base land speed is 30 feet.
Darkvision out to 60 feet.
+2 Natural Armor: A Shokan's hide is tough and resistant to blows.
Multiple Limbs: Shokan have four arms.
Racial Hit Dice: A shokan's character begins with two levels of monstrous humanoid, which provide 2d8 Hit Dice, a base attack bonus of +2, and base saving throw bonuses of Fort +0, Ref +3, and Will +3.
Racial Skills: A Shokan's monstrous humanoid levels give him skill points equal to 5 (2 + Int modifier). His class skills are Jump, Intimidate, Listen, Spot and Survival.
Skilled Grappler: Due to the extra limbs and racial training in close quarters combat, Shokan roll twice for grapple attempts, taking the better of the two checks.
Top Heavy: due to their extra mass on their torso, they are slightly top heavy. Shokan suffer a -2 racial penalty on all balance checks.
Automatic Languages: Common, Shokan. Bonus Languages: Any
Favored Class: Monk
Level Adjustment: +1.



Tarkata

+2 Dex, +2 Int, -2 Cha. Tarkata are intelligent half-breeds of humans and fiends, using their natural quickness of both body and mind to rise in the ranks of their society. They typically are very cruel and unfriendly.
Native Outsider: Tarkata are not subject to spells or effects that affect humanoids only, such as charm person or dominate person.
Medium: As Medium creatures, tarkata have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Tarkata base land speed is 30 feet.

If I could, I would hug you right now - these are beautiful! :smallbiggrin: Thank you so much, you've done great.

Something like a duskblade? Or was it a beguiler...
The one that can cast magic while wearing armor, I can't recall the name.

Tarkata should technically have a LA +1, now that I think about it.

Okay everybody, I hate to do this to ya'll, but I've got a few more requests. Sorry! On the bright side: these are the last of the MK requests!

The next requests are Saurians, (http://mortalkombat.wikia.com/wiki/Saurian) Centaurians (http://mortalkombat.wikia.com/wiki/Centaurian), and Shao Kahn. (http://mortalkombat.wikia.com/wiki/Shao_Kahn)

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I don't know how exactly Shao Kahn will work out, so if he's too big of a problem don't worry about him.

Shao Kahn isnt his own race. he is an elder god, brother to raiden and son of Shinnok. (at least in some of the mythos)

I knew he was Raiden's brother, I didn't know he was Shinnok's son though. The wiki said "Overworlder" which was quite odd. I don't like a majority of the wiki, but it's the only place I could get a decent sum of information on them. *shrugs*

Centaurians, like Motaro, are basically D&D's centaur with a tail attack and a pair of capricorn horns.

two secondary natural attacks, adding to the base centaur and you're good.

Sounds simple enough. Would their LA or RHD change any?

Saurians could use Lizardfolk as a base, adding in a spell like ability to render itself invisible 3/day as well as an ability to appear as if they are made of stone. (you might steal the gargoyle's freeze ability while he's doing it)

maybe an acid spit attack (acid splash 3/day).

LA would increase by 1.

no problem. not too many seemed interested in helping (except my friend Redwarlock, who helped on Shokan and Tarkata). figured it would be fun to do.

I'd noticed that to :smallsigh: It appears that homebrewers have all started their summer vacations.
The two of you have my thanks :smallsmile: both of those races came out prefect.

Edit: I just looked into your brew and came across deep orcs. I love them!
