Atlantis Fate: Characters

Step One: Choose Your Race

A race in Fate provides a number of aspects. Choose at least one but not more than two, and you can also make your own if you want to. Your race also gives you a racial skill in a few different flavors, which give you extra uses of your racial skill. Slot your racial skill into whichever empty slot on the pyramid appeals to you and pick the flavor that most appeals to you. You can take additional flavors of your racial skill as if they were stunts.

Ahl-At-Rab

Called Lizard Men, Snake Men, and Saurians, the Ahl-At-Rab live in the wastelands and barren places of the world. They are an ancient people, descended from the Second Root Race, the Ophidians, and they are warlike and stoic in their manner.

You may use the Ahl-At-Rab skill to survive in desert conditions, control trained sand dragons, and blind an enemy with your acid spit. In addition, pick one of the following flavors; you may pick more at the cost of one stunt or refresh each.

  • Sand Devil Warrior: When you succeed (or succeed with style) at using Fists and Feet to make an attack, you can treat your roll as being two shifts higher than it actually was.

Extra: Blood of the Andaman

If the exposure continues, or if it was a particularly large exposure, it can cause consequences which will seriously injure you.
  • Create an Advantage: Use your racial skill to create an advantage with animals of your same ilk. If you mix some of your blood with milk and feed it to the animal, you can create a permanent advantage giving you a special bond with that particular animal.

The racial skill for Andamen depends on their specific sub-species. There are also two new aspects for each sub-species that can be chosen as racial aspects.
