Weird Revisited: Reskinned!

The original version of this post appeared in May of 2012...

The usual D&D races getting more than a little stale? Just give them a makeover and keep the old mechanics.  Try these knew visuals on for size:

For Elves:
Insect(-ish) men.

For Halflings:
Satyr-like guys.

For Half-Orcs:
Hairy hominids.

For Warforged:

Okay, that last one may be a bit of a stretch, but only a little.

Mildly depressing that I owned every one of those comics as a kid. Even Sectaurs. Lovely Mike Golden cover on Rom, there.

I recognize the satyr-dude, but can’t for the life of me remember who/what he that a Dreadstar character?

Sectaurs was one of this really weird ideas that probably went too far with their theme (bug people that ride bugs and have bugs for pets, etc). I thought the concept worked just fine with Marvel’s Micronauts. But kind of a strange idea for a toy line.

Actually I don’t have a clue about the third image...Komandi?

Man, I loved Rom back in the day.

Trey said...

The satyr guy is from Adam Warlock. The Kirby image is from Devil Dinosaur.

Cross Planes said...

The satyr is Pip the Troll.

Awesome! I had almost all of those as a kid!
