° STR d8: (3) Montharoe are very powerful.
° VIG d6: (2) And remarkably hearty.
° Size+2: (2) Toughness+2. They stand head and shoulders over even a large human, and are twice as wide also.
° Claws and Teeth: (1) Their natural weapons from being apex predators give them +d6 damage in bare handed fighting and they are never Unarmed.
° Scaley Hide: (1) Natural Armor 2, affected by AP.
° Lumbering: (-2) Their large mass makes them less graceful. -1 to AGI rolls.
° Learning Difficulty: (-2) SMA cost double to raise at character creation.
° Illiterate: (-1) Their brains didn’t evolve to understand written language well. This is mediated by their internal nano computers though, so it’s really more like being a slow and deliberate reader as their AI servant reads to them.
° Dietary Requirements: (-1) Montharoe need double the amount of food as normal, and at least half of it must be meat. Synth/cloned meat is okay, but vegatable protiens will not suffice.
° Racial Quirk: (-1) They generally have a sort of “big brother/sister” attitude towards the other, mostly smaller races of the galaxy. This stems from their species habit of communal child raising. All the montharoe in a community help to care for, teach, and discipline the children of that community. This is why montharoe surnames are the place name of where they grew up rather than a family or clan/tribe name.
