Homebrew Reference Book: Clone Wars Saga Edition Fan Sourcebook - Species

The Equani are a very large Species evolved from predators on their homeworld of Equanus. Though most Equani appear incredibly large and fierce, they tend to be gentle-souled beings more interested in high culture. As a species, they are incredibly adept at sensing emotions, and many put this ability to work in various fields such as psychology. Unfortunately, just before the Clone Wars, a mysterious solar flare incinerated all life on Equanus, leaving the Species represented by only the few thousand Equani that were off-world at the time. The Species’ extinction is considered imminent, and in the wake of the Clone Wars’ eruption, many theories have surfaced regarding the destruction of the empathic Species; ranging from Republic super-laser weapon tests to a number of other conspiracy theories.

Equani Species Traits Edit

Equani share the following Species Traits:

  • Ability Modifiers: All Equani receive a +2 bonus to their Charisma. Equani can easily see what effect their words have on those around them, giving them exceptional people skills.

The target cannot detect this check.
