The Ashati - A Plague Rat Species


After the cataclysmic events caused by the God Comet and the genocide it wrought upon their people, the Ashati underwent a profound transformation. Driven by a single focus in life, their purpose became clear, to seek revenge on those responsible for the massacre of their brethren and to reclaim their planet from the surface-dwelling species.

Despite the surface-dwellers' belief that the war is over and the Ashati have been defeated, the truth is quite different. The Ashati continue to toil tirelessly in the shadows, contributing to the war effort with unwavering dedication. They amass poisons, craft powerful weapons, and create terrible spells, all in preparation for the day when they will rise again and ensure victory lies with them.

Hidden beneath the surface, the Ashati bide their time, lying in wait for the opportune moment to strike. Their thirst for revenge and their unwavering determination fuel their desire to emerge victorious in their long-awaited conflict with the surface dwellers.

Included in this document is:

  • A subterranean poison loving species: The Ashati.
  • Full lore and history for both the race and their home system.
  • 1 Sub species: The Pariah.
  • 5 new poisons, compatible with The Poisoners Handbook (link below)

Very minor issue, but on page 6, the right-side column has slid off the page, and is unreadable. Other than that, this is a lovely race, and one I'm definitely going to populate my games with!

Thank you for your kind words, this error should be fixed now. Also we would LOVE to hear stories of what you do with the Ashati, please come back and tell us all about it. We put these things out in the world and wonder what people are doing with them all the time. Also if you had the time to spare a review would be very appreciated :)

Thanks again!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
