Pathfinder RPG (1st Edition) Starfinder RPG Pathfinder RPG (2nd Edition)


The Starfinder Roleplaying Game is about more than just meeting aliens—it’s also about playing alien characters. In Starfinder, the word “race” usually refers to an intelligent, selfaware species whose members can be considered characters rather than simple monsters. While not all races are appropriate for player characters, many of them are; any creature with a racial traits entry is a member of a potentially playable race, provided that your GM approves it.

Kish are the descendants of the kishalee, an advanced civilization that ruled the stars millennia ago, though they have lost any firm grasp of kishalee mystical and technological innovations. In the floating metropolis of Istamak, kish live among the ruins of their ancestors’ civilization.
Kish are tall humanoids with three eyes and long, powerful limbs. They have sharp-toothed mandibles and smooth, hairless heads. Kish skin color ranges from gray to sky blue, with gradations in hue across their bodies. There is little variation between kish genders, though kish can easily tell males from females by subtle differences in the shape of the central eye.
Kish tend to congregate into tribes that are led by either the strongest or the wisest of their number. Some kish tribes pass leadership peacefully among themselves, while others put potential leaders to a test of might or wits—or both.
