Species Special Abilities:
Mood Detection: Because of their skills at reading the electromagnetic auras of others, Gotals receive bonuses (or penalties) when engaging in interactive skills with other characters. The Gotal makes a Moderate Perception roll and adds the following bonus to all Perception skills when making opposed rolls for the rest of the encounter.
Roll Misses Difficulty by:
6 or more
Roll Beats Difficulty by:
15 or more
Energy Sensitivity: Because Gotals are unusually sensitive to radiation emissions, they receive a +3D to their search skill when hunting such targets that are within 10 kilometers in open areas (such as deserts and open plains). When in crowded areas (such as cities and dense jungles) the bonus drops to +1D and the range to less than one kilometer. However, in areas with intense radiation, Gotals suffer a -1D penalty to search because their senses are overwhelmed by radiation static. Fast Initiative: Gotals who are not suffering from radiation static receive a +1D bonus when rolling initiative against non-Gotal opponents because of their ability to read the emotions of others.
Story Factors: Reputation: Because of the Gotals' reputation as beings overly sensitive to moods and felings, other species are uncomfortable dealing with them. This often hurts them in matters of haggling, as any species who knows their reputation will not put themselves in a situation where any dealings must take place. Assign modifiers as appropriate. Droid Hate: Gotals suffer a -1D to all Perception based skill rolls when within three meters of a droid, due to the electromagnetic emissions produced by the droid's circuitry. Because of this, a Gotal's opinion of droids will range from dislike to hate, and they will attempt to avoid droids if possible.
