Design sketches for the Stars in Shadow game project.
The Ashdar are a reptiloid race (composed of at least two sub-species: the plucky Teros [pictured], and the taller Haduir) whose forebears once commanded a galaxy-spanning empire prior to the collapse of the warp lanes. As interstellar travel is restored, the remnants of this empire are now scattered factions. The colonial faction, led by Praetor Yunki
, has established a new capital on the garden world of Rastaban. The Ashdar are superb pilots and have an affinity for carrier warfare.
As the Humans in this setting are a somewhat extreme group, the Ashdar (despite being Space Dinosaurs) serve the role of the protagonist or "normal" race.
