Design sketches for the Stars in Shadow game project
The Yoral are relative newcomers on the galactic stage. The survivors of a climactic shift that blanketed their homeworld in ice several thousand years ago, the Yoral have proven surprisingly adaptable. Though their technology is comparatively primitive, it is extraordinarily durable, and their settlers will happily colonize worlds considered marginal or even uninhabitable by most 'civilized' races. Blunt and direct, the Yoral could be stubborn enemies or steadfast allies -- but they clearly have little patience for politicking of any sort.
