The Crawni of Craw (Spinward Marches 1939) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance and technologically primitive sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Roughly humanoid, adapted to life on Craw's rugged outback, oxygen poor atmosphere, and a hot arid environment. Tough, leathery skin with little evaporation to avoid loosing water. Large barrel chest with oversized lungs and more efficient oxygen extraction. Also possess a short, thick tail for balance. Fingers and toes are equipped with rough knobby tips to aid in climbing. They have large eyes with two eyelids: one a nicitating membrane to shield from strong light, the other to keep out particles of sand. Hearing and smell are both better than a humans. They have a preference for working at night but are not strictly nocturnal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]
