|#1choleric_psionMar 26, 2004 14:22:46||In issue 297 of Dragon Magazine there was an article about planetouched. It listed the Para-Elemental Planetouched and the Axani and Cansin. What I would like to know is; did Dragon just create the Axani and Cansin or were these two races found in Planesacpe products from 2nd Ed.? I also would like to know the reason why these two races weren't included in planewalker.com's list of planescape races?|
|#2Shemeska_the_MarauderMar 26, 2004 14:48:31||Far as I know, they weren't in 2e Planescape stuff|
|#3primemover003Mar 27, 2004 13:59:18||No, they were completely new... I think they should be the Planewalker Lawful and Chaotic Planetouched myself. I think the Chaond and the Zenythri are just plain dumb...|

Could you elaborate? Why do you find the Axani & Cansin superior to the Zenythri and Chaond? (I don't have a copy of the Dragon mag in question, so I can't easily compare them myself.)
Also, when did the Chaond and Zenythri first make their appearance? For that matter, where did the Tualhadra (sp?) originate?

I believe that they made their first appearance in the second Monster Manual for the 3.0 edition. I don't remember seeing them scattered into any of the other products, and the Dragon magazine versions of those planetouched races had only been the Axani and Cansin.
|#6Shemeska_the_MarauderMar 31, 2004 21:50:41||Yep, they first popped up from WotC in MM II as I recall. Then I got handed them with the rilmani touched race, that I shall not even attempt to spell, on a silver platter and told to fit them in as appropriate for the Sigil material. Wasn't too hard, though I havn't used them myself in any games of my own (though if the campaign went to limbo or mechanus I'd work them in).|
