Tentative ideas for PC races in Myoshima (and Patera in general)

by Giampaolo Agosta

Rakasta subraces
We have the Domestic (civilised, more peaceful), Alley Rakasta (standard breeds), Sherkasta and Cloud Pardasta (Rajahstan?, Surabayang), Black Pardasta (Rajahstan) and Mountain Rakasta (barbarians) breeds.

These Domestic types may appear, especially in Selimpore and Kompor-Thap:
