Nashi

Using the Nashi

While the nashi are designed to be usable just about anywhere in your campaign setting, some places certainly stand out based on their ancestral flavor. They make particularly good additions to any location that you want to feel “electropunk” or “steampunk” in theme, as their love of tinkering and their plethora of fantasy firearms makes them easy additions to such areas. They’re also excellent choices when you need characters who’ll put innovation and discovery before ethics or who’ll “dig too deep” into secrets better left forgotten.

Firearms?!

As you read more about nashi, it’ll likely make perfect sense that this ancestral group resembling anthropomorphic raccoons innovated firearms, but some GMs don’t care for this type of weapon. The firearms in this book are designed to be close in power to the weapons, but if your GM doesn’t like firearms, its perfectly okay to use the ancestry without the weaponry. When doing so, feats that apply to firearms apply to weapons in the crossbow weapon group instead.


Known for their ingenuity and innovative approach to problem-solving, nashi are often a welcome sight in the eyes of most species. Whether master engineers or skilled spellcasters, nashi have cultivated a reputation for excellence that makes their goods welcome in nearly every port. They are a quick-thinking and hardy folk who value hard work and creativity, but they also have a reputation for overcomplicating simple matters and they’re prone to wasting countless hours recreating the wheel if left unchecked.

Note: Nashi possess their own, unique language called Nashi that has its roots in Sylvan. While Nashi as a spoken language isn’t particularly noteworthy among languages, as a written language Nashi is reportedly the easiest language to learn to read and write, to the extent that its inventor once boasted that even an orc could learn the language in the span of 10 days. This is due to its intuitive design—in Nashi, syllables are written in a way that indicates how each sound is produced. Nashi names tend to be strange, neigh unpredictable combinations of traditional Nashi words and words from other languages, particularly Common.

Physical Description

Nashi are short, stocky plantigrade humanoids whose body is covered in thick fur that often makes them appear stouter then they are. Although viewed as a disparaging remark by the nashi, the term “raccoon folk” does aptly summarize a typical nashi’s appearance, as they possess furred bodies, long tails, mask-and-ring fur patterns, and nailed digits. Nashi fur patterns come in a variety of colors that resembles those of both raccoons and manguts, including shades of gray, black, brown, and tan. Nashi cannot grow hair on their heads aside from their fur coat, but often grow out and style the fur on their heads in ways not unlike those used by humans on their hair.

Nashi have extremely sensitive hands and paws, a trait that is more pronounced when submerged in water. Nashi are capable of effortlessly distinguishing physical features and properties by touch, and are known to be able to accurately judge all manner of information regarding a creature’s appearance save for color with nothing but a brief grazing of their fingertips. Their small bodies and dexterous fingers also make nashi adept at a number of tasks involving physical coordination and manipulation, but their true marvel is the size of their brains, which are slightly (but noticeably) larger in proportion to the rest of their bodies compared to many other humanoid species, including humans. This has led to a stereotype that all nashi are extraordinarily intelligent, and while they are certainly fast learners and quick thinkers they aren’t so much so that they outshine other objectively intelligent species, such as elves or gnomes.

Life Cycle

Nashi children are born live after a gestation period of nine months, with twins being almost twice as common significantly more acute, especially on their palms and the bottom of their feet. Nashi are able to canvas an extremely detailed mental picture of the ground simply by walking over it with their bare feet, and can accurately identify most stimuli that are in direct contact with their hands by size, weight, and shape using only their sense of touch. In addition to being more precise than a human’s sense of touch, a nashi’s sense of touch can accurately detect stimuli as small as a single grain of pollen. As a result nashi are extremely insistent about proper hygiene, as they can sense irritants on their hands and feet that most humans wouldn’t have even known existed, let alone were present on their bodies.

Culture

Nashi culture emphasizes personal agency, creativity, and hard work, and most nashi strive to include all three of these tenants in everything they do. Nashi society often places strenuous pressure on its individuals to build a lasting legacy for themselves before they die, and these demands tend to become more and more exuberant with each passing generation, as nashi society tends to look down on those who can’t surpass the accomplishments of their forbearers. As a result, those who partake in nashi culture often seem frantic and constantly stressed for success.

Life

Curiosity defines nashi from the moment they open their eyes for the first time, and that same curiosity is a driving force throughout their lives. Compared to other species, nashi enroll their children in school at a young age and their curriculums focused on giving the youngling the skills they need to answer life’s questions for themselves rather than rote memorization. Nashi are encouraged to dabble in a variety of topics in youth until they find a field that calls to them, be it mathematics or martial arts. Shortly after their 10th birthday, young nashi formally choose their area of study at a large social gathering known as a Celebration of Calling. Once decided, these young nashi are expected to seek out part-time apprenticeships and focus their schooling on topics related to their chosen field. While it isn’t impossible for nashi to change their calling once they’ve formally announced it, changing one’s calling is something of a social stigma among nashi and stereotypes the individual as being flaky or unable to sound judgments regarding their personal skills and expertise.

While nashi have family units, they tend to be less pronounced than those of other species. While nashi families love and support one another, their culture is one of fierce independence and stiff competition and those less than ideal traits sometimes rear their ugly heads in family life too. Nashi meritocracy encourages individuals to vie for social status at any cost, and this unfortunately includes family. It is depressingly common for otherwise loving nashi families to tear themselves apart over matters of business and personal legacy should multiple family members engage in similar professions independently, so many nashi logically choose fields of study that overlap very little with those of their family members to avoid rivalry and infighting. When nashi families do focus on a shared field of study, they often do so by banding together into a literal family business or research unit with the head of the family acting as lead. While this often negates any chance of the family imploding under its own quest for social status, families that work together in this capacity often struggle to keep their work separate from their home life, which is a major reason that so many nashi prefer to walk separate paths from their families in the first place.

Architecture

Nashi architecture is ornate and intricate in appearance, often featuring a dazzling combination of metal and glass supplemented by sturdy stone foundations covered with glazed clay mosiacs. Distinctive archways cradle door frames and stained glass windows, which are typically arranged in fanciful patterns, and both interior and exterior walls are often painted in bright, striking color combinations. Nashi architects are famous for building using a variety of geographic shapes with plenty of angles in their room design; and hexagonal towers with bell-shaped or conical roofs are staples of their style. Nashi often construct their buildings with ceilings that are high by human standards, and every building is expected to have at least one resource center stocked with dozens of books and whatever reference materials that the building’s owner can afford. Most buildings are outfitted with accommodations for the latest feats of nashi engineering, and renovations to make accommodations for the latest mechanical trend is commonplace among nashi with the means to do so.

Clothing

Nashi clothing appears incredibly piecemeal in terms of style and stitch work, and in most cases such eventually are accurate. As a race of innovators motivated almost entirely by the discovery of the “next, greatest thing”, nashi fashion goes through fads not from season by season, but week to week, and fads consist of anything from colors and patterns to fundamental styles of stitch work and clothing type.

Because fashion changes so quickly in nashi society, only the wealthiest nashi can truly afford to stay up to date on the latest styles and trends while the rest are left with dozens of garments that simply don’t match should they try to keep up. As a result, many nashi end up trying to find specific garments that they find comfortable and pleasing, working to create individual outfits from whatever parts they happen across and combining disparate elements into an aesthetic whole. Of course, should such a style become trendy as often is the case, the parts of that piecemeal outfits could lead to the next baffling nashi fashion trend.

Communities & Nations

To outsiders, nashi society is often seen as rushed and volatile due to its constituents’ obsession with unrelenting progress. A meritocracy at its core, nashi strive to advance and perfect everything from technology to policy to social justice, and while this often proves a blessing to those seeking freedom from oppression or creative freedom, a distinct lack of conservative voices challenging nashi progressivism on whether proposed innovations are necessary or practical occasionally causes nashi progressives to circle backwards on policy, especially regarding issues like taxation, immigration, and foreign policy. While nashi governments are fairly persistent, individual regimes collapse regularly, with the past four generations experiencing an average of 100 government shut downs and 32 collapses during their lifetime due to overspending and political quagmires. Nashi meritocracy is similarly susceptible to political strongmen who successfully convince the public that their brand of tyranny is the most pragmatic path for the community, and their society often sees at least one such tyrant every generation or so. Recently nashi leaders have begun incorporating a council of members of other species into their cabinets as advisors, and data suggests that governments who have made this switch have record-low tumultuousness spanning decades, but fascism remains an ever-constant threat for their political future.

Cuisine

Nashi cuisine reflects its culture’s insistence upon innovation as opposed to invention, blending the culinary styles of dozens of different species and their ethnic groups into fusion distinctly their own. As a result, nashi communities tend to have dramatically different cooking styles from one another, as each community’s cooking is informed by neighboring species. If nashi food has one defining feature, its that many of the foodstuffs that nashi use in their cooking are developed using food processing techniques that they’ve innovated and engineered using numerous techniques, with some dishes becoming completely lost to time as the machines once used to create them fall into obsolescence. Much as how nashi clothing styles fall into and out of fashion at a rapid pace, so too do various cooking styles and dishes. One particular dish that has persisted for nearly a century despite this is ringtail pie, a dish similar to shepherd’s pie save that five different “rings” of meats and vegetables are arranged like rings on a tree from the pie’s center to its exterior, making every bite a delightful surprise.

Relations With Others

Although they get along well with members of most other races, nashi tend to internalize erroneous conclusions about other cultures and species based on information gained from first- or even second-hand contact. This tendency is of no insult among nashi, as they hold little qualm about revising previously held facts with new information. This often isn’t true for members of other species, however, and as a result nashi are prone to accidentally offending others through incorrectly drawn conclusions regarding others that range from simple mistakes to offensive slights or bizarre claims. As a result, nashi tend to get along poorly with people who offend easily.

Trade

Although nashi society boasts more scientific researchers and applied scientists than any other species’ society, the majority of their population occupies more traditional trades such as carpentry and metallurgy. Whatever field they choose to enter, nashi are famous for using state of the art technologies in their field. Sometimes these innovations prove a boon and result in highly valued products. For example, nashi carpenters are noteworthy for their ergonomic designs that make many of their furniture more comfortable compared to those of other species. In other cases, nashi innovation seems different for the sake of being different. For example, nashi blacksmiths often practice their trade using electrically-charged furnaces, but since these devices don’t melt or set metal any quicker than a traditional forge they’re largely considered a novelty by other crafters.

Ethnic Groups

Several notable ethnic groups exist among nashi, as noted below.

  • Culo: Sometimes called monochrome nashi because they predominately have fur coats in shades of gray and black, culo nashi are an adaptive people that make their home all across the world. Where other nashi ethnic groups have firmly rooted cultural identities and traditions, culo nashi tend to blend in with the cultures of their neighbors, often going out of their way to bring members of other species into their settlements in order to study their culture, traditions, and technologies, adapting what they like and discarding what they don’t.
  • Syanni: Compared to the muted, earthy tones of other nashi, the bright reds and oranges of a syanni nashi’s fur stands in stark contrast to that of other nashi. Preferring to live away from large urban centers in quiet, rural areas, other nashi unfairly stereotype syanni as bumpkins for choosing to abstain from other ethnic group’s work-centric values, instead valuing self-care and personal fulfillment.
  • Tanukun: Possessing fur coats peppered in shades of brown, fulvous, and gray, tanukun nashi are named after tanuki, a type of magical shapeshifter. According to legend, the tanukun nashi descend from a nashi hero who saved a dying tanuki and nursed them back to health. As payment, the tanuki swore to protect the hero and their family. In doing so, the hero and their family developed physical features resembling those of tanuki, such as speckled fur in shades of brown, fulvous, and brown.
  • Zumei: Known for their seafaring culture, the zumei are best known for the sharp band of black fur that encircles their necks and for fur coats, which are flecked with golden yellow fur that culminates in a predominately golden yellow tail. Zumei culture places high importance on the sea and its bounty, and many zumei are skilled sailors for fish or transport goods for a living. Their engineers focus on improving sailing technology, making it faster and safer however possible.

Origins

Nashi origin myths are somewhat uninspired when compared to those of other species, as they are far more interested in societal advancement than mythology and seeing as no culture’s origin mythology has ever been confirmed or denied by the gods, they consider such tales to be a waste of time.

Nashi Adventurers

Nashi are most often driven to adventure by their natural curiosity, which inspires them to go out into the world and learn all they can so they can improve upon their work and the work of others. Nashi can be cold, seemingly obsessed with their own thoughts and theorems, but few would argue that their presence is without benefit.

Typical backgrounds for nashi include artisan, artist, bounty hunter, criminal, farmhand, sailor, scholar, scout, street urchin, and tinker. Nashi make great alchemists and wizards, but many also become rangers or rogues.

Tanuki-Born Nashi

Few nashi actually possess tanuki heritage, as tanuki are powerful magical tricksters that seldom court mortals.

Change Shape [one-action]

Concentrate Polymorph Primal Transmutation

When this combination cartridge is used as ammunition for a firearm attack, both the constituent cartridges take effect. For example, you can combine two dragon’s breath cartridges to create a combined cartridge that deals twice as much fire damage on a successful hit, or you could combine a rock salt cartridge with a bolas cartridge to deal nonlethal damage with your firearm attack and attempt to trip your target.


8th Level Alchemist Feats

Bombshot [free-action] Feat 8

Alchemist

Prerequisites Infused Weapon, trained in simple firearms

Trigger You use Quick Alchemy to craft an alchemical bomb, and that bomb’s level is at least 2 levels lower than your advanced alchemy level.

You fashion your alchemical bombs into cartridges that you can fire from your firearms. The bomb gains the cartridge trait and can be fired from any firearm as if it were an alchemical cartridge. If your attack hits, deal your weapon’s damage first then apply the effects of the bomb as if you had thrown it at the attack’s target and successfully hit. If the bomb is fired as part of an action that attacks multiple targets (such as a Spread Strike), choose one target to be hit by the bomb; the others are affected normally by the attack.

You can apply the effects of your alchemist feats that modify bombs (such as debilitating bomb) to bombs that you fashion into cartridges using this feat. If you do so, the effects of those feats also apply to the target of your firearm attack.


10th Level Alchemist Feats

Lightning Loading [one-action] Feat 10

Alchemist

Prerequisites Quick Loading, expert in simple firearms

Requirements You are wielding a firearm that you’re an expert with.

You keep your bullets and alchemical cartridges in easy-to-reach pouches so you can draw them and load them quickly into your firearms without thinking. You Interact to draw a bullet or alchemical cartridge, load it into a firearm that you’re wielding, then Strike with the firearm.

Persistent Cartridges Feat 10

Alchemist

You add stabilizing agents to your alchemical cartridges that allows their effects to persist longer. Increase the duration of any alchemical cartridge that you create with Quick Alchemy by a number of rounds equal to your Intelligence modifier (minimum 0).

20th Level Alchemist Feats

Quickshot Gunner Feat 20

Alchemist

You brandish firearms with lightning speed. You are permanently quickened. You can only use your extra action to Interact with a firearm to reload it, Strike with a firearm, or use Quick Alchemy to create alchemical cartridges.


Sorcerer Bloodlines

A sorcerer’s bloodline is the catalyst that provides them with spellcasting talent. Bloodlines come from a myriad of sources, from trysts with magical creatures to exposure to unusual magical effects. The following bloodline represents a font of sorcerous power that’s common among nashi sorcerers.

Tanuki

Tanukis are squat, jolly shapechangers, and an ancestor’s tryst put their magic into your bloodline.

Rarity Common for nashi, Uncommon for all others.

Spell List primal

Bloodline Skills Deception, Stealth

Granted Spells cantrip: tanglefoot; 1st: detect poison; 2nd: humanoid form; 3rd: shrink item; 4th: veil; 5th: drop dead; 6th: collective transportation; 7th: project image; 8th: disappearance; 9th: shapechange

Bloodline Spells initial: create spell sake; advanced: reshape body; greater: change shape

Blood Magic Primal magic dulls the intellect of one target, making them more susceptible to trickery. The target takes a –1 status penalty to all skill checks and to their Fortitude DC, Reflex DC, and Will DC against skill checks for 1 round.

Sorcerer Focus Spells

Change Shape Focus 5

Uncommon Concentrate Polymorph Primal Tanuki

Cast [free-action] somatic

Duration indefinite

When you cast this spell, you gain the change shape creature ability until the next time you replenish your focus points. You can use change shape to take the appearance of a giant raccoon, an ordinary raccoon, or a tanuki. Normally, this doesn’t change your attack or damage bonuses for your Strikes, but it might change the damage dice or type Strikes deal.

  • Giant Raccoon size Large; low-light vision, scent (imprecise) 30 feet, Speed 30 feet, climb Speed 20 feet.; Melee jaws (agile), Damage 1d10 piercing

Create Spell Sake Focus 1

Uncommon Tanuki

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Duration 24 hours or until discharged

When you cast the focus spell, choose one sorcerer spell or bloodline spell that you know and expend a spell slot of a level equal to the chosen spell’s level. You distill the expended spell energy into a magical pint of sake that is stored within a small wooden jug marked with a unique symbol representing you or your bloodline. The sake functions in all ways as a potion, granting its imbiber the effects of the chosen spell after they drink it. Only the imbiber is affected by the spell, even if it would normally affect multiple targets or an area.

Once distilled, a pint of spell sake lasts for 24 hours or until you regain your spell slots, at which point the spell sake loses its potency and becomes mundane alcohol. Drinking a pint of spell sake affects the drinker as if they had consumed a pint of potent alcohol.

Reshape Body Focus 3

Uncommon Concentrate Form Primal Tanuki

Cast [free-action] somatic

Duration indefinite
When you cast this spell, you gain the ability to reshape your body into useful items. After casting this spell, you gain the following ability until the next time you replenish your focus points.

Reshape Body [one-action] (concentrate, form, primal, tanuki)

Choose one piece of Common equipment or a Common structure. The chosen equipment or structure must have an item level equal to or less than your sorcerer level, cannot be larger than your size, and cannot have the alchemical, consumable, or magical traits. You reshape part of your body into a functional copy of the chosen equipment or structure. Items created in this fashion are directly connected to your body, so they cannot be given to or used by other creatures or used to craft other items. Anything you create using this spell counts as having been crafted by you for the purpose of any nashi feats you possess.

Heightened (+1) Increase the maximum size of items that you can create with this spell by one size category.


Magitechnician Wizards

Instead of narrowly focusing on an arcane school or becoming a universalist, many nashi wizards choose to focus on magic that allows them to create wonders both magical and mundane, becoming magitechnicians. You become trained in Crafting. Your proficiency rank in Crafting improves to expert at 2nd level, master at 7th level, legendary at 15th level.

In addition, you gain a bonus skill feat at 2nd level and every 2 levels thereafter. You must choose an Arcana skill feat, a Crafting skill feat, or a varying skill feat that requires a proficiency rank of trained or better in either Arcana or Crafting.

Weapons

Nashi happily use their advanced engineering and alchemical theorems to craft exotic weaponry.

New Weapon Traits

The following weapon traits compliment the new weapons described below.

Chamber: The weapon possesses a chamber that allows it to hold multiple pieces of ammunition up to the listed amount. When you use an Interact action to reload such a weapon, you can load one piece of ammunition into the weapon with one action or you can reload the weapon up to its maximum capacity with three actions.

Grenadier: Instead of using typical ammunition for a weapon of its kind, the weapon fires alchemical bombs. In effect, you use the weapon’s range and the bomb’s damage and weapon traits. Grenadier weapons use the bomb weapon group’s critical specialization instead of the weapon’s group.

Malfunction: When you roll an attack roll with the weapon and the result is a critical failure, the weapon jams. A jammed weapon cannot be fired until the weapon is cleared using the Clear Firearm action (see New Crafting Trained Action below).

Nashi: Nashi craft and use these weapons.

Spread: You can use the Spread Strike action to attack multiple foes simultaneously with the weapon.

Sniper: When you use the Sneak action while already undetected, you can make a ranged Strike with the weapon instead of moving. After resolving your attack, the GM rolls your Stealth check in secret and compares the result to the Perception DC of each creature you were hidden or undetected from before your attack, as described by the Sneak action You don’t get to roll against a creature if, after your attack, you neither are concealed from it nor have cover or greater cover against it. You automatically become observed by such a creature.

Stun: You can toggle the weapon’s attacks between dealing lethal damage or nonlethal damage using a Interact action. Attacks that deal nonlethal damage act as if they had the nonlethal weapon trait.

New Basic Actions

The following is a basic action that you can use with firearms that you have a modicum of skill with.

Spread Strike [two-actions]

Attack

Requirements You are wielding a firearm with the spread weapon trait that you have a proficiency rank of trained or better with.

You make a ranged Strike against multiple targets using the firearm. When doing so, you attack all creatures in a cone that extends only to the weapon’s first range increment. Roll one attack against each creature within the cone, starting with those closest to you and applying your multiple attack penalty normally. Roll damage only once for all targets; this damage is multiplied normally if any of your attacks are a critical hit. You can’t avoid shooting any allies in the cone, nor can you shoot at any creature more than once. Attacks made in this manner ignore the concealed and invisible condition. You can’t deal precision damage with ranged Strikes made in this manner. Ammunition made for spread weapons is designed for Spread Strikes, so each use of this ability expends only one piece of ammunition per action.

  • Critical Success As success, but you deal double damage.
  • Success You deal damage according to the weapon, including any modifiers, bonuses, and penalties you have to damage.

New Crafting Trained Action

You must be trained in Crafting to use it to Clear a Firearm.

Clear Firearm [one-action]

Concentrate Manipulate

Requirements You are holding a jammed firearm that you have a proficiency rank of trained or better in.

You attempt to clear the jammed firearm so you can wield it properly again. The GM sets the DC, but its usually about the same DC to Clear a Firearm as it is to Craft it in the first place. Clearing a firearm takes 1d4 successful Crafting checks, determined by the GM in secret.

  • Critical Success As a success, except you earn two successes.
  • Success You earn one success towards clearing the firearm. If you’ve earned all required successes, the firearm is cleared and can be used normally.
  • Critical Failure Increase the number of successes you need to clear the firearm by 1.

Firearm Weapon Group

Nashi engineers are forerunners in the production of firearms, a special type of weapon that utilizes miniature explosions to propel bullets towards enemies, piercing them to deal damage.

Critical Specialization Effects: The target takes additional damage from the attack equal to its armor’s check penalty (if any). In addition, the target’s armor takes half damage from the critical hit, reduced normally by hardness.

Nashi Leadspitter: Popular with swap-dwelling nashi, this firearm has two long barrels whose ammunition explodes in a small cone when fired.

Nashi Peppergun: This two-handed firearm possesses four squat barrels that are mounted to a pistol stock. Rather than pulling a trigger, the wielder turns a crank on the weapon’s side to unleash a storm of bullets at the enemy.

Nashi Pipsqueak: This handheld firearm possesses a six-chamber barrel and a revolver-action loading mechanism. Its named not only for its small size, but for the shrill sound that accompanies every shot.

Nashi Shadowshot: This large, two-handed firearm possesses a massive barrel designed to launch bullets across vast distances. It is especially good for firing upon foes while hidden.

Nashi Thundertorch: This handheld firearm uses magnetic coils to generate electric jolts possess both lethal and nonlethal settings.

Alchemical Cartridges

An alchemical cartridge is a single firearm bullet combines a single bullet with volatile alchemical components that explodes when the bullet strikes a creature or target. Alchemical cartridges produce a variety of effects, such as adding damage to a firearm attack or inflicting a condition onto an enemy.

Alchemical cartridges have the cartridge trait. Alchemical cartridges are ammunition that must be fired from a firearm to take effect. Loading an alchemical cartridge into a firearm is the same as loading it with a bullet, requiring an Interact action. If fired from a weapon with the malfunction trait, an alchemical cartridge usually backfires onto you when you critically fail on an attack with the weapon, affecting you as if you were the intended target of the attack. The cartridge is activated when the firearm’s attack hits a target—you don’t have to activate it separately.

As they are a kind of ammunition, alchemical cartridges can be made into magical ammunition as if they were bullets.

Ferret cartridges are specifically designed to expel toxic fumes when fired when the bullet impacts a surface. You can use an Interact action to infuse a ferret cartridge with any item with the inhaled trait or any alchemical tool that specifically creates gas, vapors, or an inhaled effect. After attacking with the firearm, the ammunition releases the infused alchemical item, centered on the attack’s target or the square the ammunition landed, as determined by the GM.
