The Wireborn, art by Dakota Curry
The Vanguard Project by Morenkain Industries on Kygor was perhaps the most successful in a long line of attempts by the corporation to increase their influence. It utilized a specialized form of nanomachines that bonded with the cellular DNA of a living person, granting the individual abilities beyond the norm for their species. These individuals would go on to have offspring of their own, which led to an interesting discovery. The children of vanguards were born with nanomachines in every facet of their biology, and thus, could be considered a new species: the Wireborn.
Ability Score Increases: Choose three ability scores. Each of the chosen scores increase by 1.
Size: You are whatever size your chosen base species is.
Age: Wireborn reach adulthood at the normal age of their species, but tend to live a decade or two less, as the strain on their body caused by the nanomachines is palpable.
The Full Wireborn suite of flavor and abilities will be found in the Spaceships and Starwyrms: Core Sourcebook.
