During your time on station you may find yourself face to face (or face to mirror) with the not quite human. Be they aliens, mutated humans, or self aware constructs you're expected to try and coexist on this deathtrap. Learning their quirks can be key to knowing how to keep them amicable in times of peace, and easy to put down in times of strife.

Roundstart Races

On Yogstation, these are the races allowed to be chosen at round start. Because they are freely available, you should expect to deal with them nearly every round.

Humans

Humans.png

On the station humans enjoy a degree of superiority over other races, everyone you meet in a position of power will generally be a human. By default, the AI will apply the protections of its laws ONLY to humans, though they may extend that protection to other races out of preference provided doing so doesn't harm humans. Should a conflict arise between a human and another race, expect the AI to take the human's side.

Diet

  • Likes: Anything that's cooked
  • Dislikes: Raw food
  • Toxic: None

Benefits

  • AI Protection under the default Asimov lawset.
  • Domination of Command Jobs.
  • Strength in numbers.

Drawbacks

  • Prone to mutation to other races.
  • No special traits.

Where to find them:

  • Everywhere.

  • Running out of power will kill them.
  • More susceptible to damage, individual limbs included.

Where to find them:

Human Mutants

Over the course of a shift, you or someone you know may lose their humanity. These races are not born, but made. These players are less likely to be the targets of racism, as many may simply acknowledge their former humanity, but are none the less NOT human anymore.

Slimepeople

Slimepeople.png

Former humans who were converted to jelly by mutation toxin thus, becoming jellypeople. Many scientists working in xenobiology will undergo this mutation willingly to work closer with their slimes, but others may mass produce the toxin and try to push it on others. Their bodies are composed of a toxic slime, which shouldn't be consumed by other races.

Benefits

  • Anything that would deal toxin damage will heal toxin damage instead.
  • Full immunity from the wrath of hungry slimes.

    • Reaching 1100 jelly volume will let you split once, and reset you to 600.
    • They can swap between bodies at will as long as they're conscious; dying in your current body will still kill you, being unconscious in one will trap you in that body.

Drawbacks

  • Lose limbs when blood volume is low.
  • Take toxin damage from chemicals that would normally cure it. This will also drain blood, and thus causes loss of limbs.
  • Nonhuman to the AI.
  • Take triple damage from sources of cold.

Adamantine Golems

Golem adamantine.png

Lumbering people of shining stone, adamantine golems are born into the servitude of their creators.
