Space Monkey Characters [WHITE STAR]

 Space Monkeys appear in the White Star White Box Science Fiction role Playing Rules as an alien creature that may be encountered. I couldn't help but feel there are players out there that might enjoy the role-playing challenge of being a Space Monkey as a PC.

Space monkeys are not uncommon occupants of worlds inhabitable by humans and will often be found living as household pets or servile companions. Space monkeys are vaguely similar to smaller earth apes or monkeys. While sentient the claims of sapience may be a bit of a stretch. Theya] are helpful and loyal to companions and if week trained (and well treated) can be helpful companions in a host of situations.

Technical Ability,Weapons and Armor: Space Monkeys are technically able to use any weapons and armor of the right size but they are not reliable masters of technology. The third time in a day a Space Monkey tries to use any particular piece of equipment,weapon, or technological gear they must make a saving throw to do so properly. If the saving throw to use equipment fails check on table.

Natural Defense: due to tough hide and nimbleness Space Monkeys are naturally AC: 7[12]

Limited Ability to communicate: A Space Monkey has very limited ability to communicate at 1st level they know 1 word typically “Yes”,”No”, “Food”, or their name. Each level gained adds that many additional words to their vocabulary. A 6th level Space Monkey would have a vocabulary of 21 words. They seem to be able to understand many more words than they are able to communicate.

Track Anywhere: Space Monkeys have an amazing ability to track people or specific objects known to them. They will know which direction said person or object is if they are are within 300’ per space monkey level. It requires a whole round of concentration to zero in on the specific being or object. They can find a being based on a piece of hair or clothing from the being in question.
