Cabalosians: A Centaur Race for Star Trek Adventures

Cause someone dared me to ... I did a Centaur race for Modiphius Games Star Trek Adventures rpg. Aside from changing the racial and planet names, I have also altered the Hard Kicker Talent to be more in line with similar Talents used with other fan created races. I added the second illo because a friend suggested that the first one didn't seem very warrior-like. Spacial thanks to Joshua Brumley On the Star Trek Adventures Google+ community for comments and suggestions, and Stephen Birks on the same community for the name idea.

I present you the Centaurians, Cabalosians based loosely on the Centaurs from A Centaur's Life.


Cabalosians are an intelligent quadruped race native to the mountains and hills of Caballus. A class M world bordering Andorian space, near Coridan. At one time their world was occupied by the Orions and many of their people in the Northern lowlands were enslaved along with various other races captured in Orion raids. The Cabalosians of the Southern mountains, of had a warrior culture akin to the ancient samurai of Earth, waged a long war with the Orions raiding deep into the North and freeing many slaves, who in turn joined their army.
Eventually, with weapons supplied by the Andorians, the Cabalosians liberated their world. The two races maintain good relations and on the Andorian’s recommendation, Caballus joined the Federation in 2163. Cabalosians value service, duty and honour and many serve in Starfleet where they gained reputation as fierce shock troops in the Klingon War.

EXAMPLE VALUE: Service is its own form of honour.

ATTRIBUTES: +1 Daring +1 Fitness +1 Insight

TRAIT: The Cabalosians are a quardriped race, their horse-like lower torso is covered in a soft fur, and they have a horse-like tail. Their upper torso is humanoid except for large donkey-like ears that give them excellent directional hearing. Their hair and ear fur match the colour of their fur and tail. Cabalosians are bigger then humans, standing around two meters tall and can run very fast, averaging 100 meters in nine seconds. Being a mountain people, they are capable of high jumps and have high tolerance for cold.

TALENTS: The character has access to the following talents:
