As I recall, the Hadozee also made an appearance in Dragonlance (DL9 - Dragons of Deceit ) as the Shadow People.
They mention Hadozee traveling to Krynn in the D&D Beyond clip but don't mention the 'Shadow People' by name.

Now my question is if PC races from Star*drive/Alternity or Star-Frontiers (now I imagine it like one of those videogames imitating the spirit of 80's saturday morning cartoon) can be adapted to D&D. Why not also the creatures from Gamma World? Lots of mutant antropomorphic animals are perfect to sell action figures for children and waifu pillow for young adults.

What races from the Alternity setting would everyone like to see as a D&D race? curious The sasquatch-like Weren? The psionic Fraal? the Lizardfolk-like T'sa? The gargoyle-like Seshayan? Or the Half-Construct, Mechalus? I know, this should be for another thread.... :p
 

The hadozee also resemble the aliens from Alen Dean Foster's Icerigger, in their summer form. In their winter form they have skate-like claws on their feet and use their arm-flaps for propulsion on ice.

Seshayan for sure. They're close to aarokora, but there's something just alien enough about them that I'd want a full race write-up.

Weren would be shifters, maaybe reskinned goliaths.
T'sa would be lizardfolk or reskinned gnomes.
Mechalus would be warforged.
Fraal? Who cares, they're space elves. :p

I think Seshayans and Fraal got distinct writeups as PC races in some 2e era Dragon Magazine issue.

Seshayans we might start from the Hadozee PC race and change some things around.
Fraal would definitely have Telepathy and some psionic themed cantrips.
T'sa I think would be Kobolds actually, as they sort of size small reptilians.
And Weren could actually be Bugbears, or we start from there with powerful build and long-limbed.
Mechalus I think we should start from the Simic Hybrid as an example, but make them more mechanical themed instead of biological.

Desmodu, the large bat riding underdark bat people with 12 HD so they could be appropriately used as adversaries for drow in a high level 3.0 module? I never really liked their aesthetic.

It's a good pic insofar as it answers the question of how to do armor for creatures with wingflaps.
It's not such a good pic because it answers that question with "lace-up leather mankini with pauldrons."
 

Oh, Star Frontiers, how I miss you. Your untimely death was a tragedy.:(
I would argue it has never died. To me, a dead RPG is one that no longer has new content created for it. SF has always had new content created for it regularly.
