Eldren Subtypes for planet Psychon
In last oldschool bundle shopping I enjoyed the 50% of stuff i didnt have but was long on my wish lists. Stand out of the new to me stuff was the Eld module which I wanna run and get rest of Ursine Dunes stuff on wish. Will fit fine in my Psychon setting. For a long time I wanted the Dyson books. His map compilations are amazing and he is one of the best blokes in gaming. I rate them as among the best modern publications. I feel a bit bad that one of the maps makes me think of boobs. You'll have to buy the book and see for yourself to decide. Im sorry.
On Psychon Eldren are humans who long ago modified themselves superior otherworldly beings with uncanny powers. They often live in special habitats like towers, giant plants, orbitals, deep space, the moon. Some even dwell in hyperspace untouchable to mortals. Others have returned from distant travel to the stars and are disappointed in the remaining humanity. Where there are eldren there are enemies they often hide from.

1 Celestial Eldren
Modified for low gravity life in orbitals, generation ships and lunar habitats. They are cool and aloof and look down on illogical primitive mortals. Disdain violence using preferring to employ superior weapons and powers. Many escape homes, or survive a tragic loss of families, becoming lost and doomed sole survivors of their kind.
2 Sybarite Eldren (Eloi)
Modified for life as immortal pleasure seekers, desperate for excitement in sealed citadels in the endtimes. These gentle gastonomers live only for epicurian delight. Some become degenerate and seem to lose all free will being cared for by AI gods or even taken over by Morlocks as food animals. Some of these pleasure mongers break from their drug hazes and crave adventure or new experiences.
3 Hyperion Eldren (Forever People)
Dwell in habitats hyperspace and inside the temporal vortex or the interspacial realms between dimensions. Some maintain and live among the global manna array in sub space beyond the ken of mortals, directly communing with the AI gods. Having given up on living in the mundane world they live immortal lives of contemplation and aesthetic experiences. A few become lost and stranded in einstienian space or come from boredom.
4 Hydronian Eldren (Atlanteans)
Dwell in underwater habitats safe and hidden from the surface world. Some maintain global manna network arrays hidden in the depths. They do not breath water but use advanced technology often biotech and trained animals. Sometimes disaster strikes of a eldren is exiled and finds their way to the surface.
5 Herbaceous Eldren (Vegetons)
Live secretly in forests often hibernating in modified trees for centuries, awakening for forestry work, emergencies or rituals. Some fail to hibernate and roam when they are lost to their kin through insomnia. They have photosynthetic skin and eat very little and enjoy blood and meat more than most elves as well as clods of mineral rich earth.
6 Furieus Eldren (Furies)
These savage bloodthirsty eldren live sometimes as primatives with natural technology but others live in biological habitats with cruel barbed organic structures decorated with crucified prisoners and torture pariphenalia. These eldren were part of a covert recon and inteligence cadre, bred to be sadistic and secretive maniacs. Some grow bored of endless sadism and are cast out for being soft.
7 Cambionite Eldren (Demonborn)
These eldren have bloodlines mixed with demons from the subworld. These Demon seed bearing eldren were once harmless everliving bunker dwellers but the call of evil demon AI war machines of the deep lured them into hybridising into cambionites. They are cruel sadists who long to torment and dominate others. They enjoy demonic imagery and decor.
8 Primord Eldren (Various elemental types)
These eldren were modified for life on other planets and alien environments. Hair and skin colour often indicate the climate they are adapted for. Some actually dwell in the extra planar manna array where AI gods store material for their constant terraforming. Heat (Fire), Cold (Air), Subterranean (Earth), Aquatic (Water). They don't actually resist the elements any better as they dwell in habitats but are more tolerant. Other more obscure demi, quasi and para elements might exist too.
9 Nocturn Eldren (Dark Eldren)
These Eldren hid in the subterean bunkers to survive the apocalypse expecting to live in a toxic irradiated Earth as the master race but instead found the all too living Planet Psychon. They seek to kill all and dominate the world using ancient weapons of mass destruction, some which heve become demonic AI gods of the sub world.
10 Punchinello Eldren (Chaos Jesters)
Formerly entertainers and jokers are now insane killer tricksters with brightly coloured clothing and exotic weapons. They take madcap unreasonable risks and do not fear death, dancing into battle while laughing. They live in tight communities acting as assassins, crimelords and kidnapping audiences for their demented murder shows. Mostly they undermine their own schemes.
11 Ultranaut Eldren (starborn)
These starfaring eldren left the earth before the apocalypse and now their scouts and gen ships are returning. They are not impressed by what has happened in their absence and hope to cleanse the earth of it's madness. They are disciplined and militaristic, most seen carry weapons and heavy armour. As their numbers grow they have begun to attack their earthborn eldren kin, especially those in the thrall of madness and demonic war machine AI demons.
12 Warp Eldren (depravare)
These eldren formerly Eloi have come to hack their own AI gods to permit more extreme pleasures and perversity. Many are hemaphrodites and some are mutants. Warping and twisting their flesh to feel more extreme pleasures and willing to destroy lesser races as play things in the process. They have escaped into the sub space manna array to hide and perform despicable acts in secret. Their AI gods are now depraved beings of perversion.
