So, I've been looking around and a question has popped into my mind when it comes to the species of characters (2 actually):

 

1. When selecting a species can it be anything from a place like Wookiepedia or is it more select from http://starwarsrp.ne...proved-species/.

 

 

I don't know maybe I'm just blind and have missed it.

 

2. Extension to the above. Does a character have to be a "sentient" species e.g. make a character who is an Akk dog or Rancor (I don't know).

 

 

Again, I may just be blind.

Couldn't figure out the images...

Species can be anything Canon (Chaos considers Legends as Canon so anything from Official Canon to Legends), however there is a Banned/Restricted species list that you can have a look at if your species is something exotic and you want to make sure.

 

You can make a character out of one of the Approved Species. These species are just custom species made by members. You might be inclined to ask the creator first though.

 

In regards to sentience.. well I doubt a Rock is going to provide a very compelling storyline. As long as it can move and behave then ranging from Semi-Sentience to Sentience is all well and good.

Okay, thanks for the response but I do have to mention one thing you said that's wrong

 

Rocks can tell compelling stories if it's the right rock

"I am rock."

 

Here is the restricted species list, in case you needed it. Also note the ban on known SW - or other media - characters. No Batman, sadly.

I mean if you look on Wookiepedia there are some both rock and tree species.

Obviously some are more intended for jokes cough mount sorrow cough

but hey they're there:

Rocks

Plants
