One of the few things that disappointed me about the Space: 1889 rules that came out recently was the lack of addressing Martian physiology in the rulebook. So here’s something more in line with what I expected for the new Ubiquity-powered game:

MARTIANS

Hill, Canal, and High Martians -- as portrayed in Chronicle City's version

Hill, Canal, and High Martians — as portrayed in Chronicle City’s version

The denizens of Mars have three major racial types — the Hill Marian, found in the desolate wastes of the Red Planet; the Canal Martians, found almost exclusively in the urban and canal-fed areas of the world; and the High Martians — thought to either be the “Ur” Martian, or possibly a Hill Martians evolved to the particular environment of mountainous Mars.

Using some of the Beastmen advantages from Mysteries of the Hollow Earth (pg. 14-25), I slapped together Martian character templates that were more in keeping with the original flavor of the game:

Venusians

Venusians aren’t set up as a player character in either any of the editions of Space: 1889, but I’m sure there are folks out there that might want to give them more to do in their campaign than be a poor man’s Sleestak. So here is a Template, vikked from Hollow Earth Expedition‘s Mysteries of the Hollow Earth to use to create a player character Venusian:

Update: Looks like the boys at Clockwork, over in Germany — the originators of the Ubiquity Space: 1889 noted this piece and are interested in incorporating it into future productions. Might lead to some more work, which would be nice.
