Forms Beyond Form

For Solomon Stations, I want to push the boundaries of what exactly it is you are playing as ....
In all senses, "jobs", "species," "skills", "identities" etc.
Want the characters to emerge from the fuzzy potential in the spaces between systems and categories.

So while I started with four "races/species": Human, Android, Drone and Ancillary/Avatar, I'm now experimenting into much broader, more open "forms", more suggestions than anything. Each Form might have a couple bullets or a sentence of description, but likely I'll leave it up to the player to interpret what it actually is (especially in (re)combination with the skills they roll).

Here are d20 "Forms" for Solomon Stations and other far-future / post-human / high-wonder sci-fi...
