I am world building for a Pathfinder campaign. In the world I'm building, I'm thinking about there being a continent extremely linked to nature — most civilizations being primitive, with the landscape surrounding them remaining as natural as possible.

I'm thinking about this continent being inhabited by anthropomorphic animals, to represent how close this continent and those on it are to nature itself.

Is there a complete list of "furry" races in Pathfinder, counting third party content?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you consider the were-tigers and such as anthropomorphic animals or do you need them to only have one "hybrid" shape? \$\endgroup\$ – Anne Aunyme Jun 19 '17 at 13:06

Catfolk - cat

Ghoran - tree/plant

Gnoll - hyena

Grippli - frog

Kitsune - fox (can also appear full-blood human)

Kobold - lizard

Ratfolk - rat

Syrinx - owl

Tengu - crow

Trox - insect

Vanara - monkey

Here are some honorable mentions:

Merfolk - half-fish

Nagaji/Reptoid/Vishkanya - lizard-folk

Orang-Pendak - sentient apes

Strix - humanoids with bird wings

Wyvaran - winged lizardfolk (if you have any flying lizard enthusiasts in your group)

Those are from Paizo. I don't know of any third-party.

  • \$\begingroup\$ You listed vishkanya twice. \$\endgroup\$ – ShadowKras Jun 17 '17 at 11:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ To complement your list: Syrinxes are avian humanoid with bird-like faces. Trox are insect-like humanoids with four arms. Wyvaran are draconic looking humanoids with wings. \$\endgroup\$ – ShadowKras Jun 17 '17 at 11:54
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ShadowKras You're right, my bad. First mention of vishkanya should be vanara; have modified it accordingly and added syrinxes and trox. Dragons aren't really a "natural" species, so I left out wyvarans (for the same reason I left out tieflings and dhampirs) \$\endgroup\$ – PlutoThePlanet Jun 19 '17 at 13:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ There are flying lizards though. \$\endgroup\$ – ShadowKras Jun 19 '17 at 14:05
