Parahumans in GURPS
General History: Parahumans were developed by a consortium of asteroid mining corporations to solve the legal labor shortage they faced in the depths of space. They were given cosmetic genetic modifications to make it seem obvious they weren’t human, looking like a variety of different animal species, increased hemoglobin and myoglobin, connective tissues reinforced against decompression, and the ability to enter torpor. However, they still received support from human activists when they rebelled against their corporate overlords and obtained freedom in the Asteroid Belt. Later expanding out into the galaxy and forming the Federation of Parahuman Species (aka the Para-Imperium).
Baseline Parahuman template (26 points):
Advantages: Acute Senses /2 (choose any one sense, or split levels between two senses) [4], Doesn’t Breathe (Oxygen Storage, x25 -50%) [10], Metabolism Control (Hibernation, deprived of oxygen -60%) /8 [16], Vacuum Support [5].
Perks: Fur [1]
Disadvantages: I

Rise of the Zootopian Star Republic Ch. 2
Stardate 15.2.2200, ZNV Corvette Chimera, Zol Station
Captain Judy Hopps of the newly established Zootopian Navy fidgeted with the epaulets on her newly fitted dress uniform as the lift ascended to her new command. She knew that she had developed quite the reputation over the years as the bunny who saved Zootopia, and couldn’t bear to disappoint her new crew. After what seemed like an eternity the doors opened and she crossed over the docking tube onto the ship’s main deck.
The interior of the corvette looked cramped, and not just because seemingly the entire crew had gathered in there. The entrance was tall enough for a rhino to enter but the largest member of the crew was a tiger, and the majority of them appeared to be small species such as rodents and weasels. Off to the sides Judy could see passages and tunnels designed for smaller mammals and walkways at shoulder height for the larger species present, it seemed like the ship’s designers had intended the craft fo

Rise of the Zootopian Star Republic Chapter 1
Five years after the failed invasion
Judy looked out the shuttle window as they cleared the atmosphere and the flames from friction died away.  They were in space now, officially they had left Zootopia, not just the city she had grown up admiring and enthusiastically emigrated to half a dozen years previous, but also the planet that many mammals were using the same name for.  As the planet’s curvature receded below them she wondered what would become of her life now.  For nearly seven years her life had been a series of upheavals.  Becoming a police officer, moving to the big city, uncovering a conspiracy to destroy the foundations of Zootopia, an attack by aliens!  And now she was going into space itself.
Her thoughts were interrupted by a hand resting on her shoulder, she turned to see her constant companion of the past half-decade leaning over her.  “Something on your mind, my sly bunny?”  Nick was strapped into the seat next to h

As I might have mentioned before, I haven't been able to complete a full 50,000 word novella for National Novel Writing Month since 2013.

This year, my publisher, Thurston Howl, has been running a novella writing workshop for the past month, and I've been writing gradually longer outlines for what will probably be more of a short story by the end of this month.

It's something of a Lovecraft influenced furry horror story about an exhausted office fox named Charles who gets invited to a cult meeting by a coworker of his. Working title so far is "Haruspicy".

While I haven't written anything on the Para-Imperium setting, I am actually planning to self-publish a collection of the stories and worldbuilding information I've posted on this site and on paraimperium.wordpress.com/ so keep updated for that.

A while back one of my friends wrote a "fanfic" of the Para-Imperium 'verse ( www.furaffinity.net/journal/85… ), I honestly wouldn't mind if anyone else had their own content to add, it is a pretty big universe after all. Though I reserve the right to decide if it's canon.

Heck, I've been writing a bit of "recursive fanfiction" of this long-running Zootopia fanfic called "Take a Stand" along with some of its' other fans. (See my fanfiction.net and Archive of Our Own accounts).
