(My) Post Apocalyptic Races

Racial Tables
This is somewhat of a work in progress.

Table 1: Beastmen and Plants
These tables are for basic animal or plant stock of animal and plant mutants. I use the term "Beastmen" for animal mutants, but haven't decided on a term for mutant plants yet.I think these tables cover the most interesting and common species that a player would want to play, but if there's anything I missed, let me know. Some entries have two or three species because they are close enough that the stats would be the same (Tupelo trees are listed with alternate names, since they have a wide variety of common usages). Songbirds have a subtable because all of there stats would essentially be the same, though I split out the corvids. (Might use Hickory, Cottonwood, Mahogany, Mesquite, Tamarack (a Gygax favorite?), Hazelnut, Witchhazel in plants.)
Another Note for this table, there are no insect or saurian (dinosaur age critters - a more general term than "dinosaur" that includes stuff like dimetrodons and plesiosaurs and so forth) beastmen, mostly because A) there are already enough general animals to fill the table, and B) I'm more likely to use mutant versions of these as non-humanoid mutants (though since I also want to include Extraterrestrial Aliens, there's some room to play with humanoid insects and saurians).

Table 3: Humanoid Robots, Robots, Mutant Humans
I use some different terms for robots, though I haven't completely codified my usage. Cyborgs should be fairly obvious. Androids represent humanoid robots built to look like real humans whereas Droids are obviously robotic humanoids. Soft & Hard Holograms are pretty much from Mutant Crawl Classics. For non-humanoid robots, I'm debating breaking them down into Robots, Mechs (combat robots), and Drones (more combat robots, but may also cover certain surveillance/observation/scouting type robots. For the Mutant Humanoids, I mainly pulled from classic post apocalyptic sources (Eloi for example, Morlocks are name-changed to Cavefolk, though this is tentative), mythological sources (Greek Mythology had a bunch of weird humanoids), After the Bomb (Pig People, which are hybrid pig/humans that look like pure strain humans; they also inspired Ape People, since the primates would be the easiest species to pass as PSHs), and a few other odds and ends (Stepfords I included because I like the idea of creepy, always smiling and happy humanoids with dark secrets). A lot of mutant humanoids are based simply on common post apocalyptic mutation descriptions, some of which overlap with mythological equivalents (ettins, cyclops, etc.). The Humanoids table is probably the one most likely to change, as I develop better sounding names for several of the entries.
