Races in the Voids of Space

I'm working on my contribution to the great hereditary line that is GLOG. For reference, Lexi over at Blasted, Cratered Land has a succinct description. It is... many times distilled. Built on the backs of the likes of Type1Ninja, Lexi, Skerples, Angus Warman (in his sidebar) and Arnold K. himself. Coming.... Eventually!

This is the race table, with sources at the bottom! If you don't know what something is, ask in the comments.
