Races

Sat Jun 24, 2006 1:08 pm

I thought I'd do a topic that just lists races with a short description, doesn't have to go deep into history and culture, just a short tag for each race that gets created.

Humans:

Standard Terran Humans; homo sapiens.


Sri:

A Terran sub-species that has undergone genetic manupulation or cross-breeding sometime in the distant past. The Sri would basically use the celestial template for the moment. Sri are basically humanoid, though they tend to be smaller than humans and more gracefully built. Sri tend to be secretive and clannish. They often serve as mercenaries or arms dealers to other races.


Etheradi:

Reclusive race that dwell in the upper atmosphere of gas giants. Normal Etheradi would be Huge; while elderly Etheradi might be even larger. They have massive, dense carapaces in a roughly platter shape, with many small eyes and other sensors along the edges. Long, muscular tentacles hang down from the center of the carapaces. Their language is likely difficult to even detect, much less attempt to use to communicate. The Ehteradi, however, seem almost totally uninterested in other races and rarely leave their massive worlds.


Uhlani:

The Uhlani (or gasbags) are a non-humanoid race resembling large Terran jellyfish. Uhlani biology produces lighter-than-air gases as a by-product of their metabolism, allowing the Uhlani to float in most standard atmospheres. Uhlani have little tolerance for personal danger and often use their superior technology or client races to handle situations they are ill-suited for. They are a very old race with a long, rich history and highly nuanced culture. Most other races find them overbearing.

Isaans:

A race of humanoids about half the size of Terran humans; use the Halfling template. Very good technical skills and a racial preference for powerful armor and mecha. They seem to have a knack for building and modifying things.

Phoiniki:

A humanoid aquatic race easily recognizable by their start black-and-white coloring. Poor and low tech, they Phoiniki spent sixty years occupied by the Uhlani. They are often employed as common laborers in the Sovereign Worlds.

Jaakari

Tue Jun 27, 2006 10:08 pm

Jaakari are a centauroid species inhabiting 3 primary worlds. All would be concidered death worlds by polite society.
Jaakari have 4 legs for locomotion. 2 primary arms, and 2 secondary arms. 2 eyes with biocular sight organs. The eye resembles an hour glass sat on its side. They have a broad range of scent detection. As well as limited heat sensors. (think of the heat pits of a snake)
Jaakari have complex brains. They are capable of performing two tasks at once, in certain situations.
Ceeta: You realise you can get ten times the output from a gun less than a tenth that size, don't you?
[ommminous hummmmm]
Schlock: I like the soothing sounds I get out of this one.
Ceeta: The glow of doom from the barrel is a nice touch, too...
