Historical culture:

before the enslavement, the Iavolg, who's original name is Larentili, where a trade-based society. they where made of small tribal groups, living together. gold was very plentiful on their planet, and was nearly worthless exept as a decoration. wealth was measured not only by the goods you produced and controlled, but by the people you had in your tribe.  people where traded between families for commercial gain (not like slavery. more like sports teams)

naturally, egg clutches  where laid once a month and bonded together. when half had hatched, the rest would self terminate, feeding their nutrients into the newborns. Each egg, while different from the parent(s. their could be many) was genetically identical to the rest in it's clutch, meaning It was actually beneficial for some eggs to die for the others, as their siblings would pass on their genes.

after Agnasi, the eggs where modified to be disconnected, meaning each would hatch, and the newborns would be ravenously hungry. in addition, the eggs would now be laid every day.

Fun fact: A ship that size would strip pretty much every planet they own of its metals and other natural resources.

these guys do have a huge ship, not that size, but realy big, because they DID strip every planet they own of its metals and other natural resources

Just wanna remind everyone that strip-mining planets is actually a very common thing to do for some of the golden and silver age races. One of the most prominent of whom are the Mon-Krai, which use mass-produced mining drones to "gnaw" at a planet until all valuable materials are extracted.  :)

had to switch OS, old one crashed. so I lost most of the Iavolg creatures, cept Nmobor, strangely.
after a while, Agnasi found that, statisticaly, scratching at rocks with your fingernails until they fall of is an unaffective way to gather raw material.

so he made this:



it diggs through the ground and smashes through metal and rock. it basicaly has pickaxes for hands

an Iavolg filling a smaller niche than the others. I'm calling it the breathless until I invent a good name.

designed for higher speed and dexterity. usefull for catching fast-moving enemies and as aggressive guards. their lack of armor prevents them from edging out the tougher savage.

That brings up the question, how to Larentili differentiate each other, for communication purposes, for example?

They how the heck to they communicate?

I mean, they have to have SOME way to differentiate each other besides name, then. You've got to have SOME way of specifying who you're talking to, in a group, for example.

Do they just say something like, "hey, you there."?
