Locomotion: Bipedal
Environment: Forest, Open plains, Deserts, Mountins, Subterran, Coastal areas, Arctic areas.
Diet: Omnivore.
Social behavior: Ancient Feudal society dominates the Æthiran culture.

Hydromancerxs Civilization Traits scale. (Not to be confused with Civ 4 Traits)

The Æthiran Empire: Aggressive / Expansive
The Æthiran Exiles: Philosophical / Creative

Generally Biology

The Æthirans live on the planet Æthir (acualy a moon around a gas giant). Most smiler to a Humanoid lizard with 4 arms and 2 legs, a tail and skin with armored plates. Æthirans comes in almost any color but most have near to earth tones. White and Brightly colored Æthirans are often discriminated in the old world as most Æthirans that do have these colors are often from the exiles colony's in the new world.  Æthirans have a very complex gen structure and Æthirans consist of several specialist races. The variation is extream and after the discovery of Gen manipulation the variation have become even more extream. The Empire is infamous for is inhumane genetic experiments that are mostly conducted by Technomages simply for the own pleasure often without any special goal in mind. Even before Gen manipulation was discovered extensive breading programs where used by Technomages and the Nobility. Life length is also very varied because of the racial differences and especially because of overwork by the lower classes. Some Technomages are rumored to be immortal using technology like Reanimation to extend life (And as a way to recycles the short lived serfs.)

General culture

the culture is dominated by a Feudal society simply known as the Empire have ruled the planet for millennial. The Conclave which is the closest thing to a unified government acts as solve conflicts betwine minor nations, citystates and clans . A group known as the exiles do however no agree with the Conclave and the feudal society and have establasehed colony's in the new world sins the exodus duering the second industrial revelution. The old world Empire made peace with the exile in the new world after years of bloody war and not a uneasy calm exist betwine them. The Conclave now handle any galactic all galactic matters but due to a agreement betwine the Empire and the Exiles entitles some of the planets colonized or conquered by the Empire to be left in the care of the Exile government. (And those species should really consider them self lucky.)

The Empire (Also know as The Old World Empire by Exiles)

The Empire have no definitive leader however the Aethirans believe that a mystic force known as the Shadow Emperor guilds them. However because the several conflicts in interpreting the Divine will of the Shadow Emperor the Conclave was appointed oversee the Tribunal, Hertics (like the Exiles) and dangruses technological developing. Day to day life is govern by local lord. The are mainly 2 types of Lords. Ether there part of the traditional Nobility or part of the Technomages. The Nobility like earth Nobility rest is power in military might and poltics. The Techomances rest their power in Creation and production of technology. Often these 2 groups works to gather.

The Freemen (Also know as The New World Exiles or simply the Exiles)

The Freemen as they like to call them self is rule by a representative democracy or if a majority of 75% of the population show up for a vote they get to vote directly. (You need to register your intention to vote ahead of time in most territories to simplify the process.) There society is gently open to change but it can take a little wile for technological development to be applied because the Freemens do not like to do anything without knowing what the effect will be in advance. This fact and that The Freemen have a lot less resources the the Empire is considered to be the main reason why the Freemens never bin able to truly beat the Empire in the scientific races.

I'm sorry if a kept it short. I'm not that good at writhing things down. If anyone got any question just ask.

Nice to see you like it Krakow Sam.  :)

Well i tried some infomation. Trying to employ the Hydromancerxs Civilization Traits scale (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5029.0) but it was hard to classify them.

The Empire i made Aggressive well because they like war and bloodsports and things like that. I also made them expansive as they do try to subjugate any specie they come i to contact with even if their natural growth rate is really very slow. Still their are so many of them living underground in their large city's. I was thinking of spiritual but as their not that unified the to their feudal society. (But they are very very religious.) I also thinking about Scientific but the Technomages try to keep all technology hidden from each other. The Conclave also try to keep technology from the public (and do even sometimes try to stop Technomages from developing new Science.) It is also very mix with their religious believes so it very hard for outsiders to understand. Industrious was also a option but even if they do use a lot of slave labor and even a large reanimated workforce is not what their really famous for. (Well collecting slaves maybe but not for their efficients industrial compexes.)

The Exiles where a little easier. Philosophical because they try to stand against everything the Empire stands for even if they officially now a part of the Empire. Creative because they love culture and a lot of the even the Empires art have a history in the Freemens creative expration. The Empire have copied a lot the Exiles. Is the Exiles hope that their art and ides can bring peace not only to the Empire but also to the rest of the universe.

Well I'm back. lets start some what chronologically.

Tribal stage
This time is essentially what form the Æthiran Empire social order and ideals. A time with chaos and strife. The Tribes and clans often went to war with each other. Mush of this aggressiveness can be found in the Empire today. But the wars where often self destructive and many Tribes and clans went extinct because of this. Also a lot of in Tribe fight over who should rule lead to a unstable society. But then two philosopher where born. Both would have more impact then any other Æthiran in the Æthiran history. It where there ideas that created the concept of the Shadow Emperor and it was also there ides from the basic rule for the most commen way to solve conflict even in the Empire days. Namely the Duel system.

The two philosophers.
The two philosophers know as "Strongwill daughter of Shadow Clan" and "Fastmind son of Æthiran Dragon¹ tribe" are the once that created the religion and to some extent the social structure of the Empire. Even the Exiles hold them in very high regard. Strongwill would once wounder why no thing look as it was really new. Everyhing seem to be some sort of copy from a large library of knowledge. All the trees look basically the same and all the all the animal allway keep the same form. And when a Animal was born disformed it usually died quickly. So Strongwill started to believe that all thing in this world was copied from a "real world" which she called the Shadow library of ides. (This idea would be very smiler to Plato's metaphysical idea world.) The idea of the Shadow library quickly spread to many of the wise but one day Fastmind heard of the idea. He thought it was great idea but found what he called flaws in it. Object seem to be connect to each other. Things seem to change with time. And for the better. It was not as something try to copy the shadow library as mush as some unseen force trying to guide them toward a goal infinity far away. The Concept of the Shadow Emperor was born. Fastmind explained that the reason why weak things die is because is the will of the Shadow Emperor. The reason why thing change is because is the Sprite of the Shadow Emperor. Simply put the Will (Order) shapes and the Spirit (Chaos) changes. These idea was even a bigger hit then the idea of the Shadow library and soon every leader follow the idea that it was a Shadow Emperor guiding there action. If you did not follow the Will and Spirit of the Shadow Emperor then you would get punished simply because someone else that was stronger or smarter then you would take your place. This also gave the birth to the proverb "For the Will and Spirit of the Shadow Emperor!" some time shorten to  "For the Will of the Emperor!".

1. Æthiran Dragon is the best term for a flying lizard with batlike 2 wing, 2  scythes talon arms, 2 feet, very long tail and armored skin. It was nearly hunted to extincion during the first industrial revoltion. Also know as Sky Reapers because of their scythes talon arms.

Duel system
The duel system was develop as a way to solve conflicts and was inspired by the idea of a Shadow Emperor guiding the he who was right to glory. When ever two could not a agree and wanted to solve a conflict a duel could be announced by one of the parties. They them self did not have to duel however if they did not wish. Someone or several stand ins could take their place in the duel. However a standin must except out a free will and could not be forced to except to participate in a duel (Slave and animals have not free will an can be use as weapons in duels). Because of this a charismatic Æthiran could often beat a simple brute. How many that combatants that battle it out depended on what the 2 parties agreed on in advance and if they could not agree local tradition dictated the rules. Often this meant that 4 Æthiran where allowed on each team. If you could not fill you spot with a standing (or you self for that matter) you to make it without the extra support. Because of this rule those that where simply strong did not try to take power from someone that was weak but very intelligent or well connected. The duel was then performed in a large ring (the size could vary a lot depending on Arena) and the losing team was the team that ether exit the ring (Which could be a hard thing to do because some Arenas had high wall or other obstacles to prevent this) died in the ring or simply surrendered. If the team leader (the one who have challenge or bin challenge to a duel) surrendered it was up to the other teams leader if he wanted to spare the life of the dualist.  As time when on weapons, use of animal and use of slave where often limited. Is the local tradition is often set by the local lord but later the Conclave would have more say in the traditions. The Conclave would allways set the rules of duels betwine local lords that could not agree on terms.

The Technomancers, the Conclave and the Shadow Libraries
The first Technomacers evolved from the priest and shaman that lived in the tribes and clans. After the idea of the Shadow library and Shadow Emperor have started to spreed some of these wise me started to collect infomation a knowledge to form there own Shadow library so they could understand the Will of the Shadow Emperor. As there libraries grow they gain more power. They form secret society to guard their secretes and toke on apprentices to follow in there footsteps rather then giving the knowledge to there children. But conflicts betwine Technomacers could often be brutal and even duels sometimes could be consider to be unsafe so a few Technomacers  and Nobility started the Conclave. The mission of the conclave was to unite the Empire and act as Judges. They started by dictating all rules for duels. Those that did not follow the orders of the Conclave would be exterminated. The hole clan and tribe would be eliminated. Because of this most Technomance become even more secretive with there technology fearing it could be bad or even use again themself by the Conclave. The Conclave also build is own Shadow Library so they could use the knowledge to predict the Emperors Will. The members of the Conclave may never use this knowledge for their own purpose however and may never tell anyone what is write their. Most Conclave member therefor seldom is seen i public but are hide from others. Also very few that are willing to become Conclave member because of this as you can not use the power you posses for you own interst. In Moder time the Conclave Shadow Library is without a equal the largest library in the Empire and maybe even the entire Universe. thousends of thosends of computers try to sort, store infomation and use it to predict future events. It contains a lot of data that most species would probably find useless but for the Æthirans all date is usefull as it could be use to predict the Will of the Shadow Emperor.

Just ask if you go any questions.

The age of the Citystates
As the population grew and technology evolved giant Citystates grew around the Technomancers and Nobilities forts. Many of the these city's grew simply because the need to feed the war machine that allway was no the march even if there where no wars. As Technomancers grew more protective of their knowledge and Nobilities fear the loss of power all the local lords wear lock in a heated arms race that still continue today. Fort where build larger and higher then ever before in in there shadow the city's grew. Stretching not only up toward the sky but also deep underground. So extensive are the tunnels that make up these city's that they stretch for miles often connecting with other city states. What is seen on the surfers is just the tip of the Iceberg. The higher one is up on the hierarchy the higher up in the city's the Æthirans generally live. This have given birth to the old proverb "A Technomancer never touch the ground" Having the double meaning that Technomancer generally are so distance from their serf that do not really know what the world look like and allway living in blitz with the clouds (And the fact that a lot of Technomancer know how to levitate  :P ). The few nobles that do control power in the City states often live at lower levels. Is not uncommon for the nobles to rule the Undercity wile the Technomancers rules the sky. This is simply because most nobles make their living from resource extraction and war wiles Technomancer usually makes living from using production, use of technology and as counselors to other High ranking Technomancer and Nobels.

A little jump in time forward to galatic age.

Æthirans View on Aliens
The common Æthira is often fascinated with biology and theirfor love any strange new lifeform that can find. Collecting strange new species is a hobby for both Feudal lord as for the Freemen. But culture is often a diffrent matter. Still the Empire and the Exiles have diffrent views on other Alien cultures.

The Empires View on Aliens.
The Empires is far from being Xenophobic even if they may seem to be by other observers. Rather the opposite is true. Æthirans in general are Xenophilias and love other species. But the Empire do see other cultures as "inferior". They see other species as dumb and to not trust their governments. The only exception to this is the Tri lateral Squid like creatures from a water world that is relative close to Æthira which the empire have somewhat respect for. (No even them self really know why however.) The Conclaves Generally want to conquerer any Aliens that come in to contact with but due to the empires vastness and unorganized structure is often not a option. The feudal lord often makes raids or try to trade with other species. But trading with these lord is often like making a pact with the Devil. Especially if is a Technomancer. Is not uncommon for a Technomancer to sell highly advance technology without any proper instruction on how to use it then later move i in the new territory after the Aliens have wiped them self out with the divice. The Nobility often hires out their troops as mercenaries and switch sides onces they see that can grab power from their former employees. Still is uncommon for Æthirans to actually brake any contracts. Æthirans are just very good at writing legal documents.

(And what ever you do, Do not ever sell them you soul! They will take this literally and you will be there slave forever just because they can do it!)

The Exiles View on Aliens.
Like the Empire the Exiles love Aliens. But are far from as condemning of other cultures as the Empire. Still they do sometimes take a little high and mighty attitude toward other cultures. But reminding them of their own past often makes them a lot more open as they them self where hunted for their ideas in the past. The Exiles aren't really allowed to make diplomatic contacts with other species sins the their unification with the Empire. But due to their autonomy and that the peace treaty that unified the Empire and the Exiles gave them right to a part the conquered territories have given them extensive connections with other Aliens. Sometime they even pay smaller feudal lords to take them with them on there interstellar voyages. This have often save many species from becoming pets or slaves of the Empire. But the Exiles try to keep a very low profile fearing a new war against the Empire if they try to librate and warn to many Alien spices.

I will try to make more pictures but i need a lot of inspiration for that. A part of the reason why i post the Spectral armor is because i did not have to show that mush detail yet was able to show the general appearance of a Æthirans.

Anyway anyone that want to try to make you own Æthiran lizard sub race feel free to do so. Most have large pair of upper arms and a smaller pair of lower arms (See Spectral armor.) 2 legs. 1 tail. 4 fingers including thumb and thin clawlike nails. Scaly hide. 2 Eyes. 2 nostrials on the end of the usually short face. (Sometimes even flat like a humans face.) But that just some general ides how they look. Like i posted before their variations can be extream. I'm sure i would except any contribution.  ;)

(And do not worry about cloths. Most of the lower classes do not use cloths if they do not live in a colder climate. They do no even have to worry about their genitalia dangling about like use humans and their Armored Scaly skin protects them against the elements.)  :D

I agree on that. To bad that Exiles are strictly forbidden to make first contact or any contact at all because of their unification with the Empire. Their is a small chances however that a small feudal lord in need of some scientist (Technomance for the feudal lord) would except a research party of Exiles on his exertions. (Generally the research party also pay for right to travel with the feudal lord.)

Not the hate to trade technology. Sure they hand out the Nucleare weapons or Nano enchasted plague to cavemen from time to time but that a other story. If they think you even got the slightest chance of figuring out how it work then they will not trade. Still they do sell equipment if they are sure it can not be use against them. But is not often smart to trade with the feudal lord. You often get a hole lot more then you bargen for. Heck they invented spyware (Do not ask me how) before the steam engine.

Oh well back to the history. We are now in about Civ time.

The Exodus of the Exiles
In the new awaken world of the giant city state duering the second industrial revolution tention grew betwine the serfs and their master. Most who lived in the city's lived in terrible conditions as many still do to day in the Empire. One day however the Technomance "Tranquilmind Daughter of House Greenspire" in the small city Greenspire started to use her technical knowledge to help her serfs. Not only that her started a massive teaching program and started to give rights. Soon serfs of other local lord started to demand that same benefits or try to flee to Greenspire where Tranquilmind accept anyone. Because of this the local lord first try to stop Tranquilmind (often known as Recklesshand in the Empire ) by challenging to a duel. But she did not except even if thosends of skilled warriors where willing to take her place. Tranquilmind defended her action by stating: "duels is not a good way to know the will of the Shadow Emperor, Only from know one self can one be a peace with the Shadow Emperor. One must learn to recognizes that all things are one and all things are connected." The local feudal lords hoped by declining to duel Tranquilmind would also change her way and stop his reckless ways in accordance with the traditions of the Duel. But he did not such thing and continue to teach and help is serfs and other that came to her. The local feudal lords where enrages by this careless act declared war on Greenspire. Tranquilmind was afraid that this would happen and therefore have train not only her serfs in the way to build technology but also in the art of war. Outfitted with the finest equipment and taught in the way of not only traditional combat by also in the stealthy arts of deception Greensipers troops could easily stand up against is aggressors. The added influx of serfs from the local feudal lord did also help to strenghten Greenspire and at the same time weaken the enemies of Tranquilmind. In combat Tranquilmind forces where unequal as the giant landship steamtank attacked mechanizes troops from both sides. Hoard of heavily armored cavalry clashed down from the hills. Even some highly advance Steam Mechs where  imported from the Technomance far south. Greenspire send out large Airship to bomb the city's of his enemies and at the same time send several specially train Assassins to try to kill the feudal lord to end the war. The war was total fought on land and seas, up in the Air and down in the subterran caves blow.  At this time the Conclave have mostly put a blind eye on what Tranquilmind was doing in Greenspire but fearing the conflict would affect other part of the Empire the Conclave called for a Tribunal to determen the guilt of Tranquilmind. To everyonce astonishment Tranquilmind accepted to be taken to the Tribunal and a immediate cease fire was announced by the Conclave that must be honed by all sides. The Tribunal lasted from many months  but Tranquilmind never tried to deny her guilt. Tranquilmind instead use her time to attack the very foundations of the Empire calling is a unjust and outdated. But he did not convinces the Conclave and was sentens to death. All of Greenspire was going to be divided by the local feudal lord as a compensation for the damage they have suffered. But Tranquilmind loyal people could not except this an was able rescue Tranquilmind before his execution. Duering the trail Tranquilmind people have build several ship and modified the landships and battleships to carry greenspires population from the old world to the only then speculated new world Silithia¹ in the east. It seem that Tranquilmind have planed the exodus all along and using the peace during the cease fire to finish of the conscution of the new ships. Tranquilmind and his followers quickly set sails with their giant steam ship toward the new world and at the same time the Conclave enraged by the action of Tranquilmind and his followers announced the total extermination of all the people of Greenspire. All the feudal lord where obligated to attack Tranquilmind or be them self be exterminated. But Tranquilmind was able to outrun her opponents and make it over the almost endless sea to the new world. In the new world the Freemen as they no call them self build up a new nation. Sadly a lot of technology was lost in the exodus but still the Freemen where safe and could start over. In the old world the Conclave started a new purge that we to severally set back the Empires technology development. Many where executed and the Technomances became once again even more secretive. The time that follow was know as the second dark age of technology when little development would happen. A lot was forgot during this time but nothing was forgot about the Exiles betrail and their Exodus to the new world.

1. The continent Silithia was name after a animal called the Silith by the Æthirans because of is likeness to the Silith. the Silith also became the symbol of the Exiles.

Æthirans Empires Hierarchy

English translation of titles for the Æthirans Empires Highest rank first rank. Is base on western ranks of western nobility and secretive mystic orders tiles like freemason order. Technomancer and Nobilities ranks are equal. And remember that this is all a translation to English and Æthirans of course do not speak English.

Super ranks

Nobilities ranks
Warrior ranks
Men with free will yet no nobility rank
Men without free will

Technomages ranks
Librarian ranks

A artist render of what he believes the Emperors Shadow looks in is natural form.

Emperors Shadow
Emperors Shadow not be be confused with the Shadow Emperor him self is a Mythlogical creature in Æthiran culture. A creature that is said to lurk just beyond the border of known space. Is a shapeless oozing black blob that is very intelligent and can take the form of any creature. Is also know to be able to grow to increasable size or be smaller then a thumb. It can digest anything even solid walls and anyone could be is next target. It can infiltrates even the most well guarded technofort and not Archduke or King is safe form it. It seek out it pray the darkest tunnels and can change shape to give it self wings and fly up to the highest spire. Nothing scares the Æthirans as mush as the Emperors Shadow but most Æthirans today believe it to be just a myth and is often use as a scare tactic by Æthiran parants to get their children to go to bed. But is not uncommon for adult Æthirans Amoebaphobia and smiler irrational fears for shapeless forms, especially if they black. A few times "Witchhunts" have bin started by the lower classes to find Emperors Shadows that walks with them but the Conclave do not often support these trails of the mob and try to concentrate on finding renegade Technomancers and hertics instead. The most scary part about the Emperors Shadow for the Æthirans is that other species that have encountered share smiler believes about a Dark oily regenerating blob that can change shape and color so their may be some truth behind it after all.

Watch out! Is behind you!

The Temporal Guardian

The Conclave have for a very long time constructed Guardians to protect and prevent the use of technology. The most famous of these Guardians is the Temporal Guardian that watches over Æthiran Space. A very advance AI that is classified as a 3.99999... dimensional machine. The construction method is still kept secret and is not know if even the Conclave know how it works anylonger. Some even say is a myth to stop curios Technomancers from experimenting with extream Spacetime manipulations but one can put a blind i to the strange phenomena that happens to ships traveling in FTL speed through Æthiran Space. Some ship end up at the wrong place. Some ship exit FLT speed severally damage. Others ship just dispears with out a trance. Most other species just continued these accident to a space piracy which is also common or natural phenomena but the problem did not exist until after Conclave is said to have build the Temporal Guardian. Also as the Æthiran Empire expand so have the area guarded. When a new star system is officially added to the Æthiran Empire after the ownership of that world have bin resolved a construction team from the Conclave is quickly send out to build a Guardian Beacon and a Jump Gate. It is not uncommon to find Technomancer just outside the Guardians reach preforming experiment that manipulate Spacetime but very few technomancer would ever dare to do that within the border of the Empire. (Is also illegal to do so within the borders of the Empire.)

There are 3 regular types of Guardian Beacons. The True type as it is called which is only found in the Empire and have heavy effect of FTL travel. The there is the simpler type which is sold to other races which have minor or no effect FTL travail but is claim to protech the user form Timetravel. Sometimes those that by them figure out way to boost the performance of the Beacon which then can be use as a primitive way to stop safe FTL travel. And last there are small charms often in form of amulets. How mush effect these charms have no one is really sure of but is not recommend that someone trow them at the FTL drive or transport a lot of these on there ship (well one or two charms on every crew member seem to have little effect but some traders have lost there ships when loaded with only charms like this.) Simple beacons and charms are one of the few thing the Conclave gladly sells to other species. A few races see these charms and beacons as way to ward of bad luck so is a relative lucrative business for those that dare travel to Æthirans space. There are also knockoffs of these but is often easy to know if is a genuine Conclave one. also exported all over the universe.

The Jump Gates

Because of the interference of the Temporal Guardian to regular FTL travel a network of Jumpgates have bin constructed. Every new system that is added have at least one small gate build by the conclave. The local lords often build their own larger gates to reduse traffic jams and to not get depended on the conclaves network of jump gates. these gates also makes it easier for local feudal lord to take out tolls and to hunt down pirates. (Even if the majority of piracy is actually conducted by the local feudal lords them self that legally take what ever they want from ships that are in there space of influence.) The Exiles also have a few Jump gates linked to world that are under there protection but because they can not trust the local feudal lord but sometime still have to travel through their space the exiles have develop technology that make smaller ships safely travel at FTL speeds. Some of this technology have found it way to small feudal lord. It also said that Some of the more powerfull Technomancers know how to trick the guardian to move even large object without the use of Jump gate network.

a pic of a planet would be nice,lol dish is 16, so thier numbers are based on a 4 system since it changes the first letter every four numbers. also you made a typo 12 should be kith since 10 is koth or is 10 and 12 the same number.

As the planet is only semi-molten the are areas where the lava have cooled down and form continents. The planet is smiler to Giedi Prime from Dune or Mustafar from Starwars. (More like Giedi Prime then Mustafar.) Technology also help as even if Æthirans only build on the cooler part of the Othyxir was still a hot planet. In the galactic age era Othyxir is home to giant industrial complex and mining operations using the lateset technical advances in Moho mining (even if it the technology is mainly used on the surfices.) A lot of junk is also dump on the planet where it recycled especially sins the Conclave and some of the local feudal lords are trying to clean up the planets in the habitat range. The Archkings of Othyxir have long bin some of the riches Æthirans known in existens because of their controle of this plant.

Hope that answer some of you questions. If you have more ask.  :)

I found a guide a Planet making tutorial (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/topic/A-Better-Planet-Tutorial-5221-1.html) that i think should help you out. I notices after reading it how to make a red atmosphere halo like the one i use on Othyxir is no described. So i will add a bit extra info.

To make a atmosphere just make a Alpha to Selection on the surfices surface layer. Now make a new layer called "glow" or "halo" or what ever you find appropriate. paint the masked area the color you want to use. Now use Filters -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur and enter a value you find fitting. You may want to increases the size of the glow layer a bit however so the halo do not get to obscurd by the planet.

Ask if their is something you do not understand. (But please do not ask a lot of question about the tutorial as i did not write it. I will answer any question on the "Halo" part however.)

Transmission from ViS administration head office, to be relayed to an Aetherian of apropriate seniority.
// Greetings fom ViSta, noble Aetherian people. I speak as the absolute ruler of the ViS. I have already made contact with one of your subordinates, the esteemed Archduke Irongut. I have heard many talkes of Aetherian greatness and I come bearing gifts of goodwill.
My people recently aquired an alien artefact of unknown purpose while assisting with the takeover of a distant world by the space war union. I would like to present it for the approval of you and your technomancers with the blessing of my people. A transport holding the item will reach your borders in several hours.

The Conclave quickly is send a videoless cold replay in their usual manner to the ViS.

//We speak for the Emperors will and are the protectors of the Æthirans Empire! We will accept you artfact but know this and we will send a star ship to pick it up. We warn you we do not tolerate any hostility or trickery aim at the Empire! We we will attack if you try to spreed any heretical faith in to our border! We be at peace for now.//

At the same time a heavily encrypted message is directly to the ViS through a channel usually use for military communication.

//Do not be alarmed. I am Silvershell and I'm a Exile. The Conclave do not like when we take matter in to our own hand but i thought i should warn you. The Conclave can get very violate if you provoke them. The have allready fought several Galactic wars other Galactic races and allways won. Also watch out for the local feudal lords. When you are in there space you better be on you toes. I do not know mush about Archduke Irongut but just be on you toes. Please do not send this message to the Conclave. Also do not try to contact us the Exiles because that could mean trouble for both of us.//

And then a third massage came in.

The Conclave ignores you replay.

OCC: Remember the denial of a ever vigilant Emperor is also Heretical so do not try to insult them by claiming you have no faith. Best is if you do not try to speak about religion of philosophy at all if you are not trying to join the empire and become one of the lesser feudal lords which i do not believe you wish.

//Hmpf... He have most likely sold them to others or taken them to a lab to studier. He may be dumb but he would not send to his worthless library. No that their is anything of value to steal their anyway. I bet we will soon see small ViS clones running around doing some simple task not even worthy of a Æthiran serf. The vary thought of that makes me puke. Maybe if I'm lucky they will be turned to nutriante supplement for the Sky Reapers after his incompetent Technomancers realizes that those slaves he bought are of no value.

Added this section for those that would like to join.

Oath of fealty and voluntary slavery

To pledge once allegiance to the Empire and the local lord about the only peacefully way for a Alien race to join the Empire with the exception of become a slave. Both the Conclave and the Lord (which can be of any rank higher then Archkight or Archscribe.) The Conclave will judge you worthiness base on you loyalty to the Shadow Emperor which must be adopted as Religion and philosophy by the Vassal. The Lord is often motivated by personal gain. The potential Vassal is usually not excepted if the Vassal could bring trouble for the Empire. Vassal can however be loyal to two or even more lords but the Conclave can not accept any other loyalty then that to the Shadow Emperor. Being loyal to two lord is however not a easy thing. Every time one gain a rank the Vassal have retake his oath for him to accept his title. The Vassal never gain a title higher then his lord. In return the Vassal gain protection. Voluntary slavery (or sometimes serfdom) is also accepted. To be accepted as a slave you only need the approval of lord with the rank of Freeman.

Xeno Lord
A rank given to Alien that gives the the temporary title of Xeno Lord (or Xeno Baron and so on.) The Lord that gave this title do so only during a limit time and is often regulated by contract. All the Lord men will not take order from the New Xeno Lord as if he was of the same rank as his Xeno title. A Oath of fealty is not often taken by the Xeno lord but he must follow the terms of contract.

Converting to the faith of the Shadow Emperor.

Well as mentioned before if you like to join Æthirans you must also adopt their religion and philosophy but what dose that mean? Even if Shadow Emperor is one and only god for the Æthirans it is a very flexible religion. You are not forces to go to Church every sunday. Also you do not have to abandon minor false god as long as you recognize that the Shadow Emperor is the one and only true god or divine power as the Æthirans like to see it. You do not pray to the Shadow Emperor ether. Some say he even hates that. The Shadow Emperor only wants You to what is right which can be a hard concept to understand. That why Technomancers spend so mush time trying to predict the future. It is also believe that if you do something wrong then you will be punished for that. Not in the Afterlife (which they do not really believe in) but in this life. The Goal of the Shadow Emperor is generally said to be to Bring order to Chaos and create a infinite new more perfect pattern from the old. This is why unlike ViS (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=4907.0)Æthirans try to make things complex and then let the Shadow Emperor sort out what dose not work. (But the Æthirans to have a some fascination toward the ViS even with the KiSS flaw  :D .) Even if is a very flexible system where Jew, Christans, Islams and Maybe even Hindus could live without making major changes to the religion it do have some very strict dogmas. A Buddhist would most likely be branded a hertic on site because they are trying to leave the Shadow Emperor realm. In fact anyone seeking Nihilist or Ahiallists would have a hard time as view like this works against the Shadow Emperor. Is believed that once you stuck in the Shadow Emperor realm that you will live their forever in one shape or the other so to believe anything else is not only heretical but stupid. The Conclave is the Emperors counsel. It was put in place to protech creation is self from it self destitution tendencies. Because of this the Conclave is have the final word in any matter. To go against the Conclave it the worst sin of all in short of not abandoning the Shadow Emperor. So when one pledge once allegiance to the Shadow Emperor one also accept the conclave as his guardians. In short. Do not play with fire like technology or something else that can upset the status quo and do as the Conclave Dictates and you should be fine.

Just ask if you got any questions as allways.

A short story about the early galactic wars. Somewhat compacted.

The Goshvoth war.

In the early years of the Galactic age the Empire was far from as powerfull as it is today but it quickly expanded. Many of the outer colonies where wounderfull places compared  Æthyx star system and the Exiles often help new more open lords with their colonies. But this peacefull idyllic time would not last. As other older Alien species expanded their empires in reponces to this new Æthiran golden age the room for expantion became smaller and smaller. Soon only plants with less then ideal environment where left and it did not take long before those planet run out to. But the populations of Æthiran Empire was still growing and a enviable conflict was on the horizon. Several feudal lords started to attack the Ancient species know as the Goshvoth after the Goshvoth have denied to trade with them for food and more space which the Goshvoth. The more peacefull lord tried to stop them and start to negotiate a peace but neather the feudal lords nor the Goshvoth could except this. What made the conflict even worse was that all Æthirans wear attacked even if they have never had anything to do with the conflict. Even the Exiles started to build up armies and try to help protect the more peacefull lords. Something that have never happend before. The Conclave declared this would be a total war on the Goshvoth and that those that did not join in where branded heretics. Natural all Lords join the battle and not even the more peacefull and liberal lord stated to attack Goshvoth. Hugh armies wear build. Nuclear weapons where stockpiled. And the best and brightest of their technomancers use the technomagic like never before to stop these danger. The motto became Exterminate or be Exterminated for only the fittest are the Shadow Emperors chosen people.

The battle of Star Sapphire

Naturally those that where hit the hardest where those closest to the front. And the Juiciest targets where of course the world of the more peacefull lord that have build their colonizes on the best world with the help of the exiles. One of these world was Star Sapphire (Name after the gem.) Star Sapphire was world with large oceans and known for is Great silver colored foresters. One of the earliest colonizes that gain a lot of technical helps from the Exiles it was also one of the most liberal worlds. It had allways bin the envy of other local lords. The Archqueen Newdawn of Star Sapphire was very tankfull for all the help she and hear family have gain form the Exiles. For several generation no had the colony prospered and the people have gain more and more liberties. Life was wounderfull compare to just what it have bin just a few generations earlier but this idyllic life would not last. When the war broke out Star Sapphire would become one of the world in the heart of the conflict. First it was only small raids from the Goshvoth. Then several invasion forces where sent. But Archqueen Newdawn her closest Technomancer Mage Purethought was able to rally her Knights and Technomancers and fight back the first invasions. the Goshvoth then abandon Star Sapphire and started to consentrate on the local star systems to Star Sapphire. Archqueen Newdawn quickly send aid to other lord and soon the Goshvoth could not ignore the power base Star Sapphire. Archqueen Newdawn tried the hardest to protect her allies but soon a the Goshvoth would strike back hoping to stop her once and for all. With a lighting stick the Goshvoth attack Star Sapphire with a army unlike anything seen before by Archqueen Newdawn. Massive orbital bombardment turn the earth to glass and city's to ruin. All the sliver forest burned and the great seas boiled. They say the screams for the dieing children where so loud that it could be heard in the nearest starsystems. (Poetically speaking of course .) The Knights and Knights had no chance vs the Goshvoth invasion forces when they landed to secure the planet and Archqueen Newdawn with  Mage Purethought made a last valiant stand at the Archqueen palace but could not prevail. The plant was lost or so it seemed. Because their was still hope. One of Mage Purethought apprentices still lived and he would rise like the phoenix form the ashes of the plant. His name was Archadept Alterreality. . Before the battle Mage Purethought ask all of his closest apprentices to leave before Star Sapphire but Archadept Alterreality had refused. So Mage Purethought ask him to at least stay at his subterren laboratory and take care of it. When Archadept Alterreality heard that both his old master and his queen where dead he was crushed decided to do something the Goshvoth. Trying to find a way to combat the Goshvoth Alterreality search the lab for anything that could help him. In Mage Purethought  laboratory archives Alterreality found a old holo tome with the title "The laws of life and death". In the book he found notes from he old master about how to resurrect the dead and controle the life process in living beings. It seem that his old master was able to acquire this holo tome and a other book form a mysteries alien race. Quickly read the notes from his old master and decipher the old tome did not take long before Alterreality started to do experiment. Withing just a few hours he meet with great success. Alterreality wondered: "Why did not my old master continue with his experiment when he was to close?" Armed with his new knowledge he tired to contact the survivors. It was soon apparent that he was the higherst ranking survivor and the few Æthiran left seeking guidance quickly started to follow Alterreality every command. Sending scout to the surface Alterreality was inform about the piles of dead bodies and that most of the Goshvoth have started to move on to attack the rest of the Æthiran Empire. Alterreality created several units dedicate to reanimate using the new chemicals and cybernetic implants he had learned. Soon a army of undead solders stood at his command. Even if the newly reanimate army was far from perfect being able to understand only simple command but it was enough to start the revolt. The solders welled up from the subterran caves swarming over the Goshvoth forces. the Goshvoth where so chock by the attack and was unable fought back the undead hoard. And the more that fell of the Goshvoth the more fresh bodies their where to reanimate. Soon the Goshvoth where on the run and Archadept Alterreality force where in total controle of Star Sapphire. But Alterreality did not stop their. No he continued to and toke the fight to the Goshvoth. Other lord joined up and soon Archadept Alterreality was Archmage Alterreality. One after one the Goshvoth world fall to Alterreality forces and soon their hole empire lay in ruin after massive attack of the Æthiran Empire. The was was had ended and the Goshvoth where no more. Now the only thing that was left of the Goshvoth empire where stored in the libraries of the Technomancers and Conclave.


The Necromancer war.

Archmage Alterreality hoping to rebuild Star Sapphire after the war when back to his old home. But before the earlier war had start the local feudal lord which he had help was allready plotting his downfall. Jealous over his power and his new found knowledge. Seeing how Star Sapphire lay in ruins. The lord quickly reeducated their forces toward Archmage Alterreality. soon he started to lose on all fronts and it was only a matter of time before they would win. His undead army and loyal Knights and Technomancer could not hold them back. Feeling betrayed by his former allies he went to his old master laboratory. Then he rememberd the second holo tome metion in his master notes. Maybe it could hold the key? He order his men to stand their ground as long as possibly and soon a stalemate settled in. Archmage Alterreality knew it would not last for long. Maybe a few months up to a year if he was lucky. So he started to look for the holo tome in the archives. After weeks of searching for the  holo tome he finally found it. Well hidden in a secret compartment in the archives. The tome was titled "the gate to the stars" in some mysties Alien language. It seem to describe somekind of portal. Something smiler to a Jumpgate (which was still early in development at that time.) But it was far more advance then anything Alterreality have ever seen before. Yet it look like it would be possibly to build it with his current technology. Hoping it would be a way to some distance planet where he could take his people and hide for the other lords he started to build the portal. It toke a few months but it was finally compleated. he opened the stargate and the Alterreality  hole laboratory stated to shake. And then portal stated to stabilized and soon he was able to see the other side for the first time. It was a world unlike any world he had ever seen before. The exit of the gate seem to be on the top of a tower. He could see out of the windows of the tower the clouds and several otheir black metallic organic looking towers stretching miles up in the air. On the other side ther  was also a giant alien lifeform floating on air. It had long tentacles which several smaller creature climbed on. Is head and body look somewhat like that of a black widow spider. (Just so your humans out their can understand. Their are no Æthiran black widows of course.) And on eather side back on is head body part the creature had two small wings. It had a two mandibles large around is mouth on the front of it head which their sometime shot out small electric charges in betwine.

The creature spoke with a echoing voice: "Ahh... You have finally open the portal... It was a long time ago initiate Shadowstar... I was afraid that i would never heard form you again. Maybe we could make a deal again?"

Archmage Alterreality answered: " I'm not initiate Shadowstar. The only one i have ever heard of name Shadowstar was Archmage Shadowstar who more then a 1000 years ago and was one of the first to travel betwine the stars. I'm Archmage Alterreality "

The strange Alien answered: "Hmm... You all look the same... But maybe we could make a deal then... I'm sure we have something that can be of use for you Archmage Alterreality... I could offer you power beyond you wildest dreams....."

Archmage Alterreality answered: "The only thing i need is a way to stop my enemies. I and my pealop have bin under attack from our former allies who betrayed us. And i need a way to stop them."

The strange Alien answered: "Ahh... We can help you with that... We can promise to defeat all you enemies... My forces stand ready to aid you right... Now..."

Archmage Alterreality answered skeptically: "But what do you gain out of this. Do you not ask anyhing in compensation?"

The strange Alien answered:  "Ooo... But we do gen something out of this... We hate betrayers... And we wish to punish them... For their betrayal... And we once swear... To protect the Stargate... Now... Is out time... To keep our promis...."

Archmage Alterreality answered: "Well i guess i do not have mush choices"

The strange Alien answered: "Good..."

Soon a armies of the stage alien creatures called Echin streamed forth from the gate. Black metallic organic looking machines and strange looking devices. Is was almost incredible that the large stargate could handle it all. Soon Some of the organic machens started to build new factories in the underground caves and at the bottom of the black seas of Star Sapphire. The Echin keep sending surplices through the stargate and soon Archmage Alterreality have build a army greater then any before and all in secret. And not a momant to late. The defenses of Star Sapphire was staring to fail not that the local feudal lord Finlay manage to mount a coordinated attack. But then the Echin Armies retaliated with such forces that both Archmage Alterreality and his enemies where suprices. They quickly started to kill of every enemy in on the planet surface and lunch attack out in to orbit to damage the enemies Starships. Billions of small drones swarm over the enemy and giant organic mechs build by the new factories crush anything that got in their way. Star Sapphire was free once again.

Sha the leader of the Echin that have answered Archmage Alterreality call for help said: "Ahh... See.... They are on their run now... Now we going to hunt them down... And punish them for their betrail... Next phase... Is to be initiated..."

With the first phase done second phase was initiated. Large Space Shipyard where being constructed in orbit and soon ships where being pump out. The factories and newly contacted mines stated to produse the new raw matrial that was needed. so mush resources where produse that some of it was send back in to the stargate. Soon the all the traffic in the to the stargate where surplice shipment and captured enemies that where going to the Echin home world. Archmage Alterreality started to think that he may have done a pact with the devil and this could very well cost him a lot more then he expected still Alterreality knew that as the situation look now he could not do mush and could only hope for the best.

The battle continued on and Archmage Alterreality enemies quickly fell to the Echin and Alterreality armies. Then one day the last of Alterreality was defeated and Alterreality said to Sha: "You have now defeated my all of my enemy. You can go back now so we both can rebuild after this horbal war."

But Sha answered: "Ahh... But those that betrayed you... Are not dead... The Conclave... The Exiles... The other feudal lords... They did not help you... In you time of need... They need to learn their lesson... They need to die..."

Archmage Alterreality answered with a desperate voice: " But you can not do that. They do not deserve to die." Then Alterreality calmed down: "Verywell then. Do what you have to do."

Archmage Alterreality have dreaded this momant and planed for it. He had allready made preparations. A he had assemble a Elite team of the best Technomancer he knew and made his way to the stargate. Alterreality have collected data on his mystires guest all along. He knew their weaknesses now. He knew how he could deafeat them. Armed with bio weapons design to kill his enemy, micro nukes, environmental armor and several minor gadgets Alterreality and his team walk through gate. They arrived instantly at the on top of a platform suspended in the air inside the Black metallic tower. Alterreality had counted on this however and perpared. But before he made his way down from the plateform he send a last message to his loyal army on the other side of the Stargate: " Close the Stargate and warn the Conclave and the Exiles about the Echin. May the Shadow Emperor be with you and may you all forgive me for my sins." after that transmission instructions how to deactivate the Stargate and protect it form access form the Echin. Alterreality also gave them instruction to give the tomes that started all this trouble in to Conclave. Archmage Alterreality then procedes to deactivate the gate from their side. It would take a almost a millennium before the gate was open again.

Back in Æthirans space the Conclave and the Exiles where quickly notefide by this new treat and they instantly started to mobilized their forces. The Echin became confuse when the gate close and their contact with the high command was lost. A second Great galactic war was fought out millions died on both side but in the end thanks to Archmage Alterreality deception the Æthirans prevailed.

The Aftermath

The wars was both very damaging but lead to new technological development. A lot of technology of Goshvoth and Echin technology was reverst enginered and the Æthirans became the dominate race in the region for many years. But the Conclave limited the power and their right to interact with other lord and alien spices. the Conclave also gave the Exiles direct controle over several world to compsate for the indirect controle the Exile had enjoyed begore and a new shard world declaration was drawn up . Exiles reluctantly accepted this when and several of the liberal local lords where given the option to become some of the first world put in care of the Exiles. Most of those that got the offer accepted it. The Stargate was open almost a millennial after the war. On the other side was found a small Empire almost identical to the old Æthiran Empire. A small conclave rule the over a the ruins of the once mighty Echin Civilization. This new Æthiran Empire was late absorb in to old Æthiran Empire without any problem and the new Conclave members where aloud to work in the old Conclave. Archmage Alterreality after deafeatinf the Echin and help building the new Æthiran Empire in the Echin sector he retired from poltics and war locking him self up in his new laboratory. As the year went by his people saw him less and less often and one day he dispeared leaving his laboratory hind the hand of his Echin assistance and muttering something that about how this new Empire was not new att all. Their are some that believe that he still live and wanders the Galaxy to find is secrets. But if that wear the case then he would be one of the oldest creatures in existence. On the other hand he was the farther of Necromancy. A few of the Goshvoth where put in zoos and are not considers to be quite rare. Technomance collect this what they call savage spices from a age past. As for the Echin well... Deep withing the most secretive libraries many of them works as scholars, scriber and supplicants. Some have bin able to reach higher ranks but all are kept hidden from the world. And most surprisingly is how well they have adapted to the Æthiran Empire. Few have ever seen them.

What about the small spices that climb on the Echin then? Well they still live. Infact they are a pest! Æthiran call them Squidlings. Nasty little pest. the Echin can seem to be able to handle however. But i will tell you more about the Squidling a other time.  ;)

Archmage Shadowstar and the early years of explortion

The first once that started to build a space program was actually the Exiles. It was also the Exiles that started to experiment with FTL communication and transportation but it was a technomancer called Shadowstar that would make the greatest contrebutions to FTL. Wile the Exiles have manage to construct a FLT link from Æthyx to the nearest star where the Exiles have made a small colony initiate Shadowstar as he was know as then have experimented on creating a craft that could move it self faster then light without the need of a primitive jumpgate like the one use by the Exiles. This could mean that in instead of using generation ships to get to the stars a one could use a true starship to explore and colonizes the universe. Shadowstar experimented with some stolen gravimetric manípulators from the Exiles which they use for the FLT link and was able to build a FTL drive. It was however far from perfect and it was still very slow. Only barely able to make it past the light barrier. But even if Shadowstar tried to keep this invention secret rumors of the devices started to leak out. Fearing that others would steal his work he mounted the devices on one of his masters experimental space ships and simply run away to explore the galaxy and to prefect his FTL drive. It would take Almost 200 years for him to comeback. When he returned with incredible stories about strange alien world. He paid his former master a hefty compensation for the stolen ship which included a large Zoo of animals, lots of Holo tomes and alien technical Artfacts and his master forgave him. To the Conclave he gave the technology of the FTL drive that had bin improved far beyond it original design incorporating strange alien artfacts in the hops that Conclave would let him become a part of the Empire again. the Conclave bestode him the title of Archmage as a thanks because they knew he could just escape without leaving them nothing and that the Exile's was not winning the FTL space race no posses the first colony outside of Æthyx star system but also they have started to create FTL drives. Not only that but a War betwine the Exiles and the Empire have bin slowly growing just erupted some years prior to Shadowstars return. Even with the Empires nuclear arsenal, their larger Space fleet and their huge army they could not hit the exiles where it really hurt because of the Exiles FTL superiority. But with this new technology the Empire was able to threaten every part of the Exiles world. Even so the war in the end did not have any clear winners or losers. the Exiles willfully accepted annexation to prevent any more bloodshed on both sides as long as they where able to be autonomous withing the Empires borders.  The conclave excepted this as they started to worry about the other aliens Archmage Shadowstar have told about. The Conclave would with the Exiles long have a monopoly on FTL technology.

The Blade Cult

Swords have long bin a part of Æthiran culture. No other weapon is hold in so high regard as a Sword even in a age with Atomic weapons and guns. The bladesmith a highly skilled Technomancer have allways bin in at the forefront of technological development. During the early iron age pattern welding was use to make the hardest and sharpest blades. In the Galactic ages Aggregated diamond nanorods, Ultrahard fullerite and other exotic materials are use to forger a blade that is hard enough to cut through diamond. Sometime blades are even made out of pure Energy often using the lessons learned from plasma lances crafting but a their are many bladesmiths and knights that do not think  Energy blades are true blades. Both straight edged swords and curved edged sword are manufactured and which type of blade is made in mainly dependent on local traditions. Blades with wave patter, zigzag, hocks or other unusual form are not common however as blade like that often are harder to use then regular blades but some use them because of their flashiness. Most blades are eather made to be use with 1 arm or with 2 upper arms. A few Swords have bin made need 4 arms to be wield properly but because most Æthiran have larger upper arms then lower arms and because they generally are taught as clumsy not many of blades 4 armed swords have bin made. Sword that use 2 arms in combat often comes with a pair of smaller blade  that run along side the arms or sometimes Shields run along side the arms use with the lower arms to help parry blows. Many Æthirans are ambidextrous so is not uncommon for Æthirans to be train in using 2 or 4 swords in combat. A few are even trained at the very deadly art of using 4 flexible sword at onces. A very hard skill to master indeed. Sword spears and double-bladed Sword staffs also a two very respected weapon but some argue that the double bladed Sword staffs is more a weapon for show then combat efficiently like the 4 hand sword. Some Swords gain mythical status and many of the finest blades are handed down from generation to generation.

One of the most mythic sword is the Metaphysics Blade. Rumored to be made by one of Purethought apprentices long after the battle of Star Sapphire this blade could supposedly cut thought space and time it self. Only the wielders own mind limit is power. The blade was slightly curved and black with a blue reflection and it said that those that starred straight at the blade surfaces where at risk of losing both their mind and soul when they gaze in to the endless sea of knowledge that ripled through blade. Most modern schoolers hold the blade only as myth but there are still those that search for it and there are countless thousands of blades, one more powerfull then the other that try to claim the title of Metaphysics Blade but none have even come near the mythical properties ascribe to the Sword.

Plasma Lance and other Plasma Blades
The Plasma Lances is a old weapon that have bin use for Millenniums before Æthiran intervened in the Necrid conflict. A weapon that use a projected coneformed force field to keep a hot plasma in places that is then use to cut through solid matrials. Most of these blades are blue thanks to Cherenkov radiation if no manipulation with the energy blade have bin made. On contact the forcefield releases the plasma producing severer damage. The user can also release a short burst of plasma by opening up the cone formed force field. A fearsome weapon indeed. Lately as Plasma Lance technology have miniaturized smaller energy blades have started to be prodused. Most are in the forms of wrist energy blades use by Assassins who prefer a weapon with high power of the blade that can be easily concealed with a push of a on the panel. Plasma Blades are the most common form of Energy blades.

I do not know. The Æthiran Metaphysics blade was forged by one of Purethought apprentices long after the battle of Star Sapphire according to Æthiran myth. His name is unknown but he is often called the Blacksmith or the Bladesmith. This was a very long time ago however when the Æthiran Stellar Empire was still young. And most schoolers believe it just a myth because the technology to forge a blade that even comes close to the power ascribed to the sword is even beyond what any Civilization is capable today.

I do not know enough to about the Unspoken to judge if their is a connection. If the blades is as powerfull as it rumored then any creature capable of wielding it would be like a God.

The following story is a RP.

The Story of the creation of the Om-exe

The Prelude

Silverstream captured several Omic and made her way back to her home planet Æridia. But what was going to be a short stop to refuel, drop off and get new orders soon turned it to a kidnapping drama when Ickik manage to hijack a escapepod and take Silverstream as a hostage. Ickik was granted a ship believing that he would not be able to run far thanks to the FTL distorting Temporial Guardian but they wear wrong. Ickik in his ignorances activated the and the two disappeared. (Damn you Æsh! Why did you not do you job and scan the Drone!  ;) )

Aboard the ship before Silverstream had disappeared she have started the standard cloning process that Æthiran Technomancers allway use when they captured a Alien species. But when Ickik disappeared silverstream and corrupted the starships computer the it seemed like the process had to be restarted. But when Silverstreams high master and teacher the Archphilosopher Lightstaff saw the project he was quickly draw to it simply because is difficulty. Many would say it would just have bin as easy to start a new cloning process but Lightstaff wanted it to go fast. He was able to recollect the data damage by Ickik and the purging program.

Now Lightstaff is starting the 3rd generation of clones. The 8 Omic of the 1st generation which Silversteam started and Lightstaff finish are healthy and well being put in to tests to see how well the cloning process works they are still just children as no growth acceleration was used. The 256 2nd Generation Omic are newly cloned. Their growth was accelerated but no other modifications we done. They are in ever way shape and form adult Omic but with a mind are still undeveloped. Many of these are send to more straining test which most of them will not survive. Some of them are given to the local chef to evaluate there use a food. (His concultion is that they tasted good with white wine souse but are a little Boonie and small. Squidlings are still going to be prefers as a Snack for the rich.) The 3rd Generation have just started. It planed that several new improved Omic races are going to be cloned. One of the are going to be bread to be fighting, spying and other Cov-ops missions to seek out Squidlings and other small creatures. The Project Dark Omic have started.



Chapter One

"Let see now how things are going. Hmm... There seem to be some additional mutations i did not expect but the computer predict that these mutations may actually increase the performances of them. Seems to be something that have bin laying latent in the gens sins the 1st generation. Maybe is comes because of the reset. Well dose not matter now." Said Lightstaff after going thought the data. Lightstaff goes thought the plans. "We will are going to create 5 diffrent breads of Omic. We will let the Shadow Emperor Sort out which onces is is worth of survival"

Lightstaff goes to the 1st area. "The 1st breed, the Omic Om-en is estmated to be a massive Knuckle-walking creature with hard armored plates. It will have a some ability to regenerate damage but with is ability to curl up like a armored ball smiler to a Squilding so will not matter that mush if regeneration is low. It will be about 1.5 meters tall."

Lightstaff then goes to the 2nd area. "The 2nd breed, the Omic Omol is estmated to be as small as a regular Omic. It will be hairless but have a scaly armor plates like Æthirans. The plates will not be as hard as Æthirans plates. The Omol will have the same skin pigmentations as Squidlings so they will be able to addapt to the background. Also have the same ability to generate a static electricity to help the climb walls. Should be a excellent spy."

Lightstaff then goes to the 3rd area. "The 3rd breed, the Omic Om-in is estmated to be around 1 meters high and will be the fasterst one to learn. Their heads will be bigger. The two arms will have two hands usefull to operate devices. Like Æthiran hands they will have 3 fingers and 1 thumb. The Om-in will also have 5 tail instead of the 3 usual. They will be the weakest of the all but there ability to learn should help them survive."

Lightstaff then goes to the 4th area "The 4th breed, the Omic Omup is estmated to be fastest of them all. it will be interesting to see how this creature will messure up is not as tall as the larger Omic breads but is long and have a vissues bite. The lungs are also proportionately bigger to help the Blood circulation. 4 legs and 3 tails."

Lightstaff then goes to the 5th area "The 5th breed, the Omic Om-ex is estmated be smiler to the Om-en in some ways. Both are made for combat but the Om-ex is more offensive in is designed. If got a furry hide like most other Omic. very muscle build. Even fast regeneration then a Om-en. Quick reactions. 2 arms 2 legs and 3 tails"

The Omic are quickly grown in the Vats and on there "Birthday" they are outfitted with simple Cybernetic implants made to help them learn faster. They are all put in to special schooling programs where there are thought the basic and are tough to speech Æthiran. Even with the help of technology this process takes longer then growing them did. "Is just like a Robot. It talks a week to build but a months to even give it a rudimentary program." said Light staff. Now some of the first and finest are ready to be tested. A Om-en and a Om-ex is put in to a small arena to test there combat skills.
Title: Re: The Æthirans
Post by: Tesla on July 23, 2006, 11:09:13 am
The Om-en looks around in surprise, then at the Om-ex. Then rolls up into a ball and starts to roll at a hig speed towards the Om-ex. The Om-ex turns around from looking around and wondering what the hell is going on and sees a the ball approaching, thinking fast he runs around and jumps on the ball, seeing it won't open he picks up the ball and hurls it into a wall. The Om-en reacts by opening up charging at the Om-ex. The Om-ex grabs the Om-en by its tail and smashes it into a floor, then starts puncing its head until the armour breaks. Reaching inside its head it pulls it apart from the inside and rips the carcass apart. Then smiles and looks up, and speaks struggling to piece together the words, "f-funny, more!"

"Don't worry about that my little friend. Please tell me your name you teacher have given you and i will have a suprices for you."


The Technomancer teachers takes care of a large number of studies and acts as mothers for the clones. This is common use for any clone be it Æthirans or any other species. most of the time the clones are very loyal to their teachers. Sometimes a little to loyal. If that happens then the teachers is often replaces as it is consider not to good if the teacher or the students gets to attached to each other.

The door close behind him and the door back to the other Om-ex opens.

Later Strong is taken to a other test. This time Lightstaff is going to see what happen when several omics meet. 1 of each races are place in the Arena. In the center of the Arena is box made out of wood. In the box there is small sphere made out of aggregated diamond nanorods with a small panel on it. Around the box a metal circle.

"Now let see if you all can work to gather" said the voices. "In the box there is a sphere. Open it and you will all be rewarded."

The Omup dashes forward and grabs the box, "mine" he shouts and runs around the room, surrounding the rest. The Om-in rolls his eyes and stucks his foot out and the Omup trips up and flies into the wall, landing in a bloody mess on the floor. Meanwhile the Om-ex finds the Om-en familiar and starts to kill it. The Omol just climbs a wall and hides in a corner.

The speaker system takes no damage as is hidden behind the walls high up in the arena. Infact as the speaker system works on the same way as other sound projection systems used as weapons and for holographic system Strong's trow even through it was dead on the sound sources it was far off from the sound projector it self. The Sound sources starts to spin around Strong. "Ha ha ha! So impulsive! Maybe the other can figure it out."

The Om-ex runs forward and picks up the ball again, and clutches it tightly. The Om-in is in the same corner as the Omol and whispers something to him, the Omol smiles and walks along the ceiling to Strong in the corner clutching the ball. Dashing down and taking the Om-ex by surprise it grabs the ball and runs back over the ceiling to the Om-in and gives it to him. He opens the ball and looks inside.

Inside is a small holographic projector. It suddenly projects a image "Congratulations! You have solved to puzzle! You will all have a reward waiting for you. You may also keep this Holographic player as a special reward for solving the last puzzle!" The Small projector start to show a flash little animation and play a song.

The doors they enter the arena opens and the familiar smell of Gindel files the room.

"Well Well so someone finally open the Orb. I'm not that suprices that a Om-in would open it to tell the truth. What is your name Om-in?"

The automatic security systems activates. It isolate the transmitter. Creates a artificial duplicate environment to fool the system. Send a Corruption AI to the spy's system. It analyze all data and sends it back to the security system without the spy even knowing what happen. The AI then takes over the ships and kills all software except those need to run the subsystems then makes the spy a prisoner of his own ship then sets out to a Small outpost. The ship is the confiscated and the Spy is send to a Mind reader as the Æthirans call it. The Specialist locks the spy on a bed an take down the SQUID. Several SQUID sensors are places on the spy and the process of mapping the spy mind starts. Later when Mind reader thinks he can not get any more infomation with the squids help only he starts to use drugs testing the out one by one to see which one works best. This torture  continues for months.

OOC: The fact is that he joined without my knowledge. He also did a lot of things that would be hard if not imposable. I just played with the same rules and guess what? I can do it because is my tread. I could have excepted him in the story IF he had talk to me. And do not come with he could not contact me. That is what PMs are for and i often answer my PMs shortly after receiving them.

PS: And i did not accualy kill the spy.

Æthiran Entertainment

The most common entertainment in Æthiran culture are several blood sports including the duels that often flock a huge number of spectators. These fights and blood sports are often recorded but not broadcasted. Far form every sport end in bloodshed however. It is expensive to train a gladiator and then let him die in his first fight. True Duels however tend to end in deaths due to there nature. Simple training sessions are often public to. Everyone is allowed to watch these events from the simples slave to the highest nobles. Its often seen as educational and it helps to make the masses less rebellious. The with the hottest blood often ends up as gladiators them self and most gladly accept this honor as gladiators live a life more privileged then Serfs. The few gladiators that lives until retirement gain the rank of freeman. Sometimes Nobles or Technomacers to becomes gladiators but to become a true gladiator they most forsake their worldly items and start a new life. Most Nobles and Technomacers however choices to training matches against each other instead as the fame gained form being a gladiator is not often considered worth losing everthing one owns. The most common reason why a Noble or Technomacer do this however is because they try to run away from there past and in the gladiator schools there often protected from former rivals. Is often common to pin diffrent exotic animals against each other. These tend to be clones breed for combat. Some of them are even from developed Alien cultures but are treated as none sentient animals. Many Alien races however if they show promis in combat may become True Gladiators with the same benefits as Æthiran Gladiators. This can be a way for a race to elevate the self from the status of a mer pet. Still many pets have it better then the Slaves and Serfs working in the farms, mines and factories on the Æthiran worlds.

You got it Huggs. Serf are what social class of citizens are called in a society of Serfdom.

Elller vad vi på svenska skull kalla live ägna bönder. Det är näst intill trälldom me bönderna va en del av marken och inte egendomen av en specific herre.

Chapter Two

Then suddenly the hole base starts to shake. Alarms start to go off and all the lights turn blue. "Warring, Warning. Base it under attack by rebel terrorists. Man all posts." said the speakers all over the base. Then in the Omic Omol raising area a Large Æthiran in metallic armor blast Through the door. He rushes in with a Sword in one hand and a Gun in the other. The Armor is 3,5 meters tall looks a little bulky and colored in Gold and Dark Blue colors. "We are the Knights of Freedom! We are here to rescue you for you oppressors!" Shouts the knight and then he notices he is standing on something. "Ops.. I think i may have crushed one" he said to a other knight in Gold and Red that just walk in. "Well it happen" said the other knight. One of the teachers of the two teachers walk up and shouts "You will not take them!" the other teacher try to protect the small Omic Omol by hidding them behind her. Then the first knight takes up the his gun and shots the teacher that tried to stop them. "No please do not take my children!" begged the teacher that is trying to protect the Omic Omol like she where there mother. The first knight then holsters his gun and walk up to her and gabs her arm and lift her up so hard that he almost rip it off her and readies his sword to strike he. The Omic starts to run and hide but one of the say and screams out: "Let her go!" . The other knight the says "Yes. Do not kill her. we might need her if we are going to get the other creature with with us. You know how attached some may be to there brainwashers." The first knight then responds: "Very well then. We will take he with us." Then he carelessly trows her in to the wall. "You stay there wile we check up on the other captives!" shouts the knight at the teacher and then he walk out leaving them alone with the other knight.

The Knights of freedom makes there way through the installation and try to gather up as many Omic as they can. The teachers and other lowranking technomancers try to stop them but have no chance against the well coordinated attack. Apparently the attackers knew acualy when the base was the weakest. They hit when the base was replacing most of is troops. Some of the Omic gladly go with the Knights wiles others will not follow without there teachers. There all taken to a large smugling ship of Exile design and loaded. Then all hell brakes lose. A coordinated attack by the few troops remaining make the most of the teachers and those Omic that loyal to them attack the knight. The knights rushes out of the smugglers ship and many Omic and escape. The ship is order to start without the Knights that will take there battleship instead hoping less of the Omic will get a change to escape. Many die in the turmoil both Teach, Knights, Omic and Technomancers. The ship leaves the base in a hasty retreater wile the Knight fight. The ship activate is FLT drive and escape the star system.

The ship is now hiding in a asteroid field waiting for futher instructions. there are only about 600 Omic is on the ship and 3 teachers. Many of them are wounded.

Strong looks around, standing in a corridor surrounded by other Om-ex. Looking down, another Om-ex lies at his feet, pulling him up by his neck he looks at him, "you are Little Strong now. Come and help make red-juice on big head ones, they think they so great!" The other one looks surprised, "what red-juice?" He asks. Strong smiles, "like fruit, squeeze hard and juice come out," he rubs his stomach, "yummy juice. Come see."

Walking down the corridor, Strong finds an unconsious Om-in and picks it up. "Look, this is how we make juice." He breaks the Om-ins neck and tears it head off, chucking the head away he turns the body upside down and lets the blood drip onto his tongue, "mmmmm, you try now" Strong smiles and gives the carcass to Little Strong, he licks the blood and thinks for a second. Then he grins, "wow! This good!" An Om-in looks in horror and backs away. Little Strong grabs him and looks at Strong, "like this?" He asks and rips off the head. "Now go find more Strongs" he says and points at himself, "tell them we get big heads, go tell them how to make red-juice. Mmmmm, lots of red-juice!" Little Strong nods "more for me!" Strong pats him on the back, "no worry, more than just big heads, other ones too, even small ones that you not even need to make red-juice, you put in mouth and feel it run through your teeth! We will have feast, now go or we will see your own red-juice!" Little Strong frowns then runs off to alert more Om-ex. And so, they go on a killing spree. :)

Meanwile in a other part of the ship the 3 teachers and a lot of omic gathered. "Well we can no stay in this place we need to move on! Lets take this trashheap back to the base." said a teachers with brown skinned in a dark rob. "No I'm not going back to those slavepits!" Said one of the Om-in. "You be quite!" replied the  brown skinned in a dark rob teacher. "I  we to go back home!" whined a few Omol gathering around a teacher with green skin in a green robe. "Yes why do we not go home and why don't you want to go home Om-in?" ask the Green teacher. "Why would i go back! All your kind do is hit us and force us to do stupid stuff and learn stupid things!" replied the Om-in. "I have never hit one of my children. What are you talking about?" ask the Green teacher. "Well all the teachers have diffrent ways to train there children as you put. Some use a lot more violences then is needed." said a red skinned in a golden robe teacher looking at the brown teacher. "And i think you to attached to you Omol Greendream" added the brown teacher and looks at green teacher. "I agree. You know you have to let them go" said the the Red teacher. "No i will never abandon my children!" said Greendream and try to gather up the Omol as she can. "That right! There going to take away your children!" said the Om-in noticing Greendreams weakness. "I said be quiet!" Shout the Brown teacher at the Om-in. "Calm down now. You are not helping the situation Dragonsword. Let us make our way to the bridge as see if we can not get this ship moving." said the red teacher to the brown. "Yes lets go to the bridge Westwind!" said  Dragonsword to the red teacher.

The group of 3 Teachers and several Omic starts to make there way to the bridge. It is a little tricky as the teachers are not familiar with the large ships layout but they manage to find there way. Dragonsword takes the commaned chair and try to activate the system. "Computer activate the engine and plot a course back to the base" said Dragonsword. "You have not bin granted access to the ship." Replayed the computer. "Then who have access then?" Asked Dragonsword. "Any member that can identifier him self as a member for the most noble order of the Knights of Freedom and any Dark Omic have access to the ships system." Replayed the computer. "Did you say Dark Omic?" Asked Westwind. "Yes" Replayed Computer. "Then i order one of you Omic to give me access to this infernal contraption!" said Dragonsword. "No! Now i will be in charge! We are many and you are few! We will take this ship and leave this place." Said the Om-in that have have opposed Dragonsword earlier. "No we want to go home!" Said a lot of Omol. "But they will take away Greendream from you when we get home. You will never see her again! Do you want that?" Said the Om-in with a smile on his lips. "No do not take Greendream! We love Greendream! Do not take her away!" replayed the Omol and started to become nerves. "Your trickery will not get you far Om-in!" Said Dragonsword and readies his hand to hit the Om-in. Then several Om-en that had kept a low profile earlier walk up and block the way for Dragonsword. "You are not the Master now! We will not let you hit him!" said one of the  Om-en. "Fine! You will all die when the time comes! Mark my words!" said Dragonsword and rushed out of the bridge. "Computer tell use how we can get as far away from the base we just left as possible" said the Om-in. "There is a secret old jumpgate in this system that lead to a abandon Rebel base." replayed the computer. "Good Computer. Set a course toward the Jumpgate. I never want to go back to that Hellhole." replayed the Om-in. "As you wish." replayed the computer.

The ship makes it way to the jumpgate and travels to the abandon Rebel base. There now in the part of space that the Æthiran call the new horizon far from the Imperial Space. This part of space have for a very long time bin treated as a dangerous place civilizations that have evolve to quickly for the own good.

Little Strong runs around the ship finding other Om-ex and showing them red-juice, eventually he has about 50 and he returns to Strong, "got more, we go find big heads now?" Strong pats Little Strong "good, now we find them." One Om-ex jumps forward, "I saw them go to ship front, lots of red juice in there." Strong looks at the one who spoke, "good, we go now to ship front." The Om-ex start to walk randomly through the corridors until Strong stops, "uh, which way is ship front?" "over here!" The other replies, pointing at a door.  Strong starts banging on it, "let me in!"
Title: Re: The Æthirans
Post by: Yokto on August 15, 2006, 06:43:34 am
The Omic and the teachers inside the bridge could not hear the Om-ex outside as there where banging on the door but the computer could. "There is a group of Om-ex outside. Should i let them in?" Ask the computer. "Sure wh..." Said the Om-in but was abruptly interrupted by Westwind. "No do not. There trained to kill and know of little else. We do not know what carnage that may follow if we let them in on deck." said westwind. "OK do not let them in then" said the Om-in. "As you wish." replay the computer. "It was a good thing we lock the door after Dragonsword left." said Westwind. "How come you did not open the doors to the Om-ex computer when they asked to enter?" ask the Om-in. "Even if I'm must follow the orders of any Omic i is only on the bridge that anyone can comman the ship right now. The Knights limit the use of voice commans to this area only for some reason." answered the computer. "How safe are we at the bridge?" ask the Om-in. "The doors seem to be smiler to what the Empire use as safety doors. They should hold out any attack from a Om-ex if that is what worries you Om-in" answered Westwind. "Is no the Om-ex that worries me. It is there any other solders on board or what that Dragonsword could do that worries me." answered the Om-in.

Meanwile most Omic start to run around in the ship without knowing what to do with there freedom.
Title: Re: The Æthirans
Post by: Tesla on August 16, 2006, 01:21:31 pm
The Om-ex hesitates, realizing they can't get in. Strong looks up, "big heads know what do, we make one say." Strong grabs a half consious Om-in . "We want get in door, you say amd not die. Find way to get in." Strong opens his hand and drops it to the floor. The horrified Om-in looks up tearfully. "I would rather die!" He says bravely. Strong frowns and grabs him again, "you made choice." About to break its neck, the Om-in suddenly pipes up, "no! Wait! I can't help you, but he can!" He says and points to an Om-in on the ceiling in the corner trying to hide. "Very good, he will help, but you didn't." Strong breaks his neck and the Om-in manages a quick scream before death. Strong reaches up and plucks the shivering Omol from the ceiling. Holding it in his hand, he brings it up to his face. "You make the door open and we not eat you. Okay?" The Omol slowly nods and Strong smiles, "right." Placing him on the ground the Omol scurries off.

Soon the Omol climbs soundlessly out from a vent. He quickly shouts, "open door." and the door slides open. The Om-ex cheer as the others in the bridge look on in terror, Strong shouts, "begin the meal!"

First the Omol start to scatter but then they run to Greendream. Is unclear if they try to protect he or seek protection.  The Om-en creates a wall to block the path. The few Om-in start to speak with each other and the one who have taken command steps forward for the higher deck looking over the Om-en and Om-ex. "What is this! What do you think you will gain out of storming the bridge? Have you even taught of the dangers that lurk in the corridors and what do you do? You rush in to the bridge hoping for some carnage? Ha without me and my kind this ship will no go anyware! You will die a slow and painfull death in this cold void if the solders do to finish you of before that."

Post by: Tesla on August 16, 2006, 01:43:57 pm
"YOU DIE NOW!" Strong screams, not listening, the Om-ex run around grabbing anyone they can and decapitating them. He grabs the Om-in who spoke by the neck. "Any last words?"
Title: Re: The Æthirans
Post by: Yokto on August 16, 2006, 02:05:27 pm
The carnage starts and both Om-en and Om-ex dies as the both try to establish dominances. Both the Omol and Greendream manage to escape unnoticed out of the bridge during the turmoil. Westwind try to hide in one of the corners.

"And what will you do when we all dead? You how are you going to survive? Without our kind you will be stuck on this craft!" said the Om-in defiantly.

"Yes let me drive the ship and get of the bridge. Try to find something usefull to do instead of messing up the bridge. I have a ship to run!" Said the Om-in.

Meanwile several solders that have be hiding. "OK we need to hijack this ship and take it back to base. We can not let these creatures escape. They could become a powerfull tool in the hands of our Enemy!" Said the Knight as they start to move toward the bridge.

"Are you dense? Can you no here the blasting in the corridor! You must do something or we will all be dead! No only me but you to!" Said the Om-in getting worried about the approaching solders.

Meanwile. "OK Just kill as many as you can see. Spare no one!" Said the Knight in charager. "Sir I'm worried that without our heavy armor we will not be able to withstand a lot of attacks." said one of the knights. "Then make sure you kill them before the swarm over you!" replayed the knight in charge. "Yes my lord!" replayed the knight.
