I give you the Syrbor(Sire-Bor):
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/Syrbor.jpg)

History
The Syrbor are a race of extremely intelligent beings.  Their home planet, Frittera, is actually a moon orbiting an enormous gas giant.  They enjoyed thousands of years of very little war and great achievements in science and technology.  They prospered for a long time until they began devoloping technology that could contradict the beliefs of the larger religions of the planet.  With new theories for space exploration the Syrbor would soon enter into a great Dark Age at what should have been the beginning of great age.

They have had advanced technology capable of exploring the galaxy for centuries but have been unable to use it.  For 3 centuries the Syrbor were locked in the Great TriCrusade.  A war involving three factions, all of which had differing views on what the world-wide religion should be.

Before the TriCrusade however the Syrbor enjoyed 5 millenia of mostly free thought.  In the beginning of these first 5000 years is when the Syrbor first began to organize into cities.  Before then they had only been small tribes of mostly hunter-gatherers.  When cities began to spring up tribes would start to unify and take up residence together.  Each tribe would be given certain tasks in the new cities according to how they had lived before and the skills of their tribe.  For example, a tribe that was known for building strong and durable huts would be put in charge of construction of new city structures while a tribe that had been very spiritual would become that city's religious leaders.  This of course is how it usually worked, not all cities were a compilation of different tribes.

Throughout the 5 millenia (known as the Eon of Progress) they Syrbor engaged in mainly only small conflicts among city-states usually over the rights over land or buildings.  There were a few larger wars but miraculously the Syrbor existed for suh a long time with very little strife.  (It should also be noted that the Syrbor were of the first evolution on their planet, there had never been a mass extinction, this fact was due to very little volcanic and tectonic activity as well as the gas giant's great gravitational pull that seemed to draw any impending meteors or comets away from the planet and sling-shot them out into space.)

It was during this time that the word of the Three Divine was spread.  Many pilgrimages were made all across the world by Holy men and women to visit mysterious holy areas that were mentioned in the ancient tablets and to gather all the tablets into one place.  The ancient tablets are a set of 18 12-foot tall stones, they were divided into sets of three, 6 stones for each of the divine.  Each tells stories of each of the divine and the responsibilities that each divine holds.  These tablets were said to have appeared mysteriously in the ground beneath 3 different cities.  Each set was unearthed during the excavation for the cities' new Grand Tower(a sort of cross between a castle and a town-hall).  The cities were all spread across different sides of the world.  It is a great mystery to this day how these tablets were placed in such places, how they were discovered simultaneously, and above all who made them.

The pilgrimages made during this time though not only uncovered all the tablets and the places mentioned within them but also spread the word of the Three Divine.  The word seemed so powerful and there was so much detail in just a few of the tablets that it would convert anyone who heard it from the spiritual beliefs they once held.  Belief in the world spirits has long been a dead religion, it had no texts or true events to back it up, just hunches and supersition.  This made it weak enough to be broken and replaced by the word of the Three Divine.

The 3 Factions:
The Divines' Unity:  This was the most aggressive, and originially the largest faction of the three.  It's beliefs were rooted in the oldest religion of Frittera, the belief in the three Divines.  Each Divine(or God) ruled over the world with equal power, every century those three Divine would pass into the Endless Realm and three more Divine would be chosen from the souls of those who had perished within the last century.  They Divines' Unity was greatly angered by the uprising of the Neodiluculo and even more angered when even more Syrbor orgnaized into the Alliance of Stars.  Some new and actually accepted the fact that there was life on other planets and there was the ability to reach it but they did not want the ancient beliefs to die, they therefore began a program to place a giant network of satelites above the planet that would prevent the passage of any vessel to space and also block any transmissions.

Neodiluculo Federation:  This was the smallest of the factions, it believed in a new religion with little basis.  This religion stated that the Universe was made up of infinite Gods, each with their own planet to rule over.  Each one of these Gods had seperate Demigods to rule over each nation or continent on each world.  And these Demigods had seperate lower deities that guided a select few members of a race to be their leaders.  The Neodiluculo Federation believed that new dawn was coming and that their Demigod had been chosen by the God of the planet to lead the entire Galaxy into battle against the forces of evil and the only way to prove themselves worthy of such a task was to assimilate or destroy the rest of their race.  Although they would resort to killing they much preferred to assimilate new members and when it became obvious that a Syrbor did not wish to change sides they would attempt endlessly to brainwash him.

The Alliance of Stars:  This group started out as the second largest at the beginning of the war but by the end Had become twice as large as the Nediluculo Federation and the Divine's Unity combined.  They had actually existed for a very long time but had never organized.  They were the scientists of their world, the believers that there was a logical explanation for all, those who did not just take to heart the words of the ancient tablets but who searched for the existence of higher being if there was one.  They were the ones who long ago devoloped the technology for space travel.  This group's accepting and level-headed nature gained them many supporters who deserted the other two factions.  They named themselves the Alliance of stars for it was their quest to reach the stars, against the will of the Divines' Unity.


Now after the three centuries of chaos The Alliance of Stars has emerged triumphant and taken control of all of the Divines' Unity's land and has sentenced those guilty who have done great evils against others of their kind.  Slowly but surely all Syrbor are drifting towards the beliefs of the Alliance of Stars, which is now the governing body of the planet and still keeps the name "Alliance of Stars."  The Satellites above the planet have been deactivated and removed and the Syrbor have finally began the exploration they have long sought. 

Their long time spent on their planet has actually given them much time to perfect the process of space travel without actually threatening lives.  The Syrbor ring ships have a large Quantum Ring around them that bends and manipulates space to the point where their ships can travel hundreds of thousands of lightyears within mere seconds.

The Alliance of Stars also have additional Technology in the use of nanotechnology and biomechanics, they are currently deeply experimenting with living yet pilotless fighter ships.

With the Tricrusade now over Frittera is going through a Rennaisance.  With new technologies being researched and the construction of the new government, the Syrbor may finally breathe and think freely.

Government:  The Syrbor have established a new Government under a new Flag and with a new name, The Fritteran Republic(originally the Alliance of Stars).  This Government is yet to be completely solidified.  As of now the planet is ruled by the Fritteran High Council, located in Rengala, the planetary capital.  This council is composed of representatives from different sections of the world, there are a total of 8 sections that are clos to equal in size and population.  Each section's representative is also the ruler of that section, with their own council to help them with affairs within their section.  The High Council has a total number of 9 members.  The 9th member is the Prime Fritteran(currently Telgar).  The Prime Fritteran's purpose is to watch over the interactions between the 8 other members, settle disputes, keep things civil in meetings, to break a tied vote and to also propose solutions.

Technologies
Quantum Ring:  This is the most notable of all Syrbor achievements.  It has been in development since before the Tricrusade and has been tested in Alliance research centers ever since the first design was created.  With the Network of the Unity's satelites it was impossible to test it in space, which actually turned out for the better.  Being forced to try and try again on the planet in large vacuum chambers caused the Syrbor to make rapid advancements in their technology without spending so many resources on a full-scale deep-space program.  The Quantum ring works by taking the shape of space for millions of lightyears in front of it and combressing until the end that the ship wants to emerge from is almost touching where the ship is already sitting.  The space that was inbetween the ship is pushed outward and compressed, making the trip much shorter.  However this limits the ships to traveling in "Quantum Bursts" if it needs to navigate around a large object such as a planet or star.

Nanotechnology:  Unlike many other races who use nantechnology to create structures or use it for war the Syrbor use it for medical reasons.  Syrbor "nanocells" were developed halfway through the last century of the Tricrusade by the Alliance of Stars.  Nanocells are nanbots who act as regenerative cells, they can repair a simple wound or even help rebuild a dying organ.  More advanced but far more costly and experimental forms of the cells can be used to even regenerate limbs, although this form of nanocell is extremely rare and is still in test phases.

Living Ships:  Living ships are currently not even created yet.  They are still being researched.  Small models and tests with such technology have been made but nothing has been made yet that can actually be completely functional.  Much more time is needed until even a working prototype will be made of a living ship.

The antennae are their form of sensing smells (and no he's not rubbing it, his hand just happens to be infront of it.  Besides if he IS touching it how is picking you nose porn ???)  And I know the Quantum Ring seems very warp-drive and the Ship looks Vulcan.  The Vulcan part wasn't on purpose, besides I've been drawin ring ships since before Star Trek Enterprise came out with those Vulcan ships.  As for the Quantum Ring, yes it bends space but bending space is one of the few actual ways that scientist believe we may actually explore space(even though its still a theory).  Anyways, glad you guys like them!  I always try to go for something that is as unearthly as possible while still having distinctive parts and expressions that seem they could actually exist. ;D

//The Syrbor have encountered no alien races on their planet for as long as history has been written.  Any Organic Kangorians that may be on our planet are hear without our knowledge, which we extremely doubt.  Even if there are Organic Kangorians, The Alliance of Stars would grant them safe harbor until proof of their wrong-doings could be given or until they commit crimes against the people of Frittera.  We ask that the Mechanized Kangorians accept this and respect our policy on this issue.  If any large problem shall arise we will be in contact with you.

A double functional battleship and defensive orbital platform.  Although the Syrbor currently have no interest in war they are aware that with expansion into the galaxy comes the threat of hostile races.  Three are currently in orbot around Frittera and a fourth is to be given to OTHER as a token of peace.  Along with the shipt come the Syrbors' most advanced Quantum Ring technology.  We hope that this is to the liking of the OTHER Diplomats and those they represent.

Solar System:  The Syrbor solar system is named Jangra, containing only 3 planets. 
Cyonar: The closest to the sun it is a relatively small planet made up of solid rock and holding an unbreathable atmosphere, it is incapable of sustaining life and has no moons. 
Kremar: The second planet from the sun and also the large gas giant that Frittera Orbits around, it has an atmosphere rich in hydrogen, helium and Neon.  It has 4 moons, one of which is Frittera, the Syrbor homeworld.  Syrbor is the largest of the moons but not the only one capable of sustaing life.  Of the three other moons(Der, Reeng, and Ubel) Ubel is the second largest and has the beginnings of very early life.  It is still largely volcanic and contains organisms no more complex than a legged Krato Worm(a species indigineous to Frittera, I may draw it later).  Kremar's orbit is nearly a perfect circle around it's sun(Named Jangra, just like the system).
     Frittera:  The homeworld of the Syrbor, holds numerous life and is the only celestial body in the system to hold intelligent
     life.  It also has a very radical orbital path and therefore very rapidly changing seasons.  Since Kremar's orbit is near-circular it's
     climate is always the same but Frittera orbits AROUND Kremar, and is the furthest set-back moon from it.  It's seasons change as it
     completes an orbit around Kremar, as it moves closer to the sun and then further away, eventually being blocked completely from
     the sun's light by Kremar, this however only lasts about half a day on Frittera though and is called "The Frozen Night."
     Ubel:  Ubel began to be explored just before the TriCrusade, in fact it was the spark that lit the fire.  The finding of the
     beginnings of life on Ubel lead to the great war over beliefs, it was the last space mission the Syrbor would make until the end of
     the Three Century war.
Plinec: The third and last planet in the Janga System is not very much further from the sun than Kremar but doesn't hold much of an atmosphere.  It may be close to the size of Frittera but it's atmosphere is unbreathable like Cyonar's.  It's entire surface is pock-marked from impacts and mountainous from great tectonic activity(these tectonic shifts have declined though and the planet's surface is becoming less hostile for life).  It has one ring and one moon around it, it is being considered by the Syrbor to be Frittera-Formed(haha, I didn't even notice before that Frittera rhymes with terra) or at lest being colonized with domed cities primarily for research and later for population expansion.

Hey hope you guys liked this!  I think I'll start drawing some Fritteran wild life soon.

(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborCarrierandFighter.jpg)

This is the Syrbor's Carrier and the Transfighter which the Carriers hold in their bays.  Syrbor Carriers each have 6 bays, usually holding two squadron each but capable of holding a little over 3.  Each squadron contains 7 Transfighters.  The Transfighters are capable of space flight as well as atmospheric flight when their wings are depoyed.  While in space aerodynamics do not apply because there is not air to cut through, so the wings are retracted making the fighters a smaller target, but when in an atmosphere the wings are deployed to provide lift and more control during flight.  The Carrier and Transfighters are part of the Syrbor's new initiative to construct a large fleet of ships capable of defending Frittera along with any future settlements on new planets.  A contingent of three carriers have been sent to the Yunimius home world to help them in their fight against the Ulinium Empire.  This will be their first time being used in the field but it is predicted that the ships will be a great help to the UNOU.

Fritteran Wildlife:
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/FritteraWildlife1.jpg)

1 Krato Worm:  One of the most common and basic creatures of Frittera is the Krato Worm.  It has numerous eyespots located on the front of its body and a sticky a long tongue that it uses to absorb nutrients from practically anything.  Krato worms are relatively slow moving and mostly found in swampy areas but also appear after recent rainfall.  Their six legs are incapable of holding them up when they're out of the water.  The legs are primarily used for slowly pushing their bodies through the ground and crawling on the bottom of ponds.

2 Litwor:  Litwors are another common site on Frittera and their primary food source is the most common creature, you guessed it, the Krato Worm!  They are also known to eat other small creatures such as insects but mostly stick to an all Krato and Water diet.  Litwors are good farm animals and used for their milk, meat and eggs.  Litwors are one of the only creatures that lay eggs and ALSO nurse their young.  The eggs tend to be relatively soft when laid but when cooked the shell hardens and then cracks itself open, revealing a nicely cooked meal inside.  Only non-fertilized eggs are cooked of course.

3 Talcawb:  One of the many flying mammals of Frittera the Talcawb is nocturnal.  It has three eyes, the third of which is positioned on the other side of it's head, this allows it to see in all directions while not having to turn its head, and turning your head for a Talcawb is impossible.  They fly very fast and hunt other creatures that live in mostly in trees and some that dwell on the ground.  They swoop down and a fraction of a second after coming up from a dive is when they lash out their claw-ended tail and grab their prey.  They are also known to wait in trees for prey to come onto a branch underneath them and then grab them while sitting on an upper branch.

4 Grissack:  One of the greatest predators of Frittera, the Grissack is a best of legend.  Long ago it could make a warrior into a hero if he could slay a Grissack, and even more notable would be wiping out an entire pack, which is debated on wether it can be done by one Syrbor alone.  Grissacks are very fast and live on the edges of forests, in fact thats where the Grissack's name comes from.  Griss is an ancient Syrbor word for forest and Ack is the ancient word for guardian.  They are known to roam around the edges of great forests and hunt creatures both within the forest and those outside of it, in open fields.

P.S.-hey maybe a Torpal should come try to fight an pack of Grissacks, he could be the first alien legend on Frittera  ;D

I love the vehicles. Very sci-fi... but its a sort of cartoony colourful sci-fi.

Title: Exploring

Deep Space Exploration, the New Journey:
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborExplorer.jpg)

The Explorer: This is Syrbor's first Deep Space vessel made solely for exploration.  It holds a crew of 500 including all sorts of scientists along with maintenence crews, engineers, medics, guards/soldiers, and even a few artists.  The Ship is simply called an Explorer but the first ships name that has just recently been sent into space is named the Tenray, named after the leader of the Alliance of Stars who led them to victory in the TriCrusade but died years afterwards.  The Tenray has a docking bay at the front of the ship that holds 2 squadrons of fighters for protection, repair modules, 4 research modules for material floating in space and one landing craft for the exploration of a planet's suface and first contact.  The Tenrayr\ shoud be arriving at it's first destination, a solar system just beyond that of currently explored space, within the next day.

Hey cool!  I tried making them in that but from the front, it looked like a Syrbor that took special classes tho.  Good job.
Title: Bones, Barbarians and Big Fighters
Post by: nuclearchinchila on July 18, 2006, 04:03:08 pm
Yep, first update for the Syrbor in a loooong time.  I've been gone for a week though and before that I was concentrating on the Zrahi so without further ado, here's your update!

(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborMisc.jpg)

1 Skeleton:  There's not much to say here, just look at it!  A picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case bones.

2 Syrbor Warrior:  Long ago before the development of modern warfare technology this was the most common equipment used in battle among the Syrbor.  It was light, easy to carry and easy to make when compared to more advanced weapons or heavier armor.  This light outfit played to the strengths of the Syrbor: agility and speed.  Syrbor aren't known for having physical brute force, at least not commonly, so light armor was a must.  The blades that the Syrbor has on either side of him are Sherks and the shield that it holds with it's middle arm is a Ryty.

3 Living fighter:  After much research and small testing the Syrbor have their first version of an operational "Living Ship."  Living ships are meant to replace actualy Syrbor on the battlefield so as to eliminate casualties and also to increase efficiency in battle.  This is only the first type and is a fighter.  The ships are alive because they contain a brain, a completely organic brain that is generated in a laboratory and through great trial and error has been designed specifically for these ships.  When the brains are implanted into the ships and they're "awoken" they are very sensitive to their surroundings and what information they are given.  The ships are quickly fed information through an electronic interface to their cerebelum that gives them their personality, inteligence and makes them loyal to the Fritteran Republic.  In this way ships can be made leaders of a squadron or followers and can be specialized for hit and run or for large-scale assaults and maneuvers.  It is constructed with slightly maleable metal on it's arms so it may fire in a certain direction without changing it's course.  Of course this is limited, the ship cannot fire behind it or straight to the side without changing it's direction.  A few more tests are to be done in this field before the ships are mass-produced and put into active duty in the Fritteran Fleet.

Ok, what do you think?

are the living ships AI controlled or are they actually biomechanical?

hmm I probably should of expanded on that.  Check back in like 5 minutes and read the explanation again, I'll fix it.

The idea is very cool. I was thinking of doing something like that for my ships, but decided to put it into a stronger 'organic' species instead.

Syrbor Soldier:
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborSoldier.jpg)

This is a Syrbor Soldier wearing standard issue gear for the Alliance of Stars during the latter part of the TriCrusade.  The double-barrel weapon in his right hand is an early form of chardged particle weaponry.  It's still a projectile weapon but the project is a capsule that contains charged particles.  In his middle arm he's holding a Bio-Rod, a grenade-like weapon that explodes, showering anyone nearby in a sticky acidic compound that can eat through the first layer of bare skin and release it's toxin into the victims blood stream.  This armor hasn't been improved much since the end of the TriCrusade other than reinforcing the armor with new materials and upgrading the gun.

Hope you like it, I know it's not colored but I really didn't feel like doing that this time.  Comment please!

Sneak Peak!
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SneakPeak1.jpg)
A new form of Zrahi.
A Syrbor technological advancement.
And a possible new species...


(P.S.- Don't expect the new species to turn into much of anything, as of now it's just a sketch and I'm not completely sure if I want to do anything with them yet.)

Title: HUGE update (It took long enough)
Post by: nuclearchinchila on December 01, 2006, 05:18:49 pm
Micro Quantum Ring
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborMicroRing.jpg)

This new advancement in Quantum Ring technology has furthered the Syrbors' reach in the galaxy.  It is far more compact, powerful and efficient form of the formerly much larger Quantum Ring.  Not only does it allow for much faster travel across the stars but it allows for a ship to travel in any direction.  The ring pivots and angles itself in any direction so a ship can jump to another destination without actually having to change it's direction.  This makes ships much more versatile.


Living Fighter(v2)
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborLiving-Ship.jpg)

This is the latest in the Syrbor's "living ship" project.  This ship contains a cutting edge genetically designed brain.  It allows the ship to properly address any combat situation and even recognize patterns in an enemy's combat style.  They are very fast and agile, but do not contain a quantum ring, limiting their travel distance.  They are very good fighters but carry only 2 accelerated particle guns and within it's wings are shield emitters to protect it.  They can do maneuvers that many other living creatures could not, partially due to the existence of secondary "eyes" located around it's body.  The maleable metal from the former design has been abandoned due to common imperfections in it that made it vulnerable to attacks.


Jump-Fighter
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborJump-Fighter.jpg)

This is fighter is the most recent manned Syrbor fighter.  These ships have old-style quantum rings on it due to them being cheaper to produce and the difficulty in placing a micro quantum ring within such a small fighter.  These ships hold an arsenal of a single triple-barrel rotating accelerated particle gun and two missle bays on either side of the cock-pit.  The pilots of jump-fighters go through rigorous special training to learn how to "Jump-fight."  This is a battle tactic in which Syrbor use quantum jumps to jump around other squadrons, fighters and battle ships.  This greatly confuses the opponent and makes it hard to hit the Syrbor ship.  However, it is quite dangerous for if not done extremely carefully a Jump-fighter pilot could jump right into the side of a ship or into a cross-fire.  The great tactical abilities and fire-power of these manned ships are the only thing keeping the Syrbor in the fighters seat, anymore advancements in living ships and fighters could be completely unmanned.


Battleship
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/SyrborBattleship.jpg)

The new battle ships hold a compliment of 40 new accelerated particle cannons with ball-joints to give them a wide attack radius.  Battleships hold the new micro quantum ring and each hold up to 240 jump-fighters or up to 720 Living fighters.


So everybody tell me what you think!  I dunno when the next Syrbor update will be, I'm going for a Zrahi update next.  I'm not sure yet if I should re-enter the RP threads.

I might attempt to model the battleship in Blender, if that's fine with you.
It's a beautiful design and I want to practice modeling. :)

Sure, go ahead!  It's not a great drawing to make a 3D model off of since some things aren't very symmetrical but it sure would be cool if you modeled it!  (and if you're going for detail, the thin yellow rectangle on the bottom-front is the opening to the hangar and all the little circles on it are the accelerated partical cannons)

That Battleship is cursed.

I have never, ever, had to restart the same model so many times.
A couple of times it was just a few mistakes early on made me restart, which is not unusual.
Then a file corruption or some crap made me restart.
Then my computer froze up, restart yet again.
I was working on it happily and we get a power surge! A POWER SURGE!

AAAAAARGHGHDHFJDSLANFs.

Sorry, Nuclearchinchila, but it looks like I won't be able to finish this. :(
