Species: Kratair
Name: Marnix
Sex: Male
Height: 10 ft
Weight: 570 lbs


Marnix awoke with a start.  He could immediatly sence something was wrong.  The sounds of the city had all but dissapeared, leaving nothing but the hum of the lights in the next room.  He checked the clock on the opposite wall.  It was the middle of the day, it was strange for there to be noises outside.  He made his way to the window and confirmed it.  Somehow, for some reason, everyone had dissapeared.

"Perhaps they've all gone inside.  Mabey there's some sort of hazard outside." he reasoned.  Looking down, he suddenly saw movement.  Peering down the 60 floors between him and the ground, he could faintly make it out.  As far as he could tell, it was a Syntyan.  If they were outside with no visible protection then he surely could be.  Just to be safe, he grabed a small plasma firearm he kept hidden in his desk and tucked it away inside his jacket.  He then made his way towards the gravlift to the surface.

She stared at the Alien, they hadn't met many species, and the ones they had done were told to not let their existence become as widely known as other old species. This species was an outsider species, well at least she thought so, she didn't recognise it. Quickly she pressed a button on her belt turning her completely invisible, she quickly got behind a massive pillar lining the entrance to a hive (the large skyscrapers).

Voidsong was getting worried. She should have found her way back to the ship by now, or at least into familiar territory. Looking around, she spotted a large building with pillars in front, and walked in, hoping to find a map of some sort. She glanced around the bottom level, and finding nothing vaguely resembling a map, she sighed and exited. On her way out, she thought she touched something furry, and instantly went into a panic, dropping the containers and dissaperaring from sight with a startled gasp.


((You know, it's rather odd how simmilar Defal and Syntyans are.))

(OOC: how so?)

Layola jumped when the alien brushed against her, she became electrically charged, and scurried off for cover, she certainly liked it inside better. Being invisible wasn't enough to calm her.

Reaching the door of her Hive she head running inside, she didn't know what to do or think.

If it wasn't for Marnix's size and weight, he would have surely been knocked over when Layola ran into him on her way back inside.

She was visible again, she saw the Kratair and started talking extremely fast "Everyones gone, there's Aliens, inside, INSIDE!"

She ran at the door and held her hand out, the doors were built in such a way that they could use their magnetic fields to open and close them, the door flew open and she ran to the grav lift. She looked at the floating numbers unsure were to go Down she though.

((Both are kinda safety freaks, and both are able to become invisible, either naturally or through technology.))

Still invisible, Voidsong stood still and listened for any movement. Whatever she had touched was heading into the building, which she concidered to be a retreat. She opened her large, yellow eye to check if it was gone, and for a moment that was all that could be seen of her. Satisfied that there wasn't anything around, she returned to her natural smoky grey color and began picking up her spilled canisters.

She then heard some noises from inside and hurried her pace, giving up half way as the containers kept spilling out of her arms, and hid behind one of the pillars. Her curiosity got the better of her and she stuck around to hear the talking inside.

The Kratair was standing inside, she could see that it was trying to decide between the inside and the outside. She was only going to wait so long, and she new that, being a herbivore, trying to convince a carnivore was no use.

(OOC: They are Carnivores...right? I can't remember and spore wiki is down)

((Yes, very.))

Marnix sighed and drew his gun.  Better safe than sorry he thought as he moved outside.  In general, unknown sapient lifeforms tended to be non-hostile, though the arrival of these aliens and the disapearance of everyone coinciding seemed a bit odd.  Better safe than sorry, he thought as he peaked out the door, weapon ready at the slightest hint of danger.

Flashing invisible at the sound of approaching footsteps, Voidsong sat on the ground, leaning against the pillar to help her hear what was comming. Her pile of canisters still laid scattered just outside the building.

((Just a note, Defal only become invisible in the "visible" part of the spectrum. Anything else could be used to detect them))

Unable to see anything through the glass doors of the apartment complex, Marnix moved outisde.  Suddenly, the scent of another being hit his nose.  There was definetly someone around.  His eyes scanned the road infront of him.

"Show yourself." he said.

(OOC: Yeah :P Just didn't want to jump to conclusions though, it might be omnivorous though!...ope, seems so)

Before the door closed she very clearly shouted "82nd floor or underground!", she was sure he'd understand. She pressed the 8 and the 2, and off she shot, upwards to her floor. Less than 1 second later she was there. Thoughts were running through her head, but the only conscious one was fairly funny, fairly casual. Why do we trust the gravlifts? Because of the Stasis Field? What if that fails... she tried not to think, she'd just end up getting even more paranoid.

She entered her room and got what she needed. Some holograms and pictures, several small bottles of various chemicals (anti poison etc), several other things...and her PIC (Portable Information Console, it would display information and she could use it communicate with other people, it would also be able to intercept almost any messages, encrypted or not, understanding them was a totally different matter though.)

She got a bigger backpack and put it all in, she also equipped herself with a small shied generator which she could use to protect herself. She wasn't going to take any chances.

Voidsong gasped at Marnix's shout and did her best not to shriek for help. She curled up and pressed as hard as she could against the pillar, placing one foot back in a ready stance to push off in case she was discovered.

Species: Forthi
Name: Gink
Sex: Male
Height: 4 ft
Weight: 135lbs

Slowly the world around Gink came back into focus. His vision was still quite blurry, but he managed to stand up, even through the pounding headache.
Too much alcohol, he thought to himself. After several minutes of spinning himself around, which didn't help the hangover, he found out where he was. The back alley of the Kipenk Royalty, a popular bar downtown. After a few more minutes, Gink decided to take a bite out of the creature that bit him or however that damn saying went. When he got to the main entrance he stumbled in, still woozy and suddenly unsure of whether or not the drink would help at all.

At first he didn't realize that no one was there. When he did, the first thought was that it was sevenday, and the bar was closed. The bartender had probably forgot to lock it up, he being the new guy after all.
Well, it's not my fault he forgot, Gink thought to himself. And with that he took a few bottles of alcohol with him as he walked out the door.
