I can see some problems with that though.  Isn't there like a standard galactic language used in our Spore RP galaxy so that everyone can understand eachother?  And as a human from another galaxy, he would never have learned it.

Sorry, no humans. And don't worry, everyone who posted will get to be in. That includes you, Detox, just edit your post to something better and I will bring you in later, ok?

Now, the game begins!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ethos... The latest glittering jewel in the galactic crown, ready to be polished and set into the ever-growing map. Several Loricatii ships drop out of wormholes near a large, spheroid station blinking blue dots in the blackness of the void. They light up the shadows, and then hover momentarily, each readying and discharging their cargo. All the assembled respondents to their call are loaded gruffly into shuttles that slip from the craft and head towards the station. It is not an unhappy goodbye, as the Loricatii are not known for their hospitality. The mercenaries are treated with the bare minimum of respect and nothing more, and their access to the water-logged ships is limited. An uncomfortable trip, to say the least...

Through the gulf of space, the shuttlecraft approach the station slowly, and on arrival, bursts of misted water spray from the docking ports, crystallizing as they do and bouncing off of the crystal panes. The seal then forms, and the inside of the shuttle slides out of the main body, taking the occupants (That'd be each of you) from it and into the main station. Inside, vast amounts of water-logged rooms and airlocks are visible through the transparent walls of the transport tubes. Massive beasts swim along, some curiously examining the inhabitants of said tubes. As the group moves towards a single point, the tubes merge, as do the pods and the group assembles.

Massive beasts, larger than even the Forthii in the group, each gargantuan in proportion, swim past and examining the group with deep, black eyes. Soft, deep, morose songs echo through the water, humming through the tube. Some of these creatures occasionally come together, placing gargantuan hands against each other to stop each others motions in the water. They then sing their deep songs and pass to each other some sort of data module or note, and then swim away once more. These are the Loricatii in their natural environment. On land, they are slow, trudging walls of living armored flesh, but in the water, they are graceful and acrobatic with an almost supernatural elan. Even their clothes, long flowing robes of dark brown and red, seem to eerily flow like the water in which they reside.

Slowly, the area becomes darker as the shuttle nears its destination, disappearing into another compartment where there is no water. Only dim light illuminates it from behind, casting shadows everywhere, as some minor illumination is provided by a light from within a pool of water in the middle of the room. A hiss escapes as the pods open, and the group is allowed to slip these bonds and talk amongst one another in the dark room, humid air rushing forth to replace the cooler, dryer air of the pods. Muggy, almost stale air is all that can be smelled in the empty room, devoid of all features except for the large pool of salty water just ahead.

((Alright everyone, you are free to talk amongst yourselves, meet and greet... And let the games... BEGIN!))

Aleger was not a happy camper.  Stuck now for a number of days, traveling with the vermin that are his hosts and the other mercs.  It was disgusting, as was the accomodations themselves.  He just couldn't wait to get away from them all and get out on the planet's surface.

Carl woke up for the first time in many years.  He turned his rust-encrusted sensors around, observing his surroundings.
First Priority:  Define main mission.

His wheels squeaking horribly, he drove up to Alegar, and said in a scratchy voice, "Define Primary Command!"

Aleger turned and looked at the old droid.  Judging by the speech paterns of the robot, it was apparent he was of the kind that required clearly defined commands.  Aleger had heard all sorts of stories of vaguley given orders resulting in the death of the user.  Aleger however, was smarter than that.

"State designation and primary function, then await furthur instructions." he said to the robot.

"Variable Primary function equals Reconaissance, exploration, and security."

Carl wheeled away and went into temporary hibernation.

Aleger walked off after the droid, he would not let a potential useful tool get away from him that easily.

Catching up with it, he gave it a new order.  "State serial number designation.  Once complete, follow me unless told to do otherwise.  You will only respond to orders from me."

Ide'ge watched as Aleger and the old rust-bucket of an automaton conversed, only mildly concerned about the exchange. Everything had an "off" switch somewhere, it was just a matter of finding it. He appeared to be the only one in the group that was enjoying the dampness, exept maybe the Forthi... Ide'ge was having a hard time reading his expressions.

He was amazed by this place, and could hear for miles through the dense sea water. The echoing calls helped quite a bit too, however he dreaded ever talking to one of the gargantuan noisemakers. Putting it out of his mind, he crawled over to Valen.

Answering the Quasit's second question, he replied, "If there is any life down there, I'd like to be the first to study it. You never know what sort of oddities you could find down there. What about you?"

"Variable Serial number is equal to KJJRB-313.  K'jal'jal recon bot.  Singular order defining is already occocupied by an unknown party."

Tipp was annoyed. His brand new holocomp had been screwed up a bit for some unknown reason. He would really need that for the exploration too.
After fiddling with the holocomp he finally threw it down on the floor in disgust. He looked around the room. Not too much was going on. Nobody was really conversing. They all probably had their own wants with this planet.
Tipp eyed the pool in the center of the room. It looked quite inviting and after thinking about it, he decided to take a quick dip. While it might have seemed strange to other creatures it was perfectly normal for a Forthi to go for a swim if not much else was going on.
He jumped into the pool. Perfect temperature.
