The Nubs
« on: September 15, 2007, 06:02:52 pm »
The Nubs  
Nubs, are highly social Sentient Beings that live in groups and do individual tasks, for the good of the tribe/family.  They have 4 nubs on their body, which make up their arms/hands, and legs/feet.  Their 'nubs' act as a form of tentacle, with good grip.  They can flatten the ends of their nubs to make swiming/picking up objects easier.  They have soft skin on sides of their heads, which enable them to hear and smell.  Their mouths are usually closed at all times, but resemble human mouths in many ways.  They walk like a pirate would if both of his legs were pegs.  They communicate in high pitched, drawn out noises that sound weird.

Very awesome. Though they are humanoid, they are well thought-out. I'll leave you to be mauled by Hydro now.
I say NO! to all limits.
Unfortunately, I don't think we're far enough into the Civ stage to have deveoped into the 'Infinite-ghz processing' research tree yet...

Their simple outlook is enough to hide that. Even so, tolerance for humanoids has cooled off a very long while ago.
