.- Nihili -.
« on: October 25, 2007, 05:02:11 pm »
I made a creature!!

They are called the Nihili. I just started so i havent really done too much. Might come by and update when i've got enough time, or if you really want me to. Remember, it's a work in progress.. hence the small amount of info.
Let's kick off with the history of them, shall we?

History:

The Nihili are an ancient race which has been observing all the other creatures and sentinent lifeforms in the universe.
They are very intelligent, and have found the ways of war unneccessary. They are a peaceful race who love to communicate with other creatures/lifeforms.


Planet

They live on a planet called Velea. The planet looks like this.


You may have noticed two things, light-blue orbs which are scattered around the planet. These are Orb Sanctuaries. These are the homes of the Nihili, (you may call them cities.) in which they live and do their daily chores (science and understanding of the universe, or trade on the local market.).
The other you might have noticed are the purple-ish things. These are Crystal dunes. They produce what the Nihili call Vertiala, or just Power. The crystals are grown to the ground and needs quite some force to be pulled up. But this is not neccessary. The Nihili have found a way to draw power from the crystals without harming them.

Classes
The Nihili live in a class-society, every Nihili is given a rank out from her/his' achievements to society.

Here is one very high ranking Nihili, the Keeper.


The keeper is dressed in a dark cloth garb. It may not give too much protection but it is not needed, since the Nihili can easily create a protective sphere around him/herself. The Keeper's job is to protect the Leader of the Nihili(which i am yet to find a good name to.).
Keepers have one primary attack, it is rarely used, as there is no need for war in Velea.
The attack is created by the Keeper focusing hard enough to create a lethal bolt of lightning.

Factions

The Nihili are not one race, but many. There are different races around the planet and this here is one example.

The Hiraka.



This picture illustrates two Hiraka kids. They stand about half a meter high. The Hiraka(meaning Cold) hail from the northern parts of Velea, a place called Hiraka Irashi (meaning Cold Country), you might have thought from the looks of the planet that Velea is completely arid desert terrain. Well, think again! even though there is no snow in Hiraka Irashi, it's extremely cold. So cold infact that the Crystals almost cannot be harvested!
Hirakan people live in mountains, or on the icy fields where they dig holes in the ground. There isn't very much usable on the surface of Hiraka Irashi, and the Nihili or Hirakans don't remember how the earliest Hirakans managed to dig their ways into the stone hard mountains.

Welcome to the deepest, darkest, most mysterious part of the FOrum. Few dare to come here, and the ones who do, RARELY leave to tell the tale.

Awesom Planet Veraal! :o It really captures the image of worlds in spore. Did you use Photoshop for that?

Keep up the good work. ;D ;) :)

Would the Nihili like to be allies with my creatures? (I'm gonna post them here, some time later.)

Of course they'll want to be friends with you. They want to be friends with everyone!  ;)

Very cool and great pictures. Will you be RPing?

On a completely different note: their name is nearly the same as the royal line of the Yunimius: Nihiili.

Ach, completely forgot about this.

Thanks fer the nice replies.

-One thing though, why did you call your creatures 'Nothing' ? (Nihil (latin)= Nothing)
It is not that i do not like it, i am just wondering :P

Well, first i thought the creature would be cool if it didn't have any feelings or emotion or something. but as they are so peaceful, i think they actually do have feelings, ethics and morals.

Plus, it just sounds cool. ;D


Also, i don't know what to do next on my creatures, what would you like to know/see more about?
I could make a poll, if you'd give me some suggestions.

Thanks.

I'm always for more about biology and unique culture but if you need more ideas check out that list Hug and Hydro made once of such things or look at other creatures (like my Urshans) for examples and inspiration, that should do the work.

I voted for energy. Good luck with the Nihili. ;)
Once they have at least half of their biography done, it'd be great to join the Comwar RP. :)
That'd be great. ;) Though I really hope Taven gets back; however I am also kinda busy right now so I guess it's fine if I don't RP for a while. :)

PS: Love how they look, simple yet mysterious. ;)

Tiny Update.

The Nihili are not one race, but many. There are different races around the planet and this here is one example.

The Hiraka.

The Hiraka(meaning Cold) hail from the northern parts of Velea, a place called Hiraka Irashi (meaning Cold Country), you might have thought from the looks of the planet that Velea is completely arid desert terrain.

Have no fear, more info on this section will come in time.
