~This map shows the distribution of cities throughout Capital.  The yellow city is their Capital, Acropolis.  The blue cities are the distribution of Industrialized, major cities of commerce, activity, and trade.  Red cities are where drilling, mining, and augmenting of metals occur.  Purple cities are places of drilling, but also of major scientific research and technological investments.  Green cities are major places of agriculture, hunting, or ranching.  Orange cities are small towns of a multitude of purposes.

~This map shows the distribution of resources and activity throughout Capital.  The various main, but not necessarily sole, purposes of the land and people.

---



~This map details the odd timezones the Epoc standardized.  Each timezone is spaced approximately 1000 miles apart, and the equivalent of a difference of 2 Earth Hours.  Zones are seperated by the Median Line, which runs through the point where the annual storm occurs.  The Epoc do not judge time as humans do, rather the distance in time they are from the Median (The Date Line is between +5 and -5). Their system runs on the standard amount of daylight and nightime (which occurs for "5" Capital Hours or "10" Earth Hours), Labeled to the equivalent of how many of day or night they have so far been in (Night +1, Night +2, Night +3.5... etc).

I wish I had Photoshop. :)
But since I don't have one, I'm currently using M$ Powerpoint for all of my pics. :)

When I find some time, I'm gonna try and practice Bryce5.5. ;)

Yay, I look forward to seeing more from the Epocs.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Nice, I voted technology because I wonder what kind of things creatures with physique like this would devise (remember that all technology is mostly designed keeping its user in mind, in limitations and abilities, etc)

Transportation would be nice.

Working on a better visualization right now.

Personality

Epocs have a very diverse, very unique personality.  However, for the most part, Epocs can be easily described.  The Epoc are a greedy, self centered, and manipulative race that has no intent on slowing for anyone.  They love their wealth, and use it to display their elaborate desires and fantasies.  They use their skills to their advantage, exploiting every other race they encounter for resources and financial gain.

Besides being economically minded, Epocs are extremely fierce, and even violent at points.  While they are generally peaceful with other Epocs, they hold nothing back against other races.  They will betray trust, mindlessly slaughter, and use their brute force to annihilate anyone who opposes them.  Remember, they are only concerned about commercial gain.  However, many Devout Epocs are pacifistic, not willing to harm others.  This is not looked down upon, but rather respected as an overcoming of natural processes.

There are two concepts that disgust the Epoc more than anything else.  Any race that enslaves another race to do their own work is viewed as revolting, lazy, and the scum of the galaxy.  The only exception to slavery is the use of Androids to carry out work.  However, the cardinal sin of the Epoc society is theft.  Thieves and crooks are viewed as the worst of society, taking away the wealth of others, and it is not uncommon for thieves to be executed or imprisoned (which are then lynched by the inmates).  Murder, ironically, becomes the least of the Epoc worries.  If an Epoc can prove good reason for killing someone, whether it be them stealing from you, wronging you, inflicted pain on you, causing you grief, adulterous spouses, or just generally worsening your life, then Epocs are handed a small fine, or rarely slight imprisonment.  1 out of 5 Epocs will commit murder atleast once in their life.
