I'm not seeing what's so awesome.  It's just a planet.
*Facepalm*
Look at the rest of the topic, you fool!

Early History




              A: Lansa An Zintra
               B: Lansa An Di Kila
               C: Hila Ana An Zintra (above) and Kalu Ana An Zintra (below)
               D: Zintra Lansa An No Kalu Ana An Zintra
               E: Failed Expeditions
               F: No Zintra Lansa An Hila Ana An Zintra
              G: Zintra Lansa An Ana An Vira
               H: Padisat An Ligi An Hila
               I: Zintra Lansa An Padisat An Hila Ana An Zintra
               J: To No Kalu Ana An Zintra Territory
               K: First Viri-Voltei-made Power Cord


               Above is a map of the oldest inhabited region of Viri Adinei, Desonei An Viri Voltei, the "Cradle of the Viri Voltei." It is located at the western part of Viri Tubidei, Viri Adinei's one and only large body of water.

               The Viri Voltei spent most of their early history establishing themselves almost solely in this region. The earliest recorded permanent settlement in the region is located just beside the eastern part of the Bulge of Kulni, or known in Viri Voltei language as Magdei An Kulni. It dates back to as far as 5000 VI (Vago Isano) and is by far the home of the oldest known group of Viri voltei to have been recorded to practice agriculture. Zintra (Center), the name of the settlement, wasn't only known for agriculture, however. They were also known for their skill in the arts of Taho (weaving), Vanda (blacksmithing) and large-scale Aho (domestication).

               As the city of Zintra grew, it peacefully absorbed all surrounding settlements which were established not long after it. Eventually, by 4800 VI, Zintra became large enough that it was divided into numerous districts, forming the very first, and oldest, full-fledged Viri Voltei city: Lansa An Zintra (City of Center).

               Unfortunately, as with all large civilizations, someone will eventually become discontent with the government and eventually spark a rebellion. By approximately 4650 VI, a noble by the name of Tubidei An Viri Voltei An Lansa An Zintra An Viri Adinei An Maga Saisei An Viri Malikei An Viri Kalawakinei led several of the absorbed tribes to rebel against the current ruler, Kana An Zintra An Viri Voltei An Lansa An Zintra An Viri Adinei An Maga Saisei An Viri Malikei An Viri Kalawakinei. The uprising was a failure and the offending tribes were exiled into the wilderness. But this wasn't the last that the people of Lansa An Zintra would see of them.

               For several decades, the exiles slowly made their way eastward, pushed aside by the constant expansion of Lansa An Zintra. By approximately 4520 VI, the exiles, now calling themselves Miltei An Zintra (Forgotten of Zintra), began migrating deeper and deeper into Kanho An Di Kila (Valley of Unknown). According to ancient findings, as the Miltei went deeper and deeper into the valley, they wrote accounts of becoming more and more resistant to fatigue. Scientists theorize that this is due to the large concentration of powerlines decorating the sides of the valley, thus causing the surrounding area to have a greater than normal supply of breathable electricity. Regardless of whether this had any considerable effect or not, the Miltei eventually ended up establishing their own city in the deepest parts of the valley, annexing all surrounding tribes, which they have termed "Veivos," or savages.

               By approximately 4400 VI, Lansa An Di Kila (City of the Unknown), has become just as, or even more advanced than the now "Padisat An Zintra," or Zintra Empire. While still not nearly in possession of as large a territory or as many a soldiers as the Zintra Empire, the new city state made up for it with their undoubtedly superior technology, being the first to magnetize their melee weapons and some heavy armor and breed Gupinuda and Solederairu specifically for war, and greater individual prowess, both physically and intellectually. As tensions slowly rose between the two opposing civilizations, it was only a matter of time before war finally broke out between the two of them.

               By approximately 4250 VI, under the command of Pitano Tubidei An Viri Voltei An Padisat An Di Kila An Viri Adinei An Saka Orasei An Viri Malikei An Viri Kalawakinei, the gerakei (soldiers) of Lansa An Di Kila began their attack on the eastern most parts of the Zintra Empire, annexing it and spreading propaganda to it's people. By approximately 4200 VI, thanks to superior technology, strategy and tactics, the Empire of Zintra was no more. It's citizens, now under the rule of Volono Tubidei An Viri Voltei An Lansa An Di Kila An Viri Adinei An Gera Orasei An Viri Malikei An Viri Kalawakinei, are mostly treated as second class, only slightly higher than veivos, which the Di Kila have so far enslaved. The only exceptions of this are the families of some Zintra who married into the vast harems of the Di Kila nobility. The current war may have ended with the fall of the Zintra Empire. However, this was by far not the last war that would shake the very foundations of Viri Voltei civilization.

               By 4120 VI, two cities, Hila Ana An Zintra (Northern Son of Zintra) and Kalu Ana An Zintra (Western Son of Zintra), began establishing themselves on the southern edge of Vanet An Layo (Stretch of Distance) and the central part of Magdei An Kulni, respectively. The cities were composed mostly of Zintra refugees and veivos who escaped the Di Kila, and were both led by descendants of the late king of Zintra. They have not forgotten the atrocities that the Di Kila have committed against their fathers, and so they swore vengeance. But not at that moment, for the Di Kila Empire was, without a doubt, still in it's prime.

               By 3900 VI, the people of Kula Ana, threatened by the ever present western expansion of the Di Kila Empire, began moving westward and westward until they finally reached the western parts of Magdei An Kulni, where they finally settled down once again and eventually named themselves No Kalu Ana An Zintra. Life in Hila Ana, on the other hand, was relatively quite stable compared to their counterparts in the south, seeing little to know signs of Di Kila expansion on their side of civilization.

               Eventually, advancements in technology and the promise of bountiful resources prompted the Di Kila to not just expand along the coastline, but also to other regions of Viri Tubidei. This, however, proved to be too difficult even for their level of technology, as anyone who attempted to cross the vastness of the deep waters, where sources of electricity were almost nonexistent, were never heard from again.

               Ignoring these shortcomings, the Di Kila began a massive expansion operation towards the north. This prompted the Hila Ana to move their people further north to avoid a possible war for territory, which they shall certainly lose. By 3770 VI, the Hila Ana have settled down once again and created a new capital just south of Topei An Migara (Gate of Sheep), No Zintra Lansa An Hila Ana An Zintra (New Capital of the Northern Son of Zintra). By this time, due to the Di Kila's recent craze for expansion, some of the No Kalu Ana nobility decided to yet again migrate farther and farther away from the rest of civilization. By 3610 VI, the pioneers finally settled down near the southern tip of the region, where they met the already established descendants of a crew of Di Kila explorers, mostly veivos, who rebelled against their officers and decided to stay where they were now. They became a great ally to the No Kalu Ana pioneers and, soon after, they began establishing a new civilization together, the Ana An Vira (Sons of Freedom).

               It was 3460 VI by now and the No Kalu Ana An Zintra have all but been annexed by the Di Kila after a sudden declaration of war by Dalano Pantei An Viri Voltei An Padisat An Di Kila An Viri Adinei An Pantei Orasei An Viri Malikei An Viri Kalawakinei. To combat the Di Kila threat, the now Padisat An Hila Ana moved their capital some distance north of Topei An Migara, a natural chokepoint formed by the lack of sufficient electrical sources, and began construction on a massive defensive formation that would be known to all present viri voltei as Padisat An Ligi An Hila (Imperial Wall of the North). By 3410 VI, the wall was complete and proved to be a successful line of defense after the first and second failed attempts of breaching it by the Di Kila, which happened between 3965 and 3963 VI.

               Soon after their two consecutive defeats at Padisat An Ligi An Hila, the Di Kila shifted their attention towards the more vulnerable Ana An Vira, which not long ago began their great migration to the west, in search of a place where their expansion will not be hindered by the Padisat An Di Kila.

               By 3610 VI, the relationship between the three empires have more or less reached a point of stability. There have been no major wars since the Di Kila's third, and yet again, failed attempt at breaching Padisat An Ligi An Hila in 3829 VI. What worried the Di Kila at this time was not the notion of their two enemies invading them, but the notion of something far more devastating to their glorious empire: Overpopulation.

               As population increased, the lower-class, and some of the middle-class were slowly pushed into the very fringes of breathable land, thus causing numerous cases of zintra and veivos dying of electro-starvation. All of this changed, however, when a certain viri voltei, whose name has been lost in history, developed the very first Viri Voltei-made power cord in 3780 VI. It was at this date that the Early Ages officially ended, and the Middle Ages officially began.

Rusting


               When Viri Adineian cells, known as Voltz, don't repair their membranes regulary, they undergo a process known to humans as "rusting." When this is not remedied immediately, the rust will eventually take over the entire voltz, reducing it to a pile of oxidized raw materials.

               Older lifeforms tend to have a more difficult time repairing their skin, which eventually reaches a point where old creatures, including Viri Voltei, literally "rust to death." Thus when a Viri Voltei dies, it is not uncommon for it to undergo a process to prevent it from rusting very quickly, the Viri Voltei version of embalming and mummification.

               This is also the source of the Viri Adineian saying: "From rust... To rust..."

               Luckily, however, as technology progressed, the Viri Voltei finally found a way to counteract the rusting process via the use of nanotechnology, thus rendering their lifespan indefinite.

What a coincidence.

>_>

<_<

No really, I formulated this quite a long time ago, but just decided to post it right now after finding it in my folder.

>_>

<_<







Language


               Viri Voltei language is constructed on the principle that surrounds the nature of electricity. You see, Viri Voltae communicate using small rapid bursts of electricity that they release from their manipulators. The rate of electric flow from each of these bursts produce meanings, similar to how the tonal languages of Terra function. The language generally functions like Morse code, however it involves electricity, rather than sound or radio waves.

               It is good to remember, however, that just because Viri Voltei communicate via this method does not mean that they are deaf. It is just that they have quite the difficulty hearing verbally spoken words.

               For your convenience, below is a rather crude representation of the Viri Voltei language translated to the Latin alphabet.

Y + i

Y + u

Y + e

Y + o

               Where:

     A = Vowel Equivalents

B = Hard Consonant Equivalents

C = Soft Consonant Equivalents
     Y = Extremely High Rate

a = Very High Rate

i  = High Rate

u = Moderate Rate

e = Low Rate

o = Very Low Rate


               So, "Viri Voltei" would be transliterated as "uo-Yi-ooo-Yi uo-Yo-oi-ue-Ye-Yi" and "Hello World" as "oa-Ye-oi-oi-Yo oo-Yo-ooo-oi-au".








Storing Literature


               Analyzing their environment, one would to come to the conclusion that it is extremely difficult to record Viri Voltei language using written form. Which is true.

               Thus, the Viri Voltei do not have, in their possession, an alphabet, or any written form of language, for that matter.

               "Watcha talkin' 'bout Yuu?", some may ask. Well, to put it simply, they don't have to do so in the first place. Using their eidetic memory, Viri Voltei can store and catalog large volumes of data inside their noggins. There was actually a profession which basically acts as libraries for many towns and villages.

               However, time passed and someone finally realized the value of unbiased information. Using his common sense, which was rather hard to find back then, the dude realized that using multiple people and cross-matching their memories just didn't cut it when it comes to ensuring zero bias when storing records. As he was an inventor, he took it upon himself to discover a way to store literature accurately.

               After an undisclosed time, the guy discovered that you can store data by precisely applying magnetism on the brains of other living things, with Viri Adinei's plant analogues, being capable of storing data more stably than it's animal analogues. Eventually, he perfected the art and introduced it to the masses.

               Unfortunately, the guys who just lost their jobs to his invention weren't so happy about how things were going. But, eh, who cares? At least the people now have the equivalent of the Gutenberg Press, which did A LOT to improve the quality of education of the general populace.

As promised...

Sorry if it's a bit late.

Hope you like it.







Simulationism


               The Viri Voltei believe in a system called Simulationism. They believe that existence is made up of multiple levels of simulations, and that their universe is sandwiched somewhere in between.

               Try and visualize an infinitely regressing matryoshka doll. That's basically it.

               Anyways, the Viri Voltei believe that sentience is a bridge that can be used as a medium to connect two adjacent universes together. They believe that their current life is only a dream, with their true forms located somewhere in the universe that simulates the one they're currently experiencing. Actually, they think that this can happen multiple times, allowing someone to live a life within a simulation within a simulation within a simulation within a simulation, and so on.

               There is also a Viri Voltei belief that if one were to discover the reality of the universe that simulates the current one, one would be able to manipulate it, to an extent. To put it bluntly, Viri Voltei think it's all just a big, all encompassing dream. And that when you start to enter a lucid state, you gain psychic powers.

               In the Alpha Cluster timeline, the Viri Voltei that encountered, and reverse engineered, the Aiueo believe that this is how they got their psychic powers.

               As for death, the Viri Voltei view it as a time when a person will finally wake up from the current simulation they are dwelling in. It is, however, still a matter of debate as to the ultimate fate of those who have experienced this "waking up" phase.

That's a pretty ridiculous-sounding belief, but at least it's not as crazy as some other wacko religions. To tell the truth, I was hoping that they had seen the Holy Truth of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Ah well, looks like they'll remain untouched by his Noodly Appendage.

Hey, at least they're closer to the truth, what with the AC and everything else in the forums merely existing inside one of SMF's many servers. ;)
