I added more info on the planet and communication and fixed some things so it wouldn't be inconsistent when I do the history.

Update: Removed most of the lines on the pictures except planet picture.

Update 2: Fixed planet

Update 3: Added picture of tree mentioned in text on reproduction.

Yeah, would you believe all I used was MS paint for the star system?  Also I'm work on their development towards tribalism.

Yo yo, got your PM today, here you go:



Sorry if it seems kinda crappy; I'm on a trip right now and have to draw on my laptop, which I'm just not used to. (Also missing my usual drawing programs, boo.) Hope you like it anyway.

Obviously UFO, you haven't snuck into Micheal Bay's house and stolen his version of Citizen Kane. Giant radioactive exploding ninjas are the least silliest parts.

One thing,  the front two arms only have two claws and are claws, not Nauzean hands.
But that is still beastly,  thanks potetoe. 

No I am not complaining, My drawing did make it look like there was three so I understand.

Edit:  I also like this pic because it clearly demonstrates that a Vykusi has 360o vision.

Another awesome picture,  I sense great planet making potential in you MNIDJM.

You probably think I'm nit-picking too much but could you make it a dark orange, the claw feet color but slightly lighter?  Again, my drawing skills make it appear the color you picked.  Of course you did pick up on every other detail,  it took everyone I showed my pic too to figure out it's a side view.

Edit:

No problem at all! Its your picture, it should look how you want it to.

Is this better? I have to admit I'm a little confused on how the claws should look, so feel free to correct me.

Thanks Potetoe, that's exactly how I wanted it to be.

Worship

The Vykusi worship their gods by building these Katus, or mandalas if you will.  They first go to the Special Tree and get four leaves from it.  They then travel to the swampy forests (dark green on planet map) and gather two vines with a sticky sap inside.  They join the two together to make a circle and place the four leaves around it.  Then they make the trip to the ocean to gather sea water.  They dig a small hollow inside the vine circle and fill it with water.  They then go to the mountains and volcanoes to gather ash and dirt.  They then build a cone from this mixture and place it in the middle, where it will suck up the water and fall apart.  They feel this is destroying evil because they view the volcano god Wi as pure evil.  Finally they plant the leave in the wet soil, where they will grow into a new Special Tree.   Each thing represents a god or goddess and their attributes.  The water is Om, the destroyer of evil; the leaves are Ro, who despite being a secondary god gave birth to the universe; the vines are Ko, who holds it all in ;and the mound is Wi, made to be destroyed.  These are made outside of the home and gathering everything usually takes a couple of Earth weeks. Also they go alone and only need to make one in a lifetime,  though more pious Vykusi might make two or three.

I should have an altar for Wi worshipers up by next week.
Any comments?  Questions?  Anything I can tweak? Don't forget to vote, it tells me what I should do next (I had this idea for a while)

Lot of description, for a simple building with leaves. Looking good.

I like the symbolic death of Wi in their Katus, and also the personal pilgrimages involved in making them. It's all very simple and effective.

Do they have like temples and stuff, or do these act as places of worship too?

The Special Tree that grows from their Katu is marked with their name and they go there to worship when they've encountered hard times.  Also they try to get the leaves from the Special Tree they were raised at.
