I was kinda thinking that too.  They seem awfully cliched.  We've had evil races before without them being this ridiculous.

Also:

This means, until someone develops the technology to go between universes, the menace of the Shadow will never be truly squelched out.

What "until"?  The Kratiar have been capable of this for ages.  They don't go to paralel universes because there's no reason to, but they're perfectly capable of it.

They aren't involved with the Shadow, now are they? And how are they cliched?

Stereotypical just-evil-to-be-evil people. That is the cliche.

Due to that armada banter thing, I think they were bullied by more ancient species XD

The Deathbringers'
Deathbringers are special Shadow troopers that have been artificially been integrated into their special armour. Their weapon is unique: it's called a Weapon Node. Based off some unknown tech, rumored to work off the Immaterium (like the Ai'uther [I think that's the name, something like that]), though that's just a rumor. They can be morphed into any weapon by the Deathbringer using it, so long as they know how. Deathbringers are psychic, and this is how they morph the Weapon Node. They also somehow generate ammo for their weapon in question, though this is, again, rumored to be Immaterium-based. Not working alone, the technology they use in the Weapon Node has something to do with it, though the secrets are well-kept, the Weapon Node self-destructing upon the death of the Deathbringer. They are the most elite of the Shadow ground forces, and are more than a match for almost any opponent. Caution is reccomended when engaging at any distance.

What? Ok, really. GET OVER THE BLOODY NAME. WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER THEY BE CALLED? THE BLACK BLOB GUYS? So what if the name of the villans in Babylon V happen to be called the Shadow? It's the same as the generic enemy name "hunter". That name was used in Half-life 2, Halo, Battletech, and so many other series' that I dare not attempt to name them. I know the FREAKIN NAME IS CLICHED!
GET OVER IT!
That was your weekly dose of GroxGlitch-brand overreact. Thank you for your patronage.

There wasn't enough reaction in my overreaction, I demand a refund!  >:(

In all seriousness, I think the cliche name fits the Shadows' seemingly cliched peronality

Don't forget that one. The Left4Dead hunters suck.

You people are all morons.

We need a clichéd evil guy. Some of the coolest wars in this board's history were due to either an overly evil race of space raptors or because of some neo-hitler taking control of a huge alliances.

Thank you, that is all.

The Fear
Class:Worldship
Armament: Too vast to account at one place.
Pictures: 1 is the normal fear, the second is with a different colour scheme, so you can see what it looks like.


Bio: The most powerful ship in the Shadow armada, the Fear, the name appropriate, is a force to be reckoned with. The Fear is meant to be much more powerful than many ships in existance at the moment, and it's armament reflects that. Able to decimate hundreds of ships singlehandedly, the Fear is a mobile terror, striking fear into it's enemies, ere-to-for the name.
