Here is a typical river tribe village. It has a cental meeting hall type building in the middle. Then family dwellings around it and then on the sides are water wheel mills for griding up rice-like grains which grow in the waters under the city. In later developments they gain walls and so on.

That's awesome, but I like the drawings better than the computer-generated ones.

Here is a picture of Naucean Turnabegga Ball. They throw the root of the turnabegga plant like a football then run around with it trying to get it into a vertical hoop. However they can only toss the turnabegga ball with their tails. It is a very full contact sport and they have huge competions between tribes. This picture however is showing kids of the river tribe playing. You can tell the teams by the color on the bronze tail rings. In this game it is red vs green.

Enjoy!  :D

Holy crap!

Cool stuff, Hydro!
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

Yep the Aztec game with a bit of rugby and lacrosse. Except the tail are the slinger stick things (i forget what the name for them is in lacrosse).

Nauceans may be able to swim but they can only carry so much. Thus ships are still needed. They use these reed cargo ships to transport items they normally could not transport from swimming. Trade routes of the River tribe spread to the swamp tribe, ocean tribe and desert tribe (at the delta). They would travel south to the jungle tribe but they do not have a seaport on the coast.

The ship is self is made of woven reed sails similar to the weave used by Earths Hawaiians. The hull itself is also reeds muchlike Earth's Egyptian reedboats. The back is a typical Naucean Basket house converted into a sleeping quarter. Under the wooden deck is a small amount of room for cargo so most must be strapped down on the deck or kept in the sleeping quarters. he masts and bow are made of strong kelp like stalks that the ocean tribe uses on their homes. Its is prefect for masts in that is strong flexible and water proof.

Here is a Naucean Android from the UFO age. These Androids can do most of the functions a Naucean can do. They can walk, use tentacles and even swim by unfolding their flippers on the back of the foot and using their dolphin-like tails just as a real Naucean would. The difference is they are much stronger, faster and smarter than a Naucean and are used for manual labor, cleaning, helping the young, old and sick, as well as being used in war. However the war-bots are a bit more equipped with war gear than these. Like all robots they must follow Asimov's 3 Laws of Robotics;

   1. A robot may not harm a Naucean being, or, through inaction, allow a Naucean being to come to harm.
   2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by Naucean beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
   3. A robot must protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

As you can see these are the perfect obedient servants for the Nauceans ... or so they think. ;)

You know, you have enough drawings and stories and back ground to actually write a book about this creature.

The android is damn awesome, but do they have robots which arent naucean shaped for doing more specific tasks?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
