How about you explain what the Xynalis Mecanucus actually is beforehand, so people can figure out their interest?

Thanks. For anyone wondering where exactly it is, it's in the middle of page 14.

So, do the recruits have to be Photos or can they be of any species?

The pull... can not resist...

*Gets dragged into thread*

Even though I've long ago left the Spore forums, I can't resist a "School's Out"-esque RP.

So, do the recruits have to be Photos or can they be of any species?

'Aight. So, standard bio for this? Name, species, age, background?

Generally, that's the idea.

Finally, is this going to be concidered "cannon" or can we bend a few rules? (ie. Bringing in a NC race)

Hmm... OK, pardon me while I go dig up one of my old RG creatures.

EDIT:

Name: 5040-22388-8829993-0009F882A-225883BEA. You can call "him" 5040 for short. 7! for even shorter.
Species: H'qur
Age: Adult. "He" really can't get more specific than that.
Totally looks like: What you would get of you took the arms off of 200 Giant Squids, removed the suckers, then stapled them all to a small central sack. Don't forget the copious amounts of slime! Exosuit is a silvery tripod structure. It consists of a 4-foot wide sphere for a central body, with three retractable legs and two retractable manipulators. Has a sort of "liquid metal" vibe to it, very smooth, with no visible seams, even where the legs articulate.
Bio: Seeing as the Hybrid Program almost always initiated a war (Other races don't like having their females impregnated with genetically altered children. Who knew?) the H'qur government decided that from now on, they will attempt other methods of contact. First on the list of suggestions was "doing it the old fashioned way." While it took some intense back and forth translation to understand what precisely was meant by that, it was eventually learned that "the old fashioned way" was composed of taking part in various multicultural activities with other space-faring races. Trade, joining a council, anything, as long as it didn't involve killing or modifying foreigners without their permission. When the H'qur government learned of the Photos' special "academy" of sorts for engineers, they practically jumped at the opprotunity. It was mechanically oriented, their strong side, and it would allow then to gain favor with the race for their assistance. Probability calculations showed that the chances of starting another war were nearly nonexistant, and in fact the possibilities for eventual gain were unbelievably high. Without further debate, 5040 was dispatched to initiate diplomatic relations. "He" has been trained in dealing with the noisy, chaotic beings that inhabit most of the galaxy, and has been supplied with a robotic exosuit. This exosuit is not only (hopefully) compatable with Photos cybernetic technology, but also contains the latest version of the H'qur-to-Galactic Basic translation program. "He" will likely not be seen outside of this tripodal suit, as the ambient noise level in most foreign ships is far too high for him to tolerate.

I think that allowing any species in would require the facilities to be very specialized. But what about sentient gas giant creatures that are hydrogen-filled balloons miles in diameter? I suppose they don't count.

Like Grievi, I like these kinds of RPs. So sure, I guess my character can be a Perrachi who really, really likes multiculturalism. Perhaps it's to improve ties between the Photos and the USSS. By the way, what's the Photos government's name again?

There isn't one, unless you deal directly with the leaders of the species, then you are dealing with the High Council.

So it's just "The Photos?" That's like calling the UN "The Humans." But I guess alien minds work differently, so alright.

TA-DA!

Please look up for my bio.

I'd assume that the cybernetic implants would just be tacked onto the exosuit. Much simpler that way.
