[AC] The Viri Isa
« on: December 31, 2009, 08:48:28 pm »
The Viri Isa





     I see you've come to hear another one of my stories, young one...

     Take a seat at one of those empty canisters there.

     Comfortable? Good. Let's get started, shall we?

     Hmm... Ah, tonight I shall tell you about, the origin of the Viri Isa...

     Oh, where should I start with this fellow?

     Let me see...






     Long, long ago, in a place not so far from here, there lived a bunch of, very strange people.

     They called themselves, the Viri Voltei, "living bodies" in their native tongue. Beings of half flesh, and half machine, they possessed several characteristics which placed them at the border between the living and the nonliving. At one hand, they ate, slept and drank like any regular folk. But on the other hand, their bodies cannot survive long stretches of time without immersing themselves in the electrified oceans of their home planet, Viri Adinei, or "living world".

     The Viri Voltei were very intelligent folk, yes. Coupled with their power to move metallic objects with their tongues, they spread their people all across the oceans, creating a vast empire whose citizens lived amongst each other in peace and harmony. For quite some time...

     Eventually, these people discovered that they could survive away from the oceans for very long periods of time by tapping the large conduits that gave their oceans their electricity. This discovery ushered in an age of expansion, towards the strange new world of dry, non-electrified land.

     All was well for the Viri Voltei, until a terrifying discovery literally shook the very foundations of their world...

     A group of explorers ventured deep into the inland and discovered strange artifacts from what seemed to be a civilization long past. Little by little, the group learned how to use the artifacts. But what they used it for, was, very questionable.

     The group attracted many outcasts into their fold, eventually forming a vast network of people who wanted to oust the current government and place their own rule over the others. And, unfortunately, with their new found technologies, they had exactly what they needed to do so.

     War soon swallowed the entire planet, and the use of the newfound technologies became more and more rampant. As the battles progressed, more and more people were lost and the entire world itself slowly lost it's grip.

     Eventually, the tragedy above all tragedies befell their people...

     An experimental weapon, whose purpose was to produce singularities, was stolen from the government and activated just above the planet by a third, previously unknown faction. The entire planet was consumed, leaving no survivors.

     Save for several groups of people, who chose to escape the conflict and move to other, neighboring stars.

     Independently, these people established their new homes, in peace. Eventually, all of them advanced to a point where they, through one way or another, became singularities, societies that possessed a single, all encompassing consciousness.

     After some time of searching, these new Viri Voltei eventually met up with each other, eventually establishing peace, trade and a unified government. After some time, they finally decided to bury their past altogether, discarding their old names and taking on a new one...

     The "Living Singularities"...

     The "Living Ones"...

     The one we now call the Viri Isa...

The Multiple Singularities







     As you can see from the image that I am projecting to you, the many singularities have only but a single biological origin, the proto-race called the Viri Voltei.

     Now, as the survivors of the great war reestablished civilization on their new home worlds, most of them began to deviate from the original form. Some achieved this transformation via bio-data-engineering, while some stumbled upon their new physiology through the rampant use of cybernetics. Suffice to say, most Viri Isa are vastly alien, both in mind and in appearance, compared to their Viri Adinean ancestors.

     The Viri Isa is composed of five separate singularities, all descendant from the Viri Voltei. They are...

The Viri An Zintra







     The Viri An Zintra, tracing their lineage from the great city of Zintra itself, they are the least biologically deviant of all the Viri Isa. Like their predecessors in Viri Adinei, the An Zintra are known for their vast lands, in this case interstellar territory, and skill in the many arts.

     Just like the Zintra, however, they also possess the least advanced military of all the singularities. This has forced them to pool their resources towards military development while depending on the other singularities for protection in the meantime.

     Now, take a look at what I'm going to give you. It's some data sheets concerning some basic facts about the Viri An Zintra...

Method of Singularity





     The An Zintra obtained their status as singularity after generations of gradual individual integration with their central government via cybernetic implants, eventually resulting in everyone sharing a single pool of data to base their decisions from. It's not as perfect a system as the ones used by the others, but it has served them well for quite some time while still allowing for some minor individual freedoms.

The Viri An Sama







     The Viri An Sama, the one that lies in the other end of the singularity spectrum. This descendant of the Viri Voltei managed to achieve a level of singularity that few would ever dare tread upon.

     Total singularity.

     A singular being, resultant from an amalgamation of millions upon millions of Viri Voltei, capable of things very few others can accomplish, yet at the same time extremely vulnerable to the threat of complete and utter extinction.

Method of Singularity





     The An Sama's components obtained singularity after eons of searching for a new home, jumping from one inhospitable star system to the next.

     Eventually, the lack of a habitable planet forced the people to add on to their generational vessel, little by little, until it became more like a haphazardly-built artificial planet than a traditional spacecraft. The people later decided that by uploading themselves into the ship's system, they can save massive amounts of the craft's energy, allowing them to apply it to other, more vital functions, like searching for a habitable star system.

     As millenia passed, and all their attempts at searching for a habitable planet failed, they eventually grew tired of their mission. Finally, they decided to give up on their previous objective and search for a place to cultivate their vessel instead.

     Upon reaching the rich asteroid belt of Dalano Viri Malikei, which took quite a long time due to their lack of faster-than-light transportation, the vessels occupants reached a general consensus to unite their minds into a single, all encompassing entity, to better manage their civilization and prevent potential unrest that might potentially endanger the vessel.

     Viri An Sama, was born...

Only the Viri An Sama.





The Viri An Aiueo






Pictured: Left: An Aiueo. Right: The combined consciousness. Note that appearance sometimes varies.


     The Viri An Aiueo, one of the more peculiar of the five Viri Isa. As can be seen by reading their name, they identify themselves using the term "Aiueo", a word that couldn't have possibly come out of their own Viri Adineian tongue.

     There is a story as to why this is.

     You see, the predecessors of the An Aiueo, just like that of the other Viri Isa, escaped the destruction of Viri Adinei by boarding generational vessels which set out to find other, habitable worlds. The generational vessel of the An Aiueo were, for most intents, one of the luckier ones, detecting, and reaching, a habitable star system only within a few millennia. That particular system possessed several rocky planets that were all suitable for Viri Adineian life, and like all eager colonists, they made haste in populating them all.

     They did, however, find something very unexpected on one of the planets' surface.

     There was life, and it was sentient.

     They called themselves the "Aiueo".

     For the first few decades, things went quite smoothly between the two, with both races existing in complete harmony, trading knowledge with each other and sharing each others' beliefs.

     Unfortunately, relations started to deteriorate after a group of Viri Voltei became jealous, and fearful, of a certain power which the Aiueo possessed. The power to personally create, and manipulate, life.

     You see, the Aiueo possess an innate ability to manipulate objects in their environment using the energy produced by their sentience. In other words, true psychic ability. What's more, the ability to control their surroundings does not stop in the realm of the inanimate, but stretches right into the world of the living.

     This caused the Viri Voltei separatists to quench their fear using very questionable measures. They intended to cross-breed the Aiueo with their own, using them to exterminate both the Aiueo threat and the Viri Voltei who were, by their definition, cowardly enough to surrender to the "evil Aiueo scum".

     They succeeded, but not before some of their own creations betrayed them and fought for the other side. Soon enough, the war was finally over, with the aggressors eradicated. Unfortunately, the damage was already done, and in an irreversible manner at that.

     The two predecessor races were already completely extinguished.

     After several decades of reconstruction, the peace in the system was finally restored, but not it's original inhabitants, unfortunately. In order to remind themselves of their origins, the hybrids renamed themselves after the two great races from which their lineage began.

     Hence they are called, the Viri An Aiueo.

     Here's some data sheets, young one... You know the drill...

Method of Singularity





     The An Aiueo obtained their status as singularity through a rather peculiar process. Rather than completely combining their minds to produce a single, absolute, conscience, the An Aiueo opted to each contribute a mere portion of their conscience in order to form a gestalt made completely out of mental connections. This entity functions as the An Aiueo's leader and is influenced by the thought processes of each and every person in the entire population.

     The entity, though not in possession of a true physical body, is capable of projecting itself using objects within the environment, or by simply communicating directly into people's minds.

     Additionally, while it may not be harmed in the traditional sense, the disruption of the population's collective focus weakens the gestalt, therefore necessitating the presence of a focal point, a location where all An Aiueo can focus their mind towards in times of weariness or confusion. Thus Lansa An Viri An Aiueo, the seat of the collective conscience.

I'm not sure psychic ability should be allowed in the Alpha Cluster, it's far too strong and powerful, as well as being nearly like god moding.

As long as it's not too powerful, I think it's all right.

Great job on these, Yuu! The Viri An Sama sort reminds me of Krishna's universal form in the Bhagavad Gita, as well as Zonama Sekot from Star Wars. Keep up the great work!

Whee! Thanks for the support, guys! ;D

As for the psychic thing, I was likening them to amateur force users, with the gestalt being some kind of force master equivalent.

Most of the advantage really just matters in close-quarters-combat, though, so I guess it could just be classified as their forte of sorts.





The Viri An Rani Nalanei





     The Viri An Rani Nalanei, one with an origin he'd rather just forget...

     The words "Rani Nalanei" says much about his past, seeing as it means "Many Names" in the Viri Adineian tongue.

     His story began when the generational vessel that carried him and his compatriots sustained massive damage during a collision with a minor asteroid. This alone killed a large slice of the population. The aftermath of the tragedy, however, was far from the chaos that would ensue from what was to come after it.

     Several months after the event, the passengers suddenly began to fell ill, and subsequently die within mere weeks. The craft's biological barriers have been compromised and an unknown pathogens was starting to lay waste to whoever caught a whiff of it. Despite their best efforts, everyone on the colony contracted the mysterious plague.

     For the infected, there lied no vaccine, no cure, no anything...

     The only method left to escape the complete destruction of Viri Adineian civilization was the art of mind-uploading, which the remaining people quickly accepted.

     Soon, rows upon rows of Viri Voltei uploaded themselves into the system, avoiding certain extinction yet at the same time tearing their wholeness apart.

     After recovering from the great disaster that befell them, the now uploaded collective of Viri Voltei decided to rename their kind, as to more easily identify themselves to their current situation.

     Hence they are called, the Viri An Rani Nalanei, the one with many names.

Method of Singularity





     The An Rani Nalanei obtained their status via uploading their entire society into the vessel's central data-frame, and are therefore a part of it. This does not mean, however, that they are without individual wills, as individuality is actually admired, though it does serve a subordinate role to the gestalt.

     They are also not rendered completely immobile due to their nature, as they have the capacity to control their environment through fashioning an assortment of robotic drones, and space vessels, to perform the tasks that they previously performed.

     In a way, they like this method much better.

The Viri An Rani Malikei





   
Pictured: Left: An An Rani Malikei picking up a ball using two of it's many retractable artificial tentacles. Right: The An Rani Malikei's supreme leader. A guard robot is on it's left arm.

Pictures not to scale.


     The Viri An Rani Malikei, perhaps the most well off of the five successor civilizations, they were the very first to escape the conflict in Viri Adinei, launching their vessel into deep space as early as the war in the deeper in-lands began. By the time that the other future Viri Isa reached their respective new homes, the An Rani Malikei were already a flourishing civilization and quickly reaching the point of singularity. And by the time the others finally started preparations for expanding to their systems, the An Rani Malikei had already invented a means for, albeit primitive, FTL.

     The An Rani Malikei is the one that reunited the five successor singularities.

     Unlike the other singularities, which lacked the ability of FTL transit and thus were confined to a single system at a time, the An Rani Malikei were more than capable of doing so, and thus it set out to propagate itself throughout nearby compatible star systems, earning the civilization it's name...

     The "Viri An Rani Malikei", the "Living [Being] of Many Stars".

     Below are several data sheets about this race. Take note that the first sheet merely pertains to the An Rani Malikei "king".

Method of Singularity





     The An Rani Malikei's predecessors, after setting up shop in their new system, installed an extremely complex computer system to act as their leader. This "king" was at first fully electronic, but as people wanted to have a physical manifestation of their leader in order to relate to it, a massive robotic avatar was constructed and plugged into the network.

     Eventually, great leaders and thinkers were uploaded into the system in an attempt to immortalize their intellectual and diplomatic skills. Some regular citizens were somewhat distraught by this, as the uploading of minds might lead to the formation of bias decisions. In response to this, the government allowed two things: The first was the uploading of anyone's mind into the internal hierarchy of the king's mind, turning it into a congress of sorts where decisions can be debated before being declared to the outside world. The second was the integration of the rest of the populace into the king through cybernetic implants, similar to that of the An Zintra, but more so.

     And that is how it has been to this very day.

Finally!





Reunion





     Eons have passed since the Viri Voltei's demise and five successor races have already filled the gap left behind by the original civilization. Things were finally taking a turn for the better, especially for the An Rani Malikei, who were making extensive progress on the many star systems that neighbored Gava Malikei. There was one project, however, which stood well above any mere colonization effort...

     Project Vali Malikei.

     Roughly translated as "Return to Viri Malikei", the project entailed sending a moderately sized fleet composed of soldiers, explorers, diplomats and intellectuals back to the cradle of Viri Voltei civilization itself in order to investigate the true cause of the cataclysm that engulfed the originals' star system, which they detected shortly after reaching Gava Malikei. If everything went according to plan, the fleet would reach the safe zone of the gravitational singularity and conduct investigations from there, and if possible, contact with any survivors.

     Little did the fleet know what await them at their intended destination...

The Crossroads of Viri Malikei





     "The Crossroads of Viri Malikei" is a very short work written by Yuu describing the story behind the formation of the Viri Isa, and the eventual reunification of the five civilizations.

     For those who are interested, the short literary piece can be found here.

Could you describe the Viri An Sama in more detail, or better yet, could you draw a picture of them?  All I can gather is that it is a big sphere so far.  It might also be a good idea to have pictures of the others as well.

Updated with the pictures.

As for the An Rani Nalanei, they don't have any since they're made of software. They're basically their ships.

Maintaining a Single Mind





     Since the advent of interstellar expansion, maintaining homogeneity within the singularities has been quite a hassle for the An Zintra, An Aiueo and An Rani Nalanei. There have been times when a portion of them would be separated from the main group for over a decade. Obviously, this caused some problems, especially in the outer fringes of the civilizations.

     Deciding that this cannot go on for longer, the five singularities convened in the An Aiueo capital of Oi Aiueo to devise a plan for maintaining order within the web of systems. Eventually, they settled on a single plan.

     The five singularities would produce a vast, intricate grid of interstellar trade routes, and the vessels which would run on them. This would make it possible for each and every inhabited star system to send and receive updates from it's respective homeworld in the fastest and most efficient way feasible.

      The plan was approved, and almost a century later, the network was finally complete. Everyone rejoiced as it allowed for exponentially faster loading times, with the farthest colony only being a year and half or so behind.

     Regardless, the singularities were certain that such an arrangement could only hold on for so long. There was only so much they can do to reduce lag until they would need a faster method of transportation.

Warp Generators





     Warp Generators are the Viri Isa's indigenous method of faster-than-light transportation. It was first invented by the An Rani Malikei, but was soon developed separately by the An Zintra.

     The device works by folding space in front of the vessel it is equipped to, therefore shortening the distance required to travel from Point A to Point B. There is, however, a limit to how much space can be distorted by a lone generator, necessitating the use of multiple or larger generators for heavier loads.

     For the most part, trans-stellar travel using this technology is slow and somewhat cumbersome. The speed at which one can jump from system to system can be likened to that of crossing the Atlantic during the Age of Sail. Still, it's currently the fastest method of transportation available to the singularities.

Trade





     Trade between, and within, the singularities are mostly centered on intellectual property, art being the greatest interstellar commodity, with academics coming as a close second and technology as a close third.

     Interstellar trade is usually performed using large vessels equipped with equally powerful warp generators, with the largest vessels almost reaching eight hundred meters in length.

     Purchases arrive, on average, within a few months.

     Intrastellar trade, on the other hand, is mostly done by relatively smaller vessels equipped with small warp generators, or none at all. These crafts usually range in size between a hundred to three hundred meters in length.

     Purchases arrive, on average, within a few days using warp generators, and within a few months using traditional methods.

     As for planetary trade, most of the products are sold via planetary communications networks, owing to their nonphysical nature. The few products which happen to be tangible are shipped through a network of levs, vaccum tubes, or whatever the planet may have for a transportation network.

     Purchases arrive, on average, within a few milliseconds if non-tangible, and within a few hours if tangible.

A Plethora of Singularities





     "A Plethora of Singularities" is the official introductory story of the Viri Isa. It tells the tale of the Crystalion's first encounter with Viri An Sama and the Slorv's first colony vessel's fateful cross with an An Zintra cargo craft.

     For those who are interested, the story can be found here, with it's out of character topic located here.

I've noticed you seem to take some things of their language and terminology from Japanese.  The most obvious (to me) is An Sama, with sama being a very high honorific.  And AIUEO is the vowel order in Japanese.

Also, speaking of An Sama, it looks awesome!  They all do.

I see you're getting on to me! ;D

Indeed, Aiueo does come from the Japanese order of vowels. :)

Though, I have to say that An Sama doesn't actually come from the Japanese language, though that would be equally rad. But it does come from something very close. ;)

Indeed it is kinda misleading.

Though, I will say that it does have a real life meaning behind it, as well as most of the other names in the thread.
