If so, awesome! ;D I'll be seeing what you'll be doing with these guys! :)

The ivolog home region was a festering bog, fit for an amphibian race. however, over time, their world has become intensely polluted.

their population increases at a ridiculous rate, uninhibited; each member reproduces at a nonstop rate: each lays a clutch of a dozen eggs about every 14 hours, and each egg is hatched and nearly grown within 19 hours. to find a solution, they expanded into space.

then Agnasi took control. by manipulating their senses, he controlled the children, leaving them dumb, dependant, and submissive. He used them to devour the majority of his species. this left him as the most intelligent member of the race, and the only one able to use their technology. he directed the endless throng of his species to spread, leaving the planets they passed charred and toxic.

the Iavolg warriors are equipped in only light, primitive armor, as decreed by Agnasi. hundreds of them can easily be defeated. the problem comes from their rapid reproduction: if even one lives, they can be back to a thriving army in just Weeks. they scavenge their dead soldiers for armor, and if they run out, they go defensless
for the initial assult, the soldiers may need more powerfull weapons in support:

warfare
traditionally, when Iavolg lived in bogs, they just grabbed little prey with their long fingers. this doesn't work against larger enemies, obviously. they are equipped with light armor, with dagger-like protrusions to whack enemies with. they attack en mass, flanking and wearing down the enemy, but with enough reserve to retreat if things get difficult.

to invade a new planet, Agnasi does not deploy large armies, or even arm them; he simply drops off a few machines, crafters (to make for armor and weapons), and a small group of soldiers. they then multiply and gear up. he will typically leave about 100 to start the conquest. if they cant defeat their enemies outright, they use eco-warfare, and starve them. when the resources dry up (and they will quickly, if you consider that reaching a maximum hundred billion population in roughly 9 days will not be sustainable for long),  the Iavolg there will die off as well as their enemies. no use building ships to carry them around when you can just grow a new army on the next planet you find

Kinda like in most RTSs eh?

I like his style. 8)

One question, though: What does Agnasi do when he is planning on attacking a planet with no place to land undetected, like in an ecumenopolis? ???

thats more difficult. in these cases they would land peacfully. and just spread, not waging war, not communicating. just consuming. or reaching a high enough population to overun them.

if the enemy is aggressive, and they are unable to do this, then Agnasi sends in the big guns. so lots of mechs, and any ships that can fight. he takes an area, and deffends it while an army grows. wouldn't take long.

an (explosive, not bio)  WMD would  destroy them. but then he wins anyway, as they tear their own planet apart

this is where Agnasi stores chemicals and pumps pheromones from, on the battlefield:


most dont have the legs. only if they must move swiftly, and cannot spare the time to be caried

it would be far too costly to attempt to place a transmitter into every Iavolg, do these things patrol along amongst the armies, sending commands to the soldiers. if the signal is lost, the Iavolg will revert to primal animal-like activities. not prefferable, as the problem is not solved

to quote an overused phrased, thats only the beginning.

I have plans for all kind of overarmed, specialized mechanicals, and genetically twisted amphibians.
