[noncannon] The Grox! AAAAH! OOC
« on: February 04, 2010, 01:36:12 pm »
Ok, this is an idea I had about a (noncannon!) story about our creaures fighting the evil Grox. I know they don't exist in the RP section, that's why I made it noncannon. I figured that given the information given on the Grox, or more accurately, the lack thereof, we could come up with our own information for them as we go along. So, whaddaya guys think?

First of all, we have enough races that we really don't need to resort to using the Grox as an enemy.  Secondly, they're pushovers.  You're comparing a race held within the limitations of Spore to those that we have made without such limits.  What's the worst the grox can do?  Send a few ships to harrass a planet?  A single Kratairian fleet could wreak havok accross their territory, and if this RP occured, I'm sure that they would not be alone.  It's like pitting the combined armies of the modern world against a beehive.  Sure the bees may have numbers, but that's not going to change the fact that they are going to get obliterated.

I guess that the fact that THOSE THAT PARTISIPATE EXPAND THEM to fit the purpose got lost in translation. I meant to take that crappy little nuicance of "The Grox Empire" and make it fit as an enemy for the races submitted by said partisipants. Oh, and it's a beehive with lazars and span-galatic travel. Comparing the Grox to earthly modern armies is stupid, even by a race withheld by Spore's limitations.  It would be similar to the invasion in Independance Day, except with no sucker blowing a nuke via self-sacrifice. /nitpick

What?  No, I wasn't comparing the Grox to modern armies, I was making an analogy.  I'm saying that pretty much all the Grox have going for them is numbers, and technologically and militarily they are far inferior compared to the force they will encounter.

And if you're going to be changing them around and whatnot in order to make them work for the RP universe, then why make it the Grox at all?

Because I like the Grox themselves, look. If you don't want to participate, then why whine about it? It's non cannon. It's just for fun. Loosen up, jeez. It doesn't have to make sense. It's not like it effects you in any way,shape, or form. I personally think it would be fun to reinvent the Grox.

Alright then.  I suppose I was a bit hard on you, especially give that it is non-cannon.  After all, I was involved in the "School's Out alien sexy time", so I can't really talk.

Don't ask.  It was a number of years ago now.  One of the strangest RPs to grace the forum.

[sarcasm]I don't know if "grace" would be the proper term.. :P [/sarcasm]

Anyway, I'll Start it. I'll use this as an OOC thread, just to keep the main thread clear from non-RP statements. BTW, martyk, do you want to join, or were you just commenting?

Awesome idea. :)

I'll look into this for now, before deciding.


...?

Imagine Tali and Shephard from Mass Effect 2, except they're both students, and that Quarians reproduce using aerosols.

It was... strange.

I had a small part to do with it in the second one, but ot my defense, I was unconcious.

Come on, people! We get a chance to do what EA and Maxis could not: make the Grox a foe worth fighting. And you don't want a part in that? Plus, since I don't actually have Spore, this is the closest I'll get to playing it. So please, at least do me this favor. Consider it.
