Spuds back!

Soooooooo, the Aii'teee....Aii'thea....(damn I can't remember how to spell it now!) are back!  :o

On that note... I don't really see why you needed to make a total reboot...

Speaking of reboots, are they any different from what they where before?

Depends on what you remember :D
They're basically roiling clouds of condensed psychic emissions, now (by the way, just because information is being provided, doesn't necessarily mean they are around right now.... but they're coming... they're coming...). Don't worry, I'll be sure to change a few things from the originals. Anyone have any preference on what i should add next?


I've been away from the forums for a while now. What did i miss?

Well we had the Core Combine first contact war. Only one battle actually took place but it is genrally regarded as pretty damn bloody with some high casualties on both sides.

But the REAL issue going on currently are the tensions between the GPA (Galatic Protection Agency) and the PSR (Perrachi Socialist Republic) which could erupt into a cold war (or full blown war for all we know)

but away from that there is also the forming of the Coalition, which will be a military alliance between the Core Combine, the Riether, and the Ivalog

How do you see psychic energy? Rule of Cool.

The PSR is trying to invade the Slakos and Makal on the basis that their societies are unequal, undemocratic, and just plain bad. But now some guys are trying to stop them, which is really boiling them up.

These guys seem to be made of Awesome. I'll follow this thread.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Psychic energy may influence the brain of the observer, creating a mental "illusion" of the life form.
On that note... I don't really see why you needed to make a total reboot...
I completely redid the Riether, for example. They were an absolute disastrous mess. There's some points where you just completely bork a race beyond help, and it can only really be good to totally reboot it.
Soooooooo, the Aii'teee....Aii'thea....(damn I can't remember how to spell it now!)
Is it Aii'eathyr?
Goddamnit kitkat, you make me look late

Exactly that Kitkat.
Perhaps the arrival of these guys could further disrupt things. Something like that seems like a cool idea, if its not too late to participate...

Coming next: History or Biology? (Can't remember how to add a poll :-[)
By the way, would you rather information posted in the original post, or as replies? I've heard some people prefer one or the other...

Who else wants one of the Talsenreave's engines to have a malfunction which inadvertently alerts the Aii'ethyr of our presence?

________________________1|Appearance

(Section 1 -- Appearance)
Regarding the _____s form, physically, there is little to analyse. However, in order to explain the paradox, the mind attempts to force the stimulus received from its senses into something which they can understand. The mind has great difficulty interpreting images it cannot classify. The closest approximation to the image they perceive is a liquid-dark, luminescent cloud etc...
The results of such an encounter can be - (OOC: Any imaginative symptoms from prolonged exposure to these entities?)
The _____ is not a material being, but an entity composed of, theoretically, the combined psychic miasma of congealed reality itself sustained by the floating orbs within(See below). However, whilst lacking a true, tangible physical form, the _____ is the lotus of immense energies and is able to manipulate these energies to achieve significant discharges and kinetic impacts, and are able to achieve physical effects, as if corporeal.

The fact that it can be "killed" is attributed to the disruption of the focal points and lattice arrays which the entity uses to achieve material affects.

(Section 2 -- Description)
Physically, it is difficult to identify a _____'s discernible, material form.
However, in thoughts and feelings they acquire shapes and attributes, and these things bind their form and mould their minds into things that materialistic creatures might struggle to comprehend, but can at least identify.

They are composed of three main (comprehendible) fragments: The inner spheres, the manifested psychic emissions, and the light-limb constructs.

Usually there are three inner spheres - black orbs that shift and swim across diaphanous threads of star-light. They drift in inconceivably complex patterns with a slow, liquid grace. Each one bore shining cracks that flared and twinkled as though they were tiny, refractive windows into the Void itself.
Surrounding them is their manifested psychic emissions; a turbid aura of swirling eddies which shimmered and liquefied as though a thick curtain of watery brightness were being drawn across reality. The rippling maelstrom possessed a sort of momentum; it pulsed and oscillated with waves of energy, scattering droplets of dark-light and glittering with unspeakable power. Thick wisps, mere suggestions of cirrus formations, gradually drew themselves out into strips and whirling suggestions of eddies, slowly condensing within reality as the little swirls congealed and merged. Spinning columns glistened from within with barely-harnessed energies crackled with burning lances of energy. Sparks of light from luminescent veins that ran through the mysterious substance caught the unearthly ripples like bursts of star-light.

From within this unearthly haze, the _____ can manipulate and control the psychic emissions to create light-limb constructs. The various forms light-limb constructs manifest is not necessarily - they can form a plethora of nightmarish appendages such as tentacles, hooks, talons, blades, teeth and other enigmatic abilities. Like incandescent tendrils, they appear as thick appendages that extend forth from the shimmering maelstrom, questing into the thick soup of reality.

(Section 3 -- Physical attributes and abilities)
Eyesight: The _____ do not perceive the reality as others do.
The _____ operate entirely on feelings, emotions, and psychic presence.  To discern information on a physical plane of being, the _____ hone in on certain emotions and psychics. Free from physical limitations on psyche - seeing, hearing, touching - the _____ are immensely more aware in a psychic sense.

They’re attracted to the psychic presence and warmth of any a member of the 'Leader' Strain; this 'warmth' is similar to a kind of comforting “light” that draws them near and inspires emotions of belonging, love, admiration. There would be a natural instinct to protect that at all costs as well, and respond to that “light’s” reaction to events around it. A 'Leader' would direct emotions and psychic responses towards physical things, and so the _____ know how to respond, where to move, etc. in very distinct detail based on their ability to “feel” their leader and their fellows.
