Racial memory (In a way. Remnants of past Photo-Chemical communions can be picked up from specific locations.)
Radioactive sensing
Radio hearing
Regeneration (They have few vital organs so growing most of their body is a simple as us growing our hair)

Ok, good.  I'm not the only one who thought that.

Also, quit using scientific notation for your numbers.  7.0E1?  Seriously?

But apart from that, very nice.

No we didn't. Kosmosis is an "Ultimate" counterpart to the Gamingsteve verse, running simultaneously  with GS. It isn't even done yet.ent so far to say that Kosmosi wan'ta replacement for GS in teh first postand this was further reiterated on page 5. I'll post the K-Nymeidians after I've established a steady RP base with  Nymeidians Classic.

I think you're a bit confused, Lush. For one, Kosmosis has completely different organisms than that of the GS board, so it isn't an "ultimate" counterpart.

And the title of Gec's thread is "Moving On", so I assumed this board would be left to die. I suppose it would be nice if people still wanted to RP with their old organisms, though.

What are you planning for Kosmosis, then?

Did you not read the thread or the board itself? A sigfcat fraction of the Faunba Index are imprts from the GS universe. If it was just a "Compleyu New" Galxy it would just be another Nova Cluster or Alpha Cluster. The whole point of reboot is so you don't replace the original version but merely crystallize it. How did you miss that?

Well of course a few people recycled them. But the vast majority were ones that only had one or two posts, and were never used in RPing. The only notable one that was used would be the Photos, but since almost all of their updates were military-based, it doesn't really matter.

And the point was for a clean start, not a rehash. Its supposed to be a clean break with both the older RPing, and the GS boards as a whole. No offense, but I do believe that you are the one who is "missing the point".

But back to the matter at hand, I'm going to need a tie breaker vote here, I need to get a stable base of backstory before it's time for them to come in the RP.

I read through it quite thoroughly, and apparently so did you. I think the real question is, did you understand it?

True, it's not a replacement, but a new galaxy altogether. There is to be no connection between these two galaxies, however much you would like it to be so. It doesn't matter the similarities between the two, because there won't be any comparisons. Kosmosis is not an 'Ultimate' as you keep referring to it. There really isn't any point to post your creatures here, since you won't be RPing with them. There is no one else here to RP with you, and even if you happen to stumble across someone, it wouldn't have a real effect on the events of the GS galaxy. The GS galaxy is meant to be closed and remembered. That is the point of moving on.

Luck You, you guys get a three way tie.



FLRX and NLSS

 FLRX
Name: FLRX
Adjective: FLRX
Sun: IOUY
Sun Type: Class G Yellow Main Sequence

Size: 160% of Earth
Gravity: 1.0126g
Order From Sun: Sixth planet
Distance From Sun: 1.06 AU
Moons: One moon, NLSS
Rings: No
Average Temperature: −89.2 °C to 57.8 °C
Atmosphere: Nitrogen-oxygen with large quantities of Ruthenium
Atmosphere Density: Average
Liquid: H2O/NaCl solution
Land-Liquid Percentage: 66% land, 33% water
Average Terrain: Varies greatly, much like Earth

Main Species:     Nymeidians (native)
Native Animals: Fungoids, Placeans and Vyghers are the three most populous varieties of animal life on FLRX
Imported Animals: None
Native Plants: Very large numbers of Flowering Plants, all others are nigh-Extinct.
Imported Plants: None

Length of Day: About 24 Earth hours (about a quarter day shorter than ours.)
Length of Year: 216 FLRX days
Core: Solid core surrounded by a liquid outer core, composed of iron-nickel
Continents: Geographically -6, Culturally -8

Structures: Cities, cave nexuses, Grand Houses
% Urban: Very low, see further updates
Spaceports: The Space Union operated DNYOUS station in orbit is their sole means of permanent space travel
Imports: He3, Extraterrestrial minerals.
Exports: N/A
Capital: N/A
Population: 7.6 Billion
Coordinates: Section F6

FLRX is the home planet of the Nymeidians and is a highly varied world due to its size and unique make up. Rather than the Polar-Temperate-Tropical-Temperate-Polar climate layout of Earth, because of the orbital pull of NLSS and the very large ocean the climate zones of FLRX are Cold Temperate-Warm Temperate-Desert-Warm Temperate-Cold Temperate. The planet is host to a very large and complicated biosphere, but it is mostly made up of Rainforests, Grasslands, Desserts, and Tundra, Mountains, and Island chains. FLRX is also incredibly minerally varied, to the point where no two acres will have the same PH let alone inner content. All this manipulated their very unique evolution of the Nymeidians and the species on FLRX.

NLSS
Name: NLSS
Adjective: NLSS
Sun: IOUY
Sun Type: Class G Yellow Main Sequence
Planet: FLRX

Size: 0.9% of Earth
Gravity: 0.9g
Order From Planet and Sun: Only moon of sixth planet
Rings: No
Average Temperature: Unknown
Atmosphere: A thick cloud of Impure Anti-Hydrogen
Atmosphere Density: Unknown, enough to from a massive cloud cover akin to Venus’
Liquid: Unknown
Land-Liquid Ratio: Unknown, probably zero
Average Terrain: rocky

Main Species: None
Native Animals: None
Imported Animals: None
Native Plants: None
Imported Plants: None

Length of Day: N/A
Length of Year: N/A
Core: Solid Anti-Iron based core surrounded by a liquid outer core.
Continents: One, the entire surface

Structures: None
% Urban: 0%
Spaceports: none
Imports: none
Capital: none
Population 0
Coordinates: Square F6

FLRX's moon NLSS is one of the rarest finds in the Galaxy, being composed entirely of anti-matter, NLSS is also unique in that its large size in relation to its planet is something unseen in inner worlds. NLSS has been hypothesized to be a mass of ENM(Excess Non-Linear Matter), leftover Anti-mater form the big bang that slid through the universe like an Ice Cube on a frying pan, until a chunk came to rest in the empty space of  the  IOUY system , wherein it colligated  into a celestial body like any  other mass of stray particles. NLSS is known as one of the most beautiful objects on FLRX, as it’s always has a faint red sparkle, caused by the incessant explosions of interstellar dust  that bombard it’s atmosphere. Despite its alignment, NLSS has a similar chemical and physical make-up to planets such as Titan or pre-water Earth, being an Iron world with a heavy Hydrogen atmosphere. All landing probes to NLSS have failed (obviously) but a small observation satellite orbits it at the FLRX-NLSS LaGrange Point and has done so since 1.98E2 A.G.U.

Hold on, an entire MOON composed of ANTIMATTER? That's not possible! If so much as a speck of dust were to touch it, the whole thing would go kablooie, would it not? A chain-reaction set off by the tremendous amounts of energy in the explosions? Not to mention that if so much as a car-sized asteroid were to contact it, it would wipe out the entire system, practically.

No, anti-matter can only annihilate matter in equal amounts, one gram of dust would destroy one gram of anti-dust. The explosion is just energy, it stirs around the crust a bit but no actual  annihilation is done. The moon gets hit with about a pound of interspacial dust a year, so it's slowly decaying by a rate of one pound per year.

How in the flippedy flying f*ck would it even form?! Antimatter isn't magnetic to other antimatter automatically, and even if by some Ass Pull explanation of how a MOON OF ANTIMATTER would form, it would still run into matter on the way to the moon! Oh, and doesn't your ludicrous statement contradict the fact that a single gram of antimatter could annihilate New York City?

I try not to nitpick, but this just flies in the face of basic science.

Oh I was waiting for this.

A. Gravity. Anti-matter has mass, and thus is affected by gravity just like any other substance, a large mass of it would lump together and form and object the same way our planets were formed from dust.

B. You say that NYC thing a lot. Moons float in EMPTY SPACE the only matter it comes in contact with are stray particles from space, and acording to the laws of physics, antimatter and matter are destroyed in Equal Amounts. So sure the atmosphere gets hit with the energy equivlance of a couple nukes but since energy can't cause destruction (conservation of mass) all they do is stir the clouds up a bit. The interplanetary void acts as a natural protection agent against destruction.

You shouldn't go throwing tropes around unless you can back them up.

To add an adendm (cell phones don't allow edits). While the EXPLOSION wipes out the city, only a teaspoon of mass is actualy gone, the rest is just moved around, likewise as NLSS is hit withv cosmic dust, high powered explosions dot its. Atmosphere. But seeing as how no matter of minute explosions could wipe out the whole moon. Likewise, a signifcang mass COULD sunder the moon (if it somehow got through enough atmosphere to be of optimal location) but FLRX acts as a gravity well, either slinging stray rocks away or pulling them down to FLRX itself.

Actually you didn't. How would you explain the large amounts of energy created from reactions such as these? The force of an asteroid hitting a moon is quite powerful by itself, but if the asteroid were made up of matter and the moon made up of anti-matter, this would create a huge amount of energy. We're talking the kind of energy that shifts planets out of their orbits. And since this is only a moon, orbiting a nearby larger planet, it would eventually knock it off its orbit and into the planet itself. Goodbye planet and goodbye any chance of creating any ecosystem whatsoever.

You can go ahead and write about this all you want, but no one will take you seriously, or accept your creatures as actual canon until you get rid of such a blatantly unrealistic error. Don't be angry if no one wants to RP with you.

Dude. Let me explain something. ENERGY. EVEN THOUGH THE LAW OF CONSERVATION EXISTS. CAN CAUSE DAMAGE. Plasma does damage beyond heat. EMP fatally damages electronic devices. ANTIMATTER DETONATIONS RELEASE LARGE AMOUNTS OF ENERGY. IT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE. And antimatter does not clump. In fact, the only way antimatter forms in planet-sized amounts is through something like the Big Bang, and that has long sence worn off. Remember, Matter and Antimatter are asymmetric. They do not exist in equal amounts. Between micrometoroids, solar wind, and all the other junk in space, including neutrino particles AKA dark matter, your antimatter planet goes boom.

Yeah. Do you really expect us to believe that enough anti-matter was floating around in one general area of a matter galaxy that it clumped together without any matter destroying it?

I'm sorry, that was my fault; I wasn't properly informing you. You see, if you recall the planet sheet FLRX and NLSS are very close in mass and gravitational effects, this creates an almost binary planet type system in which any foreign material is either slingshotted way from them both, or drawn into FLRX. Because of this, FLRX doesn’t share the asteroid shielding effects that Luna gives Earth, and it has far more craters. This was hinted at when I said
Likewise, a significant mass COULD sunder the moon (if it somehow got through enough of the atmosphere to be of optimal location) but FLRX acts as a gravity well, either slinging stray rocks away or pulling them down to FLRX itself.
I apologize for not giving more detail on the manner of their repulsion, The FLRX-NLSS gravity effect is actually a major plot point and will be delved upon later in their history (Starting at the dawn of the Nymeidian Golden Age). To sate you until then, the next in the series of updates will be released today. The amount of energy released is rather minute, about the force of a couple of nukes per day.  Space is just that , mostly empty, anything big enough to do  significant damage is shunted away by the gravity effect, and all the rest is too small to do any worse than a large explosion. So sure the upper atmosphere of NLSS is filled with blatts non-stop, there is really no way for an explosion, even one that big (which is rather minute in the scales of the planet)  to really affect FLRX that way. NLSS is a very small leftover piece of a once large chunk of anti-matter, as it went through the (mostly positive matter) universe, contact with matter whittled it away to its current size, once it fell to rest in the IOUY system and fell into orbit with what would become FLRX, the contact with positive matter so little that it dint do much damage.
Dude. Let me explain something. ENERGY. EVEN THOUGH THE LAW OF CONSERVATION EXISTS. CAN CAUSE DAMAGE. Plasma does damage beyond heat. EMP fatally damages electronic devices. ANTIMATTER DETONATIONS RELEASE LARGE AMOUNTS OF ENERGY. IT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE. And antimatter does not clump. In fact, the only way antimatter forms in planet-sized amounts are through something like the Big Bang, and that has long since worn off. Remember, Matter and Antimatter is asymmetric. They do not exist in equal amounts. Between micrometeoroids, solar wind, and all the other junk in space, including neutrino particles AKA dark matter, your antimatter planet goes boom.


Let's crunch the numbers here, given the sum of all the dust, particles, solar winds and other assorted space junk that passes through the natural defenses  of the FLRX-NLSS gravity wells, there’s about a pound of mass hitting NLSS a day. That's about a total of 435 Nagasaki bombs per day. Now, each of these explosions is happening at infinitesimal occasions, all spread out through the planet, occurring at the edge of the NLSS atmosphere. Realistically, that's not close to enough power to make it to the surface let alone blow up the planet or change its orbit like you've suggested. In order to cause the amount of damage you have stated (lets go with destabilizing its orbit for the bare minimum) that would require an asteroid to hit with a mass of 4.11568409 E13 Kilograms (for reference, Pluto has a mass of 1.3 E22 Kg) Since anything of that size wouldn’t hit outside of very rare circumstances (about the odds of something like Haley’s Comet hitting earth). So frankly NLSS would be relatively harmless to any FLRX life, despite the fact that most of it evolved while NLSS was in orbit.

Yeah. Do you really expect us to believe that enough anti-matter was floating around in one general area of a matter galaxy that it clumped together without any matter destroying it?

Enough? In terms of scaling a planet-sized hunk of anti-matter is chump change compared to the size of the universe. Back at the point of time fresh off the big bang, where there were just huge chunks of Anti- and positive matter around, the imbalance resulted in a positive matter dominated universe (in comparison to Anti-Matter, positive matter actually holds a very small percentage of the universe), with anti-matter being regulated to fields that rapid decay (such as the effect of putting an ice cube in hot water.) As these chunks eventually were used up, (relatively) microscopic bits got caught "in-between"; falling into areas where the matter content is so low that they could "survive." NLSS is one of those examples. It's technically still decaying, but at such a rate that it can remain "stable" enough to from a system with FLRX.

Ignoring all of the other things that are wrong with it, thats not how planets form. Early solar systems are chaotic belts of matter. Any antimatter, no matter how concentrated, would be destroyed in a relatively short time.

And antimatter has just as much mass as regular matter. Mass would be drawn into each of the binary partners equally.

The Nine Nations

The Nine nations are the premier power on the planet of FLRX. So called due to their status as the founders of the Space Union (and subsequent status as regional and world powers) each nation has served as a mass node as well as a hub for there status. Each Nation (where applicable) serves as the chair state for their respective Union and each nation has full access to heavy scale and WMD caliber weapons. They are:



The Joint Countries cw Gallitheria


INTRODUCTION

Background: In the year 1.78E3 the Northern sector of the West Continent was fractured into a variety of settlements Varying from foreign colonies, to misplaced tribal groups, to exiles from other nations. The economy and status of this area was , due to the ragtag nature of the bunch, severely disrupted and once the nation enacted a form of dependence outside nations boycotted there wealthy resource trade, almost collapsing the entire Continental Economy. To counteract this, Twenty one nations on the Northwest, in an act of defiance and sheer self preservation were forced to enter into a credit union using a common form of currency and massively specialized and regulated economy to stay aloft. This, however only provoked the foreign nations leading to a massive invading fleet (composed of furious nations that intended to cut up the NW between them) invaded. This however back fired as the already close nations were forced together by military necessity and using guerilla tactics and the long distances involved for the enemy to there advantage they were able to defeat them. After the war in the year 1.8E3 a new government was formed united all the nations under single republican rule. Flash forward a couple centuries and due to the relative distance from nay close competition, the JCG has expanded to encompass a large chunk of the Northwest, while expanding its influence over the entire Western Continent. It has, in a short few centuries expanded into a sprawling super nation composed of 80 interconnected and mutually independent Counties all of which are unionized under one banner.

The legislature has exclusive law making power, but cannot legally take any action  of its own (that is the duty of the PMC and the various departments and extremities of the Executive Branch)
Judicial branch: The Gran Jury contains a group of ten forced neural judges, whom are appointed by the Assembly. They have exclusive oversight over the action of the PMC and they oversee impeachment against the Executive Branch.
Political parties and positions: Federalist  Party [center-north], Unitary Party [low-south], Liberal Party [Moderate-east]
International organization participation: Space Union [SU], Kaon Knights Customers [KKC], Galitherian Union (chair) [GU],
Flag description: Green field with white crescent opening upward with a diamond-esque spear pulsing through tit with a large red circle at the intersection of the spear and crescent.

MILITARY

Military branches: SUDF (Space Union Defense Force), Kaon knights,  The Executive Adjudicators
Military service age and obligation: Adulthood
Citizens available for military service: Unknown



And now for something completely different. Rather than go by votes I’ll be updating in a series. The first of which is the Nine Nations. Each day I’ll update an entry into a series along with a fan request. The one I chose will b eth first one to post. So get those fingers typing! Feel free to discuss each update as I live off of people talking about me! Tomorrow, The Kaon Knights!

The Kaon Knighthood


INTRODUCTION

Background: Back in 1.13E3 the True Church* had held a stabilized reign over the vast majority of the West Central Continent. However, their poor handi;;ng of the post–Imperial economy had lead to a massive fiscal crisis and the entire area was in nigh ruins. Contrast this to the wealthy and socially enlightened nations of the Central East. A new iteration of Al-Akhair and Sejiin had become quite popular here and a series of libraries and financial institutions lead to the mass profit of all those in the area. Brought on by Jealousy and Will, the Church began the policy of what would become known as the Great Reclamation. With any standing army being an incredibly faulty excuse for an affair the Church had High Pontiff Leon X Braidley** sign the Cardiff di Leonia officially forcing very nation within the continent under a forced peace. They then instituted an extra-governmental state, pooling in all the best and the (ostensibly) faithful of every nation within the area. By the time they were done, they had amassed a highly skilled army of ten thousand strong. In what would be known as a The Righteous March, these 10,000 soldiers would reign down south, eliminating anything in their path until they held control of the entire area. Having the nexus of religious study under their control the Church was satisfied with letting the people rot and enjoying their good fortune. However, there the knights came upon ancient doctrines and fables of Sejiin an Al-Akhair. Messages of The Prophet of Salvation that first shed light unto the mysteries of Al-Akhair. Here they took on assembly based upon the small town were the relics were founded and they Became known as the Kaon Knights. Rather than rtunt ot tehr ehosocutes, they fotidied the town until it became a massive fortress. Pleased with their holding of what they belived to be there property, the church allowed their families to immigrate and strongarmed the various nations into granting them fiefdoms and duchies. However this would not be wise for on the date of 4/17 1.2E3 the Kaon Knights announced there freedom and independence from the church and the world and offered to be an army of God.  The Church tried to get it back of course, but the weakened and worthless forces of the Continent and Church were no match for the 10,000 mightiest warriors in the land. Quickly making peace with the very marauders they had take land from they signed treaties that allowed them to reign peacefully in the area. The Knights then took up a stance as a massive army, a country of warriors. They devoted there entire economy to being hired out by foreign nations, as bodyguards, mercenaries, or soldieries. Unlike most PMCs, the Articles of Kaon were testament and any job deemed not holy was turned down. Soon many countries saw the skill and some nations gave up having their own police force or military all together. As there fame grew, immigrants came to train and their numbers swelled.  And as the Second Age of War came to a rise states all over were scrambling to fit into the edicts of their creed if only for the sternly needed assistance. Currently the Kaon Knights act as a global police force, having authority over 94% of the planet and courts recognized by most of the worlds governments. Being a huge Military Industrial complex, everything in the state is devoted to fighting. Education in Military and civic engineering for public schools. Huge agrarian economies to feed the populace. And a Democratic Military order that became the model for organizations like it the world over.

No. I won't, because you just did.  :P
Besides, you said North part of the West Continent. North America is the only continent I know by that description. Then again, it could just as easily be Canada. It's not like former colonies are capable of not having a War of 1812, right?  :P
Plus, exiles, native tribal groups, and foreign colonies...
Blockading the harbors...
Guerilla tactics to fight foreigners trying to retake the colonies?
THE MIDDLE OF THE NORTH SECTOR OF THE WEST CONTINENT...
(USA is in Central North America)
Constitutional Federal Republic?
It cannot be denied. The Nine Nations is America. ... or Canada, depending on how you look at it. It's really America as it SHOULD be... or Canada. None of this is to be offensive, of course. I just had to draw the comparison. Also, their capital is YOU!?
