A Hitchhiker's guide to the Insaniverse
« on: September 20, 2010, 08:15:25 am »
This is my thread where I post detailed backgrounds for various creations of mine.
WHAT IS THE INSANIVERSE?

The "Universe" or "Galaxy" where my creatures are located and live. The Insaniverse is my custom Universe that I basically use so that I control all aspects of the setting I tell my stories in.

Features:

GROX ARE A REAL THREAT
HUMANS ARE REAL, IF THEY STILL LIVE MAY BE EXPLAINED LATER ON, PROBABLY DEAD
SPODE IS REAL, BUT HE IS NOT BELIEVED BY EVERY SINGLE RACE IN THE UNIVERSE
EACH RACE HAS THEIR OWN CURRENCY, BUT A GALACTIC ALLIANCE USES A CURRENCY OF GALACTIANS.



All creatures mentioned can interact with eachother, although they may live in a different time than others. I may make a timeline later.



I take inspiration from Mass Effect and Alien Planet, so expect a bit of references here and there.



The difference between ANCIENT and PAST is that Ancients passed away / were created billions of years ago (passed away for just ancients, created for Ancients - Present) and past passed away less time ago,  1 - 1 billion, after that it's counted as Ancient.

CURRENT RACES:
The Eroga
White Lavatic
ANCIENT RACES:
The Oraman
ANCIENT - PRESENT RACES:
The Dark and Manly association
ANCIENT - PAST RACES:

PAST RACES:


(Ancient means they lived and died a long time ago, Ancient - Present means they're a bloody old race, Ancient - Past means they died / became extremely scattered recently)

Eh? Another person using the Grox, Spode and Humans to fill in what their imagination couldn't create.

Aye. By that definition, all fanfiction authors and comic book writers are talentless hacks.

First of all, I like the idea of the Grox.

Second of all, as I stated, Spode may be a "God" but only a minor one that not many believe in. (Although I didn't state this very clearly, I only kept him in in the case that I wanted to use him for whatever reason. So far, I have no plans for him.)

Third of all, I like the idea of Humans interacting with alien species.


I think its just his creatures or something. dont worry about it too much. its gonna disapear by next week.

Pretty much this. I don't plan to RP / interact with other species in my stories, if I ever make one or five that is.

They are. Fanfiction is written by people who are uncreative. As to the comic book writers statement I must disagree. Many comics take place in a shared universe so characters of the same timeline will pop up as would characters with access to inter-dimensional travel and/or time travel. I am simply saying that by using the Grox and Spode he is stating that he had no better ideas. The Grox could be replaced by an original creature that serves the same purpose. Spode is a 'god' so using him in any way is uncreative. Gods are easy to make and design. I will demonstrate my point.

Yudi: A small insectoid species bent on killing and/or enslaving all life in the universe. (Equivalent to the Grox)

Pont: A god which takes on a nondescript humanoid form. Is often associated with commerce and money. (A god)

As you can see its not hard to put a little work into your creations to create a small amount of originality.

This is not always true, Badger. If that were the case, then every retelling of ancient mythology is just bad fanfic. Many people write fanfic because they thought something was going to happen in the work, but that thing didn't happen. Fanfic allows us to pretend that it did. Besides, nothing is truly original. Everybody's inspired by something. Even the very first stories that people told were influenced by real events, meaning that the story had, in essence, already been written. By your standards, literature, religion, even our very personalities are all fanfic, Badger. Fanfiction is not bad, just like tropes are not bad. They are both tools.

Fanfiction is made by people who can't write their own tales. My standards also vary greatly on the matter. Religions are all the same and are now useless thanks to science (I won't get into that here.) Literature is original because it is different enough that you don't get bored or annoyed. Roman and Greek mythology are examples of un-originality. The Greek gods were the original ones and the Romans took them and slightly changed their names. This is what I mean by unoriginal work. Personalities are a wholly different can-of-worms and not necessary to correct your fallacy. All stories are indeed re-tellings of previous ones but the only good ones are re-tellings that have been changed enough to be interesting. My two example beings (The Yudii [plural of Yudi] and Pont) are based on other beings which were in turn based on others but each one was tweaked enough that most people won't notice.

I'll try to break this down.
1. Have you ever been to Troper Works? Plenty of tropers have their own works AND fanfiction.
2. True on the "most people won't notice" thing... but then again, most people don't care enough to. If they did, we'd have stopped writing stories a long time ago.

In summation, Badger, while your argument may or may not apply here, it seems a bit... one-dimensional to me. That's all I'm really saying.
Also, religions aren't useless. They make some people feel like they are working towards something greater than themselves. It also keeps them from doing what I did and thinking WAY too hard about how nature works. Try sleeping after figuring out that when your parents had you, they were technically doing... THAT THING with a very distant cousin. GO AHEAD AND TRY SLEEPING WELL AFTER FIGURING THAT OUT. IT DOES NOT WORK. But I digress... what we really need is an expert to come in here and analyze this debate. Don't you agree?

I have not and have no interest to. Also I have thought about how nature works and I know that I was conceived through a very distant form of incest. That is how mutations are formed and without the incest occurring humans would never have evolved. If you want to get someone to see if I am right go ahead.

Har har I just finished mah homework mahself.
And guys, stop whining. If the person wants to create his universe, where the Grox are the little piss-on's they usually are, and Spode's some god nobody has heard of and even fewer people care about, fine. All the more power to him. Take yer talk of fanfiction and comic books onto another topic, so you don't ruin his.
Good day to you all.

Here's a small idea I have: Just because an idea is unoriginal doesn't mean it can't still be engaging; the same way that some particularly good movies can be watched over and over without significant loss of entertainment value. Fanfiction is the idea of building off of something that's already there, in a sense: It is set  in a predetermined universe, with predetermined places and characters, but they are still good, well written stories that give new life to an old story. So while some stuff is unoriginal, it doesn't mean that it is boring, or uncreative, it just means that the person writing it wanted to use something that was there, rather than make something completely up.

What is a 'mah'?

What is a Grammah Nahzi?
THE EROGA


The females of the Eroga race are extremely intelligent, but weak. They discovered how to use and create tools a few thousand earth years before any other race. By the time other races managed to learn to use tools, the Eroga were already a civilized race. The Females are able to use slight mind control on the uncivilized / idiotic creatures, such as the males. They are able to control more than one creature at once, the largest amount recorded has been nine. The females live for about 250-497 earth years.

The Erogian females are able to breed with either gender, more reason for them to find Males to be useless.


The Males are very powerful, but they are completely idiotic. It is common for a female to travel with a group of males, so that her psychic abilities would keep the Males out of harms way. It was very common for males to be enslaved at birth by their mothers / by females unable to mate. Eventually, they became hated by society. The Males live for about 150-225 earth years.

EROGIAN SOCIETY
The people are ruled by an "Almighty Council". The Council consists of the most intelligent females of the Erogian, and some "Eroga Lavalan Olak". (Explained later). The people of Erogian Society have never rebelled, as the Council is generally orderly, and the Erogians are naturally honest, caring about most of everyone of their species.

 Males have ultimately been wiped out as of the project codenamed "People's Poison", which, in Erogian, is "Egolla Kolikft" (The Erogians have several words that are extremely hard to pronounce, most relate to scientific advancements, however.)

Eroga Lavalian Olak


A few hundred years before the tribal stage, the females had a phase of evolution before their final stage, which is pictured now. This stage had major differences from the previous stage, which was a bird-like, four legged herbivore. This stage was able to live infinitely, and was much smarter than normal females. However, they needed to eat five times as much, and got hungry two times faster, so many of them died of starvation. Evolution responded with the non infinite living final stage. The few Lavalak (Erogians use this term as a shortening) still remaining all have seats in the council, or other important positions. Their thousands of years have given them amazing intelligence.

Codename: People's Poison
A little bit before the first kind of flying tank was invented, the Council decided that Males were a massive problem and needed to be eliminated. They created a poison that would slowly kill the female's ability to produce males, as science has been giving females the ability to do men's work with "Gene Unlockers" that let females gain strength of the men. They considered going public, but they realized that some people would rebel against the "Killing of men", so, they made secret contracts with every food supplier on the planet to add this Poison to their food. However, during the destruction, a Grox ship appeared, setting up a station on a nearby planet. They ended up realizing the planet was naturally extremely radioactive. They blew it up and fled the system, however, a small amount of radiation came to the Erogian home planet. This radiation, combined with the "People's Poison", caused madness in many of the Erogians, and caused a mutated species. This marked the start of the first ever Civil War. However, they were quickly stopped, as they were insane and their plans were usually idiotic. One side effect was the creation of "Laffalic". A few years later, everyone had successfully been poisoned, and could no longer produce males. The council said the radiation attack a few years back had caused their bodies to mutate, and that this was a tragic, but helpful event. The remaining males were enslaved with robotic technology, and their organs were harvested to be turned into fertilizer / food, since the planet was running low on resources, and they had an excess of metal, they replaced each organ with robotic parts.

ROBOTIC SLAVES

The Council decided to turn the males into unwilling robotic slaves. They added virtual intelligence to replace their brains and give them a BIT of intelligence. Their robotic parts allow them to live for much longer, usually 900-1700 earth years.

SLAGOGA

The basic form. The Slagoga are Males who could not survive with all their organs replaced with robotic parts, so they were left as "Slagoga". Slagoga means "Harvested Slave" in Erogian. The Erogians don't know that the organs are used as food, only as fertilizers. Their head arm is completely cut off and harvested, their feet are replaced, and they are given a new mouth.

VALON

Those who can handle all their organs being replaced are turned into these robots. They have robotic spine maintainers all over their backs, which keep their spines from bending back. The Valon, as they are called, have a name that means "Living Dead". Basically, their name means Zombie.

LAFFALIC

When the Grox caused the radiation from the planet to be released, the females bodies reacted with the radiation, which cancelled out the poison in a way, causing "monstrosities". But, they were not hated. They had the female's intelligence, if not better intelligence, and almost as much strength as males. But, their lifespans were shorter and many times they had weak immune systems. The Laffalic still live on, although they ended up mostly creating their own societies. The Laffalic are able to breed, even though they are "Genderless" according to Erogians. (Laffalic means "Genderless Being"). During the civilization stage, several Laffalic gained a seat in the council, and are still very respected. They live for about 300-668 earth years.

SPACE BASED CIVILIZATION
When the first space ship was made and found traces of life on a nearby planet, the Council was overjoyed. They quickly focused all their resources on creating better space ships and training more men. The Erogians are an adaptable race. While they prefer peaceful resolutions, they can quickly turn to military action, with their massive military force. They even have a special psychic division, based on the female's slight Mind control abilities. They use certain drugs to enchance their abilities, allowing them to control more intelligent species, etc. The generals usually outfit themselves with robotic expansions, to give themself longer lifespans and make them more powerful in their old age. As of the current time, the Eroga are an extremely successful race, despite several wars, they hardly have any enemies anymore, even friends with the ex-robotic slaves. (See: The Freedom Fight)

EDITED EXTRA: The Laffalic still exist, as they can breed with themselves. Althought a minority, as it is fifteen times harder for them to breed, they still live and continue to gain wisdom. Many of them died in the Freedom Fight Massacre.

THE FREEDOM FIGHT
When the radiation struck, the Males started becoming more intelligent. When they were outfitted with robotic parts, they became even more intelligent. They developed ways to ensure they lived twice as long as expected, and were slowly gaining more intelligence. They, secretly, built robotic slaves for themselves to do their work, and the Council didn't realize this and never paid attention to them. By the time most of the military had left to conquer the planet of a race that had made several threats and attacked several cargo ships, the Robots were at twice female's level of intelligence. They decided it was finally time, and awoke their robot armies. They stormed the cities, killing thousands. They easily massacred the army, the Erogian death to Robot Slaved death ratio being 12:1. They escaped from the planet, using their robotic parts to figure out how to use the ships. They established a base on another planet, and started building their own society. When the military got back from it's conquer, it was shocked to see everything in ruin. The Council lost 50% of it's members, the planetary military was dead, and the cities were burning, wrecked. They were ordered to fully purge the enemy Robot's planet, but the robots were already fully defended. The main robots had turned themselves into war machines, and the defenses were amazing.

The males contacted the military, saying that this was revenge for "Thousands of years of injustice", and that if they were smart, they would leave and never try to attack again. The Robotic Slaves turned into their own small empire, being extremely diplomatic and trade-based. Eventually, they formed an alliance with the erogians.

Badger, what you're saying makes no sense.

The Shadowchasers Universe (Yugioh 5DS)

Shinji and Warhammer 40 K (NGE Waehammer 40 K)

Embers (Avatar:The Last Airbender)

All of these are fanfiction and all of them have dedicated fandoms and bases in of themselves and independent from there parent works.

Likewise the vast majority of Comics are writen by those who didn't "create" them. Is Grant Morrison's award-winning run on Batman "unoriginal" because he didn't create him some 70 years ago? Alan Moore's Animal Man or Swamp Thing? How about the DCAU that was basically a fanfic. Your reasoning invalidates entire genres of reading" saying you don't like a certain work is understanable but to dismis literally THOUSANDS of instances of an artwork out of hand is just foolish?

I don't know? What is a 'Grammah Nahzi'? I assume you mean 'grammar Nazi'. I can assure you that I am in no way genocidal towards members of the Jewish Faith or anyone of Hebrew Descent. I also possess no genocidal tendencies towards grammar so your statement is void.

And to our current programming: It took you an hour to right that much? Slow typer is slow.

Back. Oh and, I'm actually a fast typer. It's just that the whole story had only existed in my head, and I had to create some of the creatures in Spore, as I found the robots a bit... unsatisfactory. And I had to go back into spore several times, rewrite sections of it, come up with extra plot, etc.

Badger, what you're saying makes no sense.

The Shadowchasers Universe (Yugioh 5DS)

Shinji and Warhammer 40 K (NGE Waehammer 40 K)

Embers (Avatar:The Last Airbender)

All of these are fanfiction and all of them have dedicated fandoms and bases in of themselves and independent from there parent works.

Likewise the vast majority of Comics are writen by those who didn't "create" them. Is Grant Morrison's award-winning run on Batman "unoriginal" because he didn't create him some 70 years ago? Alan Moore's Animal Man or Swamp Thing? How about the DCAU that was basically a fanfic. Your reasoning invalidates entire genres of reading" saying you don't like a certain work is understanable but to dismis literally THOUSANDS of instances of an artwork out of hand is just foolish?




Back OT, pretty good, what exactly will you be doing with these?

I don't plan to RP with them, only to possibly make stories regarding events in the "Insaniverse", such as, wars / galactic plague (The Galacticus virus is coming for you!).

I don't really RP, I'm pretty bad at it and usually end of jerking off after getting bored.  :'(

Edit:

http://www.spore.com/view/myspore/InsaniChan

My Spore, if anyone wants it. My robotic guys aren't there because Robot parts are a communist conspiracy and I'm butthurt.

Oh and, I'm going to go upload some of my old creations from my, err, less le- Actually, nevermind.

Double Edit:

Okay nevermind, I'm going to go play Mirror's Edge.

Triple Edit:

Okay nevermind, I'm probably going to play spore again.

Fine so far, as far as I've seen.

I totally understand where you're coming from.

Don't get deterred by those guys which constantly criticize you for such technical matters as typing speed. By their logic, Stephen Hawking has the typing speed of a paramecium and therefore shouldn't be respected, at all.

So yeah. Just keep moving and don't mind such meaningless fluff.


Aye. By that definition, all fanfiction authors... ...are talentless hacks.
They are.

Ha.

Try saying that with a straight face to these guys without getting set on fire.

Alternate History is, basically, fanfiction of the original timeline. And I, for one, have seen countless examples of excellent alternate history, some far better than even these so-called "original stories" you keep saying.

Intolerance FTW fail...   :(

Bump. Updated op.

ANCIENT
THE ORAMAN EMPIRE


THE ORAMAN - PRIMITIVE TIMES

The Oraman evolved in a harsh environment. Food was scarce, it was hard to tell which food tries to eat you and which doesn't, massive monsters thrice the size of sky scrapers destroyed caves with their thundering footsteps...

The Oraman (not Oramen, Oraman is both singular and plural) naturally were loners. Large beasts caused them to stay alone, as they were easier to be seen and slaughtered in groups. Due to lack of food, they usually cannibalized eachother.

Their loner nature didn't work quite well with their biology. The Oraman have three genders, the third being a psychic who has no role in reproduction except 'linking' with the female to calm her mentally. Without one of the third gender (Known as Lipolk in Oraman, a mix of the word for Male (Likop) and the word for female (Polkot)) females usually became extremely stressed and killed the males and then themselves before the child's birth. The "Lipolk" also prepared nests.

After the child's birth, the children were usually raised until they knew basics of survival, then kicked out of the nest. After birth, it was common for one of the three parents to kill the other two, which happened 90% of the time, the other 10% consisting mostly of them being eaten / killed by a different species before they could get the chance.

They were complete loners, as stated before, and one of the smallest creatures on their planet. However, they were not weak. They had multiple poisonous substances, amazingly strong acid, deadly poison, and their teeth were nearly impossible to break. They coated their food in a special liquid that ultimately keeps them from rotting for years.

It was common for them to single handedly kill the skyscraper sized monsters (These monsters have tree-like skin, as in, trees can grow out of their skin, it was common for them to pretend to be forests.), and then live in them for lifetimes, and not knowing that several others also lived in the insides.

(They commonly live for 25-600 earth years, a massive difference, mostly depending on their genes. They are about the same size as an average human, which is massively small compared to some of the other creatures.)

SOME CREATURES OF THEIR PLANET:

Jitaptors: Large, bird like creatures, about 6x the size of an average human.

Lavrottest: The large, sky scraper like monsters that pretend to be trees. About fifty live on the planet, but they can live for millions of years, resting and regrowing their trees when they get old (Trees are the source of their energy), and when they die, they spread seeds which grow into more of them.
Picture below of an infant, who does not yet have his growth.


Jalkopf: A hideously large creature. Three times the size of a Lavrottest, this monstrosity is unique. It is not known how it got there, but it has been documented since the beginning of the tribal stage, and after the dissapearance billions of years ago, it still exists, roaming the planet.



TRIBAL TIMES OF THE ORAMAN

During the Tribal Stage, the Oraman empire developed a way to hold their caves together. They used their food preserving spit, mixed with their poison substance and a tiny bit of dirt to solidify metal sells around caves, extremely hard and not collapsing from earthquakes. Direct steps by Jalkopf or Lavrottest kept them from dying out quickly. They had no competition in their Tribal Times, as they mostly just stayed in caves and only went out to gather food. The only other tribes were more Oraman. Due to their lone wolf nature, it was common for villages being mostly made up of thieves, the leaders being killed and replaced with gang bosses.

NOT SO CIVILIZATION STAGE - SPACE


Once they managed to create underground civilizations, things got worse. The people started getting more aggressive, and eventually, nearly every Oraman city had become completely chaotic. With no rulers, the Oraman were destroying themselves, it was obvious that at this rate, they would become extinct within a matter of years.

But, one more advanced man stood up. With a group of more civilized Oraman mercs, he took control of one city, eventually conquering the others, getting around using stealth shields. Once he was complete ruler, he set up a communication channel to all the cities, and started his Lavrottest extinction program. He quickly got his mercs to destroy the fifty that had been alive, and launched several attacks on the Jalkopf, which proved it was invincible.

However, a human space ship had been searching for a target for it's ultimate experimental weapon.They wanted a remote planet with no cities or alien civilizations nearby, and due to the underground cities of the Oraman, they were fooled into thinking it was non sentient. They were about to kill the Jalkopf, when the Oraman shot down the battle cruiser, as even the most advanced ships could not handle a combination of Oraman being launched (using cannons) onto the ship, using acid to weaken it, then normal cannons attacking the soft spots.

The Oraman stole the technology and quickly learned to make their own space ships, and their own versions of this super weapon. They quickly dominated several human colonies, becoming even more advanced.

Meanwhile, the intelligent Oraman leader was getting old. He had himself turned into a cyborg, pictured below.


He ultimately made himself immortal, as all his organs were replaced with cybernetics, besides his brain, which was hooked up to several supporting machines to keep it from decaying and rotting.

The Humans discovered this eventually, after one ship managed to escape. The Humans started a war with the Oraman.

THE HUMAN - ORAMAN WAR
Enraged at the Oraman, the Humans sent their entire fleet at the Oraman. This was a mistake. While the mega fleet of Humans fought the Oraman and were winning, the second fleet, which was a research ship of enslaved humans and the Oraman overlord, The cyborg as above, they developed a primitive species of "Space cows"



The "Pinkeorite" were plague bearing monsters. They were massive, three times the size of a human, and were made of a special substance off their planet which was incredibly hard. They were called Pinkeorites by the humans, as they were pink and were blasted in like meteorites. They are completely immune to viruses, but can distribute them to others. The Oraman infected them with a massive amount of viruses, many of them being horrible engineered ones that were spread from human to human, and were unable to be stopped by the human immune system.

Then, the Humans dissapeared.

The Oraman searched for them high and low, amazed at how all their planets were empty. Eventually, an Oraman claiming to know where the humans were appeared to the cyborg overlord. He led the fleet to a space station filled with humanlike alien creatures that were non existant by galactic records, as they were never before seen.


When the fleet arrived, the Oraman overlord noticed all the humanlike aliens were evacuating, and started torturing the Oraman informant. The Oraman informant later told them that the humanlike aliens were actually Humans transformed, and that he and the humans were preparing a trap.

An attack by the human fleet destroyed the entire Oraman fleet, before they managed to use the betrayer's information, and afterwards, a galaxy-wide purge of Oraman cities began, but, during the Oraman leader's absence, the colonies had mostly reverted to their original, criminal state. They had mostly wiped themselves out, with hardly any survivors.

It is not known if they still live, some have reported seeing them, but ultimately, they just dissapeared.

For clarification, the Green humanlike guys were actually the humans, I had planned to detail this in a later report about the humans, but I decided it'd be boring to describe the humans instead of aliens. When they retreated, they were rushing to a gate that would spray them with a DNA unlocker which transformed them to normal humans again. I've edited the last post to show this. I've posted it here, as most of you probably won't notice it if you've already read it once.


Edit:
How coincidential. The Valon are trade based in space, and the Oraman are mean military guys in space. Odd.

Yeah, but the Valon look more like an evil race than diplomats / traders, and the Oraman look more like arrogant zealots.

CURRENT RACE:
WHITE LAVATIC

Overview:
The White Lavatic are a religious species with odd habits originating in the tribal stage. The White Lavatic have four genders, though it's disputed whether these are sub-types or genders. The females, the Males (Who are born with a chemical that intensely enhances muscle growth), the Lav'halak (The Third, who are smaller than males and females, but are nearly ten times faster than males.), the Unlak (The Fourth, who are the most intelligent and are all scientists in modern society.)

Each of the genders lives about 25-130 years, except the females, who live for 80-170 years.

Breeding
The Lavatic have the least sexual of reproductive systems - females can eat to produce eggs. However, due to the other three genders / sub-types and females having less chance* then the other genders to be born out of eggs, they are generally rare and highly protected. Usually, at least three males guard each female, with other males / Lav'halak gathering food to give to the females (They are never overweight, as whenever they do gain too much weight, it is automatically used to start the production of an egg. This is an unhelpful trait, as they can hardly survive without food like men can by storing extra food). Without male help, females usually lay a single egg during their lifespans, but with the help of others, they usually lay 5+.  They are generally treated as the highest class, with some tribes actually having religions based on females.

* Chances:
5% Female
55% Male
10% Unlak
30% Lav'halk


PRIMITIVE TIMES OF THE LAVATIC

Half of the Lavatic's homeworld was made up of caverns filled with intense heat and magma. The other half was nice. Except it wasn't. The Plains were dominated by those who were fast. The Lavatic were not fast. By those who were strong. The Lavatic were not strong. By those who could fly. The Lavatic could not fly. But there was one thing the Lavatic COULD do. The Lavatic could resist the heat, and so, they made their nests in the magma filled caves. They could swim in the magma without getting a single burn, but that was due to a strong outer plating. The Lav'Halak were the food gatherers, gathering corpses or food, whatever they could find near their caves. The Males sometimes, during a time with no food, would gang up from several nests (the Lav'Halak cooperated with eachother, no matter where they were from). These swarms usually consisted of 200+ males, and they would raid several nests, the nests' numbers of 30 each or so would fall easily, and only three at max died per nest.

They would continue until they got enough food. Other than gathering and hunting animals during food shortages, The Lavatic generally kept to themselves, in their caves.

TRIBAL TIMES

Once one of the Lavatic invented the first tool, the inventor quickly told all his friends and eventually, each of the Lavatic nests had turned into one, massive tribal village. They started coming out of their caves more, being able to defeat their enemies easier due to their new, powerful weapons. After the moving out of the caves, they defended their females much closer, as they were no longer in lavatic only territory.

The females were free to do whatever they wanted, mostly, as long as they kept it in the tribal grounds and had males guarding them. There were special female only hut where the females would talk or whatever, with the males guarding outside. When other species started gaining intelligence, the White Lavatic befriended and helped them with their technology, making many allies - and the ones who tried to kill the Lavatic, well, let's just say they had a very short tribal period.

CITY STAGE
The Lavatic use a system kind of like that of the United States, but with less power to the 'President'. The Lavatic themselves are the ones who count the votes, and generally they do not lie a lot, as the Lavatic religion states that lying is one of the worst things a man can do, and that it destroys honor completely

The befriended species of the Lavatic were given the technology to advance to the city stage, but some of them had become corrupt and greedy, and the befriended species started attacking the Lavatic, thinking they were weak because of how they only showed their social skills.

The Lavatic disproved this. In a matter of days (Their days are about 2.7 earth days), the "Massacre of Ten" unfolded. They defeated and eliminated all ten of their once allies.
Many of the Lavatic were shocked and didn't know that the traitors had attacked the Lavatic first, and disbanded from the main city. They slaughtered the leaders of the main city before doing this, and after finding footage proving that the rebels attacked first, the leaders all commited suicide. (Their religion clearly states that the killers of innocents must be killed, not mattering who did it, just that it is done).

All the cities were in chaos, when the Erogians, who had been watching over the Lavatic, stepped in and took power.
 They were the ones to create the Lavatic's religion, by appearing in a space ship designed to look like ' a god' and had it talk to several villages, creating a religion, or book of rules that several followed, designed to establish a friendly community. It included several prophecies, that the Lavatic would fall to ruin and be saved the heroes in Black, which the Erogian used to gain power to bring the Lavatic back to a civilized status. Once this was complete, they elected several Presidents to rule the cities, and went back to their planet in the Lavatic's system, watching.

The Erogians saw that the Lavatic could be a very interesting race, and a good ally in time, they had been working on bringing several species to sentience.


The Cities, although they were not united as one, were extremely friendly to eachother and shared many technologies. When one of the cities invented the first space ship, it got all the other cities to join it, and they launched to space.

SPACE STAGE

Once they came to space, the Erogians greeted them using their translators, and the Lavatic quickly proposed an alliance, remembering how they had saved the Lavatic from chaos before. The Lavatic were given alot of the Erogian's advanced technology, and are a trade based empire. They're very Religious, and neutral among the galaxy. They have many mining stations across the galaxy, and are known for enhancing goods, such as making spices that taste much better, diamonds that shine, etc with Lavatic technology (of course, they shared it with the Erogians) Every war can be won with a few million Galactions, every enemy can be bought with a few million more.


The Females maintained their basic role as in the tribal stage, although much more free, the females were completely free on most 'Main' planets, which were guaranteed safe, protected very well on the more dangerous ones.

Bump. Sorry, been a bit absorbed with the l4d and tf2 updates, and I recently started 3D as part of my schooling.

I don't know if I'll be able to commit myself to a large fic at the current time.

I'm thinking of reviving some of my older creatures.
Any ideas which? (Soem of the threads have multiple creatures, so choose any of the creatures within)

Yeah, I plan to redesign them almost completely if I DO remake them.

Sorry, if you've noticed, I've had a real disliking towards you  :-[

Am I supposed to feel bad now?

Reading over my all creatures, I find that they all make me shiver, and can hardly be used again.

Probably going to try recreating one of them in spore and then remaking a backstory for them. (Probably the Loxus, a personal favorite.)

Oh yeah, Oddly enough, I remember thinking of that psychotic guy who was always trying to kill Bart from the Simpsons when I was making the Loxus' hair.

Edit: Who was he? Sideshow Mel?

Double Edit: I might represent some of my major events with GA, such as how Apocolips' Apocalypse is more or less canon, although I haven't yet established the Apocolips, I shall do so later, when I have developed more ideas about their cultural systems and beliefs.

Bump. Sorry all, had to get a new drive, get my steam backup running on Windows 7 (It KEEPS. EFFING. CRASHING. DURING. INSTALL).

Now I have the problem of forgetting to back up my creations, and Spore won't let me register a new acc...

Bump again. Wow, this thing sure died.

THE DARK AND MANLY ASSOCIATION
Ancient - Present


The Dark (Known as this by the entire galaxy, their real name is not pronounceable by any race besides themselves and the Manly)

The Dark are a deceitful and untrustworthy race. It is common to refer to thieves and rip offs as Dark ones, due to the Dark's long and deceitful reign. They were weak and didn't have any real survival skills besides their ability to sneak and go unseen, however, they were able to impress and seduce other races into trusting them. It was common for them to befriend a race one day, and then in the night, kill them in their sleep, and use their carcasses for heat or to scare of intruders, then eventually leave their stolen nest.

They had an extremely hard time surviving, their planet was a swamp, which challenged the Dark and Manly most, as they were not ideal for moving through swamps and forests.

They eventually met the Manly, an idiotic yet powerful race. They befriended them, and, actually didn't betray them. Since that day, any existing Manly have served as clients to the Dark.

They were a single gendered race, and did not require any stimulation to breed - they bred every five earth years, which were about 20 years of their home planet, during 'mating season.' This was disabled when they reached 100 earth years, during this point they would either die from a side effect of their breeding ability disabled, or live on for another 50 years as elders. Strangely enough, their life spans and breeding disabling dates were exact, they never lived 145 years instead, or maybe 120, or 160, either 100 from their deaths, or 150 as elders.

They were herbivorous, and typically stored herbs and such in the green, gooish part on their bellies.

The Dark are very interesting in how they were designed - they are born with large bellies and shockingly, their stomaches are usually empty, and serve no use except to carry items. The Green spot on his belly is actually goo-like and allows for them to reach into a special storage area, that allows them to store food and items. In modern society, many Dark have their 'Storage Stripes' removed and covered up with their own skin.


The Manly (They call themselves this to make them sound fierce, although this hardly works.)

The Manly are extremely idiotic carnivores, who, however, are agile and strong. They were the first 'friend race' of the Dark who survived their friendship and wasn't betrayed. The Dark noticed that together, their flaws were void, the Manly were powerful idiots, and the Dark were intelligent weaklings.

The Manly have two genders, and, to mate, the female must devour the male, as the... items... needed for reproduction can only be gained by devouring the males. However, one male creates several offspring, so some believe it is a 'fair trade'.

As time went on, the Manly became more and more loyal to the Dark. The Manly were mostly the Dark's body guards, or "Enforcers".

They are Dark's last and first line of defense, when they want quick destruction or when deceit and stealth fails...

They typically live between 30 - 70 earth years.

-TRIBAL STAGE-

During the Tribal Stage, the Dark and Manly alliance began organizing squads, their 'Darsassin squads' and 'Enforcer Squads'. The Darsassin squads included all Darks, whereas the Enforcer Squads had mostly all Manlies, with one Dark commanding the unit.

The Darsassin Squads were used mostly against the enemies more powerful than anything they had, or just when their Enforcer Squads were being trained / healed - the Darsassin would either present themselves as friends and then murder everyone in the night, or kill off tribe members far away, one at a time.

The Enforcer squads were for when the Dark wanted things done with no failures. The Manly were mostly the prime attack force, who pretty much got things done near perfectly.

The Dark started creating a system for the Manly, that only allowed the weakest and least intelligent / most clumsy / most useless breed. The male's genes didn't matter, only the females'. It worked pretty well, as the weak ones died, while the strongest ended up fighting and dying for the Dark.

--City Stage--

The City stage was a breeze for the Dark. The Manly were too stupid to rebel, and even when other Darks of influence rebelled and tried to make their own nations, the Manly were loyal to their original factions. The Capital Empire, as it was called, was quite easy.

Noticeable during this time is the Arborus Rampages, in which tree like monsters began to start to appear, and would typically pop out of forests at random, killing thousands of Manlies and Darks, alike, who had become weaker due to the ease of technology. They were extremely fast, and amazingly vicious - It was easy for them to hide within forests.


A typical arborus Male. The Females usually hid as trees and were never actually seen, possibly, the Arborus were an all male race.

The Dark found this to be a significant problem. They started genetically modifying the Arborus' prime prey creatures, turning them more powerful, to starve the Arborus.


This did not work, and all it did was cause a massive balance problem - Many of the planet's lowest food chain creatures were now large and destructive, and many creatures had no source of food, which caused bigger creatures to die from their prey starving.

The Dark were not stupid. They knew they had little time left to either find a new planet or fix the balance of nature. They were near the stage of being able to travel to space, but were a bit out of reach. They, did, however, have a broadcasting device. They sent an SOS signal out of their planet, saying they were a rich Diamond colony under attack by vicious monsters. An Oraman ship, blinded by possible riches, landed. The Manly Enforcers seized the vessel and executed each of the Oraman. Including, an Oraman general.

The Oraman, however, were busy in their war against the Humans, they payed little attention to an Oraman ship dissapearing in an uncharted part of the galaxy.

In a few earth years, they had completed their first ship. After a few more years, they began calling mass evacuations, and so began, the space Stage...

-- Wanderer Stage (SPACE STAGE PART ONE) --

The Dark and Manly lived in a rather unkown part of space. The Dark and Manly star ships had been drifting for a hundred earth years so far, and the newest generation mostly forgot how life on planets was.

The last remaining Elders were starting to get annoyed. They demanded action, and the Top Darklings (Who were replaced every fifty years, in a competition which tested intelligence, deceit, and strategy) agreed. They started activating their engines for the first time in a century, when the old council, which was recently replaced, started becoming paranoid and inactive.

They eventually stumbled into a small military race. They realized an excellent chance at a new planet, and began improving relations. After another 25 years, they captured the planet. They assassinated most of the political leaders, and mostly everyone of importance, and then sent in their Enforcers.

They found the planet was better than their older planet, it was easy to navigate, and it was lush in plant and animal life. Ultimately, the military race was physically advanced and many scholars believe they could have contributed greatly to the Galaxy.


A Soklarr Warrior, as reconstructed from various pictures, logs, and skeletal remains.

Ultimately, the Soklarr's death was unknown untill several thousand years later.

The Dark began building and advancing their technologies, it was during this era of rebuilding that the most significant cultural changes happened. The Dark, plotting to build a massive empire, started devising plans and how to make themselves look good on first impression, for an easy first victory. Their current clothing mostly involved scraps and or nudity.


A Typical Dark representative, they put themselves off as a cultural race, friendly and timid, who used Manly for protection and interpreted the Manly.


The Manly, by the Dark's orders, do not speak. They and the dark attempt to make them look like a proud Military Race, but unable to pronounce any language except that which they and the Dark use.

They managed to get diplomatic relations with several races, and used riches obtained from the conquest of the Soklarr planet to 'enchance' relations.

After a while, they ran into the Herdavian empire, which was a relatively weak and new race.


A typical Herdavian diplomat / representative.

The Dark befriended them, and eventually started sending 'diplomacy squads' down on their planet. They all started visiting the important politicians at the same time, which ended up in them murdering almost everyone of importance.

They had their bombers start attacking Power plants over the planet, which were usually full of an extremely explosive substance known to Herdavians as Lofakk'tar.

Nearly everyone on the entire planet had died, and the Dark left the planet after plundering everything that's worth anything, however, one of the Herdavians managed to sneak on board...

-- The Fall and Wandering of the Dark (SPACE STAGE PART TWO)--


When they visited another planet of their 'allies', the Herdavian sneaked off-board and attempted to report the Dark's treachery.

The local race immediately realized that this made sense. The Dark had been planting soldiers on their planet, and there were reports of the Dark establishing Small spice colonies.


A local, which was a bit of a devil like creature.

The Gomblins immediately started attacking the Dark ships, and flew bombers to the Dark planet.

The Dark defense system managed to kill a few of them, though the Gomblins over powered the Darks.

The Dark fleet was ordered to destroy the Gomblin planet right before the Bombers managed to attack, ultimately, the Communications were knocked out, so the Dark Fleet completely ignored their Planet's destruction. They sent their Manly troopers onto the planet, who were able to maintain a ratio of one Manly killed for every ten hostiles. (They used a combination of cybernetics and massive weapons)

Ultimately, the Gomblins were destroyed, and the Dark were without a planet, their old one was covered in radiation and craters.

They eventually stumbled upon a new planet, however, they simply used it to rebuild their fleet. They started creating advanced star ships that emulated life back home.

The Dark became a fleet - based race, though some of them stayed on a few planets, the majority stayed in their fleet, which consisted of hundreds of ships, and grew every time they visited their old planets (The older planets are all on orders to build more star ships and assist the fleet on it's return).

The Dark still build their Fleet. They have a deadly reputation for betrayal, and over the thousands of years since the Gomblin wars, the Dark have become a truly ancient race... their fleet consists of hundreds of thousands of ships at present day, it is said that even the Grox fear the Dark Fleet, which has been nicknamed as some "The Shadows of the Sun", as survivors have reported that when they attacked, their thousands of ships blocked out the very sun.

The Dark have hundreds of planets, and their fleet is their main attack force, they all stay in one massive group, combining their shields for even stronger protection...

The Dark are still deceitful, however, they still manage to ally and betray hundreds of races, and their trades usually always involve the Dark killing the other and taking everything.

The Dark have so far been trying to enchance the entire Manly population, many of the Manly are subject to cybernetic enhancements to allow them to function as well as a typical Dark.

A recreation of the LOXUS are next, featuring a lot of forms (the Loxus' evolutionary path has branched out and created several different Loxus races.)
