Oh, Omega, what did the Race ever do to you?   ;D ;)

I wonder how they'd react to the Kratair, a race of lizards who are on the other side of the progressiveness spectrum...

No, the real question is how would they react if they met the Wexxians, Combine, Photos, Nameless, and all the other powerful races.

Now that I think about it, it seems there are more military/technological/whatever superior races than "regular" ones...

It'be fun to see the Race invading Beyon, having sent a probe to the planet back when it was wilderness, not anticipating what it would look like now.

Straha would soon see the virtue of Atvar's ways.   :d :p

GW, the Kratair were powerful. Once upon a time.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

I don't know much about the older races aside from the Nauceans and a bit of the Wexxians. The only races I know best is the ones currently active and even then, its not much.

And in other news, there appears to be a lull in activity in the Spore RP section...

Well, I'd like to finish it up, but unfortunately my races aren't in any of the other RPs so I am forced to wait.

Also, I'm thinking of making a "official" name for my impactors. What do you think fits more: Kinetic Energy Weapons or Kinetic Kill Weapons? I prefer KEWs, but I need another person's opinion.

Kinetic Kill sounds more slang-ish, I'd go with Kinetic Energy Impactors.

A Kinetic Energy Weapon is called a gun or a sling. Just gonna put that out there.

Not exactly. A Kinetic Energy Weapon is any weapon that deals damage via kinetic energy transmission impact.
Or in short, it doesn't explode.

I've been thinking about getting back into the Spore RPs, though I'm not sure where to start anymore.

I can understand you not being very aware of the Kratair, as they were before your time and not quite as profilic as the big Golden Age races like the Nauceans, Wexxians and Torpals.  Still, they were one of the, if not the, most powerful races in the Silver Age.

I looked at the Nauceans because thats where basically people get their inspiration from, I looked at the old Wexxians a bit after they came back, Torpals, I think they're aggressive. All the races between that and those currently active now I have no idea.

An idea just occurred to me: people post detailed inormation about their races, with history that can lead anywhere up until space travel to discourage godmodding (i.e., no saying that your race has control of multiple star systems or antimatter weaponry). Then, an experienced and skilled writer on the forum makes stories about the races interacting with one another, taking input from the forum members along the way. It could make for less interactive but very different stories. I'm not saying that I want this style replacing the way we RP, I'm just saying that the thought just came into my head and I wanted to share it.

you seem to be looking at power as if this is a competitive game. I thought it was more story oriented, so it really shouldnt matter how 'strong' your civilization is.

I say this with having two races, both underpowered compared to most on here.
