Kosmosis - The Fluurp
« on: June 21, 2011, 06:28:38 pm »


The Fluurp

In Brief:

Having evolved on a low gravity world, the Fluurp have a jellyfish-like appearance; using long, strong arms they navigate the asteroid fields on their home planet's mid-atmosphere, and use their helium filled gas-bladder to keep themselves suspended in midair. After Forming huge colonies on the larger of these rocks, the Fluurp began to industrialise, and started to create a hierarchy - a class system - on these colonies. This system endured for several thousands of years, becoming stronger and more oppressive over time.
And then everything changed.
Suddenly, intellectual Fluurps began a wave of new ideals - "Equal Rights", "Power to the Workers" and "No More Classes!" After a brief, yet bloody, revolution the Fluurps united the planet under one ideal: "Equality".  
As the Fluurps took to space, they began to spread their ideas to the other races they met - and responded almost with disgust to the ideas of "Religion", "Monarchy" or even "Presidents". The Fluurps grew more and more isolationist towards other races, only negotiating with those that shared their ideals. They tried to make a fortress for themselves, where they could be free from oppression from other races, using other client races to protect their borders and give them security. Whilst not a naturally xenophobic race, the Fluurps began to resent the capitalists, the monarchs, the oppressors, and to this day continue to remain a fortress of Socialist idealism and an ironically oppressive crackdown on those that challenged the Communist Regime.

Best Korea Fluurp, Yay!   :D

Interesting how do the rocks float. Are they filled with microbes that have air bladders?

I think that could actually work, especially if in a very dense atmosphere.

Rocks would float on denser gas in a gas giant.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

And technically, a socialist state is one controlled by the workers in a democratic manner, while communism is a stateless and classless society. Ergo, "communist state" is an oxymoron and these guys are more Stalinist than anything. Don't give them ice axes!

That's one way to renew my interest in a project, I guess.

New stuff soon, folks.


EDIT: You forgot the air bladder. New content aborted.

Lawl JK, sweet picture dude.
