The Auyuelcliads, of the UAR
« on: April 13, 2006, 08:52:45 am »
The Auyuelcliads. Prounced: Ar-you-el-clee-ads
The Auyuelcliads live on a desert world in a galaxy far far away.They are a rough 2 meters tall, and have a large baise torso, situated on a mass off tentacle-like limbs that they use to drag themselves along. Thier faces are long, snout like with long serrated tusks, about 30cm in lenght. They have holes in thier head which they use to hear, and a vast uni-nostril (they aren't coke-ads) which they use to smell with. Thier eyesight is thier greatest sense, and they have large, slitted eyes with brilliant night-vision. They see in a brilliant array of colours, which humans and other lesser races have no concept of. Thier vast nostril is also used to inhale steam form the constant evaporation of water on thier home planet Banaqaq, whihc is how they sustain life. They feed on Serelites, small gazelle like creature with a system of rootlike hairs used to absorb water form the ground.

They are a militaristic race, but care nothing for material possessions. They have no concept of currency, as everything is shared with the others in the group. "Ownership"and "Possession" have no meaning to the The Auyuelcliads. Honour and imagination are seen as the key virtues of Auyuelcliad society. Auyuelcliad culture is vibrant and exciting, and they use street theatre and word-of-mouth to keep history alive, and regard writing things down as sacrelige. The Auyuelcliads be in gods known as the Unspoken, but it is forbidden to speak of the Unspoken to non-Auyuelcliads, so little is known. They are ruled by a council of 3 men, currently Jabai, Buda'an and Scipii known as "The Three". Each one of the 3 has a special duty, one is the head of the economic advisor, one is commander of the armies and fleets and one is the head of the Auyuelcliad church. Women are forbidden in "The Three".

They are a space-faring race, and believe bring the word of The Unspoken to other planets is sacred duty.

Cross-Breeding is outlawed by Maunaq's Law, Which States:
Any Interferance or meddling with  any non-sapient beings is Outlawed, No matter how benign or needed.Aggression is tolerated if in the interest of The Auyuelcliad Empire.

The Auyuelcliads believe that War is nessacary, and expanding the terriotries of The Auyuelcliads is essential. They do however think Peace is nessacary with other powerfull and deserving races, and so, with the encouragment of several other races, Joined the FPPUP( The Federation For The Protection And Preservation Of Universal Peace), Which promotes peace between all sapient beings, by suggesting means other than violence. It has no army and is largely regarded as "Controlled" by major powers.

They Fight using thier large fists to pummel thier foes, or using staffs. Thier tanks are composed of vats metalic triangles, with large pincers used to draw thier foes close and incinerate them with the flamethrower.

Thier language is phonetic (as they dislike writing), and has a deep, guttural sound to it.
Eg: (written phonetically) Bakhari, Numar, Bast Carnarak Tupai?
Lit. Translation :Friend/sibling,I ask, your mother: where does she sleep?
In english: Where do you come from?

Banaqaq:


 Banaqaq is a small desert planet, that has no bodies of water whatsoever. The various "nations" from before "The Three" used the mountains as borders. The old nations were Imperia, Murandier, Moulon, Nuabla, Castan, Khalficii , Jorani and Tasman. they united many years ago, but occasional riots break out over racism. Banaqaq orbist the son called Tupai Duba'an, which means "Fire Mother". Banaqaq is very close to its Sun, and is and understandably hot planet. The Other planets in its solar system are : Topai Moulon (Dark Father), Jarek Topai (Cold Father), Mastar Topai (Old Father)Dhulami Topai (True Father) and Maunaq (named in honor of a famous Auyuelcliad who helped unify Banaqaq).Banaqaq's moons are Kinta Jorn (Stone Sister) and Baertiak ("Sweet Poison").

All Planets and Moons in the Solar System have been colonised, and the gaze of the Auyuelcliads has started to turn beyond their Solar System into the Galaxy.

The Largest cities in Banaqaq are Cair Dolmek and Tamsantir. Cair Dolmek is where "The Three" are housed in thier palace.

Architechture: The Auyuelcliads  have cube-like houses, with large domes on top. Thye are sand coloured and marked in red paint. Thier other buildings are generally similar, but will have towers on top, signifying Quality (a poor slum-like bar will have a small tower, a palace a large one).

Agriculture: The Auyuelcliads plant a bulb-plant,but this has to be done in caves or inside, where the water is avaliable in the ground.These are called "Saradantir", and the buildings "Kantu Saradantir".

Trade: The Auyuelcliads  have little interest in material goods, and trade little. They give away small clay statues which they are famous for to other races. These are meticulously painted and take many days to make. They only give these to Guarakka-Su- "Honoured Ones".

Mating: ( Well, when a Mummy Auyuelcliad and a Daddy Auyuelcliad love each other very much...) Auyuelcliads mate in much the same way as Humans, and females (who lack tusks) will find large tusks attractive in a male.

Religion: Although we know little of "The Unspoken", the gods of the Auyuelcliads, we know something of their Dogma. They believe all life-forms are linked to Jaabanii Grakhu "The Source of All". They believe people are all tuned in to Jaabanii Grakhu, in varying degrees. This is where ideas come form, apprently, and how people know how people are feeling.
Communion with Jaabanii Grakhu is the way to englightenment, through a set of meditations known as Quin Da' Krit. This belief is know as Dhulam, "Truth".

Very nice, good job  :).

too bad you can't draw :(, try doing simple drawings, maybe you would make it.

Can you explain more about their physique? Skeleton, body shape, skin and etc... I would make it better to Imagen (because of the lack of pictures).

In Depth Auyuelcliad:
The Auyuelcliad Skeleton i based around a central rib cage, which is shaped like a dome, the bottom of which is the boneless-tenctacel area. The Auyuelccliads have several spines, coming from 4 diiffrent points of the dome to hold up the skull and the tusks. The Tusks protrude form the base of the mouth. The have two muscular arms, complete with retractable claws. Auyuelcliads are very resistant to poisons and disease, as they have a very powerfull digestive acid, capable of dissolving rocks. Thier ears are tufted, with fur to protect them from sandstorms. Thier skin is thick and grey, and maybe be covered in Red Ochre markings to signify occupation or marital status. they use their base of tentacles to pull the themsleves along, and their long uni-nosrtil nose to breathe in steam which condenses in teh back of thier throat. They can not drink water like humans, and always boil water when ingesting it in space or other planets where the water isnt constantly evaporating.Thier eyes are always red, and are covered in a thin viel of skin to protect them.

Auyuelcliads live for around 50 or 60 Banaqaq years. (One Banaqaq year is 142.638% of an Earth year.) They Reach sexual maturity age 9-11 and old age is around 45.

Fashion:Auyuelcliads seldom wear clothes, but when they do they wear brown, white or black habits over thier torso (like the "Hoodie" of a Human Heathen), these are usualy covered in red ochre markings dictating  occupation, marital status and Name. They wear nothing over thier tentacles. A Auyuelcliad will carry with him his Niereli( a bowl for boiling water in when exploring other planers or caves on Banaqaq), his Cupalin ( a medallion created by thier parents) and his Hurrukai Battle Staff. Hurrukai Battle Staffs can be folded down for easy storage. These days, he is also likely to carry a kind of gun, generally a Repxor or a Xorentz (makes of guns on Banaaqaq). Auyuelcliadic Missionaries will also carry a Hupagrak Dhulam (Sign Of Dhulam) which is shaped like 2 circles next to a cresent moon.

Some Auyuelcliads have, however, abandoned a great deal of thier beliefs, It is a common thing for Auyuelcliads to now buy and sell goods, which is against Dhulam and Auyuelcliad life. This was brought on by interaction with other races, and changes  within the Dhulam Church. Orthodox Dhulami aren't as widespread as Henetists, and thie rmain concerntration os on Banaqaq. The Henethists have very few worshippers on Banaqaq, but many on colonies.Henethists are a lot more adaptive to change, and the various colonies bring wealth from trade. Orthodox Dhulam is also seen, by some, to be not Orthodox enough, as it has changed Doctrine in order to allow Auyuelcliad trade. Auyuelcliads who think these have set up evangestical commnues with strict Dhulami rules. Orthodox Dhulami is slowly dying out, while Henethist is expanding hugely, by allowing Non-Auyuelcliads into its church, This is regarded as Heresy by the xenophobic Orthodox Church.
In a way, The Henethists are embracing the new world, the Orthodox are so-so and the Evangelists are actively seeking the end of change.
