Should the Wexxians go out with a “Goodbye friends” RP, or should they just fade from focus of galactic politics.

Bye Robots… we got it covered while you guys are away! Bon Voyage. (RP)
No way… an inactive Wexxian is still better than no Wexxian at all. (No RP)

I love the picture! Keep up the good work! Were you inspired by Dr. Manhattan's Mars palace in The Watchmen? I love it.
Nope, I based it more on 'New Earth' from the episode of Dr Who of that name  :P

\\Greetings Eodians you are as all people welcome on Azuron, but we are puzzled; why do you think that the planet is artificial? the planet is as old as the solar system, we just "bootstrapped" it to life .

The Wexxians may be artificial but it is not our fault, this is how we "evolved"!

Apologies, we do not comprehend your meaning. If the planet is indeed a naturalistic yet lifeless creation, how have you engineered it to produce life? How has something artificial been produced on something naturally created? This is technology beyond our science and we fail to understand it.

Please do not take offense at our description of your forms, our language is often considered blunt by those that have little knowledge of our culture. We mean no harm by our words, we merely see all things as an opportunity to learn about the cosmos, other lifeforms being no different.

//Strange that you find the concept hard to grasp... The planet was initially barren and lifeless, gasses were introduced to build an atmosphere, microorganisms to make the planet habitable to complex life, and finally selected species were genetically tweaked and disseminated on the planet surface. For all intents and purposes the planet is natural.
However, if you wish to find out about engineering a planet from scratch I suggest you contact the Nauceans.//

The current universal paradigm which our ship holds, philosophically, is one in which there is a basic opposition between that which is created artificially and that which forms naturally. This is a joyous day. We have discovered new information about the universe, discovered that our model is false, necessitating a new, more truthful contemplation.

Our thanks to those who aid us in our contemplations.

'From the waters of falsehood we emerge onto the shore of truth'.

///From: Scipiii of The Three, Head of The Dhulam Church To: The Wexxians

Dear Wexxians, it has coem to my attention that you recently asked several Dhulami Priests in The Temple of Serenity, whether Wexxians will ascend with the Return. I think this shows an open mind to our beliefs, and we inquire as to if you would like to join our faith, or if any of your number would like to?

We are not a very religious people sorry, but some may try to ascend even though this "all powerfull" stuff is not our thing.   ;)

Inside the Eodian philosophy craft, the communication engineers huddled in the cramped transmission deck, surrounded by complicated machinery. They listened carefully to the transmissions they had been eavesdropping on. They repeated them, rewound them at certain points, fed them through a number of translation filters to determine syntax and context, eventually coming up with a working translation.

Chikittit read the mesage as it was brought to him on a holo-plate. He occasionally manipulated a stylus across the surface of the hologramatic 'notebook', sliding the words up and down as he read them thoughtfully.

'You are sure the translation is correct?'

'Yes my Elder, we ran it through the translator systems a number of times and with various subroutines in place. We came up with the three possible translations we have given you. The wording in them has slight variation, but the meaning and context remains the same.'

Chikittit chittered to himself nervously. 'It would appear we have a... religion.' The assembled engineers and philosophers chittered with distaste. 'Not only that, but a fundamentalist and absolutist philosophy as well.'

'Closed minds, my elder?' The young philosopher rubbed his manipulators together, a sure sign of discomfort.

'I fear so. A closed mind is a dangerous thing for us, especially when supernaturalism is involved... We must keep a close eye on these... 'Auyuelcliads'. Although their faith may be safe now, it may pose a danger to us in the future.' Chikittit gestures to the engineers assembled before him. 'You are to covertly keep record of all relevant transmissions you encounter, and I want intelligence gathered about the temple on the surface. Only through knowledge may we ensure our safety.'

The engineers and philosophers bowed their heads and began to scuttle backwards from the bridge:

'Yes, my Elder...'

OOC: The Auyuelcliads are a warrior race, which a large amount of allies .Moniter THAT ;).

OOh i have an enemy.

OOC: I'm sure we will.  :P

// Chikittit looked at the intelligence read-outs carefully. As he slid his stylus up and down a number of charts appeared on his Holo-plate, amongst the pages of text. They showed the Auyuelcliads in the centre, surrounded by a network of other species.

'This is not good... it appears that they, unlike us, are naturally a warrior species. That, combined with their closed minds and supernaturalist faith, may make them a dangerous presence indeed.'

'We have been gathering information on the temple from a number of other species that are colonising the surface. It's influence is growing, and I fear that with time it shall become a powerful and overwhelming force on the planet, ending the Wexxians' noble goals of openess and autonomy of the colonists.' The engineer nervously felt the crescent of engraved shell that he wore like a necklace. It was a symbol that showed he belonged to a certain sect of philosophers and had been raised with them since his birth. The prospect of facing an absolutist faith filled him with fear. 'I suggest we make our excuses to our Wexxian hosts and jump out of the system as soon as possible, my Elder.'

Chikittit continued to read the intelligence report with the thoughtful sound of his prime mandibles rubbing together. 'No.' The other Eodu chittered with surprise. 'The days in which we ran at the first sign of antagonism are gone now. There are other species on the surface who are our friends. I will not see them left to fend for themselves against the closed minds.'

'So what shall we do, my Elder? If we enter into antagonism with them it could end in violence. We simply could not win such a conflict, we are not warriors and the ship does not even have combat capability!'

Chikittit buzzed to himself in thought for a moment, then turned to one of the communication engineers. 'I want you to send a message to the Wexxian administrators. Say that we respectfully ask for permission to set up our own colony on the planet, having reconsidered our initial position. We desire to create a 'Great Forum' where the colonists of Azuron may freely debate, discuss opinions, excercise free speech and conduct trade agreements.'

The other Eodu chittered in understanding.

'If the Auyuelcliads will have their temple of closed minds, then we shall provide a place for ideas to be questioned and debated. Thus, the threat is neutralised peacefully. Set to your tasks at once'

'Yes my Elder...'

Message to Artist Rewel from the Wexxians:

\\ Wellcome beloved friends, you are welcome to land on any planet under our influence, we hope however that you will respect our wises and not land on Azurons ice moon Companion, we fear any landing on it will result in scaring its near perfect surface.\\

Message to Eodu Elders:
\\Greetings oh noble and wise beings. We Wexxians have heard about your species planing to make your own colony on Azuron with a great Forum.

We think thats a splendid idea, there is plenty of room in Indigo city for any colony type along with the forrum. may we also humbely suggest that you make a Academy of philosophy in the central part of the city.
we hope that your species will flourish and prosper on Azuron.\\
