Zrithig and the Nilobites
« on: May 21, 2006, 06:59:58 pm »
During the Age of Genetics, on planet Trilopod, the Trilopods experimented with biological weapons. Their warfare was advanced as were their enraged minds. The Trilopods would never accept a drawback, they had to exterminate something completely before they would feel satisfied. Eventually this had let to their extinction.

During this mentioned age there was a group of Trilopod Scientists working on a special parasite that would make the Western Nations mindless drones. This parasite was called the Zrithig-1 as it was the first experiment that worked with the alien parasitical of the family Zrithili. The Zrithili were feared among the system because they made their hosts into mindless drones. The experiments should alter the parasite so the hosts would listen to the Eastern Nations word. However, it turned out completely different. The parasites developed some sort of sapience. All of them were connected telepathically so as they were brought upon the Western Nation their Intelligence grew immensly. Soon Trilopod was completely conquered by the Zrithigs, that included the animals and plants.

The Zrithig's first plan was to destroy the planet's atmosphere, and reform it with parasitical spores. This process would a) make the planet completely resistant to changes of temperature (this would later help as they moved the entire planet like a spaceship) b) anyone who would enter the atmosphere would be infected by the parasite, thus increasign the brainpower of the Zrithig. They also build some ships filled with spores of Zrithig to send them to other planets. The four spaceships that were send into four different directions were called Apollos, or the messengers of god.

The Zrithig felt happy about their power, at first. But as they checked the databases of their hosts, the Trilopods, they noticed many green planets that inhabbited some kind of life. As every living form would add to the gigantic calculating brain of the telepathic Zrithig they soon send their spore ships into those planets. Soon the entire Trilopodian starsystem was completely taken over by the parasitic being and the brainpower was equal to an advanced A.I. Not their logic, however. Their instincts were sometimes the ones of prey then sometimes of a predator. One instinct, however, stayed constant. The trilopodian warhonour would be imprinted in the Parasite, as the first hosts were Trilopidans. This warhonour made the parasite powerhungry, and unable to accept defeat. Also they would not accept drawbacks, they would wipe them out regardless.

Lovely creature... ;D

Organic Superintelligence. So the technology of the Trilopods was mainly organic based?

This is interesting. :)

Yes the irony is that the strongest weapon they created would eventually destroy them. And their spaceships and even their computers were mainly organic, hence, the Zrithig kinda had it easy taking over the planet

The Zrithig are rather unconcerned at this attempt of attack. The Zrithig after all know no fear, they communicate with the Ender through biotelepathic-machinery:
Greetings, I believe you underestimate the Wrath of the Zrithig. However, your attempt astonishes us and we would like to discuss this more intensly. Instead of your puny attempts of our race's destruction you should try to understand the greatness of intelligence we have created. WE ARE THE ZRITHIG, WE ARE THE LIVING CALCULUS.

Your master seems intelligent. So do you. We will accept our legion under one condition, we want to fuse with you. We want to share your perception with our great body of intellect. If you are willing to give us one of yours we will be willing to give you any technology or gadget that we can provide you. Tell your master that we honour him. Also tell him that ships of our youngest, and strongest spores are travelling to the systems inhabbited by the many creatures.
Honorfully,
The Zrithig Eyes

I thank you for your specimen, Ender. Soon we will hold much more in our hands, oh great one. Right now my smartest pieces are observing the Ender we have here. He has been infected with our spores. He is one of us now, but we are yet to observe his abilities completely. Feel free to ask for anything now, as we are allies. We can provide you with great biological weapons, and also our computation is rather advanced.
Honorfully,
The Zrithig Eyes

As they finally understood the Abilities of the Ender/Zrithig they were amazed at the power they had now. If they cloned this particular exemplar and then genetically enhance him, he would be a running spore factory. However, problems with one of the ships on a very radioactive planet caused the Zrithig to rethink their strategies at first. Their attacks, so far, had been bold and daring, therefore rather uneffective. They would have to slowly, and secretly take over planets as their technology was yet weak. Also some enemies were of a non-organic base, so they would have to find something to defeat those.

The Zrithig have cloned the Ender and have now a small army of that harsh creature. In the meantime they also created a couple of smaller, faster ships. The new class called Bioflourence-1 has a new camouflage technique inbred. The ships does not give any sounds nor heat off. Also its colouration is black, like the space. The new ship is filled with troopers (already bred Trilopidan-Zrithig and with many spores). The new ships are specifically designed for one planet.

Duh, sorry to sound stupid but what do they look like? A picture would be nice... even a line drawing.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The Zrithig are not only obsessed with taking over living organisms. They have a strange curiosity for the principles of monkeys with guns. This need is from the Trilopod civilization who were obsessed with such arena fights. The Zrithig, as they root from the Trilopod mindset, have the same lust but they expressed it rather differently. Their newest project was on planet Zil. Planet Zil, an arctic planet, is inhabbited by many different predators and to a sentinent race known as Nilobites. The Nilobites are basically upwalking, hairry, carnivourous Rhinos. They have manipulator hands like humans, just alot thicker, but they can also charge like normal rhinos. Now the societies of the Nilobites are very violent and harsh. They have clans with different ranks similar to the Norse way. They have a broad religion that is all about different gods of great might that created the world out of an iceblock. The gods are mysterious and change their use depending on situation. This religion supports wars, and sacrifice. Often different civilizations go to war with each other just to have war. Its a holy circle.

The Zrithig's project or experiment was designed to test the clans' reactions on the introduction of advanced weaponry and machines brought by "messengers from the sky". They started on a Northern tribe known as the Zihalots. They gave them simple Phasers that can destroy a good bit of material. They also gave them the secret to phaser stones by simply putting a fusion powered phaserstone generator. Soon the Zihalots produced phaser based Swords, axes, and "bows" with specific designs and runes of holy matter. The Zrithig gave the technology to the other tribes too and soon they developed their own designs as well. What happened is that the tribes remained tribal and religious but became extremely powerful warriors.

The first phase of the Zrithig Project was succesful.

The second phase on planet Zil was the introduction of spacefaring. The tribes, after they have held holy battles, that involved the "Giantfire Weapons" and "Ghost Armours", they designed a new belief system on the new developments. The "Ufi" is a holy runeblock that explains the story of how the "Astro Giants" came and brought the "Giantfire" to the Nilobites. The "Ufi" was just full with different mythology that hadnt actually happened but was interpretted that way. This fact made the Zrithig realize that they would be able to shape this entire race's history. They soon came down again and gave them CNBinterfaces (Computers that control nanobots to construct spaceships) with an easy system. They taught it to them (the interface was also self explanatory) and then watched with interesst. The nanobots, controlled by Religous Clanphilosophists with no spaceship knowledge at all, created a strangely formed spaceship. It had all the necessary funtions in it (as the interface calculated that automatically). The Ship was called Rosetta. Rosetta became the holy vessel of punishment. Inside of the spaceship there was a holodeck that simulated their homeland and then there was a control room. The Nilobites were told to train just the best of the best to become pilots of a lifetime. They also told them that the pilots would be the most important and holiest of all priests protected by the Silverguards. Only the worthiest berzerkers could become Silverguards (they are called Silverguards because of the silvercoloured phasers they wear). Soon the nilobites would spacetravel to punish different planets for inhabbiting evil abominations (basically all non-Nilobite Sapients).
