A Hitchhiker's guide...
« on: July 12, 2006, 03:16:58 pm »
At the suggestion of some people heres the thread where we post HHGTTG style descriptions of creatures, planets and miscellaneous stuff we all made up.

The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy has this to say on ViS: Imagine a limitless army of keenly intelligent, humourless, cycloptic slug men and youll have an idea of what the ViS are like. They were once vaguely humanoid newt-like creatures who roamed the misty algae plains of the planet ViSta, desperately looking for anything dry that they could burn for warmth. The harsh conditions and limited natural resources of the planet drove the ViS to becom obsessed with efficiency, simplicity and thrift, to the point that they spent almost 2 centuries engineering, from scratch, new bodies for themselves, bodies which didnt waste energy and chemicals on useless things like bones, or taste buds, or huge great emotional lobes in the brain.
Today, the ViS boast one of the largest space empires in the galaxy, an empire founded on the twin principals of simplicity, and stripping down every available planet for raw materials and using it to construct office buildings.
If you meet the ViS, which you invariably will because theyre everywhere, dont panic. They wont hurt you as long as your paperwork is up to date, and you arent a threat to their civilisation... and you dont have something they want... and probably some other things as well...

Sombreron

These strangely configured creatures make themselves known as the noble business man, solicitor and entrepeneur of the galaxy. In their way of living, success always comes first and they'll take as many means neccessary to achieve it. They often avoid doing the dirty work and have other, less-intelligent, less-advanced beings to it for them. But they don't always work clean when it comes to fair business. However, much of those kind of people have been taken care of thanks to the species own organized club known as the Sombreron Guild of Entrepreneurs. The guild is open to any creature of all shapes and sizes and governs all business affairs to ensure fair competition. In return for good salesmanship, a member can receive generous perks to improve their business and ensures them success. The guild is also head the Department of Commerce and Economics in the C.A.B. alliance so it does have a large amount of power over the intergalactic market. You need not fear these creatures though for they are allies to mostly every creature. If you are in need of something, the Sombreron will have it... for the right price. If they don't have it, they will find it... for the right price.

The Necromonicon

Now classified as extinct, these large armored bi-pedal beings caused a war which cost the lives of hundreds of millions of CAB and OTHER members. Hailing from a lava world on the edge of the Gamma quadrant, they destroyed many worlds, eradicated many species, and were only destoyed themselves by their sun exploding when it collided with their own super-weapon, dubbed the Supernova Generator. They were affiliated with Nemesis the rogue Wexxian and Zhzskkkh the Exile xx. Rumors remain of tribes of the creatures still inhabiting small planets, and Fuffle military experiments involving cloning Necromonicon embryos, but there is no hard evidence to back up either story.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to:  Nauceans

The Nauceans are your typical galactic super power, pseudo-mandibles, floots, oral tentacles ... er maybe not, but they are too smart for their own good. Their culture and technology is seen through out many other species, from Nanotech, to Turnabegga Ale to Illegal Hybrid Chimeras, Lava Lamps. Like any galactic super power they poke their pseudo-mandibles into other species business, abducting cows, anal probes, manipulating time, blowing up other species fleets by "accident", parking their Mothersphere in orbit without paying the orbiting fee, you know they stuff everyone hates but cannot do anything about, because if they did no one would get any more Naucean backrubs anymore. Love them or hate them Nauceans are just a part of the Galaxy like planets, stars, black holes, spam, you get the idea.

We should totally write a song and make a music video out of it with our creatures in it.

The Rinthuu
The Rinthuu are a collection of some of the finest and brightest minds from our galaxy, that's there story and they're sticking too it. Any rumours about individual Rinthuu impersonating local gods of primitive alien worlds for their own amusement are just rumours, they say that their technology looking like magic is just a coincidence. Also the fact that they routinely use dead aliens as soldiers using strange technology is just a simple case of them using, at least what they consider to be, a "wasted resource" we have nothing to fear from them and in fact we welcome our newly awakened allies!
- Official OTHER statement

The Rinthuu are old, older than you can possibly imagine, no even older than that. They lurk in the shadows of the stars biding their time and waiting for the next great galactic battle, the mere mention of their name inspires all who hear it into a sense of melodrama. No one knows why the rinthuu where dormant for so long and no one really wants to ask, in case they get an answer thats even worse than the question.

The Wexxians

Until resent time the robotic race called the Wexxians where an active in the galaxy. They where one of the few robotic species ever to have "Naturally" evolved, and where the only ever species of robots whose race consisted nearly entirely if hippies.
The Wexxians disappeared mysteriously after the Necromonicon war, and have not been heard from since. Various attempts have been made to restore the Wexxians, most notably by the xx, but historical sources indicates that the Wexxians simply faded away no mater what the Alliances did for them!
The Wexxians are most known for: Being HIPPIES, being one of the founding members of the CAB, being notoriously unlucky in war, terraforming Azuron, now a important part of the galactic infrastructure, and to have played a key part in the Necromonicon war, before disappearing completely after the destruction of the Originator station at Abbadon.
I resent development; experts have tried classifying the Wexxians as a Precursor species, but the head of the comity appointed to discus the issue concluded that: "It would be an insult to all the forrunner races, if these HIPPIES where to be called Precursors!"

(OOC: This is from the time around the Arcadia mission!)
