THE ARKIBALS OF SANKASH

now updated with C.A.S, (creature attribute system)

OVERVIEW:
The Arkibal evolved on a planet called Sankash they grow trough many ages for millions of years until finally achieving space travel and the mastery of traveling "the beyond" they now occupy an empire over 10 galactic systems, and 53 planets encompassing in an area of space about 500 light years across.

An Arikibal.


DESCRIPTION:

Physical characteristics: A round upper body tapered into many dexterous tentacles with one protruding muscled leg with a hoofed foot, and two arms coming out of its body with hands at the end (one thumb and two fingers each) coated with thick green slime sweat/excrement, witch is also a mild Nuro toxin used for killing small animals (about rat size)
Name: Arkibal
Locomotion: tripedal
Life expectancy: 120-150 years.
Aging: maturity: 20 years, elder: 110 years
Reproduction: live young, pregnancy 11 months, reproductive 17 years.
Size: 2 - 2.5 meters
Weight: 70-100kg
Diet: Omnivorous
Social Structure: Small family group in a single household (typical: mother, father 1-3 children, although there are many different ways they live in, see later) Many small groups of families bunched into a city/town area or a single one as a sort of village.

HOME PLANET/SOLAR SYSTEM/EMPIRE
Sankash is a world covered in rivers and with many freshwater oceans, the oceans make up about 40% of the water mass on the planet while the rivers  make up about 60%. The ratio between land and sea is Land 36%
Sea 64%. Around the poles the rivers and streams have frozen creating the famous "lace glaciers of Sankash"
at the equator a vast marsh stretches across the land that steams during the day, The Arkibals inhabit the areas around the poles and temprate areas and away from the equators. The 5 nations of the arkibals are: Gaalyina (20 islands), Sormee(12 islands), Deraisy(18 islands), Bauler(21 islands), and Seradiah(14 islands) each one of these is a separate land mass and its associated islands. There are also 3 more uninhabited continents around the equator called Gerian, Frynaser, and Basehil. It also has 2 moons called Requar (a desert moon) and Tupiluia (a rocky moon) Tupiluia is about the size of our moon but Requar is about 1 and a 1/2 times its size.

Sankash is second from the sun and just infront of the first astroid belt, the other planet in front of it is Huntari, a planet thats entire crust has melted leaving a surface of bubbling lava, the other 3 planets in the solar system are Derinai a giant rock ball in between the first and secont asteroid belts and Seritai and Gaerina the two gas giants outside of the second astroid belt of witch Seritai has rings and Gaerina has 7 moons called
Farbau, Gertim, Boustrian, Sernutian, Anbiratia, Frech and Yinsder. The star of the solar system is called Abry.

The ten galactic systems of the empire are named after there main suns and are:Rybros system ( 5 planets), Colynher system (7 planets), Geraki system(8 planets) , Huns system(6 planets), Kilandani system(5 planets), Terts system(3 planets), Kai system (3 planets), Derina system(5 planets), Baldsey system(4 planets) and finally The Abry system (7 planets).  and the other suns are nubered after that such as (Abry #2, Abry #3 ect.) only solar systems with inhabited planets are named.

HISTORY OF THE ARKIBALS

AoY (Arkibal origins year)- 1756: the Arkibals evolve into there current form
AoY 0: The Arkibals form the form the first loose tribes in the northern hemisphere, on Gaalyina, near the pole, and discover fire.
AoY 736: The Arkibals float over to anouther two continents on ice burgs floating in the sea, also the first forms of arkibal lanquage are made.
AoY 881-910: The Arkibals on Gaalyina buid more complex huts and villages but still have very primitive technology, on Sormee they create carts and boats and set of to find there lost bretherine across the sea, and on Deraisy  the Arkibals form religion and the first real art.
AoY 1087: The arkibals first recognise nations and have three at this time: Gaalyina, Sormee and Deraisy and form a common lanquage.
AoY 1123-1142: The War of The three nations, after a disagreement over religion between the industrious Sormee and the religious Deraisy, a war breaks out on the Gaalyina continent and the Gaalynians fought and protected themselves from inside there great fortress cities, the war lasted for niteen years and it looked grim for the Deraisy nation as the supperior arms of the Sormee prevailed over there fanciful shamans, and misplaced trust in false gods. When the Gaalyinians managed to force The Sormee and Deraisy apart across there lands it sent ambassadors to each nations forces  requesting peace, The two forces wernt going to argue over it, the Gaalyian forces were much stronger due to the intense fightibetween the other two bnations, so the treety was signed and the two nations agreed to co-operate, although religion was abolished Deraisyns are still to this day conbsidered the most cultured of Arkibals.
AoY 1143-1249: The march of the arkibals technology increases rapidly and soon stem powered ships are exploring the equator and southern hemisphere.
AoY 1250: The grand colinisation, a stem powered medieval age takes over the entire planet for several hundred years until....
AoY 1404-1505: The Half war, The two continents of the soutern hemisphere unite under one ruler and take it upon themselves to storm the Gaalyian nation but meet heavier resistance at the capital city of Gertimash than they expected and are left in a stalemate with Gaalyina, a group of traders coming from Somree, noticed the fighting and one man made it to Somree alive he warned the other nations of the maruding souythern armeis and they sent forces and as a hole they crushed the rebelion and united under one flag of Sankash
AoY 1505-1609: ionto the Modern age The arkibals reach the modern age and colinise there two moons an so begins, the arkibal empire years
AeY (arkibal empire year) 0: the colonisation of the moons
AeY 12: the Arkibals need more room, so they move outside of there solar system after developing new hyperdrive tchnology with zero point energy, and set out in the grweat fleets and complete the first galactic colonisation of two systems: Baldsey and Derina.
AeY 50: the founding of the great council, the great rulling council is formed to oversee the empire
AeY 125: the second phase war: as the arkibals moved deeper into intergalactic space, they met a hostile race of space-farers, they tried to communicate with them but were fired on and boarded, the Arkibal fleet won a narrow victory losing 50 of the 60 lightly armed colonisation ships, the few marines on board the fleet fought the aliens with valour, but they were few and the enemy were many it was on-board the capital ship of Admiral Gesryill that they were repulsed, and many of the ships were evacuated with the aliens still on board and destroyedby bombardment, the ships retured crammed with men, the grand millitary fleet was sent into the system and with in a few months they had purged the system of the alein threat and colonised it naming it Kai, the other two came easily and were named Terts and Kilandani
AeY 293-356: the age of technology: the technology of the empire was increasing and over 500 diffrent species had been brought into the empire under promise of better lives, and the government of each was approaced by an abbasodor and brought under the arkibals wings. with this new technology and booming population they moved out to colinise the two largest systems yet, Huns and Garaki.
Aey 361-now: Joining of the galactic senate, the arkibals joined the senate and found peace among the many other spae faring races of the galaxy.
Aey 365: the great governer is replaced by the new emperor after the great storming of the palace
Aey 371: the expansion takes the Arkibals into 2 new systems, Rybros, and Colynher.
Aey 390-391: the axis-alliance war, the arkibals assisted the grand union in this great historic war against the alliance of protectors, they were pined on  vii at the start of the expansion, and would soon be returning home to escaspe the dictatorship uniting the other races together.
Aey 391: after the war the Arkibals moved onto expansion into three new syatems these were contested until Aey 395

ARKIBAL LANGUAGE

The Alphabet:

this is the Arkibal alphabet, this is all that reamins constant trough Arkibal lanquage, it differs in prnunciation from place to place, spelling from planet to planet, the whole lanquage is influenced and changed by the new races they meet, time in other systems and has many different vraibles.

ARKIBAL CULTURE AND POLITICS

Arkibals dont have religion and haven't done since the first war, (see history), but they are a very cultured race they build huge statues at the centre of every city, usually with the city government hall being at the base, many great artists of the galaxy come from  the Arkibal empire, there is a common practice of culture taught to the children troughout the empire. The hirachy of the Arkibal empire is headed by tghe great governor, he has passed through the ranks and proven himself in many fields every 100 years, a new govenor is elected to rule the empire, out of five candidates, also they have a great council witch is full of every diplomat in the empire, they don't all go to the same planet though unless it is something very urgent and each planet has its governer and so does every system, it is from the planets diplomats that every planetary governer is chosen it is from every planetery governer in that system that the system governer is chosen and from every system governer that the great governer is chosen.

ARKIBAL ECOMOMY AND TECHNOLOGY

The Arkibals have a strong economy and have two main exports mineral rocks and space craft, they also export counless other things and have fantasic trade with other empires since they joined the galactic senate, 98% of the arkibal population lives above middle class the population is also constantly growing at a high rate due to the technology to prolong life into infinity through regular care and maintanence of the treatment. Thus the Arkibals are expanding into space constructing new planets and forming new systems all the time. Arkibal technology is advanced into the unbilovable they may be only a small empire now but the technology they have is only comprihendable to that of the far greater races of the galaxy such as the Nauceans or the ViS, mastering the ability to do just about anything, there minds are stretching into the reaches of inter universal travel but they do not wish to travel there they wish to harness the power of that unverse entirely to drive there race forward while leaving this world completely unaffected exept by the wake of their expansion.

ARKIBAL MILITARY
The Arkibal's have an elite military, they dont use robots to do their fighting, they do it themselves, they don't think A.I is a good idea, although they have the technological capacity to easily accomplish it, they have had some nasty incidents with crazy killing bots running through city streets shredding up the local populace so since these incidents A.I has been banned execpt for recreational home use, the military uses its best soldiers as its tactical commanders believing the most hardened vetrans know what combat works best, they use many vehicles and war machines, and even the infantry fight in hevily modified battle suits usually up to 3 meters tall but some regiments have been known to employ suits up to 5 meters in hight, the military is fond of units of light tanks and mega walkers, although alot of Arkibal fighting is done from space, through bombardments and blockades, an Arkibal invasion isn't something to look forward too.

A DISCRIPTION OF ARKIBALS TODAY
The arkibal race is embeded into Galactic politics at this current time, with an empire to be proud of, modest in a way it is mighty in others. The empire they control is united under a single flag of common prosperity, and with this lies hope in the future of their race. The home planet of Sankash is indeed a mighty one it's fresh flowing rivers spread across its surface and through it's cities, through the forests and trees that flood the world of the Arkibals, The capital city of Sankash- Yorina-bahk is the hub of the empire, it's towering trees reach up into the skys as the bustling of the city goes on around it, the Arkibal races cities are situated in the vast forests with raised platforms and gangways leading up into the trees, and with the many rivers flowing below and the subterrainian industries even further below that. This is the ideal of the Arkibal Empire, living amongst the natural surroundings of there homeworld in a modern technological society. But war plaques the Empire on its foremost borders with lesser and major races alike and it is the military of the arkibals, who march to war against the Empires enemys with courage and determination to defeat them, and potect the ideals of the Arkibal Empire.

I'm currently trying to get a planet picture and am thinking long and hard about the history section I'm going to do, open to most suggestions.

like the race. But on the hover car pic, you should just fill in the back with a backround. It was a little confusing at first.

Im not sure when Kangor's revenge will be over, it could take a while though.
