In the war, roughly 80% of the planet's surface and it's life was irreparably destroyed because Grand Magistrate Keatus decided to set it (the planet, not the life) on fire. this was accomplished throught the use of airships and a liberal amout of napalm pouring down from them.


on a related note, Graid would taste like salmon

Considering the topic of the previous paragraph, it's not unrelated at all.   :P

unlike many other species, the Graid are not close to sapient at birth, and have the brain capacity of a particuraly savy trout. it is not till almost five thousand years before they reach intelegence comparable to apes. each graid must essentialy gain it's own sentience over time.  

bonus tibit: the Graid's nervous system is also it's muscular system.



they are not a single government people. there are twelve major powers on Earthsky (the industrius moon is controlled by the senatorial of Coessus. the sancuary moon is technicaly under their juristiction, but they care little of it)
8 are in a semi-united state. of the other four, one cares little for the alliance, another has yet to fulfill the proper requirments for membership, and two are activly hostile toward the others.


Rathaljiorm of North is the name that matters. his people are a little different.
they come from the land of the ice and snow...

they come from the land of the ice and snow...
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!
I came, I saw, I went back to bed.

From the planet's dark zone?

The place that happens to be perpetually freezing, receives zero sunlight, has massive snowstorms and is crawling with monsters so big they'd probably just tank mid to low caliber rounds?


Whoever these guys are, they're pretty metal.

Heh, metal...

well, in complete seriousness, that's the point. before adding any new concept into canon, I've taken to asking myself "how would this look on a metal album?"


preferably NOT this one: http://www.kissfaq.com/albumcovers/cover_destroyer_large.jpg
cause they suck. they really, really suck



EDIT: also, you should hear their creation myth. brutal as F***

Guh, I just read through this whole thread in search of info for my star charts. I am truly, deeply apologetic to you, Crazen, for underestimating the quality of your creation. This is truly one of the diamonds in the rough, no matter how repellent the below-average punctuation may be to Grammar Nazis. I salute you and greatly look forward to more information on these guys.

On another note, I'm assuming that the Graid's interstellar possessions are comparatively low in number. I read just one reference to "the colonies," and most info was just about Earthsky. One moon was classified as a defensive fortress and these guys are well-equipped for defensive fighting. That and their very homeworld-centric culture implies to me that their exoplanetary dominions are insignificant in size. So am I correct in assuming that they don't have much beyond Earthsky?

I'm flattered. Thank you.

And your spot on. It's hard to build an empire when you don't exactly have a government. Also, tiny population.
Though they are rather far flung in the worlds they inhabit, seeing as some have been traveling for millions of years, enough time to reach almost anywhere in the galaxy (again, they don't use FTL).

I don't like your description "Impersonal Beam Spam." For one thing, since when is any kind of battle personal? (Except those involving Spaniards and six-fingered men.) For another, I happen to like cool flashy lasers.


As it is, I actually do have a battle between a Spaniard and a man with an extra appendage. So, there you go.

This is partially because my story is really just an enormous slash fic of the Princess Bride, this gave me the perfect opportunity to explain it.

You have lost 26% of my respect.
No. Actually it's satire on Vietnam.
You have gained 31% of my respect.

Congrats, Crazen, that's a net gain of 5% respect!

Well, what do you want from me, a soliloquy?
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Now I know who to invite into speeches and formal occasions.   :)

forgot to mention, that can't happen, sorry. Rahaun left his hovel one morning to find everything burning and streams of liquid fire falling from the sky.
Then the Starboard crew of Unerring Rightness II proceeded to launch two RPG's into his chest cavity. Then he blew up.


here is this nifty little chart I made:
