Probably not a Goat, either.

Oh yeah!  Updates!  With the comming of Galactic Adventures, i'm doing what many others are doing, and that's making adventures based on stories of my wonderous pals, the Kratair.  So here it is, my first adventure.  Hunting on ancient Kratota, the long lost homeplanet of the Kratair.

It's not much, really just me messing around trying to get a hang of things, but you get to see a number of critters from the planet, which is nice.  I've got another one in the works right now.  Much more complicated, much longer, and much harder.  Been working on it for about 2 days now.  Should have it done tonight or tommorrow.  I've got a couple of little Kratairian history lessons like this one planned.

Heh...I played through that a few days ago.

Was nice. ;] I've been fiddling around lately trying to get the feel for making adventures too...

Allow me to spin you a tale.  A tale of loss, a tale of war, a tale of an empire lost and an empire gained.  This, my friends, is the story of The Kratair of the Novus Cluster

After the destruction of the Kratairian homeworld of Kratota about 10,000 years ago, the Kratair scattered out into the stars in their massive capital ships.  Over time, they either lost contact with one another or split appart for various reasons, dividing into many separate factions.  One such faction found its way into a section of space inhabited by a number of powerful galactic powers, such as the Naucean, Torpal, Sombreron and many others, carving out a life there and becoming a prominent figure within the galactic society in that region.  At the same time, another had drifted beyond the confines of the galaxy, into the nearby star cluster known as the Novus Cluster.

Unlike the other faction, this one had not been as united after the departure from Kratota, being separated early on and losing contact with the central government residing on the other fleet.  They soon fell into civil war, between the remnants of the old government, and a separatist faction largely formed of the largely repressed religious groups of the Kratair.

Before I continue with this tale, a quick bit of history is required.  As you may or may not know, the Kratair you are familiar with are very strict Atheists, shunning religion in exchange for facts and logic.  However, the Kratairian people were not always united under this banner.  For countless ages wars raged between the religious nations of Kratota and the Atheist factions, until eventually, the Atheists gained enough power to nearly snuff out the religious movements permanently, forcing them to worship in secret for fear of prosecution, until only a few communities still believed in a higher power.

It would just so happen, that a number of these communities made their home amidst the fleet headed for the Novus Cluster.  Without their large advantage of numbers, the ruling Atheist party of the government was eventually overthrown after a long and violent civil war, wherein every last member of the Atheist faction was wiped out from the fleet.

In time, the old system of government would be reestablished under the new banners of the religious faction.  Religion permeated deep within the culture of the fleet, becoming a central part of daily life.  As the fleet entered the Novus Cluster after years of travel, it didn't take them long to find a new home planet, New Kratota.  From there, the Holy Kratairian Empire spread quickly through neighbouring systems.  So far they had avoided any major conflicts with the many cultures thoughout the cluster in their expansion, choosing unsettled systems rather than those already colonized, but it is anyone's guess how long peace will last, as the Holy Empire continues to spread and it's disdain for those who's culture differs from their own burns brighter with every passing year.

Sounds good to me, RP'ing and fighting with the Kratair will be like old times.  Do you have any information on the religion, or is it on one of the older pages?

Well, given that the fact it wound up being 3/4 view was a fluke and I drew it while bored in the middle of the night I'm afraid I don't have any others handy, but who know what the future might hold.  I was actually experimenting and trying a more cartoony style than usual, but really the only thing that wound up different was the eye.

The 3/4 view was a fluke? ???

Awesome nonetheless! ;) :)

And wow, I never actually realized that the eye was cartoony before you pointed it out... Come to think of it, the Kratair in that pic seems to be more of a non-physical oriented than normal type of person.
