Comment please! Creatures thrive on comments.

The Suntus Home Planet is the one with the blue atmosphere. The other planet is about five times as large and has a different atmosphere, but strangely enough it has the same continental layout. The planets are incredibly close to eachother, but neither seems to have a gravatational effect on the other. Perhaps the entire system was part of some bizzare precursor experiment? I mean, if there wasn't some sort of machine or outside force keeping them apart, this would happen:



Boom.





Suntus Homeworld c. 13000T




As Suntus intelligence developed, they realized that by sharpening the branches they used and covering thir forelimb with thick vegitation, they could better defend against predators.

Mating Practices

Well, you see, when a Mommy Suntus and a Daddy Suntus really love eachother...

   Well lets see. At birth, Suntus are genderless. After reaching an age comparable to 5 human years, a chemical process begins inside their bodies that for the purpose of simplicity we will call Puberty I. They first begin to manifest gender-specific traits in behavior. Gender-A increases consumption of food and generally forms protective groups with others of the same behavior. Gender-B Becomes more vocal and has the impulse to tend to the younger Suntus.
   At an age comparable to 20 years, Gender-A has grown thicker bones and a spike underneath its bony counterbalance below its mouth. It has also grown thicker legs and a stubbier tail. Gender-B has developed a sac filled with a gaseous material it roughly the same position as the bones supporting the spike in the Gender-A's.
   They mate when the spike pennetrates the soft membrane on the surface of the skin near the sac. The gaseous material bonds with the genetic coating on the spike and mixes with a liquid solution on the walls of the sac. The spike is withdrawn and the membrane reseals, and 2-4 infant Suntus mature along the edges of the wall. the gestation period lasts roughly 18 Earth months, and then they emerge by breaking through the same soft membrane.

Elaboration on the above map. 

   It may have been the first unifying government, but it was still very confederated. Patriarch Doso was born in Suntar, the most centralized Suntus society of its day. Its government was based off of Agriculture, as were most societies, but there was a difference. The number of fruit bearing vegitation of every major estate was looked upon every time the ruler was contested or died, and whoever seemed to have the most vegitation became the Agrak, which is most closely translated as Agricultural Patriarch. The Agrak had control over everything that didn't let him take vegitation from other estates in the area. Doso's only other sibling died at a young age, so when both of his parents died he became the head of the largest estate and the Agrak of Suntar.
   Doso made his first move toward power when at 23 EHY*, he and a band of some of the large in the region moved southwest along the fertile coast until they came to a nearby village aligned with the Shuk Agrisociety.          An Agrisociety was a group of Suntus that would tend to the fruit bearing vegitation collectively, and whoever did seemingly the most work would become Trak, something resembling Head Figure, for about one month in which time he would have to do little work, but would deal with outside soceties when necessary. Those in these societies who did no work were either fed by their parents and children, or starved, making ones like this rare.
   The current Trak of this society was known as Outoi. Doso brought his group to his dwelling and forced him to come out in front of the society who had been also forced from their work. Doso explained to him how their government work and it made their people strong, but when Outoi refused to even consider it, Doso had him removed from the village forcefully. He told the people that their society was now part of the Suntar heirarchy and that they now had to follow whoever had the most vegitation. A few of them objected, but he had them also sent out into the wilderness where they would no doubt be killed, claiming that the vegitation by their former dwellings now belonged to him.
   Doso continued this with a number of minor groups in the region, securing his family's place as the Agraks of Suntar for long to come with his confiscating of native lands. At 25 EHY, the people of the Shuk Agrisociety, the group that most Suntus in the region associated with, decided to try and stop him. Volunteers in the society grouped together and made their way with sharpened tree branches toward Suntar.
   Doso wouldn't let them succeed. With his broad powers he appropriated a group of Suntus four times the size of the volunteer force in a day, 2000 to their 500, and met them in the first documented battle in Suntus history. The volunteers put up a strong fight, killing 800 of Doso's men, but they  unpreventably failed, and the surviving 100 of them retreated home. Doso took his remaining men and marched on Shuk. It surrenderec to his will easily. He then found a strong collaborator, and arranged it that he had far more land that anyone else in the society. He was made the Subagrak of Shuk, and made to answer only to Doso.
   In the following years , he continued the first ever military campaign in history and brought almost all of the settled Suntus tribes under his control, placing a Subagrak at the head of every major society.
   At 28 EHY, he even ordered the first rafts built, wide, hardened vegitation would be strapped together with longer, more flexible vegitation. It all was from his increasingly bloated estate so he never overstepped his bounds doing so. They carried Suntus north to found two new model societies along either side of the Suntus gulf. in the year 10,000T Doso was 30 EHY.

Wow there's so much deep information it's almost bottomless. *bedum psssss* Cool creature, but the ball with 2 legs is a little over-exploited, no? Good thing they have so many alien stuff that stands out. ;)  And the maps are awesome.
