Five pages to read already !!!! Sad

I'm having trouble with the whole Pantheon/Real Life thing at the minute, so not convinced I'd be able to join in!

BUT, if I were to be allowed a dimorphic race in symbiosis with another (Firvulag/Tanu+Ships) I might give it a go.......

(Not that it would matter to everyone else anyway, as my lot would always be fighting themselves) Big Grin

I want to play a genomic race.
I thinking about a race formed by only 100 "unit" and one mind.
They live in a capital ship and all the other member of the race are robots and AIs.
the race seek for perfection. They land on the planets that they meet during the travel in the cosmos... and seek for good DNA to ad to their own.
100 living beings and the other are robots...

I like it.... :d

Wow. Looks like I missed a lot yesterday (was pretty sick). Looks like everything is going quite well. I'll post the rules and registration guidelines Sunday. Until then, keep brainstorming. And my PM box is always open.

Heh. I suppose I should mention that each race will only have one ship* to start. Anything other than a few shuttlecraft and such, you'll have to build yourself.

And a generation ship is fine, Murrin.

*As a sailor, I set the definition for "ship" to be anything that can make an unassisted trip from one planet's orbit to another.

Me too.

Do we have to be space faring though? Could our race be welcoming of visitors, but still be home planet bound for one reason or another? Sort of like McCaffrey's Crystal Singers? So they can journey off planet for short periods, but would be dependent upon others for the transport?

Yes, Menolly. If you choose, your race can be predominately homebound. It would be a distinct disadvantage (especially considering it will be difficult to increase your GI beyond a certain point while remaining in only one system), but that would entitle you to a significant advantage in return. However, without having a means of interplanetary transport, you must provide a suitable rationale behind being involved in galactic affairs, i.e. advanced celestial observation or extraterrestrial communication.

Your background appears to be fine, Argothoth. Your disadvantages would appear to be a lack of a home planet and a limited population. Your advantages would be advanced robotics and artificial intelligence.

yes, but my gene-warriors will increase their abilites and the power of the race adding genetic material to themselves

Hmm...

What does this mean? If I am disadvantaging myself by doing so, how am I entitled to a significant advantage? Or does that call in the strength and skills points thing again?

Uh...can I lay claim to being the world that is the only source of something absolutely essential? Like Arrakis' spice? Or would that subject me to hostile intentions on other's part? I would prefer to be peaceful, if at all possible, especially if I stick with my monastic monks as the race...

OK, ok. I'd better put up my idea now because the two ideas I had previously have already been taken. Evil or Very Mad Laughing


Race: Orions

Special abilities: mind reading and intellectual influence (meaning that they can control the weak-minded and influence strong minded - by role of the dice by our esteemed game master Syl).

The Orions are a highly-evolved intellectual race and persue knowledge and study. Because of their intellect, they use their telekentic abilities to communicate among themselves and with others although they still have use of their vocal cords in case they need to communicate to lesser life forms.

Their goal is to share their knowledge with the universe and learn all that is learnable.

Because of their vast knowledge, their bodies are also highly evolved. Similar to likeness with humans, they are very tall and have no body hair. They are pale with blue eyes. However, because of selective breeding, they are a very attractive race which could explain some their influential mind control. They are extremely well built and strong because they have learned that the mind and the body work in conjunction together. They would look like the equivalent of a human athlete on earth - strong and muscular.

I will add more when I think of it.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Yes, I'm saying being a non-traveling race would put you at a disadvantage. And for every disadvantage that you have, you're entitled to an advantage (skill), so long as it's not more than two advantages and two disadvantages. In your case, that would be a big enough disadvantage that you could claim two advantages with just that. You don't have to, but I would.

As for the second part, I'm basically just asking for a reason for you to be involved in the game, something that makes you involved in the galaxy (otherwise, it's hard to say you have any 'Galatic Influence'... it'd be like starting out in the Pantheon as a mortal or with 0 DRP). You can choose to be peaceful (whether other players or events will accommodate that is a different question) and predominately concerned with domestic affairs.

Now, the spice thing could be your ticket. You could choose to set your race up as galactic traders, your planet as a central trading hub. Think DS9 or even Tattooine. If that was the case, I'd definitely choose some advantages that would support that. Like increased planetary defense and an effective justice system. *shrug*

so, baking to my race, i have the advantage to have an advanced technology, and the disavantage to have a small number of people of my race.
I don't have a home planet, it could be a disavantage....

and i will be peaceful.

So should i chose another advantage?
