Just thought id throw this up here, mostly to keep track of were the characters been and what theve found, hopefully it will make my amateurish attempts at a quest a little easier to keep track of :P

This is a layout of the parts of the ship weve seen so far. dotted lines are assumed walls, black squares are doors and the black areas are places with no light.

this will be rough as hell cause ive got no spell check atm but bear with me..

Reguarding that thing on Korroks face.
short version, a semi-permeable force-field that allows unrestricted access by solids/liquids but filters oygen/nitrogen to non-leathal levels.

Loooong version.
Korroks people come from a world that suffered near total bio-sphere (if thats even a real word) collapse nearley two million years ago. What basicaly happaned is not long into thier version of the industrail revolution they discovered how to make plastic's, the effect was devastating. imagine it, the "Dark satanic mills" of victorian fame not only churning out smog, but noxius gunk into the water and plastic junk onto the ground.

Eventualy it got into the food chain and brought almost the whole thing down, a planet of five billion was reduced to bearley a hundred thousand, huddeling in caves carved from the landfills, facing a bleak future of long and slow extinction.

fortunatley for thier decendants, the sudden change in enviroment threw evolution into overdrive, adapting them to use the chemical waste to thier own advantage (plastic in the blood is used to plug cuts and re-enforce bone ect) and thrive in the most hostile of enviroments.

the down side of this is that a pure, unpolluted oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere is actualy toxic to them in large ammounts, they literaly over dose on it. hence the need for face masks when exploring such places, idealy however they would have a full body suit but these are very expensive and most blue-collar workers can only afford the (comparativley) low tech face field.

Is the thing on Korrok's tuckus a fat tail or a bizarre arthropod-like abdomen?
>>
No. 63416 ID: 8d7792

>>63401
Its sort of like a abdomen, with more in common with insects then mammal internal structure.
Internally his species isnt too strange, they have a heart, stomach, lungs ect that function broadly the same way ours do, the odd thing is were those organs are in the body :)

So does he have a exoskeleton or is there a ribcage structure back there?

pretty sure this is never going to come up ever in quest, but if im braking some rule about spoilers just let me know :)

>>63421
he has a endo-skeleton (internal) comprised of a bone like material, and his tail dose indeed contain a ribcage like structure.

heres a break down of all the info i dumped on you in that last update.
Alvari = extinct race, once ruled everything but turned on iself. Think fuding hillbilly clanns with accsess to hyper-technology and youll get a accurate picture of the race as a whole.
Aius = sociopathic race of lizard/insects, will attack anything simply to see what happanes if they do, think the joker crossed with a over excited dog.

Sounds like their race must have pissed off every species in existence. Why hasn't a more powerful race, like the Star Police or the Evil Religious Isolationist Aliens destroyed them?
>>
No. 67296 ID: 011678

>>67283
Three reasones.
1) there are no more powerful races, and they outnumber the races that have the same technology level as them almost a million too one
2) there some what isolationist, as long as you dont attract attention (ie, invent something they havent managed to figure out/do something they cant) they'll ignore you infavor of mantining and improving the Hive.
3) there just so damn usefull, a labor force of trillions that will do literaly anything you ask them too, from building your new colonys to wiping out a pirate stronghold, is more then worth the pice of a few worlds obliterated.
plus, all scocietys need a few people around who are willing to kill with no questions asked..

ive been wnating to go over this explination again, as i dont think i did it very well, giving the Aius a sort of mary-sue untouchableness that i realy want to stay away from, so here gose.

The Aius are almost like wild animals in the fackt that if you know what your doing you can easily out run/think/fight them, but if you make the slitest mistake or (like the infamous Bear Man) start thinking of them as friends then they will turn on you before you can blink.

As a species they are totaly fixated of the betterment of thier Hives first, and Species second. every single Aius, from Worker to Queen, is mearley a tool to further the Hive and thinks nothing of sacrificing itself for the greater good, they have a hard time recognising that other races value the lives of individuals and this often leads to conflict as they hunt and feed on others, but it also means that anyone they attack can kill them with little worry of revenge attacks.

They mostly stick to thier hives, mining building and inventing, the ones youll see walking the streets are either Worker caste's looking for supplies or specialy breed Scout castes exploring the surface, these scouts are the ones to watcxh out for, as they are the ones who will tell the hive of any advanced tech you posses, wich will most likley lead to them attacking you to take it, as they only thing that can justify thier terrible lives is to be the Best. At everything.

Your right to think that others would plan thier downfall, and its kind of a open secret that this is the case, in fackt one of the lesser known reasones they helped form the council is so that, after what they see is a inevitable genocidal war between the Great Four, civilisation will still survive, and not sink back into barbarism like it did after the ALvari.

No. 73392 ID: 011678

im also working from the asumption that any outside observer wouldnt have the context nesacery to spot the differneces between cultures, leading them to assume a planet has one giant super-society, all differences that are so obvius and important to us would seem totaly trivial to them, and vice versa.

so while scholars and other learned people know the differences, for the population as a whole, casual rascism is the flavor of the day.
"Man, Aius are all Nuts!. ah well at least they can read, not like those filthy little feg."

I cant rember if i said this before but i think pointing it out would clear up a little confusion regarding why the aius are allowed to run around when there so psychotic.

you know those other aliens in the propaganda picture? the ones straining with the leash? each of those races is just as powerful as the aius in both technology and physiology, the whole council came about when the Great Four (as they are known) realised a war between them would result in extinction of all sides.

Learning the lessons the Alvari refused too, they formed the council and a myriad laws to ensure that when the end comes and they wipe each other out life continues to flourish and advance.

Everything ends, but ends are beginnings, they want those that follow to see that they tried, and to think of them kindly.

Happy new year one and all!
Thanks for sticking with me through thick and thin for one and a half years worth of Questing!

Ill be putting a break in the story soon cause the main thread is now fast approaching 1000 posts long, but fret not as the interlude will be short and sweet, featuring a face we've not seen in a while, before returning to the main cast.

Things are planned for the second half.
A spreading Infection.
A hunting Insect.
A place untouched by life for fifty million years.
And a sleeper, waking from a long dream, bringing nightmares with him.

Wait, humanity exists, as a space-faring race?

...that's kind of confusing. Naoko's and Amy aren't human, but they appear to have an earth-comparable background in language, culture, and technology. Heck, they even make references to places with earth place-names. I'd assumed for a while earth just happened to have animal people in this setting, but this makes it odd. Especially since they also made it clear their world is pre-contact, while the humanity mentioned in itq is post-contact.

That leaves us trying to account for two "earths", or at least two worlds that have weirdly had a very similar development, in a setting where you've clearly made an effort to make aliens more alien to one another.

No. 83061 ID: 50338d

Let's see. Control-F-ing through the threads, Half-head refers to their rooms as human dwellings, and the space-cop addressed Amy as human. That might be consistent with their being a time gap due to the abduction, and their knowing of future-humans.

Oddly though, Lolumalus doesn't call them human. In fact, he really seems to think they're from a pre-contact civilization, and even explains how they would be returned home in a manner to ruin their credibility. That really doesn't make sense, when he explains his species and humanity are supposed to be close allies. You'd think he'd have at least seen a picture, once.

Something still doesn't add up. >>83060 And I'm relieved to learn that's apparently due to plot, and not a plot-hole.
