[REQ][Sci]Starbound

Post by Archer_Algren » Wed Sep 06, 2017 6:33 am

Its a Beautiful Morning on the Planet earth, you are a student of the Terrene Protectorate Academy and today is your graduation day, the cherry blossoms in the school garden are blooming as well, soon you will be assigned to a ship under a commanding officer and will patrol the stars as an Protector, the Universe's premiere peacekeepers, on this day, you will recieve the most important tool for the job, the Matter Manipulator, a multipurpose tool to help you on your path, and your Protector's badge, for now, its best to get into uniform...

Rules and note:
The usual, and think of this as a lighter version of Mass Effect.

Races:

Human: The founders of the Protectorate, the peaceful, diplomatic Humans are entering a golden age of space travel when the story starts. They are considered a young race but despite thay, they accept all manner of aliens into their the Protectorate and tend to be boldly coming towards other species though there are some exceptions...

Avian: One of the older races in the Galaxy, the Avians have greatly matured technologically thanks to the head-start Kluex granted to them in their ancient history, but have not progressed socially for a very, very long time. Avian society revolves around the worship and adoration of Kluex, a god who first granted them their technology, and is said to grant them wings in the afterlife. Unfortunately, worship of Kluex involves both sacrifices of sentient beings and ritualistic suicides. Some grow weary of the constant blood sacrifices, violence, and stifling nature of the religion, and find a way to escape Avian society but at the cost of becoming exiles (or "Grounded", as they call themselves). Due to its Hierarchical, theocratic, and militaristic nature, Avian society is led by its warriors and priests.

Floran: A primitive, tribal species of carnivorous humanoid plants, Florans are notorious across the galaxy for possessing a high aptitude for violence and a rather low aptitude for impulse control. Acquiring the secrets of space-faring technology from ruined ships, Florans have spread across the stars and entered bloody conflict with many races; culminating in a devastating invasion and subsequent sacking of the Hylotl homeworld. Despite such a negative first-impression on the galaxy, however, the Florans are not completely evil savages, and many of their kind are slowly adapting to live peacefully in the greater galactic community.

Glitch: Part of a much larger experiment that produced artificially created species meant to simulate society, the Glitch are the only survivors of said experiment, on account of never advancing far enough to discover Nuclear weapons due to, well, a glitch. Glitch settlements are found all over the Galaxy, though most of the inhabitants are unaware they are in a simulation. Those that do make such a discovery are exiled, out of fear they might spread the "madness plague".

Even after awakening, a Glitch will usually continue to hold on to their Medieval values and aesthetics, meaning much of galactic Glitch society still revolves around the various keeps and noble families.

The Glitch are essentially robots that need to eat, sleep, and breath.

Apex: Originally a race similar, if not identical, to Humans, the Apex's love of science led them to voluntarily transform their entire species into a race of ape-men, in a bid to maximize their intelligence. The Apex race is ruled and governed by the Ministry of Scientific Progression and Knowledge (otherwise known as the 'Miniknog'), led by a shadowy and charismatic figure known only as 'Big Ape'. The Miniknog rule the Apex with an iron fist, punishing any dissent and sacrificing countless lives in the pursuit of unethical sciences. The ruthless, totalitarian regime orchestrated by Big Ape has inspired several failed rebellions, and many Apex flee from their homeworlds to live among other races.

Hylotyl: An ancient race that values knowledge, beauty, art, and peace. At one point, the Hyotl were at home on both land and sea, but their near-genocide at the hands of the Florans drove them far beneath the waves were they could not be followed. Despite taking quite a battering and even losing their homeworld to the Floran Horde, the Hyotl have more or less fully recovered and have established huge metropolises on countless ocean planets, though they have yet to forgive the Florans. Seeing themselves as enlightened, they want nothing more than to "uplift" the other races.

Novakid: Succinctly described as a race of "interstellar gas-bag people", the Novakids are a bit of an oddity in the galaxy. Despite being on average even more intelligent than the Apex, their forgetful and easily-distracted nature results in a culture almost as stagnant as that of the Glitch. The Novakids have no charted settlements, no recorded history of any sort, and even the best xenobiologists have little clue how their bodies work - being made entirely of star material save for a metallic brand in the center of their faces. Most Novakids wander the stars aimlessly, doing mercenary work or odd-jobs for the 'fleshy' races, and never settle down in one place for very long.

Will put up a CS if this gets enough interest.
