THE UNIVERSE (RTD)

Post  Poland on Fri Jul 06, 2012 12:51 am

(stars, color of dark matter, basic universe stuff)
MAKE ONE FOR NUMBERS 1-6


EXAMPLE
1 - dark sky, purple stars
2 - blue sky rainbow stars
3 - a giant cat and the universe is on the back of it
4 - everything flows in an endless river
5 - black sky white stars
6 - stars rotating around each other like a gyroscope

RULES

Alright, let's see...

  1. Dark sky with differently colored planets, the color depending on the ecosystem of the planet.
  2. The stars group together in multicolored streaks across the sky, like the Milky Way.
  3. The sky changes color depending on the season.
  4. The stars are constantly moving on random paths, like bugs.
  5. Differently colored stars, which move and collide with each other, destroying each other upon collision.
  6. Each star has a network of (breakable) tendrils, which connect to each planet that orbits it and provides energy.

1- Darkness everywhere, except that all matter glows like a neon sign, including the stars and planets
2- A dimension where everything is white, and all objects are single-colored silhouettes
3- A monochrome universe, but everything is shiny
4- Everything is a shade of red
5- Everything is cool colors and glowy
6- Everything is warm colors and bright

--THIS IS YOUR UNIVERSE(2)... PRETTY--

--SO SAVE YOU THE TROUBLE OF CREATING ALL THESE GALAXIES WE HAVE GIVEN YOU THE BLUE(1) ONE--
--WHAT IS ITS NAME?--


ALSO

--THIS IS YOUR PLANET--
--WHAT IS IT'S NAME?--

--AND WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?--
(same deal as before name/looks for each number, one set for the planet name, one set for galaxy name, and one set for planet looks)
vvvvvPREVIOUS DICE ROLL NUMBERS BELOWvvvvv

Spoiler:
1 = blue
2 = green
3 = red
4 = orange
5 = purple

EDIT: I forgot to mention what my mechanics are in this, so what I do with your dice 1 through 6 options is I roll a 6 sided die, then whatever number I get. In last case 2 I then roll for each persons 2 choice and whoever gets the highest roll wins, so when I did it lyla's got 6 and zombie's got 4 so that's why the universe is like that. for now we are all whittling it down to cities until we can make our characters

(for this part just put where you want the colonies, you can pick one or multiple areas, on the map, if you can use an image editor to show where
exactly that would be very helpful)

A BRIEF HISTORY OF ALBALI
The blue serene planet of Albali's geography was created by the shape, and movement of its galaxy,Ardis. A blue rotating helix made out of countless stars and planets, rotates and flows endlessly through the black void of the universe, so the constant rotation of the planets and stars shifts and morphs the grounds to roughly resemble the galaxy. Albali is a unique planet for years ago during its creation there was a massive tilt in gravity as the planet was reaching a bend in the galaxy's helix like form, which dislodged a orange rind like piece of the planet like a solid Saturn ring rotating around the planet's surface which has become to be known as Aethus, acting like a gyroscope the ring around Albali, Aethus, keeps the planet from shaking and constantly changing for it keeps the planet on straight rotation, thus allowing it to have life.
Albali has an energy flowing through it called Mana, Mana is another factor allowing this planet to thrive. The main body of Albali is rooted to the core of the planet allowing it to tap into its somewhat Mana generator, allowing it to thrive. Continents not connected to the core or land splayed out vertically or horizontally have a lesser connection to the Mana, for instance there is a craggy Island mountain cut off from the planet after its gravity shift, so it has become craggy and dry with little to no sustainability. Albali, is a new planet but one of the very few inhabitable planets in the Ardis Galaxy, and the life it does have is lush and bountiful, the weather is ideal where Mana is present but the Manaless areas or the Mana sparse areas of the world experience harsher weather because the atmosphere is more chaotic and is not calmed by the Mana's auras, so the craggy mountain lands experience harsh cold winters and frequent thunderstorms, and along the beaches and water the weather can be more forgiving.
It has been many Shifts now and the young planet is just developing sentient life.

Akanra:
The Bulen: very large, and muscular beasts that have a somewhat evolved civilization due to easy access to metal deposits. They have four legs with clawed feet, and their two arms have claws as well. They're covered with feathers to keep them warm and shield them from the wind, though their faces are more reminiscent of some sort of feline. They're somewhat arrogant, and long to expand their territory, though all previous attempts have failed miserably. So in retaliation, they no longer let anyone in, and the only people who can leave are the hunters to bring back food. They have developed agriculture, and the town is controlled by The Magistrate.

Lotar:
The Swasellians: a race of amphibious people, with dark scales to blend into the surrounding area. They have fins and gills, but also claws to climb on trees. They're a very spiritual race, and are very in-tune with the planet. They have four eyes, and a short snout that has many sharp teeth inside, and are typically very tall and thin, but with lean muscles. They're very tribal, and use every part of their catch for various purposes. They have no need of clothing, though they sometimes hide in deep burrows if the nights are too cold and huddle together. They are, as of yet, a very innocent race, not yet touched by the harshness of life.

Charybdis:
The Wellos: a very secretive race, comprising of insectoid creatures that can walk on water. They have six legs, and short arms that are used to strike out and catch fish or small mammals. They're not a very large race, and they usually keep to themselves, though they all live in a large cavern called The Hive. They aren't run by a queen, and are actually very convincing salesmen. They have to eyes that allow them to see in the dark, and a jaw that can unhinge, revealing a circular mouth lined with teeth. Their fingers are very long and segmented, and they have long, thin antennae that are hyper sensitive. They focus mainly on growing herbs and are very conscious about their health. Their main focus is the medical field. If you find one, they're glad to strike up a conversation, but they never talk about themselves.

((woohoo one of my few serious names made it through :b too bad the beach isn't Fight Club though DX))


AKANRA (Steppe)
Ytadati (singular: Ytada) -:- Quadrupedal beings with enormous muscles, and skin in varying shades of grey. They have long, vertical faces like a person's, but with most of their features looking more like bumps or indentations. They rely on senses other than sight, and a kind of sixth-sense based on sonar and mana reading. Their clothing is made from furs and twine, and often looks rather crude, as their hands (er, feet I guess) lack finesse. Their armor is made from stones that have been carefully chipped away at and reshaped to create hollow shapes and joints. Their civilization is chiefly focused on fighting/hunting, stoicism and warmth. They worship a duotheon; a goddess of cold and a god of heat. They are led by a shaman who has mastered the manipulation and creation of fire, and a warchief who is at the top of the hierarchy of battle; he is replaced whenever another Ytada defeats him in honourable combat. Their connection with mana allows them to manipulate natural resources like stone, soil and trees, create shapes of ice (with specific practice) and in rare cases, condense energy and create fire. They use no weapons and some of them use ice magics in combat. They are generally seen as slow-minded and terrifying, more beast than person, or as reliable and strong creatures of honour.

LOTAR (Beach/Swamp/Marsh)
Trelb (singular: Trelb) -:- Tall, slender humanoids with tree bark-like skin covering their limbs, and greyish-green skin over the rest of their body. They have gaunt faces, sunken eyes, and wear patterns of battle-paint made from the peat, sand and mud of their swampy home. Males and females look very similar to outsiders. Their clothing is made from pelts of reptiles and furry creatures. Their armor is made from long-cured wood from dead trees. Their civilization is chiefly focused on culture and technology. They worship the "life-source", or the planet's Mana generator. They are led by a council of politically-minded and/or elder Trelb. Their connection with mana allows them to manipulate plants, and if sufficiently advanced in this connection, manipulate weather. They wrap their bark in brambles for combat. They are generally seen as creepy and incomprehensible, or intelligent and mysterious.

CHARYBDIS (Shallow Water)
Nyqid (singular: Nyx) -:- Slightly diminutive humanoids with a generally feminine or androgynous appearance. Their skin is bluish grey and nearly translucent, and they have wings like a dragonfly's that propel them through water and allow them to fly for short distances. They have humanlike faces with irises in cool colors (as in not warm) and amphibious characteristics such as a nictitating membrane and gills supplementing their normal respiratory system. They are nearly entirely comprised of water. Their clothing is made from colourful scales and seaweed textiles. Their armor is made from tough scales and shark or squid leather. Their civilization is chiefly focused on mana, exploration, and architecture. They worship the mysteries of the sea as a force of nature. They are led by a Queen whose life is extended by the efforts of a retainer of specially trained mana-users. Their strong connection to mana allows them to perform many interesting feats, most of which are related to water simply because of its position in their culture. They use bone spears and sharp coral for weaponry. They are not often seen by outsiders and rarely venture inland, so they are seen as mysterious if seen at all.

Akanra:
The Punai- Swift, six-limbed catlike people who are extremely skilled at hunting. They are completely covered in varying shades of fur (most commonly striped, with the pale stripes running upward from their bellies), with extremely large eyes, short snouts, short tails, and long ears on the side of their heads. Their bodies are very muscular, and they can withstand very extreme circumstances for a long amount of time, such as severe temperatures or a lack of food or water. Their civilization is very peaceful among themselves, but hostile if they feel threatened (which is often); the females do the hunting (and are almost always extremely temperamental and bossy) while the males stay in the village to defend against enemies. Among all of the races on Albali, they are the only beings who have managed to tame and domesticate certain species of wildlife- large, buffalo-type creatures with long tails- to keep as work animals. They are a very independent and proud people, who do not allow any trespassers in their village. However, despite their hatred of consorting with the other inhabitants of Albali, they are very egotistical, and they take it upon themselves to enforce the "law" throughout the land. Because of that, they aren't very popular. As a civilization, they mostly focus on agriculture, and they are atheistic, which is the reason for many wars on religion with the Lagarto. They hardly ever wear clothes or armor, since they have fur and clothes only serve to inconvenience them, but while away from home, they always have with them harnesses and packs of various styles in order to carry their supplies and weapons.

Charybdis:
The Samakians- Very tall amphibious beings with short, newt-like faces, long bodies, tails, gills, and fins on their head that resemble small wings. Their skin is similar to a dolphin's. While they swim, they resemble large water snakes with arms and legs, and they move very fast. They hardly go any further inland than their village in the shallow water, as they are extremely slow and vulnerable when not in the water; even their village is barely inhabited- it usually only has a few occupants, while the rest of the population are off in some mysterious location underwater. They're a very secluded race, so not much is known about them; if they do have a religion, they hardly ever speak of it or show it in any way. When they speak, their voices have a very slow, lethargic tone, and they generally act fairly tired at all times. It's almost impossible to tell the difference between genders, and they don't seem to think much about gender discrimination. While dealing with other races, they will mostly just stare blankly, with an exhausted sort of air, as if their company is tiring them. Although they avoid the topic of religion (probably due to the frequent wars between the other two races), they are very adept in the study of astrology and divination, and whatever prophecies they make usually tend to be correct.

Lotar:
The Lagarto: Extremely devout, reptilian people inhabiting the marshlands. Their bodies are covered in scales, and they have long faces and tails, reminiscent of a lizard. On the back of their head they have three spikes; on females the spikes are only about a foot long, but on males they are at least a yard and movable- they serve as stingers, similar to a scorpion's tail, venom included. Among their civilization, they have three different spiritual elders who serve as leaders to the tribe. They are a polytheistic people, but they focus their worship on the main goddess of their religion known as Nampikk'ai, the goddess of prosperity. To demonstrate their faith, they are always enshrouded in a wide assortment of religious accessories, such as brightly colored bead necklaces that depict religious stories, or vibrant headdresses. Their houses, which are fashioned out of hollowed trees and tree houses, are similarly decorated. They have many different ceremonies and rituals, most of which involve sacrifices and offerings to their many gods. Because of their extreme faith, they are constantly at war with the secular Punai, whom they consider to be despicable beings that must be purged from the face of Albali.

AKANRA (Steppe)
Ytadati (singular: Ytada) -:- Quadrupedal beings with enormous muscles, and skin in varying shades of grey. They have long, vertical faces like a person's, but with most of their features looking more like bumps or indentations. They rely on senses other than sight, and a kind of sixth-sense based on sonar and mana reading. Their clothing is made from furs and twine, and often looks rather crude, as their hands (er, feet I guess) lack finesse. Their armor is made from stones that have been carefully chipped away at and reshaped to create hollow shapes and joints. Their civilization is chiefly focused on fighting/hunting, stoicism and warmth. They worship a duotheon; a goddess of cold and a god of heat. They are led by a shaman who has mastered the manipulation and creation of fire, and a warchief who is at the top of the hierarchy of battle; he is replaced whenever another Ytada defeats him in honourable combat. Their connection with mana allows them to manipulate natural resources like stone, soil and trees, create shapes of ice (with specific practice) and in rare cases, condense energy and create fire. They use no weapons and some of them use ice magics in combat. They are generally seen as slow-minded and terrifying, more beast than person, or as reliable and strong creatures of honour.

Akanra:
The Punai- Swift, six-limbed catlike people who are extremely skilled at hunting. They are completely covered in varying shades of fur (most commonly striped, with the pale stripes running upward from their bellies), with extremely large eyes, short snouts, short tails, and long ears on the side of their heads. Their bodies are very muscular, and they can withstand very extreme circumstances for a long amount of time, such as severe temperatures or a lack of food or water. Their civilization is very peaceful among themselves, but hostile if they feel threatened (which is often); the females do the hunting (and are almost always extremely temperamental and bossy) while the males stay in the village to defend against enemies. Among all of the races on Albali, they are the only beings who have managed to tame and domesticate certain species of wildlife- large, buffalo-type creatures with long tails- to keep as work animals. They are a very independent and proud people, who do not allow any trespassers in their village. However, despite their hatred of consorting with the other inhabitants of Albali, they are very egotistical, and they take it upon themselves to enforce the "law" throughout the land. Because of that, they aren't very popular. As a civilization, they mostly focus on agriculture, and they are atheistic, which is the reason for many wars on religion with the Lagarto. They hardly ever wear clothes or armor, since they have fur and clothes only serve to inconvenience them, but while away from home, they always have with them harnesses and packs of various styles in order to carry their supplies and weapons.

Akanra:
The Bulen: very large, and muscular beasts that have a somewhat evolved civilization due to easy access to metal deposits. They have four legs with clawed feet, and their two arms have claws as well. They're covered with feathers to keep them warm and shield them from the wind, though their faces are more reminiscent of some sort of feline. They're somewhat arrogant, and long to expand their territory, though all previous attempts have failed miserably. So in retaliation, they no longer let anyone in, and the only people who can leave are the hunters to bring back food. They have developed agriculture, and the town is controlled by The Magistrate.

Akanra:
The Gydoni: A race of hairy, large, hominids that wear animal furs. They have 5 fingers and toes, and ape-like feet. Their culture focuses on Hunting, Riding, and Animal Husbandry. Spiritually and Magically, they focus on drawing and manipulating mana from the earth. Their spiritual leaders are powerful geomancers.

CHARYBDIS (Shallow Water)
Nyqid (singular: Nyx) -:- Slightly diminutive humanoids with a generally feminine or androgynous appearance. Their skin is bluish grey and nearly translucent, and they have wings like a dragonfly's that propel them through water and allow them to fly for short distances. They have humanlike faces with irises in cool colors (as in not warm) and amphibious characteristics such as a nictitating membrane and gills supplementing their normal respiratory system. They are nearly entirely comprised of water. Their clothing is made from colourful scales and seaweed textiles. Their armor is made from tough scales and shark or squid leather. Their civilization is chiefly focused on mana, exploration, and architecture. They worship the mysteries of the sea as a force of nature. They are led by a Queen whose life is extended by the efforts of a retainer of specially trained mana-users. Their strong connection to mana allows them to perform many interesting feats, most of which are related to water simply because of its position in their culture. They use bone spears and sharp coral for weaponry. They are not often seen by outsiders and rarely venture inland, so they are seen as mysterious if seen at all.

Charybdis:
Phylarians: Frog-like amphibious humaniods, Typically stout in stature. They wear waterproof membranes that are extracted from a type of fish they hunt. They specialize in fishing and alchemy. Their spirituality and divinity focuses on manipulation of the mana in water and in living creatures.

ZOMBONI
Charybdis:
The Wellos: a very secretive race, comprising of insectoid creatures that can walk on water. They have six legs, and short arms that are used to strike out and catch fish or small mammals. They're not a very large race, and they usually keep to themselves, though they all live in a large cavern called The Hive. They aren't run by a queen, and are actually very convincing salesmen. They have to eyes that allow them to see in the dark, and a jaw that can unhinge, revealing a circular mouth lined with teeth. Their fingers are very long and segmented, and they have long, thin antennae that are hyper sensitive. They focus mainly on growing herbs and are very conscious about their health. Their main focus is the medical field. If you find one, they're glad to strike up a conversation, but they never talk about themselves.

LOTAR

Spoiler:
ZOMBONI
Lotar:
The Swasellians: a race of amphibious people, with dark scales to blend into the surrounding area. They have fins and gills, but also claws to climb on trees. They're a very spiritual race, and are very in-tune with the planet. They have four eyes, and a short snout that has many sharp teeth inside, and are typically very tall and thin, but with lean muscles. They're very tribal, and use every part of their catch for various purposes. They have no need of clothing, though they sometimes hide in deep burrows if the nights are too cold and huddle together. They are, as of yet, a very innocent race, not yet touched by the harshness of life.

LOTAR (Beach/Swamp/Marsh)
Trelb (singular: Trelb) -:- Tall, slender humanoids with tree bark-like skin covering their limbs, and greyish-green skin over the rest of their body. They have gaunt faces, sunken eyes, and wear patterns of battle-paint made from the peat and mud of their swampy home. Males and females look very similar to outsiders. Their clothing is made from pelts of reptiles and furry creatures. Their armor is made from long-cured wood from dead trees. Their civilization is chiefly focused on culture and technology. They worship the "life-source", or the planet's Mana generator. They are led by a council of politically-minded and/or elder Trelb. Their connection with mana allows them to manipulate plants, and if sufficiently advanced in this connection, manipulate weather. They wrap their bark in brambles for combat. They are generally seen as creepy and incomprehensible, or intelligent and mysterious.

-------------------------------------

The denizens of Charybdis, have swam the waters of
Albali the entirety of their existence,
and have adapted as so, to the environment


The Samakians are long slender creatures with newt like heads
that hold wing like fins on their temples, they are a
mysterious race and very little is known about them


The creatures of Lotar, the Nakrans have survived
all these years without eyes, by tasting the air
and the mana that is given off Albali


they are similar in comparison to their cousins
the Samakians, yet they have a thick leathery set of
skin where their eyes should be and
rounded scales as a layer over their skin



The Bulen are a strong noble race,
that has evolved in an odd,
drastic measure to adapt to their surroundings
they are a very aggressive race


they are four legged, two armed, feathered,
muscular beings, that have feline features,
quite an oddity compared to the other main races

>Implying this isn't referring to me
I appreciate the comment about my rumps though. Laughing The Nyqid woulda been more at home in the middle of the ocean anyhow, and the Trelb in some kind of forest-y wetland. And the Ytadati on a mountain of some kind. Not to say they wouldn't have been fine where they were. :b

Name: Polgris
Race: Samakian (gender ambiguous because no one can really tell with Samakians anyway)

S/he wears a large, close-fitting hat woven from seaweed when landside, an upper body wrap of sea-creature leather for warmth and carries around a shiny white rock in a pouch at his/her waist. S/he calls it Seklim and talks to it when feeling lonely. Their skin is speckled with dark spots near the wrists and ankles due to prolonged exposure to the caustic light patterns formed when light filters through waves. Never quite grew out of the habit of sleeping in bodies of water.
