Featured Entries

Hermes

Hermes units are known for their tall necks, which are normally 4 and a half feet to 5 feet alone. Some necks have been recorded to be as long as 100 feet but those Hermes units are few and far between. The common Hermes has 4 legs, all with 4 toes. These legs can be used as hands in a pinch. At the top of the neck of a Hermes is a TV head with wings connected to the side of them. The screen of most Hermes units is absolutely blinding and can be used to surprise any foes.

Aftik

The aftik is a bipedal raptor like creature, with most of them being around 5-5’6 feet in height. It is covered in sturdy feathers including its iconic “crown” on its head. They have a “guiding light” on their chest; this is just an oval that most aftiks are spiritually attached to.

They have a very long and thick tail which they use to balance themself while hopping. While aftiks do walk normally, once they pick up speed they begin to use their extremely powerful legs to hop along the landscape. Aftiks are known for their speed and have been recorded to hop at over 45 mph. Most aftiks are very weak and will run out of steam in a matter of minutes.

Valkan

Valkan is a sandy, red and black, mineral-rich planet with an extremely hot atmosphere compounded by pollution and radiation. There are two habitable regions at the north and south sides of the planet, separated by the expansive desert wasteland that lies between them. The resident species are the volkronn, who make their homes in cities built in the hollow insides of massive, iron-wrought superstructures on the planet's surface.

Apidee

Apidee are small bee people with four arms and two legs, with either dark gray or dark brown skin. They have a round head with a pair of bee-like antenna and black or yellow hair, sometimes black and yellow. They have two largish black eyes and wide gleeful mouth. They have a fuzzy white 'collar' of fur.

Most of their body is covered in a thin black carapce that is decorated with yellow stripes, the design and number varying from individiual to individual. The have a bulbous bee-abdomen thats similarly striped in black and yellow and ends witht a stinger, and have a set of bee-wings on their back.

Magneto-Horzz

A Magneto-Horzz is essentially a Horse, a metal Horse of unparalleled majesty and excellence who's mane and tail are streaks of lightning and who's hoof-falls sound alike to thunderclap. A Horse who's eye's streak blaze with blue energy and exhalations electrify the air. But still, essentially a Horse.

Tegyp

Tegyps are a humanoid alien species that appear, for the most part, fairly plain aside from one or two strange qualities. Tegyps do not have hands or heads connected to their body in any way, instead their arms end at the wrist with their hand floating in the position a normal hand would be, this also applies to the neck and head of the tegyp. The neck of a tegyp ends around half way up, with a pyramid shaped head floating above the neck “stump”. This pyramid shaped head has no mouth, and has a stone-like surface with a single eye in the center of the main face. This is the most common appearance of a tegyp, however some tegyps may in fact have multiple eyes, on multiple faces of the pyramid, although it is most common that the “dominant” eye, so to speak, is much larger and serves as the main “face” of the pyramid head.

Cartricke

Cartricke is very heavily built upon, most of the planet consists of multi layered city blocks that are lit using mirrors. The mirrors have deliberately been placed into a disorienting pattern, however, and the network of smoke vents ending in the city make it even harder to navigate. The kouninis themselves know the way by heart and have very little trouble navigating their planet.

There are not nearly enough Kouninis to fill all their buildings and large areas of the planet are nearly deserted. Which areas these are varies. Kouninis usually flock to popular landing spots and will wait there untill all of the crew leaves their ship and gets lost before stealing it.

Eris

There is only a single Eris. There may be at times multiple Erises but all of these Erises are the same Eris. One needs to understand that nearly nothing about Eris makes any sort of sense and that one should take everything about Eris with a grain of anti-matter.
