COP: The Starmap 2

If you don't read all of this, I will find out.

And I will not be happy.

See post number 4 in the thread for link. Blame Danny's p|_|||k-455 Apple technology.

Matt and I have been working on a new map with a better background image. Yes, the COP grew a bit. But, as you can see, our domains are vast and stretched out. Population is extremely sparse, with some areas only have one inhabited planet. Think of it like the United States in 1850, fellow Americans. Canadians, think of it like Canada is now. There's a big nation there, but all the population is centered in a few areas.

We gotta fill this map up! And YOU gotta help us! Kind of. Here's how it is:
Yellow- The core of the Empire, directly administered by Tarsis. Most of the population is here.
White- Territories and tributary states with more self-government than the core. Tarsis is a far off place, the local authorities are who people answer to most of the time.
Black- Areas we're losing control over.
Cyan- Areas we're expanding into.

Now, what's with all those numbers? The yellow ones are the Imperial domains, but the white ones have letters, or are blank.
T-1, T-2, and T-1 are a part of Ervikar-Thairendīkir, or the Thyrendi Realm. These regions fall mostly under the Kingdom of Thyrenda, if in name only.
A-1 through A-7 are a part of Ervikar-Arkanīkir, or the Arkanin Realm. They fall under the command of Othaen.
D-1 through D-6 are a part of Ervikar-Daigondarīkir, or the Digondarian Realm. Naturally, they all under the jurisdiction of Digondaria or whatever Anders' planet is called. This is his realm, for all intents and pursposes.
K-1, all empty and such, is the entirety of Ervikar-Kistrikīkir, the Kstrk Realm. Aside from the Kstrk planet, and maybe a settlement or two, nothing is here but isolated stations.
Z-1, Z-2, and Z-3 are the Ervikar-Zaiarkīkir, the Ziarch Realm. It is named for a species now on the decline. It's mostly Tarsin populated.
There are two blank realms and a vestigial realm that's been mostly lost to barbarians right next to the Thyrendi Realm.

Now, Ian gets sector 1 of the Imperial administration, of course, and whatever else he wants. I'm taking T-1 for myself, with special oversight to A-1 and K-1, because I made up the races that live there. Anders gets the entire Digondarian Realm, if he so chooses, because he made the race that lives there. The Ziarch Realm is up for grabs. The blank ones are too, if you make up a unique and well-thought-out race. How unique? I can read about and say: Star Trek doesn't have the budget to pull that off. No more humans with forehead bumps please (You can't paint a guy white and get a Thyrendi, for that matter.).

Now, go forth, claim and create, my children!

In that case, I'd like to claim Sector 27 and the triangularish white sector behind it, and possibly expand into my old sector 9. The white sector maybe will be called Aork (AK-1) (pronounced Ark in the human tongue), and consists of my main planet Aurora, occupied by numerous races, and is outside of Tarsin influence. I'll have to think up some more planets for Sector 27 at some point soon.

Vogelia would be in sector 23 if not taken. Being Tarsin populated, and having no living native aliens, it makes sense to be Tarsin controlled. It was one of the earlier settled planets, and makes sense to be close to the core. It is probably one of the more populated planets in that region, and its administration (which is branched from that of Tarsis) is higher in the hierarchy than most other planet. After all, it technically is admin planet number 2.

Exactly. I created them by seeing the society mistakes and fixing them, making mah aliens d00ds a perfect society. Keep in mind that this is not impossible, our universe is classified as infinite, so maybe there's aliens like the ones I came up with.

And you don't understand why that's a bad thing?

If I were you, I'd change things a bit.
Like, oh, making it all a facade: something like how they USED to be human, but got infected by some kind of hideous, biologically impossible alien parasite and everything about them is calculated to draw in more human hosts.

Mary Sues of any type are completely uninteresting. Stories about things that are perfect in every way aren't worth the pixels they're written on.

It's highly subjective, but what you've got there definitely qualifies.

As for Awe's Thyrendi, I'd say they're possibly borderline, except that he hasn't really revealed much about them so far other than that they can't tolerate UV, they're territorial predators and there aren't very many of them. But then, they DID fall into the Frankenstein trap, which doesn't exactly speak volumes for their common sense.

I'll need to think Cisco's things... They're a bit too human for my comfort. I'll give more non-Human examples of my own creation:

Arkanin- 6 legs, 6 arms, nearly radial symmetry, with three jaws (technically five, but the upper two don't move and are fused together).
Sars- A collective of intelligent slime molds that pool mental power together to be smart.
Kstrk- Social hive arthropods, still working on limb count, do not seek to expand beyond their world, peaceful by nature (how's that for not human?). They're only in the COP for protection and improving their own standard of living. Of course, this changes when the UNE goes for a little revenge spree...

Ok, the Aokren. (pronounced ORC-Renn).
Haven't got much, but I'm working on it.

1) Roughly human in shape, though with bony and elongated limbs. Skeletal in fact, though their bones are larger and stronger than both Tarsin and Earth humans. They are a strange pinkish tan color (in Lego you would use fleshies), and most notable about them is their wide, lizard like mouths, with mouth parts like a crab's pincers. You will rarely see an Aokren reveal it's mouth except during feeding times, as they mostly wear a face rag, mask, or other piece to hide their mouths. This is due to some people in the coalition finding it 'unsightly'. It has now become part of their culture to wear masks and such.

2) the Aokren's home planet is Aok (pronounced 'ark') and it's smaller but still habitable moon, Tyrk (pronounced 'tark'). The planet has a hotter climate than Earth, but it gets extrordinarily and unihabitably cold when you get more than 3000 meters above sea level. Tyrk is 45% land (the rest water... Duuuh) and Aok is 60% land.

3) The Aokren speak mostly in clicks, pops, whistles, and other similar sounds, and sign language too. The language is extremely comlex compared to English or Tarsin. For example, a series of clicks with a certain hand movement can mean something completely different to the exact same sounds with a different hand movement. Their vocabulary is twice as large as Tarsin, and 3 times bigger than English.

4) Aokren often hunt with animals native to Aok, these creatures range from tamed tunnel worms, Hytran hounds, and other fearsome creatures.

5) Some Aokren are drafted into the Coalition as elite units. These units wear a kind of highly advanced combat armor suit. The suit has a single eye built into the helmet. Overall these units look like shorter, chunkier versions of Varion. The helmets and armored electric gloves can translate the pops, clicks, whistles, and hand movements of the Aokren language into Tarsin, Enlgish, or many other common languages. It sounds kind of like the Guilty Spark from Halo, only deeper and not as puny sounding. The suits are tan in color. Think Warhammer 40K Tau.

That's all I got at the moment. Not much, I know...

Here's my idea for an alien race:

Kyrol (Kee-rul)
Home Planet: Tychon
Technology Level: Post-Modern

Kyrol are a bipedal species that has a vegetarian diet of mostly fungi and underwater anaerobic protists. Due to high levels of carbon dioxide in Tychon's atmosphere, Kyrol absorb CO2 through pores in their body, and release oxygen. The thick CO2-filled atmosphere keeps Tychon very hot, and to compensate, Kyrol store water in their body as a reserve supply and to keep them cool, as rainfall is very scarce. Tychon is filled with many dangerous beasts, and thus Kyrol have course skin to deflect attack. Climbing fungi-trees to escape predators, Kyrol posses tails, padded hands and feet, and sport retractable claws. Kyrol posses two sets of eyes, one wide pair for close-range, and the other smaller for a smaller but farther view, allowing them to focus on far and wide objects at the same time.

Tychon

Due to the abundance of Carbon Dioxide in Tychon's atmosphere produced by the wide variety of fungi, the land of Tychon posseses few animals, but most of them large predators. Land animals on Tychon breath in the CO2 and produce oxygen. The waters, however, are filled with anaerobic protists and a wide variety of fish. The underwater environment is very similar to Earth's.

Well that whole topic took only 30 minutes to read! (I seriously read every comment.) Anyways, sorry I've been absent from the C.O.P. for a week or so. Anyways, here's what I'm thinking for my alien race:

Species Name: Vordalkians (prounounced VOR-dAl-kians)
Vordalkians are similar to insects if I had to best describe them. They're about 7-10 feet tall. They are carnivours mainly feed off other species native to their planet. Their technology is about that off Earth's modern technological advancement but they excell in biological technology. Their skin color can range from tan to black depending on what part of the planet they are from*. Main industries that the Vordalkians rely on is mining uranium (and other C.O.P. minerals like that) and weapons building.
Summary of their history:
Once having controll over their entire planet at one point, after a Vordalkian named Kxesct Szolvakindi created a biological weapon for the Vordalkian military to use to invade neighboring planets was accidentally realised into the atmosphere, over 70% of the Vordalkian population died out. (answer to * earlier)This caused a planet filled with mutated insectoids, and changing the way Vordalkoians look. Fron tan to dark tan, to black and brown after the biological weapon diaster. Even after 70% of the population was wiped out, Vordalkousians continue making biological weapons. Vordalkains comonly wear helmets to cover thier mutated face.

Maybe. They're too near-Human for my tastes, but if no one else comes forth with something really alien, then it's yours. But not quite yet.

I'm half tempted to claim a race of sentient amoebae that "see" by echolocation and feed on ionizing radiation. And when dealing with alien beings (from their perspective, of course) travel around in wheeled, sonar equipped cans with a lump of plutonium for a snack.

At the very least, it'd give me a decent excuse for why nobody wants to visit them on their homeworld.

Hand it to my UNE counterpart to come up with something truly alien. We could use you here.

Well, I WOULD, but I haven't got the parts on hand to build anything.

Here's something to think about people:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marrella
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opabinia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waptia

These things, as alien as they are, once lived on Earth. Now think about what could be out there...

Of course, this is also coming from a guy who used his imagination above all else for entertainment until 8th grade. I don't know how much you people use yours, so I'm not giving you all the same expectations I give myself.

Good question. I don't even try for half of my things. There's also the possibility of bigger than minifig scale, too.

If you don't read all of this, I will find out.

And I will not be happy.

See post number 4 in the thread for link. Blame Danny's p|_|||k-455 Apple technology.

Matt and I have been working on a new map with a better background image. Yes, the COP grew a bit. But, as you can see, our domains are vast and stretched out. Population is extremely sparse, with some areas only have one inhabited planet. Think of it like the United States in 1850, fellow Americans. Canadians, think of it like Canada is now. There's a big nation there, but all the population is centered in a few areas.

We gotta fill this map up! And YOU gotta help us! Kind of. Here's how it is:
Yellow- The core of the Empire, directly administered by Tarsis. Most of the population is here.
White- Territories and tributary states with more self-government than the core. Tarsis is a far off place, the local authorities are who people answer to most of the time.
Black- Areas we're losing control over.
Cyan- Areas we're expanding into.

Now, what's with all those numbers? The yellow ones are the Imperial domains, but the white ones have letters, or are blank.
T-1, T-2, and T-1 are a part of Ervikar-Thairendīkir, or the Thyrendi Realm. These regions fall mostly under the Kingdom of Thyrenda, if in name only.
A-1 through A-7 are a part of Ervikar-Arkanīkir, or the Arkanin Realm. They fall under the command of Othaen.
D-1 through D-6 are a part of Ervikar-Daigondarīkir, or the Digondarian Realm. Naturally, they all under the jurisdiction of Digondaria or whatever Anders' planet is called. This is his realm, for all intents and pursposes.
K-1, all empty and such, is the entirety of Ervikar-Kistrikīkir, the Kstrk Realm. Aside from the Kstrk planet, and maybe a settlement or two, nothing is here but isolated stations.
Z-1, Z-2, and Z-3 are the Ervikar-Zaiarkīkir, the Ziarch Realm. It is named for a species now on the decline. It's mostly Tarsin populated.
There are two blank realms and a vestigial realm that's been mostly lost to barbarians right next to the Thyrendi Realm.

Now, Ian gets sector 1 of the Imperial administration, of course, and whatever else he wants. I'm taking T-1 for myself, with special oversight to A-1 and K-1, because I made up the races that live there. Anders gets the entire Digondarian Realm, if he so chooses, because he made the race that lives there. The Ziarch Realm is up for grabs. The blank ones are too, if you make up a unique and well-thought-out race. How unique? I can read about and say: Star Trek doesn't have the budget to pull that off. No more humans with forehead bumps please (You can't paint a guy white and get a Thyrendi, for that matter.).

Now, go forth, claim and create, my children!

My planet, Xentia is in the new expansion area. Also, can I post landmarks from my planet in the group?

Its my baseball stadium, Seaport field, in the capital city, Oysteria. Xentia is the base planet of Lego League Baseball.

Good. I'm glad our records for the planet are the same.

Just to make it clear, you can take a yellow sector if it's the same one you had on the previous map. No taking other people's things, that's not nice.

I have read through this and I will sign up on the map on Flickr in just a minute. I apologize for my absence over the past couple of..long times...and I'll try to catch up, now that finals are over. But I still would like to participate :)

A while ago I claimed sector 11, so my sector ownage (that's not a word, and it's not supposed to be the one like pwnage) just stays the same, right?

Or should I also claim a blankie? (lol) From what I understand Z-1 is free for taking... Please correct me if I'm wrong. I will take it if I can.

Take 11 if you want, or you can take Z-1. The choice is yours.

Can you just randomly fill in the blanks? /worried
