Different planets have different gravity...so it would be fair to assume that the elders on some worlds have more time before going "suul'ka" or dying than others.

They can be in either environment, but the most impressive facilities are on planets. Many forms of life do not reproduce and grow normally in microgravity or fluctuating gravity.

How does he construct/manage them?


He is a massively powerful coercer and telekinetic who began his career by enslaving an entire sentient race and forcing them to build him a giant battlesuit.

With enough intimate focus, he can do the same to any sentient race, although in general he would tend to choose those below Tech Level 4, and with little psionic resistance.

On a scale of 1-10, how maddeningly frightening would it be to tour the interior?


Funny you should ask. :twisted:

Also, besides the Zuul, what are some other examples of abominations that Bloodweaver "created"?


Name any species which has taken an unexplained leap in psionic or intellectual complexity in the last couple hundred thousand years. Name any species which seems driven to wipe out an entire biosphere with its physical and psychological appetites, birth rate and cultural norms. Name any species which worships a celestial male deity which assures them that they are the Chosen and all others must serve them or die.

So he created monotheistic religion and humans?

Not just that, but didn't the Tarka go on a genocidal crusade against psyonic talent? I wonder who encoraged them to do it?
Buy my book - Six Seconds of Moonlight on the kindle store.

Anyone can be a god beneath the moonlight, but who can be a hero?

Tarkas are more than willing to kill other Tarkas for far more trivial reasons than witchcraft. Not every genocide is the fault of a Suul'ka. Most species have the potential for Wintermind.

This is absolutely fantastic. I will be happy for days.

Geez! Between this and the one post a while back about how Suul'ka feeding would be hard to distinguish from a plague, perhaps even a Black Death, I want to hide under my desk. But it won't do any good...

Nope. He's sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake.

And that leads to The Pit. Naja should get another tag to go along with Doomsayer.

You're only a Cassandra if you have something perfectly correct and no one listens. ;)

Yes, but the question is: can a Doomsayer become a Doomy Cassandra: i.e. predicting dyooooomz0rz and nobody listening, and then it happens?
