Resting after making them uninhabited, maybe? :twisted:

I quite like the idea of biocidal eldritch shoggoth things needing a nap.

Heh. Awaiting further instructions from their builders, in other words.

Something tells me its going to be spiders as the future epic nemesis. If there is anything that can truly be alien but at the same time be so close to home that we can understand, it would be them. Not sure how the hivers would feel about this. But its the only creature that Im sure every race in sots including the suulka would have an understanding of "ewww squish it." you know.. before it lays eggs on our planets ;p

Also wouldn't ancient, sentient, blood sucking spiders be frighting?

I still say space centipedes would be more terrifying.

Slumber, Watcher, 'till the spheres,
Six and twenty thousand year-

Wait, wrong setting. I hope.

The feeling I got prior to this thread was that they were space fauna- Like the starseed beasts from Niven's known space, (if I remember the right name,), just things that live in space and can occasionally be found in systems. Perhaps a cross between 'shoggoth' and 'cattle'.

Now I have no bloody clue.

Wait, VNs, Silicoids, and refugees have been explained away and sourced already? What? When the heck did this happen?

It did not.
The origins of VNs, Silicoids, and Refugees have not yet been confirmed, IIRC.
I have no idea where Rayp got the idea otherwise.

Nah, they didn't... I kind of forgot about them. Never met the refugees even once while playing Sots 1 also.

Perhaps the refugees are fleeing the creators of the Proteans? If so, I don't think the Makers will be very far behind.

You're assuming Leviathans aren't considered "battleriders" for them :insane:

You know... from the way Erinys said that, i wouldn't be surprised if the refugees are the fleeing creators of the Proteans. Though they might just as well be completely unconnected.

But i'm not quite sure if we should be afraid of their creators, or if the creators should be the ones worrying.
