I have a idea for a race:

Transhuman: Cybernethicly enhanced human. Their are pale skinned with touch of blue and completely bald. They are also all mute (thought, it is suspected they communicate telepathically, using wi-fi link, between them). They are the only to be able to access some technology, technology for which they was actually created for maneuverate. They are the ''magic race'' of Steamspace, ''magic'' in this case meaning ''technology innacessible for the common man''. Your more likely meet them in A.I cordinated mining colony than in habitation colony, but they are legion in Terra's factorys.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Yeah, any "transhuman" properties would have to be biologically engineered. Although I doubt you intend them to be very blue, note this could cause confusion with the cold-adapted race, the Rymthers.

How about they communicate through sounds inaudible to the human ear? Instead of being able to "access" technology, their brains are modified to be basically big databanks and they hold knowledge over generations. Just some suggestions to keep them possible.

see that works for me, they utilize a larger portion of their brains, they are trained from childhood to memorize and recall everything they learn and see, they utilize their secondary vocalchords to communicate in inaudible tones, perhaps yes they even modify their bodies with lenses for their eyes, resp erators built into their own bodies, even adapt themselves to absorbing nutrient fluids made from inedible waste products to conserve recourse's, making their bodies exist on a near toxic PH level...i can even see 'translators' or 'ambassadors' of this race having a sort of typewriter connected to muscle tissue, allowing them to 'print' their thoughts as quickly as anyone could converse...

a very strange and horrible race.....

but with many uses and many possibilities...

perhaps they even have an unknown secret culture which passes on knowledge from humanity's past...

Mind if I join in


Space Fauna

With the introduction of a thin atmosphere some critters are likely to have made it into space on there own, as air currents from earth would merge with those from space


Daedalus  Spiders: originally small spiders that used silk to float from place to place they now have grown to tremendous proportions (low gravity), They have split into two sub species
Hercules spiders) inhabit the asteroid belt and have supplemented their diet with metal, these help form a metal/bone skeletal structure, they have been known to capture aether craft in their silk/metallic webs, this silk is prized as being on of the strongest materials known to man. Rumours of these creatures being farmed for their silk have been about for many years

The Glass spiders float in the depth of space,they have lost any colouring and being almost transparent are nearly invisble in space. Their webs collect the flotsam and jetsum of the void, they use their silk to form large nest sacks of this material, in their smaller juvenile form they sail (using webs on the aether currents) in swarms, which can cover and devour vessels to slow to escape

a few points

1.if the system has an air envelope, could this additional pressure cause Jupiter to ignite, Lucifer (2nd sun)?

2.Gas hold temp better then a vaccum, so could saturns rings have melted creating a ocean ring around saturn?
3. Rats /skaven/ratmen. rats today are evolving to intergrate them selves in our world, so may be in the future those develop intelligence, thumbs, a truly intelligence species not a human mutation

I'm a huge fan of rodents of unusual size and i think that big, even bipedal rats could work well, i dint know about any sort of civilization, but lets toss it about

Higher Pressure, Higher Temp, Jupiter is a failed sun that couldnt accumulate enough mass to being a fusion reaction like the sun

All the planets are are huge heat sink that radiate heat into the vaccum, if the medium was air not vaccum, this would slow the radiate of heat, perhaps creating a war zone in the air around each planet or object


hence it may be possible for saturn to have a huge ocean ring, more so if jupitor is a small sun

The Aether is too thin for conventional pumps to work. Any pumps are based on electromagnetic fields to gather the ions. Hence, life cannot breathe in outer space.

However... you can always inflate envelopes over places, to create breathable spaces in there. Any spiders in those sorts of places would be in zero-G, and over time might convert the envelope into silk...

Sorry, i thought electronic capacity have come back over time.

  it is a very good idea, it just needs some work...


perhaps as a 'worker class' or something, but with their own culture and as we said before, the inaudable tone communication

I notice that black pages are up for Callisto, Io and Ganymede. Are there any general ideas for these moons? How many inhabited planetoids and moons will there be?

It's the solar system out to Pluto-Charon for the main (i.e. bodies in Hydrostatic equilibreum) colonies, although the smaller iregular bodies are available for out of the way colonies.

I'd advise people to look at the atomic rocket site for the science, and pick out the stuff that doesn't require electronics (in the case of engnes, pretty much anything - there was a proposal circa 1912 to build an Nuclear Thermal Rocket running on Radium).

Sorry about that chaps and chappesses, I was on another of my not-go-one-one-of-my-favorited-sites-for-no-particular-reason thingymabobs.

I'll get a forum set up on one of these freeforum sites.

I'm still working on some ideas, i think that perhaps for earth's moon, i like the idea of crater cities on the dark side of the moon, giant brass and glass dome cities hanging out on the dark side, perhaps even have giant water reservoirs in them, maybe run by small mining colonies, just a handfull of 'moonbillies' hoarding their own personal inland seas...

i have a few characters worked out for this, I'm thinking scorched earth meets judge dread badlands, creepy religious spacebillies, mining colonies... i will post more soon.

Cool. They sound like an interesting race. I like how the fantasy races are popping up, but in more realistic version with actual meaning behind their evolution - i.e. the Merpeople were designed to be living on aquatic planets, the Delvers are like a more specified dwarf.

BTW what do Merpeople look like? Do they have the whole lower body as a tail thing or not?

Well, how did the people getting the treatment want to look? My guess is most want the stereotypical mermaid look, but some could be different.

Meh?

They're still variations on the theme of 'Mermaid'. It depends on whether the two species become detailed enough to warrant two articles.
