Although Gendler’s look like blue furry puff balls with eye stalks, they have an extremely advanced society and excel especially in the sciences. They have loving family units and close bonds to each other but are fundamentally practical and will sacrifice themselves or their family members for the greater good despite their deep love. When the Gendlers discovered that their entire galaxy was being destroyed by a massive black hole that was spewing massive amounts of radiation out, they determined that they had to escape their galaxy quickly if their species was to survive intact. The younger generations of Gendlers … Continue reading Gendlers, Race
Puff Errington is a member of Detach Detachment who hails from one of the seedier urban worlds of the Alpha Quadrant. These planets, first to be settled by humans as they expanded off of Old Earth, were poorly managed models of galactic settlement. They combined heavy industrialization with a large population which quickly led to poor living and education conditions. As more and more settlers travelled further into the Galaxy, these first colonies were largely abandoned to themselves. Although it is possible for inhabitants to leave these planets, economic constraints and strict legalities make it difficult. Puff was born into … Continue reading Private Puff Errington
Wodin Whatthehell is originally from the planet of Ethos in the Logos Solar system.

Most of those who left went to the asteroid of Pathos that had been inserted into the Logos solar system by the GAGA in order … Continue reading Sergeant Wodin Whatthehel
The evening was marred by the weight of the chip key in his pocket. He hung around in the green room, not wanting to take the box seat with the other GAGA dignitaries and have to sidle away from the others before his act. He in fact didn’t want to see anyone, nor be in their vicinity- the chip was like a contamination that made him want to keep it from other humans. The door it unlocked made him want to shove the contents of the locked secret in the faces of the billions of people shortly about to watch … Continue reading Quetzal meets Consin Arkadie

Wr-i Bullets (Wrought Intelligent bullets) were an early invention of Wrought Industries. The general premise was based on earlier, Niles-age wireless technology. Embedded in each slug was a micro-receiver that allowed “complete control” of the bullet’s direction along the horizontal axis, and moderate control of its vertical motion based on parabolic physical principles. Nilesian bullets were quickly taken off the market due to the wifi signal’s ability to be hacked- leading to the shooters hoisting by their own pittards, so to speak. The concept was abandoned until Victorinus Wrought’s company devised nano-crystalline receivers. These tiny fibrous metallic compounds altered the … Continue reading Wr-i Bullets
