Thank you for reminding them doctor. Also, as penumbra espinosa said, the wiki is not for posting these concept races.

PostSubject: Re: Concept Race   Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:06 pm

Well, a long time ago, I developed a race called "Leralons" on Spore. As time passed, their look changed and I adapted them to other space genre games. The first time I created the Leralons on Spore, they were humanoid grey aliens with a dinosaur head, but now they are four legged beings with arms, because I considered humanoid aliens too mainstream. Here are their current characteristics and history:

The Leralons are a four legged race that evolved normally on a Earth-like planet named Feros, orbiting a binary star. At the beggining of their Society Stage (equivalent to humanity's Antiquity, I believe), a science and philosophy based civilization know as the Hadrian Empire emerged from the city of Hadria, their capital and once a city-state. The Hadrian Empire is equivalent to the Greek Empire of Alexander the Great, but in the case of the Hadrian Empire, it did not fall. Of course, due to the delay for information to go from one place to another, imperial management was extremely difficult, so the Empire almost collapsed, but it was saved with the invention of the telegraph. However, the Hadrians had still not dominated their homeplanet. After all, other empires and minor civilizations still existed.

It was in the ending of the industrial age were everything changed. The world was at peace, when the first world war happened in Feros (the Leralon homeworld, in the case you have already forgotten). The motives for the conflict were because of resource scarcity, and while the Leralons were already sending probes to distant worlds, they were still not mining these worlds. The war raged between the empires, while the minor civilizations diplomatically joined themselves with the empires. The result of the war was the victory of the Hadrian Empire and their world dominanation, which also included diplomatic dominace over the minor civilizations, who would never throw their armies against a powerful empire. But as their empire now covered the entire planet, it would be wrong to their empire name be "Hadrian Empire", as it would be too "Hadrianocentric". To make the Empire look really global, it's name was replaced with "Leralon Empire", as the word "Leralon" refers to the entire race, and not a single civilization (remember that the proper name of the race is "Leralon". "Hadrian" was only the denomination of a citizen of the Hadrian Empire. Think of the word "Leralon" as equivalent to "Human" and "Hadrian" equivalent to "Roman", for example). But the name of the capital of the Empire was still Hadria, though.

But even with all of the resources on Feros available for a single civilization, these resources were too little and would soon come an end. This forced the Leralons to start expanding to new planets. And this is how the Leralons dominated the stars...

Interesting facts about the Leralons:

* Though they are an empire, they don't have an totalitarian or oppressive government. Actually,the Leralon society is democratic and the way they choose their leader resembles aristocracy: the most intelligent and capable Leralon on the Empire will be chosen as its leader. Of course, the choosen Leralon can refuse the proposal, but such thing is extremely rare, since being choosen as the leader of the Empire is one of the greatest things a Leralon can achieve.

* Hadrian was the denomination of a citizen of the Hadrian Empire, and this term is now only used to refer to Leralons that live on the city of Hadria, their capital. Leralon is the name of the race, and after the unification of Feros, it also became the denomination of a citizen of the Leralon Empire.

Behavior and society: the Leralons are obsessed in discovering the secrets of the Universe, so they are a science focused civilization. Though they are a peaceful civilization, they have also used their excellent technology to develop the most deadly weapons they could think about.

Religion: the only Leralon religion is polytheistic, but half of their population is non-religious, due to their scientific nature.
Appearance:


My inspiration for their new body were the aliens themselves from Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds (2005 movie). I'm not talking about the tripod war machines, but the aliens who controlled them, who were also tripods.

Architecture:


NOTE: I do NOT own this image. It has been done by Ensemble Studios as a concept art for Halo. But the architecture represented in this image fits perfectly for the Leralon culture.

Ship design:

Good concept race, a little lacking on background, why they evolved and all, but I like it.

If you say so, here's their history. Good reading!

PostSubject: The Le'phu   Mon Aug 05, 2013 5:26 pm

The Le'phu
The Le'phu or "Phoneys" as they are called by the Galactic Council of Species. The Le'phu are a hard working
Insectoid race,They are master shipbuilders specializing in organic built ships,being able to use their detachable exoskeletons to repair any damage.They run some of the top ship manufactures in the galaxy,with enough credits to buy themselves out of trouble.They evolved in the star system Ani'ous 3 they lived in a hive society threatening the entire galaxy, until someone killed their queen and made them calm down,as it turned out they were widespread throughout the galaxy some even in other galaxies, this made them resource as they have the "throw more men at it" attitude.The Lume'phue High Council decides all Le'phu activity outside of hive worlds. Every 100 years,the Queen or Y'Argon,must decide to war with,Because Culling in numbers is needed.So every 100 hundrid years the galxy arms it self and goes against an octillion worth of Le'phu that engrosses the galxy in a wave of bodies,Also it's very bloody. The Le'phu has a sybloic realtionship with the
Paragrid, an small-large animal that uses the Le'phu hive worlds as an hideout from the rest of the galactic community,since they are hated for their eating and true rapid reproductive cycle,also the Le'phu think their cute as heck, They at the current time do not have have a name for the government system they use because the one they have is unexplainable and weird.

Good background, well written and very thought out.

@Jimexmore

Good job getting your point across, makes me think of locusts towards the end.




Now for a concept of my own.

The Nost'ros:
 

Hope it's okay to reference your race in this one Spacer.

Thank you, and I actually liked that reference. It means that my race is at some point interesting to others, and not insignificant. And by the way, I liked your race. Their isolationism, medieval art and mystery of their natural body would make me curious if I found them in space.

I think that I will also put a copy of the Leralon history on their post (the one with images an concepts I made for their ships and physiology).

Thanks, I do a bit of writing in my spare time, so these ideas flow through my mind and I have to write/type them down.

Plus, you wouldn't want to run into one of those guys in a dark alley. :lol:

Not to be an a-hole, but what is the purpose of this thread?
Isn't the game supposed to have auto-evo and simulate an evolution? What purpose does predesigned creatures have? Or are they to be used as basic "shapes" for the auto-evo to "work toward"?

They're supposed to test the constraints and possibilities of the Auto-Evo system, exposing any of its shortcomings. Plus, once we reach the space stage, some of these may be implemented as races on other planets.

Hmm, I didn't know about that last part Oliver, the testing possibilities of the auto-evo system, but not the very last.

EDIT: I've had an idea, as a method of keeping morale up on the site, on my own time, to write little pieces featuring the concept races on this thread. This would be done in the way of a show I like, called Deadliest Warrior, and would like to know if the devs approve of this or not.

To keep it short, I like it as much as there is a quote from a Lordi song in my signature. And I would prefer to wait on dev approval before I do any such thing, if I get it.

Looks like the Alien from "Alien Planet" A Documentary done by BBC on a fictional discussion and idea, however very plausible granted the one from Alien Planet is also very different, being two legged. Good idea for a species as this thing would be able to perform very quick turns and looks like it would give some predators a run for their luck.

On the microbe idea by Dragon, that is a sneaky little amoeba, I am curious, what happens to it if it was to get into a species that was fully developed? Ie entered through the mouth, nose, ears, anus, urethra, or even an open wound? would it die or would if somehow do something in the body? Take Naegleria fowleri , that thing gets in you, you start getting some serious issues ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naegleria_fowleri For those who don't know who this is. )

Thanks for the compliment Paradox, I didn't know about that. Come to think of it, I didn't really think about what would happen if it did. It would probably just act like it normally does, eating the other microbes it comes across, although its bioluminescent spots would probably be useless inside another organism. So the effects would probably vary depending on where the amoeba goes.
