I'm to assume we're headed to Exburna? I can't wait to introduce a bunch of new species. Though, I'm having trouble coming up with Flora. Also, I haven't come up with names for them all yet. And, I think Exburnans and Sozard would have been desended from panther-like or tiger-creatures, but are similar to Exburnans. Also, I wanna introduce three other species. One is a small cute little creature, despite being gross in appearance, that share traits with dogs, and are kept in cities not just as pets, but they are somehow good at warding off other creatures, carnivorous, parasite and insectoid like. And I was thinking about parasite-like creatures, about as big as stuffed animals, and though can be deadly, are also prey to many creatures, and rarely reach adult stage, where they become giant elephant sized creatures that breed like crazy, but are rare, and can only defend themselves using their legs.

All these, and they are only natural creatures. How about artificial creatures? I have tons of ideas for those, both full biological and partially mechanical. Exburnans are even crazy enough to try fabricating dinosaurs. >:D

Of course, obviously they wont all play important roles, more of just mentions. Maybe somebody could pick up a couple weapons, an even a pet :P

I've always been trying to think of some kind of theory in this roleplay that would explain why most of all the intelligent aliens discovered so far are so easily described as Humanoids. Even Rokunam picks up traits such as that, and had his race gone through normal evolution, they could have ended up human-like as well. I'm going with the cosmic ray theory, how evolution works in jumps caused by cosmic rays that effect any developing lifeform. That, combined with the likeliness that most planets are carbon based. Carbon based planets have creatures that look similar to ours on earth, having two eyes, an even number of limbs, a head, a brain, common variables like that, (likewise with how plants use photosynthesis and are usually green and common variables like that). So, these two factors make sense. Though, Exburnan creatures are usually different. I suppose the planet is probably Carbon based along with some other element, that's why there are some similarities between Exburnan and other creatures, but many other factors are different. Most Exburnan creatures have an odd amount of limbs. Many Exburnan creatures have many eyes, usually of different sizes and of strange coloration, and a pattern between many creatures is that most creatures will have brown, brownish-red or brownish green skin (Exburnans, etc.) while others will have a lighter shade of lime green to yellowish green (Sozards, Ringer Hounds, etc.).

Anyway, a point I'm trying to get at, is really, the connection between the wildlife of different planets. I'm just trying to come up with a theory to explain why they are similar, and furthermore, why humanoid creatures of different planets look similar. Carbon and Cosmic disturbances sound dandy, but, what if there is something further into it than that? What if there is a reason for the relationship, such as maybe human-like aliens occupying different planets, maybe the same kind that Rokunam and the Exburnans refer to as deities and gods (I'll mention something about it later on in the roleplay, like Rokunam reciting an old tale or something) which happen to look similar to your typical Roswell alien, which do have humanoid traits. And furthermore, what if, whatever the reason for the similarity in different humanoids is, it has something to do with the supposedly destroyed/missing/lost Earth?

In a past roleplay I made fun of this problem by claiming there were many Earths and humans evolved independently on all of them. This explained away that different players had incompatible histories of humanity, while raising many more questions.

It does make some sense that tool-making creatures from Earth-like planets will tend to look at least somewhat similar to humans (though in reality this probably is false). However genetic compatibility (different species being able to have children with each other) while closely related species from the same planet (like humans and chimpanzees) are not compatible makes no sense at all. (Note that Saein has had exactly that thought some pages back :D )
Of course Dlew being full of spinning gears also doesn’t make sense, so perhaps we shouldn’t demand that everything makes sense.

I guess humanoid similarity to the point of genetic compatibility can only be explained by there being or having been gods or godlike beings. We are those gods in some sense, but introducing another species that introduced life everywhere could be a nice way to handwave away the nonsense we created. They could even be humans that time traveled from the future.
