It is the year 212 AXW: the Great War that ravaged the galaxy of Xerxes has given way to contentious peace. One of the legendary heroes of the war, Arcturo Rave, now presides over Xerxes as the High King. His influence, though considerable, is barely containing a galaxy divided.

 


Much of the conflict stems from two age-old adversaries: the humanoid Errans of House Rave in Sector 4, and the lizard-like Draconians in Sector 1. To defuse the tension, Draconian Count Vorakia Estuuban wishes to merge two of the most influential houses from Sector 1 and Sector 4 through the marriage of Princess Ellemine Rave (daughter of the High King) and Prince Chad Zephyr (son of Lord Falric Zephyr). The High King approves of this union between the Errans of House Rave in Sector 4 and the Humans of House Zephyr in Sector 1. However, the Count may have an agenda of his own for this marriage, and may not have the best interest of the galaxy in mind. Could House Zephyr simply be a puppet of the Draconian Count in this union?

Humans
Humans are an ever-evolving species. For a race that started from primitive humans with apelike features, they have now drastically evolved. It was a great wonder throughout all of Xerxes that the Humans were able to evolve themselves over the years. They now have symmetrical bodily proportions with great features. The Humans' intellectual capacity has improved over the years as well. Now, only time will tell what the Humans are going to be like in the far future.

Errans
Errans are the inhabitants of Sector 4. They have humanoid features and are identified for their hair-color with hues that range from sapphire blue to emerald green. Erran's source of food is the natural vegetation of Erra and Orion. Some Errans are born with psychic powers. They are called “Ciphers”. Some Errans on the other hand aren't born with psychic powers. Non-cipher Errans are given the opportunity to study at the Granian Research Facility of Sector 2 or to join the Erran Vanguard. This happens when they reach 25. In Erran tradition, it is said that the rightful heir to the throne must always be a child born as a Cipher. If a King's first born is not a Cipher, but his second is, then the second child shall be chosen, regardless of age and gender. Erran Royalty is also very strict at keeping their royal children's identity a secret from the Galaxy. This is only until they are engaged and married.

Draconians
The Draconians have reptilian features. They have hard scales and strong bodies. Their kin are very competitive when it comes to power and authority. They have access to the most advanced technologies up to date, thanks to the help of the Grays at the Granian Research Facility in Sector 2. It was rumored that the Draconians eat human babies as food, but was long debunked by Count Vorakia Estuuban himself. The count specifically mentioned that they would never betray their own people, Draconians and Humans alike. What is known for now is that the Draconians only eat raw animal meat for food.

Granians (Grays)
Granians are extremely telepathic beings. They communicate with others using their minds. They are also very intellectual. It has been a mystery that they are able to work together in perfect unison for their advancements. Granians work with one mind and are able to achieve much technological advancement. They have skins with hues ranging from pale white to gray. They have huge oval shaped eyes and their bodies are small and frail.

ZI3CyCd.png
Gulanians (Greens)
The Gulanians, unlike the Granians, are not telepathic beings. They speak with their tongues like most beings in the Galaxy do. They are more focused on excavations, archeology and manual labor. This makes them the perfect partner for the Granians. Gulanians have the same physical features as the Granians with their small, frail bodies and huge oval shaped eyes. The only difference is that their skin is green.

XAGp7XK.png
Kunians
Kunians are humanoid beings with cat-like features. They have very agile bodies and strong senses. The Kunians are rich in culture and are very spiritual beings. The Kunians are the only ones preserving the practice of "Calline" in all of Sector 3. Calline is a tradition among the Kuni where an individual reaching the age of 20 is given the chance to take a soul-searching journey alone around the galaxy and bring honor to their kind.

JyQANcF.png
Farians
The Farians are humanoid beings that are identified for their purple skin and hair color that have hues ranging from purple to pink. Most Farians are involved with occultism and witchcraft. They are infamous for the usage of hexes, curses and charms that are driven by criminal intentions. Still, not all Farians are involved with criminal intentions. The occult practices, however, have long been a cultural stigma on their species. Many Farians work underground in Kardel to create devastating hexes and curses with malicious purposes.

JKXlSlT.png
Somaki
The Somaki is an enigmatic race with unknown origins; they're usually seen wearing suits of armor that cover their faces. Their purpose in this sector is unknown. Their body-shape is humanoid in nature and is really muscular. They are usually found lurking in underground areas of the planets in Sector 3. Though there hasn’t been any news of the Somaki causing trouble as of late, still, the people of Sector 3 are very cautious of their presence.

Hi Chibi!! Thank you so much and I'm very happy you enjoyed the game! ^_^ Your help in making me improve this game is also not forgotten and is greatly appreciated up to this very day! XD :D

Personally I would have used the word "Alfar" rather then "Aryan". The word "Aryan" has somewhat of a... bad reputation. Especially when used to refer to a race that is in some way 'superior' to base humans. Though maybe that's the whole point? Anyway they seem more like Alfar then they do Aryans from what I have seen, but that's not much.

 

(Also, I still find it amusing whenever humans reference the idea of 'The Greys'/'Little Green Men'. All the UFO stuff really. Silly humans. Little strange aliens from another planet haven't be abducting you. It's been us fairies the whole time. We have been doing it for a loooong time. Just look at how similar the UFO abduction stories are to legends about fairies. We even both mess with cattle a lot.)

Hi @Kayzee! Thank you so much for checking out the game and for sharing your concerns regarding the naming of the Aryan race. :)

 

This has actually already been a huge discussion on the Discord servers on other forums! XD And I've already concluded to stick by the name. ;)

 

I know you and other people here who are curious and haven't participated in that discussion deserve to know my reasoning, so I'll copy-pasta my post on RMN regarding this issue. ^_^

 

Thanks so much for bringing that up! As this gives me an opportunity to answer this concern here in my page for other people who are curious with the usage of the term. :) In the very decision that I used the term "Aryan", I actually was referencing the real life alien species "Pleiadians" :) Since their alternate name was also "Aryan" as seen here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_alleged_extraterrestrial_beings

 

I drew inspiration from the Pleiadians as an alien race for their peaceful and loving nature, as well as their very spiritual and technologically advanced traits. :)

It was only until this was heavily discusses on the Discord servers, when one of the members (Drass) kindly notified me of the negative connotations of the term. 😮 I was heavily shocked, since I never knew that until then. :( X( After heavy research and discussions with the members of discord, I came to a final decision, that I will continue using the term "Aryan". :)

 

My reasoning was: 

1. I do not want to give in to the Nazis reality that they own the term or that they think it is the perfect race that humans should become. 

2. The Nazis no longer have power over anyone in this world, for, they are long gone and their horrors buried with them. 

3. I wish to recover the honor of the term, wherein it was used as an alternate term for the "Pleiadians", an alien race that was far from the evil Nazis in the first place. I read a lot of books about the alien races when I was a child, this is why it is a heavy influence on me and the development of this game. :)

 

In the end, I will still take part of my responsibility in making a disclaimer that no terms are used as a means of offending nor looking down on anyone of a specific group or ethnicity. :)

 

Hope this helps clear things up, Kayzee! ^_^ Oh! And if only I knew it was the Fairies all along, I would've added a fairy alien race xDD :D

Hehe, I agree actually, the word gets a bad rap. Though my reasoning is a bit different. Historically Aryan referred to Indo-Iranians, and I have no idea where the whole blue eyed blond haired nordic thing came from. It's funny, cause 'Pleiadians' are just as much obviously really Ljósálfar (light elves) as greys are obviously fairies, so it's a bit silly to name them after people who lived in Iran.


Hehe, don't get me wrong, I don't mind that the old legends live on in a new modern form. Heck the full version of my name (no it's not my 'True Name' just a longer version of my commonly used one), Kayzee Lalee'lay Lalilulelo, contains a reference to the greens/greys. Or really a reference to a reference to the greens/greys. Anyway, I don't dislike that humans think of us as aliens now. It's not like we aren't aliens of a sort, we just live in a different 'dimension', not a different planet. There is a difference. :P I just wish the new form were more flattering. Plain and grey or green? No no no... We need style! How come Pleiadians get to be pretty and not us? This is more like what I want to see!

Thanks for your input, Kayzee! ^_^ And yes! I also forgot to mention that the term did have some Indo-Iranian origin xD So it's weird that some group of evil people think they immediately own the term referring the blond haired, blue eyed nordic people. xD :P

 

Btw, I'm also all for giving fairies their own pretty modern day form! xD ^_^ I actually think that Alien fairy pic you linked is very pretty! ❤️ Would be a nice iteration than the greens/grays indeed! :D And yes, I guess living in a different dimension does make humans think of you as aliens. xD Even though your kind were always the ones responsible for the "alien" abductions :D

Hehe, though really we have been around and living on Earth for hundreds or thousands of years before we were pushed back to our own realms, partly at the hands of humans (mostly Christians really, we coexisted with humans for quite a while). Plus if another 'dimension' counts can be vague don't you think? Just cause humans can only sense and navigate in 3D dosn't mean other beings are as restricted. There could be a whole other world right there that you can't see just because you don't know how to turn your head in that direction. It might be that something could be standing just kata of you and you wouldn't even know. Maybe if they are feeling playful you might see or hear something strange for a moment, but when you look around nothing seems to be there because they are juuuust outside the 3D space you know. You will never be able to see them or touch them as long as they stay that way. But they can still see you, can reach into 3D space anytime they want, anywhere they want. It would only take a little touch inside you to mess things up wouldn't it? Have fun with that thought. :P

 

Anyway, I wish you luck on this game and any and all of your other projects too! *sprinkles fairy dust on you*

Oh my!! It is indeed quite a wonderful thought that your wonderful kind could just be around my house glee-fully playing in 4th dimension. ❤️ xD :) Hmm! I wonder what would happen if I can peek into that realm? XD :D  Maybe my house is actually an enchanted fairy-tale forest in the 4th dimension. xD :D Though I must admit, I do feel otherworldly presence quite a lot. ;) So maybe that's why I'm very curious and amazed by your kind. xD

 

Oh! And thank you so much, Kayzee! :D The sprinkles of fairy dust is greatly appreciated! It will definitely help fuel my motivation/inspiration to continue finishing this game. ^_^
