Niyames wasn't stupid enough to plug himself into a beta-version hnangha; dangerous, and if it failed everyone would be united against him. so he used a puppet, Agnasi, to enslave the children of the Larentili.

 the plan was for it to conquer the other four major nations, and then he would quietly replace Agansi at the helm. That last part...didn't work out as planned, partially due to a certain Angry daughter of his (still alive, actually), but Niyames is nothing if not persistant, and decided to wait for a chance to try again.

Agnasi himself was just a brain-dead orphan hooked up to a machine.
Hnangha was his lifesupport, still tied to it's main function, despite it's growing sapience (from the minds of the dead) and size (from the bodies of the dead)

I won't go into the Four because they don't really matter to this synopsis. Though they have a pretty important part to the plot as well.

Niyames would kill Agnasi near the end and start the procces to take his place. Hnangha would then fill him with all the pain he had been saving up for the last thirty odd years, to slow him down before complete takeover.
At this point, it would all depend on the actions you took and had taken throughout the story. I though of at least five possible outcomes. Ultimate bad one, You could fail to stop him (or, if you hadn't figured it out, perhaps protected him), and he would become a recurring enemy, devouring worlds with his Machines and Iavolg.

ultimate good ending, you stop him, freeing Hnangha and the Larentili, and the whole team and the Four get to live

Thats...Pretty much it. I knew it was over, really, I just really wanted to tell my big story before it died entirely. alright then. And its not a beginning, This is over. Though it really did help solidify my ideas into full-blown worlds. And for that I will say thanks.

So yea, if you where wondering (you werent, unless your Yuu), near the end of that RP you where going to discover that Niyames was the bad guy all along: he controlled Agnasi and Agnasi controlled Hnangha. and hopefully you would have figured this out in time through various clues, and ultimately you would deside their fates.

So I think i'll just say how it was supposed to end, seeing as this isn't going to work.

Yea, how old are they exactly? "watch stars turn" old, Or "watch stars die" old?

Yay, maybe someone else will post next month!

I think I made it sound too evil.

Oclus is Chaotic neutral at worst. An entire nation, uthumusad, holy city was formed around it, literaly.  
22% of Graid belive Oclus is important in their lives deaths, technicaly, seeing as it's a death god, associated with caves and water.

Mind if I get a tad dramatic here? Ok.

Under the Stone and the Air, decended from silent river.

Broken rock across the glass hills
Gray cloak from brook in steady fields (East)
Unchosen Bearer of wind and vile tide (West)
Nomad rider in blackened valley snow (North)
Indebted Flier upon burning cliffs (South)

Stray from the water, follow the calls of the wind and sing with the Earth

The therais, having no vocal cords, replied in sign language.

"Our kinds, it depends on caste. When the body fails, we go to other place, have a second life. Spirit world, you would call it. New duties must be done. Niras burried under master's hall, defend against enemies. Inthriki go to the sea, guide travelers, traders, soldiers. Therais, like me, are burned in their homeland, provide knowledge and strength to living. Hiraak are entombed on the island of guardians, preserve seperation between place of body and place of spirit. If one's duties of spirit are carried out, they allow passage back to place of body. Rebirth."

"But... not sure I believe the old ways. Still, this place is unatural, holds onto the dead, would stop the spirits from moving to other place. Bad either way"

9  The Lounge / General Kosmosis / Re: Languages on: January 20, 2012, 01:20:30 am
hmm. several things to cover.

first is structure. The graid's classic Language, ashadic and it's dialects, is made almost entirely of single sylable words strung together without pause, with the subject usualy at the start. A full phrase  in english can be a single word in Ashadic.

"I donít have a home


Al; self
ak; live
Em; place
Shir; lacking

As for the actual vocalization the graid have an extremely wide range, being a hearing intensive race (having no smell, taste, limited touch, and no depth perseption), so they can 'commonize' their words and speaking voice to better match the listener. In a natural state, dealing with their own kind their voices are much more... gutteral. Which is no surpise, considering they are a very animalistic race, not born into sapience.

commonized, Their name can be said like 'grade' rolling the R. closer to the origional would be a slow growl, almost a croak from the very back of your throat, starting low and moving up to the tip of the toungue, going higher. but it would be a stretch to speak it like they do, and you must also sing while speaking ashadic.

EDIT: also, a language of bars or number is a terrible, boring idea.
10  The Galactic Codex / The Civilization Codex / Re: Graid on: January 16, 2012, 01:52:34 am
I thought I already answered that. They would kill it.

Oclus, stone shaper, death granter, Thulithotle-Yalertopec, lies murmering in the dark. In his resting place, the akdosom do not go...With one exception.

This individual is one of the strangest inhabitants of dosomphos. Search the archives of the great librarian, Kerechus, but you will find little on him. He is the second speaker and the charged of the eternal rime. He is a thing of folklore, the death-touched. many tales describe a cloaked figure of gray. While his stories (at least the traditional ones) are rarely of viciousness or brutality, there is an unmistakable feeling of malevolence felt in them.

still, the scholar and teacher Alevian has met the man personally. But neither he nor his partner Rcalde will say anything of the matter.

Let me simplify this: their god gave them mortality. They killed their god. Then they made a deal with him to secure their freedom from an enemy.  some time later one of them entered their god's grave; He was changed. I've already told the next part of the story, though I have yet to tell it's conclusion.

Yea, I knew. Just giving you a hard time.
12  The Galactic Codex / The Historical Codex / Re: Complete World History of the O'ka on: January 15, 2012, 02:28:09 pm
But... but you just showed that the apostrophe is meaningless!
13  The Lounge / General Kosmosis / Re: Terran[?] on: January 15, 2012, 02:26:13 pm
Makes sense. Not really an issue for us. Photos are humanoid, larentili are just bipedal salamanders, and perrachi are...parrots.

Things from earth don't exist, so earthlike is meaningless, just a little tame. Also, it means that extranious apostrophes and such make even less sense, seeing as its a translation and there is no english language.
14  The Galactic Codex / The Civilization Codex / Re: Graid on: January 15, 2012, 12:53:49 am

Hey, what's silly about a giant alien black space octopus with power of rock and metal?

Oclus granted death to the Stone. The Stone, angered at its newfound mortality, gave death to Oclus in turn. The resulting catastrophy tore down civilization. Thus ends the first cycle.

The mortal earth, akdosom regrew in time. And grew. Eventualy, it covered the spiral of the dark sky, a Radial power, Infinite. It would not last forever, though. Eventualy another people came, called only daveresh. Daveresh came and the akdosom's radial power was put out.
thus ends the second cycle.

The Akdosom would not stay fallen. They called upon oclus. Though dead, his echo lingered. They asked him to bring down the daveresh. He agreed, but in return he demanded an unknown payment, to be exacted at an unknown time. Akdosom accepted his terms. The daveresh were cast down and sent away.
Thus ends the third cycle.

of the fourth cycle, little is spoken.

And now we come to the fifth cycle. Oclus, death granter, stirs in his earthen hollow. Unkown to the akdosom, he has already exacted his payment.

Of course, these are just stories. Exept for the enourmous corpse under uthumasad

That would make me happy. Wish badger would come back. And I know your out there, UFO.
