I wouldn't want to mess with one. A common observation about chickens is 'who decided someone who was a coward was a chicken? Have you ever met a chicken? They will mess you up'. This applies to your run of the mill evolved from therapod poultry.

I have two thoughts for that, one is that the Transformers counted time in cycles and megacycles, but I am not sure if they ever explained just long 4 megacycles was, and if that was actually a long time for the transformers. The other thought is that the modern nomenclature for computers and computer technology are going to be so obsolete it is going to be comparing tying knots and fixing sails, and then using the terminology and trying to launch a space shuttle with it.

The beefcake and cheesecake are somewhat meta but in no relation to any specific system, but rather traditional fantasy art, ala cheesecake fantasy like Red Sonja, and Boris Vallejo, and Frazetta. This could also very easily apply to 99% of comic book artists. Go to Comment
I really like this idea, because it allows you to delve into color and background material, the sort of stuff that makes for deeper connections with the character without contributing to their ability to function as 'murder hobos'.
Instead of a sword, the swordsman is gifted with a fine scabbard. The heroes are toasted and have a feast thrown in their favor. The local bard composes a epic in their name, while a group of minstrels put together a stage play of the hero's last campaign, with a few touches and flare and mistakes. Go to Comment
Not so much flight as hovering via a-pods, but yes. They can move between planets in matter of days or weeks, but this is as much a function of where the planets are at the time of the flight as much as it is how fast they are.
I can see there being travel seasons, you travel to Mars on the 2-3 months when Earth is swinging around and is on the same side of the Solar system as the red planet, bingo for Jupiter. For points further out you are going to be waiting for the right alignment of the middle planets to slingshot around them, or use them as wayfare or refuel and reprovision points.
Generally the inner system is a matter of a few days, Mars and Jupiter a few weeks, and points further out are a month or more away Go to Comment
These humanoids have flesh that resembles a peeled orange or other citrus fruit: semi-translucent with prominent veins. Brightly colored, some Rutaceaens are orange, some are yellow, and some green. They prefer warm climates with lots of rainfall.
