The Nekron: A New Take on Drow
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Underground)
Scrasamax's comment on 2005-11-18 01:11 PM
Nekron Technology
Being an elder race, the nekron have rather advanced, but not exaggeratedly advanced technology compared to the other races. Living in a subterranean enviroment, surviving in a thermal driven biosphere, they have easy access to both large amounts of natural heat and raw materials.

The Nekron, with their access to thermal vents and magma veins are easily able to reduce ore to liquid metal. It is a small step to introduce bellows to blow oxygen through a crucible, replicating the bessemer process, or the blast furnace. Nekron steel is likely to be one of the best grades of steel available. If the dwarves knew, they would be sick with envy. With this abundance of steel, Nekron warriors are always clad in full metal armor, often llamelor, or scale armors, and some articulated plate armors. Given the high grade of the metal used, these armors are likely much lighter than surface comparable, and also likely to be stronger, and more resistant to corrosion.

Weapons are also heavy with metal. Picks might be the predominant weapon as they have mining connotations, but given the elder status of the race, all weapon types could reasonably be encountered. They would likely use bone, or shell from vent worms and such for the hafts and handles of weapons, but it would make pole arms, and regular bows very rare as such large pieces would be either very rare, or prohibitively expensive. Enter the Arbalest, or steel crossbow. The weapon is 99% metal, and packs a heavy punch, able to defeat armors at short range with ease.

Combat is going to dominated by individuals of exceptional skill at arms. The Nekron would not field large armies as subterranean enviroments offer insufficient room to maneuver, and too many places for bottlenecks and other impediments. In small unit actions, they wuold be nigh unstoppable. Downside, they have poor morale, and there is little fervor in battle. The Nekron are more interested in holding what they have rather than expanding their domains. Go to Comment

The Martyred God, A nice touch. I like the lack of Dogma demonstrated by Aduivo them being more practical than philosophical Go to Comment

For such a cool name, I was expecting more from this submission. From a historical perspective it has merit and perhaps there could be a mundane Oriental scroll/codex generated for this weapon and the others. Go to Comment

It is really a shame that this Master Codex has not received much in the way of love. Thumbs up and a great idea. Go to Comment

Now I am mortified and ashamed that this scroll has escaped my attention for so long. Perhaps I can make amends somehow... Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2005-11-16 04:36 PM
This is a bit too cliche for my tastes. Aside from being stupid and having a penchant for hitting things with his stick, there isnt too much about Ugg to seperate him from the typical ogre/half ogre bashy type opponent. There could be some sort of foil, or counterpoint to his simple and brutal nature. Perhaps he is a collector of things, children's toys, pressed flowers, something very non-threatening. Perhaps he is greatly concerned about a particular person, or class of people's wellbeing? The first bit of inspiration I got from Ugg was Forrest Gump. Maybe that might help a bit. Go to Comment

Many questions...

What is a Bushi-Killian Warrior?

What is the Quad-Cut style?

What race is he to have been one of three viable hatchlings?

Why does he have a Korean name?

Why is he a relentless, dedicated slayer of men? Go to Comment

The biggest concern that comes to mind is that Crunk is half ogre, and half orck. Now mind you I have no problem with this combination as I imagine it would produce one heck of a monster. Combining the general intelligence of the typical orck with the size and strength of the substancially less intelligent ogre. Unfortunately, the fact that Crunk is a runt, and a perpetual omega wolf. He makes me think more of a goblin that anything else. Go to Comment

interesting idea, nice tie into the religion of Kyren and the link to the sword draw magic is good. Reminds me of a more flashy version of the Ronin Warriors, who also had elemental aspecteda armors. Go to Comment

While upon first glance, this may seem to be little more than some background scenery, I can certainly see uses for it. Perhaps one of the Stellar or true faces has since become some sort of undead, and the only record of their weakness can be found in the original text penned by Dougas himself. Alternately, perhaps some of the chapters are replaced with forgeries, that tell a more politically spin version of a person or event. Go to Comment
