Wow, very indepth and complete, I was expecting something shorter, but it just kept going, with mroe and more useful info to paint a complete picture of these parasites. (whcih is a good thing by the way.)
Very veristile and quite nasty, they make for a great take on "space zombie" and excellent example of non carbon based life forms that are truly alien in their outlook and goals.
The multiple evolutionary options are a nice touch, and they can be easily adapted to a fantasy setting with minimal effort.

Excellent stuff, and sure to show up in my upcoming space campaign!
Axel, I have a small request. Can you edit the formatting of the summary for this sub so it's not spaced so far at the top and bottom on the main page? It's nothing huge, it's just irking me in the same way that an image that stretches your screen horizontally does.
It is good that you brought the topic up, but generally, I found applying dice modifiers to love unnecessary - players who care about the characters and NPCs enough to be bothered by the concept of love will act it out - and sometimes deliberately fail rolls; likewise will they succeed without rolling against fear and the like when their loved ones are in danger; often these scenes will be entirely roleplay and no system.
So, good idea, but approach it from a different angle.
