The system of Xamell is home to fifteen different planets. The fifth planet is
inhabited by a sentient race which has never been seen (they are about 2.5
meters tall, very thin, and pale. Also have glide wings like a flying squirrel).
The only contact with this culture has been with their ships, which are sleek
organic looking ships (in fact, they are organic. Avorsar has a very caustic
atmosphere, and metals degrade very quickly. The ships are actually grown in
vats. They are a genetically altered native life form that can now deal with the
rigors of space). When encountered, the ships usually fire a warning shot while
demanding that the invading ship leaves the area. It is obvious that this race
is highly xenophobic. They have never made contact with other life forms.
GM note: The planet has a very caustic atmosphere. The native life forms have
adapted to this environment and are not harmed by extremely acidic environments.
Forgoing equipment will be subject to a 40 attack for every turn in the
environment (shields do not help). People will be subject to the same damage,
but remember that this is damage on a starship scale. Eventually, event the
strongest ship will succumb to this atmosphere.
GM note: There are many Avorsarians who believe that it is time to begin to
learn about the other races of the galaxy. There is a small group that wants to
capture and test aliens (one thing that they do not realize is that other races
can not live in a caustic environment). Others of the population believes that
they should make peaceful contact and begin to study. Even with their slight
build, the Avorsarians are competitive, and will only ally themselves with those
that seem strong and competitive (making them very prone to imperial influence).
GM note: This planet has a very heavy gravity, so on other worlds they
will be able to jump a great distance, and will appear as stronger than when
they are on their native world (this is very unusually since they have a slight
build. Most high gravity worlds have very short stocky inhabitants. The
Avorsarians are lithe and have the ability to glide).
GM note: They have a wonderful array of biotech, but they are lacking in a great
deal of "technology."
