The Bushraki, Wetwiring, and Mindsims
I just published some fairly extensive history on the Bushraki, from whom we get wetwiring and mindsims both. Once tools of the Sa’hak-ren Hierarchy, and later unwittingly duped by the Ishvana, they’re a tragic, broken race of unstable, cybernetically-enhanced, drug-addicted humanoids whose genes indicate that they’re an incredibly old race, though they only reached spaceflight a couple thousand years ago. A real fun bunch to party with, right up until one of them, all hopped up on whisper dust or glitter decides to it’d be fun to see what kind of sound you make if she reaches down and slices your achilles tendon or decides to make you dance, Goodfellas-style.
Head on over to the NPC Races page to read about them, and the important role they’ve played in Starmourn history. You’ll also learn where wetwiring and mindsim tech came from!
Bushraki are probably now my favorite NPC race. Also, this explains so much about a quite a few ambiguities in the previous lore. Love Love Love!
What an impressive backstory. It almost makes me wish they were PC races, but the whole ‘exiles everywhere’ would make it a poor experience for people who wanted to cooperate with others.
It’s soo good, though these lore reveals that are teasing features are making me want to find out more about what we’ll actually have in the game.
Is there any chance of a feature reveal at all? Ooh, and could we maybe get some forums going to have a central place to gush/fanperson over everything?
We’ll have forums at some point, but it’s premature at the moment just because we don’t want to spend time we could spend developing the game on managing the forums, which is inevitably going to be the case. I’d say, and I’m just guessing here because we haven’t planned it out, that you could expect forums to open in around 6 months.
Now I need to add the Bushraki… http://oi64.tinypic.com/2qv6y4z.jpg
This is super cool, is it for a game?
I made the Shen in Spore! XD
Stellaris on Steam. I’ve added all the Starmourn races as best as I can. For some reason my Elgan are extremely powerful…
Ha, that’s awesome!
Hooray for Cyberzombies!
