No I'm not. I'm from South Africa, not Canadia.

The bolded statement where you're saying something about one of my posts are needed for something...

NOTE: Only the white around the human colonies are part of the area of human habitation. I also just explained to Aletrius that even that is only where the Xen'vi don't mind humans being.


In other words, there are some scattered campsites and such in those areas, but in general most humans only live in the six colonies marked on the map.

Interesting so very few humans are accepted into the Xen'vi Society. Containment policy.

I am pretty sure most vehicles have three wheels by the humans, and I imagine most of the bigger ones to be amphibious and able to hover.

And I thought TV's policy of "Little to few human military presence" applied still.

We don't have a big military presence, it's not like we have tanks and stuff. Just a few standard vehicles and some guns to defend ourselves with.

Yeah colonizers brought just enough... but that was still more than what the Indigenous had... then promptly wiped most of them out within a hundred years. Whoops.

1 Mini-gun = 1000 muskets as it takes approximately a minute to reload a Musket. Just saiyan.

Anyway. This is a couple hundred years in the future... Miniguns are sooo 1900's. No disrespect Mr. Gatlin. Gunpowder is sooo 1600's. I recommend Electromagnetic weapons, or those Electric rocket powered guns.

You can have it for all care, but remember its warm-up time if you start shooting at rampaging beasts. You'll be mauled and eaten before you can get enough of the small slow rounds in the beast to take it down.

Do we have to go over the weapons argument again? The human presence on Novusvita is strictly non-aggressive.

Should we start working on the Iga'vi capital city, and the [sea people] capital city.I would draw it, but I have little clue to what it looks like... And it would probably look like Early London.

I personally always imagined the Iga'vi as being similar to an industrialized Aztec Empire... minus the religious parts (human sacrifice ect.). And I think im having Deja Vu... have I mentioned this before?

The Iga'ij (see the "Name Improvements" (or something) thread) are sort of like that, but with the religious parts.
