Avoiding Furry Fury

The second Tenuk stepped outside, a massive, furry, clawed hand wrapped itself around his throat. Ct’Era, the heavily-built tank of flesh that she was, sneered as she lifted Tenuk off the ground “You violated us.” “I-I-I j-j-just wanted us all to be happy…” “By violating our minds?” “It was just dopamine…” “Means nothing. You betrayed … Read more

Pictures from the Phoviverse

For Inktober, I decided to draw things from the Phoviverse. Here’s the 31 things that I drew. Day 1 – Kinisis Kinisis is the personification of the Phoviverse, the universe’s avatar and its creator. Nearly 14 billion years ago, the deity settled down in a little corner of the multiuniverse and gave birth to four … Read more

Talked Into It

“I can’t BELIEVE you are going through with this insane plan!” Tenuk shouted as Retvik put on his armour. “I can’t believe that Skyan convinced you into doing all of this! Elksia I get, you can talk her into eating a sand sandwich if you tell her it’s tasty enough, but YOU? You’re smarter than … Read more

Friendship and Loyalty

“The Lord of the Dead, the God of Misery and Suffering, the Bringer of Death, and you live on an island world covered in pinkish grass and purple rivers?” King Ver had a lot of questions he wanted to ask his new favourite guest. The Lord of the Vrekans had always enjoyed making guests and … Read more

Exploring the Experimental Cassid Labs

“What the fuck is that smell?” Esdee gasped as he activated his gasmask. “Smells like… Like a lot of things died down here…” “I think that is exactly what happened…” Ksidee replied. The D-Class Ksa adjusted his shoulder torch, increasing the range and brightness so both he and his video recorder could see what was … Read more

Macromera Arrangements

It had been a quiet day at the main government offices of Palaestra. Quiet enough that Retvik and Gath were able to have lunch together in peace. It turned out that, because of the recent bad weather across Portalia, a lot of the local Thanatians had decided to hibernate for the winter. That meant that, … Read more

Tale – Whatthefuckistan

“There’s this place I planted a seed for, I really like how it came out, but I’m hesitant to let it spread elsewhere.” “You say that about a lot of things, Kinisis.” “Yes, but this time I mean it. This world I created. Well, not created. Pushed? Prodded? What’s the term?” “I don’t know, you’re … Read more

Thanatian Star Signs

While most species think that luck and superstition are silly, old traditions, the Thanatians still cling on to their ancient, environment-worshipping beliefs. One of the more dominant beliefs is Raptoric Astrology, particularly the twelve star signs which are used to predict fortune at both the hatching and throughout the life of individual Thanatians. Although they … Read more

Religious Groups

Religion is generally frowned upon in the Phoviverse, due to the knowledge of Deitics and events like the Soul Rupture. In many areas, organized religion has pretty much died out, leaving nothing but a few shared beliefs. The only races to actively worship anything are the Thanatians and the Bayvak. The Thanatians believe in a … Read more

Greetings and Kisses

Due to the lack of lips on many Phoviverse species, very few of them actually kiss one another. To show affection, Vrekans knock their pincers together, Banikans bash horns and many other races simply nuzzle one another.  Cassids are known to wrap their necks and tails together, although most social greetings are done in the … Read more

Genders in Panvok

Panvok races are weird when it comes to genders. While the majority of Panvok races generally have females that are larger than males, the Vrekans have larger males who are all-round stronger. Rethans are actually hermaphrodites, having both male and female genitalia, as were a lot of other races related to them. Bayvak are one … Read more

Threavok and early Retha

The Retha are a relatively young race compared to the other dominant species alive currently, only becoming sentient 10 thousand years ago. Before then, they had an intelligence level similar to feral Vahrga, aggressively attacking anything that came near them. They hunted in packs and were often left alone. 50 thousand years ago marks the … Read more

Rethan Stripes

Fun fact. As the Retha are a heavily militarised race, it is important to know the rank of who you are speaking to. The average Retha is normally the average soldier, but all Retha spend three weeks a year doing army duty and honing their skills. Rethan soldiers on duty will have “Stripes” and “Studs” … Read more

Breathing Nitrogen

Vohra, Vreka, and Bayvak all breathe nitrogen. They evolved from bacteria that absorbed nitrogen and converted it into energy. Rather than two large lungs, they have four small lungs that work independently of one another. Due to how common nitrogen is, this has allowed them to expand and colonize many worlds normally unsuitable for other … Read more

Sauric Relationships

Cassids, Banikans and Thanatians are all distantly related to each other. All three species evolved from an early reptilian being similar to cynadonts. While Cassids and Thanatians evolved to be more reptilian and avian-like, Banikans evolved into marsupial beings. Due to their reliance on oxygen, these three races haven’t managed to spread out and colonize … Read more
