Species: Wormhole
Subspecies: Unstable wormhole
Size: 5x5m
Diet: -
Physical Description: A whirling mass of darkness darker than the night sky. Peering at it is akin to peering into the abyss. Only the lightening of the darkness marks its passage.
Narrative Description: Wormholes have always fascinated physicists. Theories abound as to what happens when they collapse or where they lead to but no one ever thought to ask if they were sentient.

Narrative Description: The Kalamari, unlike its psionic kin, has no psionic powers. When provoked, it spits jet-black ink at its aggressor, a move that only infuriates its foe even more. It is however, an avid explorer and travels the galaxy far and wide in search of lost artifacts. A chance encounter with this squid-like creature can yield unexpected wares.
So, I think that we have to tread lightly with this entry...all things considered. Oh, and this too. Anyway, here's a sketch-up. Remember, this is a first take. Specific characters could look dramatically different. For example, this guy is mad. Another portrait might show members of this species as more sly, devious...wearing clothing!

It was definitely a shameless rip-off of D&D mind-flayers but i didn't realise Star Wars have that name too

The War Shadow

Here's another creature from the game, for inspiration:


Species: War Shadow
SubSpecies (if any): NA
Size: medium
Diet: carnivore
Physical Description: These serpentine creatures have several sets of vestigial claw-limbs that can propel them along the ground at great speeds. They are barely visible in the dark, save for their glowing green eyes.
Narrative Description: A common pakall military tactic is to release hundreds of these creatures into enemy camps at night, throwing them into chaos before an attack.

That would be awesome. I'd love to do a spacecraft sim: "...Traveling between GK modules becomes an adventure unto itself!"
