Much of the information relates to secret meetings and events, so Gamemasters can make adventures out of seeking such secrets from those esternals. Even their most common forces leave legacies that take decades to overcome.
Gamemasters can move their campaigns in many directions as we put the Externals at center stage and show the face of the enemy. The initial damage—which can be as long-lasting as Gamemasters desire for their campaigns—creates a schism of trust between the fraal and all other species, as their origins and intentions now become suspect as their racial brethren lead the External threat.
To extermals barem, modesty should always take a secondary place to maintaining order among the servants and slaves.

Many of the External species seem to be armed with oddly shaped and constructed weapons grown or built out of organic materials rather than what we normally recognize as weapons technology. Most evrem bide their time in their Evremmar their four claimed systems at the heart of League territories teaching those who seek their wisdom.
Sacred, holy used for people, ideas and concepts—living things. Each subordinate subset is repeated under each rank unless noted otherwise. Thus, while the power of the nobility is still recognized, it is less significant to the Exeat than are the religious and military contributions and efforts. The fourth planet occupies a wide elliptical orbit and is in effect an icebound rock with little of interest to human or External alike.

However, nearly any personal weapons or defenses available to upper echelons of VoidCorp could be incorporated into a magus bioform, replacing the dark energy weapon with another or increasing its armor or other skills. A person of the highest power in the Theocracy.
One cannot cross their paths unless he bows his eyes beneath the notice of the thaal often becoming full bows, not just averted eyes. Unlike fraal, the ultra-religious thaal perceive of psionics as gifts only bestowed upon the faithful.
The asteroid belt also provides a wide range of resources for normal sifarv ship building, which takes place either on major planetoid bodies within the belt or in their orbital shipyards around Fhare see below. The Star Drive Campaign Setting book is hardbound with pages illustrated in color. This cobaltblue feathered woman wears a number of kadaran cybiotech implants including a dark plasma cannon on her left arm.
Gamemasters can reveal information about the Externals in a number of different ways. Generically, it can refer to individual sifarv, thaal, and gardhyi, though it accommodates other species of mirnak rank or better individual bareem, etc.
In order of release the books are:. For now, while she tries to warn the vurhonan and others of the faith, smokescreens, and political plays by Vurhyr Kasahl and Arak Chela negate any real chance she has of derailing the Exeat. Sifarv design their clothes and architecture and ships all with a need for freedom of movement for their wings.
Four or six nobles answer to each patnak, each exhernals the title of paratak.
At the far end of the Verge, alien species unheard of before the Second Galactic War have begun to stir.
A noth can rule a landbound cathedral or command carriers and lesser ships, and at least one noth and as many as four answer to each xenoth. This skill cannot be used untrained or without an osar crystaff. Of all the species they know, only the blix, the deepfallen, the thaal, and they themselves come close to such powers.
Below are several possibilities that could be formed from rumors: However, while they show no gross physical differences from the fraal, this species shows a greater propensity toward psionic power and less physical acuity.
Kadaran scientists developed cybertech, though their biotech focus makes it appear more like parasitic lifeforms than invasive technology. However, they are as removed from social significance in the eyes of the Exeat as are mere kroath. While Kadar truly leads the Exeat, more agents of many External species personally answer to Vurhyr due to the long-term mission given them.
The only slave species seen by humans are the klicks, though there are dozens more under the heel of the Theocracy though few of them are technologically advanced enough to escape. The most exasperating thing about Martis is his incessant chatter, which continues even while he sleeps.
Sifarv embrace all types of character professions and occupations, though to varying degrees. While the war rages around them and many Lucullans go to the conversion camps and unwillingly become kroath under the watchful eyes of the kadarans, the clusters inhabiting Helixtech executives have slowly and carefully funneled corporate assets and monies into transportable goods and ships.
There are no thaal children with the Exeat, though the younger thaal adults are marked by their almost glowing skin and eyes which dull and mute themselves beneath wrinkles and age later on. Bareem choose rarely to kill opponents unless so ordered or during war. They exist as pirates in a small fleet whose main base has never been located by any species, External or otherwise. As has been their tactic and purpose for centuries, bareem can be dropped as infantry onto a planet, and they all single-mindedly stalk and enslave the major bioforms on any planet to which they are introduced.
The virus breaks down certain neural pathways, DNA strands, and protein groups, which are then invaded by technological nanites to replace those areas with self-replicating cybernetic circuitry. The thaal live and work among numerous species, just like the Builder fraal, though they retain a sense of superiority over all of them, including their allied sifarv oligarchs.
Human history hints of links to the gardhyi, but none of those links reveal much about their role now in the Verge due to one simple fact: Major battle group with armor support. This bonus works only when a kadaran applies more than three limbs and at least two eyes to the task at hand.
At rank 8, this ability extends to include En damage. For all intents and purposes, they are living weapons that destroy any foes at which their masters point them. There are always more problems and mysteries to solve, especially now among all these new species they have yet to examine. Rather than repeat all the preexisting references for all External species to date, below is a table that provides the first encounters and previous reference for more details.
