It looks like they forced evolution on a mycon to make him a podship. I would think that the mycon is still alive though. They are quite the tough fungi

What would be a real pain is moving around as a Druuge. Always stuck on chains and hooks, not much room to move about as you please.

Also what about the Kohr-Ah? I mean, judging by teir in-game picture, they must be at least 15-20 feet tall. or long. Do they bond themselves to the ceiling of their ships or what? Along with their piles of bones and 40+ crew, I doubt that leaves much room to frolic about. or do they move at all?

A lot of races appear as if they're immoble.

Some very interesting theories here Smiley

Isn't it possible that the Umgah genetically modified themselves to be blobbies? They sure enjoy biology and with their skills in that area I have little doubt that they could have done it.

This also begs an interesting question; If the umgah have modified themselves to be the humourous psychic blobbies we know and love (har har har), what would the original umgah have been before the modifications began? Squid? Frog? Chumtoad?

It's also neat how the umgah dont really discuss their history as other races do, it leaves it so very open a book Smiley

I have always wondered, How do the supox move? (Chrispy, were are you?) I mean, being a plant, you can be transport every second. On the other hand, according to the game, we "proved" that plants cna't be sentient. So... Any ideas?

The supox, unlike plants we are familiar with, have muscles.
The can control their own movements.
Another difference between the supox and other plants, is that the supox have an unset number of leg like roots. These roots do not dig fully into the ground. They serve the purpose of water consumption, and movement.

But the stupidest thing in the game is that they can't explain how they "come" in this world... Just ruined the game  :-/

Don't they say that their scientists proved that plants can be sentient too?

from comm/supox/supox.txt:

#(plants_arent_intelligent)
C'mon, plants can't be intelligent! Our top scientists and science fiction writers have proven it!

#(PROVES_WERE_SPECIAL)      supox016.ogg
Yes. This has been confirmed by our people as well. Strange, is it not?
Many of our people regard this inconsistency as proof of our divine origin.
