I think if I had 105 Syreen wiwes, I'd probably die rather more quickly. not only would it be exhausting in itself (remembering anniversaries and such), but I'd have 105 mothers-in-law! Gasp, the horror.

Yes, one would probably die earlier, but happy!

And LP, why are you afraid of those Mothers-in-Law? After all, they are Syreen as well, hehehe! That would make it 210 - almost enough for a whole year-round party, uh, never mind!

(I wouldn't care as long as it stays in the family!)  Grin

Yes but if I have 105 syreen mother-in-laws, that means there must be (I assume) at least a few father-in-laws in the family as well. And I imagine that Syreen men, what with the attraction their women have on the other species, would be more than a little bit jealous, and prone to challenging you to duels all the time.

EDIT: sorry Death, didn't see your input there earlier, must've missed it somehow. Please keep in mind that when I mention these combined ship abilties, I simply jest. I know fully well that it'd unbalance the game grievously, but I am not advocating for the incorporation of these features in the game. I'm merely thinking funny thoughts, and then due to lack of self-control, I write them down in the modest hope that the rest of you will enjoy them as well. Don't woryy, I won't break it. Really, I won't Smiley

I thought that in the Syreen society, the men didn't have anything to say. That would make the Mothers-in-Law take up an even stronger position - hence, there is no way out: if you want their daughters, you gotta befriend them first...

"Befriend" them? I don't know what you're thinking bout here GM, but I certainly don't have the stamina for that. why would women be that dominant though (or am I simply disremembering something here?). Just because there are less of them doens't mean that much, it was just the spacefaring Syreen that were mostly women... Maybe Syreen men have the same "attraction power" as the females? now that could be dangerous....

If you took that notion and ran with it, a fairly interesting mod to the game would be a "male syreen commander" plug-in, so that straight women (and gay men, for that matter) could play too, without any sort of "ick" factor..

Lessee, all it would take is about 45 minutes of voice acting, a new script, and new artwork.  No problem!  Smiley

Oh people, you've sank really low..
first off you've completely diverted from the topic.. it's about the Shofixti..

but more important..

you talk and compare girls to fictional SC2 characters?! have you no shame?? or, should I say, have you no girls?!?!

hmm

come to think of it, I'm not far off..

So, did you ever wonder what exactly did Talana do when she said "this, and this, and this!!!" ??

Talk about sinking low....  Grin nO, I never actually qwondered. but then again, i have a very active fantasy.

And it's my topic, and I don't mind it being twisted. It usually finds its way back to the furry buggers at some stage  Smiley

Speaking of which, i think it's come up in another topic, but how did Tanaka survive his eight years? hibernation? and if he did, who is to say that other Marsupials that didn't make it home haven't settled elsewhere, and already overrun several star systems? We may be in danger already and not realize it...

They'd need gir... ehh, Shofixti Females, wouldn't they?
besides, I'm sure they would've just suicided on some dreadnaught or other enemy ship, don't forget Tanaka's Glory device didn't work.

How low can you go? It's LIMBO-time!

first off you've completely diverted from the topic.. it's about the Shofixti...
Well, yes, sorry about that. But LP already answered that...

but more important...
You talk and compare girls to fictional SC2 characters? Have you no shame? Or, should I say, have you no girls?

THAT'S NONE OF YOUR FRIGGING BUSINESS! Angry
Sorry, just kidding! The real answers are:
Yes, no, and yes, right now, all I have are sweet memories of my Syreen girl (and, like LP, I have a lot of fantasy) Grin

hmm
come to think of it, I'm not far off...

Oh uh, watch it, here comes trouble! Wink

So, did you ever wonder what exactly did Talana do when she said "this, and this, and this!"?
Well, it just happens that I remember it like it was yesterday:
She first [$&$(§), then she did something that could only be described as /§(&"§/$)! and after that all she had to do (and all you could do) was ]§)$?)$%(§...  Shocked
