Okay, this is a big secret and please do NOT tell the Orz - but the Androsynth are ALL hiding in MY basement.

Yes, it's big. Very big. Millions fit in there! And it does not *smell*  Cheesy

Seriously, no matters how big your basement is, if you keep millions of humanoid creatures in there, the whole place is going to smell pretty bad. Smiley

Talk to the Orz & Arilou about *smell* and you'll get the joke - oh, and save the game, and talk ONLY about the Androsynth when meeting the Orz. Then load it again and never again mention the Androsynth when talking to the Orz...

Uuh - better not. The Androsynth grew very paranoid over the years and right now would not be a good moment to have visitors  Wink

I dunno, the Androsynth are known for being obsessed with the way they look.  I'm sure the way they smell is another topic of their everyday concern.  However, one does need to take into account the massive line that would accumulate outside the bathroom door as each Andy takes his pretty little time in the shower.  It would be hell, I tell you!

Well, first of all, the showers in the basement are ultra-sonic, so I don't have to worry about my water-bill. As for the look-alike-Andys - Hell, I don't even know what's going on down there. That's why I tried to make them wear shirts of different colors with numbers on them.

Two problems have arisen so far - the Andys say the numbers looked like prison numbers and so they took them off. The second problem is that after having taken a shower, they often cannot remember which shirt was theirs, so...

Even if I wanted them to leave, I don't know who to talk with, or who I already have talked with.

Barcodes are your answer there. Just surgically graft one into the neck of each Androsynth, and then walk around with a handheld scanner.

That would be a solution, although I as a German restrain from tattooing numbers on persons who are hiding in basements...

If you eat the Androsynth, does it count as cannibalism?  That could be a good way to keep their numbers down and keep your basement from filling up.  Not to mention the savings on food.

Wow! The Androsynth are clones - they all look the same, but they are human after all! I would feel very bad about that.

Other races would be a lot better (although some of them are our friends and we must not eat them!):

Mycons fried in butter (Use a mushroom recipe)
Spathi cooked in boiling water (Use a mussel & lobster recipe)
Ilwrath in chocolate cover (doesn't always have to be a grasshopper)
Stuffed Pkunk for thanksgiving (instead of turkey)
Too bad we can't ask the Zebranky about their favorite Zoq-Fot-Pik-recipes any longer, but maybe we can dig something up?
Oh, and aren't the Supox a lot like esparagus?

I'm not sure whether the others would make a good meal?
