Hi greg, i was wondering what you thought of matt Bluestone's obsession with the paranormal and other conrpiracy theories? Do you believe there is other life out there in the universe? What are your views on the subject?
I believe there is other life out there in the Gargoyles Universe.
1.Are most of the worlds conquered by the Space-Spawn pre-interstellar flight worlds like Earth? Or are they a variety made up of pre-interstellar flight worlds and worlds with interstellar flight?
2.How many races aside from the ones native to Earth do the Space-Spawn control? Do they control any N'Kai or former N'Kai worlds? Are there any N'kai willingly allied with the Space-Spawn?
1. A mix.
2. I'm not delving into this at this time.
1.Are the space-spawn better warriors than the N'Kai or the other race involved? If so why? Are they just physically stronger or do they just have good morale and are fanatical about it?
I decline to go into details about this now.
How large is the N'kai fleet? The space-spawn fleet?
Both are large enough. (Did you really expect me to have hard numbers?)
2.Do Sentinels just guard over low tech planets? If so how many of these low tech planets are there considering the small number of habitable planets? How many Sentinels are there?
I've never counted.
1.You have said that there are less than 20 races involved in the war and that life bearing planets are few, but can give birth to many races so does this mean that this war is being fought by a handful or two of planets?
Dude, I have reread your question three times and I still don't know what you're asking. But I'll take a shot ...
Prior to humanity and the gargoyles getting involved in the conflict with the Space-Spawn, there are three main races involved in the overall war: the Space-Spawn, the N'kai and another race that I haven't told you guys much about.
There may be a few other races out there, but as I think you noted, I don't plan on making the Gargoyles Universe resemble the tavern scene from Star Wars.
1.Of the races in the galaxy are any of them as long lived as Nokkar?
2.How long can one member live? Any one of them older than human civilization?
1. As the N'kai, you mean? At any rate, I haven't defined the lifespan of individual space-spawn yet. They may also be very long-lived. I haven't decided. Otherwise, no.
3. One member of what? And how are you defining "civilization"?
Why are the space-spawn winning the war when the N'kai are older?
How old is this galactic war?
Older than Nokkar?
Old, by human standards.
What kind of government do the N'kai have? A Democracy? A dictatorship?
What about the space-spawn and this third race?
The closest Earth-equivalent to the Space-Spawn's government is a militocracy.
I'm intentionally not revealing anything about the N'kai or the other alien race.
How many major powers are there in the galaxy? Are the space-spawn, N'kai and this third race considered major powers in the galaxy?
2) Yes. (Keep in mind that the third alien race should not be confused with "The Third Race" a.k.a. Oberon's Children.)
greg where can i find more info on all the "Space-Species-Nokkar-Futurama" crap i keep reading about in the archives. my brother and i really want to know. is there a web site or info centre i could go to to find our more or is all i can do just read the archives and try to figure it out like that. please throw me a bone.
Seriously, why should I throw a bone to someone who refers to my stuff as crap? Does this method of antagonizing people you're asking favors from work for you in life?
But since someone reading this (a year and a half after you asked) might also be interested, I'd suggest looking at the Gargoyles 2198 archive. Most of what exists is in there.
Which side in the galactic war has more troops?
I haven't counted.
Is this third mysterious race involved in the galactic war allied with the Space-spawn?
Again, I assume you're referring to the fact that I mentioned that prior to the entry of Humans and Gargoyles into the conflict their were three major races involved in this centuries-old dispute. The N'Kai, the Space-Spawn and a third race that I've given no details on.
Still, by definition, their involved.
Is this third race helping the N'kai?
Again, by third race, I'm assuming you're not referring to Oberon's Children, but to the as yet unnamed alien species.
In any case, I'm not answering that right now.
Was the third unknown race a dominant force in the galaxy before the Space-Spawn?
Just to be clear, for those just arriving, I believe Galvatron is making reference to something I said about there being three alien species in 2198, who are major players in the galactic conflict.
1. The Space-Spawn.
2. Nokkar's people.
3. A third species I haven't said much about yet.
4 & 5. Would be humans and gargoyles from Earth, I guess. After 2198, that is.
And I'm not saying that there aren't other alien species too. But these are the major players.
Anyway, to answer your question... it depends on how you define dominant. They were extremely prevalent, wide-spread. But not necessarily in charge.
Just curious is Coyote-X for the Space-spawn occupation of Earth or is he against it?
What about the Space-Spawn are any of them against the occupation of Earth?
Coyote-X views the invasion as an eye-opener. It resets his parameters. Who holds the status quo is of less interest than who will ultimately hold the Galaxy.
The Space-Spawn are no more monolithic than the humans or the gargoyles or anyone. So some may object. But you're not going to meet many of them early on.
More Space-Spawn questions...
1) Will there be any main individual Space-Spawn characters in Gargoyles 2198?
2) If so, will there be more than one?
3) Are they necessarily all villains?
3. Not saying.
Last question from the galactic view would the Space-Spawn occupation of Earth and it eventual rebellion be an important event in the intergalactic war?
Other than the Space-Spawn, the N'Kai and that mysterious third race that has a major role in the war, do you have plans/specific ideas for any other alien sentient species?
If yes, then how extensive are those ideas? (e.g. just a few names of species or entire biologies/cultures/histories figured out? :-)
I've got a loose but fairly clear idea about what I want to do with the Space-Spawn, the N'Kai and the other alien species. And I'm not ruling out the notion that there are more than just these three (plus our Earth born races). But I haven't taken the time or effort to develop those. And I probably wouldn't unless I found a format for telling Garg Universe Outer Space Stories. I've got the arc down. The specifics would be left to story telling.
Do the N'kai have gods? What about the Space-Spawn?
1. I don't know yet.
2. They have two gods.
Are there any political entities in 2198 in the Milky Way galaxy more powerful than the Space-Spawn Empire?
How did the Space-Spawn develop into the threat that they¡¯re?
Can the N¡¯kai take them down?
It depends how you define "political entities" and "power".
Victory after victory.
Why are the N'kai losing the war?
In how many words or less?
Were the N'kai the dominant force in the galaxy before the Space-Spawn?
How many sentient races (excluding those native to our Solar System) are there in the galaxy? Hundred? Thousand?
Fewer than 100.
