Somn - That is really outstanding.  Not at all dissimilar to how I picture both races in my head when I read.  Cheers.

Curethan:  YES!  That smells like victory!  Seriously awesome, thanks.

Wilshire and Triskele:  thank you very much!

I appreciate the comments.  I have a long way to go, but feel like I'm on my way.  If I could do this stuff all day, every day, I'd be a very happy boy!

Awesome as hell Somm. I love the design of the Nonman, and the bashrag actually comes pretty close to my own mental image.

I think you can use the pillars - just check out the various temples in the world and get an average idea of the girth of their pillars. It typically seems to be enough to hide a person inside, if they have any at all. Sure, an author doesn't have to go with that. But then again maybe everyone on Earwa have big, obvious gill lines on their necks as well and weve just assumed otherwise? There's plenty of discrepancies an author could have. But they are discrepancies (basically screwing up genre)

Sure, the pillars in the book could be bigger, but were defending whether the tusk is smaller than we thought. Bigger pillars just mean a bigger tusk (not a problem in regards to what were defending).

Actually, this brings up something I've wondered about before. If sranc are based off of Nonman bios (which I assume is just an in-universe word for DNA), then are the bashrag also based off Nonmen? I pictured them quite similarly to Somm's rendition, though with the pale skin of sranc or Nonmen. And yet, the bashrag are described as decidedly hirsute, it seems. Perhaps they were based off of the human bios? I wonder then if their multiplied organs are a reflection of mankind in some way, just as the sranc's distorted features are a mockery of Nonmen?

Dunno, rambling something fierce here, lol.

sranc based off quya, bashrag based off ishroi?

I've always thought the bashrag were based off the nonman art and it's triplicate fetish.

Good thought. Ties in very nicely, though I'm going to substitute "based off' and replace it with "perversion of", since everything the Inchoroi due is supposed to be evil (words for controlling, in any case).

I'm fairly sure the Bashrag are described as having human faces.  I figure the Inchies just jammed 3 humans and whatever synthetic bios they use for control mechanisms into one of their 'grafting chambers' and slammed the button to see what happened.

I think 3 humans would probably take up the same rough volume as an Inchoroi. 

Highly doubt they based any of the weapon races on nonman art, lol.  Just doesn't seem like something they would consider if there was a 'design phase'.  ;)

:o!

Probably because they are works of art, fool.

Amazing. I feel like I'm most impressed with the light emanating from Achamian's eyes and mouth, despite the angle. What detail!
