Locklyn Posted March 5, 2008 Report Share Posted March 5, 2008 It looked like something that would give even a demon nightmares. Sunlight glistened on the scales of its exoskeleton and the sharp spikes on its reinforced armor looked sharp enough to penetrated even the Tckon Imperial Powered Assault Armor of the palace guards that surrounded it. The massive claws clicked and clacked as the creature scurried around the courtyard. Emperor Locklyn of the Genesian Gremloid Technocracy looked with both awe and trepidation upon the latest creation of his Species Engineering Corps and with some hesitation bestowed a slight questioning smile upon his Master Scientist Dr Alkad Mzu and asked “So this is what 7 generations of Species Engineering has come to?” Mzu being totally oblivious to his Emperors less than positive reaction answered happily” Ah yes Sire, we have come far from the days when we Gremloids could barely exist on our own homeworld, when we were treated as food by other carnivious races and could barely fight our way out of a paper bag. Now we have evolved, through the help of our SEC to a species that can fight anything and live on any planet. It is simply an ultimate creature! Gone are the days when you needed 10 to 20 Gremloid soldiers to fight a normal human, no insult intended of course to our close allies the Builders Of Brotherhood but now, it would take twenty humans to best one Gremloid!” Mzu was almost drooling and the Emperor pretended not to notice as he asked “ I have to ask though Doctor, I can see the need for the enhanced strength, speed and mobility, even the armor but all these sharp spikes, I fear they may lower the birth rate and raise the accidental death rate quite severely” Mzu interrupted “No fear Sire, the spikes are there to make us much less edible, no one will want to chew on a Gremloid anymore! And they are retractable so there shouldn’t be any problems with the birthrate Sire” “Good then Doctor, but I can’t help to notice that there seems to be some sort of mount grown into the shell of the exoskeleton armor?” Mzu smiled “Ah yes Sire, your Majesty has sharp eyes indeed, that is the mount for the Enforcer Pulse Cannon that we decided to genetically breed into the form of the Exo Skeleton shell, it can also serve as a mount for other heavy or light weapons!” Emperor Locklyn patted the jubilant Doctor Mzu on his shell lightly…”And pray tell dear Doctor, what use will the civilian part of our population have for use for this mount?” Doctor Mzu looked puzzled for a moment but then brightened with a big smile “Perhaps a good place to put the holovid remote Sire?” Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
