"How can a warrior die better 
than facing fearful odds 
for the honor of his clan 
and to live in the songs of family?"
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Davorean Ledermin, "Elegant Eleven for Yazirians. Everyone else goes to ten, we're better because we go to eleven (philosphy from the Spinal Tap clan)." 

11. We were here first. The rest of y'all migrated.

10. We can fly. Well, glide...but it's pretty close.

9. There's monkey strength, and there's enraged strength. Then there's enraged monkey strength, which allows the weakest yaz to tear others' limbs from their sockets (or pseudopods from their nuclei).

8. We can see at night. Makes us better killers.

7. Secret clan handshakes.

6. Do you really want to be on one of our life enemy lists?

5. We might have the shortest lifespan, but we live and play the hardest.

4. We fornicate for pleasure, just like humans. Female humans call us animals for more than one reason...

3. We wear sungoggles during the day. Not because the sun affects our vision, but when you're cool like us the sun shines all the time.

2. Better dexterity & reaction speed in lieu of strength makes us better shooters. We're also smarter and more attentive.

1. "See that tat on my arm? That's a Black Mandrill, we're feared throughout the Frontier!" (Cholla clan)

I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide...nor do I have any qualms stating why. Tongue out

Fa'Riki endured the heckles of the young Yazarian and his human friends. He suspected the influence of the enemy. When  they had finished questioning the old ways he calmly said:

"You complain that great One allows the Sathers evil. Yet the stars shine still. 

 

Since time immemorial we use the metaphor of light to describe good.

 

Darkness has no real power. It depends on something else to obstruct the light and thus create the motes of shadow it needs to take hold. 

It cannot throw open doors, it can only whisper temptations from the other side in the hope we will let it in. 

 

So then, if you see shadows of evil in the world, look not to blame the source of light. It is not His fault, it is yours."

 

-Excerpt from "The end of wanderings: teachings of Fa"

Reasonable men adapt to the world around them; unreasonable men make the world adapt to them. The world is changed by unreasonable men.
