X'Lanthos Subjugated Species Questions

Post by VoidMiasma » Sat Sep 03, 2011 5:16 am

Just a few fairly related questions about the constituents of the X'Lanthos race. I'm terribly sorry for asking so many questions in one thread but since watching your Vlogs my mind has been swimming with questions and ideas for you.

1) Have you decided how many races (or species) have been subjugated by the X'Lanthos? a dozen? 4 or 5? hundreds?

2) How many of these alien species stayed allied to the X'Lanthos in the post virus era?

3) Did all of the races that left the X'Lanthos' ranks join the humans? Do some fend for themselves?

4) In the table top game are units of X'Lanthos going to contain mixtures of it's species, or are certain species going to be used solely as specialists for the X'Lanthos.

Example of question 4:

A squad of basic fighters contains miniatures representing various aliens of the X'Lanthos. They would be equipped in the same fashion with the same stat line for the sake of gameplay. (This case would be more plausible in the post apocalypse world in my opinion)
-OR-
The other species of the X'Lanthos fall into specific battlefield roles based on their physical traits, innate skills and intellect. (The reason this one seems less plausible to me is because a post apocalypse is far from ideal wartime circumstances and it would seem to me that this usage of entire alien races as dedicated specialists would be a luxury not available to the X'Lanthos. Due to the scarcity of "man power" and resources, each alien, regardless of prowess, would be expected to fill any basic battlefield role. The more tailored species would continue monopolizing roles in which they excelled but the main ranks of grunt fighters would consist of all of the species which comprise the X'Lanthos.)

I haven't really decided. Probably just a few.

None were really allied, but are slaves. Some will probably escape, but there will still be slave races in the post virus era.

A bit of both.

I'm not sure.
