Now with cool, refreshing spelling!
Ok, I've been playing custom races for quite a while (pretty much since my third game), and I've accrued a few by now. After updating them for TA, I decided I'd share 4 of them that I find quite fun to play with or against. Most of these were created just to test out certain strategies as they each specialize differently. These races are TA and metaverse compatible.
The Valkar looked to the stars only to find themselves caught between two races who had already ventured out of their planetary confines, Each of the two neighboring systems were abundant in resources. Each wanted what the other had, so trade was the natural result. Since all trade had to pass through the Valkar system, they quickly devised a way to profit off of the constantly flowing goods. Eventually, they became a race of experts at managing others money, as well as their own.
The Talxerxians are a race of mighty sentient machines. For millennia they have been perfecting their efficiency and proficiency at destruction. Now they are ready to make use of those many years of practice. The Terran's gift of hyperdrive will by the galaxies undoing. The mechanical blades of the Talxerxians have been unleashed!
An ancient and forgotten race of master gardeners designed these sentient plants to care for their vast empire of natural worlds. Unfortunately their creation was a little too fond of breeding and filled their worlds much faster than expected. Unfortunately, they were unable to find a weed killer strong enough to cut down their numbers faster than they reproduce. The ancient creators were forced to leave their worlds behind to find rich new soil. The galaxy is still waiting for someone to rid it of this frisky plant life.
Once known as the galaxy’s premier entertainers, the Jacksonites are now the butt of all the jokes themselves. They still devoutly follow their leader, the original Michael J. Unfortunately, after all the millions of surgeries he has undergone over the years, no one is sure what race he originally belonged to.
