Made a thing for myself since it’s been a while. Trying out a different look for icons, it scales down pretty well.

People & Races

The planet of Sytous’ native dominant sentient species are the Ertakar and an artificial sub species known as Jal-Kar

Ertakar are classified as a mammalian species, despite appearing similar to upright standing draconic creatures. They are warm blooded, with a body temperature closer to that of marsupials, and a hollow bone structure reminiscent of earth birds or dinosaurs. To accommodate their wings, they have a second set of scapula and pectorals, similar to any species that might have 2 sets of arms at the torso. Their torso and spines have greater elasticity, similar to earth cats, allowing them to achieve both bipedal and quadrupedal movement with natural ease, and their lack of collarbone and shape of their chest cavity allows their fore limbs to collapse appropriately. Potential height of the species comes at around 7ft to 9ft.

Ertakar skin comes in two general categories, either thickly plated leathery skin, similar to that of an earth Rhinoceros, or thickly patched scale similar to earth crocodiles. Those of patchier/plated skin can be traced back more rugged terrain and arid environments, those of smoother skin can be traced to more temperate and humid environments. Colors can range from earthy tones of brown and yellow, cool tones of blue and green, warm tones of red and orange, or simple colors of black, white and gray. There being no sexual dimorphism amongst the species, lack of mammaries, and all genitalia being internally housed, there is no visual separation between the sexes.

Along with varying skin types and color patterns, Ertakar are made most unique by the set of horn and bone arrangements on their skulls, or even lack of. While likely originally adapted for protection, in current society it is more used as a means of display, for attraction or intimidation. Arrangements range from short and long horns, grouped and solitary, along with other protruding bone structures and crests.


Jal-Kar are neither a native species nor are they visitors, but rather they are an artificial species created as a byproduct of the gene therapy and manipulation in the war. They are classified as any being that is a mix of both Ertakar and Human DNA. While Humans and Ertakar on their own cannot interbreed, some Jal-Kar, not all, are capable of interbreeding with the two species. The original Jal-Kar were mutated humans to have elements of Ertakar genetics, current Jal-Kar are their descendants some of which have been from couplings of Jal-Kar and Humans, Jal-Kar and Ertakar, or Jal-Kar and other Jal-Kar.

Due to the mix of genetics and mutations, Jal-Kar can have a wide range of features and mutations between either species. Horns, no horns, odd facial structures, stunted wings and tails, very few of them have wings well enough to fly unless they had some Ertakar parentage in their history. The odd mix and mutations of the species leads to often unique health conditions as well as there always been a chance for infertility.


Lastly, Humans make up a small portion of the inhabitants on Sytous. They’re not that much different from humans we’re familiar with other than their planet of origin being of a separate time line and continent arrangement than our own Earth.

Geography

The planet of Sytous is similar to that of Earth in atmosphere, live structure, sun distance and size, only with a higher percentage of water on it’s surface and it’s difference in evolutionary preferences. I don’t really have much more to add to this but there will be info covered in the Flora section when that comes about so have this pretty basic world map for now.

The planet itself has 2 primary continents with a few large island clusters. The area in the pink outline makes up for the primary location where the story’s setting would take place.

Introduction

I wanted to do this last year but couldn’t get around to it so guess I’m doing it now. It’s from a project that started on tumblr but here’s much easier to organize anyway. Prompt list for the thing can be found here:
http://worldbuildingjune.tumblr.com/prompts

For this June I’m going to start with a setting that’s been pretty important to me for a very long time. It ties into an eventual comic I wish to do which currently is pending in name but I’ll figure it out later. The planet and setting that will be focused on will be Sytous and most of the culture and society with one of the larger territories where a lot of the story is centralized on. My intent is to cover the world and setting at the time that the comic would take place so that means some brief background along with the current setting, but the culture/society I have to describe is not exhaustive for the entire planet.

Sytous is a planet that is home to the Ertakar, a draconic-looking mammalian species that make up the dominant species on the planet, however there is minor co-habitation with a humans in certain parts of the planet. The Ertakar are the native inhabitants of the planet, but the humans are travelers from their own planet, the setting takes place about 200 years or so since the human’s first landing on Sytous and their existence has been more or less integrated into the general location they landed on.

The setting itself is sci-fi, and while it’s not what one might call ‘hard scifi’ it’s definitely not science fantasy. Much of the content I produce delves into culture and sociology, likewise the conflict in the comic setting will be centered around has to do with culture clash and the ramifications of choices made in the past and how the waves can effect so much later on.

Munin is Munin is Munin. Some things never change. I need to know what happened to Lex here.

Time jump? Cryostasis mistake? Angry time god? Vampirism?

Time jump was my personal thought
