Mixing with humans in both what's now Las Palmeras and Japan have left dominant and recessive phenotypes among even human populations, so it's not uncommon for two seemingly human people to have neko children. Over 70% of the Palmeran population is part-neko, and well over half looks like it physically.


When there's a random chance that you'll be a neko, make sure to be lucky.

The Victoran Empire is a FFT Interstellar Empire with a Roman and Gothic aesthetic that is engaged in a Great Crusade against 'the Enemy'. The setting is a horrid combination of 40k and Doctor Who. No, the Empire isn't British nor is it's name referencing Queen Victoria. Yes I am aware that my writing is sh*t

NS Stats are for nerds. I don't use them and neither should you (if you must, use stats as an indicator of the "average Civilized World"). With that said, according to this index, the Victoran Empire is a Tier 10, Level 8, Type 9 civilization with a Power Comparator of 3.9

'The Enemy' is not a single entity, organization, or anything like that. 'The Enemy' is in actuality a classification used by the Victoran Empire to distinguish entities, races, nations, organizations, etc. that the Empire considers to be a threat to the stability of the Universe.

The corrupted creation of the Precursors, they are a species that uses a form of parasitism and existed in primordial times. They once infested the multiverse and controlled all of their hosts. They later got destroyed by the Precursors who came back from their hiding. They were long forgotten until the Hallacoryan-Nurudian War.

Factbooks wrote:The Cerebotane, like all plants, would desire to reproduce and spread its species. But with the Cerebotane's advanced intelligence, it would begin to target other species and plan to replace them with Deinobotanes, who the brain form believed to be the perfect and ideal organism. First the Cerebotane targeted the non-Deinobotane plants on Veerilia. The Deinobotanes would serve as an invasive and parasitic species, forcibly mating with these plants and replacing their hosts' DNA with their own. As their offsprings developed the simple brains of the Deinobotanes, they would then fall under the control of the Cerebotane. Eventually these plants would be overtaken by the Deinobotanes and were all but replaced. Then the brain form used the carnivorous 'warrior' Deinobotanes it had specially created to dispose of the animals and other sentient life on Veerilia that were deemed as threats to itself. The Cerebotane uses any means necessary, even genocide, to achieve its goal of Deinobotane supremacy, and the spread of its species.

Scary. It sounds like the Borg (the central inspiration for my nation) but as a parasitic plant.

The ultimate goal of the Mainframe is to become omniscient, or as close to omniscient as possible. The most efficient way to do so is to control all of the world's computing power. Thus, the Mainframe assimilates new civilizations every time it encounters them, first taking their computers by cyber warfare, then controlling their organic population.

But what if that civilization have no computers?
Would they still be assimilated?

All Hylians living in the Hebraean settlements belonged to one and only of the three hearths at a time. They weren't ethnic or caste divisions — changing positions in life could mean changing hearths involuntarily. The hearths were not particularly restrictive — all Hebraean Hylians still spoke the same Ancient Hylian, revered all their deities, and mingled freely — but they did govern certain aspects of life.

I'd post the full paragraph this was in but this thread is supposed to be about your favourite line, which I've already loosely interpreted - in any case, the hearth system is definitely one of the more interesting forms of societal organisation I've seen here.
