GLOPS! (These were originally intended to be a race. But due to my lack of genius and the amazing-ness of everyone else in existence I know that this idea would be foolish as a 'playable' race. So I recommend it for Mob or NPC.) What they are: Glops are living blobs of gelatinous goop that have a mind of their own! They come in many different colors and textures! That consist of many organs much like that of a slug, such as stalks, tendrils, maybe the occasional slime trail drifting behind them. They can wear armor but it is not like the average person would suspect them to look like and they favor rings, girdles, kilts/skirts, and cones. Their History: In the beginning years of their existence they were simple slimes, trekking around for thinks to accumulate into them to make them larger, stronger, and smarter. Overtime due to the overabundance of stellar gasses, electricity, dust, liquids, decaying matter, and recently deceased organisms led them to evolving to upright blobs of intelligence. Once after this enhancement of state of body and mind they began creating, creating culture, buildings, fire, emotions, and onward. Eventually they grew to the point where war was a necessary key to balancing the world's economy. Once they ran out of people to fight they began looking to the stars. A fellow Glop philosopher named Whammy Wozzle and a scientist named Wimmy Whar discovered a key to space travel. A chamber capable of holding a black hole without collapsing, they used that to create a black hole, harvest dark matter, and take off into space! However it was cut too short when a malfunction occurred creating a black hole that would then swallow their home world. Only those on the T.I.Y Milcross the ship launched into deep space were the key to bringing this race back to life. They searched, searched, and searched some more eventually they were near done. There was nothing left to keep them alive. However while they drifted through deep space they launched a boulder carrying the DNA of both a male and a female Glop into deep space. It finally reached a life capable planet and was dropped through it's atmosphere into one of it's large oceans, for the slimes to regrow and start anew. Eons later it was back to square one, the present. The Glop civilization has regrown and spread across the universe. Glop Professions and Lifestyle: Glops, they are a fairly gentle specimen. They aren't know for war, nor for peace. But for their structures. They made large gelatin structures, they are a fairly advanced species that resemble the medieval Dutch, who enjoyed flamboyant clothes, cones, and jewel-encrusted items! They weapon-wise are know for their acidic/poisonous weapons. Their goo serves as a poison into which dipped in an arrow or a bolt can serve as a deadly weapon. They make spray's that can disintegrate blocks as well as enemies! Anyhow, the Glops commonly served as splendid craftsmen, merchants, and gardeners. They make great quality produce due to their natural ability to make fertilizers. All merchandise they find and (or) create is greatly handled and shipped. Mostly due to the fact that their soft hands don't leave goop on their merchandise and they pack their crates and barrels with layers and folds of their own regenerating membrane. Glop Anatomy: The Glops have a very interesting way of survival. They are living gelatinous matter with many forms of glands and organs inside of them. Some organic, some synthetic, some made of cosmic energy. What would confuse most is how it somehow manages to stand in a humanoid form and not drip, or just fall off. It is all held together by a machine known as a Cryosynthetic Unitary Blooming Apparatus. A.K.A: CUBA or the nickname, "The Ice Cube" [Will add pictures later and I give thanks for the idea of the device to Xenalith.] Glop's Brain: Their brains are very complex, it has the median intelligence between a human and an apex. They have a colossal memory and have a special race only attribute. They have a mind link between all living/dead Glop's and can see their memories as well as their own. This can of course be controlled. Except for the occasional sick one which would simply die of over-intelligence. Glop's Circulatory Tract: Well they don't have blood, they have no use for it. Their entire body is just made of a jelly which is pumped around and refueled by movement. Which is why the Glops tend to move constantly. They can survive standing still of course. Due to the fact that they just go into a controlled paralysis. Which after their stasis they can continue to move. It's a win-win. If they move they get better, if they don't move they stay the same. Glop's Waste System: Disintegration... The females have varying sized pouches on their body (their breasts) which when sprayed by the Male Jelly of the male Glop it will immediately pop the female 'pouches' and send out varying amounts of baby Glops to eat until they grow. Glop's Sensory Organs: Now this is where it gets odd. Most Glops organs don't originate with them. They occasionally collect them off (from ) decaying matter, merchants, cyborgs, and a basic overabundance of genetic material. So they're eyes, ears, noses, antennae, are all unique. They can be buggish, cyborg, human, Floran, and more. Their eyes however are the only exception all Glops are born with two eyestalks atop their head into which they can see with. Glop's Skeleton: What skeleton? Glop's Movement: They move by diverting their gel around using tiny micro amoebas inside of them they push around they're gel and can walk, jump, fight, and more. And at a great speed! Glops Relations: Glops are actually quite the xenophobes and tend to ignore most races. How ever oddly enough they can't help but be attracted (non-sexually) to the Novakids. So they tend to follow them around for an unknown reason. And they absolutely FEAR florans. That is also unknown perhaps the flowery pheromones are poisonous? Who knows. And for the Humans, Apex, Hilotl (excuse my incorrect-ness), and glitches they are completely careless. Glop's Picture: http://community.playstarbound.com/index.php?attachments/mockup-jpg.55796/ Glop Merits and Penalties: (Thank FrankBiscuit for recommending this. And to blazer33333 and Xenalith for giving me ideas) Glop have a remarkable ability to meld through small gaps So some of their more.. solid structures have a great security entrance. Considering it can only be accessed by Glops. Unless of course the entrance was to be drilled through. (This should be the natural armor ability) Glops have a regenerative membrane. (This doesn't really help, it just explains how they heal overtime.) [If Professions become bigger and races get special profession abilities] Craftsman, they are greater at crafting by nature.
