    hmm, a race of snake people that use mechanical suits... hmmmmmmm... may just be me, but made me think of Earthworm Jim. xD very neat
  3. The original idea actually comes from a far side comic I read when I was younger, where a smart snake invents a mechanical hand and asks his freind to "Put 'er there".
  4. Just gonna drop this here, birthday boy. :p

    They cant have tails ingame except if is an armor.
  8. I knew this about half a year ago. I prefer to have them there, because it makes them look more like snakes.
    I hope that it is possible to later add tails to the game, similar to the way hair works. It doesn't get any armor*, and is just there for aesthetic purposes.
    However, if it turns out that I really cannot have tails, I will omit them, as they are not necessary.

    *Maybe a simple cover in airtight suits.
  9. Update!

    Fantastic. The silver one looks particularly painful.
  17. An updated ship, and a Cerpine book.

    Polycephaly is a rare genetic condition of having more than one head, and it affects all animals.
    However, most of the time, these creatures die shortly after birth, making it them even rarer.
    Cerpine however, along with some of their smaller cousins, will more often than not survive this condition.
    Though their life expectancy is cut by approximately 20%, they can often live life normally.

    Cerpine diagnosed with polycephaly will sometimes require a custom-made mobility suit, depending on where the two heads are connected. They will also need special clothing, education, medication, etc.
    Both heads will often have their own personality and thoughts, and they will both be able to control the body. As such,
    both heads are also often recognized as separate Cerpine. This can be difficult for them, since companies
    will sometimes charge them double, yet they can only work one job at a time.

    However, despite their problems, there are advantages to having two heads, considering they can work together. In combat,
    they can use a four-armed suit, and utilize advanced fighting techniques. Two heads also lowers the chance of getting
    snuck up on, and it allows for the Cerpine to multi-task, which can be used in several different ways to make life easier.
    Sometimes, it just goes to show, two heads are better than one.

    May I use this race in a fiction I'm writing?
    It would be awesome if I could.
    I would use the race as villagers or a protagonist or something.
    I am just asking to be nice.
