    Anyone thinking of making a mod for this race in the future? I want them in the game already.

    Well, it could be made that their racial armor gives them that "oil buff" in a permanent way (for example, enhanced life regen or armor, faster movement, faster energy recharge)...

    I do like this idea, but how did they obtain space travel? Reverse-engineering like Florans?

    Would you consider adding a form of the word liquidus into the name Obscura, it is the latin root for liquid?

    Pretty darn good, especially with the choice of the roaring 20`s as the theam

    So they're basically 1930's, 1940's goo monsters? Awesome. Only concern I have is that some of the armors don't quite have the same feel as the others.

    This race looks like it would be great fun!

    Muy buen post,me encanta esta raza aunque su nombre lo cambiaría por otro.

    Could you please include a translation? Because I know for a fact that that is not the entire sentence and it would be easier for other people who don't speak Spanish to read. Thanks :)

    ¿Podría usted por favor incluya una traducción de la frase en español? Porque sé que es un hecho que no es toda la oración y sería más fácil para otras personas que no hablan español para leer. Gracias :)

    This is actually a good concept, better than all those furry cat/dog/fox races that other suggest. yet for some reason i can't see them in starbound. even i don't liking mods this is a race that i would consider modding into the game. i can't say what would make me accept it in the game sorry, but keep this idea up

    I don't know about that, since the Avali and Felins both seem to be quite popular thanks in part to their well-developed lore, though personally, I think that the Oscura would be a better idea for a race than the similar-looking Beldehors, whom basically seem to be former humans that want to be like the totalitarian Apex, right down to the clothing style. The Oscura have more unique tastes than that, with a more dieselpunk-inspired society, though they may still be dystopian in their own right, such as being excessively-capitalistic instead of totalitarian like the Apex, or warmongering like the Beldehors.

    In my opinion is still a little green this race will be long before it is implemented as other breeds to choose from in the game

    The backhistory makes them surprisingly come off as a bit of a deconstruction on dieselpunk, that with them having a heavily-contaminated homeworld, and mostly having their economy revolve around expansionism for resources, which is also very fitting somehow.
    What would more or less be the playable Oscura´s motivation and overall descriptions?

    Funny story: Despite their many similarities, I'd actually completely forgotten the Oscura existed until well into the development of the Beldehor, so they weren't even intended as spiritual successors to them. Honestly, I'd love to see someone pick this up as a mod if Chucklefish don't themselves show interest in it (which is statistically unlikely), and if someone does, I'd happily collaborate with them to make the mods cross compatible (I can easily imagine the two being outwardly cordial, but intense rivals)

    I'll finish working on the lore eventually, I swear

    I'd like a "mafia" race but I think that there won't be any new races because of the ark gate's slots being almost full.

    don't need to be a playebel race

    Don't need to conform to the Ark Gate, either. Just make your race!
