The majority of your opponents come in the shape of an NPC; so someone who isn't a player. These come in ALL shapes and sizes, from eel, to scurvy to random ball of metal; all of which you can attack by landing on top of them. Killing NPCs gives you skills, helps you complete missions and some NPCs also drop goods which you can pick up and use (most of all, killing NPCs gives you a sense of BRAVADO), but they do fight back, so make sure you have the right skills before tackling each one. You can get a good idea of what you can and can't take a chunk out of by reading this wiki, talking to older players and (somewhat riskily) giving them a poke yourself.<br>

==Master Pirate==

'''"Only 1 thing is worse than a pirate: 2 pirates."<br>
 
That famous proverb sums up the master pirate. Think ye of a rogue pirate and times it by two and a bit and: Voila. Happyjoy, we arrive at the 'master pirate.' These 'pesky rascals' have sussed that sitting there waiting to get attacked isn't the most successful tactic. These 'blighters' go even as far as ambushing! I know; what has the world come to? On the bright side, once you get to their level though, their spoils are much more satisfactory than their predecessors.'''<br>

'''"Your face looks like a Vorpal Fang"<br>
 
Oh. Oh. The sweet scent of nostalgia. Who hasn't been called a Vorpal Fang on the virtual playground? Mmmmm... Aside from that, according to Pork Mythology, Vorpal Fangs were the foot mould of the great giant Daisy Boo. 1 thing's for sure, spraying them with obnoxious chemicals won't do you a lot of good - once they hold on, they don't let go (well, to an extent - it'd be pretty silly if it held on for ETERNITY). Yeah. Not comfort killing for beginners, but good practise once you can handle rogue pirates with ease.'''<br>

'''The Lahst Thingh Iy Sor Beefor Geting Wolfd Woz An Anemonee Eeting Mie Crab DOUGLAS HADAMS' 'THE DAY I TRIED PEASE PUDDING''''<br>
 
Ah, who hasn't read that classic novel? Back before spelling was invented, the Anemone was a most feared poodle. Named after a type of marine flaura from some little-heard-of planet, it would go out at night (well... the space equivalent, which was when the Kudu practised that intriguing art of 'Sun swallowing') and attack passing vessels with prams (as in hitting them with buggies - squealing children and all). The trauma left many an unflinching, war-hardened veteran tucking in to bushels of banana croutons to drown out their misery the addictive foodstuffs with their crunchy yet... surprisingly flavoursome aromas. Since then though, Kudus have become a lot rarer, and prams have stopped being mass-produced. In the face of such events, the Anemone has since fallen into insignificance. Still, they provide a nice distraction to kill for pilots who are beginning to find rogue pirates child's play (since most of them are children, this comes as no surprise).<br>
 
Present alone in [[Maps#Arcturus|Arcturus]] and [[Maps#Quan|Quan]].

'''"I'd rather be a wasp than eat vegetables"<br>
 
Needless to say, President Brian McDuh was a bit... questionable. McDuh declared war on vegetables back in the year of the Small Grunting Crisp Packet and greengrocers have never fully recovered since - <b>Especially</b> due to constant raids from these beasties. Interstellar Vegetable Consuming Wasps (or more commonly known as just 'Intersteller Wasps') are particularly fond of courgettes - causing much controversy over whether they actually are a vegetable or not. Clearly, such petty arguments are irrelevant when you're confronted with one of these. I think McDuh would recommend a wee bit of practice before waving a carrot in front of this insect.'''

==Space Jelly==

'''"Not for eating."<br>
 
The space jelly is in fact related to a branch of the canine family. How it made this tranformation from its original species is... quite a mystery. A pain to find and a pain to kill except for intermediates and above, space jellies have been likened to jelly babies in that when they are put in a warm test tube of potassium chlorate, they fizz, smell and make noises in much the same manner. Also... They both have 'jelly' in their titles (You can count McDUH for that astute observation - this won him the Nobel Prize for Physiology).<br>

'''"You don't want to pick on me. I'm related to a smidgen of semi-transparent energy"<br>
 
The seventh emperor of Pork, after successfully establishing his throne through questionable means, definitely had a point. This is yet another creature which has stirred debate amongst those with nothing better to do. Some say this lifeform is in fact reminiscent of the dead and its trans-dimensional nature makes it hazy round the edges... Others say that that it's the result of an immensely profitable remote ISP that somehow lost its way in the realms of cyberspace... And others still demand that it actually refers to colourful men who hunt small birds.<br>
 
However all this isn't <i>really</i> important - all you need to know is that they're not suitable for small children (or for that matter, big ones).

'''"So err... Where did the suit come from?"<br>
 
That, is the greatest second greatest unsolved mystery known to philosophers to date but some speculate that it is in fact the next step in the evolutionary cycle for us. However attempts to communicate don't go very far as the pulses emitted by the monkey are detrimental to the structural integrity of most ships (quite how this works in a vacuum I'm not sure...) and no instruments can yet get past this rather curious barrier in communication. Needless to say, if you've fresh earned your wings, speaking to this buckoe should <b>NOT</b> be at the top of your list (let alone nabbing his 'nana). '''

==Slurg==

'''"I don't like Abe."''' Slurg motto.<br>
 
Slurgs are in fact disfunctional spores from the ear mould of Kudus (yes, they have ears). Unlike conventional spores, they have no perceivable role - being both useless for reproduction and aggravating allergies. Like other USBs (useless sentient beings), they can be used to efficiently transmit data and energy through vintage PCs. They also make excellent seafood. From space.<br>
 
They are, however, a slightly tougher nut to crack than their cousin the anemone (both if you're trying to eat them (removing the shell is best) and just attacking one for the sake of it) and are prone to killing you if you attack them. So, behave.

==Krill==
 
 
{{SERVER}}/img/n/krill_x256.png
 
 
'''Quote'''<br>
 
The Krill would be, in fact, relatively harmless by itself... unfortunately, natural selection decided that the Krill wasn't pretty enough by itself, so it developed a species whose sole habitat was the Krill's jaws. The 'Wetfishpig,' a dangerous creature that originated on those famous Narokun beaches floats aimlessly through space until it finds a Krill... On discovery, it immediately inhabits its mouth and consumes everything that the Krill floats into; far from enjoying the experience, the Krill has to live on nothing but... Let's not go there. Commonly mistaken for teeth, the Wetfishpig has alarming flexibility and is prone to retreat holds and any new pilots shouldn't think about poking them until much later on (and it's nice to ask permission from the Krill first before blowing it up).

Cephalopods have changed (if only slightly) since their days slaving on earth. Whether their gills process photons or dissolved oxygen in the sea though, the important thing to note when encountering these creatures is the LARGE-TENTACLEY-SUCKERY-THINGS-WHICH-WILL-DEVOUR-YOU abbreviated to 'Blowholes' (intrigued readers may want to take note that the technical term nowadays for the creature's arsenal is in fact 'The Biscuit Tins' ever since spelling was re-invented by the Bourbonites of Birmingham back in '93... But 'blowholes' makes a lot more sense).<br>
 
They're not very nice on the whole - so don't go poking one (unless it looks particularly lonely, in which case it would be the loving, Christian and traumatic thing to do).

'''Quote'''<br>
 
Kudus are scary. They can eat just about everything (including singularities) without ill-effects and worse, are registered accountants. Analysts have picked up boredom levels well over the level of a lecture on the properties of a brick-hued brick; mathematic levels well over that which is healthy to be subject to (i.e. More than 10 minutes of calculus); biscuit levels far beyond Mr Bourbon could ever imagine...<br>
 
Capable of a little-seen-before 'SUPER CRITICAL HIT' from a projectile weapon that collapses shield, armour and hull in just 1 visit, this <b>MONSTER</b> of a creature has been known to inhume entire species in its parabolic, cardioid nonsense-field whilst feasting upon the lethal flying banana of a Space Monkey.
 
In all, this is a very dangerous creature indeed - and not to be sensibly poked for more than 1 round, if at all. Watch it.<br>
 
Kudus are also fond of gardening.<br>

The Green crystal is actually a breed of llama, completely unrelated to its differently hued cousins. When unaccompanied, these enjoy grazing and... the other things llamas do in their spare time.

The Red crystal, as with all the crystals, came from a concoctional of fruit juice. When you melt one, apparently, you can smell tomatoes. Fancy that.

Not so much a word as a sound.  Named Most Attractive Sentient Being by the Terran Academy of Thunderbolts, Johnny "Groundwire" Fitzsimmons was stuck by lightning 15 times before he was finally granted his pilot's license.  Finally allowed into space, Fitzsimmons found great popularity among his fellow pilots who frequently invited him on excursions to hunt electromagnetic based life forms. During a solo package run to Orion Prime, "Groundwire" came across a new life form that sent his sensors off the scale.  Not one to shy away from a good electrocution, Fitzsimmons attacked and suddenly a legend was born.  Well...killed really.

Latest revision as of 20:43, 18 January 2014

The majority of your opponents come in the shape of an NPC; so someone who isn't a player. These come in ALL shapes and sizes, from eel, to scurvy to random ball of metal; all of which you can attack by landing on top of them. Killing NPCs gives you skills, helps you complete missions and some NPCs also drop goods which you can pick up and use (most of all, killing NPCs gives you a sense of BRAVADO), but they do fight back, so make sure you have the right skills before tackling each one. You can get a good idea of what you can and can't take a chunk out of by reading this wiki, talking to older players and (somewhat riskily) giving them a poke yourself.
Whatever oddities you face though, just make sure you kill them in style.

Spawned critters inherit the properties of their parents.
More then just ambush/block.


NPCs can be stronger, or weaker than it's average stats. So if you're just barely able to handle a certain beastie.. be careful. The next one you face may be his stronger brother.

It is unknown to what degree they can be stronger or weaker, but it definitely differs by NPC. The max is believed to be 25%.

Shields regenerate every 30 seconds.

NPC loot containers stick around for at least 8 hours.
Every 40 minutes and 7 seconds past the hour, any NPC container that is older than 8 hours will be removed.
