Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
The Huragok, known to Humans as Engineers, are an artificial race that was created by the Forerunners and the only known non-combatant race of the Covenant.
Personality: Their motivations are unknown, but they appear to draw no distinction between friend and foe, preferring to spend their time inspecting or repairing technology, although they will utter a high pitched keening sound when a Forerunner artifact is under any sort of threat. They are extremely apathetic to any sort of combat, and will just float along with their one desire: to fix things.
Physical Description: Huragok are 1.8m tall on average. Their coloring is various shades of purple and grey. They float using gas-bladders, even continuing to float when dead. Indeed, if their gas bladders deflate, they will asphyxiate and die. They have six dark eyes and four tentacles that can split into very small, near-microscopic cilia.
Language: The Huragok language has yet to be deciphered by other species. They can approximate other species’ languages by flexing their limbs in various directions, bending & overlapping to form the specific formation for each word.
Example Names: Lighter than Some, Easy to Adjust, Far too Heavy
Adventurers: Engineers’ primary function and desire is to build & fix things. An engineer outside the Covenant may have taken an opportunity to explore strange alien technologies.
