Khoram is an enforcer, a bodyguard, but his boss has just betrayed him. Now he’s stranded on a desert planet he’s never heard of, chained to the only other human around.
Atash grew up in the cracks of Dulia’s complex social structure, where dominance and submission are a man’s worth. He’s struggled for years on a lower caste but Khoram could be his ticket to a better life if they can find common ground.
Atash wants to teach Khoram the art of submitting by choice and maybe make a name for himself along the way. Khoram, however, isn’t here to play Atash’s political games. He’s going to escape, if his former employer doesn’t see him killed first.

Let’s Build an Alien!

Thank you Prism Book Alliance!

Today we’re all going to make an alien. Find your favorite random number generator, die, or stick some numbers in a hat and here we go!

1: Animal
2: Plant
3: Mineral
4: Plasma
5: Exists as pure energy
6: Hybrid (pick two)

Dominant Color
1: Red
2: Transparent
3: Blue
4: Green
5: Purple
6: Chartreuse

1: Oral
2: Written

5: Scent-based
6: Interpretive Dance

1: Legs
2: Tentacles
3: Slime
4: Immobile
5: Fins
6: Lighter Than Air/Floats

My alien is a mineral, transparent, communicates through interpretive dance, and can move around on legs!

I think I will call the species… the Oet’ant. They live on a rocky planet like Earth that has several large continents, oceans, and active geology. Their sun is a small, intense pulsar, which has driven the evolution of their transparency to mitigate the effects of powerful UV and other damaging rays.

The Oet’ant live in crystal colonies, preferring to cluster together and dance/communicate in groups rather than individuals. Their society is very mob-minded, which has limited their technological and spiritual progress.

The legs are a lucky break, it would make dancing pretty hard otherwise. 😉

Tell me about your alien!

  1. My alien is a blue plasma being with legs and a written language. They have no name for themselves but humans call them Plazs, short for plasma. They’re strong and intelligent beings who can shape their plasma bodies into different forms but mimic human form around humans. They reproduce asexually and are kind, gentle beings who are often exploited by unscrupulous humans. Gender and human limited sexuality are foreign concepts to them. They love intensely, and once they fall in love they bond for life, but they are polyamorous. They are deaf and mute but communicate thru sign language and writing.

  2. LOL! My alien is a blue telepathic mineral entity which is lighter than air, known as Kleewon. It lives in loose communities in the atmosphere of a world covered by water, where they float aimlessly. They vary a lot in size, some small as sand, some big as mountains. Generally speaking, they are not dangerous, as they spend most of their time meditating about the nature of existence. They are seemingly immortal, because when erosion threatens to damage them, they merge with another one, or two, or three or even more… They call this process reproduction, because the newly created entity is at the same time a new one and an old one, and it includes new characteristics without losing individuals own ones.
    They do not bother with other species. but if another being is able to call their attention and engage them in telepathic conversation, it will be rewarded with an invaluable knowledge… After all, Kleewon have spent millennia considering all and every single thing…

  3. 6 Hybrid random then chose 4 and 5 so plasma that exists as pure energy
    6 Chartreuse
    2 Written
    1 Legs

    yeah….not sure where to go with these beings O.o finding it difficult to match up a hybrid plasma/pure energy life form that would write and require legs LOL
