The Dibs Archive

Post by Darkel on Sun Dec 28, 2014 10:17 pm

The "Dib" Archives

Ok, we've all run into this problem before, and I do mean everyone. Or at least the majority of RG. Everyone wants to make a unique race but sometimes that's impossible. People sometimes don't communicate well here and it's easy for someone to suddenly go, "hey, my race does that too! You ripped me off!"

I have come up with a way to fix that. After creating a race or giving it creative add-ons, to avoid copying, you must place dibs on a specific idea or concept here in this thread. After you post it, other users from there and onward are forbidden from using the same concept for their race. Please note: dibs should only be used for things that you want to be specific for your race. If you're ok with other people using the same concepts, you should not place dibs. However, if the Dib is shared by two or three people that is ok.

How do I place dibs?
Post in this thread the following text:

Dib #(number goes here): (idea goes here). (Any other notes goes here).

Post it in bolded, size 18 text. Also, do not create overbearing dibs such as "My race will be the only reptilian race from here onward".

Rules of Dibs
- This rule is the most important. Dibs do not gain you the right to make OP things for your races. You must abide by all RG rule regarding power and size.
- Dibs must not be used to take down another Dib.
- An admin can deny your Dib at any time for any reason.
- If you accidentally copy another Dib, the first Dib is counted and you must remove yours.
- If you make a dib reserving an idea that someone else's race already uses, the race which was created first (or the idea that was created first) will be counted.

- If a Dib is removed, write: "DIB (number) REVOKED"
- If a Dib has been edited, please write "DIB EDITED" after the Dib.

- A Dib cannot interfere with another person's race unless permission is given. If permission is given, please specify in your Dib.

Dib #1: The Karthla are to be the only race to spread by viral infection, mutation, and pod birthing. They are to be the only race that implements such primal and animalistic elements of horror. In other words, they are to be the last infectious Arthropodal/cephalopod race.

Dib #3: At some point, I am planning to have a completed Entropy Accelerator, and it will be powered by a dark matter pulsar. No one else may use dark energy pulsars for anything.

Dib #4: The Loccalians are to be the only race capable of "bonding" with their technology, especially on a mental state. They are capable of controlling their technology telepathically because their technology is made of Cinicium, the same element they are mainly composed of. They are also capable of telekinesis and have power over various states of matter.

Dib #5: The concept of the Vaurik being "race collectors" and "experimenters" among the races should be reserved for the Vaurik themselves. That is not to say that empires cannot conduct experiments on aliems, rather that the only race that is so obsessed with experimenting on aliens and putting them through torturous trials should be the Vaurik, who are led by the Synod.

Dib #7: The Vara, utilized a form of energy that possesses properties that I haven't quite figured out the particulars of yet. However, no one other than them, except the Krystiran, Jin'tar, the Liirlith, the race the Liirlith will create, and whoever the good-guy Vara decide to pass the knowledge to are allowed to use this form of energy. I'll figure out the particulars later.

Dib #8: Virc such as Isbar (Spoiler: more will be popping up) cannot be mind-read or mind-controlled due to the unique structure of their brains. The only other creature with this resistance will be the leader of the army that the Liirlith create.

Dib #9: Praedromus exclusively has the ability to manipulate gravity through his use of dark matter. No other character may do this. The exception is artificial gravity created for use on ships on such.

Dib #10: No other race besides the Vrentus may shapeshift. The exception to this is Karthla but it isn't the same (According to Darkel).

Dib #11: (Spoiler Alert)
Spoiler:
No other race besides the Eldraunn may somehow have the ability to change the composition and general structure/layout of a planet or area of space very rapidly.

Dib #12: No other race besides the Eldraunn  may utilize psionics in a manner that allows them to physically attack others with shockwaves, energy, etc. They also have the ability to use telekinesis, limited telepathy, etc, though other races may still use these, such as the Loccalians or the Vara. Additionally, Eldraunn can exclusively create "golems" by imbuing masses composed of a certain type of matter with psionic energy. The exception to this is
another race:
the Krathunians, though only under certain conditions.

Dib #13: Kradus uses a scythe that causes explosions upon the blade's contact with other objects. No other character may use a weapon that is a combination of melee and explosive, unless I allow it.

Dib #14: The Loccalians are made from a fictional element called Cinicium, whose properties are currently unknown to keep story mystery. This is because that if we are able to understand the science of something, likely, a very advanced alien race would too. Thus the properties of Cinicium are unknown. I lay a claim to the idea that an alien race be made of a fictional element rather than DNA.

Dib #15: The abilities of Vara (and any Vara-like Vatarri that may arise in the future) are as follows: basic telepathy and telekinesis, the degree of which varies according to individual; the ability to share the experiences of other people through their memories or whatever they are currently experiencing, and the ability to share what they have experienced or are experiencing, or are aware of to other people; a lifespan that they is determined by their own choice; relatively increased physical abilities compared to most races and high immunity; heightened senses, and the ability to sense certain things telepathically; the ability to plant commands in other creatures nervous systems, causing them to, for example, send them to sleep (once again, the capacity to do so is individual); The ability to use their telekinesis to levitate themselves, the ability to do so decreasing the further they get from the ground (except in certain cases, see below); and the ability to use other creatures or certain devices as conduits for their own abilities. I do not claim any of these listed abilities as exclusive to Vara. However, they have the exclusive capacity to elevate themselves to a high-energy state, in which they can move through space unaided, can move quickly and exert greater force, and can also impart energy from themselves into a machine or other repository (not to be confused with the Loccalian ability to telepathically bond to or influence technology). They are also physically much stronger in this state, have unlimited levitating ability, and can take more punishment than they would otherwise.The most powerful individuals can do this without too much drain to themselves; however, (spoiler) for less powerful individuals, this action can potentially be fatal. Only one non-Vara character will be able to perform this technique.

Dib #16: The Zorlask Hordes, which from this moment forward will be re-named the Nylggzora Xenoma, are the only race to have a main progenitor that is classified as Gigafauna (This means no other race will come from an organism the size of a planet). They are the only race to alter host behavior via a parasite that can be seen with the naked eye. They are the only race whose means of procreation (Except for the parasites, which may be produced by certain variants, but otherwise cannot reproduce themselves) Lies solely in Kuth'Lun, the genderless progenitor who is referred to as male. There will be no other planet-sized organisms or parasitic beings who invade in this manner.

Everyone please read the new rules in the OP. Let's try not to abuse dibs. This is supposed to help things.

Dib #17: The Hithe are the only species with a specialised Neural Web spread out across their bodies instead of a proper brain. They are also the only race that reproduces through discarded body parts thanks to the nature of said Neural Web.

Moderator's Note: The Hithe are NOT the only race that reproduces from discarded body parts. The Nisip have this capability as well, although in a completely different nature.

Since I didn't see this reserved...
Dib #19: The Eldraunn ship
ship name:
Evetae
will be the largest in Ruthless Galaxy unless another is agreed upon. Please note that this vessel will not be introduced until after the next timeskip.

Dib #20: The Markovans have the fastest and most agile ships in Ravena; however, their ships also tend to be smaller, have less powerful weaponry, and can't take as much damage as other ships.

Dib #21: UFIAI has vastest fleets of any one race in Ravena. This is balanced by the ships being among the weakest.
