Galkgrokst Firearms
Galkgrokst Firearms
The first galkgrokst firearms were developed a little over 900 years ago by the engineer-philosopher Krashee Palkst Dzal. His patron, the Empress of the Unalloyed Will, commissioned him to create a more powerful version of the hurled bombs in use at the time. In his typical fashion, Krashee Palkst Dzal instead delivered an entirely new weapon system. He adapted existing grenades into conical projectiles filled with explosives. The projectiles were fired from rifled tubes, propelled by pre-measured explosive charges. These early weapons, though large and primitive by today's standards, led to tremendous changes in the nature of warfare.
At their core, the basic design of firearms has changed little since Krashee Palkst Dzal's day. Most galkgrokst weapons consist of a long, rifled barrel, with a magazine and firing mechanism located at the rear and a trigger mechanism located near the front. This forward placement allows the narrower end of a user's tentacle to depres

The Kalkuhkalk
The Kalkuhkalk
The dominant order of life on the galkgrokst homeworld evolved from something not unlike our sea urchins: a central oblate body, protected by a bone-like shell, housing the major organs, with between three and five specialized tentacle-like limbs with their own independent nervous systems which do not really coordinate with the central body or each other. In most cases, one of these limbs has become specialized for eating and sensing, one for reproduction, and the others for locomotion. Land-dwelling members of this group have almost universally developed internal bone-like structures in those limbs used for locomotion.
The kalkuhkalk, the only real domestic animal the galkgrokst have, is, like most animals on the galkgrokst homeworld (and rather unlike the galkgrokst themselves), a member of the family described above. Its wild ancestors were social, highly aggressive herbivores  first domesticated almost 20,000 years ago and subjected to intense artificial selection al

Hey, Kalgrost, have you though about posting and working your stuff in Speculative Evolution forums? It would be nice to you to come back, and post your works not only here, but in the forum too. s1.zetaboards.com/Conceptual_E…

We would like to see more about your universe. At least it would be good to read some more stuff about Galkkrosts (History, Culture, etc...). Have you thought about trying to make some kind of book, or similar, about Galkrosts?

Very interesting idea. We could use more aliens that can't be replicated by humans in costumes. Hope it works out!
