The Continuing Adventures of Valdo: Driftwood

6th Day since impact

The rain stopped today, but the water did not recede so most of the day was spent on board the Memsochet. I also managed to finish the realspace receiver, as I said I would yesterday. All I need is a stronger power supply and I should have a transmitter that should be able to cover the whole planet or most of it. I could have easily just rewired some things, but I got tired of being in the ship and once again tried to fish. I caught three of those little fish today, but my biggest catch was one of the natives. The Edstigarian was drifting down stream, probably a casualty of the recent flooding. I snagged him with the fishing line and examined their strange body. As I noted during the first encounter, these creatures walk on three slender legs. They seemed to be quick and nimble, if I remember correctly. Their muscles seem less developed than most species. It is possible that these Edstigarians are not very strong. The scariest part of the entire body is the skull. The skull is larger than that of a human of comparable size. These “big heads” probably have big brains, and I don’t want to make enemies with a race of strange smart creatures from a different world.

The Edstigarians

Personality: At this point all, Edstigarians are still living on Edstigar and favor professions such as fishing and hunting.

  • Hello Citizens of the Galaxy!

    As I said in a previous post, after school sports take a toll on my schedule. Driver's Ed is finally over but Tennis is in full force. Thanks to Spring Vacation, I intend to get many weeks ahead of schedule so this site can live up to its reputation as the most updated SWRPG site on the Internet.
