Most of it yes, but there are exposed areas.

Check it out, the formatting mostly done - http://www.sporewiki.com/Content:Xivai

I'm convinced that'll be the best page on the Spore Wiki once it's done. So much more has gone into the Xivai than most creatures there. It's been an entire evolutionary process before the game has even released.

I don't think I'll have a computer that can run Spore by the time it releases. *cry*

No, our ritual is going to be hording cake and then using it to mock Sally Struthers. It's a foolproof plan.

Since the majority of the flesh is beneath the exoskelton, wouldn't it make more sense to have the exoskeleton heal faster than the flesh?

For the prayer or ritual how about we..... hold a contest between two of the weakest warriors. The winner gets another chance to serve the loser gets his blood spilled in the arena.

Sound good? It was a fast hastey idea.

How about the loser dies and the winner gets sacrificed to the Nameless? It's far more honorable than just being killed and that way we don't have to deal with having another weak xiva around.

Much better I give you a rough idea and you hammer it out. That sounds exelent one again furthing our quality.

Why do I have the feeling our warriors will be so strong and tough that for everyone that falls it kills 20 enemies?

Hmmm.... If anything with all the implants the eldest warriors could technically be the strongest.

I dont think its somthing we should develop it would eventually limit our warriors maybe if implants were effective and cheap to make but as of yet there no useful implants. While it would help ready us I think we should stick to a battle between the weak for now. The winner getting sacraficed and the loser dieing with no honour.

If we had a bigger more advanced scociety I could see its usefulness but right now it seems like its weakening.

The issue is that it isn't really a religious ceremony, though with the sacrificing I could see how it might work like that.

I love all the weak-culling we're doing. That not only benefits the society now, it makes sure only the most high quality genes are passed down. Our wars will be like taking 50 robocops and putting them in a classroom with 1,000 japanese schoolchildren and watching the chaos unfold.

I don't like the idea of sacrificing our strongest warriors. We do all we can to make sure only the strong survive, and then we go and sacrifice them? Doesn't really make much sense.

How about, when you eat live prey, you first have to give some of its pain to the Presence? Its pretty much the Xivai way of saying grace tongue.gif

But we're sacrificing the winner, aren't we?

Yes, but we're using the two weakest Xivai to begin with. They're both weak, the winner is just less weak, and thus gets the honor of being a sacrifice.

The exoskeleton doesn't grow back, but it heals like human skin would do. But if you say, got a huge chunk taken off, only a thick black chitinous scab would grow back instead of the really thick black exoskeleton.

How about we just go with the UFC for Toddlers. It's a good way to get rid of the weakest. Like the Spartans and their babies, but without all the extra work.

Am I the only one that fails to see the religious significance of the toddler UFC? I propose my torture-your-live-prey-before-you-eat-it ritual be the new one. Its simple, its religious (since we're giving the pain of the prey to the Presence), and it can be done frequently (unlike the exoskeleton removal and the toddler UFC)

It's also pointless. The toddler UFC is religious because it ends in a sacrifice.

Well, I did say choose one or more. Both picked!

The toddler UFC is religious because they are all fighting, to see who has the Nameless' blessing. The Nameless will make the strong survive, and the weak die.

Cool.

I guess the Nameless is picky with what it eats. First it decides the winner and then it eats her. Remember, our warriors are our females.

But I thought that the toddler UFC was to decide which Xivai would get the special training, which would get regular training, and which would be cannon/Ysugtha fodder.

Honestly I have no damn idea anymore. Hopefully it works out for the best.
