Ithorian Species revealed
The first of the new Species in Jump To Lightspeed have been revealed today (14/7/04)
Ithorians are herbivorous pacifists are often called "Meerian Hammer-heads" by those fascinated by their bizarre, ladle-shaped necks and wide-set eyes. Ithorians also have mouths on both sides of their curved necks, which results in a unique 'stereophonic' speaking voice.
Planet Ithor is a stunning paradise characterized by ample sunlight, glistening waterfalls, thriving rain forests, and gentle breezes. Ithor is easily the most popular tourist destination for newly-weds and young lovers. Since the dawn of their civilization, the quiet Ithorians have worshipped the "Mother Jungle," and have lived in complete harmony with their surroundings. For every vegetable plucked from the ground, the wise Ithorian plants two replacements.
The Ithorians moved to the sky relatively early in their societal development, gliding casually above the baffor treetops in "herd cities" equipped with powerful, yet environmentally-friendly, repulsorlift systems. Most Ithorians live in "herds" that migrate about Ithor's three civilized continents. Still others travel throughout the galaxy in space-faring "herds" to sell unusual merchandise.
Ithorian horticultural and cloning expertise is second to none. This fact has, unfortunately, focused considerable unwanted attention from the Empire onto planet Ithor and its peaceful species. The gentle, optimistic Ithorians prefer work in agricultural, artistic, diplomatic, mercantile or space-faring fields. A select number choose to take on the mantle of ecological priests, keeping the "Mother Jungle" safe from danger.
