"Is this thing on? Hello? Hello? HELLO?"
"It's on Travis."
"Oh! Good! Khm, km, KM!"
"Don't spit in the microphone."
"Yes yes. Well, were was I?"
"At the beginning?"
"Yes... At the beginning. Well, to all who are listening to this message, do not fear. We, the humans, have no intention of murdering your entire people. Unfortunately, there also happens to be a brutal, merciless, invincible army of whatchamacallits heading your way. Pretty much all ways in fact. They made a lot of enemies, as in everyone they've met and are yet to meet. Chances are that you might not even have access to a dimensional gate. The purpose of this message is simple: To keep YOU alive and to keep US alive. I've included some several technological advancement sets in this capsule to jump-start your civilization, but please please please PLEASE do not use it to kill each other. I wish I could give you everything but apparently some worlds aren't very fond of competition. It's a miracle that I even managed to any worlds at all. I think that's about it. Oh yah, real important: Don't go exploring different worlds. The gate might seem fun to play with at first, but trust me, you can wind up in a living nightmare if you're not careful."

Humanity has gained access to "gates" or traveling devises between worlds. Several other races have accomplished such a task, while others have not. A few have been supplied with the technology as well, but only for a single reason: To wage war against the ____. The ____ have a great weapon, capable of dematerializing their enemies with a single blast, melting away everything around them. However, humans are strangely immune to this weapon.
- Want to make a species? Sure! Just confirm it with me and don't make it a half-baked talking cat. Fully baked talking cats are fine.
- You only have to read the "short" intro.
- Just because the Xhanis are invading different worlds, this is not an apocalypse RPG.
- This is the future, but not even close to the distant future. Lasers, anti-impact boots, and hovercraft exist. Advanced war spaceships and teleportation devices do not.
Xhanis: Have dark blue scales, a fairly humanoid head, only with a longer face. Have fairly muscled arms but not excessively, without much fat, no irises, pupils forming a black plus sign. Their are teeth canine, and a rather skinny but strong tail. Are omnivorous, being able to survive some very powerful hits. Can also survive hot and cold environments by a natural heating and cooling system within their bodies. However, extreme changes in temperature is a reasonable weakness. Most are smart, though there are a few exceptions, standing on two feet with four toes on each and has two arms with four fingers on each. Are quite far ahead in terms of technology.
