Ah, MicroPhage replaced the cryodrayk with Shaper Monarch (he actually appears about halfway through GF4), but couldn't replace the picture in the creation selection screen.

I might be misinterpreting your question, but shaper monarch is a shaper, not a drayk, so his graphic will of course be of a robed shaper.

I suppose such a flag could be defaulted to 'magical' and just added for the torches, though.

I'm rather an inexperienced BoA player, but if you still need judges then I'd be happy to judge.

Access to shaping vats for producing more powerful creations (and perhaps even serviles) would be nice.

Are Drakons superior beings? in Geneforge 4: Rebellion
Warrior

The Drakons have essentially been using much more advanced technology than the Shapers - this has to balance out any difference in resources.

In G1, the Shapers had the same microscope technology as the Drakons, anyway.

'Superiority' is surely a case of what you define it to be. If it's in terms of achievements as a species/group, then the humans or Shapers are superior. Even during GF2-4 (giving them a similar time period to work over) humans/Shapers have made the biggest advances in Shaping. The Drakons are simply refining an exisiting model with the Unbound etc.

Even Shapers who learn their magic and other abilities can reach a level similar to a Drakon, and the Drakon is relying on the fact that it was made for the purpose of fighting/magicking/shaping. This implies greater discipline in Shapers (and perhaps a greater intelligence shown in a greater ability to learn).

Seeing as there's also a General Crowley in GF4, it might have something to do with it. It might also just be a huge coincidence.

Well, one of the real problems with shaping is the ability to actually create life. It's just as bad as the necromancy which is outlawed by the shapers.

If "shaping" can occur by accident due to magic, doesn't that make it an extension of magic?

Didn't they start off shaping by blasting magic at people, though, on Sucia island?

Surely essence is more the life force of the creation, whereas it's actually turned into what it is through magic.

You do realize that shaping can be used for things other than killing, don't you? Do you think that ornks are a danger to the world? No, they are delicious and nutritious. I shudder to think of what people would eat if it were not for them.

Oozebeasts aren't exactly danger-free, and they're just ornks really :P

Even if shaping was banned, what would be there to stop those who had wielded magic from controlling those who didn't? What is there to stop mages from abusing mental magic (such as dominate) spells to turn anyone into essentially a servile?

I suppose it's just a question of how big the gap between the powers of normal people and those with magic/shaping/something else is.

There is indeed an ornk canister.

Sending in two spine-shielded rotghroths against the rotghroths in Northforge Warrens, and watching the enemies impale themselves on my creations (meanwhile failing to harm them) is regrettably no longer possible :(
