With a touch of sulfur alcohol for that nose churning eggy aroma.

If I could make just one wish, I would want a tasty vlish.

Geneforge IV. Still no tasty vlish.

One thing that's bothered me...So where does the helium in the sacks come from? I mean, it it leaks out, how does the Vlish get more? Does it go down to the grocery store and suck on the tank of helium at the expense of kids not getting their birthday party baloons?
They breath Helium? And if a Vlish is filled by Helium, why he (Note: I deliberally didn't use "it") just don't fly away? Mental Force Field?

And the helium comes from where? There are very minimal amounts in the atmosphere, unless in the Geneforge world everyone talks with a high pitched voice. :P

I just assumed Vlish used their tentacles to propel themselves.

I'd tend to agree. It's much more plausible if Vlish use hydrogen - perhaps by consuming water and splitting it? - than helium.

It also makes sense that they want us to think it's helium. It keeps the people with matches away.

Unless the people with matches are completely clueless about chemistry. Damn.

StarEye: :D , right. Maybe they product Helium themselves. With nipples, or tentacles. Or both.

For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

I'm sorry I was completely wrong.
I got confused by a bad history book.
My apologies.

I kept wondering why something about the topic title was bothering me. Now I realize that the topic title could be mis-interperated in a very TM-like way. :eek:

What, as in "Ever wonder how Vlish get a round of drinks"?

Maybe one of their tentacles doubles up as a credit card - one can always hope.

Still too tame, Micawber.

—Alorael, who thinks that Vlishes are filled with helium for a very good reason. They're the star creations, but they're also stars. No, you wouldn't know it to look at them, but they're very small and luminous nuclear fusion balloons.

Congratulations, Nioca. You've been corrupted now.

Mind control. Because then it's free.

Ah, the powers of the English Slanguage. :rolleyes:

At any rate, I wouldn't have made that connection, if I hadn't heard the song 'My Generation' recently.

If vlish are at all similar to squid or octopi, then they wold in fact have to use gas propulsion. I'd think they'd get tired of blowing out air or flatus 24/7, but they are resilient little monsters.

Either that or they are like eyebeasts and telepathically will themselves around, or in TM-context, onto others.
