Many dwarves assume the Gap and the disappearance of Torag are signs the Quest for Sky was NOT completed when they reached the surface of Golarian, and now lead ragtag fugitive fleets on a lonely quest... for a shining planet known as Sky.

No, it's shortened name of the ship. It's official name is "The Timeless Battlestar of the Noble, Tireless, Fearless, Bearded Questors on the Lifetime, Eternal Search for the Lost Promised, Glorious Realms Graced by Sarenrae of Golaria"

Even ZO! refuses to use the full name.

Most anacites suspect there was no Gap. They consider bad memory storage to be a much more likely explanation.

My personal head canon is that the starfinder universe is a simulation and that the GAP was caused by a faulty garbage collection that erased memory that was supposed to be still in use.

It's nice that the Anacites, at least, agree with me.

Afterfest is a common ysoki holiday, which is scheduled flexibly to occur after the largest local feast day. Friends and working-class folks gather, and exchange and eat leftovers from the night before, so everyone gets to enjoy something new without any more effort.

Gratenmoot is a Vlaka holiday where family and friends gather to feast and share their favorite sensory sensations linked to something they are grateful for, such as the smell of a mother's shawl, of the sound of friend's laughter. Old feuds are often settled, as well.

Awwwwww, I love this.

Though no one knows the origin of the name of "Gyr Day," it is well-known as a nuar celebration of kindness towards others and defending the defenseless. Many nuar consider it their holiest cultural holiday.

I doubt we can make requests but...give us some background on those wacky Akitonian gladiators!

@thecursor do you mean the Wacky Hacky Akkies?

Oay, I'll let myself out...


...I admit I walked right into that.

"While humans often use from variant of "pain in the rear" to indicate an annoying complication, ysoki say "crick in my tail"
Usage: "You're a real crick in my tail, you know that?"
Similar: burnt whisker, ear-notcher, wad of gum in my fur, garbage dinner, big grandma

Shirren brains cannot process the sensations of a physical itch. Even if it's telepathically implanted, or the shirren polymorphed into a mammal, their brain records the sensation as a minor pain, rather than true itch.
Some shirren are obsessed with this fact.

Even dwarves seem surprised how adept they have proven to be post-Gap in examining large databases and analyzing them to develop new information.
They have even formed a "Data Miner's Guild"

More reason Shirren are awesome.

When a human might say "don't freak out," a vesk is likely to go with "don't get grit under your scales," or "awwww, do you need a skittermander?"
Similar vesk phrases: "smoke stuck in your nose," "grow a rainbow-streak," and "cough out your teeth."
#Starfound


I can see "I need a Skittermander" being rather common.

"Do you need a skittermander" is spoken with the exact same tone and subtext as "Bless your heart".

You need a skittermander is now my go-to insult in real life.

Also Shirren having "fomo" about an unpleasant sensation is peak Shirren and is now canon.

Despite efforts by many Vesk governors to close it, "Luggleflat's Academy of Spellamanders and Skittermystics" remains the premiere school of eldritch training on the Skittermander homeworld.
It's the legendary home school of the skittermander hero, "Furri Muckabout."
#Starfound


I've mentioned "Line 69" elsewhere. This all pact spy agency really chose the name because rumors of their existence is usually dismisses as a dirty joke. They often pass top secret information in the form of tri vid porn using unwitting couriers. The randy bug slayers series is as informative as it is shocking.

"Khabonc," is a form of skittermander wrestling. Wrestlers hold the left wrists of their opponent with their right hands. The objective is to force an opponent's hand to touch the ground.
No rules say how many hands you must have. A few vesk are champion khabancors.

Yesssss

In a reality 3 shifts to the left, the school is known as “Flattlelug’s Academy of Witchamanders and Skitterwarpers.” Some students there have managed to warp into our reality by accident, and are always warmly welcomed by the faculty of this universe.

Because vesk translate the skittermander word "zegatch" as "honor," other species follow suit. But while skittermanders take their personal, clan, and nation's zegatch very seriously, it better translates to "strong drive to help others for no personal benefit."

Contemplatives have a form of telepathic perormance known as "Pensato," where numerous contemplatives join in alternating harmonious and discordant contemplations which pass over "observing" telepaths in waves of linked ideas.
Lashunta love it. Shirrens find it creepy.

Now picturing two opposing gangs of contemplatives fighting over one persons brain with tastes great/less filling

Hobgoblins enjoy the stimulating drink khurgb, which is mildly poisonous. It can, however, be safely drunk through a platinum or silver straw, making those popular forms of wealth display in hobgoblin societies.
Goblins generally just slurp it down, then bring it up.
#Starfound

As the goblin word for goblins is "genb," and for hobgoblins is "ulgenb," & the 'hob' in 'hobgoblin' means 'elflike,' many humans think 'ul' is the goblin word for 'elf."
Instead, 'ul' means 'true,' and many hobgoblins consider the common-language term "hobgoblin" an active insult.

Shirren were already a space-faring culture when they broke free of the Hivemind. Thus they have no historic cultures of their own.
To solve this, Arthopologists have built shirren worlds emulating earlier cultural/tech development. FlintlockWorld is the most popular.

Hey Owen. Thoughts on where kobolds might be hiding out in the galaxy, or is that beyond the scope of this thread?


In the Draco star system, worshiping dragons(of course).
