THE TANGALAK

"A machine, you call it. Be that as it may, it is more than that as you know. You cannot build anything without putting something of yourself into it; it is not only your spaceship, captain. It is you."

This thread will be for questions and discussion of the Tangalak - a bizarre race of intelligent, sensitive, clever beings notable for their cyborg-like "bodies" they build for themselves. Please ask any further questions here - making me think of answers will help build up the background!

Just a question about the actual creatures, though I suspect I'm being over-pedantic. If they evolved in caves below the surface, will you be giving those caves some form of light source? Otherwise they'd probably be sightless, which makes building a robotic body a bit of a challenge

Not necessarily - my basic thought was that they would indeed be mostly sightless but have echolocation, a radio-band sense, and pretty good electromagnetic senses. That should allow them to get the shape and character of the world around them fairly well without light.

Ah yes, that seems to make sense.

I should do some sketches at some point, except I can't actually draw for turnips.  :P

Potatoes? Carrots? Cabbages? Cauliflowers?
like a bruise that would never go away, but she would cherish it for ever.
