earlybird-obi-wan, I'm impressed with the interconnections of all your species. It's like a family tree. And pictures! It's an illustrated guide. The Sheir-Irel picture is my favorite; they look luminescent and quite alien in contrast to some of their relatives. Chyntuck, the Earthships look really neat. The exterior may not look much like the Elellumiwi dwellings, but I'm betting that the interior under all the decoration and such could be built on a similar line to the Nautilus thing. The efficient processing and low impact are things that they'd appreciate greatly, since they are very dependent on having healthy forests.
