Isn’t it a little…unfair to make the race that’s the direct descendant of our own forever closed? : /
I prefer human or human-like characters, and making an ultimarian would be awesome, but…well, I’m fucked. Yay. I can understand the Spaceborn being so, considering how significant they are as a species. I just don’t see why ultimarians need to be so restricted…"
As I’ve stated several times before, the Azure Wheel universe and everything in it is a direct representation of everything about myself. I cannot begin to describe how much of a “personal story” my fictional galaxy really is. I’m also pretty picky about things in the galaxy being represented accurately and remaining ‘canon’ for similar reasons.
Ultimarians are not only the most significant species in the galaxy and have shaped it more than any other species, but they are also the greatest representation of myself as a person. They have been custom tailored to fully represent myself (and my morals and humanity in particular), so any misrepresentation of the species can sometimes make me feel a little… uncomfortable. Which is why I only allow creation of this species to people that know me very well as both a person and a creator, or can prove that they fully know and understand what I and the species is all about.
I let others create characters from other species that aren’t as important to the story because I consider myself to be a nice person and don’t want to seem ‘mean’ by keeping all of my species closed. However, the species that I share the closest connections with I keep closed because they’re a little personal.
They /may/ become an open species in the future, but for now they’re staying a closed species.
Sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you,
