For some reason the SA forum is missing the official pinned topic on background that is used by the background team to gather opinions and ideas about the background of the faction.
So to remedy that I am opening this topic and am looking forward to your cooperation as the BGT will soon work on finalising the SA background.
To help us out please answer the following questions and consult the already released parts of the background to get the sense of the general direction we will take with the Saurian Ancients.
1) Choose 5 adjectives that in your opinion describe the Saurian Ancients the best
Alien (not the UFO or ET kind, but more a way of thinking too distant and different from human or even from the elven one)
2) What is your favourite theme/thrope associated with the SA like factions/creatures in fantasy
I like tha Mayan/Aztec theme in the army which comes nicely with the mystic of the army. I also like the magical/ prophetical theme with the saurus as loyal warrior born and bred to fight the demons and defend the Cuatl without mercy, the skinks using poison, guerilla and dinosaurs to fight the enemies and the Caimans using brute force.
I think I'm the only one who is ok with the robot-like saurus without emotions. They are warriors they are born to fight, that's the only thing they do and want to do (so are the Caimans). Skinks are artisans and priests (who were also "scientist" in the Mayan society), so they are able to think freely. Anyway I always liked the idea that it is an army around the Cuatl and its powerful magic. Doing whatever it takes to do the Cuatl's bidding and to protect him.
3) What is your least favourite theme/thrope associated with the SA like factions/creatures in fantasy
I don't like the extraterrestrial theme, I prefer them to be a very ancient (if not the most ancient) race, who was flourishing when the elves learnt how to use fire.
Have fun and know that we are reading
