immune to Psionics.

While I don't wholly agree to such things as utter invulnerably... I just don't agree, I don't know where I was going with that...
Though that does (or should) only make them immune to mind-reading and other such direct psionic abilities. This does not make them impervious to foreign attacks, such as a psionic blast and a weapon.

There are bandits on Loria, but that's about it. And are you people gonna post yours, or critique mine for however many threads this runs to?

I just cried a little.

Corruption reaches all aspects of life, my dear child. Especially when there is politics involved.

I had to.

Thanks to you I have to scrap every idea and start completely over. I need to come up with something that will even stand a chance against them, and in doing so makes them better than the UED and Dominion. And Protoss.

"Yeah, maybe they should have, at most, a 50% resistance to Psionic attacks. No, Crymson, stick with it. I am."

I have none to post as I do not concern myself with making an entire culture or sub-race.

I stick with the smaller individuals that can do more or less depending on how I feel and how the DM feels.

Fine, but just because I'm going to have my gunships and something else which the Lorian wouldn't think of because they are rich snobs.

If you want, you can soon take over the Battlecruiser. The Principality will be called away soon, for reasons yet to be known.
Also, I want to hurry up and finish with the Kerrigan de-infestation part of the story so I can get into some heavy material I have planned.

Total immunity to psionics? Hybrids would like a word with you, a serious word with you. I could post a hybrid faction I am working on as a 4th race. Still need to iron out the kinks.

Oh, you read that series too :D

But I agree. Jester posted a creative faction that I found interesting, and it didn't involve Death Stars XD

We aren't snobs, and I already have gunships. And I went full spectrum because this is just meant for FUN! Stop thinking so seriously, geez. And Death Star was instant planet death. End Game takes time to reach the core.

All Hybrids are considered extremely dangerous by any factions. While Hybrids can be found in different forms, they are all powerful and they all share some characteristics. These are not limited to Consume DNA, Mind Control, Immunity to many things amongst other things. However, they are not immortal. Their numbers are few thus far. Most importantly, they can die even though the cost is great.

Unit: Tyrant
Lore: Something has awakened and its sinister nature was felt by all psionics in the sector before it quickly disappeared. Investigations by other factions at the point of origin found nothing but a very large unnatural crater on some fringe planet. No other important information was discovered on the planet. The only logical conclusion was that "some massive entity has awakened." Thus far, the being in question has simply been given the name "Tyrant".
Sighting: Unknown

Unit: Desecrator
Lore: The hybrids are powerful beings that crackle with immense energy but these monstrosities are on a whole different level. From the various reports, they bend the space time fabric around them with their mere presence, twisting and distorting reality at its whim. Unconfirmed reports states that it can phase itself, as conventional weapons completely does nothing to it. The only way to damage and kill such creatures so far is through psionic energy. Only the most powerful psionics can hope to damage a Desecrator and it takes a well coordinated group to kill one with heavy losses.
Sightings: Extremely Rare

Unit: Obliterator
Lore: Protoss observers received footage of one in battle and it strikes fear to even the most seasoned Protoss defenders for the Hybrid Reaver pales in size compared to the Obliterator. How such a creature come into being without anyone knowing is anyone's guess. As its name suggest, these giants by themselves can easily obliterate a fortified base with little to no effort as it did to a fortified Protoss encampment. These creatures do not have shields but they are extremely robust, durable and powerful siege weapons. It does bleed so massive amounts of firepower could bring one down to its knees but its abilities are still largely unknown.
Sightings: Extremely Rare, only one has been recorded in battle.

Unit: Vanquisher
Lore: After communication was lost with a small fleet near Aiur, the Hierarchy feared for the worst and sent numerous scouts to probe the area and discover what took the fleet out. They found incomplete parts the commander's video logs amongst the space rubble. When the Protoss leaders watched the fuzzy chopy video, they discovered that a single unknown capital ship took out the small fleet.

Given the name Vanquisher, the Protoss deduced that they are hybrid ships as no other factions have a ship that looked like it. It appear to be synthetic in nature and its weapons and shield systems were far more advance than anything they seen. If the image was clearer and the other parts of the video logs were found, a more complete analysis will be concluded. Until then, more research was needed in order to outfit their ships to combat this threat in the future.

However, it does raise a question. How were the Hybrids able to build such an advance ship in such a short time? As far as the Protoss could tell, the Hybrids needed help to acquire materials and all signs, including the incident at Castanar, pointed at the Dominion helping the Hybrids. Something is amiss inside the Dominion as the Dominion has yet to utilize any of the technology. An invisible hand is playing the Terrans...
Sightings: Extremely Rare
I will leave this list below, more units some other time. Until then, cry OP.

Disintegrater (not a word, it is now)

It's sort of redundant to include them since anyone can look it up. I'm trying to make each unit unique but when you are a really OP OP OP unit to begin with, it's a bit hard. But that's what makes it fun. Who knows if Blizzard actually implements one of them?

I like your ideas smylez :D

I think the only reason we complained to Zarkun is because he would be actively using them in most RPs he's in XD

Looks fine to me. On the other hand, trying to create 5 more types of Hybrids is quite the challenge but it will be done!

I'll probably put ingame stats to see how they work out. Most likely the stats will be ridiculous but rest easy, they won't be showing up in a RP near you anytime soon.

If they show up, I'll just use End Game to destroy their planet.
