    [A Brief Summary of the Greckan]
    Deep in the recesses of the universe, Erchius grows and develops. This resource, highly desired for the development of FTL drives, is more advanced than previously thought.

    The events of the Erchius Mining Facility aren't the only occurance of Erchius infecting a host. In fact, a new species has been born of this union. The Greckan have emerged on a quest for knowledge. Knowledge of Erchius, the universe, what they truly are, and why they were created...

    Greckan are composed of hybrid, organic-mineral structures. With their crystal features being a side effect of the ability for Erchius to alter their genetic code.

    The Greckan value architecture and fine artisan crafts. This is stemming from the social hierarchy that exists due to the crystals that grow from their skulls.

    Despite their skilled craft ranging from house wares to exquisite weapons, Greckan value diplomacy above conflict. They retain peace as they continue their hunt for knowledge of the mystery of Erchius and their own existence.​

    • Select and open either "Starbound" or "Starbound - Unstable"
    • Select the Greckan race in character selection, and play the game!

    Some missing text when scanning but other wise pretty darn solid.

    Looks cool, unusual for starbound. But that's because nice.
    I'm reminded about anime Houseki no Kuni

    esta muy bueno el mod

    I don't usually keep using custom race mods after checking them out, but this obviously shows dedication and care for detail, very nice!

    Now wish me luck, hope these Greckan are not aggressive, because these strange crystals just ask to be poked and prodded out of curiosity.

      Author's Response
      Thanks for the review. I plan to continue adding content for time to come.
      And just be careful when prodding, they're probably more curious about you than you are of them. ;)

    This mod is nice. In fact, these are on the few mods that caught my eye just looking at its name, and thumbnail. I also like the consistent updates, which shows how much the author cares for the mod. Anyways, good job and keep it up! :)

    First time I've seen a weapon use shift. can't wait to see it blow up like many other awesome race mods. Keep up the good work. If someone tells you to stop, tell them it helps develop good work habits as consistency.

    Seeing this mod grow is very inspiring. Updates are consistent, and adds even more content per new version! Can't wait till this hits beta.

      Thanks for the review! Actually, the mod IS in beta, so I think you meant when it leaves beta. :P
