    I'd like to point out that the game, while most of the Agaran Menace related things are inaccessible, still includes some attainable objects that vaguely point towards the Agarans in a negative way, these objects being the Mushhroom Biome objects.

    The ones I'm talking about in particular are the lamp and the chest. Glitch descriptions say that:

    (Lamp) "Analysis. The glow is produced by spores which seem to display parasitic behaviour."

    (Chest) "Analysis. Opening this chest releases invisible spores. Long term effects are unknown."

    Other than that, nothing else really points to them negatively as of now (that I know of).

    well, hows that negative? its a way of life. Hardly differs if a floran stab and eats you or if some spores grow in you. you function as food in both. It' at least not more negative than what most of the others races alrady to

    Well using that logic, you could say that turning other races into Agarans is just "a way of life", too.

    Although the above is worse than what you mentioned in your post, so you do have a point...



    Also, were the Avians based off Aztecs or Egyptians?

    Both, probably.

    Well in that case, I'd like to point out that it was common for Aztecs to use enthegenic mushrooms.
    Assuming that the Sunborn were superstitious enough to use mushrooms, perhaps that's how the one from the Restless Sparrow got infected?

    but given what half the foods effects in Starbound are I guess its all kinda steroids and amphetamines anyways.

    I haven't encountered any prisons run by Agarans yet. If I do, I'm freeing the Florans. Something seems off about these guys.

    Someone should start a thread called "the Agaran Amigos" or something like that. For people who think the Agarans are nice people.

    Or, we don't do that and change topic.
    And talk about cookies, cause everyone loves cookies.

    They seem kinda evil, always following me around and shouting while waving pointy weapons in the air. Of course, after slaughtering them all and leaving their village in flames I'm not sure I'm allowed to speak of morality. Another village plundered, yarr!

    I Don't think so, they seem to at least not instigate a fight, at least I've never seen it.

    I think it might be a bug, I've had avians mistake my bug net for a weapon and start shooting at me while I was trying to get a bug as well.

    I've come across many an Agaran Village in my 120+ hours of play time, and I've yet to see any torturing anyone or holding any prisoners.
    And they probably won't be anytime soon.
    Not after what I did.

    Back in the days before upbeat giraffe or whatever it's called, there were minidungeons where Agarans were seemingly torturing Florans.

    I wonder if anything about Agaran Menace is canon anymore, or has all of it been retconned to oblivion by removing the related dungeons. I hope not...
