The products of a long dead alien race these monsters haunt the space ways & the planar back waters of the universe. They strike without warning & move through space like locusts across the African plain. These monsters devour everything in their path only to disappear within the folds of hyperspace once more! 
The Nirulindeld attack without warning with a bio blast of zeta rays from within the latter half of their bodies where the biological machinery is stored. They use a combination of stellar energy & solar to keep the bio machinery of their bodies going between the stars! 
The monsters bodies are a combination of silicon based nano-threads & hyper strong alloys allowing them to tear through most star ships with easy. They attack  with a combination of a claw, followed by the devastating blast of their zeta rays melting anything that gets within their way.  Finally a claw rake attack is used on anything that survives. 
The monsters most eat their mass within a day or so otherwise go into a slumbering state as the move through the space lanes. These monsters are hunted by many scientists & astronaut cults  as their bodies provide many valuable materials ! The 7 foot long monsters are worth their weight in credits as they provide armor, ship materials, & more. 
The monsters are known to have attacked planet side & many humans must roll save vs or be struck by fear of these terrible insect hordes from space! 
Several astronaut cults use these monsters to clear star systems as the ancient American Indian  tribes of pre Atomic Age Earth cleared forests & grass lands. They may be summoned with high FTL communications beacons! 
There is evidence that these monsters have visited Earth in the past. Scientist pointed to the pre -Atomic books & magazines that have survived the purges! 

The Nirulindeld continue to be both bane & boon to the Empire & space in general.  The Human Empire continues to deny any involvement of pirates using trained Nirulindeld to attack space liners & the like. There is some evidence to the contrary however! 


  1. Those zeta rays wouldn't be somehow related to the zeta beam that took Adam Strange to Rann, would they? I mean, assuming he ever really got to Rann...

  2. Assuming it wasn't really a Nirulindeld clone warrior. Jeez I can't sneak anything past you Trey can I? ;) More to come folks stay tuned!
