  2. It occurs to me that there are really two types of energy beings: those who think they're superior to flesh-bound mortals but are mostly paternalisticly benevolent, and those who think they're better than flesh-bound mortals and like to use them as playthings.

  3. Glad you liked it Omlet! The list was something fast & quick that I threw together last night! There's more of them coming up! ;D Thanks for the comment.

    Trey their ought to be a handy flow chart of the various aliens with your explanation! It would save a hell of a lot of time in preparation! Personally a handy cosmic matrix storage unit might really save the Earth a ton of time! ;D
    Storage for these things might be a problem however!
