Geofiction 101: Creating an Alien Race

Alright, let's admit it: the coolest part about geofiction is creating aliens.

Okay, even if science fiction isn't your thing, coming up with your own race of exotic (and/or fearsome) aliens is pretty cool and exciting. As a kid, I know I loved to come up with my own aliens, modeled mostly on my friends in my class and (of course) my teachers - many of whom I suspected probably were actual aliens.

Making an alien civilization is one of the most popular components of a geofiction project, and can give you hours of fun. This is a brief guide to making your own people and giving them an identity of their own.

Step One: Looks and Environment

It also gives you ideas for the rest of the physical attributes of the race (and even the environment).

Clearly, these aliens must live in or near water, checkout, Geofiction which means that your planet try, Crochet should have a lot of water try, Advertising Collectibles (such as lagoons, swamps, lakes, etc.).

Step Two: Traits

What kind of attributes does your race possess? Are they barbarians, or highly intelligent checkout, RC Wings (or somewhere in between)? Are they pacifists, or do they love war? What is their average lifespan? Do they have magical powers also see, Collectible Locks and Keys and abilities? What are their interests? What are the most identifiable parts of their psyche?

What are the values and morals of the society? Are they individualists, or prefer community?
