[indent=1]First, let's talk about some news: Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest is now playable in its playtest environment on OCTGN virtual tabletop! We've finished releasing the tutorial series of videos explaining the rules of the game and how to install and play it on your PC.

[indent=1]Now that we've finalized the cards in the game and released the online playtest version, the team has moved onto the next step in the development process: illustrating the cards. However, before starting to draw the final art, we need to come up with designs for all the races, spaceships, buildings and technology they all have.

[font='Trebuchet MS']

[indent=1]This blog focuses on the Daran race.

[indent=1]ConceptDaran.jpg
The Darans have a very technologically developed society. They have many scientists and inventors that actively explore and learn about the galaxy. They aren't skilled fighters, so they create shields for their ships and buildings to protect themselves. They focus on thinking strategically, looking at the bigger picture, but aren't great at on-the-spot tactical decisions.

[indent=1]ConceptDaranSoldier.jpg
The standard Daran soldier uniform includes tough polycarbonate body armor designed for absorbing small laser blasts, and fire-resistant rubber sleeves that protect the Daran's soft tentacles from puncturing and slashing injuries caused by explosions and the resulting splinters.

[indent=1]This uniform is adaptable for outer space use with an addition of a helmet and air containers, meanwhile, high-ranking officers may attach ceremonial capes to it during formal meetings.

[indent=1]Along with the aliens themselves, we've been brainstorming ideas for ship and equipment design.

[indent=1]Daran ships have large glass cockpits, sometimes multiple floors high, to better admire the surroundings.
They generally have very rounded edges, to make them more aerodynamic when flying in the atmosphere. Many of them are designed to dive underwater since Darans prefer living under the surface.
This model has a paralyzing laser gun mounted at the top for defense against attacking ships.

[indent=1]The light cruiser at the top is equipped with two Barumian range weapons for repelling asteroids and small opposing threats.

The stealth lugger at the bottom is equipped with a cloaking device that masks it from enemy sensors when flying in empty space.

[indent=1]These two models are designed for very specific uses:
The top ship is a two-person pod, storable aboard larger ships. It's used to gather samples of asteroids and other debris to bring back to the ship for analysis.

[/font]

[indent=1]The bottom ship is equipped with two powerful magnetic shield generators and a tractor beam aimed at immobilizing enemy ships before they have a chance to attack.

[indent=1]What do you think of these designs?

[indent=1]Thanks for reading this development blog. Here's something extra:

[font='Trebuchet MS']

[indent=1]These are the original concepts for the race of rock aliens called Geocors. They are great in combat, powerful, durable, are good builders, but they're slow and clumsy with technology.
