  • Organic Technology


User is advanced master of genetic-engineering, able to create complex biological systems rivaling what we call "technology". They usually belong to species whose entire civilization is literally made of engineered biomass, including weapons, vehicles, structures and even spaceships.

This alternate path proves to be extremely efficient, combining the multipurpose edge of technology to the adaptive expansionism of biology. It also grants considerable tactical advantages, as armies can be quickly produced and optimally adapted to each battlefield, and losses can be recycled just as easily.

Another key product of Bio-Technology is the Hive Mind that usually governs such a species, doubling their very high practical efficiency with global unity and optimal organization and decision-making.

As a result, all these crucial assets usually make users the most successful species of their respective setting.
