Alien Species: Fharen (Project A)
Aaaaaand I’m back to introduce a new species to the Project A universe, the Fharen:


The gentle natured Fharen are a mammalian species that hail from the mild, earth-like planet Earamdia. They are a species somewhat comparable to Humans in their overall physical capabilities, from strength, to speed, to intelligence.

Having evolved from mountain dwelling creatures, the Fharen retain traits that allow them to be proficient climbers, particular traits of which that include strong, curved fingers and long, gripping toes. Their membranous frills are no longer large and developed enough to serve as glider-like parachutes as their ancestors once had the luxury of utilizing, though they still serve a purpose. The ends of these frills contain chromatophores, which are specialized cells that can change color. For the Fharen, these chromatophores activate based on emotional disposition, like blushing in Humans, though significantly more advanced. Specific colors correspond to a specific mood, like purple for anger/irritation, yellow for fear/surprise, and green for happiness/contentment.

Their natural skin color is a brownish-blue hue, which can vary between light or dark phenotypes depending on ethnic background. They often have dark brown body hair, which is twice as heavy as it is in Humans, and their eyes are often blue in coloration. The color of their blood is, as you may have guessed, also blue.

The Fharen are an omnivorous species like Humans, and thus require a very similar balance of plant based foods and meat products. Their mouths may indicate otherwise, though that is the zig-zag pattern of their lips, not teeth. They have eight eyes, all of which can move independently of one another to give an excellent range of vision. They also have an excellent sense of hearing, which is facilitated by rows of ear slits along the side of the head. In fact, the curvature of the skull helps slightly to funnel sound into their auditory organs. They stand at roughly the same height as Humans, and share a lot of the same male-to-female dimorphisms as well. Females give birth to live young, and nurse their offspring with milk. Also, the tail frills of the males are significantly more complex and exaggerated than the female's. 

The Fharen by and large are members of the Triumvirate League, which is an alliance of alien species that include the Hexlean and Vurtonaxi, which hail from the Dorado galaxy cluster. They are in alliance with the Drox’s Supremacy. Because of the Fharen’s natural disposition to peace, many of their kind are at odds with their empire’s decision to join the warmongering Drox. This has lead to conflict within the Triumvirate League, which has ultimately lead to reforms, most of which strip down the rights of Fharen citizens; the majority of their species now serve as either agricultural servants or reluctant soldiers.  

Before I even started this drawing, I already knew in my head what I wanted to do in terms of clothing style for the Fharen species. First of all, the membranous frills across their bodies made it so clothes would have to have lots of holes and either be extremely form fitting or poofy. Secondly, the general aesthetic I’ve wanted to give to their culture is something of a blend between the styles of Japan and Scotland; Celts and Japanese. I think I nailed that down with the male Fharen, though the female’s clothing design is a little more autonomous (I was gonna give her a plaid skirt of some kind, though I wasn’t sure how to make a unique, alien-yet-still-somehow-Scottish tartan).

Weapons of the USN: Pistols 5 (Project A)
Once more, another set of sidearms manufactured by the United Sovereignty of Nations. For the time, these are the last set of sidearms I will be drawing that the USN employs. I may create more, as Project A lore is pretty flexible right now, though I currently see that prospect as unlikely.  

1: XE-5B Laser Magnum - An uncommon, later model pistol, the XE-5B is the somewhat half-baked answer to the demand for higher powered laser pistols within USN ground forces. The weapon has what you’d expect from most laser weapons: it’s quiet and bares little recoil, however, it has a secondary function; the weapon can be charged up to fire a much more powerful single shot, worth five normal shots in power. The weapon’s battery hold charge for 25 normal shots, thus 5 powered shots. The charge time for a powered shot is 1.3 seconds.    

2: M3 Swiftlet Pistol - The United Sovereignty of Nations is well known, and sometimes made fun off, for not knowing how to do things small. From the massive vessels of their navy, to even their pistols, the USN has a tendency to make equipment bigger than it often needs to be. Even though the M3 Swiftlet is categorized as a snub pistol, it’s still fairly large for its classification. Regardless, it performs its intended function. This concealable weapon is short ranged yet accurate and stable, with an 8 round magazine carrying 5mm projectiles. The muzzle velocity clocks in at 320 m/s.    

3: VKR-2 Spitfire - A fairly rare weapon, the VRK-2 Spitfire is the result of prototype technology utilizing crystalline projectiles. While these crystal bullets don’t nearly have the same penetration power as other modern projectiles, the crystals themselves are both explosive and corrosive, making the weapon perfect against lightly armored targets. The Spitfire is also long ranged, accurate, and has low recoil. The weapon’s magazine carries 13 9mm rounds and propels them from the barrel at a muzzle velocity of 410 m/s.  

4: XE-2A Trace Pistol - While the vast majority of USN laser weapons fire quick bursts, the XE-2A Trace Pistol fires twin continuous beams as long as the trigger is held. Trace weapons, those that fire a prolonged beam of some kind, are not common within the USN military, making this pistol another rarity. It’s a highly effective weapon though, considering it’s long range and extremely low recoil makes it easy to track and eliminate moving targets. The rechargeable battery of this weapon holds juice for a 10 second continuous beam; within this time, the weapon expels about as much power as the full battery of a standard issue XE-Laser Pistol.

Weapons of the USN: Pistols 4 (Project A)
Another submission to my 'weapons of' series. For now, I'm working on the United Sovereignty of Nation's sidearms, though I may bring in one of my currently less explored alien factions soon.  

1: DSS-20 Viper Pistol: A relatively uncommon weapon, the DSS-20 Viper Pistol is a fully automatic sidearm. The weapon is blocky but compact and has a firm grip for increased stability; although the magazine is quite close to the barrel, the weapon is more accurate than most would expect. It is, however, still a close quarters weapon, and mostly effectively fielded as a small area crowd clearer. The Viper fires 790 RPM, drawing from a 40 round magazine containing 6.5mm high fragmentation rounds. Muzzle velocity clocks in at 400 m/s.    

2: AA-5 Umbra: A stealthy, multi-fire pistol, the AA-5 Umbra is a weapon most characteristically utilized by Humanity’s black ops oriented super soldiers; the Huntsmen. The Umbra’s primary fire has excellent stability, accuracy, and range, as well as being lightweight, naturally sliced, and possessing almost zero muzzle flash. The weapon’s primary projectiles are sharp and blade-like, resembling a surprisingly obelisk-like shape. The lower barrel on the other hand fires a high caliber slug designed to fragment inside an opponent and release sulfuric acid for devastating internal damage. The primary barrel propels the 5.5mm by 8mm blade-like projectiles at 750 m/s; drawn from an 18 round magazine. The secondary barrel’s projectiles are 10mm and travel at a reduced velocity of 380 m/s; three slugs can be stored in the weapon at a time, and must be loaded individually. The Umbra is a semi-automatic, and carries a built in laser sight.              

3: CCRX Razorback Magnum: One of two burst fire sidearms employed by the USN, the Razorback is a heavy duty, reliable sidearm, most often seen utilized by the Vanguard. Bridging the gap between the power of a high caliber magnum, and quick firing speed of a lighter pistol is a job the Razorback does well; along with decent stopping power, the weapon is balanced in it’s range, accuracy, and stability. The only possible downside is the weapon’s weight. The Razorback fires three 9.5mm projectiles in a .8 second burst at a muzzle velocity of 580 m/s, drawn from a 30 round magazine.    

4: XE-2B Laser Pistol: The second burst fire sidearm manufactured by the USN is their XE-2B Laser Pistol. Like the regular XE-Laser pistol, this weapon fires highly focused twin beams of crimson light with each shot. Like most handheld laser weapons, this sidearm has excellent range, stability, and a quiet nature. While each individual shot does not deliver the same kind of power as the Razorback sidearm, it makes up for that in the above mentioned statistics. The weapon’s rechargeable battery holds power for 36 shots, and comes with a built in flashlight.

Weapons of the USN: Pistols 3 (Project A)
Here's another submission to the Weapons of the USN 'series' I've kinda sorta just created. This time, I'm introducing slightly more exotic, less common, and overall more powerful sidearms the United Sovereignty of Nations military has to offer.


1: RK-5 Arc-Bolt Magnum - Electrical energy can be dangerous enough in nature, but especially so if it’s weaponized. The RK-5 Arc-Bolt Magnum is a heavy sidearm that fires powerful yellow-blue bolts of electrical energy, each shot carrying 2800 joules of power. The weapon’s rechargeable battery holds juice for 18 shots, and the weapon itself can be fired in full semi auto. Like the G-12 Pepperbox, the Arc-Bolt Magnum is a weapon often favored by Navy personnel for its relatively short range yet highly effective stopping power. In fact, it’s become tradition for some Navy captains to surrender their Arc-Bolt Magnum to a new captain if a vessel's ownership is exchanged.  

2: R15-K Rail Pistol - A strange and mostly impractical sidearm, many wonder why this weapon was licensed for mass production. While this literal hand cannon is undoubtedly the most powerful firearm the USN has to offer, firing a 4.5mm by 14cm magnetically propelled rod at a muzzle velocity of 2300 m/s, it has a 1.1 second charge time before firing, is clunky, and has enough recoil to fly out of the hands of most operators. Many soldiers have gotten to nicknaming this mostly impractical weapon the ‘Wrist-Breaker Simulator’. The only combatants able to reasonably control the weapon’s recoil are the USN’s Aquillion super soldiers.
     
3: AO-5 Gromskei Magnum - Manufactured by the Kingdom of Exinedos Prime, an independent star system, and sold to the USN, is the powerful AO-5 Gromskei Magnum. This weapon fires compressed, directed energy shockwave bolts to dismember foes with a thunder-like clap. In addition to it’s reliable stopping power, the shockwave bolts it fires have the potential to completely bypass the protection of lightly armored targets, and even resonate within the target to do further damage. However, two notable downsides is the weapon’s particularly earsplitting crack with each shot and it’s high recoil. The weapon’s directed shockwaves travel at about 550 m/s, and it’s large internal rechargeable battery holds power for up to 40 shots.
           
4: V-2 Plasma Pistol - While Humanity has long since utilized plasma weaponry, the Courts of Resource Allocation have restricted the funding involved with handheld plasma weaponry, limiting their overall potential. The simple construction of this plasma pistol allows it to fire hot, loosely condensed globs of hydrogen plasma. While relatively short ranged and mostly ineffective against heavy armor, this weapon is not at all terrible, and is simply more effectively fielded as an anti-personnel, anti-light armor weapon. The sidearm fires in full semi-auto, with each 3cm by 13cm green-blue plasma bolt burning at 10100 K and traveling at 300 m/s; the weapons fuel cell carries enough compressed hydrogen for 10 shots.

This is probably really dumb and kind of silly, but I have a question for anyone that happens to come across this journal entry. 

For a little while I couldn't figure out how to look at how many views my journal entries were getting, until just recently. And, I was massively surprised to see that my journals were getting significantly more views than my actual deviations where. To say the least, I simply wanted to ask if any other deviants were experiencing the same thing? It's probably a really dumb question, I know, but I just figured that journal entries wouldn't nearly be as popular as regular ole deviations.
