The Luonn Tua, art by Dakota Curry
Species find their way to space for a variety of reasons, whether it be an escape from a harsh environment, overpopulation, or perhaps a desire to explore the wider world. Some, however, take to the stars in order to colonize other planets, and none have as widespread a history of colonization as the Luonn Tua.
The winged people of Vres’na destroyed the environmental stability of their homeworld centuries ago, driving all the inhabitants of their land to the skies. Generations of Luonn Tua cultivated a militaristic tradition, taking lands across the galaxy for their own. This expansionist attitude and the rampant consumption led to no end of conflict between the Luonn Tua and other intergalactic species.
As the most widespread species in the Nacora, the Luonn Tua’s focus on colonization changed over the years. They forged peace with many other species and planets, and their militaristic tradition became a matter of sport rather than war. Every year, a grand tournament is hosted on the largest Luonn Tua world and species from across the galaxy come to test their might and skill against the Luonn Tua, for whom combat is as easy as breathing.
