The Naktian Guidelines
These guidelines are essential to follow in order to make something really unique and creative for the project.
What must be avoided
1- No "Mary Sue" characters
Basically every character has its strong and weak points, abilities and drawbacks. Superhero-like/immortals or unrealistically-gifted characters are totally unfitting in Nakti.
2- No "modern" technology
Planet Nakti is relatively young so the civilizations who live there have a very low grade technological development, which is roughly similar to how Earth was for example during the ancient Egyptians or the Sumerians. Heck there are some Naktian civilizations (such as the Hat'Nyans) who don't even know the wheel!
3- No, ABSOLUTELY no Ponies, Pokemon, Digimon and Sonic OCs and other characters from trademarked franchises
The title says it all. Be original for Say'Rada's sake!! Also, a big NO is using races based on trademarked and existing franchises. So, on Nakti you can't have Chakats, Sergals, Lombax, Caitians, Khajiits, Argonians, Na'Vi or such. They are trademarked. We do not have money so we cannot spend it for lawsuits or for paying the rights to some entity out there.
4- No magic
Nakti isn't like the other fantasy universes, just like Earth, there's no magic. What Naktians call "magic" are just chemical or scientific things that they can't explain because they don't have the required technology to study them.
5- No technological clashes
If you're going to make a Naktian civilization, remember that the planet has a low technological development, so your civilization can't have robots cars or such. Medieval-like stuff is not allowed as well: it would be too much futuristic for Naktians.
6- No humans on Nakti
Naktians are anthropomorphic or semi-anthropomorphic animals. Humans don't exist on Nakti. Same for elves, dwarves, orcs etc. They don't exist because Nakti is not the Middle Earth, nor planet Earth. If you wish to do something related to humans on Nakti, it will be strictly non-canon.
What is encouraged
1- Cultural unicity
If you're developing a Naktian civilization, give them a unique culture. Each civilization has its religion, traditions, costumes, rituals. In Nakti no people look like the other!
2- Naktian civilizations have social classes
Since Nakti is a young planet, its civilizations are organized in social classes, so people of various social extraction interact towards eachother in different ways. Sometimes don't even interact at all, such as the low-class Deldrans who are forbidden to look nobles in their eyes or speak with them directly.
Naktians don't have an advanced scientific knowledge so they see most of the things that happen around them in a religious way. Some see them in a very zealous way, while some other ones in a more empiric one. There's religious fanatism too.
4- Naktian civilizations are "social experiments"
Each civilization on Nakti has its own culture and way of life. So an Abunese doesn't live in the same way of an Issadite etc. Culture clashes are very frequent among Naktian travelers.
5- The view on sex changes according to the single cultures
The title says it all. Not all Naktians are all bisexuals or homosexuals.
6- Naktian civilizations have different levels of technological development
Some civilizations, like the Abunese, the Zonizans and the Aldite for example, are quite advanced for their times, while some other ones are less developed. There are poor or undeveloped civilizations too.
