technically there are deadlier hornets in general, but the giant hornet is the most dangerous to people just by virtue of their stinger size and venom. A few other hornets have more potent venom but manage to inject less per sting. The Vespa mandarinia and V.mandarinia japonica sub species have a stinger about a quarter of an inch (6.35mm)

Four reactors melted down, and spewed some percentage of their 1,600 tons of fuel onto the surface of Japan, into the air over the pacific ocean, and into the ocean itself.

1,600 tons of plutonium - admittedly not the sole or even major constituent of the MOX fuel in question - is enough to kill over 100 million people.

Will it? Probably not. However, the effect the radioactive particles released by Fukushima Daiichi will have on the Earth will be powerful and horrific, on some scale or another.

Optimistically, the star fish are back on the beaches where I live, but the west coast is supposed to have a bunch of radioactive debris wash up this year, so we'll see if this positive sign is repeated next year.

Actually yeah, it sorta is. When they breed they'll be prone to mutation (granted those would be mostly fatal birth defects) and if mutations result is super crazy shit that doesn't happen to die immediately it can breed and repeat the mutant strand gradually creating a new subspecies of mutant giant hornets. Maybe they'll have extra stingers. Maybe they'll be fuckhuge. Maybe they'll have 2 heads. Or maybe they'll just be immune to certain chemical effects.

Butterflies tend to be more colorful and disarming, and the media depicts them to be cute creatures. Besides, they'll never get that close to them anyway.

Moths are cute, but less commonly associated with cute things in media. Because of this, they get lumped in with all the other "icky" bugs.

Basically a culture of researchers that aren't above some well-intentioned thievery in the pursuit of knowledge. They'll usually remember to put the books back, though. Easily distracted by lights, but more clever than most.
Their native language is a kind of clicking, almost rhythmic, banter with different meanings for clicks and the gaps in between based off of things like antennae position and body language.

For religion they follow a deity called the Great White Flame(Full Moon), and their faithful often decorate their shrines with mirrors and small quartz enchanted to glow faintly. Commoners might not even notice the glow at first, subtle as it is. It's not uncommon for Mothkin looking to "Acquire" new knowledge to pray before going out.

Adventuring Mothkin are usually doing so in order to find secrets and such.

Surprisingly close to the way I did mine, of course, mine were a little more emotionless and logical for a more grim, grimy world than a fanciful and endearing race for high-fantasy. That and they were magic specialists, not rogues.

Seems like knowledge acquisition is a big part of insect races based off Moths. Do we just associate them with the search for knowledge, or that we see them as little adventurers of the dark, finding secrets in the shadowy places?

I've been looking for a replacement for gnomes as an industrious inventor archetype for a while now. I decided to do bugs because beetle people were a cool idea. After this thread I can't just shoe horn in the bug race. They have to be special. Moths are definitely going to be a part of it. I'm thinking it will go something like this.

Warrior: A beetle. Larger than other classes, hard shell and maybe two sets of arms for more weapons.

Wizards: Definitely Moths. Fluffy spell casters and marginal flyers.

Waywards: I have no idea yet. Maybe a mantis. Mantises are cool.

Workers: Ants maybe.

I'm fairly sure that moths don't eat clothing directly, it's their larva that goes bananas for that stuff.

Most moths don't eat anything, living their final days in search of mates before they die of starvation. Those that do eat tend go for high-value foods like nectar, honey raided from bee's nests, and in the case of one Russian species, blood.

They do.

I found one eating my best suit one time. It had its face buried in a little hole in the sleeve it had made, and was feasting with great enthusiasm until I blew it to bits with an electrified bug swatter.

It's funny, but its last meal was twice as expensive as the costliest dinner I've ever enjoyed.

Alright.


Well, technically, it's not really a God. Or it kind of is. I haven't decided yet.

Let's just start with the beginning.

In the setting I am trying to create, there are no such things as atoms. Everything is made out of an extremely small silk-like texture. Even metaphysical things like spirits, music, Magick/Mana/Magicka, and Reality itself.

So, I thought I would make the Chief Deity of my setting a Moth. Haven't chosen a name yet, though. Originally, it was going to be some sort of gigantic flying whale, but yeah.
I could explain some more, but I would have to delve deeper into the setting, something which isn't really completed.

Sorry if you expected something more complete, I just thought of it now.

The question could be rephrased:

> Is it good?
As it is, it seems a little selfish. Would they be so unconcerned with matters outside themselves? The last house could be one of morality, as acts purely for the sun may not be beautiful (or great for anyone), and acts purely for beauty may not be for the sun (or great for moths or anyone else).

I remember when I was thinking of a moth race, I also tried to think of a foil that embodies everything they aren't. Moths are light, delicate, and friendly creatures, so I thought, what would be something that's heavy, sturdy, and very surly? First thing that came to mind was a crab. And because the sound of crab claws in cartoons is often indicated with castanets, I figured that crabmen would have Spanish accents.

Sounds neat, that reality is really just a complex, universal tapestry. A masterstroke of living artistry from the gods. Would the moth-god have woven it? They seem to be the ones who eat it. Is there also a spider-god who weaves? Could make sense in interaction: a weaver who creates and an artist who cuts and creates.

My own moth race was part of a fable of predator and prey: the spider (allegory for a spider race) learning the first ancient magics through building the web as a kind of dreamcatcher, and the moth (allegory for mothrin) entangled in it becoming its first disciple. The moth then brought this knowledge to the bat (allegory for vampires), who brought this knowledge to the human.

>> No.30983303

>>30983236

If anything, they could wrap their wings around themselves to serve as a colorful dress or coat. That might be enough to pass for modesty among other races.

Any clothing they would wear would have to deal with two sets of wings and arms, so it might be somewhat simple underneath that.

>> No.30983320

>>30983236
Fluff is largely sufficient for modesty normally, but depending on how much time they spend around other races they might pick up other behaviour, particularly if they start to feel self-conscious about not wearing clothes when everyone else does. Aside from adopting elements of dress from other cultures they deal frequently with, they probably have their own culture of ornamentation- I imagine plain moths tend to dye their fluff, while more naturally colourful ones accentuate their natural pigments with jewelery or sashes.

Moth silk is produced only from the cocoon you make once in your life, making it a very, very precious thing to you. Typically, such silk is made into the finest finery, worn for festivals.

Spider silk is cultivated and grown in large quantities and woven together, being pretty but ultimately of little value.

>>30983055
For the most part, they avoid the rest of the world (as other creatures are less beautiful), occasionally trading for what they cannot make, such as finer metalwork. Adventurers are quite rare, and only really exist when the priests miscount the larvae in a hatching.

Exiles, on the other hand, are bleached before being thrown out. It takes a lot of shit to get exiled.
