    Yes, they would be a scare. Because scare sounds mooooorrrre 1337 than scary!

    (This translocator is 1337!)

    (Hope it hasn't been too long you've played ONP ;-)...)

    I think that the skarrj homeworld would look like some kind of jungle ( before ) combined with all kinds of skarrj facilities and buildings but the skarrj came to na pali they diden't live there from the begining and
    nobody mentioned what the skarrj homeworld would be like so the only thing to emagine what would it look like,but where two maps for ut under the mod catagory jailbreak that showed off the planet,icy and cold combined with futuristic building and small pools of frozen water with tentacles frozen inside them.also mentioned in ut 2004 in charecter bios to the skarrj guys who joined the tournament that they belong into clans so it could be that there were on the skarrj homeworld differn't clans that had there territories and were all controled by a mega queen (also mentioned ).

    well i think this crap makes sense dont u?

    Megaqueen? Sounds like a new Skaarj Queen to me. I accept your Challenge.

    BTW, I have my own scenarios:

    Operation Nightmare

    Night. A perfect setting for a Skaarj Assasin, like you. You are attempting to kill a subject. You grab your rifle, engage Sniper mode on the unwaring target, pull the trigger and BANG! Subject Ternimated. Mision accomplished. You leave the scenery unnoticed....

    Tonight, you are attempting to kill an important commander of the TCA: Max Derek. Unfortuneatly for all Assasins, his Base is Heavily Guarded, and you won't dare getting in; unless in night.

    Max Derek is known as a fierce Sniper-Killer Commander; snipe him too late and he's going to frag you on the skull.

    It's always a good thing you have your invisibility on... he won't snipe you down in night, even when noticing your actions.

    As the night falls, you grab your Rifle, set it to snpier mode, and await the kill.....

    So, bumping this into the next decade.
    What do you have in mind when it comes to the Skaarj home world ?

    By any chance, is there already a map(pack) with this theme....?
    Ah, probably not but it would be awesome.

    There's the New Alcatraz map pack, where you are a skaarj and have to do skaarjy things and murder the queen on a homeworldish type planet. iirc. and I probably don't :p

    Actually Unreal 2 was supposed to be in Skaarj homeworld at first. Got that info from Epic themselves. It was originally to be direct followup to Unreal.

    Always figured the Skaarj homeworld is a temperate climate, for the most part. That the Skaarj are the dominant species on their world and in their galaxy. Given they tend to enslave other species (Krall, Nali, those ape like things in U2, etc) this largely bears out.

    So a temperate world, possibly with as much swamps as deserts.

    Their galaxy? Then they must've found a great loophole in intergalactic travel...:D
    If only we'd find out about it...

    Yeah I know, bold move wasn't it. I'd never dare try doing such a thing nowadays.
    Young and foolish, ah.

    Maybe the Skaarj were busy colonizing the galaxy, kinda like the wraith in SGA.
    Or maybe they were just bored and bumped into Napali and figured "well hey, we've been floating in emptiness for ages, why not have some fun and harass these four armed nerds."

    And then they found out about the tarydium mines :D

    Well...

    ...largely only Star Trek, and a few other series, has that "can't travel outside of our galaxy" issue. Even in Marvel Comics most of the major alien races live outside the Milky Way Galaxy.

    Intergalactic travel is more common in most fandoms than most would immediately think.

    munch munch munch

    There's actually a 2 novel limited series based on Unreal, called 'Unreal', where it explains the Skaarj stuck on NaPali for 2 reasons.

    1) The energy resources.
    2) The Nali are delicious.

    A galaxy is F****** huge bro. It would be quite hard to 'conquer' one.

    Yet there are numerous series where one power has conquered an entire galaxy. Star Wars, several different alien races in Marvel Comics, etc.

    I would think it would be some kind of sub-tropical climate, much akin to a Southeast Asian jungle.

    I personally thought the Skaarj where from NaPali.
