The Sun Eaters
The Yma are a collection of races dedicated to ecological protection and non-interference.
They will be the most numerous of the cultures exploring the Artifact but because of thier beliefs they will do so almost entirely from the air.
Yma hovercones will take one researcher over a wide territory before linking back with the great Yma orbital motherships.
The Yma are avowed pacifists and have only defensive weaponry on thier motherships. That being said they have access to the most advanced technology that the Rahnian Sphere can provide.
They have flatly stated that they wish to be a clearing house for information about the Artifact and will share thier maps and findings with all those cultures that are employed in the exploration endevor.
