we are actually saying the same thing, tomato/tomatoe. although
i did not elaborate much, i refer to tech levels not in a global sense,
but in particular areas as you suggest. the point i was attempting to
stress was that everyone's universe needs to determine how situations
stealth/dection are handled.
different races operate differently and the creator determines what
"bent" they have. as you said above, the humans in GZG adapted thru
diverse means, while the kra'vak refined a few systems. those are
racial bents/characteristics. i appreciate you describing this
since it provides more ways for me to design races.
