The Orcana

A benevolent race of anthropomorphic porpoise-like beings. Theirs is a culture that has risen from conflict to embrace enlightenment through knowledge and philosophy.

The cultural theme for these guys is advanced Atlantean. Think mostly Greco-Roman with a high-tech vein.

Orcana technology is derived from biochemical principles and they can harness the potential power from those kinds of reactions. Bioluminescent strips (as illustrated in the ship design) will be prevalent in their architecture and will serve to illustrate the nature of their technology.

Current features:
  • Character customization with options for fin styles, patterns, and pattern colors
  • Animated tails
  • Custom name generator
  • Craft-able Orcana flag
  • Starting weapon (trident)
  • Craft-able tridents for all tiers
  • Craft-able boltguns for all tiers with custom projectiles
  • Tiers 1 - 4 armor
  • 4 starting outfits - toga, active, formal, and casual (all craft-able with the spinning wheel.)
  • A set of coral furniture
  • Orcana Cities
  • Orcana colonists (villager, merchant, chef, guard, and a new Orcana Scholar Merchant)
  • All 8 ship tiers
  • On-ship pet
  • Racial mech bodies
  • 3 new farmables (2 new plants and farmable ember coral)
  • New recipes using new farmables (with cooking collection entries)
  • New Orcana fossils (with fossil collection entry)
  • New Giant Coral biome

Coming Soon / WIP:
  • More City Improvements
  • More Armor sets
  • Giant Coral microdungeons
  • Villages/Outposts
  • More Codices

Future Features:
  • Respawn animation
  • Themed Dungeon
  • Glowing rune and/or Greek alphabet tiles (Possibly even an alphabet of my own design?)

NOTE: You will need a race extension mod for this to work.

Going to have to make another Orcana playthrough again! WOW the nostalgia is going to hit HARD! Also, been a while since I used the Orcana ship. Still, to this date, is my fave racial ship.

Three years later, the king hath returned. Cool.

i am excited for the update hopefully 2022 ?

I was thinking that a fancier name to differentiate Orcana from Arcana would be to call your mod "Orcana de Atlantise". I added Atlantise as a fancy play on Atlantis which is something you said your mod was partly inspired by. Just a suggestion. :)

Cool mod! Even if it's not fully polished I'm glad it's functional!
Maybe one day it'll be completed and that would be awesome, but it works well enough for now that I can't really complain!

@A.VMF Not "wrongo," just taking longer than expected because the rest of life has been happening more often than I'd like.
Ripto Jul 17, 2021 @ 11:18pm There is an addon for this mod here that adds Orcana as a fishmonger NPC for the ITA-Dragon Temple mod!

idea for the discription of the titanium armor: this armor is masterfully crafted for those who have proven themselves in countless battles and years of service

Same! Orcana is my favorite, along with the Saturnians. I was always fascinated by orcas and moths since I was a kid. Can't wait for the update! <3
