A Brief Summary of the Greckan
Deep in the recesses of the universe, Erchius grows and develops. This resource, highly desired for the development of FTL drives, is more advanced than previously thought.

The events of the Erchius Mining Facility aren't the only occurance of Erchius infecting a host. In fact, a new species has been born of this union. The Greckan have emerged on a quest for knowledge. Knowledge of Erchius, the universe, what they truly are, and why they were created...

Greckan are composed of hybrid, organic-mineral structures. With their crystal features being a side effect of the ability for Erchius to alter their genetic code.

The Greckan value architecture and fine artisan crafts. This is stemming from the social hierarchy that exists due to the crystals that grow from their skulls.

Despite their skilled craft ranging from house wares to exquisite weapons, Greckan value diplomacy above conflict. They retain peace as they continue their hunt for knowledge of the mystery of Erchius and their own existence.

its a shame this mod seems to be dead... golemancy sounds super cool (i always love conjurer classes)... someone should try to get in contact with the mod makers and either try to boot their bums back into gear or see if they can get permissiont o work on the mod themselves (shame i dont know anything about modding or id ask myself)
