Fun facts


  • Hearing: ranges similar to stock snow leopard.
  • Daytime Vision: average. Will wear eyeshades in bright light.
  • Dark Vision: thanks to a tapetum lucidum similar to other felids, he can see well in low-light settings.
  • Sense of smell: ranges similar to stock snow leopard.


  • Modified forepaws, not hands. Rudimentary opposable thumb. Can manipulate small objects between “fingers”, but they're really more suited for climbing, hunting/field-dressing prey, etc…
  • Digestive tract genetically modified to allow for omnivorous diet.
  • Has Kirru version of Sol System recom “spacer” genetic hack. Increased resistance to radiation, minimalized muscle/bone loss in microgravity, etc…

OOC Information

Hagalaz is one of Furscape's headwizards, and is responsible for:

  • Co-creation and enforcement of Furscape's rules.
  • Enforcing Furscape's existing theme, and proposing ideas for Roleplay Staff to consider for inclusion in the game's setting.

He also specializes in these areas:

  • Spaceship construction and operations (LITE and SCRAT systems and vehiclepose).
  • Astroengineering - temporary and permanent objects on the space grid. Placement only occurs with RP staff approval.
  • Belters and humans ('pure-strain' and 'transhuman/posthuman').
  • Random trivia and IC/OOC MUCK history (since 2003).

Hagalaz does NOT:

  • @APPROVE new characters (although he can and will rescind approval if he finds something that violates Furscape's rules).
  • Override decisions made by Roleplay Staff as a group regarding Furscape's theme. In the event that a single member of Roleplay Staff makes a decision that doesn't seem to fit Furscape's theme, he will call the question before a quorum of Roleplay Staff members (This hasn't happened yet, by the way. Furscape has a very competent Roleplay Staff, and I hope you will trust their judgement as much as I do - H.).
  • Add new construction to other realm managers' domains. Please check that area's “realm” information and talk to the manager responsible first.
  • Argue with players about Furscape's theme or whether a particular technology should be allowed. Friendly discussion regarding the MUCK's 'hard science fiction' theme and speculation about proposed technologies are acceptable, but keep it polite.
