"Mad Scientists are extremely intelligent yet incredibly unstable. They find all other races inferior to their race, and wish nothing but to conquer the galaxy. They will stop at nothing to complete an experiment even if one hundred or more lives hang in the balance. The Galaxy is simply a sandbox."
Mad Scientists are neutral at first, but don't care if you break the Galactic Code unless a WMD is used on them. Mad Scientists have a Technocracy as a government, and speak with a Fast, Victorian, and Maniac-like voice in the Tenor range.
Mad Scientist Unique PowerEdit
The Mad Scientist acquires Xena Plague. It creates a virus that kills all sapient life on a planet, however, it cannot be colonized by your own empire. This does not break galactic code, and there will be a cloud of green smoke in the planets atmosphere that kills enemy ships. However, it will make a -50 Killing our Citizens bonus if use on a space-faring empire.
Gaining The Mad Scientist ArchetypeEdit
To become a Mad Scientist, one must have a red card, as well as three blue cards if starting from Cell stage, and you must.
First you must ally with an empire following this philosophy with a strength factor of 4 or 5, then you may request to become 'like' them from the mission interface. After paying §10,000,000, the mission given is to Destroy three species. Upon completion return to claim your reward and you will change your philosophy and associated archetype, losing your old superpower and gaining the Mad Scientist's Xena Plague power.
Mad Scientists PhilosophyEdit
Hahaha! We the (Mad Scientist) laugh at your foolish unintelligent requests. We are all geniuses and are intelligent and far superior to a foolish mortal darwinian defect. We will one day rule the galaxy, so make nice while you still can. We will one day smite you into space dust but no hard feelings. . . right?? We love to mess with nature, for we are at a divine level of existence greater than all others. We believe in the Philosophy of Testing. Which is lead by the all powerful Books of Dark Matter. All other philosophies are use less. . . Useless! Yesss! Our goal is to create the ultimate monster. . . WE LOVE MAKING MONSTERS and developing eccosystems or BURNING THEM TO THE GROUND!! Thank-you."
Fast, Victorian, and Maniac-like, in the Tenor range.
