It’s been a long time since we first heard of, and fell in love with, the quaggan, so today’s blog post from Jeff Grubb has been met with many pleased fans. The article delves into not only the biological and social aspects of the species, but also goes over their history, faith and how the quaggan were developed as a whole. Here's an excerpt:
Quaggans are unfailingly polite, so much so that they consider most self-reference to be offensive and self-centered. As a result, they rarely use the pronouns "me," "my," or "I," instead preferring to use the general term "quaggan." As a result, conversations with quaggans may frustrate more direct races. The phrase "I’ve lost my pet fish. I’m sad" becomes "Quaggan has lost quaggan’s pet fish. Quaggan is sad." This manner of speech leads many to assume the quaggans are childlike or less intelligent. The quaggans are actually quite wise, but in ways that are different from most other races.
Other races generally regard quaggans as "kind, innocuous creatures—unless pushed." The quaggans themselves would prefer to lead quiet lives. They will move out of the way of more aggressive races if they are simply told to leave. The problem is that, due to ever-increasing attacks on their people by hostile races such as the krait, there is no place left for them to run.
