The Metamorphosis Plague for example, is it spawned by admins or is it really a result of events that happened in game? Does it exist and does it alter species or do the admins pick people and alter their species?

The 'Derra Virus' is a means whereby a player can choose to become a species which has just been discovered and is intended as a tool to be able to populate a new species. It is a game mechanic chosen by players so you cannot 'catch' it unless you choose to do so.

It works by allowing a change species option for up to 2 weeks after a new species is discovered in game.

More acurately its a way to mesh in-game RP with game mechanics, giving a possible reasoning for a sudden change in race. Its also controlled by the player.

Ka`rla, technically the Derra Virus and Metamorphosis plague are 2 different things. The Derra Virus was used to explain hostilities in the Dera System for combat beta while, if I recall correctly, the Metamorphosis plague is RP'd as being caused by the attempt of creating a cure for the Derra Virus.

But no. Like others have said, the Metamorphosis plague is just an IC way of explaining the race changing feature.


That's got to smarts.
