    Yup!

    Just like you can't inherit your Mom's nose job, if Mom's a Djinn you get still get Mom's Sterling soul shell, just like she had when she was born.

    That said, just like your Mom's drinking while pregnant can still have side effects, Mom being a Djinn causes a few side effects as well -- hence "Djinned" babies.

    Celigo is a big deal because of the Endless.

    Prior to the Rise of Celigo, the Endless were the only unifying force of the Celeste -- what power the Celeste had was usually localized to different regions on various planets, with little to no coordination with Celeste on other worlds outside of the Endless providing a convenient out if any of these regions ended up in trouble or toppled (Extract Celeste, put 'em somewhere else, lather, rinse repeat). The Endless were still powerful -- the largest of the extraplanetary organizations, in fact -- but without a planet of their own they could only exert so much force on other worlds.

    With the Rise of Celigo, the Endless found they could maintain much of their old influence on other worlds as well as that of Celigo's by leveraging the one major asset of the Endless, their large spacefaring astry (i.e. the Star Organization). Since the Star Org was self-sustaining without Celigo thanks to having various factions and recruitment points all across the Connection, Celigo can now support a much larger force than other worlds can sustain, which naturally threatens the balance between Celigo and these other worlds.

    Whether you want to call them the Celigan Empire or the Endless Empire depends on how much you want to (de)moralize your troops.

    There is SOME chance. Keep in mind, when I say "some", I mean it's in the same realm of possibility of me coding up an android app -- it becomes far more likely the more I get told I need to add some experience in it to my portfolio. The more I can break a task down into granular bits and pieces, the better.

    (It may or may not help that J.P. (BugPudding) has a heap more experience at it than I do... helps that he knows what he's talking about and could teach me, doesn't help that he's probably a lot better at it than I'd be.)

    I'm pretty sure that, similar to drinking your own urine to survive, the added energy your body requires to continue past that point (assuming no improvement in the foreseeable future) makes it not worth it unless you're working to a literal deadline here.

    Also, what about intermediary solutions like excising portions of the muscle / fatty tissue vs. just hacking indiscriminately?

    I assume I'm waiting for a rescue squad in this scenario -- i.e. that my legs will not be necessary from this point in otherwise -- but I would suspect that I may as well preserve the skeletal structure as long as I can in the hopes that the muscles can be replaced when I'm rescued (through organ donation or regrowth), vs. skeletal structure (which can't).

    If I'm not holding out hope for eventual rescue at this point, I can't imagine the added pain of amputation in exchange for a little more time alive is going to be worth it.

    It's limited by the power provided by the starter Djinn in the first place, unless (as hinted last question), you manage to 'upgrade' the artifact.

    A Reaper's Artifact is as powerful as it needs to be -- after that initial charge, it powers itself indefinitely.

    However much damage it did last time is enough for it to inflict that damage again, making the Artifact a perpetual motion (er, pain?) machine, with one notable exception: you can't make an Artifact LESS powerful...

    No. They can't perform magic, either. :-p

    A lot of it comes down to which ones I can answer right then (some of them are weird and take a little time to think up a sensible answer), some are duplicates (so I'll answer whichever one looks like the better version, and delete the other), which are currently relevant to the action in the story, and basically whether or not I feel like it right then.

    I try to space out answers, though.

    Nope.

    Zombies are the stable, "fail-safe" form for anyone who Shatters but doesn't manage to become a Djinn before they die. It's not reversible.

    Beardedness is an odd trait to select for, and no one "fuzzy" race is 100% bearded or 100% beard-free.

    And yes, we have a few bearded ladies among our races as well -- one of those races, ironically enough, is the Vidian. (It's usually limited to some impressive sideburns, though).
