    Necris/Krall.... paired? What?

    Ok, Necris is my favorite people of all. i have said that many times. They stared [for me ] in UT99.... and kinda made an appearence in 2K4, but not really. In both accounts they were solo....


    and suddenly the necris have new lackeys... the krall.

    from the OFFICIAL trailer it says [ in a very loose interpretation ]

    "then the necris armies attacked...."

    and the video shows NOT ONE necris player. They are all krall. when did this pairing take place? is there any media on it.? i would love to know.


    thanks

    The Krall are a mercenary/slave race hired/enslaved by the Necris. They are the cannon fodder of the Necris infantry.

    I assume we'll learn more about the backstory in the single player game.

        I was nailed the first time I heard about it as well. I just assume that the U1 and the UT3 Krall are two seperate races that happen to share the same name.

        UT3 seems to have alot of revelations in store for the Unreal universe.

          I certainly hope so... EPIC.. don't trash the story by making the necris and krall connected by anything besides $$ please.!

                Ah, you don't have to assume that. Mort has it right:

                "The Krall are a mercenary/slave race hired/enslaved by the Necris. They are the cannon fodder of the Necris infantry."

                The Krall are just tools used by different alien races like the Skarrj and the Necris. I do think we need to know more about the Necris, though, considering how Nanoblack figures into things. For example if humans like Lauren or Brock become Necris somehow, perhaps through Nanoblack, why couldn't Nali, Krall or Skaarj do the same? Or Juggernauts, Gen Mo' Kai or Izarians.

                This Nanoblack threat could be bigger than we thought.

                  I'm sure these Krall are the same as the krall from unreal, but obviously they can do alot more with their look now the polycount is not like 10. I've just played and completed unreal for the first time, and it seemed to me the krall are not quite dumb enough to be enslaved by the skaarj - im pretty sure they are paid and have a rank structure in their groups. They write in books you find in unreal about how the 'general' was being a ***** to the other men, or how lousy the skaarj treat them and how they cant wait to get back to their home planet. I have no idea what they've done with the skaarj in this iteration but i dont think the necris are anymore powerful than them, so i rekon the krall are employed again - and probably treated better than under the skaarj.

                  Obviously dumber beasts like the huge rock throwing things...behemoths or whatever they are were enslaved - just told to guard something and given food or whatever.

                      Yep, and the Krall weren't too happy about it either.

                      Maybe this nanoblack stuff explains the numerous differences between the Krall variants. In Unreal Krall didn't jump over 10 metres a time nor were they green...

                        ok, here is another thing.


                        can someone give me a link explaining this nanoblack thing? How did that get started.?

                            Hey, those Necris aren't dumb. If you were going to go invading someone, wouldn't you want a pack of Krall mercenaries leading the way?

                            Sort of like the US's Blackwater Corporation, Unreal style. Political satire?

                              ok ok, point made


                              I would like to have herds and herds of mere animals leading the charge, your right.
