The X'ptho were a race of conquerors from a distant star, and by 3210 they controlled 1/2 the know galaxy. But for reasons unknown, around 3516 they fled back to their homeworld, and kill anyone who goes near. the main part of their army consisted of Ray gunners, who fired beams that could kill over long distances. Often riding scutlix, they were a formidable foe. They also were experts at strategy and were super smart, if bloodthirsty. They were strong, fast, and some had the power to turn invisible (nightscales). They used spaceships to get around, and had a primitive version of the portal gun.
