three months ago, Josh Smith suggested that ... OK, by the numbers

1)  Typhon made contact with Inhumi, while his interstellar empire was at
it's glory

2) agreed to send "tribute" of human cargo

3) WHOOPS!  did he forget to tell the Inhumi of the LEGIONS of mechanical
invasion warriors he'd be sending?  Must have slipped his mind :) !

so basically, the whole whorl was a Trojan horse ... a scheme of Typhon's to
take over the Inhumi with an  invasion force that could dominate, one that
the Inhumi wouldn't have power over ... and that's why the chems have human
personalities .... because once the humans were devoured, they'd have to be
in charge of the campaign

OK, that's it for now .. Hat
