The Vrudok have been isolated up to this point and maintain
their own fairly advanced tech curve. Their weapons don’t tend
to be subtle, and they tend to use biological bombs to wipe out
existing ecosystems and replace them with their own.
Bahalthair chose to
live a simple, anachronistic lifestyle. They maintain a small
defense force that also performs trade duties bringing home only
the most practical of goods and technologies.

Twilight was essentially unsettled during the galactic
Age. The Vrudok and
Ptatl were both very young races and had not
left the confines of their homeworlds until the early
times, essentially making their first voyages into space as the
powers of the Prodigal Void made their second. None of the
Stroud worlds were inhabited by more than primitive life.
