Mechanika Inwazja Motywy Assimilating Hive


Assimilating hive / Asymilujący rój

Co to jest:

This variant of the hive is trying to expand as far as possible and to convert everything which is possible to be converted. It tries to become self-sustaining and to eliminate any type of danger; to get the critical mass enough to become safe from the environment.
In particular, assimilating hive tries to create the communication channels and resource channels to power the core. It is able to assimilate creatures and entities and to specialize particular drones to its purpose. Not malicious by nature, if something does not stand in the way of the hive it is being ignored.
As an opponent, this one does not have its “soul”. It is a hive. It is a clockwork machine. It rarely, if ever, has a goal – it usually has a purpose it wants to fulfill.
Doesn’t make it not dangerous, though.
