"a single Dnyarri could psychically control an entire planet" In fact a single dnyarri can control a much larger radius, one the size of umgah controlled space a fact demenstrated by the fact that any Umgah you meet before dealing with the talkign pet are under its direct control. regardless of their position in hyperspace

One has to remember that we do not know how similar the neo-Dynarri (which took over the Umgah) is to its Dnyarri ancestors. Concerning the original Dnyarri's powers, the RPRG states, "With these powers, a single Dnyarri can hold an entire planet enthralled." It's possible that the Umgah modifications might have boosted the neo-Dnyarri's psychic capabilities. But lacking any definitive knowledge, IMO it's best to state what we do know. I don't know if that satisfies your question, but that's the reasoning behind the statement as I understand it. --Fyzixfighter 03:54, 25 August 2007 (CEST)
Indeed. The convention has been to mention whatever we know about the ancient Dnyarri here and whatever we know about the neo-Dnyarri in the Talking Pet article. That's why we don't have an image here (we could use the image from the RPRG, though, but as far as I know, it's not copyrighted by TFB, but by someone else). And even in the Talking Pet article we can't mention that he can control an entire SoI, as maybe he just issued beforehand some orders, such as "patrol and destroy any interlopers, return when fuel is nearly exhausted", just like he did with The Captain ("Find death at the hands of your enemy").

I think that their idea may have come from Asimov's novel: Lucky Starr and the Oceans of Venus. It features a mind-controlling frog, which Lucky identifies and defeats. May worth a line or two, if it is plausible.

Keep up the good work!
