Winding Down by Abiogenisis Winding Down by Abiogenisis
Many birrin, being pleasurably susceptible to many of the psychoactive defence compounds found in their planetsí plants, have developed complex rituals around recreational drug use.

The practices are not universally accepted, and many societies have strict controls to reduce their economic impacts. Others embrace them to such an extent that they have become an essential part of the daily ritual, as is the case with the Southern Chey nations: Before and after work many Chey stop at their local smoking bars to partake in a variety of substances both inhaled and ingested. As community focal points, smoking houses are also places for social interactions, and as a way to prepare for, or wind down from, the daysí pressures.

Smoking houses have a long history, this example predating the widespread collapse of birrin society millennia ago. Restored by wealthy locals as civilisation recovered, the interior was painted a calming blue to lend an air of tranquillity. To avoid the smoke damaging their garments, many regulars wear blue smoking suits infused with years of volatile chemical scents.

I love the 1970's sci-fi vibe. The room, the clothes, the Birrin themselves all have that classic look to them.

I want to see some Birrin interacting with humans. I know you have that one picture with the toddler Birrin and human, but I'd like to see some adults of both species interact.

This is cool. But what happened to actual organic humans? Did they all become meta humans? I really wish I could see some Birrin and Humans not just meeting, but interacting. It would be a great starting point for an awesome story.

Some did, some are half way between, some became half-animal. There are now lots of gradients of different types of 'human'.

Mostly they use plants as spices to flavour meat, but they can turn some plants into protein foods like tofu

Some would have effects, some not, some might be toxic. I think mostly it would be quite random.
