Sorry; this may have been explained on Conculture. The Gwr are the other
species on Cindu; by common consent (and certainly in their own view)
they're very clever, and for centuries were responsible for most
technological/theoretical advances. Like us, they have a bad habit of
putting their knowledge into practice even if common sense might suggest
restraint. After their nuclear exchange about 1000 years ago, they became a
little more careful; but the Kash remain distrustful.
How many Gwr does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Well, first, one to explain the principles of electricity.....
