So the Ilii gradually abandoned their habitations on land when humans began moving to settle there, and went to live on the continental shelf. But what will happen in 200 or so years when some technological human civilization (probably the Verdurians) invents scuba-diving, bathyscapes, and begins to explore the ocean floor. What will happen when they discover the Iliu settlements? And what will happen if people are inspired by the Ilii's example to try to make their own under-sea habitats? How would they react?

My thoughts are that, depending on their level of technological advancement, it would either be a repeat of the colonization of the Americas by the Europeans (something that always depresses me, even though I'm completely white), or it would be a matter of time before hostilities broke out between the two peoples.

Unfortunately, I really can't see the possibility of civil, courteous relations remaining for an extended period of time. Factions on both sides--even if they aren't the respective governments themselves--are going to covet their neighbor's things. As the old saying goes, the grass is always greener or, in this case, the seaweed. Resources, technology, land on the seafloor, etc. are all going to be points of contention.

Now, certainly it would take a while for things to get to this point, and there's always the limiting factor in that the Verdurians (or any other land-based species) are simply not designed for this kind of environment, and they'd have to continually return to a dry place (undersea colony, a ship or submarine, or dry land itself). Also, depending on the conditions, there may not be anything that the Verdurians see as valuable, other than the scientific information that can be gathered there--not exactly a commodity, if you know what I mean.

Seems to me that either the situation will become one of strife, or contact between the Verdurians and the Ilii would be minimal at best for a long, long time.

Hallo!

This begs the question whether the Verdurians or whoever want to settle on the ocean floor at all. If we take our world as an example: undersea cities were predicted by many, and they would be technologically possible by now, but yet there are none - because nobody wants to live in what is the ultimate cold, dark and damp place.
