The all new and powerful Giganommoth
« on: July 22, 2006, 12:08:29 am »
The Garganommoths were pretty cool, but they we're just for my spore creature (Plus they lacked of originality) here's my creature that I will use in RPGs (I modified there culture and interactivity so that I can be more sociable and involved into Spore RPGs) although if possible, it will be used for my creature in spore.

The Giganommoths

(Full grown Male) Full sized and much clearer image here: http://img154.imageshack.us/img154/8758/giganommothjf0.png

Abilities (Male): Can break ultra-hard material such as Borazon with their "Anvil fists" which instantly absorbs almost any shock, can hold their breaths for 10 minutes and are very adaptable to pressure changes. Male Giganommoths have an excellent immune system. When in battle, they can litteraly rip apart most of there foes.
Abilities (Female): Can break ultra-hard material with their "Anvil fists" but they have to put alot more effort in it then the males and can hold their breaths for 8 minutes and are pretty adaptable to pressure changes. Female Giganommoths have an excellent immune system.

Brief History
Giganommoths (Especially the males) were not always big muscular benemoths. Their species discovered "genetic engineering" which was used to enhence their strenghts and abilities. This was made with the help of extreme ammounts of radiation which in the first try-outs ended as monstrosities and failures. A couple of centuries later, they mastered it. They are still trying to find a way to go further with genetic enhancements. They also had a war over it. There were groups of Giganommoths who were against the WGEP (World-wide Genetic Enhancement Program. Giganommoths have also researched in cybernetics which later allowed them to make mechanical implants to people who had lost body parts or had poor organs. War veterants usually end up with 65% of their bodies becoming mechanical.

The gender ratio of scientists is more then 80% female and the gender ration of soldiers is usually around 75% male (This is obviously caused by the fact that most female are smarter then males and that all males are stronger then females)

More info to come soon..

Well you would Opera :P

Dude... that thing looks like its on steroids. Did it take tips from Jose Conseco? haha

Seriously... owwness when that beast hits you.

Nifty picture. I think they'd be a welcome addition. But I have a few things to ask. Why'd you put length as well as height? A vertical standing creature is measured in height, a horizontal creature is measured in length. And wouldn't a 750 year life span be a bit... Much? This creatures body would have to be so quick at regenerating its aged cells that it would be like Wolverine from X-Men. 350 in the Space Age is a high range. As to lifting capacity and body weight, the two are a bit disproportionate. Elephants can drag a few tons but an elephant also weighs a few, and it can't even come close to lifting them. Plus, this creature is 16 feet of pure muscle more or less. It'd weight at LEAST a ton. They're the same height as some Loricatii and a Loricatus weighs 1.2 tons (2400 pounds. Keep in mind they're a slender species, not the Hulk's big brother like yours). So if you want a male of this species to be able to lift a ton, increase their weight to around 13,000 pounds. And Genetic Engineering. Just HOW late into their species development did they discover this? Did they even discover the microscope before it? Gene modification isn't an art that develops slowly, it'd take a century at most to unlock most secrets.

Buuuuuut other than that, I like 'em.

Hang on, there's a few things that I might've gotten wrong, please correct me if so:
#1 This is what I meant: Height (Head to toe) lenght (front of body to tail).......yeah I guess I shouldn't have to put the lenght :)
#2 Yeah it is a bit long, I mainly got the long lifespan idea from the protoss.
#3 Really? That fast?.....does it have to do anything with their age cause if it does, I'll lower their lifespan ???
#4 350 what? years?
#5 That idea sort of came from the hulk....I might change it
#6 Hang on, is 1500 pounds = 1,5 tons? Or is it 15000 pounds = 1,5 tons? ???
#7 I'd say that if it were in our timeline, it'd be a hundred years in the past. It wasn't the first discovery made by the Giganommoths, but it was certainly the most known one in their history.

The Protoss aren't the best thing to go off really... And yes, the regeneration has to do with age. The reason humans change, wrinkle, and shift as they age is because our regeneration speed decreases. That's why children heal cuts in a minute and an adult in ten. And yes, I did mean years. And lastly, a ton is 2000 pounds. You said you wanted every one of the males to be able to lift 7 tons, which is about 14,000 pounds, so 13,000 pounds as a base weight would mean it'd be really hard to lift anyway, but they could at least drag it. Around 28,000 pounds in weight would make it easy. That's 14 tons by the way.

As to your creature learning genetic engineering, that seems acceptable.

Lol, I can picture a bag full of Omic being shovelled into these guys mouths, alive.

But terminator, really, would they eat them?
