Why not post it here?

I have no idea.......... Well actually, If I can't post images on spec, I'll just do it here. And I'm doing it on spec because it's slightly a world building project and i saw what happened to Ramjet 4 :o

Having tongue itself isn't alien.
0, It's not that they have have tongues it's because they walk on tongues. I know it's probably not such a unique idea but it seemed great a 10 pm at night ;D

Hey great creature grieve!

Hey forgot to mention this.
There tongues are not really tongues, but internal antenna (they evolved from subterranean hive creatures(the Kinshoius) but I still like to call them tongues :D They're the army knife of "tongues" being able to taste, smell, walk and even hear! My first name for them was the Lingopodes (know your latin) but my first creation was sentient, so I renamed them the Kinshoius (plural). Lingopodes became Kinshoi's "vertebrates", having tongue front legs and true back legs pattern.

Not to rain on your parade but I made a "Bellyfaced Tonguewalker" before Spore even came out.

I also made a "Paraglider Tongue" if we are going to get into tongue themed aliens.

Yes, after many errm, minutes thinking about how crap my imagination was, I had it! I was thinking for a totally original alien for my new planet and then BINGO! Why not walk on your tongue!...Tonguetastic ;D....


I'm afraid I'm not going to post this creature on these forums, instead I'm going to move this project to http://s1.zetaboards.com/Conceptual_Evolution/forum/236091/9/ (http://s1.zetaboards.com/Conceptual_Evolution/forum/236091/9/) or the spec forums.
If your interested in these guys, I can't post images but I can try and describe it..

DING BA DOO!
over and out...

I think I made one of these months ago.

The Frug?

The walked on their massive tongues, their females were extremely intelligent, their males were idiots, and their legs mostly burst from the slightest hit.

Nice to get Hydro in my thread, even if you're criticizing my creature. And blag, Hydro and all others who want to "this is not unique", don't. BUT.....Explain more about the frugs and toungewalkers biology! I am trying to create a realistic creature (not that yours is not realistic).
And I've decided that there "tongues" do not taste or smell. They have a gastropod based mouth, that is to say that they first cut of a piece of food with a radula (this is the organ with taste buds) or swallowed it whole. They then bath it in highly corrosive saliva in a crop, like a birds, and then finally send it down into a spiral intestine (inspired by sharks and there crop replaces there stomach). Although I should think about there planet first, I decided to concentrate on the Kinshoius. Because they have a subterranean history they have poor, extremely light sensitive and colour blind eyes. Having a taste 50 times better than humans (they can also smell through there true tongues and have inferred vision, through there true tongues) taste is important in their culture so there food taste unbelievably amazing but usually have a bland texture due to swallowing whole. There houses are reminiscent to Earth semi-cave houses. My old version were huge, slanted poles dug into the ground, like skyscrapers going both down and up.

15 minutes of thinking...

their females were extremely intelligent, their males were idiots,

Are you a girl? All your creatures are like that...

No, not really...

Only the Erogian and the Frug, and the Erogian were inspired by the Frug.

And I don't think Third / fourth genders count as girls.

Oh and I dumped the Frug long, long ago.

Hey Watcher, you really need to stop double posting. It's really confusing and annoying and unnecessary. Just consolidate your posts on one please.

Thanks for editing it (I think you did?) Gec. I have thought of a solution to my picture problem, that I should of thought of the moment I started. Just hyperlink to Image Host/Shack...duh...

Actually, after writing that paragraph of above, I might include the Kinshoius to the RG galaxy but write my main articles on spec. One question though, do humans inhabit the RG galaxy? I think they do, didn't the Nauceans meet some?

I know this is becoming an off topic thread (it was meant to be in the end) but is there anything else you would like to know about the Kinshoius/Kinshoian?




One thing, all your creatures hop on their tongues. Mine does not. It has a forked "tongue" (read above!!) which extrude through holes in the side of It's mouth. So if you do not know it's anatomy it would like it walks on two tentacles with bony back "arms/legs". I've also got ome good relationship ideas (families, marriage etc...) if you want to hear.

(messed up quote, Blag said only 2 creatures had clever girls)
YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR OWN CREATIONS *gasp*! Neither do I :P But check up your Insaneiverse, both of your creatures (your first one and the white livac (?)) had females averagely more intelligent than males. Just wanted to point out please do not reply.


Also, I've seen that nobody answered my question. Doesn't matter. If everybody ignores this it just means I've got a place to store my ideas.

Senses
The Kinshoius have the same general senses as humans:Sight, Smell, Taste, Touch and Hearing. But thanks to their underground origins, they have an improved sense of smell, touch and even inferred. Their antenna are covered with sensitive pits which use seek heat sources and creates a simple form of inferred to use when in dark areas. Talking of dark, Kinshoius (or the Kin :D) have a monochromatic, short sighted view of the world. Their eyes are vaguely insectoid  as they seem "placed on" instead of inside of a socket. They have thin membrane because I was to lazy to think of something else. Taste and smell organs are located on the radula. Smell is just a advanced form of taste and so not so good. I haven't thought about hearing. Has anybody got any ideas? They don't have ear holes


OK... let's see if this works...

http://i.imagehost.org/view/0558/august_2010_aguilar (http://i.imagehost.org/view/0558/august_2010_aguilar)

YES!!! I hope you like it, sos it's not coloured. It's a picture of an Usoi, one of my old creatures if anybody can remember.

I'm still going to post this...

Food and Cooking
 I have a headache, continue tomorrow...
 
But now I don't ;D
Right let's begin... Well, as I have mentioned before, the Kin don't really care about texture when it comes to food. They want it to be organized in mathematical spirals with illusional patterns painted on to their slop. They want it to be infused with a thousand tastes of herbs, spices, meat, sea water, shells, moss, blood, earth... Their cooking doesn't include much fire as meat is eaten raw and plant matter is edible raw anyway. Instead, cooking includes three basic methods, usually combined: Liquidation, combination and infusion.

[drawing]

Not to rain on your parade but I made a "Bellyfaced Tonguewalker" before Spore even came out.

[another drawing]

I also made a "Paraglider Tongue" if we are going to get into tongue themed aliens.

See more of my pre-spore aliens in my gallery (http://hydromancerx.deviantart.com/gallery/#Spore).

Not to rain on your parade, but I think it's arrogant and egoistic to post your own creatures in someone else's thread and then post an advertisement of your stuff immediately after it.

Thanks, bye.

I was actually expecting a sarcastic comment so thanks :D So..Is there anything else you want to hear about, more about their planet, culture etc... I have got a good picture of them but the Kin have changed a bit now and I haven't drawn one for quite a while.

Please answer this.

Title: Re: A Tonguetastic Idea...
Post by: Watcher in the Puddle on October 12, 2010, 04:31:50 am
I think I've already mentioned this but it can't of been very detailed.

Architecture
The Kin's city's are difficult to compare against human's. This is because they usually live underground. Instead of using metal working and stone craft, the Kin manipulate the elements to form a wanted shape eg: creating underground caverns which flood daily to create a smooth shape and then unblock a volcanic pothole to channel the water away. But there is some surface constructs. The main entrence of the cave system is a large sphere, half dug into the sloping ground. There are also numerous chimneys, covered in moss, which appear randomly, over a large area of land. These originate from the Kin's smelting factories and steamers (I'll explain that later). The Kin have a huge mining industry which is present in even the most different of tribes. There main source is obsidian and other volcanic minerals. This will give them a high place if they manage to get to space stage.  

Oh! Iv'e totally dumped the Spec fourms and I'm going to create a full topic on the Kin! YAY!!  :D :D

Firs Contact Eh... Well the Kin are only on a tier 4/3 age (middle age Chinese) and there interests aren't conquest and discovery so I'll have to think about how they get to space.

Walking home from school in the burning sun, I was thinking about what I think about members. eg: I think of you as some kind of mystical little manga guy, Gec as a lizard, Blag as a blag(thing) and of course Flisch as a Flish... So, what do you think I am, just a noob.. :P ??

I'm sorry Watcher, but it's pretty rude to bump topics (even when they are your own) just to illicit some feedback when there is hardly anything new to discuss.

You need to start constructive conversations. Post something relevant, new info, updates, and drawings. Bumping to get people to talk about nothing won't work unless you show initiative and keep showing us new stuff. We are not going to inspire you to do anything. You should have it all figured out.
Title: Re: Tonguetastic!(The Kin)
Post by: Watcher in the Puddle on October 26, 2010, 06:43:05 am
Sorry, I was just asking if there was something going on. Like a very popular RP or something.

But I do have an update. I've made up 2 sports though one of them isn't very serious. My first one is a highly complicated ball/table game called "Tackle Ball". It's a mix of twister, scramble, football, rugby and something else. It's so complicated that I haven't made any complex rules for it. But I have basic stuff. The game is played on 29 by 29 grid with a banana shaped ball. To play, you must be quick and strong in mind and body.
There are a total of 53 players in a complete game. That's all I know.

The other game is Tongue Twisters ;D

Well let it die. I just posted to say (to anybody who doesn't go on the of-topic topic) that I my self haven't died. I have been instead in my cave (literally ;D ) plotting a new creature. *a sort of mhmmu smile*

by the way, don't reply to this.
