Spore: Creation Corner / My new Creature(s) - Burrow & Worrub
« on: March 07, 2006, 10:22:43 pm »
The Burrow and the Worrub

   Two races.  A forced alliance.

   
      The Worrub, a large, fur covered mammal.  Large, strong arms, heavy around the midsection, great muscled arms, sharp, keen eyes.  Long, sharp fangs.  A brain, slightly smarter than a box of rocks (Mind you, this box of rocks isn’t sentient.)




   The Burrow, a small, insect type animal.  Light brown spots often speckle its soft exoskeleton.  Small, insignificant eyes, tiny wiggling legs, two large pincers adorn its head.  It’s small brain, vast and powerful.



   Two animals, completely different, yet, they depend on each other for survival.  Okay, so one of the two isn’t really doing their part willingly.

It all began back in the primordial ooze of Signia 2, a mist covered world, large, leafy plants all about, mud and ooze in swamps everywhere, no oceans, just ooze and swamps.  Signia 2 is the second planet in a large solarsystem.  Twelve planets in total orbit around Dagoka, the sun.  Two other planets being habitable, other than Signia 2, and the others are either desolate rocky worlds, or large gas giants.

   As the mist cleared one day, on a particular patch of ooze and a dark brown grass type of plant, a small insect type creature emerged. (Or the cellular counter part).  And coincidently, only two ooze patches and one leafy plant away, a large bulbous and strong creature crept out slowly (again, or the cellular counter part).

   As time passed, and the Burrow began to search its surroundings, it happened across the Worrub.  It studied it from afar, as it bounded deftly toward a small stone, flipped it neatly to the side and dug beneath it, and shoved something into its mouth, the Burrow had a strange connection right then and there.  Of course, the Worrub knew nothing of this as it chewed thoughtfully on a bit of dirt and pebbles and continued on its merry way.

   Maybe, if not for the Burrow, the Worrub would have become a great creature, the mental part, catching up to its physical side.  But, alas it was not to happen, as the Burrow quickly scampered up through the Worrub’s thick fur and expertly dug itself into the Worrub’s skull.

And thus, the Burrow-Worrub Alliance was born.

The two creature’s relationship is a strange one, Burrow scientists have studied the effects of the ‘enlightened’ Worrub and shown that it actually enjoys it. Having no sense or emotion, the Burrow’s bring great joy and strange new feelings to the Worrub’s, as they are still slightly smarter than a box of un-sentient rocks.

Basically, the Burrow is a parasite, but more than just a "Hey, look at all this gooey stuff in your stomach" parasite, a brain parasite, it can litterally, take over the Worrub's insignificant brain and control it.  When the Worrub has been 'infected', or 'possessed' the Burrow's call it... 'Enlightening the creatures', thus most adult Worrubs are 'enlightened'.

  Immature Worrub’s cannot be ‘enlightened’, so they are off into a nursery, enjoying their days, prancing about the small nursery ecosystem, eating small lizards and rocks.  Two consenting adult Burrow’s go to the nursery to pick out a new Worrub for their newly hatched baby.
 
(to be continued... later)

Comments, anyone?  Also, if anyone would like to illustrate their idea of the creatures, more realistically (or better at all) then please, go ahead, I urge you to, based off the (weak) descriptions, story and my quickly drawn pictures.

Portable Games / New Harvest Moon Games

Heh, well it looks like our favorite farmer is back!

(I put this in portable gaming because the newer games are for the portable systems)

Jack has been in a few past games and everybody loved all of them, except maybe a flop or two (read: Save the Homeland).  But now we will soon be able to enjoy Jack (...) all over again!

Wow that sure is alot of new Harvest Moons, I'm glad they're coming out with alot of them, get Harvest Moon into the spot light.

Okay okay, sorry for the long post, but I will mention another game called:  Rune Factory. The developers (Not Marvelous Interactive) say this will be like Harvest Moon, but you wield a sword, should have online capabilities as well!

PC Games / Hewwo Kitty!
« on: March 24, 2005, 09:44:11 pm »
Haha, this just makes me grin. 

A Hello Kitty MMOG!



I like all these new games that are coming out, soon, if you're in a mood for a certain type of mmorpg or even just a single game, you can search it and find it!

I just hope this game has a very strong community and community options.  I don't see a whole lot of people playing this game if it doesn't have a strong main point.

Your opinions?

Btw, whenever I see Hello Kitty I always have that image of the 'female product' flash through my mind... *shudder*

Coming in April 2005, the movie version of one of the funniest books I have read.  The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy hopefully lives up to my memories (I have the triliogy... Which has 5 books in it... >.>)

Can't wait until April 29th!
