I was thinking that if the old races of the RP section could have their own thread, it'd be cool to have one for the Alliance of Honor, too.  So all you old AoH members, let's see your creatures.

Vexarions - Arachoid

Tal'po - Brandonazz

Has'ri - Haseri

Factimilitus - Inkling

Gockets - Inkling

Spore: Creation Corner / [NG] The Cormi
« on: May 13, 2008, 06:52:54 pm »
I'm a bit late to the NG game, but better late than never.  I present to you:

The Cormi



Cormis are small, highly social creatures, averaging about two feet in height measured from the top of their tail.  They are omnivores, but eat mostly meat.  They have four legs and four arms, the lower pair ending in hands and the upper pair ending in a set of claws.  Their tails can fire a neurotoxin (or something) they use to help take down prey much larger than themselves.  They come in a wide variety of colors, as can be seen in the three Cormis shown.  The average lifespan of a Cormi is the equivalent to 50 years on earth, with the oldest Cormi on record being 78.



And look, zero replies and I already have fanart!  This must be the most popular creature ever!

Thanks, Tomasgaquino


More info is coming, of course.

Movies / Ben Stein in Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed
« on: April 14, 2008, 09:42:13 pm »
http://www.expelledthemovie.com

This is a new documentary from Ben Stein (yes, that Ben Stein) about evolution and intelligent design.  I admit that I know very little about this movie,  I only heard what it was about yesterday.  So the rest of you can look into it along with me.

By the way, I see this thread turning into a mess very quickly, but maybe we can get some good discussion out of it before then.

Music / Bluegrass, anyone?
« on: February 16, 2008, 09:51:44 am »
Self explanatory, really.  I was just wondering if anyone else on the site liked bluegrass music.  Extra points if you add links to the songs on youtube or something.

I came across this game today and it's really quite fun.

http://www.addictinggames.com/seed.html

It doesn't seem like much to start with, but just give it time, and you can grow some crazy stuff.  Here are two "DNA" codes that I've come up with so far.

This is from an attempt to make a tree.  I ended up with a bush:
25.0, 0x464c3a, 5, 13, 28.7, 0.3, 2.4, 1.0, 56.5, 45.2, 0.9, 4, 0.3, 0.0, 0.1, 0.1, 1.0, -0.1, -0.2, -0.1, 0xdfcda8, 0x4c8c2a, 10.6, 13.8, 9, 12, 0.0, 1.0

This is when that bush was cross-bred with some funky pink and neon blue thing Met grew:
51.7, 0xaac68f, 5, 12, 26.8, 0.4, 2.2, 1.1, 65.3, 57.1, 0.8, 4, 0.1, 0.0, 0.0, 0.1, 2.0, 0.1, 0.3, 0.8, 0x86975e, 0xa56d94, 12.4, 17.6, 8, 10, 0.3, 0.0

EDIT:  here's a gallery of plants posted so far:

Everything Else / Inkling - 32 Giant Cave Bugs and Mice - 0 / Sam 0 Ants 2
« on: September 26, 2007, 06:49:00 pm »
A Warning: This thread isn't for anyone who has a fear of spiders or bugs in general.


So, I was brushing mah teeth the other night at about 2 in the morning.  I should probably explain that in my dorm the sink is separate from the rest of the bathroom, which is in another room.  As I brush my teeth, I turn around, and what do I see?



Oh, nothing.  Just a Giant cave spider.  Naturally, my first reaction is to take a picture of it.



My second reaction is to put a quarter next to it for scale.

Now I had to decide what to do with it.  There's no way I'm letting a bug that big stay alive in my room.  My usual methods for bug killing are:
1. Grab it with a tissue or paper towel, squish it, and either flush it or toss it in the garbage, or
2. Stomp or smash with a shoe.
Neither of these methods will work in this case.  I couldn't get a clean kill with the shoe, as the spider is protected by the frame of the door.  Can't go for the grab and squish method, as I'm not putting my hand anywhere near that thing.  So seeing as this all happened sometime just after 2 in the morning, I did the sensible thing.  I grabbed my umbrella and stabbed the little beast with the metal tip.


The vanquished foe.

This may not seem like enough of a subject for it's own topic, but I've had other giant cave bugs running around in my room, and I expect to do battle again.

Books / The worst book you've ever read
« on: September 14, 2007, 03:45:46 pm »
A fairly self-explanatory thread.  Tell us the worst book you've ever had the misfortune to read, and what made it so bad.

I didn't actually read this book, it was a book on tape CD.  I was helping take my aunt and younger cousins back to the airport, and they insisted on listening to these books in a series about a mouse called Geronimo Stilton.  Granted, it was supposed to be a silly little chapter book for young readers, but it was the most condescending, painful tripe I've ever heard.  Every sentence made at least two bad cheese-based puns, the main character was pitiful, cowardly, and had absolutely no redeeming value, and it was just poorly written in general.  I gave myself a headache on the ride to the airport by cranking my mp3 player up as loud as possible in a vain attempt to drown it out.

But enough about that, what's your worst book?

Spore: General / What happened to Sporewiki?
« on: January 08, 2007, 08:55:17 pm »
I just noticed today that Sporewiki.com seems to have disappeared.  I and several other people on this forum used the site, so I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to it. 

And if this has already been discussed in another thread, I didn't see it.

Spore: Creation Corner / The Gockets and other creatures
« on: December 06, 2006, 11:36:41 am »
This isn't my first or main idea for an intelligent creature, but I'm going to start with it anyways. But first, an explanation about my creatures. All of my drawings suck, or at least they aren't as good as I want them to be. But I can sculpt a little better than I can draw, so...

This is a Gocket


The Gockets are a generally peaceful and easy going race of skinny, monopod amphibians. Their home planet is dominated by marshes, swamps and bogs. The three spikes attached to the bottom of their heads are sensory organs that use sonar to help a Gocket find its way through the murky waters of their planet.

Like I said, these aren't my main creatures, but if you want, I could go into a little more detail.
