Blarg's Creature Creating Bonanza!
« on: September 27, 2007, 04:07:50 pm »
Yes, it's another spore game... to the extreme!

I'll have a looooong list of options to choose from, and you guys will have to vote for it, just like normal. Or is it?

Instead of following one creature's movement through the years, I will be having you all vote for options, and every new update will be a new creature! All these creatures will be populating the planet of my humble little creations, the Blargbells.

So let's get started!


LIST OF CREATURES SO FAR



This is a mudwurm. This jolly carnivore lives in the various deep, pitch black caves that make up a good deal of the underground of the Blargbell's home planet. They are actually about as intelligent as a lion, and travel about in groups digging for the giant grubs which make up a great deal of their diet. When they find some prey, their hunting method is for half of the group to surround it in a circle, a fourth of the group around that circle, so that if the prey makes a bolt for it it can;'t escape, and a fourth of the group actually attacking their meal. Their preferred method of killing is to bash the unfortunate animal across the face with its blunt claws until it dies. Like most carnivores, as young, they are quite playful and play-fight with each other constantly. Male mudworms are about 9 feet long from tip to tip, while females are about 7 feet.



This is the Aquawurm. It is one of the many predators of Eyemz Lake, becuase of the bounty of Redherrings, the native, swarming fish. The Aquawurm, like many animals on the planet, can burrow into the ground. They utilize this ability by digging into the mud on the side of the lake, making underwater burrows to lay their frog-like eggs.



This is a freezewurm. These odd, potato-ish creatures are some of the laziest things on Blargbellia. They sleep for ten months, while the Blargbellian year is only 5 months long. They are covered in lumpy, fatty flabs and while they sleep, each of these lumps slowly gets depleted of its fat, until it is merely a shrivel. When they finally wake up, they use all of their time eating, for they reproduce asexually, laying eggs all over the place while they waddle around. Their eating method is similar to many of the Bell's feeding tactic, just stabbing the prey and sucking up its insides. The one shown is asleep, with only its mouth part above ground so that it can breathe.



This is a Batbell. They are VERY distantly related to the Blargbell, and started into life as a failed scientific experiment done by the scientists who created the Blargbells. They live in The Hole, which is where the Blargbells originally lived.
The Batbell is different because obviously, it can fly. It also has a mouth, although it still sucks the blood from its prey with its largest fangs, just like a Blargbell (the other teeth are to help hold onto its prey while it flies). ANother difference is instead of exploding, they lay amphibian-like eggs into pools of water, which start off as a sort of "water fungi" but then eventually grow into a young Batbell, who swims, and after about three weeks, will simply flap out of the water and start the process over again.



A Burnbell, yet another member of the wacky and wild Bell family. This one is a "mole" of sorts, and is yet another prototype to the Blargbell of today. This one is completely herbivorous, digging under the roots of plants and sucking the fluids from there. It is about as tall as a ball cap, and its powerful digging tentacles are MUCH more strong than those of a Blargbell. An interesting thing to note is that its reprductive method is to go into the denseset forest it can find, then trigger itself to spontaneously combust, burning part of the forest down. After it does this, its spores will start growing on the charred remains of the logs, and will eventually grow into another Burnbell.



This is the Woodchombell. They are named that, because obviously, they eat wood. This member of the Bell family is a pretty close relative of the Blargbell, it has many of the same habits, such as:
1. Tentacles with hairs on them.
2. Reproduction via spreading spores through explosions.
3. Ability to burrow into the ground (the Blargbell does it better, though)
The Woodchompbell is different, however, because it actually walks, and lacks the ability to stick to surfaces. This is a bit annoying for them (if they were intelligent enough to realize it was annoying, anyway), as their method of eating wood is to "hug" the tree, slowly chomping off large chunks of wood, which it stores in its mouth/stomach, simultaneously melting it with stomach acids and sucking up the melted wood.



This is a grrdnhss. To Earthlings, that would be "garden hose". Well, that's the closest English translation there is, anyway.
The "garden hose" is an odd creature. Completely mindless, they only have a basic nervous system. Their closest earth counterpart would be a sea cucumber, or a sponge.
Their entire body is a stomach, a liver, AND a lung. The end you see in the water is the "mouth," whose entire purpose is to suck harder than a Hoover. (get it? Hoover? The vacuum> Nevermind.)
Anywho, the mouth will suck in water, be it salt, fresh, or polluted. As soon as it is sucked in, it goes through a painfully long process (depending on the size and age of the creature), in which every last plankton, chemical, mineral, and even oxygen is caught and absorbed by tiny hairs totally filling the animal's inside. After quite a long time, it will be spat out again at the end, as completely pure water (albiet, possibly a bit tasteless). This water has no minerals, no debris, no NOTHING. (The way that the "garden hose" completely purifies the water is a thing that is actually NOT studied by scientists. Because, to be honest, do you think anyone really cares?) The grrdnnhs actually digs using the same water it spits up, just moving in whichever way the water carves out first, until it reaches land. This creature is always found by water, and every once in awhile will spit big globs of "excrement" back into the water. This mineral-rich "poo" is attacked by bottom feeders and plants alike, both desperate for the nourishment it has inside of it.
Some interesting facts about this creature are:
1. Very poisonous skin, much like the poison dart frog on Earth. Even the things that CAN eat it, won't, because the skin is (ironically), just like rubber. Only the most desperate of creatures will try to dig one of these up for a snack.
2. Many Blargbells will use this creature to get to pure water, in case pollution has made the water source undrinkable. THey just need to dig one up, stick it in water, and then wait for the pure water to come out.

PS- All thanks to my brother, who actually thought of this creature months and months ago.

At least you got 12 or so votes. That means that people were interested...slightly.

That's the idea. You don't know until after I've made the creature! You could try to figure it out, by tracing a pattern in the creatures, but that may be a bit hard...

And all the creatures are on the same planet as my Blargbells, justa letcha know.

EDIT- I guess I'll update again. Oh, and thanks for all the constructive comments! *hint hint*

Agreed. Sounds like either a big fat flying thingy, or something REEEEAAALLY big. Two options made of win.

Actually, ALL of those are wrong! Or are they? You won't know until I update!

Be back in a bit! Or.. tomorrow.

Or the next day.

Yeah.
