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.

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*

Come on guys, I'm sure you know what it is by now, right? Just look back at all the creatures, and ye shall see....

Alright, sorry for the loooooooong delay, but life has kept me busy, and my priorities are Sagan 4, and the Blargbells. I'm going to get started drawing now.

And NOBODY can figure out what "we whistle while we work" is?! You're kiddin' me!  :o

Not trying to be offensive (seriously, I'm not), but if you just take a peek at all the different creatures so far, with the knowledge that "we whistle while we work" was one of the top three, I think (hope) you will figure it out.  :)

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.

Hi Blarg. ;D
Voted for "Brrr...". Can't wait to see it. :D
Out of curiosity, just how many kinds of creatures will populate the Bell's planets once it's complete? ???
Any estimate? :)

Seems like the Blargbells are gonna be living in the most diverse habitat of all. ;)

About the shotgun things: Do the bells have computers? If so, the TI's could teach them how to build the ships from scratch. :)

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.

Not actually pertaining to the poll in any way, this is still a creature of Blargbellia, and one of the most important to the Blargbells, to boot!



This is a Royal speedwurm, an excellent example of champion stock speedwurm, bred for centuries to be used by the Most Awesome Ones, and those fortunate enough to be liked by them (a commoner's speedwurm will be much less vibrantly colored, and be stockier to help with heavy loads). These wurms are rather intelligent, similar to a dolphin, and very trusting, loyal, and easily trained, similar to a dog. Reared up in this picture, this particular speedwurm is at a height of about 3 1/2 feet.
The Blargbell have used the wurms, especially the speedwurms for almost as long as the race has lived, because of their intelligence and durability in many climates. Capable of climbing trees, rocks and the like, able to burrow into the earth, and reaching speeds at up to 60 miles per hour, this is the Blargbellian version of a biological ATV on steroids.
These wurms live on a diet of mostly grasses and weeds, but will supplement it with small animals if they feel the need for some protein.
As you can see, they have very small grasping claws on their front sides. Unlike most wurms, the speedwurm does not use its claws for fighting or digging, instead using them in a monkey-like way, so that it may grasp and manipulate objects. It also has a modified tail, working in much the same way. The Blargbells use this to their advantage, for lacking a means to do many things because they have no thumbs, ensslaving the mind of another to do your work for you is the next best thing.

This creature reminds me of my Sanddigging Serpentsaur from Sagan. :P Its still cool though. ;)

This odd, sponge-like animal is called the Bombell. It takes on the role of a sponge in one form or another in the many parts of Blargbellia's ocean, but it is a bit... different, to say the least.
The Bombell is attached to the ground by a thick trunk, serving as tentacles or legs to the other species in the Bell family. This trunk is coated with long, thick hairs, serving the same purpose as their land-dwelling counterparts; to feel vibrations. It backs up its vibratory sense with many eyes, circling it on every side. With these it is able to find its prey, which is typically fish-like creatures, small aquatic wurms, and similar things. It will lure these creatures into one of its many mouths by use of a very long, skinny lure (not shown), much like a snapping turtle. After its prey is close enough, it will send out a terrible electric shock, stunning or even killing the poor animel falling into its trap. Then, by sucking water with incredible force through one mouth, and pushing water out through all of the others, it is actually capable of sucking the dying animal into the closest mouth, where the teeth will latch on and suck out its fluids.
The Bombell reproduces much like many bells, by spreading spores around. The only differnence is that the Bombell will spread them almost continually. But if something large touches it, it will explode with massive force, and spores will travel at high velocities all over the immediate area. Just like the Blargbell, the Bombell spore will mature when another spore hits it.
The Bombell can range in size from one foot, to up to at least 10 feet. The largest ever documented was an incredible 24 feet long!

The Treeater is an odd animal by Blargbellian standards, being one of the very few that have live young. As you can see, it is a tripod, like all the other creatures in its relatively scarce family. It is totally blind, getting around by feeling with its nine whiskers, and hearing with its giant rodent-like ears.
It is an herbivore, who takes the niche of an elephant or giraffe, living in areas very much like the two Earth animals, living off of the trees and shrubs in the area. Unlike them, it is not a social animal, being a rather cranky creature who likes its privacy. The only time they get together is to mate, and the females will drive their young away as soon as they are large enough to not need constant protection. They have litters of one to up to a rare five young, who act the same as their parents except for they eat grass instead of leaves because of their small stature. The Treeeater, when fully grown, is about as tall as a giraffe, not including its three mouth-trunks.
