[RG] The Vykusi (Vote Now!)
« on: June 13, 2008, 04:53:59 pm »
Biology

This is a rough sketch of a Vykusi  I made a while back.

It's from aquatic origins and can use the back arms to good effect while swimming.
The two stalk eyes are actually used to determine if an object is hot or cold.  It does because by seeing the amount of infrared coming off an object, though it can't use them to see what an object is, only the heat.  The front eyes are actually spots made to confuse predators. The real eyes are the two large yellow eyes on its sides. They are positioned to allow a near 360 degree view of its surroundings.
The dots behind the whiskers are ear holes.

Digestive

1.Mouth, works in conjunction with the tongue.
2.Tongue,  brings food into the mouth the same way that a cat drinks water.
3.Stomach,  not very different from a humans.
4.Pancreas, for insulin.
5.Liver, performs the same thousand plus functions a human liver does.
6.Gall bladder, for holding excess gall.
7.Nutrient absorption tube, villi at work.
8.Renal organ, prevents the build up of toxins in the blood. (Kidney equivalent, except it all comes out the same place.)
9.Water reclamation organ,  absorbs water.
10.Anus, solid, liquid and gaseous waste come out here.
Cardio-Respiratory

(the arteries aren't really that thick, it's just a representation)

Skelton

The front two arms have two joints each, while the back two arms have only one joint each.  They can be bet to about perpendicular to its body The central area is a rib cage-skull cross.  The back feet has almost no bone in the talons, and the front two feet have two short toes, but you can't tell from the outside.  There is no bone in the mouth on the front.

Reproduction
See top of next page.

Religion
The Vykusi religion is centered around the worship of nature spirit gods.  Each one represents a region of Vyku.
Om, the ocean goddess and the creator of life, born in a cataclysmic tidal wave.  Inherently benevolent, most people prefer to worship her.
Wi, the volcano god and the destroyer of lives, born in a volcanic eruption.  Inherently malevolent, though he does have followers.
Ro, the god of the plains, dug his way up from the ground.
Ko, the goddess of the marshes, lives at the bottom of a pond.

Communication

It communicates through a series of whistles.  Its "mouth" is only used for eating and it breathes through a hole on the tip of the bump on the mouth, (a nose of sorts since it can also smell with it).  Because of the unique respiratory system the Vykusi employ, they can easily create whistles at varying frequencies with great accuracy. The pitch is changed pitch by pressing and pulling the breathing tube.  It does this with its tongue, colored green in the digestive and basic pictures.

I like how you've got the anatomy all worked out. That's usually one of the first steps for me. :)

I also have the planet worked but my scanner gave out on me. Oh well.

Update:


Planet
The planets name is Vyku.  It is extremely geologically active (the red spots are crustal weak points and volcanoes).  There is a lot of forested areas(dark green) and areas with very few trees(yellow green).  The planet is so close it's ice caps are extremely small.  On Vyku there is so much moisture in the air that deserts are non-existent.  There are also a lot of small islands(the brown dots).  The planet revolves around its sun Xwi every .86 Earth years.  It has two moons, Mai and Ras.

Back from the dead with an update not that I have any fans
Solar System
Not to scale
Xwi The sun of the the solar system, a yellow colored main sequence star.

Moni A small dusty world similar to our Mercury except a slightly thicker atmosphere.

Xoki  Lots of CO2 make this planet hot.  Lots of volcanoes.

Vyku  Home of the Vykusi.  Is geologically active and has no ice caps due to proximity to its sun.
        Mai  A small moon of Vyku
        Ras  Slightly larger

Paku Asteroid Belt  Where two planets collided during the solar systems formation, Pani and Taku.

Ryki  Slightly larger than Jupiter, but is colored like Saturn.
        Rite  Biggest moon of Ryki.
        Ura  Second largest, with ice caps.
        Reto  Volcanic moon that is tidally locked to its planet.
        Lena  Captured asteroid from Paku Asteroid Belt

Syku  Large comet, nothing special until visible in night sky.

Nice stuff, like how you made the planets and out them in there right places.
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Finally some feedback, I really need to work on the reproduction.  I'm trying to think of a unique way of doing it but all the unique ways are taken.

Not everything has to be unique.
Creatures maybe but not everything, yeah your stuff can be orginal but don't go too out there ;3
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

Well, there's something to be said for convention. If it works, it works, you can leave the exotic intricacies of love making to the creatures themselves. :)

What exactly do you mean.  It even says in the NG rules you need a clearly defined method of reproduction.

I'm just saying that you don't have to rack your brain trying to come up with something new and different. Pick something that is logical and that you know will work.

But I don't really do this Spore stuff so I could be wrong. Still, I don't think anyone would care if their means of reproduction was nothing special.

I just don't want it to be like how humans do it, that's all.

Oh, well that's easy enough to overcome. Make it similar to spawning or something, that looks like it'd fit your creature.

Take the following examples of reproduction from animals.
Something!

Like Pat said, don't rack your brains out over this; just find something that sticks.
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

There's lots of water on the planet and your creature is semi-aquatic. Why not?
