(NC)Kuyrudam-my creature
« on: July 08, 2009, 07:09:45 am »
now the picture doesn't look to good because I dont have my scanner so bare with me please.

Kuyrudam

The Kuyurudam are a very peculiar species being that they are one of few species that can live in space without dying. This is because of the compressed inner structure that allows them to do so. Mostly living on comets and meteors the species eats the meteors because of well what else are you going to eat. Their preferred meals are comets because the comet has the very basic chemicals for life. Because it would be hard to find a mate in space the Kuyrudam use fragmentation as a form of reproduction. The process happens quite frequently and I will have diagrams showing how this process works.

I will have more info on the species later.

Edit: can anyone join the NC just wondering.

So they eat comets and asteroids, despite the fact that's what they're basicly holding onto? They don't realize 'oh, crap, if I eat this thing from under my feet, I'll go floating off into space...' ?

Maybe they should live mostly on asteroid fields and belts around planets in colonies.

It's just that asteroids and comets are very finite, and I doubt they'd exist long enough to become sentient.

I doubt that they would become sentient.

On another hand, It doesnt seem to imply that its sentient.

Give gec a prize. 8) though I dont have much time right now to explain everything I will get to these points. such as how they became sentient.

And? The fact remains that asteroids are finite, they would have long since run out of any place to live, if they live entirely in space.

By that argument, Earth is finite, how are we still here?  Conservation of matter my friend.  In layman's terms, "What goes in, must come out".

On Earth, we don't eat the friggin earth. We eat plants, which grow because of the sun.

Where does the matter come from genious?  There is finite matter on the Earth just as there is on the comets.  I doubt they are the only species there.  Also, anything extruded and any Kuyrudam that dies returns to the comet.  Nor do I think that they eat everything, probably only certain compounds.

And?? The fact stands. They literally eat the ground out from under themselves, while we eat plants. Which, you know, grow because of the sun. Some eat animals which, you know, eat the plants, which grew from the sun. I don't see humans eating rocks.

And Kuyrudam poop is just mud, which goes back onto the asteroid.

So by that logic, these creatures perhaps have a diet rich in iron and metal.

They still have an incredibly finite amount of stuff they can eat. They would've died off long ago, for lack of food.

MATTER!  You are ignoreing the main argument here.  Plants are not made out of sunlight.  They are built from nutrients drawn from the soil.  Carbon!  We may not eat rocks, but we eat Carbon from the Earth, only in the form of delicious bell peppers.

What I'm saying is, yes, while we do not devour our whole planet, we do, in effect, eat certain minerals and compounds from it.

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. You may wish to review your post.

How do you know?  Perhaps they live in an increadibly vast asteroid belt with enough resources to sustain them for billions of years?  Don't be so quick to dismiss everything.  Half the races on this forum have flaws to them that don't make sense.  Suspension of belief is sorta a key part to making Science Fiction material.

I am not ignoring the main argument, you are. Asteroids and comets are finite sources of material, and I seriously doubt that there's some bacteria that magically converts the 'mud' of this creature back into iron or whatever it is that they eat. If they evolved, even less chance of reaching sentience, for the mere fact that they would've have enough of a food supply.

"Mostly living on comets and meteors the species eats the meteors because of well what else are you going to eat."

This sentence indicates that they obviously do not eat any sort of flora or fauna that grows on the asteroid. The fact stands that they have an extremely finite food supply that would very quickly disappear, just like fossil fuels, because it is non-renewable.

I do have an imagination, but this creature goes incredibly far down into the abyss of absurdity. Unless the asteroids and comets have an actual ecosystem, I do not see this creature actually functioning at all.

That I will not argue with.  Without an ecosystem, there would have been no reason for this race to evolve, but we don't have all the information yet, so give it time.

I think you could have an entire ecosystem on an asteroid belt. Maybe there can be crystal-like plant life growing on asteroids that don't need water but just the soil and ample sunlight.

But he still just says they eat the asteroids and comets themselves, which is my problem with them.

Well Raz does make very good points about my species I do have explanations but just wait. I have work to do in real world so patients please.

Edit: ok now that im done with work for now I can explain. yes the species only eat the meteors and comets. This is because other species do exsitis on the very large belt (more on the belt later) they do have predators in the belt. these guys are kinda at the bottom of the food chain (for now) and are I guess the plant of there area and as I said more info on the belt will come later. now the reason why they dont exaust food is because just like on earth the species decompose into the earth. The animals on the belt do somthing similar but istead form into solid rock after dieing because of lack of water.

Ok Raz does this pass your approval. if not try to give a sugestion instead of shooting it down.

ANDROME
here is a system diagram that show how the belt goes from hot to cold. The Kuyrudam live in the green area. now as you can see this asteroid belt is quite thick. this makes the belt act as a planet almost on its own it just lacs water. The planet that is behind the belt is called scorma and is a dwarf planet. the planet itself is actually smaller than the belt.

 scorma does minimal affect to the belt because of its strange orbit with the sun ,Volatin.

In any case, based on their diet, they'd likely be very tough.

Biology

stats
skin: smooth but incredibly tough, skeletal outside.
mouths: one mouth on the outside with three razor sharp and incredibly strong, another just behind it in the throat.
Brain: the whole body is connected with a nervous system making the whole body a brain.
blood: red
arms/legs: 5ft long ending with three claws.
sight: hypersonic pitch sonar. the 2 membranes located above the mouth. top one sends signal, bottom one receives signal.
size: ten feet tall from leg to tip of body.
life span: 25 years
Reproduction: fragmentation can reproduce 10 times a year.
now I wanted to go into greater detail about the legs and reproduction.

this is a diagram of the process of there fragmentation.
1. species leg still connected to Kuyrudam.
2. leg ready to split from leg. acidic material eating through the now dead skin. 
3. split is done.
4. leg connected to a rock floating through the asteroid Field.
5. hard shell has formed to which will become another Kuyrudam.

now that I have shown you this process you must be wondering "that doesn't make any sense because now it cant move well through the asteroid Field." well the species use rapid mitosis to quickly reform a leg. the species is mostly bacterial so rapid mitosis becomes possible. reforming a leg in a matter of minutes.

Now wait a second here *looks around with confusion* Raz is no longer complaining about my species. Its a miracle.

well any way on to....
Structure

this is a kuyrudam village. not very large looking. it can contain up to 1200 of them. now there are only two sides of this structure to prevent to much complication. the top part is were marketing takes place. and the bottom is where living takes place. The whole town is covered by an electricaly plasma force field produced by the gold ring the floor base. the force field creates a barrier that keeps the meteors from destroying the city and the Kuyrudam from falling out. Though whenever they hit the force field it gives them a small shock so most stay away.

this is where they. in big yellow goop. although this seem very icky to most it actualy relaxes them very much and is the only substance that can alow the species to sleep. this goop is collected from a animal that was ones there predator but now just like a farm animal.  

post your quistions please so I can make a more acurate discription of the race.

First of all, their cities have no gravity, right? They aren't nearly big enough to have a gravitational field. Secondly, can you please explain how the electrical field doesn't affect organic material in proper scientific terms? And I don't think it would be a wise idea to make living things unaffected, because a Kuyrudam could fall out of the force field easily.

thanks guys for catching thoughs details. changed to what it should have been.
First of all, their cities have no gravity, right? They aren't nearly big enough to have a gravitational field.
they live in zero G all there life so the city isn't suppose to make a gravitational pull.
