[RG] The Pentekonterus
« on: November 11, 2009, 09:55:56 am »
These creatures live on the forested planet of Kuuruk. They can easily be recongnized as the heaviest creature on that planet. There are other features of their system that you should know.

EDIT: Merged with Kosmosis thread. http://www.kosmosis.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=fauna&action=display&thread=25&page=4

Star: Kaivik
Star Type: Class-M Yellow star in early stages of life.
Planet #1: Kuuruk: You may find it strange, but this is the home planet of the Pentekonterus and surrounding species.
Planet #2: Kiivck: A ball of ice rich in minerals, it could be considered a wasteland, but for the foreign mining station. Nobody knows who placed it there.

Size: 11,347km in diameter
Average Temperature: Mild
Liquid: The liquid water is within the central ocean and the newly formed eastern sea, the southeastern swamps, and several large lakes in the north.
Average Terrain: Forest, with occasional plains, swamps, and one ocean separating the two main continents. This was formed during a recent volcanic disturbance.
Density: It has an average-density atmosphere.
Composition: This atmosphere consists of 15% argon, 35% oxygen, 45% nitrogen, and 5% trace gases..
Geological Conditions: The supercontinent has split into two, seperated by the old ocean and a small sea in the east.It has a liquid iron outer core and a solid nickel inner core due to fusion with a nickel-based protoplanet during formation.


Main Species: There was once a sapient species on this planet, but all that is left are the ruins of tents. Also, the Pentekonterus.
Native Animals: Pentekonterus, several prey species and competing predators.
Imported Animals: None
Native Plants: Swamp trees, deciduous broad-leafed trees, and aquatic flowering plants.
Imported Plants: None


Structures: Ruins of small villages, a monolith left by Zorikanian xenobiology ships, 3 nations worth of cities.
% Urban:  3 (the remaining ruins)
Spaceports: Yes
Imports: Nothing
Exports: Nothing

Other notes: This planet is ripe for colonization.

Notes on the Pentekonterus:
Size: 15' long, 4' tall
Armor and weapons: Clubbed tail, claws, powerful jaws, size, physical strength.
Personality: Feirce towards less intelligent species, but fear those more intelligent than themselves and will act gently to avoid conflict. This is part of their social order, with the alpha male or female being the smartest, not the strongest, individual.
Colors: Red scales with yellow markings all over their backs in no particular pattern.
Special powers: SEE SECOND PAGE

These creatures are purely terrestrial.

SPACE STAGE, YEAH!!!
Other notes: Their main prey lives in the forests, with other prey items inhabiting the swamps. They tend to shy away from the central ocean. They have had contact with scouting droids before, and gained their fear of those more intelligent after unsuccessful attacks.

Also, I know there's no picture. How do you upload from Sporepedia?

You really shouldn't.  Just link it, and someone with a "TAA Member" badge in their signature will draw it for you.

You can't link from your hard drive.

You need to host it on a site like photobucket or imageshack,then link it back here.

Some extra biology info:
Diet: Carnivorous
Reproduction: Method Unknown
Hunt success rate: 67%
Gender Dimorphism: None
Lifespan: 50-70 Earth Years
Other: They seem to dislike wading, and cannot swim, which may be why they avoid the central ocean.

May I make a reccomendation?  Perhaps you could try filling out the creature classification outline made by Darth Grievi a while back.  It's great for helping to flesh out your creature.  As said before me, it looks like your creature has quite a bit of potential.

http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=11004.0

That said, I am dubious about the fact that you are introducing them as still being in the creature phase.  Keep in mind that pretty much all other races in our RP galaxy are well into the space phase, so I'm not sure how you would be able to RP with the Pentekonterus at all.  Just something you may want to think about.

Would you mind telling me what kind of star is Kaivik, exactly? Because I don't think you know too much about stars or nuclear fusion. I can't think of any kind of violet-colored star. Also, you're saying that magma is released through ocean vents after being converted into gas? Magma is rock so hot it's liquefied. That's right, liquid rock. The only way you could turn it into a gas is if it was very near a star or was in some other position of unbelievably hot temperatures. Hydrothermal vents release various minerals mixed with superheated water.

This looks like it has some potential, but please do your science research next time. And don't forget to read the topics that say "Read Before Posting!"

They're stickied and some even have exclamation marks surrounding them.
