Uchako - New Creature (Still working out kinks.
« on: March 08, 2006, 05:56:52 pm »
I know that there's little chance of spore having support for a creature like this, but I came up with it just for fun.

Name: Uchako

Type: Coldblooded Tentacled Amphibious Cephalopod

Lifestyle: Social Parasite

Habitat: Icy Cold Oceans / Islands

Size: 1.5 feet

Weight: 20 lbs

Diet: Vicariously Depending on Host Creature.

Armor: Skin is soft, but is able to blend in with the environment.

Defenses: Able to hijack the nerves of creatures, essentially controlling them.

Tools: Able to use tentacles to carry light objects.

Method of Eating: Sucking fluids from the creature it currently is controlling, much like a

lamprey.

Lifespan: 30 years in pre-modern era. Indefinate afterwards.

Reproductive Rate: Is able to asexually reproduce beginning at 5 years.

Gestation: 1 month.

Offspring incubation: 2 months after clutch is laid.

Number of Offspring: Up to 1000 in a clutch, depending on evironment.

Offspring Survival Rate (before age of maturity): 80% Eggs are laid around the same time

time host creature gives birth, ensuring that the newly hatched young have a creature to
attach to.



MsPaint Sketch of Uchako controlling a propiscian, one of the more common local sealife.

Any details I should fix or add? I'll get to the culture/geography/solarsystem as I come up with it.

Please be easy on me, this is the first time I've done something like this.


Yeah, there's words there.

I belive that parasites are under consideratioon. It would probably be included under mouthparts, but would a parasite be very fun to play?
Nice description...
i am sort of confused by the pic.

Well, I hastily scrawled that pic together. That large lump with the tentacles is the uchako, the picture is essentially one hijacking the nervous system of a propiscean, a whale-like filter feeding creature that move by rotating its tailfin. I'll try to get a better picture done. Nothing about my creature is really set in stone, especially the name. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd like to hear them. And if onything elso confuses, just speak up.

Well, here's a better picture. Oh, and those are compound eyes, all 4 parts can see in a different way, Normal Vision, Night Vision, Infrared, and Heat Sensory, so that have some sort of chance, even when it's not attached to a host.

There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

To be honest, I don't really have a set number of tentacles in the design specs, but I'd say around 8, but I'm not sure yet. And all things considered, most rabbits I've seen are smaller than 1 feet 6 inches.

Also, I've never actually played Halo, so I don't know what a "flood" looks like.

I'm thinking of changing the eyes and stuff eventually. Think of this as the "alpha" version.
