The Sluuge
« on: May 11, 2006, 10:31:07 am »
The Sluuge(rhymes with huge) are massive gastropod molluscs. They are the size of an elephant, and have slimey purple-blue skin with bright orange markings running down their backs. A pair of eyestalks are mounted on their heads, above a gigantic circular mouth filled with sharp teeth(like that of a lamprey eel). By nature, the Sluuge are ravenous carnivores. Because of how poor their senses of sight, smell, and hearing are, and  how slowly they move, they are forced to also eat plant life to supplement their diets. They are very patient, and will often hide beneath leaves until prey is close enough for them to devour.

They are a bit of a mystery -- no one can figure out how they became the dominant species of their home planet. It has been suggested that the only other carnivore on the planet was the size of a rabbit, and so they had no competition. In any case, they managed to survive for milennia and developed a powerful space-faring civilization that spans several solar systems.

Sluuge are terribly arrogant, believing themselves to be perfect -- all other creatures are considered animals. On top of this, they are xenophobic and paranoid. They believe they must destroy(or enslave, if their quarry looks tasty) any aliens they encounter during their explorations in order to prevent them from attacking the Sluuge homeworld.

They sound kind of like the Quarfax as far as attitude toward other species goes. Should start an alliance: Extremely hostile slug freaks united.
There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

First, thanks for the compliments :)

That sounds familiar... And I used to to addicted to Strongbad E-mail, so that's probably where I got the idea from.  :P

I'm not sure what the Quarfax are ??? But if they are anything like the Sluuge, they would probably try to enslave or eat their allies :D But who knows, maybe they view other slug-like races as almost-equals ;)

The Quarfax are one of my own creations. Crustacean/mollusc sort of hybrids with primarily slug and lobster-like features. They'll eat pretty much anything they can fit into their mouths and show extreme predjudice toward anything with a backbone, and share the same kind of paranoia. I''m not quite sure how they'd react to another mollusc type species, it'd probably be a somewhat precarious alliance.
