Xenos' Inhabitants
« on: January 12, 2007, 05:50:56 pm »
Hello. I am Ichthyostega. I've been a lurker for the past week in the Gaming Steve Forum, but as of now I'll be a poster. I am a fan of Spore. I wish it was out.

If you've seen the "Squidman" at Sporewiki, I am the creator. I wanted to make something very different.


And here it is! It's called a Xexphe (formerly called the three-eyed hexapod). They are human-sized sapient invertebrates. They have six locomotive limbs with thick muscle in them.  On their hand, there are three tentacle-like fingers with bulbous tips. Their claws are designed for killing prey. The hole on their claw is designed for hearing. The top claws are designed to grab fruit and small animals from trees. To vocalize, they have a hole on their forehead, air comes in and exales through three holes next near the mouth. The Xexphe's ancestors used vocalizations as a mating call. They sound like growls and croaks. Their ability to speak is not as great as humans.  Xephes are omnivores, just like humans. They have a radial mouth with rows of teeth and a tongue with radula. They breathe with two nostrils next to their third eye that were once gill holes when it's line was in the water. They work like book lungs in arachnids. They build pyramid-like buildings so they can be resistant to earthquakes.

Remind me of the "Megasquid" from the Discovery Channel show "Future is Wild". It's still cool though :D

Thanks!  ;D

The "very thick muscle" in their legs was inspired by the megasquid's strong legs. The muscle is so strong it'd be tough to chew. 

I'll give you a picture of a land vertebrate on the planet the three-eyed hexapod lives in (which is Xenos)



This is a tree hecko. It very much resembles an Earth gecko, with the exception of six limbs and a pair of ocelli, a reminant of another pair of eyes, the fish-type creatures on the Xenos have two pairs of eyes.

With more than one creature you should rename your thread "Ichthyostega's Creatures".

I might do requests. But I need enough information on what the creature looks like before I draw it.

Because of the name "Xenos"... A Greek word for strange.

I'll give you the scientific name of the three-eyed hexaopod: "Triophthalmus hexapodus".

This is a probe made by the Xexphes. It is one of the 5 probes sent to Sagan 4.

It was cancelled.

Got it.

Changed.

I shall pay for violating the intergalactic laws which protects the planet. The probes could contain foreign bacteria that could infect the the two remaining micro-organisms. And they could even infect the higher organisms. Is that the case?

Well you could if you had just asked :P However in return you should have to do a guest creature for Sagan 4 if you do want to have that.

As for foreign bacteria you would need to get it BS approved in the sagan science thread.

After being kind of lazy, I now finished the satilite that was sent to Sagan 4.



It is equipped with artificial intelligence (it looks at anything curious to it). It can zoom in far enough to view the organsms. To get it's energy, the Xexphean satilite has a single solar panel on a roatatable segment. The projection at the rear of the satilite is an antenna that sends transmissions to Xenos and recieve them.

Three new organisms.


Limb Jaw

Scientific name: Gnathopus gnathocaris
Size: 8 inches long
Diet: Small fish-like animals and small invertebrates.

Limb jaws live in reefs, where their food is abundant. Five pairs of limbs evolved into swimming "fins", like the prehistoric Anomalocaris that lived on Earth. The limb jaw family evolved something unique from other arthropod-type animals on Xenos. Their front pair of limbs fused into a jaw to resemble that of a gnathostome (jawed vertebrate). This helps them hold onto prey better.


Spore Puff

Scientific name: Sporocephalus spp.
Size: 1 foot tall

Spore puffs are fungus-type organisms. They are decomposers. Their method of reproduction is having a sac at the higest point that pops to release spores.


Hex Worm

Scientific name: Hexapodovermis rhodoura
Size: 1 foot and 5 inches
Diet: Omnivore

This is the ancestor of the Xexphe. It is still living. It is called a Hex Worm. Hex worms walk on six-muscular limbs. They have a tridigital manipulator, and a hunting arm tipped with two claws. The hole on one claw acts as an ear. Hex worms raise their blood-colored webbed tail (which will become a chitinous grasper) as a warning that it will attack. If the warning is ignored, the hex worms claw their attackers. But this is only effective to small predators. It is vulnerable to large predators. Their mouth is radial with many rows of teeth, like the Xexphe, and have a tounge with horny teeth called a radula.

You noticed that I've been changing the form of the xexphe (tentacle-like fingers instead of claws for better manipulation). Now I want to make another change, and this would be the last one.

If you want, you can post what the new form would look like. It is still an invertebrate.

My idea would be a 3-feet tall animal that walks on six tentacle-like limbs, and has two three-digited arms. It is humanoid in form, and is skinny. Below the two arms are limbs with chitinous hooks that claw their prey. On ther head, they have three vertebrate-like eyes and a radial mouth with many rows of teeth. In their mouth, they have a docoglossan radula. They have a breathing hole on each shoulder that work like book lungs in arachnids. They were once gill holes. They make only croaking and growling noises out of the holes.

If you want, you can even post an illustration of your idea.

Then I'll choose the best idea, and make an illustration of it.

The purpose of this is to make the xexphe look less cartoony.
