This is a perfect flavor piece. Something I'd use in a highly fantastic setting (or possibly an alien planet). I might make them a little less watermelon-ey in description, but overall I love this sub. Definitely got a laugh from me, thanks! Go to Comment
Ah, you´ve been reading some Mieville lately, I gather? Still, you´ve given the race a few quite respectable twists of your own, which really boosts this way beyond any form of plagiarism. Very well done! Go to Comment
Actually, I like these guys better than Mieville´s rather dull critters, so well done. I´m a huge Mieville fan, but his creature ideas are rather too unimaginative for my tastes. Good job! Go to Comment
I've never read Mieville, actually. People keep telling me to. But I googled the book (I think) you're referring to. Anopheles is just a major genus of mosquitoes. China and I both need to be more creative with our names, I think.
This dude came from a conversation about genotyping a population by capturing mosquitoes. Cloning, homunculi. . . same potato. Go to Comment
Rereading this, my first impression is that it all sounds very 2nd ed AD&D. There's a few good ideas, but the metal-bird people are so. . . ordinary as far as metal bird-people go. Maybe I can spice them up some more. Go to Comment
The Earthblood Warrens are a series of caverns in which dwell men who live around the Earthblood Vein, a river of magma. They use the magma from the Earthblood Vein to warm and light their homes and cook their food. The Warrens are several miles long, stretching along the banks of the Earthblood Vein, and since nobody wants to walk that far, the Earthbloodmen capture large, magma-swimming serpents, which they train and ride.
