Conchyliated Rat, Rattus Ostrea The Conchyliated Rat, or Clam-head Rat, stands 10 cm at the shoulder. Its body is a meter long, with a tail three times that. Unlike their black, furry bodies, Their heads are covered with something akin to mollusk-like shells, excepting the eyes, and terminating in a cruelly hooked beak. This shell, often barbarically and incorrectly referred to as the rat's skull, can be cracked open to reveal lustrous, iridescent nacre. In far off lands, the rats have begun to be de-beaked, and farmed to feed the ever growing hunger for clam-headed jewelery.

Thrivval (THRIV-val): Uncannily resembling a cross between a duck and a pinecone, the Thrivval lairs in misty swamps and wetlands. Their eggtooth never atrophies, eventually devoloping into a diminutive horn. The Thrivval's feathers have adapted into the hard, bony ridges that protect it from predators. Thrivvals burrow in the mudbanks near streams, using their shovel-like wings. They then stick their highly sensitive eggtooth out of the mud, and should any animal pass within a few feet, the Thrivval bursts out, rushing in to bite it. This often leads them to bite the feet of travellers with their sharp beaks, earning them the nickname "Toe eaters," among colonists. Because of their abundance in and around humans, many Thrivval-related proucts have been devoloped. Thrivval-plate boots are now high fashion, and their wings make perfect gardening tools. The Thrivval has also become a popular subject in children's stories, often portraying the "grumpy old man" character.

I like the basic idea
Free free to delete these after you make the correction:

You need to mention on how they navigate or move on the sea. Do they sail their icebergs or do they kayak?

growing crops on icebergs? Women can be crafters.

medals? Why not call them tatoos or make them Flesh Runes or something.

Do they have magic? They might move their icefloats via magic. Go to Comment

You must remember, at the time of your reading this it's unfinished, I'll go into the specialized crops they grow and their craft sooner then later. (I'm simultaneously working on gods, and other races for the campaign)

Thank you for your input however Go to Comment

Yes, maybe, boiled, but I haven't quite decided; yes, and finally, can't you pass off ANY vegetable as health food? Go to Comment

I really like this post, it wonderfully detailed and everything. I suppose the only thing I have to say is that the creation part bugs me a little, of course its probably something tied into an earlier post that I missed, lol. Anyways great post. Go to Comment

Well my dear brother, I grudgingly complement you on your post. It's extremely inventive. I'm curious about these cabbage things. How are Uruspag's spread. how does the plant get the necessary nutrients it needs to grow. Do they taste salty? Is there different varieties of Uruspag? How is the vegetable prepared and consumed? Do you still owe me a game of magic? (yes you do). And finally could I pass an Uruspag off as health food? Go to Comment

I like this to a point. I to am having trouble finding out what it looks like. Also the Tunneling Surrush, why is is called that if it is used for hauling wagons and searching for water? I was expecting an underground version that has an affinity for the earth and an ability to excavate quickly.

Over all it is a decent post, but it needs work to bring it above my 3.0 mark. I would have given it a 2.5 but it seems you have put forth some effort into it which makes it seem real to a point. Go to Comment

Thank you for your comments Zylithian, personally I can't think of any way to describe it, and the Image you conjoured up is very similar to my own. I will probably revisit the description later or photoshop something for clarification. Go to Comment

The Tunneling Sirrush digs for water, hence the name. Go to Comment

Sometimes when one can picture something well in your mind one doesn't make a clear description. Based on your descriptions and writing style, I believe this is a good post, but I have a ton of trouble understanding what this creature looks like. I think it has four legs, because the third variant has uneven leg lengths, but that's the first time that became clear. They have smooth skin, but it is scaley - I guess snakes are smooth - is this what you meant? I don't understand what you mean by elongated scales from the shoulder blades - are they sticking out or lying on the skin? I'm picturing something like a short reptilian horse with a long (unproportional) neck and a dog's head, with smooth scales and a bumpy tail.

I like how you talk about different breeds - I think that's really good.
It would be interesting to know more about the temperment.

I think this post could be much better with a very small change in how you describe it... maybe I'm dense, but I don't understand. If you could explain better, I'd recomment/revote. Go to Comment
