If I understand, you are describing a sharklike thing that swims through snow/ice. Because reading your post I thought it would be cool if the "monster" were just a spirit, like the spirit of a shark and the spirit remembered the concept of shark. The spirit could tie itself to ice and snow, and become a shark... So the ice under someones feet could sprout a fin and turn into a shark... That way an ice shark could exist without destroying the ice... the spirit of the shark would translate through the ice until it wanted to jump out, in which case a shark shaped bit of ice would jump out of the snowy ground and attack someone.

I like it, but it's too much like will -o wisps and too much like numerous other heat-draining/eating insubstantial creatures to get more points from me for originality. Go to Comment

I like your description a lot. One question I have...I would think they would like to live near people if that's their favorite food, and hunting strategy (which could be in jungles or cold mountanous regions Go to Comment

I have a detail fetish and this leaves me hanging. How are they trained? What do they eat? What is lifespan, etc... I don't need these answers in particular, but just a little more than this if you want a 5. But it's a nice to the point post. Go to Comment

A nice post. I have many questions :-)

Why do the glands naturally drop off? In a desert, I would want to keep my extra glands. And why don't they need to eat? How do they behave around the Lemeain's? Camels are supposed to be mean animals - are these also? Will they permit Lemeain's to ride them, or only to steal their glands? What do they get out of their partnership with the Lemeain's? Not water or food I imagine? Go to Comment

Thanks, it is a nice addition. I like the idea of a camel-based creature. They are, to me, exotic creatures. Go to Comment

Come on, who doesnt first get aggressive and then later depressed (depressant-style) when drinking. And I've seen quite a lot of college kids rear up and display their white underbellies after imbibing too much as well. Methinks these animals are not so much unlike us. Go to Comment

A nice (um. maybe not the best word) idea. Not likely to be used in many adventures I think, but original. Go to Comment

I assume the host/victim is harmed somewhat while being fed upon? How do these creatures move on their own? Could you explain more what you mean by they are social? Go to Comment

I remember coding and playing Hunt the Wumpus from a book onto my apple IIe when I was a kid. I like the write up you did - a very good (and imaginative) conversion of the old beast. Go to Comment

Can they cast parts of themself and lose parts? Can they absorb other parts? How do they behave? What intelligence level do they have? I think you need to add more details and description to this. It's a really cool start of an idea, but I don't think there's enough for a full post.

(p.s. I appreciate that you cite your inspiration. I'm new here so I don't know the etiquette for that, but I think it's important.) Go to Comment

This is a solid 4+ post to me. It gives a much more complete description of a creature than most posts. I don't understand why it lives in crypts, especially if it loves attaining both knowledge and wealth. Maybe it can somehow draw on the memories of a dead person and learn through that? Go to Comment

I like it. I imagine these buggers might beeline for large cities where there's tons of good eating! Better have good guards at night or your magic shop might depreciate while you sleep. Oh you set an alarm spell and magical traps? Yeah, I'm sure it will be fine ;-p Go to Comment

I like the details, like the different types of ants, their roles and their physical differences.

Mmmmm. ant eggs! my favorite! Go to Comment

In the Temple Square of The City, where the nine Greater Gods have their houses of worship, a sudden flash of light blinds (perhaps permanently) all those who are nearby. When the light has faded, a tiny, naked baby is lying in the doorway of each Temple. The Gods, it seems, have come into the world - but why?
