Help update the bestiary!
« on: March 23, 2009, 02:11:19 PM »
http://www.armageddon.org/general/beasts.html

Have you encountered an animal that doesn't appear on that list?  Would you like to write a blurb for it in the style of that page?

I need blurbs written for the following beasts:
Ankheg - Ampere - done
Aurochs - Fathi - done
Baltha - done
Bamuk - Eloran - done
Cheotan Lizard - amish overlord - done
Dujat Worm - Mood - done
Durrit - Eloran - done
Geth - done
Gimpka Rat - Briarfox - done
Gnu - amish overlord - done
Gormi - Briarfox - done
Kalich - Briarfox done
Kiyet Lion - Briarfox - done
Kryl - Dalmeth - done
Kylori - Dalmeth - done
Magera - Dalmeth - done
Merch-Bat - brytta leofa done
Plains Ox - Cutthroat - done
Rantarri - a strange shadow - done
Ritikki - Cutthroat - done
Roc - Amish Overlord - done
Sand Bat - done
Scorpion - Delstro done
Stilt Lizard - Dalmeth - done
Sunlon - Ourla - done
Tree Arach - amish overlord - done
Turaal - ampere - done
Verrin Hawk - Cutthroat - done
Wezer - Eloran - done

First person to post a claim on a beast in this thread, gets dibs.  You can only claim one beast at a time, and cannot claim another until you have emailed me the blurb for the beast.  You must know about the beast, I won't be providing any additional information to you.

If you know an animal that's not on this list, then please email me with the name or sdesc of the animal.  If no one else has claimed it yet, and I deem it's not too IC, I'll give you the go-ahead.

This thread make me want to make another ranger/scavenger.
Greb - To scavenge, forage, and if Whira is with you, loot the dead.
Grebber - One who grebs.

I like it a lot.

Updates, Vanth? I emailed you regarding a new submission, along with ideas for others.

say (whining) Miss Vanth?  Mine isn't there, Miss Vanth.
The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong.
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

Was just looking at the animals webpage and decided to go look back at this post, could we still submit for some of these creatures, even the ones "claimed" but nothing on them yet about the webpage. I can think of three things not on the webpage yet that I could write something about.

Try emailing the producers at producers@armageddon.org. I think I saw a post saying Vanth was MIA.

But now I'm back.

I still have all the beasts that were emailed in, and will work on getting them into the bestiary.

Also, I have been wondering, is there a word like bestiary, but for a list of plants rather than animals? I can't think of one.

Compendium or Treatise would be appropriate, I think.

Or be cool and go "Plantae Vocabulum". ^^

A "botany."

Quote from: American Heritage Dictionary

     a. The science or study of plants.

     b. A book or scholarly work on this subject.
I'm gonna go all Gimfalisette on you guys and lay down some numbers.

I like 'Botany' as well.

Grebber - One who grebs.

Revised the original post to note which ones are sitting in my inbox ready to go (pending) and clearing the names from a few that I never received.  So in other words, I think the list is up-to-date.

Gimpka Rat

Gormi
Briar

And the Nonman King cried words that sting:
"Now to me you must confess,
For death above you hovers!"
And the Emissary answered ever wary:
"We are the race of flesh,
We are the race of lovers."

I mailed in about this but it looks like it never got fixed. "Saltworm" is the anchor but "salt worm" is the link. Click on Saltworm and notice it won't go to the animal entry.

EDIT: This has been fixed. Thanks Morgenes.

And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

I went ahead and did the last few, so it looks like this project is done.  Thanks so much to everyone who helped!
