Kismet - Scar
In this fixed morphology challenge it's up to you to modify our template creatures to fit the bios provided below. Your entry should be in the form of a Sporecast tagged mcnecrochallenge containing four creatures based on templates provided below.
The set of creatures you create should form a cohesive group to have a connected look. Entries will be judged on creativity, adherence to creature bio, how well they animate, and how well the creations in the set relate to each other.
Goal aesthetic for all creatures:
1. Tusked Lamprey
Indigenous to a nightmare world, the tusked lamprey is a revolting predator. Covered in razored horns, the beast possesses a repugnant mouth-hole ringed with fangs. Forget its small size: even from a distance, the creature is deadly, capable of murdering its target with necrotizing blasts from its inexhaustible lysogenic pustules.
You may not modify (scale, move, remove) the spine, legs, or mouth. You may swap the feet as long as their size doesn't change. You may add parts anywhere.
Beware pterodynes. They’re obscenities capable of ripping the brains and spine from their victims in seconds. Should they approach from behind, they can project their terrorpathic aura to make their prey scream, flail and flee in panic. But if they employ their stealth ability, you’ll never even see the approach of your own death.
You may not modify (scale, move, remove) the spine, legs, arms, hands or mouth. You may swap the feet as long as their size doesn't change. You may add parts anywhere.
3. Clawed Spectre
Seeded on a ruined world as a sick joke, the genetically-modified clawed spectres were ineffective at keeping down the vermin population because there were no vermin to eat. Clawed spectres generally therefore live on diet of each other. Ironically, they also possess ability to resurrect their dead. They slaughter their victims from a distance with blasts of their spectray. Despite their cannibalism, clawed spectres possess sufficient intelligence to use tools, and to employ and revise attack strategies. It’s common for explorers to underestimate clawed spectres. Once.
You may not modify (scale, move, remove) the spine, legs, arms, or mouth. You may swap the hands or feet as long as their size doesn't change. You may add parts anywhere. The coiled ram horns may be modified/moved but not removed.
4. Death Mollusk
Death mollusks crabs are small, vicious parasites of low intelligence, imbued with the horrific ability to drain their victims of energy. Highly mobile and able to strike from a distance, death mollusks are a threat even in death, exploding the moment their disgusting innards cease functioning.
You may not modify (scale, move, remove) the spine, legs, arms, hands, or mouth. You may add parts anywhere.
