Two Part Challenge
Round 1: Submit a template
(Dates: 8/24 - 9/7)
Players created template creatures based on the bio below. Templates were judged on creativity, adherence to the bio, simplicity, and how well they animate. This round is over.
Winner: Raktha Template By Conswella
Round 2: Submit a finished creature
(Dates: 9/10 - 9/24)
Using the template above, submit a creation that shows us how you think the Darkspore Raktha NPC should look. Decorate and paint the creature, but don't alter the base template in any way. Entries will be judged on how cool they look.
Rakthae are the children of two epochs of mutation on Cryos: the Crogenitor era, and the Darkspore era. Originally, they survived Cryos’s descent into an ice age, the Rakthae evolved into double-extremophiles. They flourished when the Crogenitors ripped Cryos with rivers and oceans of plasma, gaining the ability to metabolize plasma itself (especially advantageous with the planet’s dwindling food supply).
But when the Darkspore invaded Cryos, they bent the beautiful creatures to their own will. Protected by halos of flame, the Rakthae inflict flaming devastation on any who attack them bodily, and aim fiery vengeance at any target. Whether defensive or offensive, Raktha flames are difficult to extinguish and can quickly turn terrible wounds into terrifying death.
What will the challenge winner(s) get?
The winner of round 1 will be featured. Winners of round 2 will be featured and
may be included as NPC designs in Darkspore! Credit will go to both the template and final creature artists for any creations that go into Darkspore.
