This strange, colorful monster bears a great resemblance to
Earth's legendary monster Gigan. It has two large, curved blades for
arms that must make any activity that isn't murdering massively
uncomfortable, tiny insectile eyes, and a large set of mandibles. It
does not look like it belongs in this world. Perhaps it came from outer
space? The Mantis Ant can burrow underground and disguise itself as an
innocent rabbit. Ridiculous, you say? I agree! But nonetheless, this
thing's got a weird growth on top of its skull that resembles a cute
little bunny. If you don't look carefully, you'll be caught off guard
The name of this creature seems to imply that it is a new type of bee.
Certainly, it is yellow and black and flies around. They do not seem to
have stingers, but do emit unintelligible buzzing sounds. They are
large and round, and stick mostly to open, green pastures. Fairly
harmless, but can be annoying.
A living donut, blueberry in flavor. I know that it's against the
rules, but... I did eat one of these. Don't look at me like that! A man
has needs! I... I was so hungry... They have two small eyes, but I just
thought they were sprinkles! I didn't know it was sentient until I'd
taken my first bite and then it was too late.
The most boringly, yet misleadingly, named creature I've
encountered in this world. They are likely called ghosts because they
are semi-transparent and float in the air, but they are absolutely not
supernatural. They are covered in filthy hair, and have far more in
common with Earth's "dust bunnies" than with specters. They seem to
have semi-solid cores which gather all manner of garbage. Their eyes do
not imply intelligence.
Some sort of priestly creature. Tarot Masters wear long, elaborate
purple robes, covered in golden ornaments. They have large, floppy ears
and small beaks. They are possibly a cross between a donkey, a duck,
and an ape. These guys seem to be at least a little be precognitive.
A breed of long necked pig. It's nowhere near as handsome as yours
truly. I'm not sure where the "doctor" part comes from, as none of them
seem to be practicing physicians. On the contrary, they seem to enjoy
causing bodily harm more than anything else. They fight using rockets
and their long, powerful necks. Think of a primitive, quadropedic pig
with the neck of a Brontosaurus and you've got the idea.
Card Captor Stacy:
I don't understand this name either. I assume this creature was
named after the person who first discovered it. This is yet another
long necked abomination, but unlike Shizumas they are not nearly as
smooth and pretty. Stacies are covered in wrinkles and have enormous
heads. They are gangly, and are for the most part human shaped. These
monsters are enormously tall, some reaching hundreds of feet high, but
can be taken down by clever warriors 1/100th of their size. It's like a
homeless giant crossed with a peanut.
||This world is populated largely by creatures with names
that sound nothing like animals, plants, or anything else. The ones who
discovered and named them must have been extremely self-centered. Or,
perhaps, they were named in tribute, as a form of love letter, by some
lonely scientist to his long-lost love. This is a world steeped in
||That's all for this month. Next month we will go in
search of a cold, icy world in order to pay tribute to our great lord
Santa Claus. See you then!
