Creature Creation 2.0

Since more then a few people wished to participate in a competition for the best creature creation I am starting a new competition.  Each week a specific type of creature will be set, and whoever wants to enter can.  There will be 10 over all, and the highest point total wins.  Each week, however, there will be a weekly winner.

Placing 1st is worth 10 points.
Placing 2nd is worth 7
Placing 3rd is worth 5
And participating is worth 1.

Please sign up here if interested, and look to this post soon for the 10 types of creatures.

Ok, stats will not be considered here, just like in the first contest by Paraform.

The 10 weeks broken down.

First week  - Hybrids -Must be part one thing and part something else.(doesn't neccessarily have to be part human).  This includes but is not limited too..Lycanthropes (were... wolf/bear/tiger/etc), Naga's, Manticores, etc...  Must be a mix of two  or more creatures, but can be any combination.

Second week - Automoton - Mechanical Creatures, made in forbidden labrotories, by insane creators.  Wizards, eat your heart out.  

3rd week - Naga.  Ya know we had to do it, right?  

4th Week - Paranormal.  The Paranormal is not just limited to spirits, spectres, and spooks.  Let your imagination go wild explaining the unexplained.

5th week - Mentalist.  Regardless of human, humanoid, or something else entirely some creatures possess mental abilities above the norm.  Telekenisis, Telekenetics, Telepathy...what could these abilities do in a battle?  We will find out.

6th Week - Parasitic Creatures.  We have creatures that feed off life, mana, and magic.  What else might these creatures look like and feed off of?

7th Week - Freeform - Can be any type of creature at all, of any tier.

8th Week - Crystaline - Gems, jewels, crystals, and other 'innorganic' material sometimes make up some interesting creatures.  ((Thinking about excluding dragons from this one, depending on feedback from everybody))

9th - Celestial.  Beings of light, holy beings, and beings from the positive plane.

10th - Horror.  Things from your worst nightmare.  Undead, demonic, or just things too terrible to comprehend.

I'm hoping to get a judge that won't want to compete .  Rather have all the participants I can get.  Oh and need your opinons on the creatures.  Had a few I was considering that are not listed, so if any problems with the list majority will rule and if neccessary some can be replaced.

Edit : Barring objections the deadline for the first week will be the 6th.  If you are going to be unable to complete it by that time, please hcm me.  Extensions are possible.  good luck

Wizards, eat your heart out

Er, you can't actually eat your heart out because the human head does not bend that way so in order to eat your own heart you would have to remove it before eating and so it would already be out and you still would not be eating it out.

Moving on, the creature list sounds good.  Will this be a "you must compete at all times" thing or can people jump in and out?

Also, do we need to fit it into a faction and have upgrades and all that?

The contest list looks good, but I'd rather judge this one, Mytical. I really have things to do this time around, because I have to catch up on the Unique Heroes thread. I will judge, if that's fine with you.

Hybrids, eh?

Hmm...how about...
Not sure if I'm allowed to make a whole line of creatures, but here goes.

Week 1 Entry:

       --> Troskavit
Shambler
       --> Lupifolin

Level 5 Unit: Shambler

Visual Description: The Shamblers are creatures of earth with a lower body identical to a tree, and the upper body of a lion.

Their legs are tree trunks. They have the arms, body and head of a lion, except that the coloration of their skin is a greenish-brown. Leaves cover part of their body.

Origins/Detailed Description: It is unclear if they are animals or plants. When they are upgraded, their appearance changes as well. It is for this reason that none have truly seen the true shape of a Shambler. Some say that they are the children of animals and plants. Others say that they are the protectors of the forest. All anyone knows for sure is that they have always existed. They are as merciless and powerful as the trees themselves and are terrible enemies to have. Nothing can stop their deadly charge once it has started.

Stats (yes I know, not considered, but still! ):

HP: 54
Attack: 10
Defense: 18
Speed: 4
Initiative: 9
Damage: 7-9

Abilities:

Large Creature

Inertia - Attempts to reduce this creature's initiative fail horribly, instead increasing it by the exact amount it was to be reduced. (Example: Expert Slow is cast on this creature. The Slow acts like an Expert Haste instead.)

Trample - This creature runs over any opposing small units on its path to the main target, dealing 1/3 normal damage to them (this cannot be retaliated).

Level 5 Upgrade 1: Troskavit

Visual Description: They have 4 trunk legs instead of 2, and their feline appearance is more fierce and intimidating. In addition, they have a light red glow around themselves.

Detailed Description: The Troskavit are chosen by Sylanna herself to protect the forests closest to Irollan. None knew of their existence until a recent Necropolis attack was thwarted by them. Even more savage than the Shamblers they upgrade from, they show no quarter to those that would defile the sanctity of the forests they call home. Attempts to recruit these creatures into the Sylvan armies have failed...sometimes with fatal consequences for those involved in the parley.

Stats:

HP: 65
Attack: 18
Defense: 10
Speed: 5
Initiative: 9
Damage: 8-11

Abilities:

Inertia, Large Creature, Trample, Momentum

Momentum - This creature's Trample damage increases to 1/2 normal damage while it is being affected by a spell that alters Initiative.

Level 5 Upgrade 2: Lupifolin

Visual Description: Retains the two tree trunk legs of the Shamblers, but has a complete upper body makeover. Its upper body is now that of a wolf (arms, head and all). It is covered in red moss instead of leaves and has a slight green glow surrounding it constantly.

Detailed Description: The Lupifolin are a strange breed of Shambler. They are not sacred to Sylanna, or to any other Dragon God for that matter. They were created as a byproduct of the corruption and destruction that Irollan suffered when Nicolai the Vampire Lord invaded Sylvan lands. As a result, they suffer from Dark Magic curses during battle. However, they have long since learned how to mitigate their effects and, in all truth, can actually benefit from them. They thirst for revenge and will suffer whatever it takes to have it. Docile and benevolent under normal circumstances, their thirst overtakes them in the presence of Necromancers and the Undead. Their fury in such battles is without renown.

HP: 54
Attack: 10
Defense: 18
Speed: 7
Initiative: 12
Damage: 10-10

Abilities:

Large Creature, Afflicted, Immunity to Vulnerability, Immunity to Puppet Master, Adaptation

Afflicted- When this creature starts battle, it is cursed with Slow and Weakness at Basic Proficiency. These curses are permanent and cannot be removed. When this creature attacks an opposing unit, it causes Slow and Weakness on the struck unit. Both curses last for 5 turns on the target.

Adaptation - The negative effect of cursing spells is halved on this unit. Additionally, this creature deals 2 additional points of damage to enemy units while cursed, for each curse (so its base damage is actually 14 because it has two curses on it 24/7. ).

Enjoy!

If I can only enter one unit, then I'll have to think about it.

Since there are weekly winners as well as an overall winner, feel free to jump in anytime.  Sith will be the one judging the entries.  I too will share my impressions, but his score will be final .  Good luck all.

No, upgrades and fitting into faction are not neccessary.  I tried to make them as free as possible so people's imagination could soar.

Unless Sith thinks differently, I say any number of creatures can be entered per contest.  Upgrades are not neccessary, but can be given.
