EXERCISE Creature Creation Challenge #12

Discussion in 'CREATING WORLDS & SETTINGS' started by Malkuthe Highwind, May 25, 2013.

  1. Creature Creation Challenge
    This challenge explores one facet of worldbuilding: creature creation, as the title says. Whether or not you're a worldbuilder, at one point or another, you're bound to create different kinds of flora and fauna for your world. This challenge brings two new things to the table: first, all the submissions for this challenge will be put into a "bestiary" of sorts in the Worldbuilder's Guild which will be a resource for yourself and anyone who needs creatures for their worlds; second, every week, there will be a different difficulty for the challenge.

    The Difficulty Levels (open)

    Difficulty 1 [​IMG]
