Garganornis Strasserensis: The Bomber Goose
ElMike99 posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveGarganornis Species: Garganornis Strasserensis DIet: Herbivore (opportunistic piscivore) Temperament: Cheeky Territorial Abilities - WIld ones will call nearby dinos to aid it hunt down an intruder. - Pick up small structures and creatures with bite attack (can’t deal damage to anything but foliage) - Regen stamina while gliding (flap when sprinting, glide when not, nosediving increases speed at the cost of height) - Provides insulation to rider and anything nearby - Feather armor (Natural armor just like the Shadowmane, but it has durability, once depleted turns the Garga looking like a featherless chicken but still capable of flight) - Damage reduction against projectiles, elemental dragon breath (not vampire dragon), and explosives - Feather coat can be sheared with a sickle or delicate harvesting from Therizinosaurus (greatly damages feather armor) (no armor, no damage resistances) - Feathers are polymer substitute - Eggs are used to make extraordinary kibble - Saddle turns the garga into a bomber plane (shakes neck in flight, wind gust attack while on land) - Flapping wind gust attack (same as dragon) (saddle adds bombs to attack) - Immune to fear effects from dinos like Yutyrannus and mammoth - Honk scares creatures just like Yutyrannus‘ roar - Nests spawn in the wild, they may have Garga eggs, random dino egg, random juvenile dino, random loot Weaknesses - Can’t do damage with bite attack (can only damage vegetation) - Herbivore (needs veggie eggs to “force feed heal”) - Feather armor is greatly damaged by sickles and Theri “tickle” attack - Saddle may not provide armor (balance against feather armor) Wild Garganornis Strasserensis would be called in less scientific terms… a nuisance at best and a menace to the neighborhood at worst. It’s a giant cleptomaniac with enough strength to steal not just shiny equipment, but also the survivor wearing it, and even small structures. Such behavior is backed up by a waterproof and highly dense coat of feathers which doubles as a natural armor and weatherproof suit, a bravado or lack of common sense which makes it immune to the hysteria-inducing roars from the Yutyrannus, and a honk so loud it is able to scare away most predators for a short time. Taming To tame an adult Garganornis would be impossible due to being too territorial, the only option is to steal and hatch a fertilized egg. Only a sneaky enough survivor or one with a strong enough mount would dare steal one of their eggs, for they’ve managed to pull on a reverse cuckoo bird by stealing the eggs of other creatures and raised them as their own, almost as diverse as any tribe’s stables, all of which will come to aid their parent when a creature (or survivor) dares to steal their young or treasure. Those who succeed will earn a greatly valuable mount. Tamed Once tamed, the Garga will prove to be a great new asset to any tribe’s stables… - Travel: The Garga is able to land and float on the water surface (just like the Pelagornis), its ability to regain stamina mid-flight (when not sprinting/flapping, will glide as if it’s a gliding suit), and its feather coat keeping at bay both heat and cold, makes it a great traveling mount and companion. - Egg farmer: Besides the Garga’s eggs being used for cooking Extraordinary Kibble, other creatures tend to be more tolerable to egg snatching when the thief is a Garga (perhaps is that they’ll know that their offspring will be well cared for, or are just reluctant to chase them off, being a literal “wild goose chase”). - Breeding: Garga’s feather coat is a perfect insulator, turning their bodies into natural hatcheries, add their strong instinct to care for young dinos (Bonus to imprinting and slowed hunger on babies) and you’ll have a great nanny. - Raid bombing and resource deploying: The garga’s saddle reduces the weight of explosives and ammunition, plus its innate great carry weight and great stamina reserves, allows it to work as a carpet bomber and mid-raid resupplier. - Organic Polymer source: The Garga’s feathers can be sheared off with a sickle or with a Therizinosaurus’ delicate harvesting, this will leave the garga unprotected for a while (reduces the feather armor durability in exchange of Garga Feathers), but the feathers are a great substitute for polymer. - Hazard Removal: The Garga’s feather armor gives it resistance against explosives, dragon breath attacks, melee attacks from weapons and tames, and even projectiles (reduced damaged from all of them), making it great as a turret tank and safely activating the defenders’ traps. (Countertactic: Have a Theri “tickle” them to rip through its feather armor) Spawning points - Nests in many places, but will favor mountains (specially if there’s a beach, river, or lake nearby) IRL version: The real Garganornis was a flightless relative of geese, swans, and other waterfowl; the cool thing is that it had a small eminence on its wings, which would allow it to use its heavy and dense wings as a hammer. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garganornis
dossier Cymbospondylus, the colossal crustacean crusher!
ZCI5250 posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveDossier Text: "Wild: In the bogs and marshes of the Island, one can find the serpentine Cymbospondylus paludraco lazing around in the water. This basal ichthyosaur will defend its territory aggressively, often going toe to flipper with sarcosuchus and even megalodons. Cymbospondylus seem to enjoy feeding on crustaceans and occasionally small fish. It can even crawl onto land for short periods of time. Domesticated: Tamed Cymbospondylus can be a worthy companion for tribes due to their incredible versatility. A tamed cymbospondylus can crawl onto land for short periods of time to fight or flee from danger, or even to ambush unsuspecting tribes. Furthermore, Cymbospondylus can grab small dinos and drag them underwater to meet a murky demise." Silly words: My concept for this cymbospondylus was of a versatile sorta amphibious ichthyosaur that would be fun to use and also good for both pve and pvp. on the pve front, cymbospondylus is powerful enough to rival tusoteuthis and most swamp creatures, and on the pvp front it can grab things like a kapro and also does 1.5x damage to bugs, so it can be a good counter to karkinos soakers. I also just wanted to have one in the game because they looked cool lol REMINDER: Do not vote on this for just the abilities, because WC is likely to change them! (dossier by yours truly)
Euparkeria, The Amphibious Pack Hunter!
XEN0F0X posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveCommon name:Eupar Scientific name:Euparkeria Gigantis Time:Mid Triassic Diet:Carnivore Temperament:Aggressive in groups Wild Euparkeria is a wolf sized, river dwelling crocodile that usually hunts in pairs. Its one of the more effective pack hunters Ive seen on the island, with groups being as small as two, to packs big enough they could be called a swarm. Euparkeria, depite being a crocodilian, spends almost no time in the water, though its comfortable going in and is pefectly good at swimming. Euparkeria instead prefers to run down its prey in packs and tear them to peices, like the reptile version of a wolf. Another thing to note is their stance, Euparkeria will often move from four legs like a Kaprosuchus, to two legs like a theropod. When on all fours, Eupars wont drain their stamina too quickly, but on two legs, they will move faster at the expense of stamina. If one comes across a wild Eupar, remember that their stance means wether they are going to attack you, if on four legs, they are minding their own buisness, if on too legs, then the Eupar may be thinking of you as a menu item. They also seem to have a direct rivalry with Kaprosuchus. Tamed Euparkeria are easily tamed through conventinal knockout methods, so long as one can separate the pack, and once tamed are an excellent all terrain pack hunter. One can easily bring their pack of ten Eupars to fight a Rex on a mountain, a Megalodon in the sea or a swarm of bugs in a cave, just dont expect one Euparkeria to pull its own weight. Euparkeria on their own are easy prey, and they also seem to become depressed when alone, note: a lone Eupar, is a dead Eupar.
