    Default Revenge of the Fleshweaver! [Vote up a Hybrid Creature]

    D&D has a long and honourable legacy of mixing two animals into one. Be it the well-known Owlbear or the more obscure Squark, the fearsome Wolfspider or the humble Duckbunny, few things say "D&D" like the "Owlephants and spiderhorses" does. And so, to celebrate the spirit of the Tarantubat and the Gorillabear, I'm restarting my old Fleshweaver project.

    How does this work?

    I will homebrew new hybrid animals with your help. I will put up a list of animal groups to vote, from which two can be selected in a 48 hour public vote. Then, we will hold a second vote, further refining those animal votes and, if necessary, a third time, until we are down to two animals.

    I will then combine those two animals into one, give it D&D 3.5 stats, a short text on ecology and behaviour and, using my questionable skills at pencil sketching, a picture.

    Sounds like fun? Then please vote! If you give me any especially weird and/or awesome ideas, I might also do them right away.

    Animal groups:
    Arthropod (Spiders, Scorpions, Lobsters, Crabs, Insects, Millipedes, etc.) IV
    Amphibian (Frogs, toads, salamanders)
    Bird (You know those. They taste like chicken.) V
    Echinoderm (Starfish. And only starfish.) III
    Fish (They swim. They might be sharks.) II
    Mammal (Everything from mice to elephants and naked molerats in between. Also monotremes, for purposes of this thread) V
    Mollusc (Slimey things. Snails, squids, octopodes, mussles, clams) II
    Reptile (Crocodiles. Lizards. Snakes.) I

    A note: while I'm a biologist, I'm not going by precise phylogenic definitions.


    Finished Beasts:

    Grey Squimu
    Hummipede
    The Octocrow
    Snailstar
    Snowfairy Owlmadillo
    Tasmanian Garlic
    Viperhawk

    Birds and Echinoderms. More animals need radial symmetry.

    Twenty million bonus points if you can concoct a reason for one of these animals that isn't "a wizard did it".

    Anatomy
    The Vyperhawk is believed to be either a missing evolutionary link between bird and snake or, as others think, a mundane creature from which the mighty Couatl is merely an ascended form, hatching from the spirits of slain vyperhawks in some arcane way.
    While most of its body resembles a snake, there are several modifications in the body plan other than just the obvious, and quite large wings: along the back, it has a bony crest, mirrored by a massive, crested sternum on the chest, serving as anchor points for the massive flight muscles.
    The tongue and scent organs are, compared to most snakes much reduced, as the creature relies on its eyesight for hunting.
    Along the back and chest, there is a gradual change from scale to feather: the back scales become gradually thinner and more elongated first, then notched and finally hairlike, becoming feathers. The entire creature has a light brown colour, but with darker, almost black stripes, most likely to break up its form and create a camouflage pattern.

    Ecology
    The Vyperhawk is an aerial ambush predator that uses its camouflage and superior eyesight to either hide in trees or circle high in the sky, spotting prey, mostly small rodents. The prey is swallowed whole. For digestion, the Viperhawk retreats in its cave nest, sometimes for several days.
    The long, venomous fangs of the Vyperhawk serve mainly for self-defence against superpredators like the Mongdor and the Badger Eagle. When hunting prey, they are flipped into the mouth on a small joint at their top, to make swallowing easier.
    Vyperhawks are solitary, only rarely meeting up for mating, after which the male will build a small nest of twigs in a cave, in which the female will lay 3-5 hard-shelled eggs.

    These things should be Magical Beasts, not Animals (see Owlbear). In any case, I vote for Mammal/Fish. because otter-sunfish would be cute.

    I don't really see the reason for that. They aren't intelligent, and they have no magical abilities. But then, I also always thought Owlbears should be animals, too. "Exists in the real world" really shouldn't be a criterion in a fantasy world.

    Whenever you say "a wizard created one of these" it implies magical beast. It doesn't have to have magical abilities to be a magical beast.

    Here is how I would have presented your viperhawk (edited a bit too).

    The viperhawk is an aerial ambush predator that uses its camouflage and superior eyesight to either hide in trees or circle high in the sky, spotting prey, mostly small rodents. The prey is swallowed whole. For digestion, the viperhawk retreats in its cave nest, sometimes for several days.

    Poison (Ex): Fortitude DC 10 (1d6/1d6 constitution)

    Skills: Viperhawks have a +8 racial bonus on Spot checks.

    Note: I couldn't tell how many ranks you put into each skill. Hide has a +8 size modifier +3 Dex so it should be at least +11. If you put all ranks into Spot it has +4 ranks +1 Wisdom +8 racial = +13.

    I largely agree with you, but I still think that these hybrids should probably be Magical Beasts. From the SRD:

    Quote Originally Posted by Magical Beast Type

    In my opinion, things that absolutely would not occur if not for magical intervention (such as owlbears, howler wasps, and, yes, even octocrows), should be Magical Beasts at the very least, maybe even Aberrations depending on how crazy they are. Animals don't have to be real-world creatures (see Dark Sun), but they should be naturally occurring. In my opinion.


    All that said, I totally love and support this idea. I vote Arthropod and Mammal. I love long limbs, chitin, and too many legs in any combination. That and there's just so much awesome you can do with it, due to the insane variety in each group.

    See, we have much, much weirder animals than that in the real world. If an Octopus is an animal, I don't really see why a feathered snake shouldn't be. They are much farther away from a standard vertebrate body plan.

    I'm not saying none of these should be magical beasts or aberrations. The octocrows are. But the Viperhawk, to me, is just too normal for that. Feathers and scales are relatively closely related, anatomically speaking. Now, snakes may be far away from those dinosaurs who eventually became birds in our world, but this is a fantasy world.

    In my opinion, as it is described, the Viperhawk is an animal : no supernatural abilities, not really disturbing or alien in form, animal intelligence, and no references to it being created by some lunatic.
    I believe the Owlbear is explicitly the creation of a wizard : it is, therefore, a Magical Beast.
    The one I can't understand is the Hippogriff, which looks fairly natural to me.

    By the way, Eldan, you seem to use both "vyperhawk" and "viperhawk". Are those two official spellings?

    Back on topic, I'm going to vote for Arthropod (make that one with claws) and Bird.

    What category contains the dreaded jellyfish?

    Calling it now. It's not quite 48 hours yet, but the start was made in the middle of the night.

    So, it is a Mammal Bird (Avemammalia).

    Vote for one each:

    Once again, these groups are sometimes based more on what the creature looks like than any actual phylogeny. I also just eliminated some of the less well known groups, especially with the birds. If you especially love a group of species not on the list (say, a Sandgrouse), feel free to suggest it.

    What kind of Mammal:

    Insectivores: shrews, aardvarks, moles, hedgehogs
    Paenungulata: Elephants, Manatees, dugongs
    Xenarthra: Sloths, armadillos, ant-eaters
    Primates: lemurs, monkeys, apes I
    Lagomorpha: hares, rabbits
    Rodents: mice, rats, squirrels, hamsters
    Cetacea: whales, dolphins, porpoises
    Even-toed ungulates: pigs, hippopotamuses, camels, deer, giraffes II
    Odd-toed ungulates: horses, rhinoceroses, tapirs
    Chirophtera: bats
    Carnivores: cats, bears, seals, dog-likes

    What kind of bird:
    This one I had to trim down massively. even if I just went out and eliminated everything I didn't know myself, there's still just too many groups of birds left.

    Waterfowl (Ducks, geese, swans, grebes)
    Fowl (Turkeys, chickens, pheasants)
    Gulls and waders (snipes, gulls, terns, puffins, plovers)
    Albatrosses and petrels
    Penguins
    Pelican-likes: Pelicans, frigatebirds, cormorants I
    Stork-likes: storks, herons, ibises
    Vultures: vultures, condors
    Flamingoes
    Raptors: hawks, eagles, kites, buzzards, ospreys I
    Doves and pigeons
    Parrots: cockatoos, parrots, lorikeets, budgies
    Cuculiformes: cuckoos, roadrunners, hoatzin, turacos
    Owls I
    Apodiformes: swifts and hummingbirds
    Kingfishers: kingfishers, bee-eaters, hornbills
    Woodpeckers
    Songbirds (non-corvid passerines, pretty much, for this contest)
    Corvids

    I like my ravens, and nothing says Native American Spirit Dream like a coyote covered in feathers.

    I've taken the liberty of formating your lists into nice, neat tables, Eldan. No offense is intended, but feel free to use them if you like. Note, however, that they've not been updated from the OP/Post 19, and so will likely need to be modified.

    Tables inside:

    I'll cast my vote for Rodents and Ratites. I know, they're not on the list. They should be.

    If you feel like both adding ratites and using the tables, here's an entry for them that you can copy/paste into the list:

    Ratites | Ostriches, emus, cassowaries, rheas, and kiwis. | [center]1[/center]
    Are any of my tables still broken?

    elaboration of a post I made, explanation of my homebrew, my Social Security number, or just a friendly ear.
