Rurik Posted February 26, 2008 Report Share Posted February 26, 2008 Well, here are some random thoughts on it. They should be carniverous or omnivorous (I saw a thing on PBS about how 'lucy' evolved/survived in Africa that said that herbivorous diets don't support large enough brains for sentience - take that vegitarians! - not that we really require real scientific feasability thogh). They either ignored or maybe herded their humans (or whatever rides them) for food before training them to ride. Maybe they ran into traditional horse barbarians who moved in ontheir territory and used archers and lances and barding giving them a distinct advantage in combat, so this new mount race needed riders to be able to effectively fight back. They need some way of controlling their riders, so mental powers or magic makes sense. Maybe some tribes treat humans as slaves and oppress them, while others are more 'enlightened' and treat their humans much better, almost as equals. The lizard/dinosaur thing sounds cool, or maybe big lions or something like that. Such a creature would probably need to be able to kill an armed human with natural weapons to risk arming humans (maybe not with mind control - sentient horses would work just as well I suppose). Any thoughts or comments or ideas to add? I've been away for a bit and want to finish Portal and have some Ideas for an Orc-like race I want to get posted as well but I'll give this all some effort once those things are done.
