Jude June 29, 2022 at 2:11 am 1 year ago Alkartikas aren’t completely altruistic. Since they’re the only lifeform that isn’t a plant, they have to eat plants. So they take care of plants by providing them with sufficient to grow properly and then chow down on the plants. Are you sure that alkartika isn’t spraying them so it can later eat them? Jude June 29, 2022 at 2:12 am 1 year ago …sufficient WATER to grow. Nova June 29, 2022 at 9:06 am 1 year ago Maybe they eat each other. Nomi June 29, 2022 at 2:35 pm 1 year ago I dunno, they could be photosynthesizing animals. Alien ecosystems… Tsath June 29, 2022 at 3:11 am 1 year ago Sheet bend Rikard June 29, 2022 at 4:28 am 1 year ago I sure could use an alkartika in the garden. Frankie D. June 29, 2022 at 4:58 am 1 year ago High center of gravity, little arms that can’t flail around that much. Shouldn’t be a problem… Thorfinn June 29, 2022 at 1:27 pm 1 year ago I’ll reserve judgement till we’ve seen its legs. Also, if it’s a fast mover and/or high jumper the other things may be less of a handicap to it, if not downright advantageous. SteelRaven June 29, 2022 at 11:39 am 1 year ago Then the Doom music kicks in Herb June 29, 2022 at 1:53 pm 1 year ago The alkartika can’t have an unlimited reservoir, so that should eventually take care of itself. I don’t know what to do about the graughas, unless it’s only ill-tempered because it’s thirsty. Muzhik June 29, 2022 at 3:51 pm 1 year ago Maybe the Graughas are allergic to water. No visible nose, so nothing to use to filter out dust or other aerosol’d “things”. Has to be breathing through it’s mouth, so point the alkartika at it. It might flail its pointy bits around, but eventually it will have to open its mouth to breath and then you can soak its lungs. Who knows? Maybe it will go through what in humans is called “dry drowning”. someone June 29, 2022 at 4:06 pm 1 year ago The graughas vaguely reminds me of the pinky demon from good old Doom. Except he’s got hairy legs. And horns on his limbs. And a big bushy monobrow. But still, kinda familiar-looking. Nova June 30, 2022 at 8:21 pm 1 year ago I’m seeing Doom’s Baron of Hell, possibly after an accident (possibly involving being hit by a rocket launcher) and major reconstructive surgery. Efogoto June 30, 2022 at 2:26 am 1 year ago The Stribs are pulling a fast one … it’s a Graughas Con. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
