Dino Dossier: Snow Owl

Common Name Snow Owl
Species Bubo chinookus
Time Post-Holocene
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable Yes
Command admincheat summon Snowowl_Character_BP
  • Wild: Discovering Bubo chinookus was a pleasant surprise. Owls are remarkable creatures, but they're not the type that could survive an extinction level event on their own. Since it never strays from the patch of frozen tundra we encountered, I believe the Obelisk was the key to its survival.
  • Domesticated: With its swift flying and frigid attacks, Bubo makes an excellent single-rider support mount or scout. The latter is helped by its tremendous vision, which it can share with its rider via its antenna. Not only does this make enemies easier to see, but Bubo can also spot Element veins with ease, even when they're underground.

  • Known Information: Clearly a descendant of modern Strigdae, Bubo shares many traits with its smaller ancestors. For example, it excretes waste in the form of pellets, which make excellent fertilizer, and their large wings let them save energy during long, silent flights. They even hunt in the same way: by diving towards the ground to attack their prey with powerful talons. However, these talons also secrete a chemical with a high freezing point to slow down their prey, and they can even unleash this chemical in a wide cloud, temporarily freezing their foes.

Dino Dossier: Velonasaur

Common Name Velonasaur
Species Velonsaurus Spinavultus
Time Post-Holocene
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Omnivore
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable Yes
Command admincheat summon Velonasaur_Character_BP
  • Wild:
    Velonasaurus spinavultus dwells in the small desert found outside the abandoned city, which is particularly fitting, because it looks like it's growing several cacti right on its face.
  • Domesticated: Given its versatility, Velonasaurs spinavultus makes an excellent single rider mount in most combat situations, but it's particularly effective when defending an entrenched position. It's like a living, breathing gatling gun. Just be careful when giving it a congratulatory hug or pat on the head. Getting spined by your own war steed would be a rather embarrassing way to go.

  • Known Information: As unfashionable as its facial fins might be, I recommend keeping a close eye on them. While said fins are folded inwards, Velonasaurus behaves like your average therapod, attacking with claws and teeth. However, when those fins are spread wide, Velonasaurus can rapidly fire a storm of spines at its prey. However, while in this state, its mobility is greatly hampered and it will eventually wear itself out. Therefore it sometimes prefers to unleash its spines in a single, deadly burst. By spinning around and firing a salvo of spines at the same time, Velonasaurus can defend itself from every angle at once.

Dino Dossier: Managarmr

Common Name Managarmr
Species Draconis auragelus
Time Post-Holocene
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable Yes
Command admincheat summon Managarmr_Character_BP
  • Wild: Draconis auragelus appears to be directly related to the stealthy Draconis obscurum. Their stature, gait and ability to dive through the air are all similar. However, where Draconis obscurum scaled cavern walls to gain the high ground, Draconis auragelus takes a more bombastic approach.
  • Domesticated: As a mount, Draconis auragelus can carry multiple adult humans without losing any of its impressive mobility, and its freezing breath makes it a good choice in combat. Whether you're looking to hunt, do battle or just travel with ease, it makes for an excellent companion.

  • Known Information: In the middle of its hind feet, Draconis auragelus' bones form a hollowed out cylindrical shape that acts as a combustion chamber, which it fills with an explosive gas. When ignited, this gas propels it upwards, letting it "jump" in the air multiple times. From there, it can create a smaller burn in said chambers to hover in place, or dive at its prey. Like the icy variant of Draconis vipera, Draconis auragelus can slow down its foes with its frigid breath - though it's able to take this one step further and freeze its prey solid. Perhaps that's because it's used to living in the tundra environment on the surface, as opposed to a desert.

Dino Dossier: Gasbags

Common Name Gasbags
Species Mopsechiniscus fluitobesus
Time Post-Holocene
Diet Omnivore
Temperament Passive
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable Yes
Command admincheat summon Gasbags_Character_BP
  • Wild: It was always hypothesized that a member of the Tardigrada phylum would be the last species on Earth in the event of a global apocalypse, so in some ways, the existence of Mopsechiniscus fluitobesus is completely expected. Its size and method of travel, however? Less so.
  • Domesticated: While a poor steed in battle, Mopsechiniscus is a fantastic beast of burden. The hairs on its back let a single rider steer it without a saddle, and it carries an incredible amount of cargo for its size. A small caravan of these could see us swimming in resources in no time.

  • Known Information: Mopsechiniscus is slow and ineffective in a fight, so to survive, it tends to choose flight - literally. First, it inflates itself like a balloon, briefly slowing down and gaining durability. Then it launches itself into the air by expelling gas through a series of sphincters in its underbelly, which it also uses to slow its descent. Yes, it's as...unusual as it sounds, but Mopsechiniscus makes the most of its inflatable nature. In addition to jumping, it can use its stored up gases to push back aggressors, or even float on water.

Dino Dossier: Gacha

Common Name Gacha
Species Macrodryadis Crystallinus
Time Post-Holocene
Diet Omnivore
Temperament Docile
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable No
Command admincheat summon Gacha_Character_BP
  • Wild: A gentle giant, Macrodryadis crystallinus spends its days foraging for food in the dense forest it calls home, though it rarely has to look very far. Thanks to its extraordinary digestive system, not only can Macrodryadis eat just about anything, but it can also turn a diet of scraps into a mountain of precious resources
  • Domesticated: Though its crystals prevent Macrodryadis from wearing a traditional saddle, if its rider is willing to sit in a basket that hangs from Macrodryadis' neck, then they'll find its long claws are well suited for mining resources. Personally though, I'd keep one around just for the crystals. The free presents, the way they glow at night...totally worth the potential nausea from the basket saddle.

  • Known Information: Instead of producing excrement, Macrodryadis grows glittering crystals upon its back, which fall off when they reach their full size. Shattering these crystals can yield precious resources, as Macrodryadis is somehow able to transmute the materials it eats into something entirely different. One of our pilots likened the process to the gachapon machines from his memories of growing up in Japan, and I guess the name stuck.
