Dino Dossier: Leedsichthys

Common NameLeedsichthysSpeciesLeedsichthys conviviumbrosiaTimeMid-JurassicDietPiscivoreTemperamentDefensiveDomesticationTameableNoWild: Leedsichthys conviviumbrosia is probably the largest fish in the waters around the island. Its meat is also extremely succulent, a surprise given its size. It is often traded with the same value as Prime Meat, and colloquially called ‘Prime Fish’. Of course, not all of Leedsichthys’ meat is this high quality, but most […]

Dino Dossier: Diplocaulus

Common Name:DiplocaulusSpecies:Diplocaulus NatatorianutrixTime:PermianDiet:PiscivorousTemperament:SkittishDomesticationTameable:YesRideable:NoCommand: Wild: Presiding almost solely within the island’s swamps, Diplocaulus Natatorinutrix is a small amphibian that primarily eats minor fish.

It has traits that seem to come from many types of jellyfish. It posses the size and shape of large egg-yolk jellies, the powerful sting of certain box jellies, and the bioluminescence of deep-sea […]

Dino Dossier: Angler

Common Name:AnglerSpecies:Melanocetus AnglerpescumTime:Early Cretaceous – HoloceneDiet:CarnivoreTemperament:Aggressive to small fry, otherwise skittish!DomesticationTameable:YesRideable:YesWild: Whether its size is caused by adaptation to the island’s other inhabitants, or by cross-breeding with another larger species, Melanocetus Anglerpescum is the largest form of Anglerfish I’ve ever heard of. Typically found only among the deepest, darkest expanses of the ocean, this creature preys […]

Dino Dossier Manta

Common Name:MantaSpecies:Manta MobulaTime:Early Oligocene – HoloceneDiet:CarnivoreTemperament:DefensiveDomesticationTameable:YesRideable:YesSaddle:No Wild: Here is another example of a creature that seems to have evolved beyond its historical traits. Everything points to this being a saltwater ray, but Manta Mobula has developed the ability to swim into the island´s rivers and shallows, as well as through the open ocean. Perhaps there were originally […]

Dino Dossier: Kairuku

Common Name:KairukuSpecies:Kairuku WaitakiTime:Late PaleoceneDiet:PiscivorousTemperament:FriendlyDomesticationTameable:YesRideable:NoWild: Kairuku Waitaki is an amazingly docile and friendly creature, everything but fish. Honestly, I’m not quite sure how Kairuku manages to stay populated across the island’s colder climes, with the many predators stalking these frozen lands.Domesticated: There is no reason to tame Kairuku for combat, since they are useless in a fight. […]

Almost impossibly large, it can actually fit a full grown human adult on its back, though just barely. This is a dangerous prospect, though, as secretions from Beelzebufo’s skin and saliva have a narcotic effect on most creatures.Domesticated: Tamed Beelzebufo make for strange […]
