Ive just recently joined the dream, and i was thinking for my first entry, i could do a new pig or boar. here are my ideas on it so far.

Name: not quite sure yet, still thinking on that one.

Overview: A wild pig with little or no fur, lives in flat grassland areas, is a carnivore, and has a very long then snout used for burrowing.

Territory: the northern provinces of Santharia, such as Nermeran, Vardynn, and the northern part of Enthronia.

Appearence: Anywhere from 1 ped, to 1 and a 1/2 peds, from tail to tip of the snout. Has either very short fur or no fur at all, and has a rough hide. Also has very powerful hind legs for running, and a long narrow snout for burrowing.

Diet: Is a carnivore who uses its long narrow snout, and sharp teeth to feast on small rodents such as field mice and Kuatu squirrels.

Well that is just a basic summary of what i got for it so far. I was just wondering if there are any objections to this, or to certain parts of this maybey. or if you have any advise on whether this would be a good starting entry, or anything else for that matter, i would be glad to hear that to.If not then i am going to go ahead and get to work on this right away.:thumbup  Thanks in advance.

hi, Here I have some propouses for name, like Grassland boar, "Province" Boar (change the province for a place) or maybe just Big Boar, I never saw one, but I think two peds are very big, so the name would suit it.
Its good, short but very good, I don't see many problems here, actualy no problems, but maybe just make it a bit large or more descriptive would be good.

ishmaelion; thanks, im not quite sure about the places either, still got to work on that one.

soorrilmiesfer; Thanks for the advise, i really like your ideas. I think im going to either call it a grassland boar, or an Enthronian boar. very good suggestions. I plan on making the entry a lot bigger and more detalied, thats just what i had thought of for now. Still got a lot to do on it.

Well thanks both of you, and thanks again soorilmiesfer for the name ideas.;)

Don't forget to compare them with the wild pigs which go out on the grasslands sometimes as well!

Better make it a classic porcine OMMNIVORE - another large carnivore to compete with our many big cats would not be desirable!

Apart from that I really like the concept.  We must have wild boar in a medieval universe (even if Obelix isn't around to appreciate it...) :p
