Dwarves are even heavier than they look (bones of stone) - one reason they don't care for water, as they simply cannot float - and I expect the same reason they're not keen on getting too high up in the air.  Earth is very literally their element, with Fire being quite compatible, but Water and Air.... brrrrrrrsht!  (shudders).

And "Teratorn" is too good a name not to easter-egg (hint hint)!

Wow, it looks as if we've enlivened  all sorts creative alleys with this "giant bird" discussion. All of the enthusiasm around here makes me feel as if I've found a home fitting for my passionate personality.

I must ask though, do I have permission to begin development on a falcon of immense size in an area such as Nybelmar? The place matters not to me. You tell me what's best, and who am i to argue.

Thanks all,
Tad

i don't see any problem, though i've not got any authority on the matter. but Nybelmar has a fair few good herbivores for your bird to go swooping after. i'd advise that you start the entry and if more knowledgeable minds than mine raise objections then you can amend as you go. btw, sorry i wasnt much around to welcome you to the dream, so, urr, welcome! :D

Thanks for the welcome. I will begin work on the falcon entry, and if ultimately it doesn't work, it won't be the first or last time I've been forced to throw away a peace of my imaginative work. In fact, I've experienced that most ideas must at the very least be changed to something very different from what you originally imagined before they are truly workable ideas. That's just one of the many trials a writer or artist must get used to if they are to be successful.

Well, we can use a big aerial predator somewhere... (But honestly, a bird? We are the Exotic Continent! Why not a giant praying mantis? Or an amphibian? A flying squirrel perhaps?)

Well, if Mira'd rather have flying playtipi in Nymb., I'd love to see them over here in Sarvonia :) I donno, I think its just the Raven-Eagle-Falcon, North-Central-South thing I like- I'm a big fan of symmetry :P

Would be a bit too much for Santharia I think, as we already have the gryph there, but could also have a place in Northern Sarvonia methinks.

The way I saw it is the Gryph was in Sanguia, and maybe this falcon could be in the desert? I'm not sure, I think I may be influenced by Assassin's Creed ;)

Perhaps they could reside in the Vindel Mountains of Northern Sarvonia and hunt the surrounding area. I think that it's just time for me to get this entry started, and we can decide on all of its finer points as we go.

I have a suggestion for you, Tadius.  This will involve a little work on my part, but that's not a problem.  Perhaps you could locate them on the Kanapan peninsula in Northern Sarvonia. There are NO large predators there and I've always found that to be problematical.  I can rewrite the entry with them there if you like.  Let me know if you'd like to do this and I'll adjust the entry accordingly.

Then Alysse, where would you like the giant Ravens?

The Vindel Mountains are just north or the Kanapan peninsula are they not? Would this be close enough for your purposes, Alysse? Or do i need to move them further south. If so, where to exactly?

Thanks,
Tad

If you'd like to put them there, that would be fine with me, but then they will be competing with other predators for food, whereas if they are a little further south, there will be lots of food, a milder climate, and no competition. That's why I suggested that region.   Perhaps you could put them in the southeastern range of the Vindels, and have them nesting there but flying into the grasslands to the south after prey (I imagine one of these critters could carry off a Furno calf fairly readily, not to mention leverets and mimsys.)

But it's really up to you, this is your animal.  As one of the Northlands moderators, my job is to help you integrate it, not tell you what to do  :D 

I'll keep an eye out for this beast and will do my best to check it for you when it's ready for comments.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do!   thumbup
