stumbles in, drunk on weariness. Woo.. Dizziness @_@; I tried to Categorize aminals. Um. There are a lot that have yet to be placed. I was thinking about a group of animals that aided sorcerors. Such animals might include imps and golems, but I wasn't quite sure about the name. I tried to not go over two words in the name. It was hard. I was also wondering if Zyloths are reptiles or not.

you have a water mammals and a flying mammals section...why not just have a "uncategorized" mammals section...the flunki could go in there...the wolverine too probably...

just a thought...looks really good though

Many than for your categorization, Rayne! Very nice work:)

Suggestions: We can have a section  for "Rodents", where we can put in both Mice and Rats as sub-categories.

Also would suggest to put Horses and Cows in an own section. In german we'd say "Nutztiere" (but Altavista only translates this to "Utilizable animals" - maybe there is a better term?).

As for golems, imps etc.  - would put them simply under "Magical Beasts".

domesticated refers to anything that has been tamed really...so dogs and cats (house cats anywho) would belong in there as well...i think domesticated would be too general but it could be used...plus there are some categories that would fall under domesticated and non-domesticated...if you had a domesticated pig as an animal (like a pig in farms on earth) than pigs should be under the domesticated section but i am sure you do not want wild pigs and wild boars under that section...

1) I'd rather not combine the Flying Mammals and Water Mammals into one. Yes, at the moment, the groups don't have a lot of entries, but you have to keep in mind that Santharia is still growing and expanding. It may be that those categories might gain entries. I also think just throwing them into "Uncategorized Mammals" seems a bit messy.

2) I added a rodents Section, Arti, including Mice, Rats, and also Rabbits/Hares, since they are also technically Rodents.

3) I added the "Utilizable Animals" and aded horses, cows, and also the Ox we had in the TBP section. I wasn't sure if sheep would fall into that category or not, so I just added them in just in case. I was thinking goats, too, but some goats are wild.

4) I added Magical Beasts. I'm only a bit fearful that some of the Combination and Mythical animals might also be magically inclined.~_~'' Help.

5) Domesticated animals wouldn't work for a section because it would end up splittting up species that shouldn't be split up e.g. Caprici (WIld Goats) and Domesticated Goats. I think we should try to classify than more bsed on species than on function, if we can.

For Magical Beasts... I believe a better term would be Familiars... as that is what mage 'pets' are called, normally. Plus I think it sounds better... but... eh... *shrugs*

my suggestion wasn't to combine water and air mammals...it was simply to say that we already had those so why not just have a "general" mammal section....just call it plain mammals...rather than refering to things as uncategorized you could have 4 or 5 major groupings then break it down into seperate things after that...

for example:

Mammals
Fish
Reptiles
Amphibians
Birds
Magical/Mythical

then in the mammals section it could be broken down into Land Sea and Air...then broken down into Rodents/Cows/Goats and the like...

this setup that i am suggesting here would be completely lopsided at the present time in favour of mammals since their section would be so big...but in the future if things were developed to around the same number then things would expand...

plus this could also be added as something that you need to think of before you create a beast

::sticks Marsupials in there somewhere::

Things like Manticores and Griffons that are a combination of animals might be hard to place. If Arti likes it, I'll be happy to categorize it that way, though.

This is what I think for the To Be Placed animals:


The Izaac should be under mammals

The Bogsnapper should be under amphibians

The Mimsy would be a rodent

The Flunki would be a rodent

The Great Wolverine should be under combined because it is like a wolf but sort of a bear or maybe it should go under wolves

The Mogliar maybe should go under mammals

Netherbeasts are definately magical beasts

The Nul'tum should probably be under amphibians

The Quallian Sýs'neán should be under rodents

The Ulgaroth could go under utilizable animals

Zombiis would be definately magical because they can only come alive through magic

and Zyloths could go under reptiles.

There isn't a Mammals section as of yet. Mimsy seems very fox-like to me. I don't know if you woudl consider them rodents. The Flunky is like a porcupine, right? It might go under rodents. Nul'tum has fer, and thus wouldn't be an amphibian. Are we sure that the Zyloth is a reptile?

Zyloth would most likely go under that and in the Nul'tum entry it says that it is an amphibian. As for the other things, thats just what I thought.

The Nul'tum entry says it is amphibious, not amphibian. An Amphibian is an actually category. Amphibious just means it can live both in and out of water. The platypus would be considered an amphibious animal because it lives in both water and on land, but it is technically a... marsupial, I think.

And I'd like to make sure Zyloth's are repitles.
