Featured Entries

Mandgi

The mandgi have a bean-shaped body with a hard carapace. A mandgi's head resembles an eight-fingered hand, and its face consists only of a gaping, drill-like mouth. Instead of hands, it possesses giant noses on the sides of its body. On its back are dragon-like wings, and on these wings are its eyes, and it possesses no eyelids or eyebrows.

Apidee

Apidee are small bee people with four arms and two legs, with either dark gray or dark brown skin. They have a round head with a pair of bee-like antenna and black or yellow hair, sometimes black and yellow. They have two largish black eyes and wide gleeful mouth. They have a fuzzy white 'collar' of fur.

Most of their body is covered in a thin black carapce that is decorated with yellow stripes, the design and number varying from individiual to individual. The have a bulbous bee-abdomen thats similarly striped in black and yellow and ends witht a stinger, and have a set of bee-wings on their back.

Oomn

The oomn are humanoids which have skin that is pitch black to chalk white and everything in between. The oomn have a glassy-eyed look that indicates that their souls have been crushed even before birth. They have a generally very gray and depressing aesthetic; just about everything about them looks depressing, from their terrible posture to their penchant for ill-fitting, colorless clothing, to that constant 'sad puppy' expression. They tend to cover their mouths with anything, ranging from thick scarves to high collars. Sometimes they wear masks.

Tegyp

Tegyps are a humanoid alien species that appear, for the most part, fairly plain aside from one or two strange qualities. Tegyps do not have hands or heads connected to their body in any way, instead their arms end at the wrist with their hand floating in the position a normal hand would be, this also applies to the neck and head of the tegyp. The neck of a tegyp ends around half way up, with a pyramid shaped head floating above the neck “stump”. This pyramid shaped head has no mouth, and has a stone-like surface with a single eye in the center of the main face. This is the most common appearance of a tegyp, however some tegyps may in fact have multiple eyes, on multiple faces of the pyramid, although it is most common that the “dominant” eye, so to speak, is much larger and serves as the main “face” of the pyramid head.

Aftik

The aftik is a bipedal raptor like creature, with most of them being around 5-5’6 feet in height. It is covered in sturdy feathers including its iconic “crown” on its head. They have a “guiding light” on their chest; this is just an oval that most aftiks are spiritually attached to.

They have a very long and thick tail which they use to balance themself while hopping. While aftiks do walk normally, once they pick up speed they begin to use their extremely powerful legs to hop along the landscape. Aftiks are known for their speed and have been recorded to hop at over 45 mph. Most aftiks are very weak and will run out of steam in a matter of minutes.
